Furries is an offensive term!

:iconlordofthesofa:
LordOfTheSofa Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2004
*sigh* Hello. My name is LordOfTheSofa. And I am an anthro artist admirer. Though I am NOT a fetishist.

In my opinion, depending on who's saying it and in what way, "furry" is a derogatory term on the level of calling one of African descent a "n-word".

Please. Have some respect for us. VCL? Isolated cases.

Maybe I'm addressing a dead issue, but the term "furries" now seems somewhat derogatory to me. Perhaps it was because of some former friends of mine I used to associate with, but that's a different story.

Thank you.

Isn't there a difference between Anthros and Furries? :roll:

Yes, I believe furries have a slightly different colour pelt than anthros.

I think I was more or less trying to say that...But with everyone yelling at me now I can't remember. :confused: x_x

Threadkill, please, Sai-Sai, so that people will stop berating me, regardless of how much I may have been asking for it?

Eh...Maybe it just picked up an offensive connotation to me.

To me and some of my friends, it sort of has grown to imply yiff, or the weird stuff that sometimes pops up at VCL.

I dunno...*sigh* Like I said...Any admins that see this, please delete the thread for me...

I dunno. Whenever I hear the term, I usually imagine people running around with fake bunny ears and stuff... not animal porn

:lmao: please tell me your kidding...that is a dumbest thing I have ever heard, dude furry is just a word used to describe something that has fur, you most certainly cannot apply it to people no matter how foxfire snuffikins of the high blood clan insists that people who like anthros are 'furrys'.

No. The term "furry" is not on the same level as "nigger". :|

To anthro artists it might be. =|

Well, I used to draw furry-related artwork. But I was never offended by the word "furry"...

...That one's not as psychotic. But it's weirder and harder to keep track of.

What I'm saying is that I'm willing to bet a LOT of people would use something BESIDES that. x_x Then again, I've seen even people who draw anthro art use the term, so like I said---it depends on who's talking.

You're an idiot. It's a word used to describe followers of an artstyle, it's not as bad as a word that has been used as a racist word for a couple of hundred years.

If you take offense to it this badly then you need to seek help.

I meant offensive in the same way, if not the same degree. Sorry. :roll:

Say what you mean when you say it, not afterwards when you're being shown the flaws in your logic.

This is why I prefer real-life convos to forums---my thought process gets overloaded less quickly.

*still waits for an admin to kill the thread...hopefully mercifully.*
