Morning Horsefarts: 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.


Haha, I'm sorry, you're probably right but it's so hard to take someone complaining about the furry fetishdom seriously when their screenname is Morning Horsefarts.

spamdog: Some of you might not know, but on 4chan, there's a group of 100 bronies or so, who have kept up an active thread on the /b/ board for almost 2 years straight now. They don't even discuss the show, it's just a big circle jerk, small talk, and mutual admiration. They have their own dedicated board, but refuse to use it. Mods delete their threads and ban them frequently, but they simply reset their router or use a new proxy to continue posting.

Why they would persist in doing this in a hostile environment, I don't know. I suspect some kind of narcissistic personality disorder is at work.


On 4chan? Surely, you jest!

Bullseye.

fusillade762: Furries were three times less likely to consider themselves exclusively heterosexual than non-furries, four to five times more likely to say they were exclusively homosexual, and far more likely to report bisexuality or orientations such as pansexuality or asexuality

Interesting.


The 23.5% of furries also identifying as bronies did not significantly differ from other furries in most respects; they reported greater experience of bullying, slightly worse physical health, and appeared to have a slightly less-formed sense of identity

Furries did not differ significantly to American non-furs with regard to psychological or relationship health, or self-esteem, but had a more-developed sense of self and identity

Still trying to wrap my head around this part.


Yeh, I'd say if you dress like a Disney chipmunk to socialize and have "sex", I'd say you have a pretty well-developed sense of self and idenity. I'd say you have self-realized and accepted your own farked up identity. You probably know some good dry-cleaners, too.

I have, until now. Still, I'd like to know what this term means. Also, who the fark funds something called an "Anthropomorphic Research Project"?


Social psychologists study any and every stratum of society...almost always one with the same characteristics as the researcher. In my department (I study neuroscience within my school's psych department), it's not uncommon to see poster presentations hung up about the experience of gay Christian Latinos, or something else odd like that, conducted by that odd androgynous Venezuelan dude that eyerapes you daily.

I can see where you're coming from. As a collective force, we can be annoying like that. Part of the virality is that because it's already been mashed up with everything, it's virtually guaranteed that in any thread of sufficient length, there's likely to be at least something to which a brony can relate. When the first one calls it out, the rest of the herd jumps in, and once the avalanche has begun, it's too late for the pebbles to vote.

Furries are a very well developed subculture that's been around for decades. They have tried very hard to be respected, and more importantly, they just want to be left alone to do their thing without bothering anyone.

Bronies have been around just a year or two now, they have lots of /b/tards, they spew their image memes everywhere, are very high profile, and you can get damn near any of them to admit to wanting to fark ponies. Furries might want to have sex with animals but at least they won't come out and SAY it to a complete stranger. In general, bronies are even creepier then furries. Bordering on rapist territory in terms of their social deficits and creepiness. I don't think bronies are rapists btw, just the ones who are 'out' are just as creepy as rapists.
