Is it wrong to have your fursona the opposite gender?

Sorry if this is in the wrong location, but, would it be wrong for someone's fursona to be a different gender than they are? For example a female person having a male fursona? Or vice versa. I am just really curious about this and want to know other's opinions. Personally I think it would be alright, because I know someone who is in that situation.

You can make your fursona whatever you want it to be.

^ this right here. people make fursonas opposite genders all the time so as long as your not using it for malicious reasons it's perfectly fine.

Nope. Do what you will with it and have fun. That's what it's all about.

I find nothing wrong with that, the only thing that sucks with doing that is that people always assume your sona is the same gender as you.

I like to genderbend my 'sona. :) heck maybe she'll be male one day for good

Your sona is you. Saying its bad or wrong to have it a different gender is like people telling someone they can't be male because they were born a girl. People have different meanings attached to their fursonas and it varies from person to person how much it reflects them, sometimes a gender change is a reflection of how the person feels, or the sona is simply a character with another gender that is not them but relates to them

See, I asked because I am biologically female but I prefer to be male, hence why I changed my name to Chris, so Ryuoko makes me more comfortable because it's my second chance to be that gender. Thanks for all the feedback everyone ^г^

I'm biologically female. My primary fursona is male, and my secondary fursona is female.

You can make your 'sona whatever you like! I know tons of furries who relate more to the opposite gender or sex, or who identify as trans, or who feel essentially "gender-mixed" or "gender-neutral," and who use their 'sona to express that. I think that's great.

Like others have said, it's for fun, and it's however you want to represent yourself! As long as it isn't malicious, be whatever you want to be. Although, I don't often see people posing as the opposite gender in the community with the intention of doing wrong onto others. I've seen it in MMOs though, where men would pretend to be women to get shit from lonely, easily manipulated men. I could see that application within this community, though I've personally never encountered it.

They say that a fursona is a way of expressing what we see as ideal or what we'd want out of ourselves. But, I dunno, I just dick around with characters and give them the gender that they chose for themselves.

In that case, it's kinda usual and expected.

It's as wrong as people pretending to be overpowered, popufur, godmodded animals when in reality they are scrawny, less attractive, and weak humans.

It's simply how you present yourself and has 0 connection to reality

No, your fursona has to be as realistic and 100% accurate to your day job as a hacker-ninja-raver-gaming-flying spaghetti monster.

One of my fursuit characters is male, and noone has ever complained about that.

Just don't overdo it. No awkwardly huge bulges on guys, no watermelon boobies on girls. That would be inappropriate.

I don't actually have a fursona (YET) but when I do, it get one, it will be a girl. I've always been a girl in my mind and heart but am biologically male. You should make your fursona however you see yourself or however makes you happy, as long as you don't use it for malicious intent.

I'm not entirely certain about that one, but my more pressing question is- Is it wrong to have your fursona be of a different race than you?

According to SJW's, "absolutely not you scum!" However, I see no problem with it if you did your research and aren't doing anything offensive to the culture.

I kind of figured that would be the case. I know where the SJWs are strong enough and that their secret agenda is to actually repress free speech and artistic expression- usually college campuses and job sites- and I'll have to be on my guard for them. I guess I'll have to know the setting, and who else is there before I go out and do it. And of course, I wouldn't be so stupid as to think that the First Amendment applies EVERYWHERE in the US. But obviously yes, I should be able to enjoy a Furry convention in fursuit, even if others think we're weird.
