the first thing I heard about this fandom was that it is a pile of sick fucks having sex in animal costumes...

I heard really nothing about it other than someone making comments about it saying he doesn't understand it. So decided to check it out and bam, here I am 2 years later. The thing was I never liked to search negative opinionated things on the internet until I started to grow up and feel "you know, there's a lot I'm missing by following principles of what I should and shouldn't be on or viewing". So I found a little more than furries in those 2 - 3 years.

First thing I heard about furries was that they were a group of homosexual people who all wished to become animals with names such as "Snowball" but in reality they are just everyday people who are more open with their fetishes or sexuality. Or they just like drawing or viewing art relating to anthros

The first thing I heard from a friend who was in this fandom was.. Well, that art. I used to draw animal anthro's before I even knew furries existed.

Well I used to play a game called 'Furcadia' decades ago and got the idea that most Furries were just people with really high sex drives, who just happened to enjoy expressing that through erotic art of anthropomorphic animals haha
I never actually thought about them desiring to do it in their suits till I joined this forum back in March xD
Learned they are much more then that, though, and now I is one! Wish I would have got curious back then, though, cause I've always had the mentality of one ^^'

I once had a very high sex drive. I probably would have signed up then. Maybe.

I went to MomoCon in Atlanta in May with my family. There I saw my first fursuiter furries. I was captivated. I had never seen one before. Never seen any on youtube. I had forgotten about that CSI episode all those years ago. I asked my teenaged kids what character they were and what anime they were from? They were like" Oh jeez dad, those are furries. They both acted like they were cringed. I wasn't cringed, I was in love. So after we hot home that night, I went looking for furries on youtube.(By the way, I am a nivice to the internet. I have only had a smart phone for a year in July.) And one of the first videos I watched was Kiba Wolf's FWA Good Time video. Omg! Hook line and sinker!! I was hooked. My wife was totally confused by my reaction to furries. I had realised in that short of time that I had been a furry all along. My whole life I have had a "thing" for anthro characters. From Thunder cats and disney in the 80s, to Star Fox in the 90s. The one I was really enthralled with was The Lion King! I was a senior in high school when it came out. I saw that movie a hundred times in the theatre. I spent a lot of my money on that. I lived that movie! And here it is, 22 years later, and now I know why I felt like I did back then. And now, I love the fandom. I originally had gotten on G+, but that ended in freaking disaster. My wife almost made me stop. And I would have too, even though I really loved it, because I love her more. But my wife saw how much I loved it, and she allowed me to continue, at a more toned down pace. And then, to my total amazement, she drank the koolaid with me, and fell in love with it too. Am I ranting? We both saw how much people hated the fandom. But I am old enough to know that their hate really stemmed from bs. And I honestly went out of my way to call the haters out. Even changed some of their minds about furries. Yes porn is a part of the fandom. I'm a grown ass man, porn is nothing to me. Who hasn't watched porn? Doesn't bother me at all. Some I may even like. But I noticed right off the bat was that a good percentage if furries are artist in one form or another. And a lot of good, if not great, artist were a part of the fandom. I love the art. And the music vids with furry art I love those the most. I am an old softy, silly , sappy man.

I feel like I've responded to this thread like, three times now.

The first time that I had the term, "furry," it was some southern dude going, "Oh look! Furry porn!" After that, I met this gay guy through Steam that was a furry, and since I grew up in Christian Schools, he pretty much scared the shit outta me with his brightly colored animal people.

Since he also was the second introduction to furries being a sex thing, I was anti-furry for a while. I have no clue how I got here.

I didn't hear anything about the fandom before I had already joined it, which is back in like, 2005 or some shit.

But, what I did hear was shit like "All Furries fuck animals", "All Furries are into zoophilia". One of my reactions were "These cunts talk about not generalizing Muslims yet jump at every fucking opportunity to generalize a whole group based on the actions of a few that they don't like. What a bunch of fucking retarded hypocrites. They should go plant a dildo tree so they can go fuck themselves with it when it grows up."

Another reaction were "This shit's not even true. Statistically it's true, but you don't go saying shit's true based upon something that is STATISTICALLY highly unlikely."

What DOES my username mean...?
i knew literally nothing about it before i came on board. i basically went from 0 to 60 almost instantly, ...right into the adult section. Of course once i joined the fandom and got pretty comfy i learned and realized they were lot of "special" persons in it. Granted, that was both a self-made observation and, honestly, quite true about maaaany fandom on the internet.

I knew about the existence of furries long before I ever knew what they were, so it's hard to say. But the earliest mention of furries I can recall - having then learned what they were - was in Elliott Goes to School, where Elliott is called a furfag for drawing anthros.

I probably saw some random pictures online and didn't really think anything of it. But the first time I remember hearing more about it was from that one unfortunate episode of CSI, sadly.

first place I heard about it was on a Tosh.0 episode...which resulted in my trying to avoid the topic and community, a couple years later,i remembered one of my IRL friends was part of the community, and I figured if he was in it, it couldn't be as bad as that episode made it seem, so I joined these forums that morning. and here I am.

Prior to being a part of the fandom, I would hear all sorts of bad things, like "furries are losers who want to have sex with animals," and other similar things.

And where the hell do people get this idea of furries wanting to screw animals?! Crazy crap! Fursuiters having sex is still two people in costume having sex. I have never looked at an animal and said to myself "Man! I sure would like to hit that deer!" Absurd!
