I just refound this XD I would love a shirt of this some day. I'm terrified some of this will happen at Furry Fiesta when I go. Especially being tackle glomped by a guy twice my weight. I mean, I'm pretty tiny, but I also would hate for them to hurt my baby. I know I'll wear a very very long spiked belt.
I fukken saved the page, though, so aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaall the comments he/we made are intact and ready to be extracted for lulz. We just need to find somebody ambitious enough to write the ED article.
Ha ha yeah... there are people who like pictures and games with human-like animals... then there are the freakish furries that want it all sexual that make you go WTF!!? I have a lot of friends in the previous category, and we all cringe at the "furry community" sometimes, so all your "points" are right on! HAHA.
"Deluded", "Naive", "inexperienced", and "likely fourteen years old". Well, the last one's more than one word, but it still fits. He's still in the "MY subculture is better than ALL subcultures!" mentality. Much like goths who go around saying they're more "unique" than anyone else, 'cos gee, they got themselves a packaged rebellion from their parents.
So very very true ... (I find this to be far more accurate than the message it is a response to).
This is why, even as an Anthro Enthusiast, I have steered away from associating myself as a "Furry".
... there is what many CLAIM it is about ... and there is the mind-bending, disturbing TRUTH.
I adore all of the fellow Anthro and Animal enthusiasts like myself who have managed to distance themselves and avoid most or all of the things listed above, and just be fans and fun people. ( ... it's the statistical majority that is DEFINED by the above list that scare me)
BRAVO for having the guts to be HONEST!
[[BTW : You mis-spelled "philosOphical" in the left column]]
Havent used the term in refrence to myself, either! If anyone asks, I just call 'em "fantasy art conventions". X3
I dont know about majority or minority ammounts, but it is sad enough to realize that alot of this and other wild crap takes place on such a regular basis. But you've got the right mentality to approach how you interact with others, not only in cons but in life as well: associating with the best and most uplifting people. :3
Thanks for both the spellcheck and the good wrods, Vuldari! Greatly appreciated and I'm glad I could impress!
What's even worse is when you're tackle-glomped by complete strangers and you actually have a sense of "Hey I don't know you. Only my friends get to do that!" and they look at you as if you're some sort of freak of nature who has declared a mortal sin! O.O!
