seriously, i'm wondering how y'all even know that there are, "furry haters," in your schools if you never bring it up. Does it just come up?
I have only once in my entire life happened across someone who even already knew what furries are, and the worst he did was make a silly (though negative) joke that no one else in the room understood. I live in an area where there is supposedly a lot of furries about.
Highschoolers (and children in general) can be viscous. If they don't have something to make fun of you over, they'll make something up. If you wear a collar, or a tail to school, don't be astonished if there's flak over it. That doesn't mean, of course, that it wouldn't be nice if there wasn't.
