The constant roleplaying by some members of the fandom. And this is coming from a veteran seven year Moonguard player in WoW, and officer of an RP guild!

I mean seriously, you don't need cute little elaborate emotes at the end of every sentence, you don't need to *glomp* or *huggles* people constantly, if someone is trying to have a normal conversation with you then you don't need to try be all cutsey and type out your every hypothetical action, just talk to them like a normal person. You don't need to shove your RPs down the throats of everyone nearby and get all pouty in your emotes when they don't respond to your *pouncehugs*.

I use smiles a lot especially this one, ^_^, because it's just so easy for someone to misunderstand how you mean to say something, for example;

That's stupid!

as opposed to;

That's stupid! ^_^

It comes off as more lighthearted, but I do get what you mean, but if I say *Bearhugs* it's not just doing it for doing its sake, it's more of a normal greeting or show of friendship.

Nah, see, that's a normal emote used to clarify things, I'm talking about the ones like (-。-)y-゜゜゜, (=^・^=), and (*▽`*) where they have no clarifying function in text other than to be cute and show off how good the person can copy and past things from the internet.

There's a difference between doing something occasionally to say hi or whatever to people you know and constantly narrating your every movement. It's the super excessive roleplaying that bugs me, namely because I've encountered people that just won't quit, even when I've asked them if we can just talk, and then had pouty/grumpy emotes shoved in my face.

What I have to say isn't going to be nice. I'm telling it how it is, straight from the heart. I'm not going to sugarcoat it.

If you're so damn afraid of wearing a tail, whining about how to come out of the closet, etc., etc., then maybe the furry fandom isn't for you. Maybe some people just need to "get out" of the fandom and stop acting like a whiny, crybaby, emo drama llama.  >:( Do everybody a favor and get a backbone so to speak, ok?

And.........

People have so much trouble picking a name, or a fursona, or choosing their fursona colors, etc. that you have to write a thread asking for help?  :o *facepalms* Being furry isn't rocket science for Christ's sake. If you're stressing this much over deciding what name to have or what fursona to have, then you're making the issue much bigger than it needs to be. Do everybody a favor and calm down!  :goldpissed:

How often I seem to neglect posting here, that's what I hate the most, I love it here, and I just never post often enough, I also don't like it that some people join the fandom and instantly start to NSFW RP, its not all about sex, but that's what some people use if for >:(

That's another thing. Being a furry is a hobby or just a general interest a lot of the times! You like human-ish animals! It's not that big of a deal!

Do you let your family/friends know every intimate detail of every hobby you have? No, because it's not that important. Being a furry isn't going to ostracize you from your peers, and if it would, then who the heck are you hanging out with that would let something as minor as a hobby or interest drastically change how they'd treat you!?

I've been to a furrycon and I can say this from first hand experience. Nobody in this fandom really thinks they are animals! I mean seriously! Every time I walked into a bathroom there was still water in every toilet!

 :D

As always, furry porn. A friend picked out a few rat themed comic books for me to check out at that convention. Every other page was either consensual or rape. There's no real value or story line to that. If you want my business give me something worth reading. Porn should be part of a story. Not the ONLY thing you have to offer.
It's been said that rats can gain access to your home by climbing up threw your toilet. I prefer to use the front door.

i don't really hate this but i find is pretty stupid and annoying. i don't like it when people start asking about what should their fursona's name, colors, species, ect should be... your fursona is yours not any one else. it's your fictional character, you create it.

also for the need to tell my parents thingy.... i just wanted to tell them now so i don't have to tell them when they see my fursuit in the future. also still would have had to tell them some time since when i ask the the book/tablet my mom would ask to see my drawing and ya.... it's have to tell them when they see the drawing. also it's not a big deal, only a big deal if you make it one.

Yep ^.^ I definitely agree with this one.

Edit: My views have changed. I really really like the 18+ stuff. (I was totally not forced by a certain fox to say this)

well they worked up for drawing skill so they should be able to do what ever they want with it.... also depends on what you mean by 18+ (don't like it when blood/partial nudity is considered 18+)

My fave artist makes tons of 18+ stuff, (Which I'm not interested in) But she also makes a ton of normal stuff too including one of the best furry graphic novels I've ever seen (Purely PG). Just because people make 18+ stuff doesn't necessarily mean it's all they do, plus it's the way that many make a lot of their money.

Whenever something has a stuffed animal, a toy. "It must be furry"
Or a flash animation with anthropomorphic animals.. "it must be furry movie"
Or a picture of a fox "It must be furry"

No.

Don't get me started on furry lingo.. "Pawsome!".

Forgive me for saying this but I hate furs who are so big-headed that they say something like, "My fursuit is better than yours", for example. How childish can they get? Yes, my suit is really good but I'd never rub it into anybody's face (!).

I am so glad I'm not the only one that gets annoyed by these things! Aside from "fursona", I loathe most of the lingo.

Hey I say pawsome every now and again, nothing wrong with it when used in moderation. x_x

Hate is a strong word, but I do dislike all the the bad rep, and the whole "My parents will kill me when I tell them i'm furry because they don't understand!" Thing, if you know that they won't get it, then don't tell them, it's an interest and a hobby ;)

I think with coming out as a furry really has to deal with over thinking it. It's people afraid of being judged incorrectly, at least that's what I think.

that is not only in the fandom.... i hear kids at school saying "oh i got this game and you don't" then another kid says "well i have this game" it's so childish i don't run around rubbing my xbox one, games, and other gaming devices (computers/DS's/PSPs/PS) in every one's face.

but then again when i saw what i have it sounds like i am. i have too many things....
