Rhinos don't have hoofs, and neither do camels or hippos. However, all of these are considered ungulates. Technically speaking, ungulate =/= hoofs. Generally speaking however, this is the case.

Oh, I see.

I liek rhinos. One of my favortie animals, actually.

SHAVE ALL FUR! BALDIES FTW!!!
Because my mood varies, I voted on every option.

A lot of the furry fandom I've seen are... more than a little creepy.

"Cub" art is probably the only thing that disturbs me about the fandom.

"Terrible fetishes". That would've been the option.

~Thinks about it~

Yeah that could've worked... damn... =/



But then again... terrible fetishes aren't limited to the furry fandom either so... ~shrugs~

Not rarely I'm weirded out, creeped out or even revolted by something, but few things truly disturb or worry me. Irreverent mentioned Cub art, that's one of those things. I avoid it like the plague.

I am occasionally annoyed ('bothered') by the sheer amount of 'furry pr0n'. I don't mind it, but why so much? :p

I hate most everything on this list. Fursuits being an exception. I find them fun. But I would never have sex in one.

Ew.

~Furry adolescents (actually, most adolescents in general).

~Furry porn. This is a big one. There's nothing wrong with erotica and porn (seeing how the porn industry is not going away any time soon) because in smaller and moderate amounts you can ignore it, but like what Doubler said, its the huge fucking amount of it that is so bothersome, and with all this porn, its far harder to avoid.

~Furry words. I can deal with "yiff" and "murr," even though the words are still annoying. Its when you start tacking on "fur" to every damn word that it starts to get really stupid.

~The Sonic, Pokemon, StarFox etc obsessions. Nothing wrong with really liking a game or show, but in a lot of aspects its gone way too far.

~The last option that I'd rather not type out for fear of getting a headache. The fandom is full of art appreciators, which I think is dandy, but that doesn't make the artists your personal creative expression whores. If an artist is willing and offers, fine. If you demand it of them and they keep saying no because they have better things to do/too busy/just don't want to, then let it go.

Just so you guys know, I'm making a hit list of everyone who hates therians

I don't dislike therians as a whole, I only dislike the "holier than thou, I'm better than you" therians. I've met way too much of them.

Let's see...
Someone who's all like "FUCK YOU I'M A DRAGON".
Therians are more like "FUCK YOU I OCCASIONALLY FEEL LIKE A DRAGON BUT AM 100% HUMAN"
Ok, that's silly. I guess, while therians and otherwhatsheirname don't really "bother" me per se, I find their ideas dumb and the attitude of most of them highly annoying.

The most bothersome and hated aspect of the furries to me? "Fursecution". The word and the idea are both stupid. If I ever read one more furry comparing himself to the gays or the jews or something like that I may just lose it.


Oh, and foxes. I mean, what the hell's up with that, seriously.

Yes, because nontherians really understand amirite.

That being said I fucking hate therianthropy and most of the people in it. That doesn't stop me from being what I am though.

Hmm, should have voted that one too. Maybe I'm being mild because I'm glad we're not talking about 'the furdom' yet :mad: :p
Seriously, no need to make 'fur' out of anything that starts with an 'f' or features a /û/ sound.

I think the thing that bugs me most is how some people get fixated on this narrow definition of what "furry" is, so you got yiff-loving furs telling fursuiters that they're not real furs while the fursuiters tell the yiff-lovers they're not real furs and then other groups who like neither yiff nor fursuits think they are the true definition of furry, and so on.

We're ALL furries/scalies - deal with it! Our brains are all broken in some strange (yet wonderful) way to end up liking what we do for whever reason.

Honourable mention though to "u DrAw GoOd WiLl U dRaW mE NaO? pLz K tHx." - get that for writing all the time. >_<

To be honest the thing I dislike most about the fandom is the lack of open criticism and lack of individuals willing to put their foot down and say "No!" and stick to it. I don't think that fits anywhere in the poll.

It's sort of like, the very things that need to be dragged to the surface and evicerated for the good of the fandom are simply swept under the carpet as if that is ever a solution to anything. This fandom to a point has become too open, and that door either needs to be shut, or moderation needs to start happening to prevent vermin from sneaking in and further destorying the fandom from within.

With that I'll keep my mouth shut. I don't feel like opening to big cans of worms today.

I pretty much put down everything, 'cause I'm way too easily annoyed, 'cause I change my mind all the God damned time, and because at least a small percentage of any of those categories piss me the fuck off.

Though I feel like a total hypocrite for saying the 'furry adolescents'- I'm 17, most of my friends are about my age, and I've been in some form of furry fandom or another since I was maybe 11.
But yeah, the emo/obnoxious/"lololol im so random"/whatever else teen furries are more than a bit of a pain.

And the dumbasses with the 'fursecution' stuff? Grow a pair. Seriously.

No, you're right. I whole-heartedly agree that the fandom should be open, but that should not apply truly to ALL people. It's because of this openness that it attracts all sorts of sexual vagrants and predators.

A line needs to be drawn somewhere. If it's not, then the fandom will ultimately collapse internally. Maybe not in the immediate future, but if things don't change a bit then the only ones remaining in the fandom could perhaps just be those that aren't sane.

I'm not trying to rabble-rouse either, I'm merely offering my opinion.

It's nice to see someone agrees.

Well, there are so many merits to being open minded. I enjoy having an open mind in that I don't reject things just because they are strange or new or different to me. I might not like something but I'm not going to outright condemn it unless there is a legitimate reason.

The thing is when I became a furrie I had a really bad experience that could have stopped me from ever being a furry. Also if the media had caught wind of it, that one experience could have forever tarred the image of all local furs in my area which is getting increasingly more fur friendly.

To make a long story short I recognized something wrong with a person who had joined a school group of furs. I brought up what I thought were legitimate worries "

I was told, "hey, don't judge!"....and later on guess what? That guy? I learned he got kicked out of his home for molesting his sister, but his mother did not have the heart to report him. He also turned a good friend of mine against me and all her other friends, isolated her, then raped her.

Sexual predators....that is just one form of vermin that you will find more and more of in the fandom as it's door opens even wider, and the tolerance level becomes even more absurd.

I agree...a line should be drawn somewhere. Unfortunately all to often, furries are too easily butt-hurt and too unwilling to face pressing issues that affect their fandom. I'm not trying to rabble rouse or cause trouble but this too, is my opinion.
