What do you hate about the furry fandom?

The fact so many of them go out of their way to, with all full intention, promote segregation within a community that is already seen like a bunch of disgusting freaks by the rest of the world. And seeing nothing wrong about it.

Now that I think about it, I don't like how much of the community seems to be afflicted by significant mental illness. It makes it hard to really relate to and trust others who may very well be incapable of self-reliance and healthy social interaction.

People who wear murrsuits in public, around small children.

lots of people fuck in casual clothes, not a problem for anyone.

Part of the reason I'm okay with murrsuits. Besides most virus like HIV don't survive long outside the body even in stains. Also I dare you to shine a black light in the next single hotel room bed you sleep in.

Okay I have mixed feelings on wearing it in public but Internationaly wearing it in public for the sole purpose of haveing kids hug your cum stained plesure suit is beyond fucked
My thinking is;
If you've got a Murrsuit, for the love of the fandom, don't wear it out in public. If you want to fuck in a fursuit, don't do it in one that will receive physical contact with children or normal folks. Because fursuits are fuzzy and cute, hugs and photo-ops are inevitable and because we're basically anonymous in fursuits, one bad apple sullies the opinion of the whole.

I have no problem with Murrsuits, but if we can save face by NOT publicizing that some of us like to have sex in mascot costumes, the fandom would be all the better for it.

@Strangeguy32000 It's not as if this fact requires any advertising? Anybody with half a brain knows this stuff goes on and it's frankly a morally neutral activity, especially compared to some of the vile pornography produced in the fandom, so the fandom's obsession with this subject is perplexing.

Anyway, I think it's appropriate to change the body suit or just treat the suit as a partial if you intend to wear it in a space where people would take offense.

Bottom line, whether we're talking about your street clothes, your underwear, your pajamas, or your fursuit, if you get it dirty, you should wash it. This goes double for if you get bodily fluids on the garment in question.

From an objective standpoint, people are being somewhat irrational when they freak out about a clean and sterilized murrsuit. From an objective standpoint, they're being irrational and a touch hypocritical if they assume that fursuits by design must be disgusting and cum-stained, but barely ever think about what most people's clothes (or even more, most hotel bedsheets) would look like under a blacklight.

In reality, a piece of chocolate that looks like a piece of dog shit is still a piece of chocolate--yet, even if they realize this, most people will be reluctant to eat said chocolate. That's just human nature.

So, from a pragmatic standpoint, if you don't want people to freak out, you should have different bodysuits for street-suiting vs. murrsuiting--and ideally, these bodysuits should look noticeably different from one another--and you shouldn't sell candy bars that look like literal crap.

I will deliver the explosion
I am sick and tired of wangsty "teen" furries, who write long and involved journals about how horrible life is and what "horrors" they've been through (half time these things sound so damn fictional it makes my teeth hurt), and act all "edgy" and shit... And then piss and whine that they have no friends.

I hate the ones who sit there and ragequit when they're not popular. ESPECIALLY if they start doing like one guy I watched who had a cool style and everything- except he started keeping track of every fave he got on his art and if he didn't achieve more than 5 on a piece (he wasn't well known yet) he would take it down from FA and tell us basically that as long as we didn't participate, he wasn't going to provide for us. WTF.

I mean, I get that it's disillusioning at times that people don't spam you with faves, even if you worked hella hard on something. But if you're gonna leave, just fucking leave and shut your whiny damn mouth.

One word. Hugboxers. Every problem is the end of the world. They're complete and utter horrible crap despite having previously illustrated they're not. Every drawing ever produced is the spawn of Satan's Blackened Bunghole. Half the time I don't know if they're legit suffering from problems that make them think this way, or if they're just making it up for attention.

I'm confused, I don't know much about furries, so I see no reason to hate them.
It's just that some know quite a lot about the ins and out about the people who associate themselves as furry. You don't need to worry about it :3 but to some its just an interesting topic to both try to single out and just vent their frustrations about some of the typical bad eggs they find

When I was in high school there were always those furry couples that would drag their partner (or subs as they said) around on leash and collar. And then there was the barking. It made me want to kill myself.

it's a moth! it a dragon! no, it's a avali boi!
now I want to say before I get on my soap box, I don't have many complaints about the fandom at all and I really love being here and all ^.=.^
but one thing that really make me frustrated and annoyed is fursiona bandwagoning.... there are approximately 8.7 million species of animals on earth and all most every single furry in the fandom is a canine with are only 30-40 of the 8.7 million species of animals on earth, not even counting all the mythical creatures there are! I mean come on, fursonas are supposed to represent you. not every other fur in the fandom. and look at this,( Member List - Canine Furries | SoFurry ) 3000+ members..... if that doesn't look like one great huge bandwagon, well I'm not sure. and not only that but the people who do it make everyone real canine or bandwagoner look pretty, overdone.
and yes I'm fully aware this post will do nothing to change anything, I'm simply just rambling on. lol

Hey, that was me!

Kidding. Sounds like a kinky high school that I might have liked, though. Except the barking, maybe. That could get noisy.

Was this out in California, or in London, or something???

But as for my own 'pet peeves': I guess sometimes, I find it can be a bit clique-ish? Or maybe it's just insecurities, and it strikes me that way? I'm not trying to judge, just to understand. So I can see if the collared and collar-tugging couples acted like they were too cool to even talk to you, then, that would annoy me.

This was in Minnesota in a school with less than 1500 kids total. These furries were a lot more like your typical teen werewolf type than anything else. If they found out you were a furry they were always annoying you with that "OMG youre a furry too we can totally be kennel mates ahahah" and all of that really cringey level of it where I wanted nothing to do with these people, but if I told them hey leave me alone I'm a loner they just don't get the hint. I even had one of them beg to be my "mate" for a month to the point where I told him if you don't eff off I'm filing harassment charges.
It ended up getting so bad the school banned collars and tails because they were disrupting classes.
