Again I agree with you Trpdwarf. My worst fear is that one day there will be a serious murder, rape, kidnapping, etc. and when it's found out that the person is a self-declared "furry", all the shit will hit the fan.

To a smaller extent, the video game and music industry were impacted by events like the Columbine shooting. I only fear that it may take an event of large magnitude like that for any change to happen internally within the fandom...for better or worse.

Tried to click only one or two things. Couldn't. Had to click them all. Couldn't help myself.
 
lol maybe you should make Ediskrad an entire option.

EDIT- or the fact that he is in good business with commissions.

Furry words, simply because I couldn't find "Fursecution Complex" in the options.
 
well, you can look him up when FA is back on.


to be honest, when i ask myself, "why do i associate myself with this." and the answer is "because i have an 'affinity' to it", I wonder if that's a good enough answer. it makes me feel very strange to/with other people.

i have, you know. deleted my whole stash of pron before.

on the flipside, is this a matter of conforming? why is there this thing that some people gravitate to, but others are fucking weirded out by? i don't get it. i kind of hate the way that works.

EDIT- fact of the matter is, when i am in a vulnerable mood, it bothers me. when i'm feeling confident, it doesn't.

Why are therians and otherkin in the same pick?

Seriously, I fucking hate otherkin, but I'm a therian.

^ Seconded.

People with a fursecution complex and the introverts that decide that accepting everyone and not judging people is a good thing, the fetishes, the people who use the fandom as a fetish dump.

The list goes on.

the only thing I don't like are the people who think typing or verbally going "Meow" or "Moo" or make/type some sort of animal sound without provocation. A friend of mine just cannot stop saying "meow" atleast once every five minutes to remind us how much of a furry she is.

What do I hate? Prettymuch the closed minded intolerant types that take an irrational hatred to another group while ignoring the hypocrasy of being a member of a group that is literally the internet's punching bag.
That and those with a fursecution complex... so, people dont like furries, get over it.

Thats OK, we hate you too :p

I tried finding the definition of "otherkin" and found nothing. Can someone enlighten me?

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"
You see, you're the reason otherkin hate furries so much, so much irrational hatred for a group you clearly do not understand.
Here are a few names for you, you might recognise:
Athus, Narse, Rhainor.. and I can think of a bunch of others that are on FA, all otherkin. And we dont fit into your stereotype.

I chose the last option. If I took requests, I'd say so on my FA page or signature.

Also, the 12 people who chose foxes make me sad. )=

You know why real therians tend to hate Otherkin? It's due to this pretentious little idea they (the otherkin came up with) to take an existing spirituality, steal it's name, bastardize it, and throw it under their umbrella.

Just thought I'd point it out.

I'd have to agree half with Shenzi. I don't hate Otherkin. I despise part of their numbers with a passion.

I tend to let that cross my mind that one day it will happen. I cannot let it worry me too much because it is out of my power to get people to see things they way I see them based on personal experience (EDIT that, my computer is major glitching up right now for some reason, either that or it's my browser).

The thing is with the Video Game and Music Industry the fault usually rebounds quickly enough away from either and hits or focus the real cause. That is because there is enough of a history that people mobilize pretty quickly(now at least) by word negating inane claims of video-games or music being the cause of the what ever.

But I don't know if the same would really hold true with a similar situation, at let us say a fur-con. Part of me says "I hope it never happens" and the other part says "That's probably a pipe dream."

The porn, foxes (forgot to vote that >.<), character obsessions, furry words, and the improper and insane spelling. The other ones: I either don't care, or actually think they are positive points.

Whats wrong with foxes anyways?
Nothing wrong with them, really. It's just that they're way, way overdone as fursonas, so...
Seeing fox after fox after fix after fox just gets pretty boring after a while.

There are plenty of great creatures out there that hardly get a mention, and I'm sure anybody could find a more interesting one that would probably fit themselves better.

I shall summarize my response with "I don't give a shit".

My annoyances of the furry fandom...

1) Fetish Yiff. Ok. We get it. You like (insert fetish). You don't have to wave it in our faces. There is nothing wrond with yiff, but yiff and some wonky fetish is wrong.

2) Furries BAAWWWing that other furries aren't really furries because the don't draw, go to conventions, fursuit, etc.

3) Drama furries. Enough said about that.

4) Unoriginal furries. This includes all the Sonic furries out there.

Furry pr0n more than anything else, especially since I have no interest in it and it sticks out to me far more than the nonsexual art.
