I wore my tail to school. I ended up almost squeaking in delight after I got home, because everyone was smiling and laughing with me and just acted more open.

I've been thinkin
and I will do it on Thursday at the fire meet
other furs have shown up and as of last week they all know I have a tail in my possession
it went like this with a girl wearing a panther tail "hey is that a cat tail" I said "yah you wanna try it on?" she said
then I said "no thanks I have my own", then she said "really were is it?" by that time all the people at the meet were looking at me, then I turned my eyes towards my backpack "yah its in there" I said "really!" she said "why don't you wear it?"
then in a quiet reply I said "they are watching me (refuring to all the other kids from school that were watching the show)"
        then she reacted as id it didn't matter "what at school they care but now, no one cares"

but I've been thinking about it for a while
would like some feedback before I do it :goldglee:
I will see you all soon
in the future :goldgrin:

I find it a ton easier to do with other furries around.  Then it feels like there's a point to it.  Otherwise I just feel like i'm drawing attention to myself for no reason at all.

I once wore tails with furry friends while we were playing pool,  and some folks approached us who wanted to know all about the tails.  Green reaper started asking them why they didn't have any which was amusing... But together we were all able to give a pretty good explanation.  Was a lot of fun.

I've been wearing mine around for the past two weeks.  For the most part, it's been uneventful (which is fine with me), excepting one person who reacted rather loudly: "what the heck?!?! Please tell me you're not a furry!!" (I told him, "Yes, I am")
I expect gossip to do it's job in the coming days... That's fine though, because I don't even know him that well, nor care what anyone thinks. :P

I have learned that wearing a tail tells me a lot about the people around me; I appreciate the people who simply ask "Hey, what's that? Why are you wearing it?" over the people who just stop in their tracks and gawk, but quickly look away and pretend they weren't staring when I look at them.  It's just really unnerving to realize people I don't know are watching me (though I suppose that's just the price you have to pay wearing a giant fluffy tail around).  People who ask tend to be friendlier about it, and go about there business without making a big deal of it after I explain.

My mother won't let me wear any of my tails in public. (Though she did once let me wear an ear-hat out.) Inside the house, however, is fine. I haven't openly told her that I'm a Furry, but she knows I wear ears and tails (they're pretty hard to not see :D) , and she has told me, "You're not making one of those suits", so she clearly knows something. Any ideas for convincing her to let me wear tails/ears outside?

If she hasn't explicitly said "no", then I'd go ahead and do it, making it seem like "not a big deal".  Hopefully, if she even to notices at that point, she would realize that she doesn't really need to be concerned because it's not having any serious effects.  I think in many cases, the act of bringing it up to ask permission makes it seem like a bigger deal than it is (and therefore more concerning to your parents).

Otherwise, at least you have halloween as an excuse (which you could *probably* stretch to cover the weekend as well :P)

She has said "no", despite my acting like it's perfectly normal to wear a great big fluffy thing  (well maybe not hugely fluffy) on ones behind, and like it's normal to wear cat/dog/wolf ears atop ones head while trying to leave the house. I make them myself, and no animals are harmed in the making of them, so the only problem my Mum could reasonably have with them in my opinion is social norms, and we've recently moved from a pretty rough area into a little village where everyone seems to be friendly, so I don't see why I'm not allowed now. Meh; less than two years before I can make my own decisions. Then... Chaos shall reign! No... um... Then I will be able to wear them freely.
Though on Hallowe'en I was at a friends house, and we went round in the daytime, she wearing my fake ears, I wearing my yarn tail. It was extremely amusing to see all the people pretending not to notice.  :D (:

My mom doesn't seem to have a problem with me wearing a tail out in public. However, she draws the line at formal public outings (i.e. dinner/lunch with extended family in resturaunts). I can underatand her reasoning there and am happy to go tailless. Though I do take my purse, which has the twp tail keychains I owe. She hasn't said anything about the keychains, so I guess they're fine.

I've yet to wear any of my tails in public despite moving out almost 4 months ago ... then again I don't really go out much because I'm pretty introverted ... If I was in a group I'd wear it though, I really need to meet with the other fur I found in my town.

I go to a creative arts school, so a lot of people wear tails. X3
I got mine made by a friend, blue and black striped ( http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=2itpvnt&s=9#.Vkz_ZMBb2hA ). He put a squeaker in it, and I've worn it everyday since I got it last week. I love the way it bounces when I walk, and I squeak it to punctuate jokes, or to say hi to my friends in the hallway. I never really thought of it being a weird thing, because I've only gotten compliments, but I suppose a lot of people aren't as accepted in school or work. Wearing a tail is really fun, and if you're on the fence about it, I say go for it!

I've worn a tail in public before... I didn't have a sona figured out yet, so I just borrowed my friend's reptilian tail. She had a fox or wolf tail, and we walked around the neighborhood and went to out to eat. I know there were a couple of people who were watching us like, "...what?", but meh.. whatever. XP

I haven't got a tail or ears or anything like that, but I'm making a dragon fur suit for Halloween, and I'm definitely wearing the wings and tail and stuff to school. Just need to make everything in time.

I'm actually thinking of making a little penguin tail to wear to places. My mother thinks it's "silly" of an idea and so far I haven't coaxed her into helping me in any way to make it yet. :(

I spoke to my fiancée about wearing a tail in public, purely hypothetically. She replied with 'I am sick of you never following through on these things when you ask my opinion, I don't care what you do as long as it makes you happy!' My tail is in the post as I type!

Here is my tail, wore it to a meet on Saturday and to the meal after with friends. All I got was people asking if it was real...

I wore mine to school a few weeks ago. I got 90% negative responses, because everyone at the 'tolerant' charter school I go to is kind of a..... But  I think I'll wear it more often, and maybe a collar too. It's nice and warm to sit on when it's cold outside anyways. :P
