Anyone fly below the radar?
« on: March 04, 2017, 04:11:06 pm »
Anyone here who hasn't told anyone in real life that they're a furry? Why?

Me. I believe there's just too much stigma in identifying as one. Plus, a bunch of my classmates are quite conformist and judgemental. In addition to that, I think I'm one of like five furries in my whole country.

I usually don't tell anyone, No one really needs to know really, so I don't go out of my way to tell everyone.

People are just too judgemental. I haven't told like 90% of people I know.

My family is really nice and chill, so they know. A couple online friends know and good-naturedly tease me about it sometimes. Other than that I mostly "fly below the radar" because I don't want people to get the wrong impression of me.

I've never really felt the need to talk anyone irl about it. Well that and my family is openly anti-furry, so...

That would be another reason for me, my dad is a REALLY judgmental kind of person.  My plan is to keep it a secret until I get my own life out there, and surround myself with more accepting friends, hopefully furries too :fox-:):

I've told like 3 people, and that's it. Just no reason to, it only adds drama...

I'm sure my mom has figured by now due to be making a Suit Head but I've never really bothered to tell her. P-much everyone else knows though due to it being brought up in conversation.

There are very few people in my life who know that I'm a furry. I try to be discrete about it as possible even though I can be seen using Furry Amino in class sometimes and even using Furry Teens at school. I try not to be open about being a furry because I feel that people will have a lesser opinion of me than they all ready do. The furry fandom has a terrible reputation of being over-sexualized because of the members who pride themselves on their lust being so proud and famous. I don't want to be seen as a secual deviant. I don't think anyone does. That's a lot of the reason why many people, including myself, try to avoid it. It's not that we're ashamed. It's all because of a warped perception of the furry fandom given by most people that makes it seem so wrong. Very few people actually know what the furry fandom is all about. Although some people do value it, sex isn't the core of our fandom and many of us don't even like that side of the fandom. I think as society progresses, if they continue the way they have been, being a furry won't necessarily be something that people would have to hide.

Only one person irl knows I'm a furry. I don't hide or deny it but no one ever asks :fox-:P: she saw me on FT once and asked so I told her but other than that I keep it to myself. For me Furry is a hobby and I don't feel the need to tell everyone

Only one person, my nearly best friend. I dont tell my parents because I don't want them to find yiff. I won't tell most of my friends because I think they may have predisposed misconceptions.

If someone asks, yes I tell them. Other than that no. It's like sexuality kinda. You shouldn't have to come out as gay, lesbian, bisexual, etc., and you shouldn't have to come out as a furry. You should just be yourself and f*** anyone who doesn't accept you as you.
