I'm straight.  Kind of odd, because according to rumors, most male minks are gay.>.>;

To heck with the rumors, eh? '<img'>
Heheh...
Well, I'm watching this poll with interest. The results so far are close to what I figured the way things went with this fandom. Still too few have voted, though.

I know I'm going to get a lot of odd glances by asking this, but....

Since I'm planning on staying a virgin for the rest of my life (and have many reasons to do so), would that make me bisexual or not applicable?

Ummm... In that case, you'd probably just do a null vote and abstain from voting on any of the options.
There is the 'fourth' unwritten option of being 'nonsexual', aka asexual, celibate, and stuff like that.

I agree Benjamin,

This is going alot like I expected it too.. I think the reasion most people think furries are gay is becouse furries tend not to hide it so much. We are more open in alot of things.. like S+M too.. rembering a new furrs reaction to the AC noticeboard last year.  '<img'>

Well just my thoughts

@Chaz_wolf:  You have a valid point.  Most furries are gay, because they are more open about themselves.  I bet that there are a lot more gay humans than is known now, but they hide it more, because of the social society they live in.  Trying to live in that is hard.

Jadnar, I have to agree with you.
DrakonianDanceR, your pont is very well made too.
Human socitiy is like sheep.. they all have to fit into the coman group and anything new they react very badly to.

Becouse furs are more open and less quick to judge / react we get along better with each other. And we can trust each other more.

Jadnar, I got the same reaction from one of my friends when I mention gay sex one time.. but then a week later I walked in on him having sex with one of my other male frends.. he had tried to hide the fact he was gay becouse he thought he was supposed to hide it and act the way he did.

Sad that human socity forces people to act this way.

Another thought, if you are looking for your mate / soulmate etc.. why cut your chances by 50% and discount half or more of the people you meet just becouse of there sex ?

Anyways. enough of my ramblings.

Take care all

In certain furry circles, if you get yourself established into a local furry group and such, it sometimes seems like "being gay" is a peer pressure sort of thing, and if you don't "give in" to that mindset, then some furs won't have anything to do with you. Sure, society of the population at large has an unhealthy attitude, in general, to homosexuality, but there seems to be some similar behavior against straights from the gay community, anyways.
 
Furs preach tolerance all the time, but there are many preachers out there that don't follow their own words. I've seen this sort of thing happen time and time again in certain circles in this fandom, and it's a bit disheartening.
 
Furs aren't immune to the "us and them" attitude to that most will accuse non-furs of possessing. Furs are, after all, human... or at least partially so.

Not everyone can get sexually aroused or fall in love with someone of the same sex, or even the opposite sex for that matter. Society has a lot of impact in how someone leads their lives, but there's also (apparently, or so the scientists say) some biological factors in that sort of decision. Some of us can safely say that we tried "playing for the other team" and it didn't do a thing for us.

Using the scale that the resident liger mentioned, I'm probably a 1 or a 2, so I went with straight.  I have been attracted to other females, but never so much that i felt it worthwhile to attempt to start a relationship.

Isn't it a shame that the only ones that realise what a farce human society is, are the only ones that have to live in it unwillingly.  Here, we see almost strangers openly discussing their sexualities.  The person in this discussion that I have known longest, we have only known each other for a couple of months - yet we openly talk with each other about matters, like this on sexuality, which in human society would not be acceptable.  I have human acquaintences that I've known for years and years - many more times longer than the person here, yet because of the society they conform to, and I am forced to live in, I would never be able to discuss these/those sort of matters with them.

Yes, it is odd to see complete strangers talking openly about this sort of thing, but it is getting more common, along with the number or people who are openly gay/bi, especially in the younger generations, i guess. There are alot more people that i know that are gay/bi than i would have ever imagined. In the last few months i've found out  that almost all of my friends are bi (well, my close friends anyway)... I think I only know two that are 'completly straight', or that claim to be anyway. I believe that society is evolving in many aspects, and soon it wont be seen as a negative thing to be gay/bi. heh, and i agree that many gay people see straight people negativly. I know a few people that say any furry that says they are straight is really a closet homo. anyways i'm just ranting here

I dunno. I've seen plenty of "heterophobic" behavior amongst some furry groups.

