Wow...I just realised I was a furry O.o. It's been a daily part of my life for a few years now so it feels normal  ^^

Art's and concepts - It can be fun representing yourself as a non human for a bit of fun
I WOULD say community/the people, but it's covered with: 'anti-human' feelings (This is a BIG pet peeve of mine), therian/otherkin stuff (Can't help but find it silly), 'lifestyle furs', and yiff (vomits). I like furries on the whole, but there are large parts of the fandom, and beliefs held by some of them I want absolutely nothing to do with - obviously, you are entitled to draw and believe whatever you want, but it's all way out of my territory, and in reality, it IS a large part of the fandom. The people at Furry Teens seem to void a lot of this most of the time though, which is cool - a lot of interesting threads/discussions do come up here, afterall.
The fandom is never something I took in a serious stride, which is good for me being in FT, since it is pretty much drama-free, unlike a lot of adult sites

The porn
I mean

no.

I joined the fandom for the fursuits, really. I know it's weird but the idea of getting in a giant animal costume and being crazy appeals to me a lot :> I'm still oh so desperate for one haha.

Now? I'm in it for the amazing friends I've made, the fantastic artists, the adorable works, the floofly fursuits, and that nice warm fuzzy feeling that you get from being around furries. We're a great big family here, no matter how much we fight amoung ourselves. I like it like that c:

Plus where else can I be a sparkling fennec fox and not be called weird. c8

This forum really. It's the only furry site that I've been on that isn't overly dramatic and is friendly. I like the sense of community here and how open I can be with others. I also like the art and the fursuits and stuff but I don't know if that would be enough to make me stay in the fandom if I hadn't found a nice place like FT

      I don't know what keeps me in the society honestly. Somedays, the society seems like a glorious community that is warm and welcoming. Other times, I despise the furry society for treating some people like they're worthless for ridiculous reason, or when the perverted members show their true colors. I have bi-polar feelings of the furry society. It depends on the people I happen to find. I've met some great people while I've met some mean bullies. One of the greatest disturbances I've ever seen is the countless adultrey of the society. It doesn't matter to some if you're in a relationship with anyone. You can still be with someone else at the same time. I've even come across full groups on Kik before with no prior warning of entire crowds courting eachother. It's absdurd! I guess what keeps me here is hope and the good people that I've meet over the years. I don't why this society is so diverse when it comes to morality, but I guess that when we're no longer animals, but humans. There's always a few that try to ruin a good thing.

The creativity really, even if I decided not to be a furry anymore i'd still participate in the fandom because of how creative and diverse it is, also the fact that my social life is now centered around the fandom and it helped me get out of my shell a bit so it only feels right to stick around^^

The art, the community, the creativity, the characters, animals, the ability to express myself and be who I am. This really is a great fandom, and I'm so glad to be a part of the wonderful community that it is.
