Your Input: The Fandom (Furry Book Project)
« on: April 25, 2010, 09:42:10 pm »
Greetings, all! Some of you may have noticed my post about writing a book in the 'Artwork' forum before it was removed by your cautious moderators, and justly so! In the realm of the furry fandom, especially when people from the teenage community are involved, representation is extremely important. Given some advice from the moderators, I'd like to amend my proposal a little, especially given the target audience I'm working with.

Firstly, though, I'd like to outline some things for you:
1. Under no circumstances will I ask for your name or any identifying information as part of my writing. I want your honest input into portions of my book, specific furry information / questions / et al. I will not be looking to expose you, find 'dark and dirty secrets' or anything else of the sort. My book will require no personal information whatsoever either. Anyone speaking on my behalf as such should be promptly reported to the moderators or assumed to be someone falsely using my account.
2. If I wish to include something you've said in my book, I will ask you, and run the text past you before including it. If you say something that strikes me as an introspective and complete response that captures an aspect of the fandom, I may ask to quote you in my book. I will be quoting you based on your furry name, and will make my request through the PM tools, so as not to single out people selected for their input. If I am requesting a direct quote, I will provide you with the quote itself in the PM. If I am requesting a synopsis of your ideas, I will run the synopsis past you first, including any quotations, to ensure that I have effectively captured your thoughts. Under no circumstances will I publish anything with unconfirmed quotes or synopses.
3. I will be respectful of every opinion provided, even if I don't agree with it. I will be running different parts of my book past you, specifically items that would apply to teens. If you provide an opinion, I will consider it for inclusion, depending on the breadth of it. I want to get a good slice of the fandom in the book, and doing so involves taking opinions from every side.
4. I value your input! Everyone who gives their opinion is helping this happen. I want to make this something that will help explain the fandom to people who are unindoctrinated (such as a lot of young teens) as well as those who don't even know the fandom exists. Ideally this should be a book that you could hand to a person on the street and say "HERE! This is what furry is!", as opposed to these fantastic media portrayals we have at the moment.

Currently my book is split into the following (these aren't premanent chapter titles):
  • Furry History - Includes fandom history and the history of anthropomorphism. Very fact-based.
  • Furry Identity - Talks about the creation and discovery of a fursona, and about how it changes.
  • Furry Spirituality - Addresses the spiritual aspects of furry, including therianism and other belief systems that are widely held by furries.
  • Furry Creativity - Includes writing, art, fursuiting and other creative aspects. Might end up being a 'section', as opposed to a chapter.
  • Furry Society - Includes event planning, social dynamics, and the prevalence of online communities to it.
  • Furry Gatherings - Includes talk of conventions, and a deeper dive into the dynamics of furry events.
  • Furry Media - Includes talk about the efforts of furries to be recognized by the media, or to make their own media streams.
  • Furry Sexuality - This is not something I plan on talking to this group about in detail. I'm very sure I'll have more than enough info from other sources.

Feel free to recommend other sections, items I should focus on, etcetera, especially if something is important to you and I haven't mentioned it!

The aim is to use this forum as a general discussion thread to address points that will be part of my book.

The first point will be this:

How did you find out about the fandom?
The creative is the place where no one else has ever been. You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you'll discover will be wonderful. What you'll discover is yourself.

To answer your first point, C.S.I.  This seems like a book that needs to be written.

Indeed. Most of it is going to be my thoroughly unentertaining drivel (heh), but I want to put some focused content in as well, and make sure I'm not just focusing on my own ideas. :)

This begs the question, however, did you originally view it as something awesome, or something awful?

To be blunt, it was the porn. In fact, most of the furries I've talked to only got into it because of some sort of attraction to the mature underground of anthropomorphic artwork. Back in the day, I'd have found it interesting, but at the same time disliked myself for doing so. Eventually this got alleviated, but all I can say is that initially, it was as you say, 'awesome', but it was best something kept on the down-low rather than make my attraction/interest obvious.

Ugh. I wish I could say I found the fandom by mistake, from some random link lying around on youtube but just as Hale said 'twas the mature art.I was young and naive, I veiwed it from Devint Art then one of the pictures had a link to Fur Affinity(wich at the moment I thought was just another art site).

 A intresting ad for a comic caught my eye at that site, Furthia High. I read it, then i saw anothe ad on that site for a comic called Concession. I absolutley loved this comic, the plot, how Immleman (The Artist) drew it. Half way through he had a filler that said he was going to "Anthrocon" the furry convention. I was curious so I checked out the site and it had a page called "what is a furry?" I read it and was inspired to create my own fursona. This led me to everything; Furry Teens, Wikifur, And various Furry based webcomics.

