Will I be picked on for being a fur?

Having a Spirit Animal, does not really mean that a person is trying to either steal culture aspects from someone else, making fun of specific cultures OR just having one because "It'za cool-yo!". Most people I met and told me they had a "Spirit Animal", they had one mostly due to their respect towards that species OR the qualities they portrait.
Calling someone "Crazy", "insane", whatever because of this is ... just plain stupid.

You obviously missed the qualification that came with that assertion :roll:

If someone REALLY thinks they are a hyena-taur trapped in a hy00man's body, they are plenty fucked.

If it's a spiritual thing, for respect for the animal or whatever then yeah -- I can see that.

That's quite similar to how I feel, anyway.

^Oh... "That" aspect? Well.. is there anyone like that IRL? I've never met someone, not even on the forums and several communities I go to :| I guess there might be. There are "weird" people with "weird" tastes everywhere. In that case, then yes, it's reasonable to say they're not able to put their brains to fully fuctioning.

How is respect and admiration for an animal spiritual? There are plenty animals that I love deeply and intensely but I realize there's nothing 'spiritual' about it.

I can't go for any of this spiritual bologne.

That was just an example.

I think I meant to wright " -or- for a respect for the animal... "

Anyway, you can read the Starblade article for what I meant by batshit insane ;3

There was, but he got stabbed :V

Seriously though -- people like that really do exist.
I know there are people that like/say/think/wtv for everything in this whole damn world, but seriously...

That article not biased at all. I mean, just the source is something we should all respect :V
(now seriously... the guy was mentally ill, it seems. DOSAJHGzophrenya is some serious shit...)

We get to learn some new stuff every day :| thank you for enlightening me on this Ricky :Y

No one said he deserved :| (at least here on FAF).

World dragon spawns only spawn once in a blue moon. It was amazing he lasted that long before a guild came and cleared him.

Oh gawd. I'm going to hell for actually laughing at that. WoW desensitizes us! :p

This is why furs get picked on; they have a way of presenting themselves as insipid and ignorant.

Yes you will be picked on for being a furry.

Just like you'll be picked on for liking Star Trek
And Dr Who
and My Little Pony
and comics
and LARPing

In my experience, most people don't even know what furries are. In my case, sometimes my friends might mention it or something if I bring something up semi related, or if I talk about something they've never heard of before they usually instantly try to connect it to furries.

Long story short, no, you won't, and if you are, well that's stupid.

This was my face when I saw that I liked every single one of these except MLP.
