They are just morons that have nothing better to do than poke fun at something they don't understand. Fursonally I don't really care what they have to say because it doesn't really matter.

By the way Daimajin, it was Sir Isaac Newton who stated "for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction." not Einstein. :fox-:P:

The fur haters I have found all are usually racist/homophobic/ignorant people who tend to hate a lot of things because of their less than ideal upbringing.

 I left a group of friends once because they were racist against Asians (They were Mexican themselves), misogynistic, homo and biphobic.

Usually people like that are just ignorant and don't know S*** about anything intellectual...also usually score as sensors and/or strong perceivers on the MBTI.

I don't waste my time with the ignorant...I just leave and move on.

But MLK said it best when he talked about how blacks were stupid to embrace violence when they were only 10% of the population...we could not fight a war of violence against them and win due to the difference in numbers. What are furs, like 0.014 % of the world population?

They just annoy me.

In a world of around 6,602,224,175 people 0.014% would be 924,311.3845 people.
Does that sound right?

*Wonders just how many furs there really are...

If you take the number of pounced.org personals....then divide the estimated world population according the to the CIA world fact book, you get 0.000052%


I calculated the old number a long time ago using I think the IFPL numbers...this is probbably why I have to retake a semester of math...

Sorry for the mistake.

If you take the number of members in gay411.com, it means they are not more than 0,008% of the population that is gay!!

You can't compare the furry population with the one that are on pounced... In fact, a "one million worldwide" would be far more believable (IMO, kind of too low). I'd personnaly say it would more be something of the scale of 0,1% - 1%.
If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate...

Hey, did you know if you say "Orange" really slowly it sounds like gullible?

1% no way 0.1% tops

We don't care, we just do.

1% might not be too much if you think of it... count in that every fur that never said it to anybody else and that are not on the internet, I'm sure they are some. But I must agree, 0,1% seems better. However, I was talking something to scale it, not the exact one, and we can only guess it. It's definitely more than one in one million...

They provide occasional entertainment. I've yet to find a hater that can survive trading insults with me...
LOL I agree, they do amuse. because most of the time their arguments are totally flawed, so I just LOL at their ignorance.

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)

I believe it was... the Oompa Loompas that said that?

And I feel like most of them are idiots, but I'm always afraid to tell anyone that I'm a fur because there's that worry at the back of my head that they might be more intolerant than I'd expect them to be. I've told one person, and luckily she knows more than just stereotypes.

If anyone has problems imagening fur haters to get a propper reaction, THIS should be of help. (It's on Gaia though, and I have no idea if that means you need an account, nor how long the topic will last)

PS. I only wrote that calmly because there is a limit to how much anger I can show through the net, and it threw me way past that line. In other words, if it had been in real life, i'd have punched them in the face, but since it was on the net, I instead just calmly blocked their insults (calmly for me to be that is).

I've only really heard horror stories of them. So that's a contemporary example of ignorance in action? :cry:

Okay, 2 things.

1- Internet trolls exists. Live with it, it's a widespread phenomenon. Do not feed the trolls, please, they are not worth it.

2- Fur haters are like homophobics. It's mainly based of prejudices and misconceptions. We must not hate them and return the flame, we must make them see what's the truth behind all this.
Hack I remember when I first found out what "being gay" was. Was what my first reaction? Disgusted, repulsed and mainly "yuk, what the heck?".

Am I a terrible person because I reacted like that? Not at all! I just was taught how it really was, I began to know gay people who are nice people, and by talking about it and seeing it in my life, it became something totaly normal. Heck, now I am gay. What was supposed to be the good reaction for gay people when I found that being gay was purely and simply disgusting? Hating me or teaching me?

People generally (note: generally) don't like what's different, what's unknown. We must not hate them, we must teach them. And be patient, you cannot change somebody in one day. That's how we're gonna change things. And if someone is too closed-minded and you can't take the insults they'll probably be giving, then just walk away. Just don't throw the mud back at them.
If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate...

Well, it's there opinion. But, to be quiet honest... I really don't see furs lovers around anymore. Alot of people don't even know what it is. Shame..... and oh yeah, homophobia kills. :shock:
