Oh man.
So many things about furries annoy me... (YES. Including myself.)

- "Furry pride":
No. Just...no. You like animal-people and art of them, often porn of them and perhaps like dressing in an animal costume depending on your preference.
I completely fail to see just WHAT there is about being a furry that requires you to post "Furry pride!!!!" everywhere and scribble it all over t-shirts.

And no - the fact you draw art or make fursuits etc. of animal people doesn't count. THEN you are proud of your creation - not the fact it fits into "furry".

- "Fursecution":
Not the media part. That's normal, media ALWAYS seeks out the violent or sexual aspects of anything to exploit it for the purpose of entertainment. (Seriously, you think it's actually interesting to anyone to watch a video of a bunch of people who all decide to display their love of animals walk about at a convention? No. Not really. They only like seeing people walk about in animal suits because it's "weird".)
What I DO loathe, is the furries who will scream "fursection!!" whenever anyone happens to disagree with them or say they don't like furries. Get over it. Not everyone does.

- "Furry porn":
...Please. I know it's perfectly natural for people to look at porn. It's only a little odd that people like porn of animal people/anthros but why...for the love of all things holy WHY must SO many furries decide it's perfectly fine to announce their sexual fetishes to the world??
Then draw porn of said fetish and often get offended if someone isn't into the same fetish... and god forbid that they should find it wrong or disgusting.
All people, furry or not, have a fetish but most don't feel the need to tell everyone and I'm not even going to start on those who try to make it out like it's normal...
Keep the private stuff exactly that - private.

- "Making everything "fur - whatever" ":
Come on. Why do furries change words to sound more furry?
Like "Fursection" - no. It's "persecution". Always has been and always will be and changing it to "fursection" makes no difference to the meaning, of which most seem to not understand at all and claim anyone disagreeing is "fursecuting" them.
The same goes for "yiff". Ok, it's a new word to describe the furry porn and it makes the name instantly recognizable AS furry porn so no one is that likely to stumble onto a load of stuff they don't want to see BUT we have to make things difficult and it also means "good" now aswell.. demonstrated when someone says "yiffy" about something. Why confuse the issue?


...I'll shut up now.

Hamburger time.
About foxes and wolves being unoriginal, I used to never like wolves. But then at the age of 12 I experienced the first stages of totemism/therianthropy: dreams, behavior, etc. Over the years, my disposition toward wolves did a complete 180.

When it came to therians, furs, and otherkin, I came to FAF to understand the line dividing them. For me, and probably others, it was mainly trial and error.

You should add people that talk shit about some stereotype that virtually doesn't exist.

Who do any of you people know that actually get upset and do talk about all that "fursecution" crap. Who do any of you know that go to the fullest extent to express their pride for being a furry?

There may be people like that, but it's looking more and more like those people are more along the lines of a countable amount of individuals who have acted so out of fashion that it got people's attention. It's great that you hate them, most people do, but crying about them just because you need material is just as good as not saying anything at all.

In priorities ranging from low/medium/high, let's see:

-Whining over petty things
-Commission whores
-Pet/slave hoarders
-Unoriginal fursonas (Pokemon, Digimon, Legendz, Sonic, Koopa)
-Furries with massive egos who think the world revolves around them
-Furries who cannot take honest, valid criticsm (often paired with the above)

-Begging for money so X can live with their mate Y
-The media being stereotypical
-Those who can't spell or use proper grammar
-Mary Sues and those with fursonas are a mish-mash of 20 different species

-Ravers
-Liars, cheaters, fraudsters and thieves
-Those who have the nerve to post overly public photos of themselves that they know they will get a lot of criticism/flak/trolling/etc (IE babyfurs posting photos of themselves looking all cute, especially if they have AB related clothing or other things related to infantalism)
-Babyfurs who use babytalk excessively
-Posting a million SL screens onto one's FA account
-Furries who make or made a specific group of people in the fandom look bad
-Mediocre to bad hygiene
-Stereotyping species (IE Foxes are cum dumpsters, dragons/snakes/lizards love vore, etc)
-Drama
-Polygamy
-Disturbing fetishes (hard vore, scat, zoophilia)
-Furries mindlessly following memes
-Furries mindlessly following the avatar meme bandwagon (krystal can't enjoy her sandwich, OMG A GIFT!, etc)

-Those that know local furmeets are in one's area but don't go to any because they're too lame to socialize
-Mindlessly defending a "popular" artist even if the person posting about the artist in question is right/true
-Those firmly embraced in the chantard culture
-The abundance of fox and wolf fursonas

I vote that the world's greatest, and most organized rant ever! And it is so to. Especially the announcing your fetishes part.

