I had a classmate showing our professor his anime-styled furry art. We are third year fine art majors.
the role playing EVERYWHERE,eugh. i hate role play even when its where it should be,and especially when its in facebook comments or something and is incredibly sexual
Man. Yeah this and people showing profs their anime work (like non sequential art major profs) was hard, like I wasn't in the community in college but if I was I would have known there's a time and place for furry work and that time is really not Art School unless you're like a senior ILLU major and it happens to work. Like I did anthro giraffes for an assignment, but it didn't scream FURRY bc it worked for the assignment which was stick a giraffe or ostrich in a horizontal frame, but if the assignment is like illustrating a Bukowski poem then furries do not work in that situationOmg, THIS. I had a few people like that at the school I attended. I give a little leeway on the first year, you know the year the professor beats that out of you through repetitive life studies. Ugh.
Unfortunately the efficacy of this would be wholly dependent on people properly tagging their shit.This and similar shet is why we need an option to blacklist stuff on FA :I

What makes me cringe, in addition to most (if not all) of the other stuff listed, is obesity/fatfur fetish. I know a fat guy - I mean FAT, over 300lbs. He's a good friend but it's fucking disgusting and is actually causing him serious health issues like sleep apnea. I simply cannot comprehend how anyone would be attracted to that.
Hm, I am attracted to fat people, as well as average sized. Not all of them have major health issues. Fat fur art is hot too. I have a hard time comprehending how people are attracted to very muscular people. It's the antithesis of sexy to me. Calling fat people disgusting in the furry fandom probably isn't the smartest thing. You may want to talk a look at who's in it.
Perhaps simply "fat" was the wrong term -- hell I'm fat myself. I'm referring more to obese people. The kind that cause vehicles to noticeably lean to one side -- hell I had to stop giving that same friend rides while I was driving a small car, because he'd make it sag so much the wheel would rub against the inner fender. I'm sorry but I simply cannot wrap my mind around fetishizing something as unhealthy as that.
hell murrsuits in general are disgusting and a waste of skills and money just to go screw each other in them.
It's not as though people with a fetish for dressing up as animals have chosen to be that way; if they enjoy themselves their money isn't wasted, is it?
I think that furries are more judge mental of murrsuits than outsiders actually are, likely because they don't want people to assume they're murrsuiters too and think that the only way they can prove they're not is to be scathing.
A fursuit maker was included in a news report in the guardian, in which she bragged that she had only ever made one fursuit adapted for sexual use and that she had charged her client $1000 extra for the installation of a zipper, and still had the nerve to tell her paying customer that she believed they were 'disgusting'. (Ironically, the price hike is a probable explanation for why so few furries ask her for sexually adapted costumes)
It's bizarre that, in our fandom, labeling your customer as disgusting and publicly bragging about ripping them off, is considered virtuous. ._.
