What would your reaction be if real Furries (not fantasies, but flesh and blood) suddenly appeared in the world? what would happen in your vision?

Plumbers would make bank. Seriously. Our drains are not meant to handle that much hair. And there'd probably be live action porn on pornhub within 2 hours of the discovery.

As for me, I'm not really sure I'd freakout that much. Not because I'm a furry, but because at this point it would just roll into 2020 pretty seamlessly. Might be a bit excited for something to talk about that isn't politics, covid, or more politics.

Slippery When Wet
Humans would take sides. There would be protests for and against allowing the "furries" equality in our society.

Lots of fear-mongering, that these "animals" would eat children or inbreed with humans or whatever.

But pet supply companies would make a fortune selling shampoo, brushes, and flea/tick treatments.

DICE HAT!!
Humans get killed off or die out.
Cue Beastars.

They’d have to do a lot of stuff mind you, especially with the pipes and such.


Part of me would hope it’d be possible to turn into one, but yknow if that’s not the case, I’m going to keep my gun close, as that was our main advantage we had.

Ah, simple! That would be a great time indeed! My only question for them is "How can one become an otter? You tell me this, and my life will be complete as a rudderbutt."

I'm not sure how tall you are, hopefully at least average. All you really need to do is build solid, but trim muscle mass. Think the Michael Phelps build...

Oh, you mean the animal.

Hah! Yep, I meant the animal! Now curiosity will take me to whoever this....Michael Phelps is. And hah, I don't have muscle. I'm as skinny as a bone! Dances around*

Sounds good to me. Disruptive, but good.

I like to think they'd be somewhat smarter and more ethical than the average human. More animalistic than us, yet also more civilized. Many would be talented, shining in the worlds of entertainment and culture. Although they could easily rip out your spine if they wanted to, most would prefer to be kind and gentle. Focused on living good lives and having fun. Embracing humanity as fellow sapient beings, rather than competitors. Unless you're perceived as a threat, you won't have much to worry about.

Humans who *are* perceived as a legitimate threat by the real furries, however, might be subjected to a thorough taming program. The taming process would render problematic people, such as unruly world leaders and violent criminals, harmless to furs and humans alike. As for humans who simply dislike or feel uneasy around animal-people, the real furries would be tolerant. Occasionally trying to win them over with kindness and charm, but otherwise leaving them alone.

Yes, furry girlfriends and boyfriends would be a thing. Some would be even cuter than they are in furry art. Humans and furries would want to think carefully before agreeing to date each other, but it would happen.


Maybe this skews a little (okay, a lot) toward fantasy, but if there are talking animal people then we're already in the realm of fantasy.

Bold of you to assume it hasn’t happened already. It’s only a matter of time before dolphins evolve opposable thumbs and conquer the land! :p

Okay, let’s get serious now!
I wouldn’t view them as any better or worse than humans. That’s my view on sapience in general.
Society would be permanently altered. We’d take a long, long time to adjust to it. Eventually, it’d become the norm, if and only if we didn’t start a war with the animals and end up destroying life on Earth for good.

Here’s some interesting stuff I thought about to do with this scenario:
  • Certain animals would be a lot better at specific jobs than humans are, meaning that different sectors of work would be populated with different species.
  • Sports would be one of the more controversial aspects. A cheetah would beat any human in the 100m, but the 10km? No freakin’ way.
  • How would anthro pigs, chickens, cows, etc. feel about us eating their feral equivalents? That is sure to piss a LOT of them off. If we’re being honest, though, pigs will even eat bacon if you give it to them. You never know for sure...

The Order arriving would be bad, considering many of my Order characters are fascists with superpowers, Grief and Scylla would most likely cause a response from NATO and would invade the west and east coast of the USA, considering lasers and plasma weaponry are developed by my villains in this time it would be way above what we have. The good news is that unlike other stories, my villains treat humans relatively well when they lose, but some villains would be douches. There would be a big market for pets and species that are "less evolved" than them, meaning cats, foxes, and dogs would probably be sold out as the Order keeps them as kindred pets. The US government would be easily crushed under Grief if he put an offensive right into Washington DC, and Atlanta would fall and be used as a staging ground in the USA. Grief would eventually ask for an unconditional surrender provided the planet would permit itself to disarmament with nuclear weapons. Meanwhile Scylla would be the worst and would go on a path of destruction and looting, whereas Amanda would create her own Italian villa and would take over Rome.

For humans, it could be worse considering outright subjugation is not the main objective, but it would be a nightmare regardless. Ironically, Grief who is the main leader would be our best shot for peace, with us decommissioning nuclear plants and disarming the world, he would simply acquire more resources and go back to his own world, but Scylla would want whatever she wants and Amanda would want slaves, (primary military prisoners of war.)

Many of us would date, maybe sleep together, and possibly inter-marry (later on).... and then hold a huge banquet afterwards, for all our friends and in-laws.

Non-humans don't have human rights and knowing how slow international politics are, it could take years to fix that even if everyone was agreeing in principle. Before that killing or enslaving anthros would be perfectly legal. How exactly events would play out would depend on many things. If there are very few anthros, they might all get killed before the policymakers would make up their minds. If there are enough of them, they could maybe get together with their human supporters and defend themselves by force. People's perception of anthros would also be affected by all kinds of irrelevant things, like how cute they look or how badly they smell.
