Several of the usernames, threads, and icons I've seen here the past few weeks have made it very high on the list. >_>

I don't know if you can consider BeebleFox as an ex-furry or a hater, but his video explaining his concept of furry is very cancerous.
Also, this is just my opinion but I'm not a fan of fursuits that look like mascots. Cartoony is good, too much I hate.

most fetishes, almost all of them. Everyone has stuff they like, just not big on fetishes. Especially scat and stuff.

Let's see...

People who wear fursuits out in public or all the time outside of conventions. I get it, you probably spent a ton of money making it / buying it, but you're freaking people out by wearing it in public and you're giving furries an even worse rap than they already have.

Oh boy where the fuck to begin on this.

Lotta people in general
Telephone
Most "famous" non artist furries

But the thing that takes the cake is the time I spent hanging out with a couple of local furries. Fuckers made me cringe and smelled like shit. They're the reason I refuse to ever associate in public.

S'funny just got done seeing the opposite. Someone I knew who thought most furries were awful and cons were cringe fests.
He got back from a con saying it was the most fun he's ever had in his life.

He's one lucky bastard then. Local furries here are the kind of people you'd never want to associate with. Almost as bad as those people who loudly proclaim about MLP and shit while having figurines out in public.

Not sure if these have been posted yet because I can't be bothered to sift through 15 pages of cringe at the moment.

The worst cringe I've seen out of this fandom has got to be things that I've heard from this forum. Some diaper fur who rummages through dumpsters to find and wear the diapers that have been thrown out.. not only does it make me cringe hard to know that it happens, but it also makes me sick to my stomach. :1

The second one is some british git that swallowed his friend's pet goldfish whole. Made me cringe worse that the diaper guy and set me on the track to being a vegetarian for three years. Do you know how many cheeseburgers I've missed out on? It's a LOT! D:<


Finally: Here's something that's not exactly from THIS fandom, but it's close enough and cringey as hell.

Time sucks....
I'm not one to really talk about objectively cringeworthy things. But there are some things that do get me creeped out.

I personally cringe hard at really anything involving blood, injury, gore, etcetera. So...
The cheesegrater pic on e621.
Pretty much that ಠ_ಠ

Well to be fair any normal person does so that's normal. Never heard nor seen anything about a cheese grater but I have the high feeling I'd rather not.

For me it's most of the fetishes. I get it, everyone's got a weird thing that gets their motor running, but man... Sometimes I really wish FA had a way to block specific tags.

But by far the absolute worst thing I've seen outside of FA is the one time I was added to a furry Skype group. I'm a lesbian, not into guys at all, so you can imagine how annoying it was to add people I thought were friends only to have them PM me asking for sex or even trying to RP said sex. The funniest and cringiest example being when one guy kept RPing how he was pushing me down and licking my neck and ears and shit. To this day my friends and I mock the "lesbian killing dick".

A lot of furries are just weirdly and obsessively sexual. It's weird, yo.

Hi! Welcome to the Internet! It's for porn!

Seriously, though: it's not just furries. Most fandoms get a sex-obsessed edge to them. It's just more visible here because furries are encouraged to create their own characters instead of using the ones their fandom is based around. Doesn't make it any less annoying, but hey. At least I can make some money drawing porn.

Oh, I'm aware it's not just furries. I've just noticed it a lot more in this fandom than others. Honestly I find most of it funny. My friends and I like to dig through the weird shit and try to out-cringe each other.

It's funny. I'm not even 30 yet, but being part of a community and realizing I've been through a similar phase way back then makes me feel like an old man. :p
