But in your case, it seems like you've made it about as blatantly obvious without flatly saying it. You've even linked him to a furcon website.
I'm going to guess that in this case, he knows already (or is at least suspicious).
To say the least, he probably forgot. Because way back when, I sent him that link, which was probably sometime in april-june maybe(he still has the link. He let me go through his messages, and he never deletes them, so you can imagine what fun I had going through a year and a half's worth of text messages
), and he still had the link, so I honestly don't know whether he felt like checking it.
i told my best friend I'm a furry in robotics club at the same time as a brony did who was on the same team ( the club is divided into teams of 2-4). i had told him before but vaguely so he didn't remember so this is the first he finally really " knew". he was surprised and i was surprised he didn't know considering id shown him this forum, 2 gryphon, and he had seen my ipod background ( same as avatar). and now robotics is full of funny furry/brony/gay jokes ( the brony acts very gay but is not). which i look forward to. it brings even more variety to the jokes and fun in the club ( it was just dirty jokes but now it is dirty/furry, etc and a mix of them). now we are a loud group ( in the club but not elsewhere) so now the entire club of around 20 people know i am one. they don't care so no negative effect. and recently another friend found out as well. now in both cases they knew the false definition. i simply explained that it was wrong. showed an example and all's good. and now despite not being a furry my friend wants a " Bryon Bison" picture. he thinks that the concept if it is really cool, despite not being one, and hat having furry pics doent make you one. he jokingly said that my ipod was full of furry porn so i gave him my ipod ( he knows the code) then he and the brony proceeded to go through the furry pics i have on it inspecting each pic for a "porniness" to it. they didnt finish but it only helped my case ( there was none).
so all in all only good has come of it in my experience. if you know them well, id say go for it.
Man, robotics is the place to be
. One our teams mentors last build season, he sorta came out as a brony. But other friends of mine, sometimes go through my pictures(I'm very selective of what I save pictures of, you never know who will decide to go through them or when <.<). But my background is my current avatar, which I have a tendency of changing somewhat frequently, so I always change my phone background when I change my avatar.
So I would say your doing good so far just let little bits out at a time and don't go "OMG! Furries are sooooo cooool!!" I'm sure you wouldn't do that though
If I did that, I'd probably lose my sanity instantly
, but thanks for the advice
all my usernames are GrayWolf448 and most have the same profile picture. still find it funny how our names are just off by one digit ^^
and what is wrong with using Google? it's clean as long as you don't click images . Google is actually how i found the fandom... when i first searched it up found the wiki article read it then i clicked on images and then.... you know the rest. but the wiki article is pretty good at explaining what a furry is.
The wiki article is decent at explaining it, but when I was going through messages from the day I had told him about the fandom, the conversation was exactly as quoted
me: ...Have you ever heard the term furry before?
a few minutes later
him: Nope, ill just google search it later
me: Don't google search it, trust me. If you want to know what a furry is, go to this website anthrocon.org
I said it like ten times or somethin, I don't know if he clicked the link. I kinda wanted him to but idk.
Oh, sorry for the big wall of text
