Are there any fellow furries on this site? If so, come on in and tell what you be. Don't be ashamed, be proud of who you are. Besides were all friends here. Oh and if your curious on what a furry is just ask me. And please if you visit this, don't bash it. If you don't like it, now is a good time to get out.

lmao.

if you are being serious, what is the appeal of furries? is it the cuteness factor? the anonymous factor? the big creepy blank stares?

don't those huge costumes get in the way....?

O.o feeling a bit self righteous there?

being a d!ck would be more like bashing furries without engaging the person about their viewpoints. being curious about someones interests is not being a d!ck. asking questions leads to understanding...

Replace "furry" with "homosexual", then swap out the words so they fit.

You are basically asking someone to justify their preference. Try the same with a guy who is attracted to "ugly" women.

A little nekomimi and so forth is one thing but smooth skin is better skin for the most part.
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.

Now as for everyone else. Your opinions are your own and i welcome them. But i have to say that not all furries are the same. Just the simple statement of saying that "furries are creepy" itself is being stereotypical. I am most certianly not creepy, you can ask any of my friends, if you want.

The appeal of furries is the sheer attraction to an anthropomorphic version of an animal, or fantasy based creature. Not in a creepy way at all. The cuteness factor does play a small part in this as well. Anonymous factor? No not as much. As for the ceepy blank stares, yes they are a bit unnerving. Now for the "Don't the huge costumes get in the way?" Yes sometimes they can. They aren't called costumes they are named fursuits. And i what you mainly ask of is a fursuiter. I am not a fursuiter, mainly because i don't want to. Does that answer you questions?

Hmm, personal, I can appreciate some anthropanized art and stuff, but furries CAN get creepy, kinda like bronies.

Liking the art-style, show or whatever is good, but some of these people seem to have borderline obsession.

Try to specify your assumptions if you would please. Your comment seems a bit vague for obsession.

Obsession, as in, for me personally, dressing up as the characters.

Here I'll give an example.

I'm a big Halo nerd. Know a TON of stuff about the Halo Universe. Does that mean I'll go to big Halo get togethers? If I had time, sure. Will I dress up as Masterchief or Arbiter? No.

And some of the furry art sorta bothers me.....the less appropriation art so to speak.

Yes some of the art is a bit vulgar so to speak. -ahem- But for the obsession of dressing up as their "fursona" it is far from an obsession. It relates to cutting loose in a way. Just being free and having fun. My buddy lives somewhere in London and owns a fursuit, but has never worn it more than once.

Yeah, I see where your coming from.

I mean, I'm not saying just by wearing a suit, that your automatically obsessed, I'm just saying there is a line between just liking the genre, and being obsessed.

There isn't much that people don't do out of obsession. There would be little if any progress in terms of philosophy and science if not for obsession.

Everyone channels their obsessions in different ways.
