Seriously I see nothing wrong with wearing a tail in public, It depends a lot on where you go or do in it, but aside from a few comments from older people or jokes from kids people really don't care what you do. We are furries and this is all apart of our culture so why not embrace it and be proud. As a bunny I only have a small tail but I have massssssive ears which draw a lot more attention to me that my friends with tails ^^
People weren't entirely weirded out when I came to school with a tail, though; I occasionally dress up in all sorts of weird shit, for the lulz.
Case in point; I once came in a full World War I American soldier uniform, gas mask and everything.
Hey David, I wore that reaper outfit to Wal Mart once. Scared the shit out of a few people.
Those must have been some damn silly people.
Right on! Military furs = Pownage!ive worn full suits in public (cons and just to walk down the street for fun) the regular wolf one was cool people loved it. but my werewolf one people ran from. i wonder why. it looked like i was out of the movie underworld. those spring feet work as good reverse joints and you can run pretty fast. as for just tails and ears yes. me and my friends will do it. eh who cares what people think. if your having fun and ignoring them then just fun is left. be you and who cares what strangers think. like ive said im in the military and people i work with think its cool. eh the important thing is to just be happy. no matter what you do someone will make fun of you for it or find something wrong with it.
