Top Ten Reasons Not All Furries are Bad People

Swellow
If I see one more "let's euthanize all furries" comment, I swear I'm going to lose it. This is a response to the "Reasons to Hate Furries" list.

The Top Ten

1 Most furries aren't actually nymphomaniacs or bestiality supporters

Why are there so much anti-furries in a pro-furry list anyways? - XxembermasterxX

It really disappoints me that so many people will find any excuse they can to hate on furries. No one ever bothers to actually learn about the fandom, because they think they know everything about them from mass media, like that God-forsaken episode of CSI. (You know the one I'm talking about.) TL;DR version: this is so sad can we punch Jerry Stahl in the gut?

Furries are people who like (as things) anthropomorphic animals. I think anthropomorphic animals are awesome, but I’m not a furry. - PhoenixAura81

I wouldn’t say most... - 3DG20

2 It isn't a fetish

Well it sure ain't choir practice. Obsessions such as this are clear indication that too many people have too little to do, and probably never quite made it past adolescence.

I MEAN COME ON PEOPLE STOP TRYING TO COME OUT AS A FURRY. IT'S A FANDOM, NOT AN ORIENTATION. LIKE FOR REAL YOU DON'T HAVE TO COME OUT ABOUT BEING IN THEFIVE NIGHTS AT FREDDY'S FANDOM, OR THE WARRIORS CATS FANDOM. SO WHY DO YOU HAVE TO COME OUT IN THE FURRY FANDOM.

The policy wasn't violated? You literally just mocked them by saying they don't get past adolescence. I'm sorry no one here is refined and ends up as a businessman and banker in life. - Swellow

"(T)rying to push their lifestyles on other people." What do you think this list is doing? Do you know the meaning of irony?

3 People have the right to be a furry

In Germany it is banned. - XxembermasterxX

And people have the right to be rude and obnoxious human beings, but they still shouldn't

Everyone has the rights if your in America - Izalien

It is legal to be a furry, however, it is very illegal to have sex with an animal. - HardRockSam

Unfortunately in LOTS of places around the world, it is completely legal to have sex with an animal. - BlueberryCatfish

4 Most furries aren't actually into "yiffing"

Most people judge furries because the first thing they see when they type in "furry" onto google is a bunch of E621 bullcrap. They can't find the nice side of the community like the appropriate art.

Was a furry without knowing what it was for years - Rathernotbenamed

What's yiffing? - PhoenixAura81

That is true, for I'm a furry myself and I'm not into this thing you call "Yiffing"

5 It gets tiring bashing furries

Anybody who thinks otherwise of this is just being closed-minded. Please do your research on furries, I cannot stress this enough.

Yeah I despise all people that hate other people just because they're different. - XxembermasterxX

Yeah but it also gets tiring not being able to go anywhere on the internet without their animal porn being shoved down our throats. - 3DG20

No, it's very fun.

6 Anthropomorphic animals aren't a big deal

In some religions it's a sin not hating just pointing it out. - XxembermasterxX

Agreed.

Yea its not even hurting anyone.

I think anthropomorphic animals are AWESOME! - PhoenixAura81

7 Most furries don't obsess over fur suits

Fur suits seem pretty interesting and a lot of the fursonas portrayed through fur suits are very creative, but won’t people get very hot in them? I gotta say, people that wear fur suits are very heat-resistant people. - PhoenixAura81

Some prefer drawing, and some prefer painting to cosplaying. - Swellow

8 Most furries are falsely stereotyped

Yeah I have a friend who is a furry who likes to draw them, she is not like what most people think furries are like! - XYZeed

My friends bash furries all the time and I think what they say about them aren’t true. They say that furries are all about sex and nothing else. Real furries aren’t like that. Real furries are people who like anthropomorphic animals and they depict it by drawing (I want to learn to draw anthro characters), fursuits/cosplaying, etc. - PhoenixAura81

9 Furries have existed for a long time, even before the movement

So? - 3DG20

Ancient Egypt, ya know with Anubis

Uh...which movement, and when?

Since when? - LordDovahkiin

10 Pushing them into suicide makes the situation worse

True. I don't see how making someone with particular tastes kill themselves improves the situation.

No one pushes you to suicide. Killing yourself is your choice (even though it's wrong), and your choice alone. - LordDovahkiin

The Contenders

11 They go to hospitals and make children happy and raise money for charity

At most if not all conventions they donate money to charity.

Not all of them do. - 3DG20

12 Furries donate to charity for kids with cancer, autism, and abused animal shelters

This happens a bunch actually. At most furry conventions they donate money to charity. Anthrocon's donated $350,000 over the years.

Again, not all of them do. - 3DG20

13 Furries are funny
14 Furries can have unique art styles

True - XxembermasterxX

15 Most of them are kids
16 The community is one of the most accepting and supporting ones out there

It’s amazing how nice the people in this fandom are - thunderstar1124
