All of my problems with the furry fandom have to do with people being over zealous about other things then working in furry stuff into their bad habits. it promotes the stigma that surrounds our "little" community.

- The lack of responsibility that tends to fall among the fandom. I have had people get upset with me for missing a convention (I was not their room-mate or anything that was crucial to them attending.) . It's a convention. I've been to 42 of them and each one is basically the exact same when it boils down to it. I feel that there are few furies in this age who take serious financial responsibility and when it comes to a choice between a convention or a rent/house payment, they choose the convention.

Agreed with this. ;) Or even better, how about the people who beg and whine right up to the last minute who need a room/roomshare?  >:(

I haven't personally found this one to be true.  People at the local meets here talk about everything from obscure board gaming to political debates.  ...I almost wish they would talk about furry stuff more.

Most furmeets in my area have the "not talking about anything that isn't furry" issue. Drives me nuts. Being furry isn't enough for me to build a friendship on, and if you're obsessive about one topic, I'm not likely to want to get to know you better anyway.

I honestly thought I'd never have anything more to add to this thread.

I was recently involved in a thread on a different furry forum. In a nutshell the opening post was,
There's this great new article about the furry fandom!!!! BUT this one troll comment was left.
The poster pasted the troll comment. Not a single word was quoted from the positive article. But every word of a single troll comment was there for everyone to be a victim of.  And there were plenty to be had. TEN posts. NOT a single word about the positive article. NOT ONE! Everyone gathered to be victims of yet another fandom ending troll comment. So I posted.  I thought one of the claims made by the troll was funny. Really not a good thing to do. I didn't know this at the time I posted. I didn't really think it threw. Sometimes you don't think to put one and one together. This thread wasn't about a positive article. It was about wanting to be victims. I'm not pointing at the other members of that forum. That's not what this post is about. It's about EVERY fury out there who looks for ways to be a victim. Then, despite all truth, holds on to being a victim for deer life.

I'm a Fury. Not a victim.

the lack of guides for how to create art of species X

where X is a less common species...aka not a fox, wolf, feline, or dragon

i'm not hating on those people for their fursona species choice, but there really isn't a lot of how to's for rabbits

I rather resent the general assumption that fursuiting leads to some sort of carnal activity. A clear case of projection on the part of the beholder with a dirty mind IMHO.

Yes, a thousand times yes! it is so validating to know that someone else has this same gripe, it is extraordinary how the less abundant species get somewhat screwed over.

Have you ever tried to find a tutorial on how to make hooves?! let alone digitigrade ones? it is absolutely impossible!

For me, the things I hate about the Furry fandom is Furry terms like "popufur". That term in particular irritates the crud out of me to no end. I don't use them because of how irritating they are

"everything porn that comes up with the word 'furry'

There is no else furry around me. Definitely no one my age. So I spend time searching for things on line. Did a You Tube search, refined my search with 'upload date'. Found two vids that looked like they'd be worth watching. A group of fursuiters laying on and touching each other. Why is the fandom it's own worst enemy?

My advice- reference, reference reference.  Your best bet is going to be to look outside the fandom because, to be blunt, furries tend to not be great at non-canine animals anyway.  Even if you can't find 'art' guide, chances are, especially for a domestic animal, you can find lots of photos and anatomical diagrams.  Rabbits have a pretty good base of information on them, skeletal charts, veterinary charts, hairless rabbits, and if you don't mind gore and death actual photos of their musculature.
Also I found a quick guide for you: http://akreon.deviantart.com/art/Rabbit-Drawing-Tips-317346589

I think I'm just playing a broken record here, but most of my issues with the fandom tend to stem from the 18+ category of work.   Seriously, it gives the fandom a bad rep, and you're only solidifying the stereotype that furries are perverts, when you decide to draw/write nothing but porn, especially the outlandish, weird, and sometimes vile kind that somehow makes it past the no-porn rules on some sites (I'm looking at you, deviantART!).

My second gripe is more or less a shallow one.  And that is the lack of diversity in fursona species.  Seriously, there are TONS of animals out in the world, a lot of them more exciting and more unique than the fandom favorites.  All you have to do is a little digging and you're bound to find something that strikes your fancy.

I think my greatest frustration is over finding local furs. Of all the fandoms and con-goers out there, I've met anime people, lots and lots of gamers, some trekies, but rarely any furs.

That's not to discount online friends and such, but meeting in person is important too.

The people who can't wrap their heads around the fact that being a furry is different for everyone. While you may think of it as a hobby, someone else thinks of it as a lifestyle, and someone else might fall in between.

Basically same here. If there's anything I've learned being in the fandom for 10 years, it's that people care way too much about whether or not someone is like them (I mean, that's people in general, but seems especially bad here). It's our differences in involvement and opinions that makes the fandom so interesting imo.

Also I personally don't have an issue with the furry porn thing, but details would be more suited to the adult forum.

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.
