I wanna start wearing my to every high class restaurant I go to, which the only time I go to really nice dinning establishments is during conventions. I wanna wear mine again too the place I went to during Furry Weekend Atlanta just to see if they remember me, as I'm probably the only person that's attended there restaurant, while wearing a tail, collar, and high quality straight jacket. I also plan to wear mine after I transfer to UNCA to classes starting in Fall 2014, since I'll be in a new town and all that so I can kind of start over XD and just be that Weird Shy Gothic Furry Nerd again XDDD

I would like to get a tail, but my parents don't even know that I'm a furry. Although if questions start being asked I have already written a 1200 word 2 1/2 page essay so I could easily explain myself.

If I ever get a tail I would most likely just wear it around the house because I have no self-confidence whatsoever, but then again I might wear it public and screw dignity just because I like being 'different'.

Although I don't have one at the moment, I'll just make a look-alike of my fursuit tail and frolic along everywhere with it, get a good few stares.

There are people who really think a tail gives a bad image, I don't understand how since it doesn't identify immediately with anything illegal or negative. Not many people seem to know what furry is so I don't worry about the stereotype, I wouldn't be bothered to say that I am a furry but it would take too much time to explain it. I decided to wear my tail anyways, no one can say its wrong.

I'm hoping to get a tail and ears soon.  :D I'm not that shy when it comes to the things I wear, so once I get them, I'm just going to go everywhere with them.  :)

I can kind of see where they're coming from.  Like every alternative style of dress, a person should be able to turn it off, and while it might be a way to have fun, it shuldn't be a requirement for fun.  There should be a little consideration before just going out wearing a tail, since while it isn't doing anything wrong, it might be inappropriate for the setting or look a bit 'off'.  Before wearing it out, you should ask yourself "Where am I going?  Who am I with?  What else will I be wearing?  Is there any special occasion?"
If you're going to be some place crowded or where people are going to be trying to work or concentrate, it probably isn't a great idea since they can be a bit distracting and can also accidentally hit somebody or invade their space.  If you're with a group of friends, generally you can get away with a little bit more 'fun' ways of dressing, even if they aren't also wearing tails.  I think of tails as accessories, so they should make sense with your outfit.  A tail paired with some sweats is going to look worse and somehow stranger than if paired with a full subculture outfit.  And finally, if there is a formal event you're attending, unless otherwise stated, leave it at home.  If it's a costume party, meet-up, or generally a 'fun day' go right ahead.

You know if you don't go "showing it off" no one really cares all that much, unless it's really out of place then you'll turn a few heads XD

I really want to get a tail and wear it around, but I live in a small town area where nobody knows what a furry is, I know a few that do but they just know what it is, they are not furries. But I don't think I should wear ears and a tail around, people at my school would take them and then hide them somewhere then burn them or even just throw them in the dump somewhere where I couldn't find them. I feel if I had someone else that would do this with me, this wouldn't happen but yea I'm out of luck :(

Time to crash some white collar workers nice dinner out. I'm going to Atlanta again in two months, and but of course I got reservations at one of the most fancy high class restaurants in Atlanta again, and but of course I plan to wear my tail when I go along with my collar, tripp pants, and straight jacket; I may wear a wig and ears not decided yet. However I'll also be in the company of about 4 other cosplayers (My sister and friends whole will also probably all have tails as well). Time to turn some heads and get glares and stairs while enjoying the best quality food Atlanta has to offer :D

I'm still a bit self conscious about my tail in public because of a a few mean comments i've gotten from random strangers or sometimes people whispering things about me like "look at that freak" or "is she wearing at tail?what a weirdo" i've even had people pointing and laughing at me in my own street.It's really been bringing me down lately but i'm going to keep wearing it regardless.I'm proud to be a furry and as long as i'm not causing any harm what's wrong with wearing tails?as long as im happy why does it matter what other people think :D

I think in general most coasters you sit, so unless it's really, really, long, you'll just sit on it with it contained in the car and it wouldn't dangle at all.  Like the tip might peek out if you point it towards the door, but probably by even less than a tall person's knee would.

True, depends on the type of roller coaster...

I'm getting a tail first, like trio coloured. Then I would wear it around my house and front garden  (: :) (:

After getting my tail. I'm getting a Partial. Then after some time I tranform it into fullsuit  :goldthpt:
