Yes, because furries are so much more popular in 2013 than 2012.  Trends exist, in defiance of subby's super-hipsterism.

I think what's ment here is that, although not widely known, the fox video has brought the furries a new age or furriness. Now they can really bang each other.

Hmm I wonder if there's another explanation... Like some sort of event that's coming up that people typically dress up for... Nah that doesn't sound right, I'm sure it's some video no one has heard of.

You get a lot less weird looks if you tell people you're buying your fursuit for a Halloween party.

You mean that song actually exists?  The one that sounds like it was composed on a Speak-n-Spell?  Oh god I thought that was just part of a fever dream I had a few weeks ago.

I do not understand the furry hate.

I know it is a lot to ask, but could somebody explain it in a reasonable, logical, coherent fashion while being objective and keeping perspective? It is mild human deviancy at best.

Now, mimes I understand. Violations of the uncanny valley and all that. Ick!

I have to ask...  Is that a real band?  I mean, like a group that's primary about music and not a "fake band" of comedians like Lonely Island?

It all started back in the early 00's, with a website called 4chan...

The problem comes down to furries being way to willing to over-share about their fetishes, which lead people to laugh at them, which caused them to be defensive, which caused more people to laugh at them. etc.

/Or was it some other site. It was oh so long ago.

I meant the ones that dress up like barnyard animals and then rub and grind on each other at comic book conventions and what not.

Twelve new conventions in the USA alone opened for the first time this year. FA memberships jumped half a million, MUCK memberships are steadily rising, and I'm seeing tons more people starting to wear tails and identify as furries.

Perhaps you should step outside of your house and look around, sometime.

Disdain of furries predates September. By a longshot.

As for why... Because peoplelike to poke things that get a response, and even furs facepalm at outrught cries of fursecution.

I could go into even further detail (i do a hisorical and sociological informal study on the fandom) but im on my phone on the bus to work, and i type like you think an otter would.

Badly.

I think a lot of the furry hate comes really comes from media portrayal. The popular thing is to point that that one CSI episode. But the media does take the most outrageous aspects and blow them out of proportion. According to the average joe, furries are people who dress up in mascot costumes and have sex parties, because that's all the media talks about.

But in truth, anyone who just enjoys anthropomorphic animals usually identifies as a furry. Out of the people who DO identify as furry less than 20% actually own a fursuit. And since those suits usually cost multiple thousands of dollars to get, almost all fursuit owners will scoff at the idea of having sex in them. To them, it's just another form of cosplay, only instead of an established character like from Homestuck or an anime or comic book, it's usually a personal character that they designed themselves and they truly identify with.

It's like an act, you play a role that goes out and just has fun meeting people. A lot of fursiuters will also so charity events and such. Speaking of which, furries are some of the biggest charity givers through the various conventions set up throughout the country.

Of course another thing people point out is furry porn. To deny it exists is to deny human sexuality. Humans are sexual creatures so naturally the topic of sex tends to creep into ANY fandom. If you don't like it, that's cool. If you do like it, that's cool too.

Anyway, I digress, maybe people just dislike furries for the weird unchanging faces on some of the fursuits. That can be unsettling sometimes =3.

Indeed. I worry about the lack of cultural diffusion though. Hardly any continuety.

I come from before web2.0 features though.

Same reason for brony hate IMO. It's the infantile element of each that I think ends up being repulsive.

I find furry folk slightly unnerving, but it isn't really the people I do not think. More of an animal uncanny valley I think. Certain things should look a certain way. Hit a certain level of deviation in how they look, human or otherwise, and I get the heeby jeebies. I suspect that I am extremely sensitive to the uncanny valley effect.

Oh. And clowns. Clowns are almost as bad as mimes.

I've sort of known a couple of furry folk online. They were all exceptionally decent people.

I don't think it's "hate" so much as a general shunning of people viewed as unhealthy by the herd. Your average brony/furry doesn't seem like a healthy person, independent of their love for pony cartoons and/or dressing up like a rabbit.

So, what qualifies them as unhealthy?

Speaking for my self, I like a certain show about diminutive magical pastel equines. It was like visual Prozac for me during the worst moments of my life as I slowly convalesced from my accident. I have nothing to do with the rest of the fandom, just an appreciation for the show. I fail to understand how it is seen as unhealthy. Obsession and mania on the other hand, I get that. But surely, not everybody who appreciates a bit of dress up or pastel pony has to indulge in the questionable (if any) aspects of their peer group.

Personally I see them as the precursers for us bonking Aliens - we are going to have to give up all our predudices if we wish to play that game.  Good em, dress up rocks and dress up sex is in its own stratasphere.
