How do I deal with the increased hate for being a furry?
« on: January 16, 2019, 01:05:22 pm »
The Kothorix video on "The Furry Community is Worse Than You Can Imagine" got recommended to everyone on YouTube and now people hate furries again like it's 2006.

I can't deal with being hated like North Korea and treated like subhuman scum just for what I like. I'm thinking about leaving because the hate is too much for me.

Help.

Try to breath and stay calm, people are stupid and jump on the lastest trend to hate, try to stay away from places that may have people like this and Don't engage with them it will just make it worse

I think more than anything else it’s just a meme. A new generation of edgy teens is growing up online, being served the bad side of the community on a silver plate and thinking ‘oh heck these people are messed up ahahahaha I don’t really know why everyone hates them but it’s cool to hate them so why not’. It’s like the whole furry vs gamer thing on tiktok. It’ll blow over.

I know the hate mostly consists of memes, but sometimes it seems like they actually want us to die. Its pretty unsettling to me, and now i feel more suppressed..

Just know that anyone who says stuff like that is probably just a kid trying to be edgy. Block and move on.

As much as I'm able to ignore it you're right, its ridiculous how aggressive they are
