being a furry

Post by Zero on Wed Jun 18, 2014 6:26 pm

okay so when i figured out i was a furry which was very recently, i had a hard time explaining to a family member about it so i found a short doco on youtube about them which KIND OF covers it. what do you think about furry tolerance? how did your family or friends react to your furry side?
just a little curious.

Usually seems to be the case, sadly.
Glad you set him straight Razz

It doesn't impact my personal life much, since I'm not exactly the most actively furry of people. To be honest with you, I don't see why people make such a huge fuss about it. If it's a lifestyle choice, great! It's nobody's place to say that you're wrong for it. If it's a sexual choice - because let's face it, there are some cases where it is - then it's not anyone's business what you do behind closed doors and you aren't exactly parading about a fetish by existing. Stereotyping is bad, mmkay?

Anyways, on to your latter question - There is an entire encyclopaedia of things about me my immediate family doesn't know. This is one of those things, because I see no reason to bring it up; it's never important.

As for friends, most are aware. And they don't really care; ultimately I'm the same persona either way and nothing's changed. Applying a label to something doesn't change its intrinsic properties, it just adds a label. Everything's already there, it's just figuring out how you want to describe it.

That's my two cents. Take care, 'Red'. :p

honestly, i've been a furry for a while now and like... i've  never actually been clear enough myself about a furry is to my family and really only my mum knows. i say fursuiters instead of furries to my mum because i saw her facebook wall by accident and it had an anti furry post saying that all we furries do is onion eachother in our fursuits which is wrong and if she thought i did that she'd be pretty worried. i hope your family understands man :'/

I haven't told anyone. I've faced prejudice first hand over my political and religious views so I've gotten into the habit of not volunteering information. If it were to come up in conversation and I felt that the person could handle it then I would reveal.

Family?

Eeeeyeah my bro's first thoughts were 'bestiality' or 'fetish' XD

I just love the cute suits and the fun wearing them and becomming a totally different person.

For all those that have seen I LOVE TO STALK RANDOM STRANGERS AND SCARE THEM Very Happy

As for documentaries, there is no set thing. Being a furry means different things to different people. There are no set ideas because everyone really has different ideas.

You even have other types of furries; scalies, otherkin, etc. Technically Bronies are a sub group coz they like talking animals, which still counts as anthropomorphism ^_^
