my two brothers that i live with are furry haters.
Hooray.
I have to access this website at 5:00 in the morning in secret, or there will be horrendous consequences! Thinking about it makes me feel bad.  :(

Generally, they think "HOW DARE YOU BE DIFFERENT, WHAT, IS MY WAY OF LIFE NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR YOU!?".

But my bros don't know I'm a furry, Ha. I rule, or do I?  :?

Sorry if what I said came off in a bad way, but I wasn't defending the group or their actions, in fact, I've disliked all I've met besides my one friend, I was just mentioning that there are always exceptions. I know for a fact that their behavior is stupid. I have been attacked by some of them before, and I agree with what you said about them being enemies, I just don't like characterizing every single person that if they belong to a certain group they have to act a certain way.

Once again, I apologize if what I wrote angered you in any way.

Nah, it's all good.  I wasn't sure where you were heading with your post, but my comments were more meant for some people here who I think probably would defend the actions of the /b/ crowd.

sooo felix what your saying is....OMFG COVERUP!!! FURRY CONSPIRACY! lol j/k.

so would that explain the reason i got a message on my yahoo account reading as "YIFF IN HELL FURFAG" ?

LOL

If it was via email, it's related to the attack, yes.  If it was via messenger (I can't tell which one it was from your post), PM me the person's Yahoo name, if you still have it, and I'll check it out.

They get on my nerves, but at the same time, I quite enjoy repulsing them with my furriness. They kind of make me laugh tbh.

I really don't like them.
It's okay if you're just not into furries as a hobby, that's okay! Everyone has different interests.
But if you hate, bully, and shun someone just for liking furries, then that's a different story.
I know they've been misinformed by the internet and think it's either a weird fetish or "cringy dress up game", but even when I try to tell them the truth about the fandom // that I'm not one of those people, they are completely ignorant about it and say "YES YOU AREEEE"
I've lost friends because I'm a furry. It's like rejecting a friend just because you like basketball and they don't- furries are, to most people, just a hobby/fandom/interest. You shouldn't bash anyone for it, and it hurts to see so many ignorant people out there.

A mix between sadness and not caring. It makes me sad that these misconceptions exist, and that people actually bully others just for a hobby. But I've learned to ignore it.
If it's someone I know, I'll try to educate them on the fandom. If I were to friend a "furry hater" by accident, that refused to change their ways, I'd unfriend them real quick. Not worth my time.

I think it's silly to hate on people just because they have an interest you don't share or find weird. I think not liking th fandom is perfectly acceptable, it is odd, there's lots of porn and toxicity and I think it's justified that someone may not like that. But there's a huge difference between saying "I really don't like the furry fandom" to "I hate all furries they need to die". When it starts to become a personal attack on the people in the fandom or threats I think it's gone too far. Let people have their fun, as long as they're not hurting anyone there's no need to personally attack them

Yeah me too, it's obviously not everyone's cup of tea. However, I feel like a lot of people don't know that the fandom is more than just that porn and toxicity side. People who dislike the furry fandom might be a bit more accepting if everyone was informed, but people who hate on it are obviously only doing it to cause drama, they wouldn't change.

If you dislike the fandom, that's your choice, my problem is when people harass and bully people for being a part of it.
