People who have and wear so many con badges, that they look like a giant billboard. Or the design of the fursuit is obstructed by so many badges and other trinkets.  :P

All the way back on page 2, cause the rat posted a very smart reply about how all of humanity has its problems, and nothing specific that was mentioned in the pages of this thread I read, is unique to the furry fandom.  Drama, whining, not paying up when going with a group, bragging "mine is better than yours", immaturity among the fans, the explicit sexual art that can be found--nothing here is unique to us.  You hear and see about this stuff everyday.

If I had to pick what I disliked the most about the fandom, I would say how its reputation has been shadowed over by the negative things associated with it, more than what good the community does.  Just throwing it out there, the 18+ art for starters and its almost impossible not to run into it with the most basic of search terms.  All that does is give the impression that everyone is into it, when many don't care for it.  That's a shame.

Like a lot of people, I guess it would be the negative stereotypes, not just the 18+ things, but just the weird ones in general who take this too far. Not sure of examples right now. It is a cool fanbase, but I don't see a reason to shove it in someone's face. It's what makes us look bad.

The abundance of adult material is not helping. I am fine if someone like that kind of thing, I find furries attractive sometimes, but I think it can be a bit out of control. The main problem again is pushing it onto others, which is what the issue is. Unfortunately this makes people see this as the while fandom.

Not everyone is like this, and maybe not even most.
I love the community, I am  just saying a few things could be handled more maturely. Overall it's quite a fun fandom :)

Furry artists who kill off their popular characters only to revive them in later postings. Furry porn, hyper, and some vore. The reasoning for babyfur/diaperfur escapes me, but they don't bother me too much. I consider the fandom to be an escape from the real world and there's already enough "adult" situations there already.

The "Edgy" things that a lot of furs seem to be into, still. Was kind of hoping to get past that eventually.
Used to be more frequent, now significantly less so. No idea what's going on.

Because of the misconception, which is another thing I really hate are the furries who delve in the stereotype, I find it impossible to talk about furries with anyone. Some people don't care or know but most of the people I've talked too who know what a furry is snarl at the mention of furry and I ask them why, they tell me it's because they're "Disgusting" as I should put it.

Sad really, there isn't any empathy when reality has the same problems, or worse.  :'(

Basically the large amount of NSFW, fetish and porn stuff. I really don't like sexual things so that part bothers me. And it's really irritating when I watch an artist I like and then they suddenly start spamming my watch with fetish art . . . like, why? I don't want to see that stuff.

I also cannot stand most of the "tumblr" furries, or the edgelord ones that draw their characters with their guts hanging out. I find that really gross. Furthermore it seems like most of my friends online are into that . . . I don't get it. It's not appealing, it's not cool, it's just disturbing and gross. I don't want to see your character's intestines, no matter how neon or colourful they are, thanks. (On a side note, I don't really care about some blood or whatever though).

One big issue I dislike about furry and try to change  is how  furries  deal with  the younger and older members  outside the demographic. We had  and incident  at anther fur group shunning  and insulting and elderly member. Then I feel general (not   specifically adult  like meting at a bar) furcons  should serve the whole community. I do not by banning under 18 reason about insurance but    lack  of social skill of  20 - 30 somthings  leaders  to deal with those outside the peer group. For  me a  a Christian is  an 18+ 21+ con is usually a red flag to stay away. My only  only experience  with  18+ multi genre  convention is people getting drunk and acting  immoral is they want to. The idea of  adult does not mean acting as a mature  adult.


If I was  running a con my policy is  leaders  will serve the  community, young and old  or get out and if you do not like kids ruining around then I can suggest stay home of find a bar.

People who base their idea on furry on CSI,1000 ways to die,storage wars and don't listen to reason from a actual furry who knows what goes on in the fandom. I have tried telling people that the idea that we have fun and put on those fursuits and do stuff is totally wrong. Like a fursuit head gets up to 100 degrees,you could die if you did any of the stuff depicted in those shows.

I can resume everything I hate about lots of thing, including this fandom with: Humans... haha but being more specific and talking about only this fandom I'd say that the own people:

- The common furry attitude: Acting like an overly friendly being, trying to be cute at every moment, being overly childish. This includes as some has already said, the emotes and the constant or perma-rp at every conversation. 

