1. I`m a Furry. But if you met me you would never know.

2. 1 in 700,00 is incorrect. I meet at least one Furry online each day. Depending on where I am living at the time, I meet anywhere from 1-3 in real life. We are everywhere.

3. It is not a fetish. I have tons of fetishes. Being a Furry is not one of them. It`s a lifestyle. I happen to love bellybuttons and and ropes. Those are fetishes.

4. All different types of people are Furries. White, black, blue, and orange. Gay, straight, Bi, TG, A-sexual...

5. Being Furry does not mean you want to have sex with animals. It means you love animals and can identify with them. You may have animal spiritual beliefs. I am a cat. I have a cat as a pet. She is a b.itch. I love has anyways. I don`t dress up in a cat costume, but I paint my body and face. I am black with purple stripes.

6. Furries rock. Well, most of them do. And most are insanely talented when it comes to drawing.

Mk. I`m done. =^_^=

But why do the fursuits all look so LAME! im all for this furry stuff, i meen what the hell it doesnt affect me, furries having sex with each other at conventions doesnt bother me at all. But why the gash costumes, i meen COME ON some of them are just second hand school mascots. Its not the worst fad in the world tho.

A lot of people on here are very misinformed. Especially you, Batmanners. No, being furry isn`t like bestiality. Not all furries get off to anthro animal porn, and not all furries have sex with people in fursuits, or even other furries. Actually, I think the definition from Urban Dictionary almost perfectly describes how varied furry culture is albeit being somewhat of a backhanded compliment (sort of):

Possibly the strangest sub-culture in all of geekdom. Furries range from being harmless fans fascinated by anthropomorphic characters and animals, to immensely withdrawn or self-absorbed persons who actually believe, or want to believe, they`re eagle-winged fox-like versions of themselves with giant genitalia who wouldn`t dare be anything else that could be considered mundane. Furries defy any conventional or unifying definition.

The second definition is very long and detailed, and will give you a better idea of what a furry is.

Now do you all see what simple research can do?

I really don`t understand the appeal. I guess it`s like having a foot fetish or something..

But really.. Isn`t it kind of like beastiality?
Why would anyone want to dress up like an animal and have sex with other people dressed up like animals. I mean, I`m not like.. Against it. It`s just weird to me.

Oh and did you know that 99% of all statistics are false?

so being 1 in 700,000 makes you normal.......

Also people who devote their lives to video games or movie or sports dont call it a lifestyle, they call it an obsession, and even then most of the world think those people need help.

ya

stop trying to tell us your normal or healthy. The truth is your just a normal human being with some serious issues. The more you tell us your normal and try to force us to accept you the more we`ll hate you.

Also why is it considered abnormal to have sex with animals, but not abnormal to have sex with pretend animals? Is it because Furries watched to many cartoons as kids whereas the others just spent more time in the barn?

Oh!
And having orgies with other animals...that didn`t come out right...
I meant having orgies with women dressed as animals and they act like them too...
But only 20% of them are female...so sometimes, I pretend they really are animals..because homosexuality is gross

Die furries die!

Furries are freaks of life.
They fail miserably at life and should end it...they should keep it to themselves because it is disgusting. The North American population is way too tolerant of crap nowadays and it`s getting ridiculous. Furries should be banned from existence, sick perverted sickos. And CSI had it DEAD ON, which is why you`re mad about the episode, it made you realize how disgusting your so-called "hobby" really is, you freak.

I will never accept furries as regular people, and will mock them and insult them if I ever see them. Being a furry is your hobby? Take up suicide, that one`s more constructive.

Controversy, pat125. People bash furries, people rush to defend them, people rush to attack more... and thus, the site becomes saturated with furries. It`ll be over soon, don`t worry. Worry about what`ll come next instead.

are furries the I am bored topic of the week? there`s always so much retarded drama concerning who these people are, what they do, how people react to them and how they react to other people that I tend to avoid this subject altogether. seriously, feel free to be who you want if it isn`t hurting anyone. I`m fine with people doing whatever they want so long as they don`t shove it in my face I`m fine with it.

Furries are the easiest group to troll. The majority of them get so upset. It`s not that I have a problem with them, whatever floats your tub toys, but if you`re gunna fly off the handle when I make a snide comment about your "fetish" or whatnot, I`ll make a note to do it more often. =p

I`m gonna take a stab at this.

