The internet view on furries

Xitheon

I may be mad but I'm perfectly good at it.
I've been a furry as far back as 2011 when i found DMFA comic. But the tought has always been in my head thought wise, is how dumb a 99% the internet is in that i question who behind the keyboard or the maturity(lol). Like seriously all fantasy media anthros are common heck even old folklore has anthros in them. Majority who hate on the NSFW side sound like the kind that think sex is this gross taboo thing and sound more insecure than the people they bash, since a majority of there go too's are your standard fat neckbeard with mild autism.

Ignoring the flaws this community has I've yet to be disproven that 98% of the non furry community is just a ignorant shitshow with no self awareness. The 1st largest forum in the pre 2010's was Something Awful where you could get auto banned for being furry with no refund and 90% of the time more annoying that the furries that wouldn't shut up about being furry.

I know its petty but I'm i only one who thinks non furs who seek acceptance worse than the furries that take hate to seriously, in that its just a fantasy hobby not a community like the LGBT area. lol

This is a minor quibble, but using the term "mild autism" as a slur is damn rude. I mean, thanks, we already have problems socializing, make it even more stigmatized, why don't you.

And now we see the total opposite: People being attacked, harassed, banned etc just for saying that they don't like furries with discord being one of the most infamous examples for banning lots of accounts and servers just for making fun of furries (which isn't a surprise since some discord mods are furries that even allowed cub porn at discord until mainstream media started talking about it).

What is even your point?, So because cub porn was allowed that makes okay to have furry hate discords around. I hope your trolling or this is the first example anti-furry fursecution. You love inkbunny which is cub central but you lothe discord?.

Weirdos at best and perverts at worst that is what the rest internet see us as in terms of personality. However it just varies from person to person in terms of views on the furry fandom.

Can't say internet view on furries particularly changed, and it's still widely considered a weird hobby by non-furries - it's just that there are currently so many drama-worthy, actively malevolent, or absolutely-battcrap-crazy communities nowadays, and people eventually went away to poke fun at those. I mean, when your competition are flat-earthers, incels and overzealous "rational skeptics", you need much more than "I like anthro animals (and maybe related porn)" to stand out.

Kero didn't change anything, The ones that cried about him were the kind that would've ran to next thing to bash furries for. Allot of online non furries still go on about rainfurrest when there are 100+ furry cons going strong with no issue.

I think it really changed a lot and yes you are right. That photo album of rainfurrest got spread everywhere but it was a hill furries were going down on. From "lol furries shit in the pool and wear diapers" to wow holy shit they really trawl craigslst for animals to torture to death sexually.

The biggest issue is these types are the kind that will bash others for there flaws but can't handle when there called out as well, Like every furry hate site dying from there own toxicity.

There isn't a consensus. The internet is diverse. Furry has its fans, its haters, and lots of indifferent folks who probably make up the majority.

damn dude at least non furries dont rape puppies to death.
I doubt many animal abusers are also furries. Kero stands out because he's a furry. When a random sicko harms an animal, it isn't as newsworthy as when a furry does it.

you sound like you're defending it tbh and it's gross

Defending what?, Kero is horrid piece of shit. Your assuming all furries are zoophiles because what 1 furry did something vile, Why are you on a furry forum if this is your view on furries?.

Who gives a shit?, Your just being massive prick to anyone likes 18+ for some 1 loser. You just called me a zoosadist out nowhere because the kero shit is old and dead drama, get lost you immature creep your not impressing anyone.

I don't like anime and its loli craze going on but don't go calling all anime fans paedophiles for a few bad apples.

If we only had "the internet" that was judging things, everything would be much easier.

tbh I don't care about random groups hating on furries for their own reason. Just ignore them. They're not worth our time anyway. Neither do I care about the public perception of the fandom. It's not like it matters what others think.

Everyone should do as they see fit within the legal limits.

This. I think the competition for crazy has simply gotten a lot stiffer in recent years, with even furries getting kicked off the crazy train. Plus the politics war has pretty thoroughly invaded almost every corner of the internet, so furries have simply dropped off the give a damn list, as people fight perpetually over what political team they identify with.

I caused a little stir.
Furry is a weird pseudo hobby at best so getting defensive about it is stupid. Every fandom has predators, trolls, idiots, and also genuinely good people who want to see their hobby not have horrible pieces of shit (such as Kero). While narrowing the fandom down to shitty individuals is myopic at best and pretty ignorant, you can't fault a non-furry seeing stories like Kero's little social circle and saying "Holy fuck those guys suck".

I stopped being a furry for nearly a year leading up to and following that incident tbh. I felt more confident when I realized that was being dealt with by the authorities and this dude will never be able to post online again. I get flashbacks to some of that shit sometimes. @_@ But I think the majority of furries are in fact genuinely nice people who want to protect animals. Honestly, I'm not even sure how you become a furry without caring about animals, but who knows.

If it came down to it though, furry isn't important to me beyond the people I've met in it who were/are nice people. That's it. A hobby I met nice people in. This shit with [certain redacted suiter] being allowed at cons despite being a convicted sex offender is making me consider leaving for good though :/
