My favourite bits:

The chart of common furry identities:

Wolf
Fox
Lion
Tiger
Folf (Fox/Wolf)
Cabbit (Cat/Rabbit)

the picture of the half-naked guy with the fox tail wtf?!?

and as always, the comments:

There's nothing weird about people dressing up as animals, why's it different to any other hobby? When I get my costume on I feel far more comfortable and will often wear my tail at work to help me relax. My colleagues don't seem to mind.

I would also like to add that I have also learnt from my character and incorporated some of his positive aspects into my own personality:clueless:Nothing wrong with this sort of behaviour - as long as they stay off the furniture and don't scratch the wallpaper

Just brilliant all round.

I learnt the turn "fursona" which is such a brilliant pun I almost want to become a furry.

who was our resident expert? SP?

I seem to recall he used to make posts re them in a snarky away that still seemed to give the imrpession he was kind of into the scene

It says a lot about CG that I'd never heard of a fursona but I knew what yiffing was.

Unintentionally outing yourself as a furry to the world?

I have been a furry for many years now, and there are so many aspects of it I love. I have three wolf fur costumes at home, and wear them on a near-daily basis. My fiancee loves me wearing them also, she says it brings out new sides of my personality. I do worry what my friends and workmates will think however.

You didn't know about fursona's?

In the online RPG community, it seems that furries are common.

I blame disney.

I didn't know the word.

I also haven't ventured into the Online RPG community...

I didn't know fursona's either. I knew about furries - never know what they looked like though. That was just a place I never wanted to venture. Like Tub Girl.

For people who go online and pretend to be elves, dwarfs and whatnot kind of fantasy creatures, it's funny to see you guys make fun of other people's fetishes.

there's nothing wrong with gnomes, provided you season them well before dinner

Playing a fantasy game online = nerdy

Buying an embarassingly crap fursuit which you wear in RL and cuddle other similarly attired people in, then hiding this behaviour from your friends, family and co-workers because you know they would think you are a maniac = a bit more nerdy

When i play wow, i don't pretend to be an elf, that's just the electronic blob on the screen. it is as meangful as driving a virtual tank or a virtual forumla 1 car or lara croft or whatever. When these freaks put fur suits on they are having some kind of psycho-sexual awakening/transformation that REALLY MEANS SOMETHING to them.

That said, people's weird sex fantasies are their own business, good luck to them. I applaud everyone who explores their own desires.

However as a rule i do think furries are crap and embarassing.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the fursuit of happiness.
