Meh, this just goes to show that Americans are a bunch of prudes. The Dutch wouldn't bat an eye at this shit. People do it in Amsterdam parks all the time!
Seriously, I'd rather these people represent me than any dog rapist, that's for sure.
Ok, this really isn't excusable. It's not a matter of if other people thinks it's perfectly okay and Americans are prudes; they were given expectations which they failed to meet and have costed a group of perfectly nice furs an event.
Well, we know it wasn't a doctored photo, because there were dozens of witnesses.Again assuming that it was furs who were unintentionally caught by passersby and not trolls or a doctored photo.
But... what happened to the passerby being part of the town counsel? The post says there were witnesses, not just photos.
Yes, yes you have. Because it's not like furries have a history of doing dumb shit like this.Because OF COURSE the witnesses couldn't have been just 'kids' because kids can sometimes have wild imaginations. The witness couldn't have been JUST a city official because if they had any history of disliking furries their accusation would immediately come under fire. When you combine the two, it looks like all bases have been covered for an insta-death sentence. Maybe I've just watched too much Law & Order.
Why do we have to hide the identities again? I mean, if the other people lose their jobs, I don't think a witch-hunt and ensuing drama is really a bad thing.
If that's too much, just ban them from mainsite if they're on it, and not allow people to post shouts on their pages.
I don't think it's right that the normal members of the fandom have to be constantly wary of sexual deviants ruining it for the rest of us.
The fandom is too tolerant about this shit. It really has to end. I mean, sometimes I feel ashamed to be a furry. As SIX put it, this is certainly why we furries can't have nice things.
No troll would do this, unless they were really, really stupid. They'd be crossing the line of Poe's Law. My guess was it was two "proud to be furry" lifestylers who don't give a damn about what people think of them. That's fine...just not when it affects others.
