The Most Fair And Reasonable Opinion On Furries Ever

I've also come across non-babyfurs who think that having a Marci badge constitutes "flaunting infantilism in their face." I think what you're describing has more to do with tact than lifestyles but I'm not sure up to what point you're talking about here.

A better example would be those who wear diapers 24/7.



Again, you're talking about tact (or lack thereof) and not lifestyles. As far as furries adapting weird lifestyle habits I've definitely seen some pretty far out stuff but I still don't think it's worse than some stuff I'll see in the leather/bdsm crowd.

Well there is a good justification and a bad justification for calling out on "you're flauntiing it".

Asking the furs around you to treat like a baby, kind of is flaunting it don't you think? Asking for others to tell you want to do? Whining like a 5 year old when you don't get your way and then complaining "Hey it's just who I am, I'm a baby fur" when you tell them to stop that.

That's the thing people literally try to turn these things into lifestyles and then wonder why people have problems. The inflation/fat thing now has it's own life-style...it's called the Gainer Crowd. It's like...wtf? You love the art, combine it with food and now you are trying to get diabetes.

Baby fur has a baby fur lifestyle now. It's called adults trying to get away with acting like a baby 24-7.

A lot of it may be tact. Learning when is the right and wrong place to bring it up. Trying to force others to cater to your thing, or bringing actual sexual things in certain places, like mostly public areas...that's not exactly a good thing.

That said I've got to go, class is about to start.

I agree... Anything that goes that far gets pretty creepy. If it's an interest than great, if people want to play out roles than great but if people can't separate play time from real life then that's bad.

If you're not a fur then why does your species say "Wolf"?
o I see you forgot the Kemonomimi part, I'm into a bit of anime. Kemonomimi is equivilant of Humans with animal parts I.E. tail and ears.

Should I had say non-furs?

I mean is it REALLY THAT important?

Faggots.
I'm joking gawd

as a person not in but continuously researching the fandom there are those that get along fine with furs due to we dont see you as your hobby but as a person.

Just those who are Lifestylers mostly irk us and give ya a bad rep

I think this is one thing that irritates the non furrs like the OP, the fact that a lot of people within the fandom who do have strange, weird fetishes, go around and flaunt it.

I am all for role playing, and if people have strange fetishes good for them, but there is a time and place for it.

There are parts of the OP's post I agree with, but when he got to the part where he pretty much said that the fandom is a fetish, and those that say it isn't are lieing. As well as about people going to cons are ALL fetishists, pretty much labeling everyone with the same label like most non furs do, that was what got to me.

Just aswell I am not a lifestyler then ;)

I am glad there are some non furs out there who see us as a person and not the hobby we like.

Why does everything have to be sexual? I'd love to see this logic applied to model train enthusiasts.

Wow... then my grandfather, who took up a third of the garage with his train setup... wow, he must have had quite a fetish problem, hmmm...? Yeeesh!

I know it's been said already, but Furry =/= Yiff/Creepiness. Yes, there is porn in the fandom. Yes, there are creepy fucks in the fandom. It doesn't apply to the entire fandom though. For example, I joined the fandom purely out of interest in anthropomorphic animals. I do not believe I am a raven trapped inside a hyoomun body or any such nonsense, nor do I fap to furry porn.

There's more than one kind of Furry, ya know.

Perhaps, but the good type of Furry tends not to be vocal. What type tends to get seen most often outside the fandom?

Guy with Krystal Pin-Up Image as his Avatar, in a thread that briefly mentioned Starfox when talking about some console's gaming selection: "OMG KRYSTAL SHE'S SO HOT! HOTTEST GAME CHARACTER EVE-"
Random schmuck #0231: "We're talking about games right no-"
GwKPUIshA,iaTtBMSWTaSCGS: "FUCK YOU HATER, SHUT THE FUCK UP TROLL I DON'T SEE YOU PICKING ON FAGS OR MAYBE YOU DO YOU ARE A FUCKING TROLL GOD WHY DO YOU ALWAYS FURSECUTE US YOU RACIST..."

I am of the fair belief that any fandom has a right to drag said members of their fandom behind a woodshed and put them out of their misery*. You wouldn't tolerate it if someone said the word "spice" in a cooking thread and another person started raving about how KJA "ruined" the Dune series, or if a thread mentioning someone's Veteran Father passing on was derailed by a bunch of Gears of War fans raving / ranting about multiplayer.

*By them I mean the rest of the fandom.

I don't care what people think about it. It's my thing and I met a lot of friends through the fandom.

Screw what people say. They should care about their own sad little lives. Assholes.

TL;DR version.

Most furries know close to nothing about actual real-life animals. They only care about the aesthetics of animals. And even when you meet a furries that are "deep", they are either some kind of nature spiritualists or people who sort of know things and yet do not -- they seem to intentionally misinterpret even some of the most basic things about animals and nature. I blame Disney.

In any case, the majority of furries are absolute idiots and even the ones who aren't so bad are in it just because they like drawing cartoony animal thingies or fap to furry porn without shoving it to other people's faces.

Furry =/= RL animals.

I fail to see how any of this is relevant.
