    I dont really care about them, If they want to be that stupid, I let them, and find it funny most of the time (noone has ever won an arguments with me).  :lol-fox:
    Though some kind of piss me off, like this video on google: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-7843328046135961700&q=furry+%40gay . Makes me happy im not a human :)

Well mostly I don't care, but if they start shoving some faulty stereotypes at my face, I usualy quote some web page to prove them wrong. If they still don't get it, I'll just let them be. Not my fault if someone is stupid and ignorant. ^^

LOL! Just watched that video Archfox linked! Totaly made me laugh! :lol-fox:
She was realy freaking out... I wonder what would have happened if someone showed her something a bit more yiffy... o.o'

That video was produced as a joke, actually.  The girl who made it is actually quite furry-friendly, she was trying her hand at Fredryk Fox-style humour.  Unfortunately, it got blown WAY out of proportion, but she did later post an apology for not making it clear that it was a parody.

Well I was feeling quite low at the time then I see that. I just had enough. It wasn't really a hateful comment or a death threat. I just said what I thought in a very verbose and inelegant manner.

Okay but... look at all those comments, from all those people... it's just horrible. Even if the girl was serious, it would still be equally horrible.

You can't beat yourself up over wishing everyone was a pacifist that just defies the point.

Dolphin that was meant to be ironic. Beating and pacifism are exact opposites.

Ya, furry haters... well to name about 20, that would probably be the majority of my 9th grade math class.

as for the video, i found it funny, but at the same time it would have helped to show that she was joking by saying that at like the end of the video or something...

I thought the video was funny as it was obvious from her visibly faked enthusiasm that she was not serious. As for the comments.../b/tards are everywhere on every site. You should have better things to do than flame a not-that-great video with grammar absent messages.

Furry haters...
Well, to start with, I spend at least fifty percent of my day on 4chan, so I've heard everything from "Yiff in Hell, Furries" to "God Doesn't Love Furries".
  I'm not one to judge without seeing the other side of the conflict, however.  After all, do the media really want to hear about an average guy who just happens to be a furry?  No, they want to here about a yiff-addicted beastiality loving pedo.  Basically, if you're not a furry, you probably won't see the good side of the fandom.

Interesting point of view Rub. Very nice observations (and it's fun how it's true for a lot of other things, too)

But that reinforce my point of view. We must not hate back but only inform them.

    Agreed.  I wish more people would ignore stereotypes.  I mean, I'm a devout Christian, so people give me this odd look when I tell them that I listen to Marilyn Manson and every other band yo mamma's been hating on.  I can deal with that, but it's when people that don't understand who I am hate me just because I'm me.  When that happens, it's time to get the hell out of my room and off my computer to stand up for myself. 
...Sorry.  Ranting spasm.

I know what you mean, i looked up some news documentaries on youtube(most of them being BBC) before i got onto FT, and all i found were ones involving yiff loving old people(nothing against thoes guys), no teens like myself being interviewed on our perspective of the fandom, just the ones that give an "interesting" story. so i guess thats where you get some fur hatters, they are given information from one source, the TV, and they think that if the whole world is whatching that it has to be true for all of the one group they talk about(ie. goths, emo's, furries, wiccans, ect.).

When I tried to get my family back home to accept me...I think the most effective weapon I ever used was laughter. My mom went into my room once and tried to berate me about the evils of homosexuality and about Jesus etc...and I just chuckled and smiled at her comments...she quickly lost her determination to hurt me with words and then broke down and admitted to the things that made her homophobic in the first place.

Good strategy, laughter works almost every time. your family must be pretty religeous to have you leave(i got that from "When I tried to get my family back home to accept me..."), and it must have hurt like hell when your own mother tried to hurt you with words and stuff like that.

    Wow, my family... we're all religous, but we can accept each other for what we are.  My mom was probably the biggest influence on me--I couldn't live, knowing that she was unable to accept me.  Besides, I feel that a loving God would accept those that were homosexual and bisexual.