So does anyone know if they might like furry art just because it`s an interesting concept?

I think you people are way too judgemental. I usually look up some facts on something before I even open my mouth.

I imagine NOT ALL of them get off to it.

But, whatever.

Hooray for people who want to be/have sex with an animal.

Is it hypocritical for me to support homosexuality but not furries? Yes, but one must draw a line between socially acceptable,really damn disgusting, and I think people that get hard when they`re watching looney tunes is a good place for it.

If watching a chip and dale`s dancer gets you off, that`s great, if watching a chip and dale cartoon does it, keep it that crazy fetish (lifestyle implies a significant difference from a non-fur`s life, and most furs claim that they`re just like any other person) to your self.

Wow, what a boring video for a totally ridiculous phenomenon.

I don`t understand. . . if only 20% of furries are female, but more than half are straight and more likely to have heterosexual sex, who are these guys having sex with?

They are more likely to have heterosexual sex. . . or they would, if they could move out of their mom`s basement.

BASIC:

Furries are fans of anthro animals and artwork, and no, not in a sexual way, although obviously there`s those who are into that sorta thing.

Fursuiters are the people who dress up as animals. Not all furries are fursuiters.

raging_n - The background music is a classical cover of Dashboard Confessional`s "Hands Down."

And this was a reeeeeeally boring video. I don`t care about furries one way or another. I`m not one myself, but I don`t give a damn about what they do in their spare time. That being said: Nothing in this video was even mildly interesting or thought provoking.

And I think I`m going to break Turkey`s record for having the smallest furry convention. I`m holding it today, in my living room, right now. Attendance: 0. I win.

I`d like to second Catkilller here, portraying furries with fursuits and those inner animals is a lot like portraying christianism with only aggressive evangelists and bible thumpers. (No offense intended to anyone.)

Just have to say myself that-

A. Pretty much all of that except for the donations to charity and the Pittsburg economy (Anthrocon) is BS.

B. One furry cannot explain another. To put it to a really bad example, a hydrogen molecule cannot say how all helium molecules act this way and that way, even though they`re still part of the Periodic Table.

C. That being said... Most of the furries do not get off on fursuits, and almost every one I have talked to does not believe they have an inner animal. The ones I`ve talked to simply enjoy the art (which does not have to be pornographic, by the way, keep that in mind) and simply talking with others who share interests.

It`s not a fetish. It`s not a freakshow. It`s people enjoying a lifestyle. As EvilM said... It`s just as much a lifestyle as playing lots of sports is.

I`ve found a flaw in the furry logic (not that hard, but still). They think they`re animals trapped in humans, right? And they dress up as the animal they believe/wish they were. Tracking so far? Here`s where the logic fails.

Why do they get off to anthropomorphic artwork? If they think they`re animals, they should get off on Animal Planet, not Disney. If they truly think they`re animals, they would see the anthropomorphic artwork as disgusting as it is to us.

Good luck telling them this, however, they have the worst prosecution complex on earth.

OK... if you are going to try to explain something to someone who (like me) has NO CLUE about WTF a furry is, don`t you think that maybe you should put some VISUALS into it as well? That was informative but being a VISUAL person that I am I NEED a VISUAL not just a bunch of words floating across the screen. If I wanted that then I could have just had someone read it to me... meh.

If all of you little snotwipes can be fine with homosexuality, interracial relationships, but somehow someone dressing up as an animal is freaking blasphemy, then you`re honestly the absolute epitome of why it takes generations to even make a progress with hate.

OK, to clear things up, furries are fans of anthropomorphic art and/or fursuiters (check the furies vs. trekkies post). For what it`s worth Fayth, being a furry isn`t just a fetish. In fact, it`s no more a fetish than devoting your life to sports, or technology, or video games is a fetish. Weird... OK, i can understand why you think it`s weird, but it`s completely harmless! When was the last time you ever heard of a furry thug or vandal (and please don`t meantion the stupid CSI episode)?
And also, I`m sure their are more than 100,000 furries worldwide. I certanly can`t remember being asked.

Okay... still doesn`t explain what a "furry" is.

From seeing that I would guess that these people get off to dressing up as animals? I searched for some of the things they mention and all i found was a lot of pornographic artwork of humanized animals, borderline bestiality stuff...

Also, the "facts" in this video reminded me of one of those "73% of all statistics are made up on the spot" type of thing.
