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

Funny enough I wouldn't want to show my mum a fursuit if I got one, yet I do this on my facebook, as well as my mum loves furry art herself.

I wouldn't really go out of my way to keep it a secret or anything, I do enjoy a lot the furry fandom creates in general (art, stories, and all of the various mediums), but I haven't... really fully developed a fursona. It's more me being indecisive and, lately, focusing attention to other projects un-connected with the fandom; either way, though, it's not something I voluntarily, freely talk about. I guess part of it is how people automatically think about fursonas/this fandom in a negative light, but I mean, if I'm asked or the subject comes up I'll not shy away from talking about it.

There also aren't too many people around here who seem to share this interest, so there's that too.

I have some friends I talk to about my 'sona, and furry stuff in general, but it's hardly common knowledge that I'm a fur.

I keep it quite I have only told my closest friends and one of them knowing what I am was really happy and said it was cool I brought up the steryotype and she got just as mad as I am, and trust me you don't like me when im mad cause I don't get really violent in a loud way, but it's the kind of quite unstable rage that radiates and cause people to step back like you where a misfired bomb that could any moment if you know what I meen

Yes I keep fursona private. This is for professional reasons and that of the evil media who have in the past harassed my family and I.

For the most part, yes I do keep it to myself. My Skype icon is the same as the one I have here and I have a few RL friends on Skype. None of them have questioned me about it. Otherwise, he only stays within the files of my computer or on FurAffinity.

I have no real "Shame" or embarrassment about my identity- I just don't tell everyone right away I'm a furry, I just let them find out themselves through my drawings, my tail, etc. There isn't always a reason to tell the whole world about it, it's just a part of who I am, although I am proud of it. I don't really "express" my furry-side to my family, they're not really interested in it, but they don't see the stereotype, so that's good. They don't "get" me :P

There are other parts of myself that I keep 100% private or only with my siblings (much more understanding than parents). I'm also a little fur :3 That part is more embarrassing, and not even my siblings know, but it is what it is. People judge, so it's nice to see like minded people online, at least

Only time I let someone know about my fursona is if they're a legit member of the fandom or just casually tolerable to it. Most of the time I just let them find out through my drawings.
I've left (again), probably for good but idk. If you wanna talk to me outside the forum, feel free to email me. Just tell me who you are in the email pls

I see it just like talking about being bisexual; it depends on the person. If someone's genuinely curious, I have no problem talking about it, but if the person is being an arse, I'll tell them to eff off. I don't keep it completely secret that I'm a furry, so people asking me about Jaden isn't that big of a deal unless they're being rude.

I keep quiet about it, partially because i live in a small town and everybody would know within a day of me telling somebody... The other reason is because I think my dad is an anti-fur... Not sure though
any new friends are welcome.

I wear a bit of furry stuff in an attempt to come out about it, but nobody's really caught on to it yet.

My friends are all weird and there's this 50/50 chance of them being a furry or not, most of the time it's the bad 50% but there was this one girl I liked who after she moved finally told me she was a fur so I was like.... "DDDDDAAAAANNNGGGIIITTTTT" yeah, I'm closed about my "furryness" except to other furs..  Even though it's kinda obvious when every day I have a wolf necklace on and a wolf shirt and when I log onto my PC it has an anthro icon

My PC has furry stuff all over it too, including desktop images. Pretty obvious tip-off there.

I have to RL friend groups: the weird people, and the huge gigantic nerds. The wierd people are more accepting, I openly draw and talk about that stuff, when they ask. With the nerds... well, we're talking guys who spend lots of time on 4chan. They're really nice, but once they asked if I had a furry OC. I said yeah and got the reply "Rep -20".
Dear all,
I am no longer active on this site and would ask that none of you send friend requests/chat invites/etc. to whatever account of mine you may find. Thank you.

I'm actually becoming more open about my furryliciousness~ :P

Well, I have this one friend who "introduced" me to the fandom. (I already knew about it, but I just thought they were sick freaks who just had animal sex ^^;) and, day by day, he's pretty much been opening me up more and more. ^^

So, yeah, I'm quite open, but I will never be family/parents open xD
I am back, and I'm a new species entirely! :o
