So, after giving it some thought I came to the conclusion that it would be a good idea to post a discussion about the appeal of the furry fandom and why it attracts so many people despite it being social suicide in some places. (P.S, please excuse my really formal writing style despite being in a casual form. Just a habit I picked up from college English. I just find it makes it look neater and easier to read. P.P.S, the indentation on this thing is weird.) So anyways, to start us off, the most common thing I've found among furries who stick around for a long time is the acceptance and sense of family. It doesn't matter what walk of life you've come from, where you've been or what you've done, once you're a furry you're family. And I find that to be a beautiful thing! It's sad that it's so rare these days. I for one have changed for the better because of it. It's because of furries that I came to terms with my homosexuality and just recently, my more feminine side. Another thing that drew me in is just how polite most furries are. I've lost count of how many times I hear peoples opinions on furries change after meeting furries simply because of how polite we tend to be (for the most part, there are exceptions as in everything). One such example is an article a friend sent me about some people who got caught in a hotel during a furcon and how they once believed the stigma until they were met with the unusual kindness of the furries there despite the fact these same furries have rarely been treated as nicely as they were by these journalists. Lastly, I think it goes without saying no one and no group is perfect. As we examine what makes us so attractive despite our stigma as a fandom, we should work on ways to make ourselves even more welcoming. Maybe one day we will outlive our stigma. The biggest of which is our stigma for being nothing but perverts with weird fetishes. And believe me, I've met the truth behind this stigma and even bare some of the responsibility. I've let myself go before and probably left some bad influences. However, I have since learned from my mistakes. So make your comments below! Tell us what makes the fandom so appealing to you and how you think that we can do better! I don't expect a radical change from this. My hopes is for a few self improvements that might cause a ripple effect. Mahatma Gandhi once said, "Be the change you wanna see in the world." I do my best to do that, and I think that if we as a fandom truly wanna "clean up" and get rid of our bad rep, we need to follow this rule. So far it seems we're doing a good job though! One thing that should never change, keep being weird because normal is over rated! <3
Right so I was just wondering how people got into the fandom in the first place not a lot else to say so let's get started not that mine is a particularly sensical story so I feel that I was going to wind up here from the start, I've always had a thing for animal motifs and the like; however, the first I'd heard of the fandom was not exactly something I was immediately interested in joining, (I can't remember exactly what it was but I know it was yiffy) but I did get curious about this mess. From there I went and tried to learn more about furries but we all know how the net can be, so, that's how I found out I had a thing for furry smut. I argued with myself for quite some time about actually admitting to myself I was a furry after that... eventually I did and I also found the rest of the things that go on around places like this and decided this was a thing I wanted to get in on properly. so that's my poorly punctuated mess, how about you guys?
It's pretty simple, who do you think are some of the scariest video game villains out there? For me, I'd have to say The Dark Ones from Metro 2033, mainly because even though their Psychic Powers aren't intentional, they're still damn scary to come across @[email protected]
