Was just reading a thread over at the Ukfur forums and thought I'd throw it out over here too as we have a more diverse British majority site would yeild.
People always comment on how the two sides of the pond have different approaches to furry, with different structures or different forms of furry expression.
I'd like to try to avoid stereotypes too if possible, but ask that if they do come up they be handled maturely rather than a decent into flame wars.
to get started i have noticed that among American friends there seems to be a much larger emphasis and focus on conventions in the U fandom than the uk, but I guess that can be attributed to the much more vast disbursement of furries there as opposed to here.
In the uk we have frequent local meets and are the most densely packed population of furries in Europe, with some local meets being handled by elected committees and held monthly at regular hired locations.
While we have our cons, there's much less exitement about them than elsewhere around the globe purely because we get to meet up on a regular basis.
