It's gotta be hot and uncomfortable in those suits. If they really like animals that much and feel an affinity towards them, they ought to get a pet and fark it on occasion.

It's a body image thing more than an animal thing.

Looks like the photog bought a bunch of fursuits & staged the whole thing.

Also--why is so much hate in furry threads?
Is it just that the targets sit a few sigmas from the mean on sexual histograms, and are usually nerds as well?  Or is there something else going on?
Are they really gingers under those suits?

It's a natural aversion to an unnatural perversion. In many ways it mirrors the struggle of homosexuals to gain social acceptance in the face of a culture that did not want to accept them.

So it was a bear in a bear suit wearing a bear costume?

So, as sure as I am that these particular photo's were simply staged, do real furries actually wear their suits for day to day activities?  I'd always figured they just put their suits on for when they were around other furries but TFA made me wonder if there are 'full time furries'.

Why nothing.  Nothing at all.
There is absolutely no reason to expect that a person's furriness involves their sexuality.  Unlike other living organisms, furries are rigidly compartmentalized.
Of course, the perception outside the furry community is pretty much the same way--"soft, furry, cuddly, and capable of consent".  And the imagination pretty much stops right there.

Nope.  Not a bit.  The hate's got nothing to do with sex or outsiders' assumptions about it.  Must be the gratuitous waste of polyester.

Thanks for pointing that out to us.

I don't think they bought the suits specifically for it, especially given the prices those things usually go for, but the pictures are obviously staged, given that even the one in the supposed "pub" have absolutely no bystanders. I imagine the one "working on his car" took an awful lot of care to make sure that floor was clean first as well.

Tried going to a Furry convention once. Didn't make it to the registration table. The fat dude with the "altered" Barney was the final straw.

Fursuits are hot inside. Some have fans inside them. I had to wear one once... let's just say i lost a bet and leave it at that. Some folks get a kick out of cosplaying. To my knowledge, nobody I know has ever worn a fursuit around the house for the hell of it, but it does make for interesting photographs. Not groundbreaking, no, but at least mildly interesting.

Its about the same as those folks that dress up as Klingons, I reckon.

Furries are *still* the designated internet punching bag? My god it's been since 1995...

There's lots of subgroups and interests that the term "furry" covers. The broadest definition is just "fans of anthromporphised animals in various media."  This really ought to be common internet lore by now. It's not all kinky fursuit sex anymore than anime is all naughty tentacle porn. Yeah, I suppose it exists, but it's not really the point.

Also, (pictureofcheetara.jpg): THIS. :) or (greenskinnedalienspacebabe.jpg) THIS. Because a lot of people like exotic people with the right secondary sex characteristics.

/ was an "active" furry fan over a decade ago, not so much since, though

karlandtanya: Also--why is so much hate in furry threads?


People tend to project things they hate about themselves on others.

karlandtanya: moron.


No, you're the moron. There is a very good description of what it means to be furry on TVTropes. It's not about sex. It is for a minority, but not for all.

I suggest you and other, less-enlightened folks read "A Thaumatophile Manifesto":
"Our lives are not so good, not even close to so good, that we can afford to throw away pleasures, should fortune put the opportunity of achieving any into our grasp. There is a gem of bitter wisdom offered up by Silenus to Midas, a gem unearthed by Plutarch and given its most noble setting by Nietzsche in his Birth of Tragedy. It is this: that for human beings the best thing is not to be born at all, and the second best thing is, if one has been born, to die as soon as possible. That life might be more a burden than a benefit, that it might even be a misfortune ever to have come into existence, is too close to the truth as it is, as the philosopher David Benatar has pointed out in a series of not-enough-attended-to arguments. We need to do as well as we can. Let us not be so foolish as to throw away pleasure."

. . .

"When everyone is in some sexual minority or other, it is going to be very hard to make the case to anyone for oppressing sexual minorities. When lots of people get some pleasure out of some kink or another, lots of people will have something to lose from norms and policies that oppress kink. Pleasure wins. Theocrats and moralists and collectivists lose. And no one has to have any knock-down argument, much less have to knock anyone else down. Millian diversity reigns. Everyone has taken their small step toward a better world."

If this doesn't sound like a world you want to live in, then you're part of the problem. And, for the record, this guy's blog is not mine. I've read his stuff, though, and I agree with it wholeheartedly.
