That's pretty much how I interpreted the thread. The feathered mask technically isn't furry merch, as it doesn't come from within the fandom, but if a furry saw it they might wonder if I am one. As for something that was made by furries for furries, the most incognito thing I have is probably A Whisper of Wings, a novel by P. Kidd. I keep it on a bookshelf with my other science fiction and fantasy books. In the ~20 years it's been in my possession, nobody has commented or called me out as a furry because of it.I feel like this thread ultimately comes down to where you draw the line for what is furry - which isn't in itself bad, mind. It's more... "what's the least obvious thing you own that can be said to be furry-related" inherently flirts with the line between furry-related and not. So maybe that's as much what this discussion is about.
Offhand, one of the less obvious things I own that I got specifically for its connection to anthropomorphism is Anne McCaffrey's (and co-authors') Acorna series of SF novels. For stealth merch coming from within fandom, probably some T-shirt or pin or something. Kaenith's Pride Dragons are pretty high up there (I have the genderqueer, bi, polyamory, and "umbrella" dragon shirts - I'm super sad they're no longer available as a couple of them are starting to get a bit peely in the print). Amusingly, they're apparently somehow also stealth queer. IDEK.
I'd love to have some. I'd like to see what yours look like!Realistic cat plushies
