I've been pondering this question in my mind for a while and I think it's a possibility. Imagine furry ads on cable TV and on YouTube before the videos played. Imagine going to the mall and finding a clothing store specifically catering to furries. Furry action figures of our popular furry celebrities and even movies that are intentionally designed for furries that played in theaters(actually good ones).

Imagine if we became idolized instead of being shunned, Invited on talkshows without being mocked, and even have our own corporate empire that significantly impacted the economy without selling sex toys.

Ummmm... I feel like that would exacerbate the problems the fandom has by tenfold. And all that commercialization also sounds like a recipe for disaster, what if companies didn't ask permission before making merchandise? It might be appreciated by those who don't think about it like fools but they're your characters, they don't have the right to make toys without your permission.
Screw the mainstream! No normies allowed, lol

Ehh... I mean all furries being liked by people, that'd be nice.

Power? Power is a dark chocolate ice cream that is not to be trifled with too much. Lest we get a furry president who hates china, lol.

If my personal experience is anything to go by, we're all fucked. Would be fun to see CNN try to explain away why some Furry cons have so many ambulances and police present.

I think it would be cool. Then I can pretend I have some knowledge about an abstract hobby and talk nonsense for 15 minutes of fame.

Haha furry ads already exist mate. Haven't you seen the Orangina commercials? Car Fax? And there's tons of furry media that's mainstream. But for a fursuiter to be treated with respect on talk shows and stuff... not going to happen. It's not a "everyone hates furries" thing, it's just fandoms aren't liked by the majority of people, period. They'd be just as rude to anime cosplayers or Trekkies.

We already see furries in comercials and TONS of movies. Anthropomorphic characters weren't invented by furries.

So you gotta define what you mean by furry. Do you mean anthems? Or rather the furry fandom?

If it's the latter, I don't see the reason why that would be awesome. It doesn't change anything except increase the exposure of our problems as a fandom.

It would be interesting if it did become mainstream, but we would still get a lot of issues with protests and misinformation. It might bring in more future-furs but also bring in more bad seeds who just want to watch us burn.

I like to stay positive, so I am choosing mainstream, just for the future-furs. (=

It's an interesting and controversial topic. On one half Our community would blow up and on the Other so would trolls, haters, etc.

Small community has less cancerous people, while bigger one has more. I like a small community more than bigger community.
