Thoughts on Hatred

The main question is why? Why do people hate furries? It seems popular misconceptiion takes hold much better than the truth in most cases, and the outcome most of the time is hatred. I ask my furry comrades to try at least to spread the truth, or put out a good word! Heres what I do. I printed out this page: www.anthrocon.org/about-furry , and I wrote "furs rule" on my knuckles. people ask, Whats a fur??? and i respond with excitement and show them the page, asking them to read it with an open mind. This process has "converted" so to speak, some of my friends! I even got a teacher liking it! So, friends, I ask you to go out, and change, or even stop, the hatred as best you can! You CAN do it...it just requires determination!

Good Luck!

I'm pretty sure you're a troll, as I'd really like to think no one is actually stupid enough to do these things, but seeing as this is the furry fandom my giving you the benefit of the doubt is almost certainly unwarranted so I will ask you this.

How do you think you're friends/teacher will feel about the fandom when they discover cub porn, and how do you think they will feel about you :V ?

Because overtly sensitive people automatically equate light mockery and teasing to frothing at the mouth, ignorant hatred. Nobody cares about furries; everyone loves to give them a hard time.

And constant worrying about furrydoms public image and all those nasty misconceptions will feed the mockery every bit as much as the very misconceptions you're crusading so hard against. People take the concept of Crash Bandicoot and Bugs Bunny, treat it as a civil rights struggle, and this doesn't deserve to be laughed at, why?

Seconded. This. ^

The world doesn't revolve around your insecurity.

People will hate things, based on their personal standards.
I hate emos, scene kids, mallgoths, and whores, just to name a few kinds of people.
Does that mean some self-righteous attentionwhore coming up and demanding that I "reconsider my misconceptions" and "don't hate, appreciate" is going to change my mind?
Fuuuuck no.

In fact, all it would do is make me fall on my ass laughing, and probably drive me to personally harass or troll said attentionwhore.

This, too.

Do..... you really need reasons?

Usually because people associate furries with bestiality
Because the fandom is so far from normal and people don't like things that aren't normal
Because some furries are oversensitive, making it easy for /b/tards and others to pick on them
And because a small amount of furries are the extremist- you know, those ultra annoying types that every social group has? Now combine them with the other three points.

And I saw a few people mention mainstream media and news etc, combine that with everything too.

That was so truthful my eyes orgasmed as I read it.

My head is hard just like my..
I love how people like to shut down a person's thread before they can get their message out; seems like even in the furry fandom their is hate and ignorance. Meh, but that goes without saying.

Removing hate from the world is like removing the stink from a hunk of poo...

Keep it real, keep it clean... I hate emos... I said it, I too hate. :3

I've never met anyone in Real Life who actually hates furries. It's mostly just an internet joke from sites such as 4-chan and SomethingAwful.

The only reason it propagates is some furries (like yourself) still seem to care.

I know there's such a thing as having comic characters based off real people, but photos or it's not true.
Joel is a creation of Immelmann's. He's not based off a person.

"But why?

Beats me.
Seriously though... When I came up with the idea, I was working at a movie theatre. Really a dreadful place, to work, I'd recommend you all avoid it if at all possible. Anyways: the thing about a job like that, as I'm sure a lot of you already know, is that you meet a lot of very stupid, frustrating customers, and if you said what you really wanted to, to their face, you'd be fired. Or arrested.
So because of this, Joel was born as a sort of tool for me to say what I kept wanting to, without fear of, ya know, physical assault. The rest grew after that."-About Concession

I'd like to see some proof as well, if you please.
Oh, herro. Glad to see you got the note.
