I've had several fursonas in the past, but it's been years and years since I've really actually used any of them. I just didn't really have a reason to. Back in the day when I was young and inexperienced and couldn't draw people I would use my 'sona of the time to represent myself in comics and such. But now I'm comfortable drawing myself as a human, so the need for a fursona just...went away.
But tbh I was watching furry videos on YouTube
because I'm trash
actually wait you know what, no. I'm done with that schtick. I've been low-key ashamed of my interests for too long, be it anime or next-gens or MLP or whatever else, and I'm done calling myself trash or a loser for liking them. It's sunk too deeply into my mind and contributes to serious enough problems to warrant medication, and I need to stop.
I know a lot of those groups have negative stereotypes associated with them, and I will say right here and now that I am NOT interested in the sexual side of any of them. I find that gross. But the problem is porn, not magic ponies or anthropomorphic animals or OCs. And most of the time, the deviant side of any fandom is a minority. I am not part of that particular minority.
-whew- Well, now that I have that heavy bit off my chest. Yes, I was watching some furry videos on YouTube and I felt inspired to revamp my fursona for the first time in years. Will I actually use her much like I did in middle school? Idk yet; I guess we'll see. But it was fun to design nevertheless, and that's what it's all about: having fun. Haters gonna hate.
Do I consider myself a furry now? Not necessarily. I guess it depends on how you define "furry". I'm not really involved in the "fandom" beyond having a fursona (though I will admit that I think fursuiting looks like fun). But...meh. I'll leave that up to y'all.spaceCanine
