Learning the Fur
« on: February 02, 2013, 06:30:23 am »
Hey there,

This may sound daft but despite considering myself a furry I feel lack knowledge and skill.
E.g. I am not sure what a fursona is (I guessed based on my beliefs and reading)
and I cannot draw.

I would like to learn.  And be willing listen if someone is willing to teach :)

Thanks for the link.
Do you have to be artistic to be a furry?

No, not really. There's no "qualifications" you need to be furry. A person can be furry as much or as little as they want. There's no right or wrong way to be a furry.

Suppose a better question is am I a furry?
can someone disprove I am a furry?
Is it something just about how you think or feel or are there other attributes

To me at least, there is no single definition or "meaning" of what it means to be furry. If you were to ask ten different people what furry meant to them, you'd probably get 12 different answers.  :D Everybody who is in the fandom is going to have a different explanation of what furry means to them. You are a furry only if you want to call yourself one. If you have a interest in animal cartoons, stories, mascot costumes, love animals, etc., then you may be a furry or wish to call yourself a fur. A person doesn't have to be furry to enjoy the furry fandom. Furtopia has had it's share of members who chose not to call themselves furs and who were here because they were curious about the fandom and wanted to learn more.

I see.

So based on your explaination...*coughs*...I...Am...A Furry

Why?
Because I love animals as much as I love people.
Because I love Mystical and mythical creatures.
Because Something in my heart and mind connects to these things

Well.......Yes. Unless of course, you'd rather not call yourself a furry?
