I will most definately go with a furry mate or nothing at all.

Why is this, out of curiosity?

'<img'>  *sighs happily* Having an anthro fur mate would be most wondrous! Snuggling against all that fur and having a bushy tail wrapped around my waist as we walk along the beach would be a dream come true!

Thank the stars for art, writing and imagination to bring some dreams to life!  '<img'>

I certainly hope in the next life, I get to choose where and what I am!

Most definatley, though most people don't seem to be as fond of scales as fur *pokes at his scaly arm* ':p' .
 And if not that, I'd prefer a furry mate to a non-furry one myself.

Most definetly, but since that won't happen I'll settle for a furry female or at least one who accepts that I'm furry. Workin' on one now.

Furry mates are better than regular human; every furry I've met has been either random and fun or quiet and understanding.

Correcting others who do not ask to be corrected is rude. I know the feeling in both ends.

Oh, Salem.

What you're saying, then, is that any ignorant, rude, offending, misled, or otherwise generally unacceptable comment we come across should be ignored, unless the person in question actively states that he would like others to present their views and argue with/correct him.

Unfortunately, it just doesn't work like that. Firstly, if someone makes such an outrageous statement such as "x people are better than y people", they are opening themselves up to attack/argument. People will disagree, and they have just as much right to present their argument as the original person did to present their views. One cannot simply waltz around spouting their opinions and thoughts, and expect everyone to listen yet not to combat them.

Secondly, arguing ideas can help to reinforce, develop, and expand them. It's all part of progress and evolution. Arguing and debating makes you think, and being made to rethink and re-evaluate your ideas is a Good Thing. It can either a) build and strengthen the foundations of your ideas and help you to defend them adequately (which is practically essential if they're views such as the example I gave up above), or b) make you see the flaws in your logic, and allow you to adopt new and better ideas instead. Can you honestly say that never having your ideas or thoughts contested unless you allow them to be is good?

In my experience, the ones who find it "rude" or "offending" when I find flaws in their logic and attempt to present an alternative point of view, are the ones who simply refuse to open their minds and think outside their little "safety shell", because they are scared to think differently, scared that the other person may be right, and scared that their perfect little utopian illusion of a world that they cling to may suddenly shatter in the presence of logic and common sense.

That is very true Arquin................................................
On the original topic....I voted furry mate because it would be neat to have someone with similar points of view....but I don't think it would matter whether they were furry or not...just open minded is all I am looking for.....I'm so sick of the world and all of the close-minded fools who can't bear to think outside the box - - who can't bear to face up to life's harsh realities.....though I am not sure that I am even ready to face up to life's boot striking upon my fragile jaw......
There are entirely too many things to get down about...so I (try to) look up...at the better things to come, though sometimes it feels as there is nothing good on it's way....
....don't mind me and my rambling on about stuff.......just gotta keep busy...

It's true but you are the only one who is actually offended by that remark. Also, I don't think this is the appropiate forum to argue against others about that subject... Just take a look around.

I don't care. As long as he accepts me the way I am, I could care less about whether or not he's a furry.

I wasn't "offended" by the remark Arquin criticized, but he was right that it was excessively ignorant.

Also I find it amusing that in "correcting" Arquin you are doing the exact same thing you told him he shouldn't do.

What do you suggest? This is the the "human or furry" thread in the Lifestylers forum...it looks to me like the most suitable place in the whole message board. And I think others will agree with me when I say that arguing against a point someone makes in a thread is quite a bit more interesting than a series of one-line posts where people simply reiterate what the poll already shows.

Try reading my long post up there again.

I'm certainly willing to stand up and agree with Arquin here.

First and foremost, You have the right to choose a mate for whatever reasons you want. If you want to date someone that's a Furry, then go ahead, but do it for a better reason than 'Non-Furries are close minded'. That is one of the most hypocritical, closeminded statements that I've heard in a while. Though it did get a laugh out of me.

To say that Furries are more open minded and accepting than what they refer to as Humans(Really, it would simply be people that aren't Furries, but I digress...) is one of the most incorrect statements that I have heard. Furries have just as much Bias and Hate towards others as anybody else. The Bias happens to be in a different direction.

Grouping humans together and saying, "They're all  close-minded, non-understanding, and they're not fun." is kind-of like saying, "All furries are perverts." Bias is not always a bad thing. Bias is what keeps us from all being alike. And if everyone was the same, where would all the fun be.
