At least it was a fairly balanced show on the fandom.  

Thanks for the link Saiyu  :orbunny:

Can't ask for much more then that, considering how unbalanced it's usually portrayed...

This is always irritating because they don't give a wide enough definition and people automatically go to the "they have sex with animals!" It's just annoying having people feel the need to explain something which they really do not have any clue about. Especially when they only touch on one part of the definition.

While the definition for 'furry' that they use is a bit narrow, I feel like beyond that, it was a fairly balanced assessment of things overall.

Shows like this don't cover single topics extremely in-depth, because they only have a short amount of time. this video was a tad over 7 minutes long. It would be impossible to really do a fair and comprehensive assessment of all the facets of the fandom in such a short amount of time.

As such, they have to pick and choose what they do cover. And let's face it: one of the most visible parts of the fandom from an outside point of view (and probalby one of the more obscure) is the fursuit. So I've just grown to expect at this point that shows like this will mostly focus on suiters.
