How would you describe the fandom?
« on: February 11, 2015, 04:11:52 pm »
I have been thinking about this, looked it up, and have my own way of describing it, but I was wondering what or how you(everyone) would describe the fandom themselves.

Sorry if there was already a topic about this I thought there was but I couldn't find it.

Very eccentric, nuff said

edit

This fandom also is a portal for many people from all over the world to com together and celebrate one like topic. It can also allow people to meet new friends and experience new cultures they may have never heard of before, and I have to say, personally, this is one of the best fandoms i know thats out there. There are other fandoms, however they are usually focused on something (bronies - my little pony, whovians - Doctor who, etc.) where as the furry fandom is sprouted just from pure imagination and true fascination in animals and becoming closer with animals (not in that way you pervert.) I love this fandom and everyone in it, I cant wait to go to Anthrocon or MFF this year and meet more furries! I love all of you guys.

The fandom is special... There's good parts like the creativity but there's a lot of bad stuff like the yiff (there's way too much yiff, it seems to be everywhere)

The perfect combination of everything good and bad with the Internet. Except for the porn. The recipe said 1 tea spoon of porn to add flavor, but they added the whole bag

A fandom that celebrates anthropomorphic animal characters. Typically through creating artwork, costumes, characters and stories.

That's how I'd probably introduce the fandom if I had to explain it to someone. There's no need to explain the sexual elements or any drama, unless you really want to discuss them.

I have always described it exactly as such: "Furrry Fandom is the Fandom for Anthropomorphic animals or animal characters that display human characteristics such as walking on two legs, and talking. Basically like, Loony toons, Disney's Robin Hood *Proceeds to list 'well known' things which contain furries* So yeah, everyone I've met in the fandom is really nice and the level of creativity among these people is astonishing."

I describe the furry fandom as a very creative and nice fandom, all the furries I've met so far are really nice and friendly. One of the first things that comes to my mind about the fandom is the awesome and creative anthropomorphic artwork. I think this is the best fandom out there, besides the yiff side of the fandom,  but all Fandoms have their dark sides. You should always be optimistic and look at the good, creative, and friendly side of the fandom.

ok forreal haha
it's really hard to describe the purpose or the /point/ of the furry fandom, cause everyone is here for a different reason?
everyone is really different, everyone has varied interests and reasons for joining, to the point where there's smaller fandoms within the fandom itself. it's weird, it's varied, it's fascinating, and it can be pretty awful at times 8( but it can be full of creativity, uniqueness, furries have a great sense of community and (usually) are very accepting and inclusive of otherwise 'weird' things.
so i guess if i had to describe it in one word, i'd just say 'diverse'.

It just has its ups and downs. Its sometimes good to make friends here. I've seen so many furs look down at one another. It can be bothersome. Nonetheless I just enjoy what the fandom has to offer art,fursuits, rp etc

Lots of good things, lots of bad things. The fandom is very open and excepting, you can be whoever you want to be. It's a fandom full of creators, be it drawing, costumes, writing, music etc.. However, there are a lot of bad things and pretty gross people that make the fandom a not so great place.

It's a fun fandom but a lot of furries are drama starters. like you can have a character with the same color and species as someone's fursona and they'll fucking explode. There's also a lot of transphobia. There's a lot of good parts like the con funds being donated to animal shelters and stuff. Plus a lot of people are nice

Pretty cool for the most part, but way too judgmental, immature and dramatic for my taste in a lot of places.

Furries tend to be either the nicest, most positive people or the most immature, hostile people you'll ever meet. As a whole, furries can be a little dramatic, but the majority have good intentions. If you find the right folks, the furry fandom can be a wonderful place.
