Will I be picked on for being a fur?

To answer the thread question: You may be picked on by many, no matter how you present yourself, however if you present yourself well, many who would pick on you either won't or will probably eventually stop. Try to make yourself hard to mess with. Personally, my friends found out I was a furry and they just make jokes about it every now and then. Some people on the internet are like "Yiff in hell, furfag" (A classic line) whenever they notice one is a furry, including me, but others are cool with it. Present yourself well, don't make a big deal about it, and you may find it easier to get by.

Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?
You've got to be kidding me. I've been further even more decided to use even go need to do look more as anyone can. Can you really be far even as decided half as much to use go wish for that? My guess is that when one really been far even as decided once to use even go want, it is then that he has really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like. It's just common sense.

Just like you'll be picked on for liking Star Trek
And Dr Who
and My Little Pony
and comics
and LARPing
I like all of those in some way or another! I thought I didn't like Star Trek, but then I remembered the new movies. So yayifications! I like them all!

Oh... going advanced didn't help me. I failed to quote :( check out Battlechili1 up there ^

This is the only creed to follow when not wishing to attract attention. Thanks for saying it!

People used to call me a furry before I actually knew the real definition of it. I used to wear a tail in honesty but just as a weird fashion thing..
I got no abuse really cept some indirect harsh tweet from someone I didn't know at university, but when I stopped wearing that tail my friends ripped into me then for not having it, they preferred me with it o_O (my social circle is odd.)

I never made a big deal out of it, but to be honest I don't really tell anyone in person much about myself these days unless asked.

I've learnt in life if you make a big deal about yourself in any form, people are gonna rip shit into you in the hopes of shutting you up.

I've been picked on for things far more out of my control than being interested in the furry fandom. Bullying happens for a whole myriad of reasons without even beginning to get into interests and hobbies; appearance, how you dress, how you speak, how often you answer a question... That and for no reason at all can be why you could get picked on.

Totally!
Where I live, talking politely, music taste, appearance and race are easy things to be insulted for.
Fortunately for me I've witnessed all these insults and awkward situations. I've been thrown up against a bus stop and nearly attacked by a drunk because he hated the colour of my eyes.

There's no way you can justify bullying or ill will of any sort, it's not the victim or recipient's place to justify it as it's no their problem, moreso the cretin who causes the grief.

Likely not, as long as you point out the differences between the furverts and the furries very fucking clearly.

Yes, of course, you will be picked on for being a Furry. But just remember, you are actually living your life and your enemies only have innuendos and name-calling to suppress you. Don't let them win.

Holy necro.

Yes, if you are school aged you will be picked on. Even a fully grown adult will probably get at least friendly ribbing from friends who know. Your options are to either keep it to yourself (since honestly, no one cares anyway), or let them know and expect it.

Actually yes, MAN UP, just don't have to accept being picked on, they are not your friends and you shouldn't give a shit about them, punch em in the face, hit em with a baseball bat, stab em with a pen, DO SOMETHING, nobody is going to do it for you. Yes you will get in trouble, but not for much and this is not only for school but life, give yourself value. Good luck.

I have never been bullied for it but when you're older and surrounded by more mature peers, being a furry isn't the worst possible thing in the world. Then again I didn't go around announcing it like some ass-spaz.

Being a furry isn't the worst possible thing at any age really. Middle and high schoolers are little shits but unless you deliberately make yourself a target they'll just ignore you.

You will get picked on for a lot of things.

It's mostly because everyone is a condescending asshole.
