NullReferenceException: Honest question about furries: I've only heard about them through online mockery and an episode of CSI. Do they actually use terms like yiffing etc.? Was the portrayal on CSI what their get-togethers are actually like, aside from the the murder (probably)?


Honestly, not in the scale that's given attention.

Most of the people who identify as "furry" are those drawn to a sense of community over the simplicity of animals. The younger, hippie furries talk about how animals don't hate or commit wars or any of the other crap that man has done, while the older furries just like socializing with people who don't judge. If you look at them as a whole, the majority of the fur community just wants to be left the bloody hell alone. The few screaming tools who actually do fark in suit are the ones that get the attention, much like the Westboro Baptist idiots.

The one convention I did go to (Louisville FurCon a few years back) as a "guide human", meaning that my buddy was in suit and it was my job to make sure his dumb ass didn't fall down stairs, dehydrate, or get kicked by assholes. The coolest thing I saw was part of the ticket money was going towards a no-kill animal shelter, so I've given the fur community a general pass.

publikenemy: Is it a sexual thing with these furries? It's always a sexual thing somehow...just not sure how. Let's not encourage this, lest people may want to experiment....then next thing you know they'll wanna be legally married.


No. Furries just tend to be more open about their sexuality and the internet LOVES to hategasm over a yiff show. Any time one happens you hear about it because well, it generates hits.

I imagine the rest of the fandom is more like "Goddamnit, we designated a back room for that shiat for a REASON! The mundanes always freak out!"

My gay furry romance novel is linked in my profile. And it's even available on paper now if that's your thing.

That said: only a small percentage of furries fursuit (It's expensive), and a tinier percentage of those hump in their suits (because the suits are expensive among other reasons).

Summercat: Yes, this happened. No, we have no clue who the hell these assholes are.

Further info on the BBQ event, it was also a fundraiser for the squad that was hosting it, several members of which are furries. This even had been going on for years, and was a fairly major regional thing.

All dead and gone now because two farktards thought it'd be funny to hump each other in suit in public. I ever find out for certain who these guys are, I'll be doing all I can do make certain that they'll not find a happy welcome within the fandom elsewhere.

.


can you get a copy of the police report with the farktards names, and hopefully pictures of the suits they were in?

Theaetetus: It's not such a huge jump from Cosplay to Fursuits, y'know.


I'd yiff that.

BronyMedic: I'm also shocked that someone would let them use the Rescue Squad to have their party. Are they like community centers for you yankees?


Yes. Many firehouses, particularly those of volunteer companies, can be rented out for events and parties. It's one way for them to help defray costs and make up for the fact that the government doesn't cover all their funding.

BronyMedic: I'm going to go out on a limb here and say when you spend ten thousand dollars + on a life-like fursuit of a cartoon character with realistic genitalia, then you have a problem. A major problem.


What is status within your peer group worth? Why is buying a $10k fursuit any worse then spending the same amount on, say, golf clubs to impress your buddies?

Actually, going from Ringshadow's comments, the fursuit is probably a better investment from an RoI perspective if your objective is getting laid.

Imagine if he had a dildo? No he had a dildo, and it likely has a name as well. Go on, Google Dragon dildo.


You're talking about Bad Dragons, right?

I dated a girl who had one of those back before I got married. She seemed to love it.

Oldiron_79: ZAZ: It went better than the time conservative suburban police executed a warrant in Attleboro, Mass. and discovered an S&M party. S&M is illegal in Massachusetts; consent is not a defense to harmful battery. Arrests were made.

So the Massholes are even more backwards and prudish than Mississippi?


Yes, Rammstein was arrested in Massachusetts for this stage act:

Bück Dich

24 hours in jail for the two participants (Till-top and Flake-bottom) and a ridiculous $25 dollar fine for an act they've done all over the world. Which is why the MiG tour this year in the US had a face-mounted water spraying thingy instead. MASSholes indeed.

Herbert said the couple, who could not be identified, engaged in "inappropriate behavior." They were spotted outside the building in the middle of the day, according to accounts of the party posted online by attendees.

Okay, I'm calling shenanigans on this. There's no way in hell you can get two people:
1. outdoors in the middle of the day,
2. in New Jersey,
3. on Memorial Day, and
4. wearing fursuits,
and still have them capable of doing ANYTHING "inappropriate" without passing out from heat-stroke.

Yes and no.

The majority of people who identify as furry do so because they enjoy the culture - i.e. they enjoy art, stories and fanfiction, or roleplaying involving it. Even smaller are the amount of people who do it because they enjoy the drawn pornography, or erotic works of literature.

And then you have these guys. And yes, they do call it yiffing.

Really? I found myself liking Jay Naylor before I realized what his art usually is. Even the artists that do draw porn I've found I get into them because of the safe for work stuff they do.
