More on the furry front

I haven't blogged about Furries in a while, so when a comment on a previous furry post, I felt inclined to talk more about Furries. I am fascinated. I may make Army of Dad raise an eyebrow at the fascination, but it is interesting to me.

Ekiofox had this to say:
As a furry my self and a sex fiend, i personally love yiff. the stories are not really much different than say penthouse and the art is always fun. I am not a fursuiter and though i have at times worn a pair of ears and a tail, I don't think I could handle bieng in a mascots uniform. If they make them more form fitting like clothes then mabye I could but to yiff in them would be gross to me. think of all the time you'd have to spend cleaning that thing. And as far as them bieng anatomically correct i can see that since Zeta creations makes anatomically correct animal parts. well just thought i'd put in my two cents. thanks for listening.

So, I found this Furry 101 for everybody. What is going to be amusing is if I find myself taking on some animal personality and get into the Furry scene. Hee hee. Any local Furry clubs out there? There has to be one or two in the greater Metroplex. There is a fetish for everything, I think.

Hmm, Hobbit love club, anyone? I will be the president.

    Did we determine that yiffing was having sex?

    *looks confused*

    I honestly find this quite disturbing. If you ever stumble across one of their forums (thanks to the guys at Something Awful for doing the hard work) it's enlightening -- in a scary way.

    I mean, each to their own, but Mascot sex ... yeeesh.

    This whole furry thing really weirds me out... Cullen is right "to each their own" but I still find it weird as hell.

    Although the furry CSI was on the other day, and I thought of you and the old furry post. How weird....

    I hate to admit this, I do stand by my "to each their own", but when I read the link -- I laughed out loud. I mean it was really, really funny to me.

    And just in case there was any doubt....yes, yiffing means exactly what you said it does, Kat.

    Lmao... that link had some pretty funny comments. Personally, I consider myself a furry, but I only enjoy the aesthic taste expressed in furry art. Dressing up in a suit for sex is rather obsessive behavior, and I agree with what you said about the plushie crap... that is just wrong. I don't think you should worry about furs being offended by what you say, you obviously keep your mind open to every perception, and anyways, most furries are petty and as I mentioned before, obsessive.

    First off, being a furry aka anthronomorphic fan isn't about sex or yiffing. It's about holding a lifestyle in the light of being both human and animal. I find it rude and uncalled for to call us weird, freaks, etc. It's not a obsession either, it's a lifestyle. Just like everyone else, we eat and sleep and go to work just the same. We call sex yiffing because that's the sound an animal makes during sex, just so you know. Thanks for having this post, but please get more info before making comments about it. Try looking on websites like www.furnation.com for better info.

    Sincerely: Dane: The Great Dane Furry.

    Dane, I'm wondering if you were directing your comment to me (Army of Mom) or the commenters here. I don't try to proclaim any knowledge of furries. I don't recall calling them weird, etc. and I'm just a wee bit interested in the phenomena and want to learn more about it, but have too much on my plate right now to go exploring and researching right now. Just makes you sound sort of self-righteous when I didn't say anything offensive toward furries.

    I'm a furry. and i take great offense to your comments about it being a "sick and wierd" thing. It's not mascot sex....sure some ppl decide to take it that far, but most of us don't do that. People enjoy porn, gay, straight, lesbian, "other"...why don't you get pissed off at them for that? EWWWW porn! people having sex EWWWW. Well if you want to classify yiffy as furry sex, think of it this way. Animals having sex (sounds like a discovery channel special). Fox and Rabbit doing it? CROSSBREEDING.
    I hope this poem from Tigerden.com clears things up a little more.


    If the true meaning of furry you wish to understand
    You must think in terms of paw and not hand
    You must release your mentality from society's cage
    For furry prefurs no race, sex, persuasion or age

    You must sort through the hype and the exploitation
    Because to be furry needs no justification
    It is to reach out and embrace the unknown
    To be surrounded by friends and yet still be alone

    It is not a gimmick or a political movement
    It's nothing so pretentious as a method of improvement
    It's only to seek solace in the presence of friends
    For when one is furry, the search never ends

    It is sometimes to be controlled by one's emotions
    It is to often be unsure of depths of devotion
    It is the sweet pain of impossible dreams
    It is never quite as close or as far as it seems

    It is feelings being known without words being spoken
    It is the inevitable occasional heart being broken
    It is the type of love that now seems cliche
    It's experience gained from having learned the hard way

    It's a smurgle, a fuzzle, a rumble or purr
    It's scales and whiskers and tails and fur
    It's what we are, not outside but within
    It's the binding force that makes us all kin

    It's a howl in greeting to friends held dear
    It's a bristling growl when confronted by fear
    It's a friendly lick or scritch to show that we care
    It's a deep understanding, a compassion that's rare

    If what it is to be furry you still don't comprehend
    Then consider this advice, my curious friend
    If you're willing to respect that which you don't understand
    Then come take my paw and I'll take your hand.


    and so if you want to call us wierd, f***ed up freaks, then take a look at those that watch "regular human porn". EWWWW disgusting perverts!

    Anon - I wish you and others would direct your comments at someone in particular in the thread here because it sounds like you're directing it at me and I never said anything about it being weird, etc. I am fascinated by it all.

    Oi vey, fursona's as they're called don't always involve yiffing, christ this is annoying when people think that's all about. It's all fantasy, as is all roleplay. If people wanna sex their characters up all the time that's fine. Hell you can have a good Furry story without ever having sex, really it's all about having fun and enjoying what you do. No reason to bag on anyone about anything. By the way if I see another damned furry rp petition against it i'm going to beat someone, it's bloody roleplaying it doesn't mean anyones going to start trying to be sexually active with their animals!