- Being a stereotype (common bored furry)[involves mindset, specie,likes, dislikes]: selfexplanatory, I think most people already know some of them, like being a fox, wolf, cat, tiger... and then justify that they're the perfect animal for them for being XYZ and because those animals are too (even when they know nothing about the animal their talking about; really, I've seen that lots of times). Being very ignorant and childish about most things, and something they agree, is that dragons(no real animals) are the only acepted reptiles, this also covers the intolerant/speciest mindset they have "If it isn't a common animal, then we don't like it".
This one is mostly seen at young people, and no those who barely starts at the furry fandom; they never do some research about some things they may like and are into, and not even know what furry means. And they always call any videogame character, canon or animal, a furry...
PD: When I started and made my scaliesona, almost every wolf, fox and bunny from 3 different sites, told me I was a bad person, they were scared of me,I was better like a wolf for bein "dominant and rude" but if I liked more scales I could been a dragon instead... (?

- Drama / Fallacy - Ad populum: 2 things I've seen a lot since I started but alway stayed away from them... even when some people tried to involve me.
Most people just don't like to hear/read/know anything that isn't "good" or "aceptale" for them or a certain group their into, in this you see again the stereotyped attitude, specially when someones say something "bad" about a certain theme, person, or justanything related with the fandom; this can be a constructive or destructive critic, a comment, even the "wrong"/ use of an emoticon, or just put a dislike to their comment(post/tread, and then they just explode, cry or scream to everyone and just makes some drama. At those situations is also seen the Ad populum fallacy, wich increases the drama because more people feel insulted because someone doesn't like, support or just follow somethine lots of people do.
Also, this fallacy increases some bad aspects like ignorance, misconception, stereotypes, etc. because as "everybody does that, then I'll do it too so I get accepted" and that's something quite common at younger ages, but still is a problem because they end being an unoriginal cringy person (? and just uses this "argument" as an excuse.

I have more and could explain better, but  I think I already wrote too much

this kinda gets to me too.. so many times iv seen people start calling characters that were not intended to be part of the fandom furry/furry theme things when in reality its just an anthro animal.

The drama, which can be said to anything but i just hate it nonetheless. I been brought up in the middle of flame wars multiple times, and i do not enjoy it. >~< When i have a problem with someone, it's usually resolved unless the person has bad intentions. So at that point there is no use talking to them.

yep the drama gets pretty ridiculous at times... mostly see them flip out when someone comments on something saying that furries are weird/bad and then some furries come by and start commenting trying to defend themselves only making it worse.

people really need to learn how to deal with comment trolls...

When some people treat being a furry like it means you're obligated to do adult things with them.
No, no it doesnt. It most certainly doesnt work like that.

Especially when they look down on notions of asexuality or fidelity, as being some sort of "filthy prude". So, somehow wanting faithful partners or being some type of asexual is a bad thing...?

I also LOATH cheaters and liars too, but thats a problem that transcends furry.

Communications--Losing a furry connection one depended upon to keep posted on local furmeets. There was an FB page for such events in my locale. We had a Spring furmeet at a city park that was well attended and included a cookout. Furries drove in from over 50 miles away and everyone had a great time. I took photos when not suiting and later posted them on the FB page. There was mention of a Summer furmeet, but it never materialized. The individual responsible for running the FB page decided to exit the fandom and shut it down. May have put a serious crimp in area furmeets.

Sounds like what he did was mean and inconsiderate, he should've at least had the courtesy to post a link in there and someone else should've made a new account.

Once, while foxing abound at the big renaissance festival. some dude put me in a headlock and pried my jaw open to show his kids there was nothing scarey about Mr. Fox. Ah, the hazards of going feral.

Two words: the yiffing...

Hate is a strong word, but I tend to agree with Sarcasticninj4.

It's not so much the eroticism itself. There's sex in fantasy art, steampunk, goth, anime - as well as mainstream culture.
And I dig a degree of eroticism in art (e.g. Boris Vallejo), but some parts of the furry fandom have taken this to an almost obsessive attention to all things YIFF.

It makes it damn difficult to gain a foothold as a "clean" writer, and I've seen too many talented furries turn their backs to the fandom and head elsewhere. It's a loss every time.
