Someone judged Meadowlion based on him being a stoned skater but thats kinda the joke as he was drawn by my friend as a joke about how I dress and act.

Quite the opposite?  I actually get quite a lot of compliments about Mali. o.o Maybe except for those people who doesn't know what a sergal is at the time when I show them my sona. "What's a sergal"

LOL YEAH I HAD SOME HARDCORE JUDGEMENT WHEN I TRIED TO COMMISSION A FURSUIT
Everyone accused me of being a ~special snowflake~ and saying it was my own fault I couldn't find a suit since I'm not a wolf, and some people even told me to "compromise" on my species ???

I also unfortunately get it at cons, nobody's straight-up said anything to me, but I can tell when I'm fursuiting. Some people get this Look on their face, and at the last con I actually had a photographer walk away when I tried to get in a picture with someone I knew


See, this makes no sense to me?? A Platypus is a really great fursona, and  I love your character and your suit turned out great.

People complain all the time that there are too many wolves, foxes, etc. in the fandom, but then they go and treat you like this? That's just not cool.

I personally get really excited to see other species.

Yeah i'm sure some people have thought it as a weird fox thing :sad-fox:

Also it's not as cute a fursona as some of my others as its a bit wolf like lol some people like my older characters better, my cute doggy characters. I still like lemurdog though (maybe one day I'll think of a proper name) I love the tail and the yellow eyes.

Someone said that Dusk looked like a chimney sweeper, which I can see why they would think that, but I took that more as a compliment. So Dusk is now a chimney sweeper! I dont think you can even tell that hes a fox anymore with all that soot.

No, he's never been judged. I mean, I've had a few people online dislike Alastair for his very simple design with not much color, but the majority of people seem to really like him. Which is a pleasant surprise considering he was my first fursona and character.

In real life, I've only shown Alastair to a couple friends, mainly because I've doodled him in art class before. But they seemed to like him. I didn't tell them he was my fursona, but one friend of mine figured out I was a furry earlier, so she probably could've guessed.

Yeah, that's how I lost Ridley Kaiju. Apparently she was "too similar" to someone else's fursona Kero. Of course she had a fur suit, so there's no way I could keep Ridley. In fact, Kero's owner actually messaged me on a site and told me it was kind of similar (in a polite way). I just decided to give up on her after that. Other than my overly-dramatic story about Ridley, I haven't really been judged. I have gotten some positive feedback from classmates on Iko, Spike, and Pepper Pannda.

      I don't think that people should criticize the personal decisions of others because it isn't entirely correct until something is being done wrong. Even then, I'll admit, I despise others judging me because I feel I'm not perfect enough. I'm sure people have that weird of me because of my fursona. Doves are very rare in our society. I don't know if people are honestly criticizing my choice though. They just find it intriguing which I'm fine with. I have known people discriminate against species in the society. Some people refuse to talk to certain species or to only a certain species. I don't find it much of an issue because nothing anyone thinks really matters to me. In the end, I won't be judged based on people anyway. As long as you're content and you've done the best at whatever it is, it's good enough. Don't listen to false judges in this world.

Before my dad found out I was furry I showed him a drawing of my old fursona, a white kangaroo with blue markings and he asked what it was and I said "it kinda represents me" and then he was like "THAT represents YOU?" in a disgusted voice.

The only piece of criticism I've gotten on either of my sonas was today when my friend said the thing on Techmo's head looked like... Well, I won't say it, but if you've seen Techmo, you can probably understand. Rather than feeling offended, I almost died laughing.
idk, my sonas are rather new, and as I gradually become more social around the net, there will definitely be more judgment to come my way.

If I don't reply to you or take a very long time to do so, don't take it personally! I'm bad with words and people and socializing, so, uh, I don't really talk much when I don't feel like I need to. I'm really sorry!

Hmm not that I know of, I mean a lot of people don't like spiders so I'm pretty sure somebody doesn't like her just because of her species XD but haven't gotten anything serious other than compliments^^ The only problem I have is getting commissions since not a lot of people are comfortable drawing extra limbs.
My eeray hasn't gotten any hate but I haven't said anything about her being a sona anywhere but here and I feel if people knew I use her as more than just character I may get some judgment because of her being a closed species so people may think I only chose her as a sona to flaunt her around. I've seen somebody use a their dreamy as their sona, so maybe I'm just overthinking things :P

I'm not the most social person plus both characters are still pretty new so I haven't gotten a whole lot of feedback XD

I feel like some of the fandom has judged my fursona because I'm a goat. It's a rare fursona, but it's most definately rising in popularity. I question whether the awkwardness interferes with people wanting to interact with me in the fandom, but I'm sure it probably does lead people to feel weird about me. All in all though, I love being a goat. They're such hreat animals in reality despite some of misconceptions made about them. You can judge me if you want, but I am who I am and nothing will ever change me.
