I wondered if I could come up with a fursona myself but it really isn't my thing. of course I thought it was weird at first and of course every community has issues but I bet that sense of belonging is really lovely.

I’m still somewhat uncomfortable with saying I’m neurodivergent, and I’m (especially now) quite sensitive to sensory stimulation and I’ve never realized that my fursuit likely helps with it.

    3. People on the internet take it to the extreme and turn it into a circlejerk by spamming obnoxious comments.

    I have been a little down lately because some people at school found out I'm a furry and can't see past that,even though I'm nice to them. I'm glad someone more mainstream is getting the truth out so that hopefully,less people like me get bullied,especially if it can save lives. Idk how recently this happened,but two furry kids k*lled themselves because they were being bullied,and if there is someone out there with a good amount of subscribers who has made a video,an HONEST video about furries,then hopefully more people see that,and the less bullying there is.

  • PeppyBreyer88
    PeppyBreyer88 Vor 3 Tage +2

    I put off watching this video for so long. I’m a furry. I’m always terrified seeing any videos on us because 9 times out of 10 it’s just bullying and tearing our hobby to shreds. I’m so and I mean so grateful that Kurtis did his research. With the platform he has I think this can actually make an impact. He covers tons of info which is all correct. We are simply people who think animal oc’s are cool. Our costumes are no different than a cosplayer. I personality decided to start making suits because I saw videos of furries going to fun runs and hospitals and watching kids faces light up seeing a life size stuffed animal walk over to them. That’s what I want. Most people just do this for fun. Some people make a character that is more confident than themselves, or has characteristics that they want to achieve to help them become who they want to be. Some people like myself are very socially anxious and really struggle with social cues, so being able to walk around as a dragon or dog and not worry about that and just have fun is so much less stressful. Some people use it to test the limits on their creative abilities in terms of sculpture and sewing. It’s just a creative outlet and hobby. A good chunk of the fandom are kids as well and it’s so messed up that peoples first thought is that it’s a kink or sexual thing. It’s far from it. Like in any hobby people are going to be weird but it’s so sad that furries have been generalized like that. If I’m going to leave this with anything please just treat the people around you with respect. If you see a furry, feel free to come up to us and say hi or ask for a picture, we love it. If not, it’s totally cool to just walk by. Please don’t sneak pictures of us and laugh under your breath or intentionally go out of your way to make fun of us. If you don’t have anything nice to say just leave us alone. If you see someone walking around with ears and a tail don’t tug on them or take their stuff just ignore them. You wouldn’t go tear someone’s earrings out or pull their jacket because you think it’s funny. No matter what there will always be people under the mask and I just wish people respected that more. Kurtis, if you happen to see this, I don’t think you’ll ever understand how much this video means to us. Positive media on us is so rare it’s sad. It’s gotten a lot better over the years but it still sucks. People fail to do a base level of research and just believe whatever they hear online and it’s led to some extremely harmful stereotypes for us. From the bottom of our hearts we thank you ❤

    Thank you so much for talking about this in a neutral, non-judgemental way! It really means a lot coming from a bigger creator ^^
    But yeah cringe culture is waaayyy too extreme and it certainly does often feel like an attack on neurodivergent / LGBT+ people for being 'different' or showing behaviours that aren't deemed normal in society. It's definitely harmful and only makes people feel bad for just wanting to be themselves.

    I'm a cisgender, straight, female furry. Needless to say, I'm the extreme minority in my fandom. However, never once have I been treated any differently, or (oddly enough) fit in better with any other group of people. Furries are friendly, happy, joyful, and fun people who have trauma and scars that a fursona helps them leave behind. I'm so glad I found them. Thank you for this video.

