I don't find it disgusting, I find the hypocrites who decry such an activity, yet engage in it themselves, to be disgusting.

It reminds me of those television preachers who condemn sexuality and drugs, only to be found engaging in sexuality in drugs by some happenstance.

Although even I find some fetishes disgusting, I support the freedom of people to engage in whatever fantasy they want, and I reserve my moral outrage for incidents where actual people are harmed.

But I can't be too surprised... not when the major religions continue to thrive and strangle the world with primitive and evil morality. One thing I've noticed as a cultural phenomena, is the fake outrage of overt displays of sexuality by Americans in particular. If you directly discuss it, it is condemned, but if you use wit or guile to covertly discuss it through humor or other mediums, it is highly prized. This I find contemptible and regard it is a remnant of puritanical history.

I really started liking wolves when I found dA, and then kept searching Scene Wolves because I didn't know what scene meant and thought they were cool. I stumbled across some anthromorphic work and really liked it, so I got searched it up and became one with the fandom :3

Some things are better left in the bedroom. Also just because I participate in a similar activity doesn't mean I can't hold an opinion on someone's fetish.

Where do you get this from? Pretty sure if it comes up in regular conversation it's not condemned. Again though, it goes back to that whole some things are better left in the bedroom. Or discuss it amongst people who you know are okay with it. There's things you don't discuss in mixed company because you don't know them and I highly doubt everyone wants to hear about how much you love furry porn. And I'm almost certain this isn't exclusive to the US either. Unless Canada is suddenly on some moral high ground now where nothing is sacred.

Oh god why.
The Porn squad is coming back.
I came to the furry fandom so I can read annoying and useless posts that are in reply to even more annoying posts and post useless posts about how annoying it is.

That, and the fucking awesome complimentary donuts.

I have always been interested in anthropomorphic stuffs (Disney, Star Fox, Sonic, etc). My first run in with the fandom was when I saw a group of fursuiters in downtown Salt Lake City when I was 10. I thought it was cool, but I never thought much more of it. Then a couple years later I was watching CSI re-runs with my dad... I looked it up and thought "oh cool", then I didn't come back for a while. It wasn't until about 2010-2011 that I decided that I was one those freaks :)V) and that I needed a fursona. A few years of watching fursuit videos on YouTube, reading furry fiction and webcomics, and a little porn... I arrive to today having gave nothing at all to the fandom and I'm still just as boring as before.

Ice cream is the only way
I want to say it was a combination Sonic the Hedgehog and Samurai Pizza Cats -I will be really amazed if anyone even remembers that show haha.
Then my dad told me about the furry fandom when I was 15, but had just enough tact to make it sound all cute and innocent. Nooooooope. Sadly I discovered all the nightmare yiff through my own research ;-;
Despite the scary side, I still identified as furry because there's porn of everything in all fandoms you come across and sometimes you just can't escape that shit. Anime as to hentai for example.

I was born in the 80s, grew up in the 90s. Video games back there were all about anthromorphic animals so naturally that's what sparked my interest! I've considered myself a furry for the past 12 years, it's quite difficult to remember how I got into it.

Tom and Jerry was the first thing that got me hooked on anthros, and that branched out to other cartoons and video games with anthros like Star Fox 64. When my brother gave me TES: Oblivion I would play as a Kahjiit a lot. I forgot what exactly led me to the fandom but I think it related to the art or something along those lines.

As for the forums I lurked a lot and decided to make an account fairly recently. I've been hooked on furries for around, my whole life actually. I also watched a lot of children's shows with anthros like (I know I'm going to get crap for this) Blues Clues and Winnie the Pooh.

*puts blindfold on*
 
Well it started 27 years ago when i was 4 when i was watching cartoons like Thundercats, Heathcliff, Robin Hood and more, i had a crush on Cleo and Cheetara to other animal chicks. I had no idea there was such a fanbase until i was 16 when i read in Wizard magazine and others about anthrocons and all that including about the fanbase as i knew i was a furry since. I even always daydremaed about myself as a thundarian (the species from Thundercats) when i was a kid on rescuing Cheetara from Mumm-Ra and other monsters and all that especially fighting alongside the Thundercats. As a teen i started reading Furlough and other comics from Shanda Comics.

I did rented Fritz The Cat when i was 17 as i discovered yiff especially in Omaha The Cat Dancer comics from some of my cit's comic stores. Those are how i discovered i was a furry.

Though i never attended a convention but i do want to especially when i want to put on a Thundercats costume with furry make-up on and pointy ears to match my thundarian fursonality.

How i got into the Fandom you ask? well its quite simple really. if i had to narrow it down to a couple things, they would be thus : Crash Bandicoot, Sonic and Shadow the Hedgehog(s), Ratchet from Ratchet and Clank, and last but not least, Spyro the Dragon. I have always loved Crash. when i came across a 18+ pic of him while browsing one random day, I instantly became a "True" furry XD. i still, to this day, RP as Crash and i love RPing as him. As for Sonic and Shadow, well those two probably have to be my Most Favorite Yaoi/Furry Pairing Ever. I LOVE to RP as Shadow. and any RP i do involving either Sonic or Shadow instantly becomes one of my favorite RP's ever. Now onto Ratchet. i love his games. although i see very little art of him. but the stuff i have been able to find, i cant tell because i wanna keep this PG-13 XD. As for Spryo, Most Loved Dragon Ever! it was because of Spyro that i found My First Boyfriend, Sirath the Dragon. plus DRAGONS ARE COOL! XD. but i am a Tiger to heart and will always will be. More and More each day i find more Feline characteristics in me. so thats how i got into the Furry Fandom. Jake the Tiger Out!

P.S feel free to Private Message me to start a RP involving Crash, Sonic, Shadow, Ratchet, or Spyro. it can be Sexual or non-Sexual ^,.,^

I like a lot of dumb shit and animals so of course I would be interested in something that combines the two.

As a 12-ish year old: "I like to draw." + "People are hard to draw." + "Animals are cool!" + "My online friends are into this 'furry' thing?"

Add a dash of "never went outside" and some friggin' Robin Hood and bam, prime furry material, I guess.

For me it was initially movies like the Robin Hood, but it really started to take off with the Redwall series. I had no idea that the fandom existed until a college friend of mine said he was going to a furry convention and I actually took the time to look up some info.

The sweet loot.

though seriously, this has always sorta been a thing for me. My mom made me a costume of a dalmatian back when I was like...8, and I had a blast wearing that thing. Wore it all the time until she took it away, realizing i was maybe having a bit too much fun. I blame her, lol.

Honestly, I had a pretty shit childhood and attached to the dog more than my folks. So i think a lot of it stems from that. Bit of coping, bit of denial, bit of fun, and getting a kick out of retaining some of childhood delirium. An active imagination kept me going a lot of the time, and now it fuels images and stories- it's a well-stoked fire with a few odd quirks. I've cobbled together a pretty decent existence out of what i've had, fursuits included. I regret nothing.
