general What's your opinion on Furries?

My opinion is complicated and mixed.

I can honestly respect someone who is a furry who is sensible and mature. Obviously, the fandom has a dark side and I can not respect a furry who indulges that stuff. If the world was perfect I would have no problem with the fandom, but I do confess the furries don't have any problems that the Bronies don't also have.

Some of the furries I know do not seem to feel comfortable in their own bodies, or have a childish psyche or some other deep rooted complex contributing to their "furriness". Funnily enough, there is a commonality between the body types and personalities of most furries I've known.
They are nice people, very sensitive, too much perhaps. But I don't like the idea at all. In some special circumstances, it is like with those obese girls who believe they are fairies or elves. It is so funny. And I can see the weak point exposed like a pulsating vein ready to bleed... but I restrain myself. Still, I am surprised by how much people can bluff when they have been given a crappy hand for a self in life.

I don’t have any problem with it. If someone wants to dress up in a fursuit, go for it. It’s just another interest group that isn’t all that far from loving ponies or cartoons. People could make fun of me for enjoying talking ponies or thinking cartoon characters are cute and attractive, but I don’t think it’s weird or anything. Dressing up in a fursuit would be just as harmless. If you looked inside everyone’s head and saw what they were truly into, I’m sure everyone would be required to sequester themselves for the greater good of humanity. But let’s face it, furism seems pretty harmless. I don’t see any reason to have issue with it. It might get kinda hot in one of those costumes, but if they like it, rock on.

That's so cool, Dreamy. :rarity:

Been considering myself one for about 6 years now. Quite a lot of lovely people in this fandom, and I've met my closest friends in it. Hell, I most likely wouldn't be in the position I am in now if I hadn't met those people.

That said, the fandom have negative sides/aspects of it and denying those only make things worse.
