I highly recommend you all to come out as a furry to your parents and classroom and neighbors. Print of the porn and pass it out. Be loud n proud! :')

In high school I had a shirt kind of like this and I had soooo many people wanting to be my friend/boyfriend. Got a lot of sex out of it too

You are a very lucky man, lol. I mean I have a gf, but no because I wore a shirt like that lol.
Now I REALLY want to wear that shirt to see what would happen, especially since I'm in a IT (computers) shop at my school so basically it's meme and cancer central everyday.
RIP Skins! (I can't believe I just said "RIP Skins", lol)

I love the suits that people make, they are amazingly well crafted and just look incredible.
I'm just not completely certain that I want to make a suit or at least partial of one. Especially since my parents don't know that I'm even into it, or probably what it even is. Lol
And my friend is trying to get me out of it, or don't become one he said.
Don't get me wrong, he's a really good friend, but he doesn't want me to do this. I'm still doing it anyway.
And not to be offensive but he said that most furries are gay and lesbian, which both of which I am certainly not.
I just want to be apart of something I enjoy, and at least it's not a gang or something like that.
Well statistically speaking your friend isn't wrong...according to surveys and most sets of data about the fandom, the majority of the fandom is either gay, lesbian, or bisexual/pansexual. Autism is also significantly more common in the fandom than the general population. but it's not really a bad thing, if anything this fandom has made me so much more confident than I was last year, to the point where I'm even going out to job interviews and stuff. (a near impossible task last year) I'm breaking down so many of the walls I caged myself in with (pun not intended) and getting a lot more social and outgoing again. This fandom has certainly changed my life and that's not something I would ever call a bad thing. personally I think your friends are jealous that we are unapologetically ourselves and don't care what people think of that.

I totally agree with you on that, and I'm really glad that this forum (even though I've only been on it for like one day, lol) helped you socially and mentally in society. This is what true furry fandom is, helping out other furs who just need someone to talk too and share their interests and ideas.
I love every single one of you, and nothing will ever change that. I made more friends in a day on this site then I did this entire school year...lol.
Seriously, this is what the fandom, or at least the forum should be. A place for people to just be themselves, to relax and just have fun.
So on that note, everyone.....furries are the best thing that's ever happened to me, and I'm honored to say that each and every one of you contribute to this site.
Thank you all! XD

Pros of wearing such a shirt: Lots of sex, people know you are a Furry.
Cons of wearing such a shirt: ???? None that I can think of.

Though probably won't be such a good idea if you're a straight guy though. :p
You got to own who you are. Lol
Also, I had to explain to my friend what yiff was because he didn't know.
Well, there's a difference between owning who you are and going around what could be considered advertising/shouting who and what you are.

It's on you if you say you are a Furry and people react negatively to it, not the people reacting. They might've not wanted to hear it in the first place. Be sure that the ones you tell you are a Furry to that they won't react in a negative way.

No, thank you for thinking about this. I really needed to know the answer. Thank you.
And apparently, I'm not the only Christian furry here. Lol

Heck no! Here's another example of Christians needing to speak out.

Okay, but seriously, people need to see this.

Your parents will NOT care if you're a furry....


as long as you don't show them how much you spent on your fursuit ;)

As much as I would love to agree with you, I can't. Personally, I know my mom won't give a crap. But I know how some parents are. They treat it like a "sickness". As awful as that sounds :/

So I can understand why some people may want to keep it to themselves.

Didn't read anything other then the first page but ill say how i did it, ill also add what NOT to say.

Basically i said, there is this group of people on the internet who create their own cartoon characters, they have their own personas and all of that, there are even conventions where people wear like mascot costumes and act out their characters, share and even sell art, people will pay you to draw your character if they like your style enough, i also said its kind of like say fans of anime or some tv show, only instead of just practically tracing or just making unoriginal art, all the art and everything is completely original content and is one of the most creative groups of people that have spawned from the internet.
I told my dad and my doctor, and they actually thought it was interesting and thought it was good for me to actually meet people and stuff.

What you shouldn't say is "fans of anthropomorphic animals" because it just creates confusion and you will be asked like "what the fuck is anthropomorphic?" just keep it short and sweet and don't mention anything about the sexual side, but i guess it helps if the people you talk to don't use the internet like i do, but i guess just don't even mention the word furry just to be safe.