Nothing annoys me about the fandom really. The only thing that slightly does but it's everywhere is SNITCHES. I hate them :3

This is just disrespect to artists, I suck at art yet even I know this. Artists take pride in their work an don't want to waste time on loser art suckers.

Also the fact that there's waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too many foxes/wolves/what ever

go become a damn fish or something.

Also I hate all the fucking porn, pron,porn,porn, is all most of you ever think about. Go pick up a damn book and read a story.
 
-Those that know local furmeets are in one's area but don't go to any because they're too lame to socialize

There are plenty of furfags out there you are better off not meeting, I would think you'd be grateful if they are courteous enough not to inflict themselves on you :V .

The thing that irks me about the fandom is that some furs are whiners. Yes of couse we all have sometime to whine about, but its just those folks who have to post everything on the net every time something goes wrong or not their way or something. The holier-than-thou furs. (You already know what and who they are). And as for poster who said "They know of a local furmeet but are too lame to socialize" there is some vaildy in that but, however, if the furmeet they going to doesn't have public transportation and they need a car to get out there then that's where they have a problem.

You are right on that, I tried getting one (EraDragon) to come back to local meets but he refused to because of one or two bad experiences of someone that may have hit on him. He prefers smaller-knit friends to communicate with but what contridicts this is that he goes to big cons. Way to hypocrisize yourself, Era.

Another one I met personally but he doesn't want to come to the local furmeets, being just like EraDragon. I didn't bother this time after trying with the candy cane colored dragon above.

Goddamn fucking introverted dimwits.

At this point, I would say that fursuits are off the line even if they seem socially acceptable in the fandom. It ain't a problem to me, just seems well...strange.

Don't got much to pick about, but those commission whiners can certainly be annoying. Too many "Oh my God Starfox!" people as well. Do a barrel roll is all I see in that series.

I've currently been doing some history research of anthropomorphic art from polynesian and oceanic cultures. It blow's away much modern day anthro art I've seen. It seems that anthropomorphic art used to serve communicative and functional purposes (tell a story, consisted of complexed ideal and symbolism, was very personal) Today much anthro art work just seems to say "here's my character isn't he cool" I never believed art was supposed to look more pretty than being felt personally.

Although I can say there are some artists who have a particular drawing appearance that 's really intriguing. But as far as design goes I could care less what a character just looks like because it serves me no purpose. I'm much more intrigued by the background, POV, symbolic usage.

What bothers me the most is the people who constantly whine about the stuff in the poll options, pretending they only happen in the furry fandom, then whine some more when people disagree with them, and then label that disagreement "crying fursecution".



Most of the poll options are everywhere as well.
I mean, if you want to see some real persecution complexes, look at fundamentalist Christians.

Which is why it says "fur" secution...

Finally voted.

I will have to say one thing that does rather bother me, just a bit is the people who get addicted to furry pron. It's an attitude I see some of them carry where they think their shit don't stink, and are like the pot calling the kettle black.

I mean seriously furries. It makes you look retarded when you yourself are into porn or fetish stuff, and you point fingers at others who are into it to as being worse, or you point fingers at people who don't actually look at the stuff or like it and baw that they are an even worse problem.

It's all like WTF? Logic, use it now!

Also I'm rather over you damn closet furs or furries in general who don't actually engage in the fandom beyond the internet. If you don't engage in IRL fur fandom stuff that shut up when topics or issues surrounding those who do pop up.

Seconed.
I remember someone posting a thread about him here and it was locked for "slander".

The sad thing is he makes art whores look bad. We don't need a whole bunch of anti-art whore sentiments just because of this one kid.

I tend to call people "kids" regardless of their age. In any case that guy is like a kid the way he was acting. Enough said.
