Thread: Can someone explain furries for me?

  1. #1

    Default Can someone explain furries for me?

    I find furries a bit unusual, and a bit weird, but so is having a diaper fetish so I don't judge in that aspect, I just want to understand why furries are furries and what furries are?

    I just gather there people who like to dress up as animals and role play? It's just one of those things that has me a bit interested in what they are.

    So I have a few questions.

    What are furries?
    What are diaper furs?

    Why do they wear full on animal suits, why do some just wear little ears and be like cats?

    Is it a childhood thing, like diapers, why is it so popular compared to diapers?

    Is it that they want to be cute animals? or is it just a frame of mind, (like being little) and just simply wanting to be in a animal frame of mind?

    Just curious, don't take this as an attack or anything, I'm interested in understanding furries a bit more, I only know a little information on them.

    I find it unusual as I'm not a furry, in the same way that non-littles and non-ABDLs find diapers and diaper fetishism weird / unusual. (I don't hate it or anything) It's just interesting. I'm interested in learning a little about it.

    That being said I've noticed a lot of negative press / hate more towards furries than ab/dls so that kind of has me interested in learning more about furries and what they are since the AB/DL community and furries can cross over I suppose, ie diaperfurs.

    A good place to start: wikipedia

    The term "furry" is a little bit nebulous because it is so broad and inclusive, but basically it's someone who likes anthropomorphic non-human characters and takes one on as their "fursona". Usually they're anthropomorphic versions of real animals like foxes (think Disney's Robin Hood, or Nick Wilde from Zootopia), but they can also be fictional creatures like dragons (that don't even have any fur!). I have a friend whose fursona is a "weretiger". By and large, the subculture leans toward an interest in cuteness, and hugs are more common than handshakes (pawshakes?). The fursuits are a way for them to embody and express their fursona more directly, by coming as close as humanly possible to living as their fursona. It's not terribly different in that respect from LARPing, except it's in a social setting rather than playing a RPG, and the characteristics of the costume are much more personal and customized.

    Do they want to be cute (anthropomorphic) animals? Well, some do, some just like to play the role. There's a lot of variation within the furry community so it's hard to make generalizations. I hope this helps a little. ^.^

    What are diaper furs?
    Diaper lovers who are also furries.



    Why do they wear full on animal suits, why do some just wear little ears and be like cats?
    That's pretty much the closest way for a person to actually become their fursona, but it is a preference. Also, fursuits are really expensive.



    Is it a childhood thing, like diapers, why is it so popular compared to diapers?
    Because animals are cute, which is a more common opinion than liking diapers.



    Is it that they want to be cute animals? or is it just a frame of mind, (like being little) and just simply wanting to be in a animal frame of mind?
    It's mostly for roleplaying like I said, so this is pretty much correct.



    That being said I've noticed a lot of negative press / hate more towards furries than ab/dls so that kind of has me interested in learning more about furries and what they are since the AB/DL community and furries can cross over I suppose, ie diaperfurs.
    Because we're all just genuinely awful of people who whine and push their interests on other people, babyfurs who go to cons and mess in public, people who actually want to fuck animals, and straight-up stupid people, and they all give us a bad name.

    Ah, yeah I understand that every community has a small group of "sickos" who make the entire group look worse than they actually are, ie bronies and cloppers which give the impression the whole group are sickos when it's only 1-2 people.

    I guess pamperchu is an extreme example of a sicko making the entire AB/DL community look bad for example.

    I'm new to interacting with the ABDL scene online but for some reason, "pamperchu" still sounds eerily familiar. Who was pamperchu?

    This fruitloop, famous for microwaving used diapers and reusing them (sheesh no wonder he got cancer).

    Happy reading...

    Pretty sure you're thinking of Otherkins or Therians.

    This is mostly true.

    Okay, I feel as if I should make a distinction here, for the OP's sake. This is not what the furry fandom is about and does not encourage nor support that type of behaviour. Those people are an overlap from another subculture that for some god-awful reason feel the need to try and normalize Zoophilic or Beastiality type bahaviour in the furry fandom. Just ignore them, they do not represent the broader community.

    Wow. I didn't have to dig very deep into that link to immediately see your point! In a way though, it sort of makes me feel a little better about myself. I'm not nearly as freaky as I thought!

    Pamperchu was just f(....)ng weird. That gross bastard should not even be on YouTube. Other ABDL that are way better are Mid America Little and Little Loli Kat. Just type in those names and their channels will immediately pop up.

    I wonder if I may have run into his content on photo sites. I don't think he was one of the poor pasties makers, like Darth Monkey.

    Not exactly correct.

    A furry by definition is a person with an interest in anthropomorphic animals. It does not necessarily have anything to do with ''identifying'' with an animal.
