Why do trolls hate us ?

Chomby

I'll poke your butt
Trolls hate us because they ain't us.

 
Here's some ways you can find out why they hate you.
Reason 1. Go to FA and scroll around until you see 5 neon green fox-dog hybrids inflating themselves while gorging themselves on never-ending sandwiches while drooling. (It takes like 5 seconds with the normal filter)
Reason 2. Browse these forums and watch shitstorm and after shitstorm about whatever pronoun wasn't being used, whatever hurtful thing was said, whatever person has decided to leave because of whatever argument, etc etc. All of this from the most inclusive people on the internet.
Reason 3. Christfurs. Nazifurs. I'm gonna use my better judgment and just not say anything here.
Reason 4. PORN. Lots of it. E V E R Y W H E R E.
Reason 5. People sticking their noses up at each other and fighting each other about how no one in the fandom should consume porn, the shallowness of sexualizing their characters, etc etc.

One of the reasons is because there are people who revive a god damn 13 year old thread, holy moly.

Apart from that - the two most common topics with furries appear to be sexuality and politics. When you have a group of people who introduce themselves first with their sexual preference as if it's a personality, and then with their extremist political views as if they are also a personality, it's not difficult to imagine why outsiders would hate the fandom.

(And because many of the valid points made here)

But really, we shouldn't worry about them, as there's a high a chance they've contracted the OwOvirus once they came in contact with furries or the fandom and will most likely become one in the future.

The same reasons *I* often don't like the furry fandom. :)

Tbf, the fandom kinda' makes itself a target.

• All of the yiff.
• The fandom is often politically charged even in places where such topics aren't warranted. This isn't to say it doesn't have a place, but I will veer away from a political topic if I feel that it's too acidic for my tastes.
• Horror stories at furry conventions make itself a laughing stock in online communities.
• Too much drama, witch hunting, and overall hatefulness on social media sites such as Twitter give the fandom a reputation for being aggressive, and therefore prone to being messed with. ("Poking the bear," so to speak.)

It's pretty obvious.

The fandom makes itself into an easy target. Thin-skinned, sex and porn everywhere, rainbow coloured unicorn barf "fursonas" as if it's an attempt at being the most "special" as if it's a bloody competitition on being the most special but also the most shallow, sexuality thrown on their arm as if a personality rather than an intrinsic characteristic, pronouns shoved in people's faces.. The list is long over why this fandom is so ripe and easy to target. Perhaps look around, look inside yourself and ask yourself, "why does this stereotype exist"?

Ever heard the term "as wide as an ocean, but as deep as a puddle"?

The more important question and that no one is asking is, why care?

By the forces of pure serendipity and happenstance, not caring is the best way to avoid being a target for harassment. Funny how that works.
You'd think furries would be able to laugh at their inherent weirdness a little more rather than get defensive over it and make a scene.

Exactly, and that's why I'm a burger with OwO eyes.

We have more to fear from those within the fandom then those outside of it.

There's a large supply of cringe and scandals; the stupidest takes on politics maybe ever; lets' be honest : a fair amount of just raw stupid (on both sides); and scapegoating (many of these trolls turn out to be into lolicon; I don't find it far-fetched to imagine there's some insecurity going on)

The reason so many people who troll furries have anime pfp's is because the majority of furry trolls congregate on 4chan, which I believe started out as an anime based forum. It's become a cultural thing almost I guess.

I've noticed that a lot of people who are singled out as targets for trolling are minors, or have autistic spectral diagnoses/social anxiety.
So I'm reluctant to say that trolling happens because people who get trolled invite or deserve it- and there's not really a straight forward solution.

A lot of trolls probably have their own deep personal problems as well- we kinda forget that they're real people who've made the active decision that they want to spend their youth indoors sending acidic messages to other people's children.
