Welcome to the secret world of furries - people who enjoy wearing animal costumes in their adult life.
hmm well. . dat nose poking at the end. x3 heck to my self looks like they are just having fun. . my mom being 53 loves parties and loves the ideas of my 'fursonas' or 'characters'. . heck its just for fun and meeting some like minded people. But really people always want to defend what they think and know. . .then the others defend what they think and know. . .then if the two are different in anyway they lash out. . but eh not like anyone is dying from something like this. . . p.s. Looks like they had fun messing with the crew like I know they did . . some how I just know they messed with the camera guy.
if someone thinks they are a fictional cartoon animal, or wants to have sex with an animal, cartoon or otherwise, they need to seek psychiatric help immediately. And don't delude yourself by saying the furry fandom isn't about fetishes. It is. You even see in the video the type of furry "art" that plagues websites like deviantart. Take a scantily-clad woman, paste an animal head on her body, giver her paws (sexy right?) and bam you have furry "art'. Just absolutely amazing that these people don't understand how mentally unstable they look and act because of this "hobby". Ten years ago these people would be in a padded room.
The factual information that was presented in the clip, from the upcoming episode of Taboo, concerns me. Towards the beginning of the clip, the narrator makes the statement that furry fandom is made up of people who believe that they are part human, part animal. Later on, the narrator says that research suggests that up to eighty-five percent of furry fandom believe that on some level that they are non-human. I would love to know where they got that data from, but I doubt that information will ever be made public to viewers.
I have seen a lot of negativity, within the furry fandom, towards people who take the view that they are not human, or that they are not fully animal. A lot of furries believe those people to be role players who have taken it too seriously, delusional, mentally unstable, sick in the head, stupid, etc. I know what I am saying is based off personal experience, rather than research, but I have gotten that a part of the furry fandom is really not that fond of people who identify as non-human.
The people who do believe that they are non-human would be considered otherkins and therians, which are two communities that are COMPLETELY SEPARATE from the furry fandom. People who consider themselves to be otherkin or therian often believe that in a past life they were non-human. There are some furries who do identify as therian or otherkin, and there are some therians and otherkin who are in the furry fandom.
It would also be nice for a documentary to touch on the fact that not all furries have an interest in wearing fursuits, ears, tails, etc. There are even some furries who do not have a fursona.
While it would be nice to believe that this documentary, when it airs, will be based off facts, but that is not something I can believe. I just view this as another documentary on furries that only exists to shock potential viewers without really caring about how it may affect the furry fandom or how it may mislead viewers.
@Zark Teltrasky im sorry you feel that way man, im 18 an im a furry wolf. no I don't do it for the sex. people are allowed to wear whatever stands out in there personality, teachers wear uniforms, strippers wear light skimpy outfits x3 just making examples, furries should be allowed to express themselves as well. im getting sick an tired of furry haters, its you people that make me scared to wear my fursona.
@Zark Teltrasky dude look im a furry and 13, yes there is some art that is "adult" and I hate it there are some screwed up people out there but not many, and the artists are the same people , I don't dress up in a suit I have a tail and ears , but don't wear it in public, but furries aren't all sex crazed people who think they are animals!!!!!!! and you know what you are just spreading a stereotype! even kids are furries furries can be all ages
@Peppermint Fox yeah I agree too
@Peppermint Fox people are shocked by your "fandom" not because the way the facts aren't presented truthfully. Its because even when all the facts are presented to your liking, at the end of the day it's not exactly socially acceptable to be obsessed with fictional anthropomorphic cartoon animals. If everyone walking down the street was wearing a sweaty animal costume because they are too insecure to be an adult and show their face I don't think we would accomplish much do you?
@Peppermint Fox I totally agree with you.
