Cyno01: Lunchlady: It's endless. There are thousands of fetishes in the deep dark recesses of the internet and most are content to stay there.

Cyno01: fluffy2097: //Ask any furry about Yiff and its "oh god, you saw that CSI episode. It's not like that."

In my experience with the furries i know online and IRL... it is. Granted thats not all its about, and not every furry is a furvert... but i think its probably something like this.

[i.imgur.com image 562x562]


I ran a website hosting business for a while. A furry wanted a site, and not exactly wanting to be known as "that guy who hosts furry porn", I asked them if they were going to upload porn. "NO WE AREN'T FURVERTS. WHY WOULD YOU THINK THIS?" Insert long essay about how furries aren't ALL perverts.

Three months later, I kill the virtual host because it's a swamp of furry porn.

Furries == Perverts. Anyone who tells you otherwise is in denial, or lying through their teeth.

TheDumbBlonde: WTF is a "bronie"?


I know someone downstream posted a link to what a bronie is but I'm too scared to click or Google it. Does it somehow involve cartoon ponies?
 
2012-09-23 08:41:57 PM
From my perspective Furries are more organized and are more of a culture where as the bronies are more of a undercurrent of that culture.

Like otherkin are also in the furry region of internets, but they most definitely are also bonkers. General furries I know just like having sex in fursuits and are more hippy tier than I want to fark a sheep tier.

Bronies are more I want to actually fark a pony as it will be my waifu, otherkin believe they are the pony where as most furries are just roleplaying and aware of that.

So the earlier point with kinks isn't a point, the mental differences are quite great between roleplay and actually doing things.

Lunchlady: Beluga Heights: You know. I think it's fine to be a furry -- if everyone is consenting and on board and old enough I mean I guess most things are okay, even if I find them personally something I'm not interested in. The backlash against people who like to dress up like a dog/horse/cat and get farked doesn't make a ton of sense to me. To each his own I suppose. And let's be honest. Even the most "normal" among us has probably wanted to things they'd never publicly admit to.

I don't think that's the basis of the backlash though. I think must people get fed up with furries and bronies because they make everything about those two things. Is there a popular video game? They should make a game about ponies! Is there a popular movie? Here's my fanpic of the main characters as tigers! You like Harry Potter? What if Harry had sex with Hermione who had been turned into a cat?

It's endless. There are thousands of fetishes in the deep dark recesses of the internet and most are content to stay there.


I can see that. That bit of information did slip past me when I made my first observation. All the fan art of major characters of games/movies as like wolves having sex is bizarre. But I just don't like to condemn people because I probably like certain things other people would regard as strange. On the other hand, I would never subject my fetishes onto the unwilling or uninterested.

Arthur Jumbles: TheDumbBlonde: WTF is a "bronie"?

I know someone downstream posted a link to what a bronie is but I'm too scared to click or Google it. Does it somehow involve cartoon ponies?


Brony is name given to people who are participating in embracing the fandom of My Little Pony-Friendship Is Magic and it's community of artists and enthusiasts.

That's it. End. Anything else is something someone else is trying to add to it, which us not present at its core.

(You may also find the term Pegasister used to describe female fans, although most of them also go by "bronies". The reason for that is because the etymology of brony uses the masculine "bro" in the portmanteau of bro's and pony)

No to which part?

No to the asserting that there is a sexual undercurrent to bronies, more than there is with any other fandom.


So you are saying most furries love fursuits and all that in a nonsexual manner?

Good lord, why would you want to wear a corset? Women hated them so much it became part of the suffrage movement.

Whips, handcuffs, the occasional slap, maybe even a taser - I can understand that. Corsets are just farking torture. You may as well admit to liking waterboarding.

Or are we talking about decorative corsets that don't actually torture the wearer? I can't tell. Some people get off on being ridiculously uncomfortable.

weird, we were discussing furries in one of my classes last semester (my professor finds the topic fascinating) and it's only recently that psychologist are looking into furries and based on one study the only thing they concluded was furries were more likely to have facial hair, or something strange like that. We didn't talk about bronies though

They make Fat women into skinny women with big boobs. This is why they are incredibly popular with the renfaire and BDSM crowd. The BDSM crowd likes the pain too. Mostly though, it's about fitting 50 pounds of fat in a 10 pound outfit.

People who actually MAKE the things for either scene tend to get a lot of poon. Most of it unfortunate.

Not that I want to get into the "defending bronies" camp, but was this even a worthwhile exercise? I'm sure the Brony in question wasn't giving a speech to the Family Council Matters group, or something like that. And if he wasn't speaking to the class, then the whole point is lost, isn't it?

I suppose if a Brony was giving a speech at the "We think Anthropomorphism is bullshiat" yearly conference might prove the point, but otherwise it doesn't make sense.

Let me guess, public school teacher?

I dunno, it seems to me if that you have to pretend you're a dog to be able to have sex, you're completely dissociating and don't have any true sense of self. Yes, you're aware of your...limitations, but you have very little identity grounded in the truth, like for instance, that you are a sexual human and that the person (hopefully it's a person) that you are farking is also a human no matter how desperately you wish it were otherwise.

So yes, a sense of self, no sense of identity. Makes perfect sense to me.
