Would humans coexist with furries in a furry world?
« on: March 08, 2016, 11:42:54 pm »
Y'know, since humans are animals too..

Even though I like to think that humans wouldn't exist in a world full of anthropomorphic animals, I'm sure they would exist but just be very rare.

Well, my theory on how the furry world comes to be is like a mass transformation of some sort. Either the world as they know it changed after this mass virus or genetic altering agent spread across the world, or it's a completely different world like... Let's say in a computer program that the remains of humanity are forced to live on for the rest of eternity, but eventually forget all about the human world before them. Both ways, all humans were completely wiped out.

It would work but it could be like the mass effect world. The varying species and some of them like each other and then some of them just straight up hate each other

I think there would be the human activists furries trying to provide benefits for the humans, and then the evil furries who dislike humans. Also, there could be furry activist humans and evil humans who dislike furries.

We can't even handle people with different skin color or religion, do you really think we could co-exist with people so different? :/ IMO the only way furries could actually exist would be if everyone was a furry. We're just not capable of co-existing.

Look at how we treat animals of high intelligence and empathy--elephants, dolphins, gorillas. No matter how intelligent the animal is, if something makes us view it as lesser, we treat it as such. Furries would probably be kept in some sort of zoos, used for testing, or worse.

Wait if it's a furry world then wouldn't we, the furries, be doing test on them, the humans?

What Anatomist meant was furry characters, like if our fursonas were actual creatures.

If furries existed though, it wouldn't be "humans and animals" anymore though? Since furries have the same intelligence as humans and everything, humans would just be another species, like wolves or tigers. So I see exactly zero reasons why humans and furries couldn't coexist.

That is, assuming humans didn't create furries through some sort of lab experiments or something.

It is more about how furrys came into the world and how they scale population wise to each other
If being a furry is chosen like you go into a clinic of some kind on two feet and out on four paws then its probably gonna be fine as long as its socially acceptable like cosmetic surgery or just some new fashion trend
If being a furry is caused by some sort of virus/mad-scientist-furry that randomly changes people into Furrys and there isn't a clear antidote/way to prevent it then there will be some sort of action against it most likely war/genocide against furrys

Only if being a furry has some significant benefits over being a human like it being required for better jobs, extended livespan, enhanced cognitive functions, and becoming a furry can be easily and cheaply achieved and reversed then I think that there will be a change from a human society to a mainly furry one while 2-3 generations
I'll build a better world someday

As much as I'd like to think they would they probably wouldn't. Maybe eventually they'd learn to get along but I doubt it

      I sure hope not. I don't like humans coexisting with furries. We're furries for a reason. I've seen people use a human as their fursona before and it gets on my nerves. That's absolutely not how it works. You can't be something you all ready are in real life. They can't use the excuse that humans are technically classified as animal. We're too much different from actual animals. Humans didn't come primates no matter what the biologists say. Humans are their own. It disturbs me to see humans in the furry society. It almost seems like someone is desperate to belong to a society with a minority focused on pure sexual activity. It's how they act and it's an absolute insult to furries. The majority is nothing like that. I surely hope humans wouldn't exist among us. They aren't animalistic enough to be deemed a potential fursona. It's ridiculous to use what you are as your fursona species. Why would you ever wish to do that? Another thing that really makes me frustrated with human interference is the idea that furries are actual animals that can be sold as pets and treated as actual animals. That's not who we are and that's not what we are.

Perhaps most of the humans in the furry world would actually be shapeshifters- Y'know, like werewolves and stuff. Their true forms would be humans but they would stay in their animal forms almost all of the time to fit in with the rest of society.

Now that would be a world I wouldn't mind living in

Look at how we treat animals of high intelligence and empathy--elephants, dolphins, gorillas. No matter how intelligent the animal is, if something makes us view it as lesser, we treat it as such. Furries would probably be kept in some sort of zoos, used for testing, or worse.

While I definitely agree with the first paragraph of your argument in that there would be a severe struggle to co-exist which would be greatly amplified if the numerous species had to co-exist on the same planet I don't necessarily see at is impossible just as stated before, really freak'n difficult.

I agree we don't treat the other animals on this planet the way we should Sentience and consciousness is arguably in most people's eyes,  a completely different category in comparison to high intelligence animals. What breaks your argument most for me is the stated belief Furry species would likely be placed in Zoos. Honestly, Slavery would itself be more likely than that outcome but I see both as highly improbable due to a large number of modern cultures which view such practices as barbaric (as they should!).  While I have no doubt that racism would be a catastrophic problem (I can definitely see extremists going to the length of KKK style of racism with lynching) I find it extremely difficult to believe the Human race as a whole could justify the enslavement or genocide of other sentient species. Furthermore, I feel the aforementioned Furry Species would find support from other suppressed minorities who would better understand the problems facing said Furry Species and be more likely to offer sympathy.

To conclude, I imagine we would likely see conflicts not unlike those that emerged after the emancipation of black slaves in North America though on a much larger scale and magnitude if the Furry species were present in multiple countries with the worst case likely being if were present all over the world as different countries and cultures would react to the emergent new species in different and potentially worse ways than more forgiving countries. But,  in the end, after a great and perhaps unfathomable struggle I genuinely believe Humans would find a way to co-exist with the Furry Species and perhaps the whole ordeal might well lessen the internal racism faced by the sperate human races and minorities. But then again I am more of an optimist.  :fox-;):

Wow, that came out to be a lot longer of a post than I originally intended... Oh well I needed to make up for the lack of stupid long posts made by me since I returned.

^pretty much this. We can't even get over our own differences so I don't think there's anyway we could coexist with other species

Maybe if we all elvolved at the same time it could work but there's no way I could see anthros coming into our society now and us being able to coexist

I think it'd be a lot more interesting if humans and anthropomorphic animals sort of just segregated themselves.