    I think furries are a bit "cringe," but it's worth asking what's wrong with being cringe?
    I think the problem is when you involve unwilling participants in your cringe (like the store clip there) but being cringy in your own spaces with your own people is just called having a good time
    We all have our own cringe aspects, anyone who doesn't is probably fairly bland

    You can also have a fursona without being a furry! I'm one of those people, my sona is a little fox. She's not anthropomorphic and I don't want a suit of her or anything, but I draw her to vent as a representation of my emotions. I've done it since I was a little kid and I used to think was weird for doing it but when I learned about furries I felt less alone. I couldn't believe there was a word (fursona) for this weird thing that I did and that other people did the same thing!

    On the topic of cringe things we've done in our pasts: I didn't get a lot of signatures in my yearbook in 6th grade (or during any year after that to be honest), so I just faked a ton of signatures from anyone I might have known at least by name so I would look like I had way more friends than I did. Tried using different handwriting styles and everything. I can guarantee you THAT is more cringe than any furry who's just living life and being themselves will ever be.

    I'm glad to see Kurtis making a new video on this topic he's already done before, and I appreciate a lot of the points he made in it. I think it's important to remember that everyone is cringe, every person on earth right now has probably thought in the shower about something stupid they've done in the past, and we can all change. Doing something "cringe" doesn't make you a bad person, and it doesn't make the whole community you're in "cringey" either.

    it's just weird how people actively hating all the furries and their community just because things they don't agree, like not all of them like that but they keep turning blind eye and keep saying "all of them is bad!" ... like sure say what you want about a problem of zoophilia, etc etc that done by minority of the community but the very problem you tried to point out is like happening in general public and like global around the world, so the point of trying to cancel whole furries because of that is like you tried cancel muslim for their minority act on bombing, or just a minority race being racist or religion forcing everything even violence when no one want to follow their cult....
    but I guess people always hate all the good apples when there's one rotting between them, so technically all my word will just like hitting a brick wall definitely not worth it to talk with them... I want to curse them but probably could hurt their itty bitty nonexisted heart and brain

    im autistic+adhd and i have tourettes. i was waiting until you bring up how a lot of furries are autistic, and how the furry community is full of autistic folk who don't relate to humans and relate to animals instead. being able to make an anthro animal character we can insert ourselves into, it helps us cope with the fact we feel different than other humans. we tend to relate to other animals or fictional species, like vampires or werewolves. for a lot of autistic furries, it is our special interest, and it brings us together, a group of people who feel completely cut off from other (neurotypical) people. by the way, cringe culture as a whole is basically just people severely bullying autistic kids, and cringe culture has traumatized me and changed how I thought as a CHILD. people hated me for existing. just because we are different doesn't mean that we try to do the things everyone else thinks are disrespectful, mean or weird.

    I met the first furry in my life (that I am aware of) recently. I work in a hospital in which he was a patient. In human form. He had a fanny pack with a cartoon furry on it and gave out stickers with cartoon images of his fursona. It was obvious due to the design and art style. When he gave me one I asked him whether he is a furry, which made him quite happy and prompted him to give me his furry „business card“: „you just met a proud member of the furry fandom. You might take this opportunity to question whether you are taking life too seriously“. Rather nice and kinda wholesome

