And fall into an obvious harassment trap? Sorry kid, I know the tale of the boy who cried Yiff.
I know better than to follow a dirty furr-monkey into its den. Horrible, nasty things happen in there. Which reminds me, you piddle in the TOILET, not the corner, dammit. And stop drinking out of those damn things!
You talk like you are an authority, why is that? A lot of 'we' and 'us' being thrown around. If you don't want people making mass assumptions in one direction, why should anyone listen to your mass assertions in the opposite? You're working with the opposite side of the same coin.
All I've seen of this 'furry' spree is an escapist mentality driven by common human social urges. Don't fit in with the rest of the world? Hop in a suit and pretend that you're something else. Keep digging until you find that social niche. Do I hate people for it? No. Everyone's doing it these days, because they can. I wonder how much the internet has to do with the ability for things like this to rise out of the dust. It's easy to hide behind a monitor until you know that it's safe to come out of the basement. Were these trends even existant 50 years ago? 20 years ago? I very much doubt it.
Makes sense why you think I stated a falsehood instead of simple hyperbole, then.
Kid. You are saying 'we' and 'us' in your OP. You are grouping yourself in with all other 'furries' and making claims on their behalf. So you are making assumptions for a lot of furries, and then telling everyone on here to not make assumptions about furries. It's silly.
...No, you're not an anthropomorphic wolf thing. You just really, really, really want to be. You're human.
If I was a furry and I was so compelled to wear one of those fursuits (and I most certainly am not a furry nor would I ever be compelled to wear a fursuit even if I was a furry), I would rather do it privately as I would prefer not to make a public fool of myself while pretending it's going to be socially acceptable one day to wear a mascot uniform in WalMart or some shit.
Out of all the fursuit videos, they were being swarmed with people who wanted to take pictures, and meet them... just sounds a tiny bit different from what you're saying. Did you look at the video in the link?
No, I wasn't interested in your pro-fursuit propaganda video, but I guess I'll watch it now.
In a video that strictly portrays the reactions to fursuits in a positive light that only seems to be coming from children, don't you think that's going to be dramatically different to say, walking into WalMart, getting a shopping cart and walking around buying shit? Or just walking down the street in the fursuit?
Don't let wanting to be a super speshul "weird and different" anthropomorphic animal make you stay in this socially awkward teenage phase and turn you into a future social outcast where it might really affect you.
Those sick videos also play on the ignorance of children to the point where it's even creepier than it should be.
If the kids (and parents) were properly educated about what the furries do with (and IN) those fuck-suits, would they really be as happy and positive? So there you have it: the furries have to resort to deception in order to appear "friendly".
I'm pretty sure you don't want me linking you to every furry video to prove myself. But yes, that one was only of kids, but among others, there were also adults (alone) who wanted pictures, adults with their parents / friends, etc. But it's not about pictures.
And please excuse whenever I've use "We" or "Us" in my past posts.
I won't be socially awkward, trust me. I will still do what I like, but I will learn. Again, I'm only 16.
So your objective reason for being a furry is demographic popularity? As a side note, those 'people swarming' were kids and their parents. Why? Because they believe that the people were simply entertainers with the goal of making the children smile. Nothing more, nothing less. It has nothing to do with people embracing the 'furry culture' or anything like that. Children like animals.
No, I just state that a lot, sorry. I mean, yes, it's going to happen, but it's a nice thing to make people smile. And yes, that video was only with kids, but among all other videos, a lot of adults alone too, like IHOP Workers, or phone stand workers in a mall, wanted pictures.
I'm not for demographic popularity though. My main priorities are going to be going to a few Furcons in my life, and hanging out with my friends.
