My wife and I just did simple gold bands. A friend thought they were too simple and flourished them a bit, but it was simple gold bands.
That is classy and would work for me as well.

Nah I'm gonna find a man who is as lazy garbage as me
I'm a step ahead, I'm not even going to get married lol
Speaking of which, it's slowly becoming more popular, but

I don't like marriage. I mean at all. The only real benefits it has is when tax season comes around. I'm completely monogamous but the thought of spending 40+ years with someone just isn't my cup of tea. If things go south you have to go through a huge process just to get out of it. Why block yourself in like that?

I feel ... people should be free to have the kind of marriage or relationship they want and that they are comfortable with.

I'm a bit of a traditionalist, but I've got no problem with people in same-sex marriages or polyamorous relationships. One of my best friends who introduced me to this forum is polyamorous and they definitely taught me a lot and changed my mind of a few things about polyamory. It's not really anyone's business how people love each other and everything is ethical. (I hate using ethical, but I was grasping for the right word.)

As they're loving families providing for children if they have them, I'm good.

Just throwing my two cents in.

Despite what people may believe, the furry fandom itself is justifiably scrutinized by outsiders for the antics of its userbase and an overwhelming sexual atmosphere within the fandom. This isn't to say that the fandom itself is horrible, that its primary userbase is toxic or overall unfriendly...nor am I implying that I hate being in the fandom. However, I see a large number of people state that sexual content in the fandom doesn't represent a large chunk of it.

I disagree...

No other fandom that I can think of embraces pornographic content or feels emboldened to make pornographic content as much as the furry fandom. There are entire websites geared toward NSFW furry artwork, and there's a reason why furries joke that the best way to make money in this fandom is to draw porn. This is not inherently a bad thing, however the blatant disregard of its impact on the fandom by many people within the community perplexes me. You don't find as much of this kind of content in other fandoms, and as someone who is heavy into comic books, tokusatsu, and even the SCP Foundation, it cannot be denied that sex and pornographic content is why the fandom faces such scrutiny.

I would like to present the animu fandom to you. By your logic they deserve the same scrutiny as well.

Everyone is hypocritical in some ways.

Some more so than others.

A good point, but I feel like that should apply to other fandoms as well. Fandoms in general are incredibly diverse, filled with good and bad aspects.

But as well you know, fandoms are often criticised and labelled by the bad eggs that exist within them. This is not right to do, but it does happen. Doesn't apply to just furries.

I'm on vacation, so I'll touch this live wire on my tablet.

I liked your comment because I agree that pornographic content is more prevalent than most people in the furry fandom like to admit, by my unscientific eye. I think the option to toggle between NSFW and SFW modes on the main site speaks to that. I feel that the fandom and the site could do a better job of policing proscribed content, for sure, though I'll admit I biased towards keeping things SFW for personal and practical reasons as well. I keep to SFW spaces in the fandom, where I interact with the fandom.

That said, I feel people are definitely entitled NSFW content without shame in the fandom so long as it doesn't cross into immoral and illegal territory including but not limited underage and feral porn. I feel people get hung up on whether the furry fandom has more or less porn than other genre fandoms rather than the more important question of how the fandom can better police the problematic content. I think anime fandom from I've seen should similarly ask how it can better police such content as well. There probably is a whole healthy conversation to be had about to keep such harmful content out of SFW and NSFW space too.

I can't believe you even put feral porn in the same category as cub. A dog dick is a dog dick whether it's on two legs or four. Your high ground is paper thin.

Be that as it may...I think that's just down to some people's perceptions of what's right and wrong.

The rest of the post made a good point and singling out that one bit that's a controversial subject might lead to another dumpster fire. Just advising against opening a massive can of worms, here.

A rich sentiment to see here and now.
