- What is the Furry Fandom?
- What is Furry Art about?
Look to this video for some basic knowledge:
- What is a furry? - It's not a straight forward answer. The "Furry" Fandom is comprised of artists, performers, and writers who all share a common interest in the Idea of the Anthropomorphic animal. Some create art and literature based on an alternate persona or "Fursona". Although not many in the fandom participate, "Fursuiting" is a prominent part of the hobby, where furry fans will dress up as their fursonas.
- So what is Anthro then? - Anthropomorphics, or Anthro, is when an animal or object exhibits human-like characteristics. This can range from standing on 2 feet, wearing clothing, or speaking.
- I still don't understand... Why do you guys do this stuff? - It's fun! In quoting Dr. Samuel "Uncle Kage" Conway, "If you go to a Furry Convention, you will see White people, Black people, Asian people, Arabic people, Muslims, Jews, Hindus, Christians, Atheists, you will see rich people, poor people, young, old; an amazing mixture of people; and when we are here, nobody sees ANY of those differences. We come here and all we see is another Furry. In this little culture of ours, we have found the diversity that America has been after for so many years but could never grasp, and we found it just by being ourselves."
- NO OFFTOPIC CHATTER - It is the reason we were locked last time. This thread is here for discussion of Art and Furry Culture ONLY.
- DON'T RESPOND TO TROLLS/ANTI-FURRY POSTERS - They are just trying to bait you. Instead, just report them. DON'T try to explain the fandom to them and DON'T try to argue with them. Just report them and move on.
- NO YIFF/NSFW POSTS - srsly. No. It gives us that don't want anything to do with that part of the fandom a bad rap. I myself absolutely hate that part of our social group. Keep it clean here. Clean is nice.
