how do you feel about fur haters?
« on: April 25, 2007, 08:36:41 pm »
on Imvu, someone just imed me randomly, being the polite person I accepted

it was a /b/rotha in all black but w/o a fro and all they did was do all the attack moves while they screamed anonymous memes.

it was really funny

of course all I said was I cause no drama and I raid against Hal, and beat him back with memes, but I just played it Gandhi-style

1.  "Fursecution" is a horrible term invented by whiny furs who think that getting made fun of by losers on the internet is somehow on-par with a hate crime

2.  He may have just targetted you at random, not because you're a fur.

"Fursecution" is just persecution. It was likely misused in this case. Likely Daimajin was only being silly and wasn't in any distress.

I'm going to post some definitions and stuff now anyways.

I think it's safe to say it's not because Daimajin was a fur that he was attacked. I got a lot of attacks myself in the beginning (it stopped later for some reason), and tested out a human alt (but with as much bad references through clothing as my main) and got beat up more often, with the same excuses.

ah yea, alright so I used the word incorrectly.

however

after visiting a few boards /i/'s, turns out this is a joint effort against IMVU furries

u can check on "7" and "420" if you don't believe me.

Well, that's what you get for accepting invites from people you don't know.
I haven't been invited today, but the latest update allows you to see the avatar of the person inviting you now.


However, you should report any abusive behavior.
If they continue on doing what they're doing then they'll quickly
earn the three complaints needed to suspend their account.
well, that's how it works when you report some one's comment or page for TOS violations.

how do you feel about fur haters?

I was online and trying to get some help drawing, because I suck but that's another post entirely, when I found a forum topic on some forum I don't remember the name but some guy said I quote "Beware. -enter name here- gotta be gay to draw Anthros. Simple truth." I find it slightly funny and I am also confrontational towards them. So I was wondering how you all feel about these idiots. If you have mixed feelings vote for each one singularly!

Yah, they're not worth my time.  Everybody in the world will hate some kind of group, so its not ever worth fighting against.

And it's good that it's not worth fighting against, because fighting them tells them we are as bad as they think we are. Instead, "do unto others as you wish them to do unto you" and if someone attacks you, verbally or otherwise, "turn the other cheek to them" (yeah, I'm a fan of Jesus's statements, especially the golden rule).
But I'm somewhat hypocritical as usual, so I'll add "do as I say, not as I do", which I have no idea who said. (Not hypocritical on purpose, just still have anger issues sometimes)

To be honest where I live they're virtually non-existant, except for a couple of friends i'm lucky to know. Most people just don't know what the hell a 'furry' is, yet a lot of them love animals and some even draw anthropomorphism's. If you know how to deal generally with people who do not know what a 'furry' is, you shouldn't find trouble.

Well you don't normally encounter fur haters in real life because they don't dare say anything to your face normally they lurk in forums and such stuffs.In real life its not like you can tell from a glance if somone is a fur. Well unless your in a fursuit or have a tail then yes, you could have problems. especially where I live! There more of an inconvenience than a day to day problem.

I firmly believe in non-violence. So I guess I feel sorry for them. They words and hate must be powered by ignorance, misconceptions and insecurity.

Aerion said "Turn the other cheek to them". That's a thing I always do. I guess there's no exception for furry haters.

so they hate a certain type of people, they can only see differences and not similarities and they are insecure about their own standing in the world, if they feel more secure by being obnoxious then by all means they can do that, but it only makes them secure if theres a reaction.

we need to disprove Einstein! (kinda) (you know, "for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction") (though in this case it's not part of physics)

so yea, biased pre-set views can really hinder one's ability to try to understand others, as well as themselves.

They provide occasional entertainment. I've yet to find a hater that can survive trading insults with me...

Depends what kind of hater. Usually haters are the /b/tards that only know to say "Yiff in Hell!" I find them amusing and bother them at Habbo. There could be offenses that I take more seriously than others, but I've yet to actually find one.

I think they are stupid. I have not found one yet who really makes me mad, so I couldn't really care less what they say.
"Music is life, the rest is details."
"Never complain. 98% of people don't care about your problems, the rest are glad you have them."
"Livin' for booty and grog!"
"I'm right, you're wrong, any questions?"
"Genius by birth. Slacker by choice."
