Why people dislike furries
« on: February 10, 2016, 10:32:38 pm »
I can describe why people hate the furry fandom. I found this really stupid video and I figured this would be the perfect place to show it to everyone.
https://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=youtu.be&v=idejQ41RQDA#
Warning: this guy is kindof a jerk... But it's kinda funny

*edit* oops I put this in the wrong thing sorry.
Lol I'm soooo tired.

*edit* I meant to put this in the describe the furry fandom thingy.

I split this into its own topic instead of merging it with the describe the fandom topic since I think it could be an interesting topic on its own ^^

I'll have to watch the video when I get home

Wow there is a lot of angry ranting in that video, I guess there are some points in that??
I think there is a lot of drama in a lot of communities though?

Just want to point out that there's always going to be a bad side to anything.
It's our jobs to make it better though.

Saw this a while ago, kinda interesting to watch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y5KR7As9xrU

I think that there are some true things in this video though.

Very often is it a case of bashing before you try it. People don't like the things they can't understand, or things that they typically see as overly childish or stupid. And I'm sure you all have heard about the media argument and it's poor portrayal of furries, and unfortunately, people eat that stuff up.

Sometimes I think people simply don't understand it, and tend to be almost fearful of something they don't understand, leading to them making assumptions, and therefore hating it. I can't blame them, I mean it's not exactly the most normal hobby, but they should do their research.

Eh, I think it mostly come down to people tending to dislike things that are different and weird to them. And it's hard to find something more different and weird than furries.

Basically it's because you generally only see the bad side of the fandom thanks to the media, TV shows like CSI, 1000 Ways to Die, etc. Not to mention that your average twitter fur is a bit of a bad case as well. There's lots of good, but it's just a hell of a lot easier to find all the negatives.

Because i guess theres some people who just find furries weird/revolting probably due to some reasons, like because of yiffers by example.

People are just too sucked into media sometimes.

Well yiff is like every where
People in this fandom always reject the idea of the yiff and stuff
Not to mention the stuff with tony tiger and zootopia
So yeah we are going to get a lot of hate like a lot of other fandoms

      I know that furries are some of the most publically disputed people. Some people are absolutely fine with furries while others despise our site. Many people don't like furries because they see some of the stereotypes and some corrupt members of the society. There's a consistant stereotype that all furries are oversexualized teenagers that are into zoophilia. To summarize this, being a furry is viewed as a paraphilia by several misguided people. They believe because we identify with animals, we feel attracted to real animals and thus have a sexual desire for them. I'm not entirely sure where the idea came from but it's very popular amongst anti-furries. We do identify with animals on a personal basis, but not a sexual basis. A lot of people just don't know what furries really are.

The same person who made the first video made a second part as well, he's the link:

https://youtu.be/uvUXrlvTqB0

He reviews the same stuff in the first video, but does not act like a total jerk this time. Also, I found a very interesting video on the furry fandom, the person in the video makes some very interesting points about the furry fandom. I can't remember if he mentions anything about why people hate furries, but it's an interesting video nonetheless.

I think it's because for some reason, furries on image boards meant for both furries and non-furries (4chan, etc.) tend to post sexual pictures, which gives non-furries the wrong idea of the fandom!

People are just too used to their lifestyle to try new things I guess. And because of that, they tend to become "close-minded" and naturally dislike anything that they are not sure of or used to. I wouldn't take it personally though, it's just how people are I guess. I hope this helped.  :fox-:):
