Besides wearing a con T-shirt occasionally, you would never guess that I was a furry if you met me in real life.
Some of my real life friends figured it out, and didn't care.
Although the most interesting exchange I got into was with one of my friend's dad:
Him: "Further Confusion? Is everyone there confused?"
Me: "Yeah, pretty much."
Him: "People in general or just the people around here?"
Me: "Actually, this event was in San Jose, California."
Him: "Ah, say no more."
Hahahaha, oh man. That's far more amusing than the usual CSI-influenced response.
As for myself, I'm a pretty private person overall, so naturally I'm not shoving my interest in furry in the public's eye. Around the house though I don't care if company sees my art (well, save for family members seeing the porn.. if they find it online by searching that'll be their own problem, but I'm not going to share it first, haha) or the few furry pictures I have hanging up in my work area. In short, pretty neutral about it.