For me it started way back but did not fully manifest until recently.  I always loved watching animated films with animals(like Balto, All Dogs Go to Heaven), the characters seemed so much more sincere than their human counterparts.  About three years ago I stumbled across by sheer chance, VCL. I saw work by Magnus, which I adored, then went digging deeper across the web until I came across the collective work of the alias Blotch.  Pouring over piece after piece, the textures, colors and composition had something there, something quite characterful an beautiful beyond anything I had seen before.  It was inspiring to say the least, and after holding it in and telling myself that because of some stigma or another I could not join this crazy vibrant thing that is the fandom; I made the leap.  Needless to say I am happy did.

Ruslan: I can definitely relate. Disney's Robin Hood was a staple of my childhood. I watched that VHS tape until it was practically falling apart.

Hale Laocon / cooljoe224: It's inevitable. With furry, there is definitely a high percentage of exposure of the adult content over the not-so-adult content. Despite the origins, it's nice to see people into furry for more than just the prons. :)

Thank you all for your input!

For me, it was actually the dictionary. I'd been kinda obsessed with anthropomorphics in general, but I didn't know what it was. So I decided to find a word for it, and I wouldn't put down the dictionary till I did. Lucky break "anthropomorphic" starts with A. I then googled it, and found the fandom. After dinking around a little more, I came across FT, and here I am!

Harlan: Sounds like my first forays into sex ed. >_> I'm a little miffed because the Ontario government is chucking their plans to introduce education pertaining to sexuality, racial diversity, and gender identity in the earlier grades (Grades 1-8). A pity, but I digress.

Given the responses (thank you all!) I'm going to toss another question out there...

If you had the option of having one resource to introduce you to the furry fandom, what would it be?

Examples could include a book (of course), an impartial documentary, an experienced furry fan, or a magazine article. There's no wrong answer. :)

Well, when I first got into furry, after I had read pretty much every major website on the subject, I started looking for furry books, and couldn't find any.  It'd be nice if there were some furry books out there, especially if they were in bookstores.  I mean, even here in redneckland, our bookstores have a few shelves of fantasy/sci-fi, it'd be nice if there was at least one book on the shelf that had some furries in it :-P

Now, six and a half years later, the number of furry forums and websites has increased by several orders of magnitude, and young/new furries are decreasingly drawn to "dead tree" media, but it's still be nice to have some furry literature on the shelves.

It's definitely true, dead tree format is a dying art. Perhaps I should make the book available via PDF as well, however it would likely just be easier to provide as a website. :)

Ideally I'd be selling to cons first and foremost (handling the publishing myself through a self-publishing website) and shipping books ordered at cons out to people if they so choose, but self-publishing is a dangerous business. Manufacturing costs alone for a trade paperback are just shy of $10.00, which means the price of such a book would be around $15.00 (including shipping and whatnot). If I sell the book through the self-publisher's website, I'm looking at closer to $20.00, which I absolutely don't want to resort to. I want to have my cake and eat it too, offering a professionally-bound book at a fair price.

I've seen selectively few resources like Uncle Kage's talk about 'speaking to the media' (which is very well embedded into the content of this site), and an impartial reference would do a world of good.

Heck, I had to rely on the people on Furcadia and a single person on an anime forum that I grew to like to explain exactly what furry was to me. I think I had a better experience than most. ;)

I can show you the exact place I discovered the fandom.

Be warned though, those are some big files (so you can actually read what it says)
Weirdly enough, I was at a friend's house helping them clear out their cupboards because they were re-painting. During one of our breaks we were flicking through magazines and I came across this article in the october issue.
I totally realise now how much sugar-coating is in that thing xD I had a look around on the internet, joined two forums and eventually FA and loved it.
I don't really like the bad media attention it gets or the adult side, mostly the fact I'm not even old enough to legally view it =3

Furry and the Furry fandom to me is a sort of 'escape' from my normal life when it gets too mundane and boring. I've always loved animals and the fandom is just perfect- it's like another family in a way. I wouldn't say I'm a lifestyler or too involved when it comes to being furry but it is a really important part of my life.

Hope this helps you and good luck with the book! =)

Mm... that's a bit difficult to say.

My very first exposure to furry content (period) was back in 2004/2005-ish. Back then, I was still unfamiliar with the fandom as a whole, but began to frequent a chatroom known as YiffStar (now known as SoFurry) after Googling 'furry hentai' (I had found Furry as a subcategory on HentaiPalm, which led to my search).

Obviously, it was a very sexually-oriented room, mostly focusing on roleplaying and the like. At that point, though, I was still not acquainted with the fandom as a whole, just the pornographic side.

