Probably how I've encountered furries who assumed that just because we were furries we'd be sexually open, or at least open to ERP, and then they take it badly that neither we nor our pack-family is.... Even worse when they try to ERP without even asking if its a thing we'd do. Ugh!

I hate how some people just refuse to learn or even comprehend that being furry is not just a fetish.

Well, it can be hard not to believe when there's so much evidence to the contrary available if you end up looking in the wrong places.

Take it from me, the guy who wishes with what's left of his tattered soul that he hadn't looked in the wrong places.  x_x

First thing I hate- there are not enough furries around my area.  Not that's the fandom's fault, but it still makes me sad. >.>'


I hate how some people just refuse to learn or even comprehend that being furry is not just a fetish. I tried explaining the truth to a guy once, and he just kept ignoring what I said and saying things like "don't expect me to dress up in an animal suit as a sexual favor, lol." I wouldn't want that anyway. I'm asexual, for crying out loud.

I think those are the only negative things I've experienced so far... *knocks on wood*

Yeah,that makes me mad as well. many who think we use our fursuits for adult things and such and won't listen to what we say furry is and when we tell them that that stuff isn't part of the fandom,they won't listen to our explanations of the fandom

People who have bad body odor and come up to you when you're in fursuit and want to give you a hug. Eeeww.  :P  x_x

This next one has never happened to me, but I have heard stories from others:  People who think your fursuit/fursuit character is hot and sexy looking, and inappropriately grab or touch you in places they shouldn't. Especially people who "accidentally" do it in public places.  :o

It is a part of the fandom. As in, the fandom contains that. Though it's certainly not a major part of it like some people seem to think.  I would totally agree that the whole "furries are people that have sex in animal costumes" thing is very irritating.

Yeah. I'm sure there are some people in star trek who do it dressed up as Klingons or such,but yet it's this fandom that gets judged,when others get a pass.

I don't "hate" it but I does dissapoint me that the creativity can be low sometimes. What I mean by this (and don't take it the wrong way) is that I do browse a lot of furry art (SFW stuff because NSFW isn't my thing but if you like it, it doesn't bother me just don't smother me with unasked for porn.) I really wish there were more unique animals to look at. Now, I have nothing against foxes, wolves, cats, etc. But I'd like to see different body structures draw out. Different looking animals in different styles. Now I don't mean, "If you're a wolf change your fursona." No. People could just simply draw other things. Like, "Hey I got some free time maybe I'll draw a salamander or a tanuki!". Wolves are majestic, foxes are clever, and dragons are wise but I just want a variety of aesthetic. Now I know "You can't force people to draw what you like or maybe they do a lot of commissions." Yes I understand that. But I'm not evil for simply wanting others to really stretch those creative horizons. As one artist to the art community.

It also bothers me when other furs get upset because someone doesn't have the exact same opinion as them. I see this a lot with the NSFW content topics. People should be able to do what they want, within reason. For example two or more CONSENTING ADULTS. Basically if you are forcing someone sexually, you  sir or ma'am are a weiner. Now there are 18+ things in the furry fandom and others that I don't agree with or particularly like, but to each their own for example I don't understand vore at all or really care to know what it's all about. But I still have a friend who likes it and is into it. Do I judge him for it? Hell no. I treat him the same way I did before I knew.

But these are my opinions, I know not everyone is gunna like it or agree but that's a given. Sorry this was so long! Just after reading this thread I had to voice my opinion~

The lack of creativity and the constant asking for help with designing your fursona does grind my gears.

Kind-a in opposition to the last point, is how some people have tons of fursonas. Let me clarify that I don't have a problem with that. It's one of those "to each his own" things. However, as I understand it, the fursona is supposed to be an 'animalistic' reflection of yourself and who you are. For those of you who've read the Inheritance Cycle, I liken the fursona to being almost a furry personification of your true name.
I have very strong reasoning behind, for example, why I'm a fox and why I have mismatched eyes.
In any case, I can sort-a understand why people are always asking for help; personifying yourself in a single piece of art, as it were, is no easy task. Thing is, the person who can best help you with that journey-of-self is... yourself.

...aaaaand here's the crescendo:

What I truly hate about the furry fandom is the so-called "adult material." That's all of the porn/vore/size/whatever fetish stuff there is that's gotten into the Furry Fandom. I'm no Burned Fur, but all of that stuff was never originally part of the fandom.
If you couldn't tell (: I happen find that stuff terribly offensive and wrong.
As much as I may detest it however, nothing I do is going to stop it, nor am I about to start going about trolling and flaming those people.

