Everyone I have told so far hasn't had a problem with it. I can't say I won't meet someone who will disagree with it though, but this is who I am and that is all that matters. I even have a tail that is in the process of being made by a friend I met at a con.

Yeah, I told my family I was a furry the same time that I told them I was bi, and they more or less disowned me. But now that I think back on it, I'm glad that I told them. It helped me realize that just because you happened to be born to people doesn't mean that you always need to listen to them. Now that they know, I'm happier than I've ever been, even if my family doesn't talk to me. I don't know what the big deal about telling the people you know, but it's a great feeling to not have to hide who you are. All of my friends know, and many of them have offered to come to cons with me and what not.
i've also notices that once i joined the fandom i became happier then ive ever been. so much so that i have adopted a new policy. " i dont care if i die, i just care if up to that point i have been happy". and i EXPECT i will die young, and i accept it. i have ben happy and as long as i am happy then, i feel fine about death. i think this fandom has had the same effect as a religion that someone truly believes in, not pushed on them by family would have. i have never been religious, and probably never will. but if what i feel is the same that religious people feel, i can se the appeal in it.

Ehhh...   Less and less so as time goes on.  I've now met a few furries IRL and such.  I've just... Lost the need both to hide it and the need to tell everyone.

I've actually felt so much different ever since I embraced the furry fandom. Much like the two of you, I've just been happier, like I found what was missing, it's been nothing but good for me. I still follow Christianity to this day but I swear I heard God tell me "It's alright." After that night I told my mom and she thinks it's actually pretty cool, sure my dad didn't say much when he found out but he never says much to begin with. Even when my brother found out and wanted to rip my head off for it, furry is part of who I am now and it's something no one's gonna tear away from me.

I was finally able to tell my mom that I was a furry. It was not easy and I wasn't expecting "Do what you want and what makes you happy". I'm still rather shocked... x_x

Birthday dinner, right, sittin round the table, eaten a burrito, and guess what subject came up.  You guessed it.  So apparently, my parents saw a group of fursuiters piled into a car and, i don't really remember what about, and they start talkin bout it, then this happens:

"Oh is ain't like those furry guys is it?"

"Yeah, like those people who dress up as animals and stuff"

"No, it's like a thing, it's more than that."

"Huh."

That was about it; then they ended up talking about somthin else.  I never commented, once we got home, my parents never said nothin, and that was pretty much it.  I wasn't nervous, i didn't think i'd have to talk about it, even though my parents know i'm on the forums, and i didn't.

Those of you thinkin that you'll die if you gotta admit somthin, don't freak; there's not much to admit, and chances are, you won't have to. 
(Note, never take my word as fact for anything, i'm unreliable and my info ain't always top-notch.)

I've  let some of my close friends know, but luckily, they don't yet realize what a furry is. They just sorta stare at me confused.

I nearly had a heart attack when someone (you know who you are.  :goldpissed: ) told me to tell my brother what being a furry is all about. I'm happy keeping it from my family as I'm likely to be kicked out of the house...

     I'm definitely in the furry closet. No, I don't want to tell any1. Why? You know it yourself, I hate being unaccepted. Like seriously! As my parents are Christians, I know that they'll disapprove of my "behavior" and most likely kick me out of the house.

This is what it feels like to be at home, with my parents not knowing I'm a furry:

*awkwardly watches movie next to my mom, or dad*

If my parents knew:

Dad yells, "THE IS UNACCEPTABLE! YOU HAVE BETRAYED YOUR FAMILY!"
I mean, seriously dad? This is what you do to your son? (Yes, he has a bad temper, as I got an A- on a quiz, he completely raged)
Now my left pinky finger and thumb are numb. So that's what it feels like to have no thumb and pinky...

Furry-lined closets?
Oh hey I say! That does sound pretty cosy!

Actually, I have heard someone slip furry instead of fairy which made me suspicious, though I think how I must have gone all red probably made "them" suspicious of me.
(I do believe in furries, I do I do I do!)

My parents would have no shock to realise I like something cartoony and a lot of furry art is just that, so yeah...
I am not using the "furry" keyword, though, as I really don't like labels unless it's the topic and I can be all like, "Ooh, I'm a furry, too!"

Plus I'm new still to all this fluffiness and as random as my interests can go, I think I best not identify with something I am barely just new to! :D

P.S. Nice suit there, Kobuk!
I have no idea what I am doing.
