Your experiences with Furry related clichés
« on: 22.04.2008, 16:37:07 »

Heya fellow Furrs ,
I think we all heard a lot of Furry related preconceptions and clichés ... so I wanted to start a new discussion about it. Did you make experiences with it and if yes , what kind of. There surely happened a lot of funny but also some sad and upsetting things , so if you're in the mood to , tell your story or just vote.
Best wishes , BWF

Actually I haven't. I haven't been in the fandom that long yet, but EF13 and all the furs involved met my expectations quite well. Hmm, cuddles... So no, no bad experiences yet.

Well, what exactly are furry related clichés for you? An explanation would help some.

Well ... just normal things in the fandom ... hugging and stuff.
Or how other people think about the fandom ... heard that some people think that most of the fandom is gay or something like that.... well that's more like a preconception but I would really want to know if someone made experiences with that.

Well I did notice on Youtube that a lot of people hate furries. I've seen plenty of videos that have the comments "Yiff in hell furfags!" all over them. Some of those actually believe us furs have... sex with animals... WTF?

The post, "Yiff in Hell, Furfags!", has never been taken too seriously by anyone I know.  In fact it has gone from being a lame attempt at trolling to a comic rallying cry of the fandom.

In a film, series and comics convention, a fellow fursuiters and me where getting a signature from the actor Bruce Campbell, who had much fun with my friend's Wolf fursuit, making fake "biting" pictures...

So we were in the process to get those pics signed by Bruce when Robert Englund, (who was sitting next to him) said aloud "So, Bruce Campbell has furry fans? What does that tell us about Bruce?" and he added loudly "That he likes taking it up the ass???"

We were sooo embarassed... luckily i was in my suit, so they couldn't see me blush..

Cliché, you said?


(what is funny is that we are two heterosexual furries..:) )

My experiences have been mainly online, with the exception of Eurofurence and the only other furry I've found locally! :D

My negative experiences have been caused exclusively by fake furries, including clowns and wannabe clowns.  The clowns were the worst because they expected the furry fandom to resemble "the magical kingdom"... :o

With the more real furries, e.g. lifestyles, weres, and even toons who were truly bonded with animals, I had nothing worse than a few insignificant arguments.  Animals know how to make relationships! ;D

Fags watch soap operas, such as CSI, and get the illusion that they are real situations!! :P

At least furfags still makes us furries, whereas they are just fags... ;D

Cookie - to that fool, I'd have responded with something like this:

"You take the dumb box too literally". ;D

Robert Englund? Isn't he that Freddy guy from Nightmare on Elmstreet 1 - I don't know how many?

Yeppies, the very same! Freddy Krueger himself!

Apparently, he strongly dislikes furries...

Had his pic taken with us (as we won the contest anyway, thanks to Mr Warwick "Willow" Davies defending us - he knows what it is to be covered in fur!...), though !

Look!