    This video was f***ing hilarious!
    It always makes me smile when a person online openly supports furries, and takes time to learn about and understand them. Especially when they have a considerable following.
    I am somewhat shamed to admit that I found furries as cringe when I first hear about them in late very early 2020. But that's because it was in an r/entitledparents video where there was a story about a mother who went with their kid to a convention threw a fit because their kid was denied to an event happening in a hotel room. And that event was an orgy. (That mother's an idiot.) The people involved told them that there were plenty of family-friendly event at the main venue, and that _that_ one was 18+. So yeah, I found out through the sexual side too. But I started looking into it more roughly a year and a half later in summer, 2021, and I've been an ally ever since, until summer 2022 where I'm basically an honorable member. Yeah, it can be a slippery slope. I might come out to myself any day now. XD I'd be the uncommon asexual furry if that happens. But, too be fair, straight furries are pretty uncommon too. I hear roughly 40% alone are bisexual, with homosexual making a huge 2nd place demographic.
    And I'll just clear something up that wasn't in the video. NOT ALL FURRIES ARE Z**PHILES! Only a small minority are proven to be. I've heard one furry say it's like 30%. I'm pressing "X" to doubt a thousand times. The absolute highest I'm willing to go, and this is suspending my disbelief all the way into the Ionosphere, 10%. On any given day, I'm not willing to go over 4%. That 30% is very likely someone who was and anti-furry undercover to make the fandom look bad, or they just found themselves in the wrong side of the community. I say the latter because z**philes are almost always shunned by the fandom if word gets out, so they tend to stick together. If you find one, you'll easily find more. The actual numbers are impossible to get, because if you're interviewing furries to get said numbers, you'll almost always encounter obstacles. Poll in person, and people who are actually into that sh*t are likely to say "no" because of social stigma. They don't want to be outcasted. Poll anonymously online, and you'll face trolls and haters trying to make the numbers appear higher than they actually are.
    If I do turn out to be a furry, no big surprise. I can really appreciate the art, and some of it is f***ing amazing with how good and high-quality it is. But I also meet a lot of trends that tend to be common in the community. I'm on the spectrum, very likely neurodivergent to a degree, introverted, and physically sensitive to thing like touch. (I think that last one is common in the community, don't quote me on that specific point though.) I tend to like soft, warm, and fuzzy surfaces on my skin. I can't wear jeans, because I hate the feeling of denim. It looks good, but it's too rough for me.
    I just hope I get my answer soon. I hate being trapped in neutral zones with things like this. Quizzes were barely any help because out of 5 of them, 3 gave me "maybes" and "possiblies." And I also got 1 no, and 1 yes. Lastly, I know the definition varies from person to person, that's what irritates me. You can identify as not being a furry, even if all other signs point to yes, and you're not one. But I would like a set definition otherwise. Everyone seems to have there own definition. So, here I go!
    My definition of being a furry: "Having an increased interest in anthropomorphic animals, often but not always to the point of creating a fursona to help the individual in question to express themself."
    By that definition, I guess I would fall into it. Although I have no fursona, I have occasionally tossed ideas for one around in my head.
    Sorry for the novel I wrote. I'm just passionate about making sure innocent people aren't misunderstood. Z**philes can either choose to seek mental help, or go jump of a bridge though.

      @Kieran just because you dont want to label yourself doesnt mean others shouldnt or that its weird or "fancy" neurodivergent is a descriptor term. its scientific aswell and encapsulates every time of neurodivergency. (autism, adhd, personality disorders, tic disorders, possibly more im blanking on)
      autisitic isnt the only way to be neurodivergent. and not everyone who is ND knows what makes them ND or dont want to constantly share their diagnostic term such as autistic. especially for people such as myself who are neurodivergent in several ways. (adhd, autism, avoidant personality disorder, and dependant personality disorder traits.)
      theres nothing wrong with flashing your neurodivergency. nor is there anything wrong with it potentionally making someone feel special.
      labels make people feel happy, comfortable, and its an easy way to explain your situation and normalize talk of neurodivergencies.
      just because you dont want to use the term does not and should never mean other people cant or shouldnt. and especially does not mean it should be left to psychology. this is how ableism and misinformation spread. it is good to talk about these things, good to be open, and good to advocate for yourself.

      Yep! I’m autistic and ADHD, and super super into anime and manga. When I was a teenager I was bullied heavily for being weird (this was loooong before cringe culture and social media outside early Facebook and MySpace…god that makes me feel old). In normal life I felt like an alien. I couldn’t express my special interests without being shut down and hurt. But, my god, when I went to MCM in London and wore cosplay I felt so accepted and happy. The day wore me out but I didn’t want to leave.
      Unfortunately, shortly after my 19th birthday I overheard my parents laughing at what I enjoyed and I basically shelved it, trying hard to suppress everything and stopped indulging in what I enjoyed. My mental health spiralled and I had breakdowns basically every week. Until I hit this year. I’m now 27, and just this year I’ve watched maybe 30? Anime series this year. I’ve got back into drawing in more ‘anime’ styles and even found a love of learning Japanese (now working towards my N5 JLPT).
      Seeing how furries are treated reminds me of how miserably I was treated by people who didn’t understand at all, and I only have love for the people who let themselves indulge in what they love -as long as they’re not hurting anyone-.

