What is the most cringeworthy thing you saw in/about the fandom?

Biggest cringe came as a surprise. Was working on a school project with someone and we were using his laptop. He told me to go to a site, it was in his bookmarks.

I have a bad habit of typing in the address bar for autocomplete and never use bookmarks. It also just so happened that the website began with the letter "F"

Well, long story short, first result brought up a babyfur picture with stink lines coming out of a bulging diaper.

I did not know he was a furry (He never found out I was either). The cringe scale went from 0 to 10 in seconds and it derailed our project.

Hey in the end whatever floats peoples boats is fine by me,it's whatever you know?
I'm not putting down the person,I'm just not a fan of the concept.
Not everything that gets one persons knickers in a twist,appeals to the next person in the same way.
I'm just really nit-picky when it comes to costumes/suits and all of that because I see something that's taken so much time/effort to make as something far more precious then something to use in that manner or how people take their suits in the water or dirty them up for just shits and giggles.
But in the end that's just my opinion,I grew up and still am in a situation where I have little money and what I can get is something that turns out to be very important to me and I end up setting it up on this pedestal in a sense and doing whatever I can to protect it as far as protection goes for such things.
As for that maker who charged an outlandish fee and still put her client down,now that's just wrong and immoral as well as bad for their business and what people see them as.

The "waste of money" thing is kind of exactly the reaction people say when I tell people I like drawing furry work and they tell me I'm wasting my talent on it.

I know it's just your opinion, but it's really kinda rude sry. I wouldn't want to have a murrsuit, if I'm being honest that's mostly bc it's just not hot for me, but that doesn't mean it's a waste of time or talent for the maker or the person paying for it.

That's not nightmare fuel. That's just a Shambler with an extra face.


Nightmare fuel would be trying to face down a Shambler with just the Axe.

Then there's Foxnz. He has over 3,000 pics and has put effort into literally NONE OF THEM.

I'm normally not a very judgmental person, but considering the amount of art, its subject and his age (35), it makes me genuinely concerned.

I could find something much worse, but I'm really found of these forums. And I'd be heart broken if I where to get banned for posting the horrors of google >.=.<.

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 just not sexy to me. Calling fat people disgusting in the furry fandom probably isn't the smartest thing. You may want to take a look at who's in it.

As a fat fur, I have to admit that I have made a few life support fat fur (yes, that's a thing, it's weird I know) works as experimental stuff. It's healthy to tinker around with fetishes as long as nobody is actually harmed, but the appeal's begun to wear off and slob stuff has been getting too common. So I was thinking of doing fat fur art where it's all about cleanliness and appealing to those who are not normally into lipophilia.

Some people just don't have the proper mindset for art. It's more than just knowing where to put lines, I feel like you need to be able to visualize the subject in your mind and sort of extrapolate the proper views and such.

Like, at the risk of sounding like a pompous jackass, I have a very analytical mind and can easily focus on mechanical and engineering concepts. The operating principles of an internal combustion engine are pretty basic for me and I always get caught up trying to figure out how that machine in the corner over there is actually doing what it's doing. To other people? It's goddamn space magic and people always seem to just throw their hands up in defeat when faced with problems that appear basic to me.

It made for a lonely childhood.

I'm kind of the same way with artwork and certain philosophies as opposed to mechanics.

I'll say this, most of the shit here listed plus, this one video I found where a guy transforms into a tiger and keeps enlarging. All the while putting shit into his feet paws, not to mention that the entire video is animated in shitty early CGI that makes Roblox look like any new generation COD game.

It is supposed to be an animated show that can be played on the Ps1 or Ps2. It is produced by the German animation company known as Dingo Pictures. They created a shit ton of horrible rip offs that are bad enough to give Chris Chan a run for his money.

Thanks dude. Yeah that was truly epic. Sounds like they just grabbed some kids off the street and had them record the voices with no preparation. Unreal
