I honestly don't really know why
I don't really know any other furs in real life, and those that I do know, I only get along with like 2 (out of five)
I guess its because I never was able to connect with people (sociophobia is horrible) so rather than associate with them, I rather would be represented by an animal.

I'm a furry because lot's of reasons... I'm not just here for the art... it literally just feels natural to me to be a furry... I'll admit, I'm don't go all out "I'm a dragon stuck in a humans body". I know I'm human, but like I said, being a furry is just... second nature... unless first nature counts that is >_<

hell, I love being a furry enough as it is right now... imagine what my first furry convention will be like! =^.^=

edit: also, what arbiter said... I worship the fact that this community is so accepting and nice! if a fandom is what motivates people to be nice, than why do people attack us? (not being a whiney little bitch who always feels attacksed, I just wonder sometimes why there are trolls beyond the reason that we like "yiff")

One does not need to be Therian or Otherkin to be furry. In fact, there are plenty of people from each group that do not consider themselves part of the other.

sry, I don't want people thinking I was making fun of that. I was just saying, I don't engage in those beliefs.

yea, kinda like that one rule... if it exists... there's porn of it xD only in this case. if it exists, there's a fandom of it ^_^

I know you weren't making fun of it. I was just trying to make sure you understood that those beliefs aren't necessary to be a furry.

Rules 34 and 36 of the Internet:

Rule 34: If it exists, there is porn of it. No exceptions.
Rule 36: If it exists, someone has a fetish for it. No exceptions.

It's a fair bit of irony that Rule 36 is directly responsible for Rule 34.

#1 - No
#2 - No
#3 - Yes
#4 - Yes
#5 - Only one
#6 - No
#7 - Yes

BTW I love the ''comic'' in the first posts.

I have always felt strong connections with animals so thats why Ima Furry :). I would love to be a wolfy other than a human xD
 
The communtiy and people in the fandom are some of the sweetest and nicest people around, and I have always loved the animal art even before I heard of the fandom, so I guess I fit in XD And I have always felt I have had a very stong connections with the animal world as far as loving them and understanding their emotions.

I'm here for the art. Yes, there is a fetish component of this... but I'm not here to yiff nor am I here for the porn. To the extent that this is a fetish, I'm much more turned on by clean stuff than I am adult stuff.

And other: I intend to build and/or buy an android dragon once the technology becomes available. And no, a dragon version of a realdoll isn't what I'm after. Intelligence is what matters. I'm much rather converse with a dragon than yiff with one. While I don't object to the concept of doing the wild thing with an android dragon... I'd likely be in my 90s by the time such a thing is possible. Viagra only helps so much... :twisted: That and a large dragon's body would likely be insanely expensive anyway. It'd be much more cost effective to build an android dragon the size of a large cat.

And a side note: I intend to build the android dragon when the technology becomes available... not necessary legal. I expect intelligent machines to face the same sort of knee-jerk bans that human cloning enjoys. Frankly, I don't care. I keep up to speed on the latest in AI technology and I work in the field so a ban on building an intelligent machine would do little to stop me. The only things that could would be a lack of funds and/or of lack of heath (and I guess being dead of old age would qualify...!)

I'm the Pikabunny boy
I have a alter ego, whom I have had for many years that was in a animal/rabbit form in my mind even before I became a furry. I later gave that ego its own form and idenity and he became my fursona...

I am a furry cause I feel accepted when I talk about my inner self around others instead of fearing if someone would kick me down, as has happened to me all my life, when I say I am different.

Man that mabey was to much XD but yeah thats why I am a furry

Will it be able to turn into a monster truck, because that would be so freakin awesome. Seriously, I don't even care how much worse it's inevitable Frankenstein style rampage would be that would still kick so much ass.
