I pretend that I'm straight in real life if that counts.

This one?
How the hell is this graph supposed to read? I get the 3 labeled ones and can make out that 2 and 6 are straight and gay, but what are 3 and 5?

I feel like I'm meeting a unicorn anytime I see them. Ironically, the last two I met had unicorns as their sonas. Is it just me, or are there mostly 'curved', so to speak, furries rather than straight ones? Plus it seems like there's a lot more male furries than the females, at least amongst the fandom in general that I've personally met so far. What're y'alls experiences?

Funny thing is that from what I found, a lot of straight people actually do join the fandom, but if they stay for 5 or more years then their chance for turning gay or bi increases exponentially

^ This.

A decent amount of people turn bi or gay simply for being in the fandom. I've met several people who were practically straight at first, then found the right person to come along, and boom, gay, or the very least bi.

I consider myself completely straight, but sometimes I feel that I'm slowly turning bi... And it all started after I joined the fandom!

If everything worked and looks like it does in good digital art I'd be pansexual, but let's be honest here things aint as perfect as they are drawn out to be. So in terms of real life situations I'm pretty straight because women realistically have the features I find attractive.

It's a scale.

The higher the number, the more gay a person is. It's for the weirdos like me that are bisexual, but lean towards one gender over the other.

Seems unnecessary when conveying straight, gay & bi statisic since it adds clutter but I do understand it

I'm a straight male and married, though my kinks may suggest otherwise, which confused me earlier in life.

The thing is here all the furries that are straight will say that here but it doesn't show how outnumbered they are because no one is going out here to say they are not straight.

Very true.

Some of the best gay, yiffy RPs I've had have been with straight furries. : )

I'm a straight female who wouldn't mind having a ... 'male part'. Not to use on females xD

actually it's tanja now
I'm straight 'n' male, though I'm pretty sure furry NSFW sites are trying to exposure therapy me to male genitalia. It's a conspiracy, I tell you!

Let's go down the list:

-Straight
-Female
-Fursona is not a cat, canine, or dragon

Why, I'm the rarest fur of all! Bow before me, peasants!
Actually, from what I can tell, lesbians are rarer than straight or bi ladies in the fandom, which kind of cuts into your stats. You could probably game the system by switching from a rabbit to a pika, though. (Any lagomorph is good, honestly; they're all cute and smart.)

I used to know purely lesbian furries tbh. If you want to find them, just look for furries who RP warriors cats, there's plenty there.
This, this my sir is extremely accurate!

Also I swear most females in the fandom will say that they were brought in by A person they were dating once. Anyone else notice this?

You bet it's a rabbit! Bun-buns need more love!

Would it be bad if I said I looked desperately to find A animal that was not A bunny for A certain person because I had a itching feeling it wasn't what fit them best.

(He likes the option he has now much better after thinking about it. He's decided on A mountain lion & it was thought of by himself.)

Such as myself, admittedly, was brought into the fandom by someone I dated in the past. Though, it was more of I learned about it because of him, but he kind of made me want to avoid furries for about a year before I actually took interest in checking the fandom out.

I think it's about individual points of contact versus spontaneous discovery rather than anything to do with romance specifically, which I would chalk up to a number of factors. On the male side, most furries are queer dudes, and many come into the fandom as a form of escape and a way to create a new community outside of the norm; on the female side, it's frequently more about participation in a community with a pre-existing friend group with shared interests, particularly the creation and sharing of artwork, with the element of fantasy and outsider solidarity being important as a benefit but less important as an original impetus on average. Part of this, I think, also has to do with how men and women are socialised and what sort of priorities drive them to seek out or join communities, but that's a much bigger question.

There's also the additional factor of what kind of fan a person identifies as, and I think that many women who are broadly into anthro animal art don't think of themselves as furries but as fans of the particular furry-adjacent media which they identify with, so self-identification is less common—perhaps in part because the furry fandom is so dominated by men, and so what it means to be a female furry is different from what it means to be a male one. I'd love if more women were a part of this fandom, but this particular aspect of the situation strikes me as something of a snake eating its own tail.

I could be wrong, of course, and everyone's experience is going to be different, but I feel like it's mostly fair?

I straight but the fandom is trying to convert me! this is a plead for help!

There is one question that I ask people who think the fandom is going to "convert them" though i'm not saying in some way it can't i'm pretty sure everyone has had experiences where they appreciated another person of the same sex to where they wanted to spend the rest of their lives with and/or have sexual relations with.

So answer this question verbally as fast as you can with as little in depth thought as you can.

The answer does not confirm that you aren't straight, but can confirm if you are straight in my opinion.

Hey I started out not liking guys for any non personality based reasons but that quickly changed.

Quite sure Kirk's remark was jokingly/playfully instead of accusingly.

Nah. I've been a Furry since, what, 2005? Still straight and going strong. :p

And fucking proud of it, too.