I'm just going to sit back in my comfy chair, tail wrapped around me, and enjoy the warmth of my own fiery indignation.  :)

When one hears about furries trolling Tony the Tiger. Seriously?? Inappropriate comments sent to an advertising icon? Who thought that was funny? As if the fandom doesn't have an image (inaccurate as it may be) problem already. Fortunately that little furor died down quickly.

Do i scrape by the issue of too many fursonas by having a very strong awareness and understanding of the different parts of my personality, and therefore having multiple characters to represent different aspects of who i believe myself to be?  :D

Additionally, if you're ever asked for help in designing another person's fursona, just link them to this handy naming tool!

Excellent point there :D The mind is a complex thing and has many facets, and that's why someone's having a plethora of fursonas doesn't actually bother me.

Besides, how could one expect someone with MPD or schizophrenia to limit themselves to one fursona?  (:

you cant really say that stuff was never originally part of the fandom... (its highly likely that when the fandom was first actually getting connected, a few people might have been interested in adult material)

and i really dont see anything offensive/wrong about people being interested in that stuff (yes while many of the furries who are into that stuff do end up doing completely inappropriate things, there are those who keep that stuff to them self) people make adult artwork either for money, as a gift (if you think of it in a very specific way it makes sense), or just for allowing other people to enjoy the art.
by saying that stuff is wrong you are pretty much just insulting many good people that are out there.

(Let me begin by saying, GrayWolf, that I mean no offense to you, or anyone else, and that I hope to remain both civil in speech and neutral in temperament)

Whether or not the people who started the fandom themselves were into adult material is neither here nor there. If, say, in a theatre troupe you have a handful of actors/actresses who are Catholics, does that make Catholicism an integral part of the theatre troupe? No. The groups' beliefs are not expressed through the troupe, neither does something like religion have much to do with theatre.

In any case, that's not really what I wanted to get into.

I believe in the sacredness of the relationship between husband and wife. I believe in the sacredness of the human body. I thus believe that intercourse between any people other than husband and wife, as well as the public expression of nudity, is morally wrong. Whether people make money or gifts of such work is a no-count.
These are my beliefs and opinions, and I am entitled to them. I am not forcing them on anyone else.
I will also add that the forum topic specifically asked for individuals' opinions. I have done exactly that.

As many furries have said, regarding various furs' liking of mature content and other things, "Live and let live."
So may that apply to me as well.

(If you'd like to discuss this further, mayhap we'd best to do it through PMing)

well i guess that brings up the whole question about how the fandom started. from what i understand the whole history is kinda fuzzy (no pun intended) it also depends on what exactly it means to be a furry. but anyway as much as people deny it the adult material is part of the fandom (when it started is subject to debate)

while i respect your beliefs i was pretty much just saying that by believing that those things are wrong, you are kinda shutting out a lot of good/friendly people, and that it might be a good idea to put more though into what exactly is morally wrong for the things you listed.
(and btw the adult artwork within the fandom isnt always just random furries. there is artwork that was created for couples who just dont really care about the whole nude artwork of them selves)

The pun is appreciated nonetheless! :)

You're right; there are a lot of good people out there who have weird interests. I mean, that's kinda what we Furries are considered.

I do realize that I'm disassociating myself from those people, and, well, it's a choice that I can abide by. We're all a bit choosy, at times, with who we hang out or chat with, aren't we?

So, I go back to what I said earlier. I'm not gonna troll or flame those people. Instead, I'll be the only one who feels my "Fiery indignation." Distancing myself, in this case, is good, because then I don't start unnecessary arguments that no one is going to win.
And if someone wants to have a chat with me about something that interests us both, why shouldn't we converse? What matters is their interest in the subject at hand. I'm always happy to dive in, along with my two cents.

The whole militant furry thing that's happened every now and then, reacting to haters and bullies only gives them more ammo. It's kinda cringey almost, just let those that hate us smear themselves in their own excrement. They're just gonna make themselves stink and drive off their friends.

Artists who specialize in drawing characters created by others, then selling it kinda raises my eyebrows. It's nice to see fan art and original art, but flirting with copyright infringement...not cool.

I know it's common in furry-speak, but I don't like the term "fuzzbutt." Don't call me that. Please.
