We also share an uncanny close relationship with our ungulate friends the chocobo. As close a peanut butter to jelly.
Soooo you're both tasty on your own, but taste even better when put together on bread?

Of the foxes I have met, they seem to be submissive and pervy. Those traits even describe me.

I just noticed something. Furries like to look like their fursona... or vice versa.

The three artists I have thurally examined, all have a familiar hair and with 1-2  of them the same posture.
I have recently found 2 other furries at my school and they like to draw people in furry costumes, and they are all with their faces.

I myself have created my fursona to be a moral and social image of myself, and what I just noticed in the mirror, I am growing hair to basically match the length and thickness of his.


Is this true, or am I just going crazy?
Next time, I'll collect the money, and you can die!
The perfect blossom is a rare thing. You could spend your life looking for one, and it would not be a wasted life.

Well, I tried to make my fursona as close to me in basically every way, so it's a given that he has the same height/weight/eye color/etc. I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of people do the same.

Some of the rudest jerks I've met in the fandom were dragons, therefore with few exceptions, all dragons must be rude jerks.


...or not. We can joke about it. But really, that's how stereotypes are born.

ehem!

Am I rude, or a jerk? I am insulted!

Hmm... That would depend on one's definition of "submissive." I don't believe I am submissive, rather I tend to be stoic--I will go along with something if the situation calls for it, but I rarely submit to anything. I can only tolerate so much; after a certain line is crossed, all involved parties will know it very quickly.  ;)
:goldhowl:

As for perverted... well, everyone's perverted in their own way.  ;)
Just what exactly is a nerf, and how does one herd them?...

I don't know...  why would someone that's nice carry a "book of grudges"?

:D j/k

Seriously though, it would be absurd for me to conclude anything based on having met a few dragons that were extreme jerks aside from "it is possible for dragons to be extreme jerks". But it's possible to find rude jerks in pretty much any group.

On a more technical note: Making such a conclusion would be flawed for at least a couple of major reasons.  For one, the sample size is -way- too low for it to be of any statistical relevance. And two, it would be confirmation bias since I'd be ignoring all the dragons that I've met that are not rude jerks.

On the looking like your fursona thing, I actually have really long hair, and my fursona's is about an inch or 2, and I have a beard and he doesn't.

I don't look anything like my Fursona, mainly because I'm not made of metal. I don't even think it would be possible to build an accurate Fursuit of him.
You humans need to refine, alter, corral codify and measure things yes? Very well. I shall use your wristwatch to count out ten of your seconds. I suggest you use that time to run. For at the end of it I shall come for you and I will catch you and we shall measure the duration of your death... In screams.