I've only been in the community a short time, but I've run into more homosexuals who are openly accepting of hetrosexuals than ones who shun us.  

With as many heterosexuals that bash and torment homosexuals, isn't it naive to expect the whole homosexual community and even the subset that is part of furry to welcome heterosexuals with open arms.

I'm just happy that so many of us get along and care deeply about each other regardless of sexual orientation.  That some can't from either side is sad, but shouldn't take away from high level of acceptance that exists here.

"Yes, it is odd to see complete strangers talking openly about this sort of thing, but it is getting more common, along with the number or people who are openly gay/bi, especially in the younger generations, i guess."

I disagree.  I'm fairly young still (17) and VERY few people around my age are open about their sexuality.  As for your friends saying they're bi, or whatever - I have no reason to doubt it - apart from the fact that in some circles, being bisexual is considered 'trendy'.  Weird humans.  It seems strange that nearly all the time no one wants to 'come out' (revealing the persons true sexuality), but every person in one particular group says they're bisexual.  It's too much to be a coincidence.  I hope this hasn't come across to negatively.

I as well am still very young (16) and, while i'm not saying everyone walks around saying, 'hey, I'm gay!' but it's still better than it was years ago. Lots of people in my dad's generation didn't even know what gay was. And, if you were gay, you wouldn't dare take about it, cause it was very looked down upon. It seems like more people are excepting of it now. and, no it didn't come across to(o) negatively. Also, i'm sure openess about ones sexuality varies from place to place.

I agree,
Being gay or bi is more accepted now in most areas.. (try admitting you are gay in TX ) but there is still areas where it is not.

I think that more people are now open to trying gay / bi relationships becouse of this, and finding out it either works for them or not.. but this is now becouse they tried it and made the choice, where as before they would have been forced into the 'right' way of thinking.

The subject of location does make a difference to how accepted homosexuality is, I guess.  I know that there are at least two countries in Europe that have now recently made gay marriage legal.  So times do change, and I guess that one day it'll be much more widely accepted.  But even in the far future, it will never be fully accepted.  I look at as if it were a racial matter.  Half a century ago, black humans were very unfairly discrimated against by white humans.  Nowadays, this is not widely the case, yet there are still some very racist humans around.  I relate that to how gayness will be in the future.  Where the majority of people accept it, there will always be those that don't.

I agree Drakonian, sadly it will always be that way. Some groups will always regect change.

Also in the future furries will proably get the same acceptance.. almost fully accepted but not totaly.

It won't happen, I am pretty sure of that.  Since when have any vast group of beings (like billions of humans, for example) all agreed, every single one of them, on anything?  See.  Nothing is ever going to be fully accepted, and that is the world we live in.  Anyway, a utopian society would not be as good as it may first sound.

I think we could all learn a thing or two from... southpark, heh heh. Really the episode about tolerence was a good  one in that it showed that you could still tolerate something you didn't except, and it can still piss you off, but of course all people will never be tolerent, and i don't know anyone who is completely tolerent of everything they don't agree with. It's hard to say what's right and wrong in this world sometimes. Though i don't see anything truely wrong with being bi/gay I'm sure some people do. Mostly it's probobly religion. I myself am christian (obviously not the most devot christian in the world) and i can see where the whole 'unatural' thing comes from. Maybe man wasn't meant to sleep with man, but i love my boyfriend and would do anything for him. anyways sorry for the rant.

Job,

I understand where you are coming from. I agree that no-one can really be completely tolerent of everything they don't agree with. But atleast most people don't get violent about it anymore..

I don't understand how christians can say that being gay is 'unatural'. Saying man wasn't meant to sleep with man, as alot of animals in the natural world do it.
But I don't want to start a fight over it. That is there oppion and they are free to hold that oppion.
If any Christian can explain this to me, please do via PM or email, I do want to understand.

But the main point is as long as you love the person/furson you are with, what sex or furry animal they are doesn't matter. does it ?
