My friend is a spicy furry hater... help

definitely did not look at yiff last night.
This one spicy boi I sit next to in my science class just texted me, "have you ever wondered the best way to kill a large group of people at once?"
My reaction: o_Oo_Oo_O what are you on right now
"no lmao"
He responds: "go to a furry convention and spill ammonium in one place and bleach in another place. when someone cleans them up, it will react to make chlorine gas"
Me: *thinking of MFF 2014* "why would you do that"
"because furries are cancer"
I haven't responded anything else yet but what do you think I should say? I'm afraid if I defend furries with something like "What has a furry ever done to you?" then he might suspect I am a furry. And I do NOT want my school to find out I am a furry. Any thoughts on what I could reply with?

This is a predicament (I hope thats the right word for it... just googled the german version) situation.
I think the best option is to ignore that and DO NOT SAY ANYTHING ...
I wish you luck and I hope you survive... was nice knowing you ...

Treat the fandom like an interest at best. Ignore it.

Yep, that is the correct way to use that word! Also, thank you for the luck.

I agree with both of you in that I'm just going to not respond and not overthink it. I probably won't be able to change his opinion anyway. Thanks for the responses, guys :cool:

Is it bad that this is a joke I'd probably make...

Seriously though who cares. He doesn't need to know. Nobody cares in the end, don't treat it like some huge secret never to be revealed. Don't shove it in anyone's face and you're gonna be fine

This one spicy boi
Give him milk, milk makes things less spicy

"because furries are cancer"
That is true

Just ignore him, a small kid with anger like that cant do anything, or you can just ram furry stuff down his throat till he is fine with it..
...I really can't take anything serious today...

You had a friend who joked about murdering strangers because of a personal distaste. You don't need to make it about furries, you can just say "Wow, you have some anger issues. I'm going to stop talking to you now." and fuckin' drop him like a sack of...something people drop. (I don't know how that phrase works)

Maybe he has a dark sense of humor, whatever, but the tone coming across to me (a person with no context for his behavior) is that he's the sort that likes to say extreme shit to get a rise out of people, and has a "I went to 4chan once and I am a hilarious edgelord" vibe.


TL;DR:
Your pal thinks entertaining the idea of murdering strangers is hilarious. Find new friends.

Yeah, better brush it off and ignore it.
Some people need to add a filter between what they think and what they write. If he keeps making this sort of jokes, tell him that it's distasteful.

Alternatively you can respond with “what the fuck is wrong with you?” because seriously, what the fuck?
"What the fuck is wrong with you? You hate people whose interests differ from you?"
And you're just a big a moron for responding to the stupidity. It's at best an interest only. You don't have to respond as if someone dug up your dead mom and fucked her in front of the whole family.

If the guy wants to hate Furries, let him. Let him wallow in his own ignorance.

I don’t care if he hates furries. Sometimes I do too, but you don’t make jokes about gassing people at a convention. Also why do you assume I was referring to hating furries and not gassing people?

I understand this stance, and it's a great idea in general to just ignore people like this. I'd just advocate calling this guy out on his absurd behavior because, chances are, nobody does. If OP isn't comfortable doing so, that's understandable. I just think this swell fella needs someone to call 'em out.

Oh, but you DO make jokes of gassing people at a convention. The same way you make jokes about kicking puppies and drowning babies. They are JOKES. Stop getting your panties in a bunch because you don't like them. Someone else does.

I would consider different avenues:
Fuck him up: Tell a teacher about this, show the texts, and 'express concern' that the student may be planning to kill people. If anyone asks why you turned him in, just say something along the lines of, "If he's willing to kill a bunch of weirdos, what's stopping him from being the next (Insert mass shooting here.) It's extreme, but it would show people that actions, even in joke, can have consequences.
Question his sanity: Ask him what the hell is wrong with him and tell him only psychopaths kill people for stupid reasons. If he spreads a rumor about you being furry in retaliation, you can simply point out that he's a psycho who would kill other human beings for a stupid reason.
Ignore him: Just... ignore him. You go 'lol, whatever' and ignore him. Chances are, he's just being an edgy prick.
There are other options, of course, and not all of them need to be drastic, but I would advise caution when around him. Any person willing to kill or otherwise seriously harm other people for trivial reasons can be potentially dangerous.

Fill his inbox up with anonymous furry porn. He'll get addicted and change his tune.
If you do this, make certain he can't trace it back to you. If you are the only person he's done this with, then he will know.
 
Okay, so I do not understand why you consider the possibility of him joking.
Sure he may think of it as fairly strange but calling furries "cancer" clearly isnt a heartfelt or sincere act of hate towards the furry fandom. I mean calling something cancer is used all the time nowadays as "jokes".
Besides that, if you are able to truly get through to the 'real him' then take a risk and tell him. You will probably have to say that you arent into the sexuL side of it and that you only like the art style, or something along those lines, which will probably help.
Good luck,
Fade~
 
Continuation:
In this day age, you can say practically everything, whether it is for comedic purposes or whether it is your belief.
I honestly do not understand why most people here legitimetly think his friend would 'gas people'. How can you even be considering this? Also since when did having a dark sense of humour be a bad thing.

Lift your tail and spray him right in the face!

That'll teach him to be mouthy.

Also...nice new avi!

He is the meme-iest edgelord and is always showing people memes. He probably browses reddit and 4chan in all his spare time.

You had a friend who joked about murdering strangers because of a personal distaste. You don't need to make it about furries, you can just say "Wow, you have some anger issues. I'm going to stop talking to you now." and fuckin' drop him like a sack of...something people drop. (I don't know how that phrase works)
He is more of an acquaintance. I wouldn't call him my friend; he only had my number because we were in a group project together. And yeah, after this convo I will most likely never make the move up to a friend from an acquaintance.

Alternatively you can respond with “what the fuck is wrong with you?” because seriously, what the fuck?
I know right? I was a bit surprised when he texted this to me because... just... why would you even think about murdering people?

Sure he may think of it as fairly strange but calling furries "cancer" clearly isnt a heartfelt or sincere act of hate towards the furry fandom. I mean calling something cancer is used all the time nowadays as "jokes".
When he used furries as an example as people to murder for no reason it sort of felt like a personal attack, and that I needed to defend myself. It wasn't the fact that he called us cancer, it was the fact that it felt like a callout when he used furries as an example.

Ignore him: Just... ignore him. You go 'lol, whatever' and ignore him. Chances are, he's just being an edgy prick.
This is the easiest and least complex of your options. I'd agree that he is probably just being edgy and he's not actually looking to murder anyone.

He's actually younger--ask him and he'll say he's 6 years 9 months.

Yeah, better brush it off and ignore it.

Agreed. I didn't find it even slightly funny.

Give him milk, milk makes things less spicy
He needs some milk!

Seriously though who cares. He doesn't need to know. Nobody cares in the end, don't treat it like some huge secret never to be revealed. Don't shove it in anyone's face and you're gonna be fine
I don't mind people knowing, but I've learned not to go around shoving it in people's faces. In fact, I'd rather have most people not know and especially not known-furry-haters. But if someone asks about it or it comes up, I might casually mention that I am a furry, because like I said, I don't really care if people know or not.

Yes!
