Drama is prevalent. Some people don't understand how much words and lies can hurt.

Honestly, it's how much unnecessary hate this fandom gets. I hate being judged by people irl for being a furry, they automatically assume that in some way I'm a pervert or "cringy", which isn't true.

I would say drama but what place/fandom doesn't have lots of drama and gate keepers :/
So lets see cub porn, bestiality, and the fact the fandom seems to like to exclude females(female presenting) unless there using them for there weird fetishes.

This :fox-:P: females exist in the fandom and want to be included and shouldn't be sexualitied because of it. Boob shapes with no nips are not automatically sexual and it not ok to make sexual comments about them (I'm a lesbian and love boobs but I can understand this so idk why other can't)

Honestly the in your faceness of fetishes is one of my biggest issues with the fandom. As long as it's morally/legally ok (so NOT stuff like cub porn or beastiality) I'm fine with people having fetishes and buying art of it but I'd rather not see inflation furs, vote, bdms and other types of fetish art in public spaces (ie the general rating on fa or on twitter), not everyone likes that stuff so I'd prefer if people kept it under adult filters or adult accounts. I find it also leads to other issues regarding people sexualizing people's characters, such as my cow sona, people assume she's a fetish character because she's a cow but she doesn't even have udders

Most of my peeves with the Furry Fandom have already been covered but I am just gonna add Nazi Furs to that list. As with views, I have tried to explore the perspective of these people and reach their conclusions but I just can't find any way to justify anyone taking on a mantle like that.

Everything mentioned above, but also the stigma against young furries. I understand that young teenagers can be immature, but other than on FT, there aren't a lot of places for young furs to feel welcomed. (there's also furry amino but that place is crazy)

Although I haven't really experienced it on a personal level yet, I would say all the hate and drama.

yes

This site is like the opposite of how the media portrays furries, so it's always strange to see people act like those stereotypes outside of FT.

Basically the stuff that's already been covered before.
Especially how much crap we get for saying we're furries. I just like animals, that's no reason to shun me.

Oh. My. Fucking. God.
I can't tell you how much drama I've experienced in one year of being in the fandom. I know you've been through a ton as well.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention all the goshdarn art drama and how so many people are too open about their fetishes. Fetishes are okay to have, just don't shove them in my face everywhere I go.