    honestly super cool video kurtis. i grew up 'on the internet' as an only child & did a lot of digital art and was on a lot of forum & art websites, which had a ton of furries on them- i now realize this was not the norm for like everywhere on the internet lol- but they were all super sweet people!! I NEVER remember seeing anything sexual, much less being persuaded/bullied/etc - they were all super nice & helpful and i liked animals a lot as a kid (not in a furry way lol i just liked drawing them & knowing facts about them and such) and so they basically taught me how to draw/practice drawing all sorts of animals. i remember you could ask someone to "redline" a sketch - where you would draw something, and then someone would suggest edits in red to help you improve, and then you could take that & work with it to improve your drawing, proportions, etc. we would do that all the time & idk they were just super chill people and also probably a lot of other funky queer neurodivergent kids just having fun drawing colorful foxes that realized there's a whole community out there that's way nicer than most people

    There's a difference between laughing/cringing versus hating someone. It's ok to dislike the concept of furries, but it's not ok to harass or hate others just because they're furries. I mean they aren't hurtinganyone. I will also say that I too was influenced as a kid into believing that furries were a sex thing--definitely didn't help that I was on Deviantart a lot.

    I also watched 1000 ways to die when I was a kid and 100% thought they were reenactments of real deaths. I was so afraid that I would die in some random way (and they would reenact my death) and didn't realize until last year majority were made up.. I'm 24

    Another good video! I also thought furries were predominantly a sex thing from 1000 ways to die lol. Thank you for looking this up!

    It's kind of ironic that a lot of the internet hates furries considering the internet itself would fall apart without them. Litterally. It is actually insane how many people in tech are furries.

    I’m autistic, I’m not a furry but I love furries. Usually they’re just people like me who have a special interest in cosplaying and anthro animals. Furries, especially autistic furries are the coolest people and I usually get along with them.

    The fact that most cringe compilations are people that sit on reddit 16 hours a day, making fun of people just trying to enjoy themselves is pretty telling

      @-- this is just another self righteous outcry they need to do to feel good about themselves. Shaming people is not always unnecessary. Youd shame a weeb, a bts stan, etc but furries is the one youre gonna root for?...sure..

      @T "The opposing side" you mean the people minding their own business trying to live their lives? The fact that you see the people being attacked for their hobbies as the opposition only further proves how stupid cringe culture is.

    Okay but 1000 ways to die constantly TERRIFIED me. I always thought I’d somehow end up dying in the most absurd ways. I remember the Typhoid Mary episode and refusing to eat Portuguese food my mom got because I thought I would get typhoid and die from it? Typhoid Mary was Irish!

    the furries feeling loved in these comments is everything for me you guys are adorable and if my kids saw you out on the street they would likely have a million questions and think you’re the coolest ever :)

    it’s an established rule of thumb that 90% of furries out there are scientists and engineers and doctors and shit like that for some reason

  • get in the EVA right now

    Finally. I'm so tired of the whole cringe culture thing, and how it constantly picks on A LOT of neurodivergent people. Fandons are normally a safe place for us and as someone on the spectrum who takes part on the anime fandom, people also tear us apart every single time. It has come to the point i feel ashamed af for just liking things (and for having some weird hyperfixations).
    Anyways: i'm cringe but at least i'm free 🌠

    There’s an episode of CSI where the case is set in a furry convention and it’s like 2009 so they explain furries and everything but bc furry culture wasn’t as widespread as it is now, everyone was in like low budget mascot costumes instead of like the fur suits people have now and for some reason that small difference made it SO MUCH SCARIER. I can’t explain it but I see a fur suit and I’m like oh yeah that’s just a furry but I see the soulless expression of a mascot costume and I’m like oh that’s a murderer.
