Honestly none of family has a clue what a furry is except for my two sisters and I, but as far as know, my sisters portray the Furry Fandom for the stereotypes.

My dad finally knows...I seems ok with it just like my mum but they both think it's pretty weird. He found out like 10 mins ago when my mum told him about what I am planning to do for manchester comic con 2016 in july (which is to make a partial fursuit)
Hopefully my dad is fine with it in the long run... After all... It's only been 10 or so minutes so far :fox-:P:

My parents both hate the furry fandom, because they think it's all a bunch of perverts who pee in public bushes, so I'm probably just never going to tell them. I've tried telling them it's not usually a sexual thing and all, but they didn't listen

I think you are overreacting a bit... Your parents can't just burn you... and the analogy is strange a bit

Same, sometimes it doesn't matter how much you explain something, some people will just never be able to understand.

my dad, aunt, and grammy know. my dad was so into finding out about it and learning what it was his first reaction was to say, " Hey you should be a fursuit maker. they make money when they get to certain point and will be good experience!"

My mum knows. The fandom is mostly just a hobby for me so I don't really care if she knows. I've even shown her a couple of my Marci badges. She thinks it's interesting and fun, but she finds anthros to be a little odd. She much prefers to feral pictures I've shown her. I've tried to tell her than the bipeds are no different than characters from Loony Tunes and other shows. x)

I'm not really close enough to my dad to bring up furries in casual conversation. Not sure what he would think of it and I don't really have any interest in telling him about it, anyway.

Honestly, I told my mom I was ordering a mascot costume (fursuit), and she just looked  at me and said:
Are you one of those "furries"?
So I said yeah, after a minute and now she doesn't really care. But doesn't like me spending $800 on a partial.

I told my dad, he has not yet told my mother.  And he seems to be a little cautious about it (he was exposed to the stereotypes), but I think he understands it.  However the topic is still awkward to bring up.  Omg I need help with this, I been working at making it better though.

I dropped a hint that I was furry.
I told my parents at dinner one night that I would like to go to Anthrocon because how close we are to the con. My father asked what it was and I explained the aspects of the fandom and how it can be an opportunity for me coming out and not being shy and how it's filled with musicians, artists, poets, dancers and much more. He thought it was cool and told me he would think about it! My mother didn't say much, though. My two brothers looked at me and one of them said, and I quote, "I used to be one of you guys.."

My mom's known since I was in about 6th grade, she's way supportive. She knew about the adult side of the fandom and everything but still she didn't mind. She actually takes me to TFF and even wants me to make her a fursona and start suiting and everything! My furriness has rubbed off on her so much haha

My parents have absolutely no idea that I'm a furry and I don't even think they know what a furry is. I really don't know how they'd react, but judging from what I know about their personalities, they wouldn't be very happy with it. They'd more than likely claim it's ridiculous wanting to be an anthropomorphic animal. I don't think I'll ever tell them just so I can make sure I don't have to hear their opinion on it.

My mom honestly doesn't care what I do as long It's not something to get me in trouble or hurt. Yeah, she thinks it's extremely weird, but I somehow convinced her to take me to a con in my home town for my birthday week!  I just hope she'll allow me to make my suit sometime this year.

I explained to my mom the idea of fursonas and she says, "let me guess, you're a cat!"

...She guessed correctly x3
