As I've already shown my parents, and this account is still here, no.

I think that they might think that it's weird, but they hardly know how to use a computer, so anything Internet related is safe from them :fox-:P:

No, they know im a furry (even though they don't really know what it is), but no, they don't really care unless it's something bad.

Well, I'm way past the age of my parents doing things like that (or at least I like to think I am =P ), but my mom actually kiiinda knows about this site and she thinks its cool x) I don't think she understands the term "furry" still, but she definetly knows about fursuits and the art and all that jazz, and has heard me talk about "my forum" to my bf and stuff. I actually reference a decent number of posts/people from here, and she thinks is cool that a community like this exists  :fox-:P:

seeing as i'm a fursuiter + fursuit maker i don't think my parents would care too much, it's not exactly news. i've always had friends all over the world that i met online, so they'd be chill with it.

Nope! I believe they already know about this site and they do not seem to mind it at all!

If it makes y'all feel better, our current policy against account deletion works in your favor in this case; a parent can't just login and delete your account.  That said, we've had this sort of thing come up in the past.  Legally, if you're under 18 and your parent emails us requesting that your account be deleted, we have to honor that request.  However, when it's happened before, I've calmly discussed things with the parent(s), and they generally back off.  I think there's only one time where a parent has persisted and I had to follow through on the deletion request.

The more common scenario is a parent blocking the site via parental controls on the computer/router/device, which is a flawed approach for a lot of reasons :)

So, yes, there you go; your parents can't delete your accounts without administrative intervention, and we're on your side :)

My parents would ask what it is first.
Then if they goggled it and found the bad stereotypes, they would make me delete it.
If they didn't find anything bad they wouldn't do anything!  :D

They will delete it for sure, or at least block my connection to the site as they probably will not understand what an furry is and don't want to even know.
I'll build a better world someday

Considering my dad is a huge CSI fan and has watched every episode (i have heard him talking about how much he hates furries before) and the rest of my family save for my brother would most likely hate me if the found out im bisexual and have a boyfriend and considering all the proof one would need to find that stuff out about me is on here, yeah after finding all they could out about me, they would delete my FT account and my facebook account to try and stop communication between me and my boyfriend

yup, i think my parents would too. they don't even know that i'm a furry to begin with. they don't really like furs, they see them, us as weirdos. not exactly a confidence booster... oh well.

My mom and guardians are totally okay with me being in the furry fandom, they even show a massive support and my mom will be going to a fursuit outing soon to meet some of the furs near me :) So I'd say they wouldn't request a delete of my account :)

Thats a big nope! Besides Im 18 almost 19, I think they would stop when they realize they have to get permission to delete my account especially since I've been here for over a year now, if they do somehow get permission and my account was deleted I'd just create a new account. Their not tech savvy enough to block the site.
I know they wouldn't care though, they know I'm a fur, I've been in the fandom for 5 years, I've spent over a hundred dollars in fursuit supplies and occasionally make fursuit stuff, I've been drawing anthros for atleast 10 years, I'm going to my first furry convention in a couple months.
The only thing my mom is unhappy about is me talking to strangers and eventually going to a con with strangers. She's way over protective though, probably the reason for my social anxiety. My dad just wants me to spend my money on more important stuff like a car ^^'
I guess I just don't see the extremeness of "coming out as a furry" like a lot of people.
