My fursona was specifically made as a way to represent myself on the internet. It's really nessecary to tell people that I have one because it's so out of context of every conversation and when it's completely in context I don't really feel the need to explain it at all. Although I have told one of my school friends about my fursona and he was pretty interested in it, especially the emotional connection I have to my fursona.

All in all, Ganther allows me to navigate the internet and he's not really needed anywhere else. At the moment.

Well, as an update, my closest friends at least know. It's still not like I hide it, just not very loud about it. Even got a couple to make their own fursonas.

I have a few names i go by. Ichigan, Gamma, and Salem. Ichigan is my leader persona. Gamma is my family persona. And Salem.. He is my fursona. I'm outward about that part of me. My sister got me into the fandom about 1 and a half years ago and i wear wolf-like fangs and i naturally have a wolfish grin and a dominant attitude. I cant say that i display Salem in public because salem is more of a depiction of a portion of myself. He is the brutal and twisted part of me and people who know me know of Salem, but under a different name. When i fight people, i black out and it feels like looking through someone else's eyes. That, i feel, is salem.

Well, i dont tell everyone, but dont hide it either.  Its kinda like "if you ask me about it ill tell you" sort of a thing.  I dont see my fursona as something everyone needs to know about, i also dont see it as something to keep hidden.

If a situation comes up that makes me think of him I mention him. All of the people I talk to on a regular basis know I'm a furry, and they know about my fursona.

Well I don't really go out of my way to tell someone about my fursona, but my friends know about him since they've seen my drawings and stories. Also some people at school have seen me drawing him in class before, I just say that he's just an otter version of me (which is true) :P

Arti Love is pretty much my second identity in life.  All of my user names is Arti Love, Super Arti Love, Arti With Love, Soooo much love I tell you!  People ask me what Arti is, and I tell them.
Remember that smile, the one you wore with such beauty and grace?  Where has it gone?  What has happened to put you in this miserable, lonely place?  Smile for me, even it may be the last time I see.  A picture I will take not for myself, no. A picture for the entire world to embrace the happiness you once shared with me.  Just smile...

I don't care if my friends know if I'm Alsend Drake, but I don't let too many. I like to write little blurbs on desks as Alsend. I even wrote a note to a dumb student who was doing the conducting in band, warning her she was makeing the class- and me- mad by only doing what her friends requested.

My policy is that if asked, I'll tell someone I'm furry. I'm not open about my fursona, but that might change in the future. I am planning on getting a deer tail, and I might wear it to school one day because it's smaller and more discreet than a fox or wolf tail.

owo I don't really say much about it.
If people ask, I tell them.

I don't hide it or anything. If someone asks who is a furry, I'll describe it in however much detail they're looking for.

I'm very open to most people about my relationship with the Fandom, and I don't see why it should be otherwise being honest. And whenever I mention TJ to people, most of them are inclined to agree about my choice of species!

"What's a fursona?" That's what 99% of the people around me would say to the idea. Never had the need to hide it, never been asked about it, and I don't run around screaming that what my fursona is  :fox-:P:

So yes, I keep it to myself  :fox-:):

My mom is really the only person who knows about Vishet. Only because she's seen the art I've done and I talk about it when I'm feeling uncertain about Vish's looks. Other than that I usually keep her hidden.

Like I said in Skype, that's ballsy cam, I Salute ya. I might do something like this but only as my cover photo. As of now my parents don't really know I'm a furry, but they'll find out once my partial gets home in the mail XDD
