    (now NOT accidentally posted as a reply to someone else's thread!)

    Does anyone know WHY people tend to hate furries?

    The only thing I can think of would be random sprays. But really, they're so completely ignoreable that can't really be the issue.

    Anyone know why?


    PS: No, I am not a furry, as far as I know, and to be honest, I don't think I'd care. I just have no clue why there's hate towards them. At least racism can be somewhat explained by different cultures/systematic destruction of said cultures/past slavery/etc.

    I'm inclined to think it's because of those hardcore furries that somehow think of themselves as BEING their chosen animal or whatever it is. Thus that is strange enough for people to hate on them, and it spreads out to cover anyone labeling themselves as furry to any extent.

    Lol, I did too.

    Though, to be honest, it something to do with human psychology (damn psycologists). Humans tend to think that people who do things that go against the common "norm" of society are different. And, lets face, what Furries (or is it furries, is Furries a pronoun?) do is odd, some people even think childish. That is with the whole "inner spirit animal" and the flirtatious names (Foxy Roxy, for example). So, why the hate? Because people need someone to pick on, just to make themselves feel better. Though, one could make the arguement, that just accepting people will make you feel just as happy in the end.

    I personally don't hate (F)furries, nor am I one, but when ones try to start saying how its awesome, etc, etc and how they are better than me because of it. Then let the trolling begin.

    P.S: Apparently somewhere in the TF2 Universe there is a Furry's Server (The Furry Pound I believe it is called).

    I don't think people hate furries, the problem is when they involve you in it with sprays, debates or furry porn.

    At a very basic level racism and furry hate are the same in that they're both one group against another.

    As someone who has plenty of internet "friends" who are furries, I don't find them intolerable. But there easily the most vocal and annoying fetish group. They have their own servers. No problem there. They often feature they're favorite furry as their avatar or spray. Okay. Weird. They easily have the most porn sprays. Not okay. So really, like anything else it's just the really annoying ones.

    It's fun to give the furries I do "know" a hard time though.

    There is two types of furries:

    Asshole Furries: Who think they are center of universe and ruin the fun.
    Normal Furries: That are normal people with strange fetish, i have no problem with them.

    Because pretending to be an animal is retarded.
    Not all furries do though. Just the extremely... uh, furry ones.

    Furries are like gay people. It's a perfectly fine thing to engage yourself and your life in - But the moment your start going out of your way to shove your pride in people's faces it gets annoying. People are free to be who they want to be, but if this involves provoking other people because you know they'll respond negatively, you're just an ass.

    In conclusion, regular furries are fine. Attention-whoring furries are not.

    yeah, i hold the same opinion to them as i do to anyone. Religion, sexuality, fetish, football team, whatever.

    "Be Whatever You Want To Be, But Keep it The Fuck Out Of My Face"

    This has a sub-opinion.

    "A Fetish Or Sexual Quirk Is Not Abnormal.
    Devoting A Server To It Is."

    To be honest isn't this like everything else

    e.g

    White-Black
    Furry-Non Furry
    Gay-Straight

    etc

    (Note that i'm not prejudice)

    I mean it's excactly like this foul prejudice world where no person can accept anything different or abnormal. How do we even know what normal is. Maybe humans were ment to have two cocks? Does that make people abnormal?

    Actually having two penises would be quite a significant abnormality for humans.
