There isn't any reason to talk about being furry, or any other
hobby you have an interest in. Instead I would suggest finding
people with the same interests by going to conventions and
other places where you can learn more. That's one nice thing
about the internet. It's easy to find others with the same
interests.

The furry fandom being what it is often requires explantions to
to convince others your not strange, but have an honest interest
in art, and stories of fantasy. So it's best to avoid public displays
by yourself. These days individuals in costume are often looked at
with suspicion. Especially if they are alone.

In my case my mother saw a group of furries having an orgy in the desert in their fursuits on "1000 Ways to Die" so, naturally now she thinks that's what I'm into and that I need to "cut that crap out". At least that's what she said some five odd years ago or so... I just don't bring it up anymore. No need to.

It sucks that my parents have such a limited and negative understanding of what it means to be part of this fandom. It makes me feel like I have to be a little secretive or just let them look over my shoulder when drawing but not explain it to them. I just never thought they'd completely understand. =/
