Thank you everyone for affirming me, but I don't know what else I expected from a furry forum. It's the stupidest thing to argue about and my girlfriend used to ok with the fact I was a furry until her furry hating brother came along and now she is just parroting what he has told her to me. The thing is that I could care less if she was okay with furries or not, but the fact she wanted to pick a fight on something so SWJish and dumb as this is a level 11 problem.
"Animals are peple to!"For shizzles and giggles, I wonder if you could goad her into creating an Animal Anti-Defamation League to combat this terrible problem? You know, show up to furry cons to protest with a bevy of cats dressed in little business suits with tiny misspelled signs? :grin:
She's always been regularly interested and properly supportive in animal/women's/human rights and stuff like that and I was very happy to find somebody regular that shared the same not radical views as I did. That's why her getting so upset about something like this is really weird and kind of upsetting for me. The way she is arguing it is that in the future animals might have consciousness like humans do but until them fursuiting is not okay because it takes advantage of their lack of consciousness and while what she says makes sense, it's just... really unimportant...
praised for historical value. Offered membership to KKK with benefits.Blackface in public area. Record reaction.
Fursuit in zoo. Record reaction.
Compare and discuss.
I'll have you know I have lots of animal friends and they don't mind when I call 'em "varmint" or "fuzzo" or "shed-factory". Cuz we're tight like that.
I was just educating him so he doesn't say the wrong word around his animal homies. A letter makes a difference
