Furries existed long before the internet, they were probably using letters in the mail to yiff before we were born.

The flip side is that itís been a boon to other subcultures. Take the example of a LGBTF teen in rural Mississippi without the internet and the ability to talk to some sympathetic people, for example.

On a less high stakes note itís also improved hobbyist poo poo immensely. The total number of people world wide who really care about old German rifles isnít high in absolute numbers and the internet has made it a LOT easier to get quality info on them and how to spot fakes etc. The 80s by contrast was the wild loving west with some real shitheads passing crap off at gunshows that wouldnít pass muster for half a second today.

I find it really hard to care about what furries do in current year. The vast majority of which are perfectly safe and consensual and form supportive and inclusive communities, and are usually not the minority nazi or pedo sects.

All that's true and we're a long way from 15-20 years ago but lol I'm still making fun of em for being grownass adults wearing animal costumes I mean c'mon that's pretty funny.

I did find it amusing that one of the ICP guys' daughter came out as a furry and he was super supportive so now furries are just allied to juggalos.

When I think of furries with guns, I get mentally flooded with images of weird nazi furries.

Most of the time I really can't be bothered to give a gently caress.

That said, I did have one fairly recent incident (a year or two back) that kind of reminded me of the knee jerk anti furry reaction. I was staying in a hotel with my wife out of town and there was a furry con near by. A couple of them were (literally) prancing around the lobby and just generally being a nuisance and acting like they were entertainers at a theme park. Like, gently caress man, I just wanna get checked in and maybe grab a drink at the bar. Don't do this poo poo right now, take it to the conference room or wherever you're supposed to be.

That is exactly what I've always read or seen on the internet. Hell, there was a video about how Furry Cons can't ever be held in the same place twice because they are such classless assholes to the entire establishment.

I cannot for the life of me remember the documentary about it I watched. But the hotel apparently had full loving diapers left everywhere.

If I was a furry, I wouldn't associate with those people literally making GBS threads in hallways. You know, I can say that applies to any and every group out there. Except for maybe babies. They get a free pass.

A lot of furries are stunted adults who think of themselves as ďchildren at heartĒ and like to demonstrate this by goofing around with kids. Children are drawn to them because the sex suits furries like to wear in public are mistaken for Disney style mascot costumes. Itís all super gross

Furries and Juggaloes coming out in force against Nazis and the like raised them quite a few steps in my books, so yeah I mostly just ignore them. That said they still tend to draw an obnoxious subset and like the Nerd Social Fallacy are far too tolerant of unacceptable behavior.

One of the better public examples of how to do this better/right was with a group of Star Wars cosplayers who apparently were good enough to get paid gigs, but would attend Special Olympics for free as volunteers. Their method was to have the Jedi and stormtroopers be kind of aloof and standoffish, even if kids ran up to them. If a kid was eagerly trying to get a hug or a picture or whatever, they'd turn to the parents with some line like "Patience and balance are the way of the force. Is this youngling ready for training?" This was a troupe that literally had both local and federal police background checks and TB tests done on them and had child caretaker licenses and poo poo, otherwise they wouldn't be allowed at the venue.

It did a couple things:

1. Let the parent say "No" and take their kid away
2. Let the parent play along if the kid was just pumped about Leia and Jedi and Darth Vader and such (plus one of the cosplayers' kids was dressed as an Ewok).
3. If the kid was acting out and avoiding mom/dad rules, it let the parents say they were not yet ready for training, calm the kid(s) down, then let the kid(s) go get pictures or a lightsaber mockfight with the Jedi.

So basically what I'm saying is that there are ways to be fantasy entertainers for kids without just being some weirdo in a fox outfit at a hotel.

Throw down whatever generalizations you want about the furry community, but most of them are single nerds in the IT field and have huge piles of cash money lyin' around to spend on their hobby; I have several artist friends who make high five figure annual bank drawin' weirdly-colored anthropomorphic characters with weirdly-shaped wang-dang-doodles.

I kind of want a ZIP22 but they're also kind of scary. I've talked to three different people who have shot them and every person had it explode on them in a different way. It feels like one of those things I would just immediately regret.
