Survey - Orientation and Species

Ziggy Schlacht

Hasn't figured out this "straight" business
I like interesting data with no practical use, so I'm collecting some. Linked below is a quiz asking your fursona's species, gender, and orientation. I want to know if there's any manner of correlation. So I need responses. Please fill out the form below, should take you a couple minutes at most. There's 21 species options, plus a fill in, 6 gender options and 5 orientation options. With any luck I got 90% of you.

Note:
For hybrid species, please choose the dominant one. So all you Folf's ask "Am I more fox or more wolf."

What is it with all this blatant anti-raccoon racism?

This is hard for me as I'm still struggling to figure it all out, so I can't fully answer the survey. I'll just add my thoughts about it here and you can attempt to translate it into labels if you so please.

'Sona responses:
- Large cat hybrid, so that one is easy.
- Cis female I guess. I refer to her as female, she uses female pronouns, but I purposely designed her species to be androgynous looking to avoid gender label stuff that I personally have struggles with.
- Orientation I have not decided on yet, but she does have a male mate. My difficulty here is I can't decide if I want her and her mate to have relations or if I'd just rather them... not.

Me:
- Gender identity matches mine? Eh. Here's where the hard part comes in. I've had a hard time with gender from a young age. Partially because kids would tease me and call me a boy, partially because my voice is deep for a female and I often get asked if I'm male or female in voice calls, and partially because my own interests align more with males (thanks to my brother being a huge influence in my life). On top of that, I have never felt comfortable in my body, it straight up disgusts me. But could I imagine myself as a guy? Idk. I just know I hate everything about being female. At this moment in time I am considering the label "agender", but I'm still not sure that's right. Fluid may be closer, but that doesn't feel right either. :v
- Orientation matches mine? For the most part, I can say this is true. Part of why she is undecided is because I too am undecided. I have strongly considered just labeling myself as ace because sex is not an important part of a relationship for me, I could live without it. Part of me thinks maybe I would have an easier time finding a mate if I did that label and then looked for others like that, that maybe saying I'm open to it isn't enough, especially considering there's specific channels for aces to go through. That said, I'm also not opposed to it with the right person, and who knows, I may come to enjoy it with the right person, so is it even fair of me to myself or a potential mate to say I could live without it... ugh.

y dis such difficult topic

@Kinare - I did avoid "N/A" or "None of the above" for gender/orientation because I wanted people to commit, as well as avoiding too many grey areas. I already have a stupid large number of categories for species, which I expected. Rolling in the grey areas of gender and orientation and I've have 1000 combinations. As it is, I probably need to group species by relative animal size to get... anything. In your case, there's "demi-female" and "demi-male" which you may want to look in to.

To provide some guidance - both your orientation and your gender identity does match your fursona. Intent was basically asking "Did I choose this because it represents me, or did I intentionally choose something that doesn't." You clearly chose the former. As far as labeling it, understand that this is not comprehensive and not all that scientific either, so ultimately we can roll with "good enough." For you, I think "agender" is close enough, in that you're not distinctly picking an option, but nor are you saying you flit between them. Gender fluid has been described to me as "I feel feminine today, I felt masculine yesterday" which doesn't match your words. As far as orientation, if you're considering ace, roll with it for this. "Demi-sexual" is something I have also heard. Again, I avoided the less defined categories for the sake of minimizing combos.

I'm not sure what you're saying here.

To everyone else - I have 80 responses. Tells me some interesting things, but nothing concrete. There's like 5000 furry discords, surely this can get shared to a few more.

What is this?! No absolutely not, this is an absolutely serious matter and i would never joke about this. To the owner of this survey, I’d like a revision. This will not do at all, no sir, don’t you dare disgrace me with this “Other” nonsense. I identify as a microwave and I want to be able to select it as a choice! I want it and I want it NOW
> : (

don’t worry my fellow microwave bretheren, I am standing up for our rights! >=D
Microwave is close enough to dragon. They both heat things.
