What does being a furry mean to you?

26 Aug 2019, 9:39 am
Please ping me to get my attention!

Just asking, because I´m curious, and really don´t have anything else to do. Pardon if a few commas are missing; the keyboard I´m using is rather annoying. You, for whatever reason, need to press it twice to get it to work.

Anyways... I joined the furry community due to the fact that I really, really love animals. I love working with them, drawing them, making stories with them, etc. For me, it´s a way to escape everyday stress and to just enjoy myself. I started drawing furries somewhere in the 6th grade, and I´ve been in it... well, ever since then. *(I am a highschool senior now. Or, I think I am. Everything is messed up this school year.)

I´ve been made fun of for being in the community due to... the unsavory reputation we´ve no doubt all seen at some point; I just choose to ignore that side of the fandom, anyways. You do you, man.

Anyways... Basically just in the furry community as a form of self-expression, and to have fun. That, and I´ve always thought fursuits were really amazing. They take so much time and effort, and are just- amazing to look at. Most of the time, anyways-! But hey, you do you!

AlwaysTired I personally joined the fandom just for the art, and to be able to be around people who love animals like I do, anthropomorphic or not, because since I don't socialize I don't talk to people in real life, and online is a bit easier for me. You can also find much more LGBT content in the furry community, which is nice. All the furries I've met are friendly too, I just feel like it's a safer environment for some reason?

I don't really know what being a furry means to me, I'm just in a community I like, with tons of art, stories, games all centered around animals. I'm not saying it doesn't mean anything to me, I just feel like it's normal for me, loving animals so much, to be a furry?

I really just found the fandom through YouTube scrolling. I saw that there was a bunch of people who liked to draw and dress up as animals, and I thought to myself, "I would like that kind of thing". I think to me, being a furry is loving animals and the things they can represent for others.

I guess that´s a good way to look at it. Having a good time is always a positive thing unless it harms you or others, of course... As long as you´re safe, and having fun, that´s always good. And you´re right; Who cares about the haters?

I´ve met my fair share of friendly and unfriendly individuals in the furry community, but you´re right; it generally is a very welcoming, open minded community. I´d love to see some of your art sometime, if you don´t mind? I don't want to bother you too much, if I do. If I end up bothering you, let me know.

It was the artwork and fursuits that really grabbed my attention. Do you have a suit, or are you planning to get one sometime in the future? I´m hoping to get one at some point, but they´re always really heccin' expensive.

I have a head and hand paws, but not much else. A tail and feet paws are what I'm hoping for later.

That´s pretty cool! Did you make it yourself, or was it a commission? I personally think I´d wanna start with the head.

Another family member made the head, and we found the hand paws at a Halloween store. It was a lucky find, as they matched up with my fursona's coloring.

For me, being a furry means having fun and coming back to the fairy tales I loved as a kid. I've always enjoyed stories that involve talking animals, like Peter Rabbit. The furry fandom feels like a place where I can freely enjoy that again.

I new to the fandom, but I’ve been a fan of human like animals since I was a kid. To me, being a furry helps me express myself and I got into drawing because of it

ever since i can remember, i've wanted to be a spoiled house cat. i've always connected with animals more than humans. never thought i'd end up finding myself as a spider, but i love this part of who i am. i don't consider myself part of any fandom, but i've never really identified as/with humans XD

Hey, nothing wrong with being a spoiled house SPIDER instead of a cat, right? Spiders are cool little critters. I've never found myself connecting well with human characters, either. I get that, 100%.
