Because we eat and sleep and poop like everyone else while doing it all with an extra big dose of fun and self-awareness. Ole!
If you call furries awesome, then you're calling humans awesome because furries are humans... and that I cannot agree with... sorry
Furries are a special breed of humans who still have a lot of the species faults, but try to make up for it by having good taste and are just generally cool people. Sometimes. Maybe. Probably.
But we know what we like and despite other people thinking it's weird we do it anyway, because it's fun and not hurting anybody. So we're both free-thinking and considerate.
But we make it look cute at any rate.
