Great story. The short version is that a girl on the swim team told me about it and said I would make a great furry. I disagreed at first. Now, I'm Fur-Fantastic!

I've been an avid member of the (horribly small :sad-fox:) Redwall fandom for ages, and I found furries through that a while back. I didn't really "join" the fandom until fairly recently though.

My older brother is a furry hater, he complained about how we are creepy and want to *ahem* every animal they see. Not the best first impression of the fandom but I'm here now and that's good :lol-fox:

There was this dude on Instagram who followed me, then later he changed his account into a cartoon fox fursona account. I didn't really thing he was weird, because what was so wrong about liking cartoon animals? I noticed tons of other people had these kinds of characters. I learned it was called "furry". I thought "ok, that's cool." Then I forgot about it.
What REALLY got me hooked was the whole fursuit thing. Found it while searching Yahoo Answers and I thought "Furries get costumes of their characters? That's sounds awesome! I wanna be one!" so I created a fursona and here we are.

So How'd You Know About The Furry Fandom?
« Reply #225 on: November 28, 2016, 06:46:34 pm »
So anyways, how did everyone learn about the furry fandom?

One day, I was randomly googling, and I stumbled on a furry artwork. I thought it looked cool, so I clicked on it and learned it was a type of artwork know as furry. I then found furrafinity, and through looking at some nice artwork, I have found more about the fandom. I eventually learned about fursonas, how they worked, and fursuiting, and I thought it looked cool. Then I somehow eventually ended up on this site, and decided to start trying to draw.

I found out about it via my friends about a year ago. Sadly, it was not in a positive manner, as they were talking about how much they disliked it, and how disgusting it was. I had asked what it was, and they immediately gave what I see now as the worst explanation possible. I wasn't disgusted by the idea, and as months passed i found myself thinking about it more and more. I eventually fell into it, reading the wikis and dictionaries. That lead me to here.

That reminds me, a friend of mine made a joke about the furries once (negative of course), but I'm kind of convinced she is one.

I found the fandom through animations back when I was in third grade, I think. I saw a bunch of videos of fursuit dancers and I really liked Telephone. Though, I didn't actually say I was a part of the fandom until this year, even though I had a fursona for a while.

All my friends just love to talk negative about furries. Their claims are completely irrational, but I can't correct them without making it seem like I'm one.

You have to admit, some of the negative feedback is just ridiculous. Sometimes i almost burst out laughing when i hear.

to do something you have to belive in it.
if you dont belive in it, think that you will fall down and break your legs, then don't do it

TBH, it was actually at complete random. I knew I liked such things liked anthro games and the related, but I didn't discover the fandom until I clicked random article on Wikipedia and got "Furry Fandom".

I've always liked anthro characters, but kind of kept away from them because I thought the fandom was supposed to be gross or something. I also cared a lot about what people thought of me a couple years ago, so I didn't want to associate myself with anything that got a bad rep like furries. However, it was my friend sending me furry "cringe" memes that actually got me curious.

I did a bit of research because I was morbidly curious why people hated them so much, and found out that most of the fandom was actually really cool. I spent several months just watching furry youtubers or looking at cool characters, and eventually I ended up here, a place to actually be active.

1 word: IMVU.

When I was too young to understand anything. I basically just liked the furry avatars and start associating with them.
Terrible times. But hey, I'm here now.

I first heard about it on deviantArt in 2010. I admired it from a distance, but didn't really get involved until 2014, when Vine was big.
