Put it this way if it exists there's a porn version of it! Every fandom will have a bad side it's just a fact and we have to live with that.

The fact that so many furs disparage things other furs enjoy, especially when it comes to kinks, fetishes, etc. It's like "I have these couple kinks and they're cool BUT YOU'RE DISGUSTING FOR LIKING THAT"

Can't we all just get along?

Realy good artists waisted on18+ crap
Yep ^.^ I definitely agree with this one.

Also agreed, that and I don't care for the 18+ adult artwork/furry porn. I feel if we did away with that part of the fandom, people would be more welcoming of furries/more open minded to be one.

Not a fan here either, but i've come to terms with the fact that adult artwork has a place and time (and audience.)  If you don't like it, just ignore it as best you can.

I don't care for much of the 18+ stuff(i steer way faraway from it) too it's just kinda meh to me :P. Like you said Tren that if we didn't have any of the 18+ stuff, people would think differently of us.

First impressions are lasting impressions the stereotypes mostly spawn from very early fur cons, that combined with our ability to deal with media as a whole since then. Cause the furry fandom seems to love to squirm at media attention, which makes the media say "hey they squirm lets poke them some more :DDDD"

That in combination with common media tactics pretty much anyone interviewed by the media ends up looking like a total idiot. *sighs*

People are idiots. They single out furry fandom and saddle it with the stigma that all furries are into animal sex yet they fail to grasp the simple fact that ALL fandom's have porn. You name it there's dirty artwork and fan fiction of it somewhere on the internet. Transformers porn exists. Yes, someone, somewhere managed to find a way to make robots, who I might add would reproduce entirely differently from organics, have sex. They create porn for characters for whom having sex would be a foreign and probably squicky concept. Every fandom has porn. To single out one for doing what every single other fandom does is mind bogglingly stupid.

More so they did do it with the other fandoms, they just didn't freak out like the furry fandom did.

yes all fandoms have porn. It's the sheer amount and importance it has in this fandom. MLP. Star Trek and the rest all have it. They have a small amount of it to a large fan base. Furry is a relatively small fandom with a huge amount of porn. From an outsider perspective? When most of furry comics are porn. Most of furry literature is porn. Most of furry art is porn. What are they supposed to believe? Then there's the videos. I've heard it said that youtube is unkind to furrys. That's not the truth. Youtube only displays the videos furrys upload. i've watched convention videos that show fursuiters in extremely inappropriate behavior within eye shot of small kids. Full contact groping. I've searched for these videos but have not been able to relocate them. These actions taken were not center frame. They were off to the left within the intended video. going in and out of the frame. My guess is the person taking the shots wasn't aware of these actions. There were two videos that had the same group of furries in them. We don't get a bad wrap for no reason. It's not a false accusation when it's so prevalent. The facts look bad for all of us.
It's been said that rats can gain access to your home by climbing up threw your toilet. I prefer to use the front door.

yep that gets pretty annoying. if they dont like those things they can avoid them, but instead they are kinda hostile about it existing.

They're hostile because it sheds a bad light on the rest of us. I don't care what kind of fetishes a person has. That's their business. Just keep it behind closed doors. Because these people refuse to stop shouting to the world how much they like to hump their Care Bears or dress up in fursuits and have sex or post drawings of the backside of wolves with the anus lovingly rendered with great detail all furries have been saddled with the idea that we're all sex freaks. It effects all of us. Tolerance is one thing but when their antics are the cause of anyone who is into anthro animals being labeled sexual deviants it's no wonder there's so much hostility towards the porn side of the fandom.

As an artist I fail to see much hostility to the NSFW side of the fandom by members of the community, in fact it's pretty lucrative. Granted yes there are clean art groups and such, however for the most part people don't lash out at a random artist because they draw NSFW art. They either ignore it or ask for more lol which is honestly the way it should be.

I personally don't care for babyfurs and generally tend to avoid them when possible, however I have my own "oddities" so I agree to disagree and leave it at that.

yep... fnd it kinda odd with the whole diaper thing. doesnt effect me so i dont mind that much.

well from what iv seen they do tend to keep it to them selves (devoted sights for that type of stuff, and labeled NSFW on other art sights) i have never really seen them spreading the stuff all over the place. the reason for the bad rep is because people actually look for the NSFW content because they think furries are weird, and they want to find something "bad" about the fandom just to cause trouble/get attention. i dont see why they are to blame for the bad rep when haters are actively looking for them just to say all furs are like that.

It's not nearly as bad now as it used to be. But the haters would never have known about the NSFW stuff if people had always kept it to themselves. A fire can't start without a spark. The NSFW folks seem to have gotten wiser in recent years but the damage has already been done.

I see both points of view. But People are allowed to do their own thing, whether it makes us look bad or not. As long as we know we're not like that (well only if you don't like it) then what's the problem? Them again I'm so used to being judged for my actions.

Artwork and fetishes aside I dislike those who take the games and RP too serious then pick on the
beginner or those who may have a disability. After all it's supposed to be for fun. I realise some put a
lot of time and effort in to what they like. But they shouldn't treat those who don't play well or just
for fun like dopes or idiots. If they want serious play, then make it clear to begin with.

You bring up a good point Old Rabbit. I cannot stand it when people are excluded from events because they're new or whatever.

Thankfully though, furries tend to be very welcoming to new people, even in-person and at cons (though you still need to be brave as the new person and make an effort).

this is basically how i feel. I don't like it, but it's not like i can stop it. I also think if it wasn't there, more people would just laugh with us and take a picture with someone in a suit. I also dont like it much cause i only have one person at my school is also furry, to my knowledge, and when ever i try to talk to her about her or show her art, she almost always make some sexual comment about it and it annoys me to no end...