I first became acquainted with the fandom proper within the first two weeks of January 2006, when I joined Teen Second Life. While searching for clubs one day, I discovered a club known as Club Black Tears. It was one of the better Teen Grid clubs while it was still up, so I ended up frequenting it a lot.

But I digress. Anyway, they had a small display set up about furries and how there was apparently misinformation being spread about this group. It piqued my curiosity, so I took a notecard from it and read up on the fandom a bit. I then went to WikiFur, per suggestion of the notecard, and decided after a short while that this was something I really wanted to be a part of.

Not sure if that helps any, but good luck with your book nonetheless. c:

A friend told me about a show on mtv called sex2k it was about the furvert side of the fandom but then he told me about their are furries that are not furverts they just like anthro animals plush animals and that when I wanted to join the fandom. If you want see mtv sex2k go to youtube and type sex2k furry. I am no good at posting links.

Tristan: That totally helps! :) I'll admit I never heard of the Club Black Tears when I was on Second Life (for a brief stint), and it sounded like a great place.

wolf12: Ah yes, you can bet that I know of Sex2k's take on the furry fandom. lol I've got links to the source material from my initial searching. I'm glad you had someone introduce you to the fandom that knew more about it, but it still sucks that stuff like MTV's work is used as an introduction. :)

This begs the question, however, did you originally view it as something awesome, or something awful?

Well, neither actually.  I was just kind of like, " Not my cup of tea, but whatever floats your boat" before doing research a few years later after having heard someone mention furries again.  Then I realised that I was a furry.

 Finding the fandom was a pretty chance thing for me. The very first time I heard the word "furry" was, unfortunately, on the /b/ board of 4chan. I'm no longer a /b/tard, mostly because all those pictures of male genitalia really got annoying, but for some reason that message of "Yiff in Hell, Furfag" that had been posted all over the place stuck with me. Not because I agreed with it, or because I thought the person they directed it at was any less wrong, seeing as all those threads were started with a really raunchy picture asking for more furvert stuff, but because it really kind of bothered me.

 I'd often had daydreams about anthropomorphic characters, mostly ones from cartoons I really liked since I wasn't an imaginative kid. But in this way cartoons became a huge part of my life, and even today they're one of the only things I can watch on TV anymore. It was about a year ago I found the first non-furvert aspect of the fandom I'd ever seen. I'm a huge fan of slapstick and was watching a few old Three Stooges videos on YouTube when I noticed a video in the sidebar under "Recommendations" entitled "You Can't Do That to Greifer on YouTube." Basically, it was a Stooge-esque wordplay slapstick routine, with a furry on the receiving end. Still, I remembered the stuff I had read online, and decided that the entire fandom had to be sexual and perverted, and ignored it.

 About a year later, I started looking back into the slapstick aspect, half out of curiosity, half out of boredom. Looking into it a little more, I found a whole group of furries interested in slapstick comedy with their fursonas, a few on a sexual kind of stint but most for just the laughs. I ended up talking with one of them a few times, and he did a great job dispelling all the ideas I had about the fandom. With his help I really discovered what "furry" really is, and love it to pieces. I'm still fairly new to it all, but I have no regrets for getting on board so far, and I really don't see how I really could.
And that's why they call me Duino Duck- Drake of Daring, Mandarin of Magnificence, Water Fowl of West Seattle!

I discovered the fandom through Transformation Artwork. See: http://www.transfur.com/Info/ContentRules.aspx

I just came across it as I was browsing some of the artwork. I knew about it for a long time, but I was never really active in the fandom. I started becoming more active through Furry Teens.

Duino: Definitely an interesting story! There's a lot of people who come from 'the other side' of the furry / non-furry division in a more focused sense, but realize that it's not all as bad as it's made out to be. ;) That said, I'm definitely seeing a tendancy for people to be brought into the fandom by people already in the fandom with a good understanding of its elements.

Schism: And just to point out the other side of the ways of finding the fandom, artwork definitely has its place in bringing in new fans. :)

New question (I'll be posting all of them to the top thread to make sure people don't miss the current question*):

Assuming you're fairly new to the fandom, what are some names in the furry community that you feel are sources of unbiased and believable information?

This will likely be a list of the "who's who" of the fandom. I know a lot of the good ones personally, but I want to know those that are readily available to the common public, as opposed to someone who has been involved in the fandom for years. ;)

*Maybe someone in charge could let me know why I can't edit my previous posts in this thread. This post is just fine, showing the 'Modify' button where it should be, but none of my other posts list it as such. >_> Feel free to PM me if it's something I mucked up.
