Okay, *NOW* I have exact percentages *grins broadly*

Well... I never answered the question (public forum concerns again), so
it may not be exact. But it is substantial regardless.

No, we shouldn't ignore, alienate, or hate anyfur fur what they do or who
they are. We should ACCEPT EVERYFUR for what they are, I'm talking about
the person inside not the shallow facade that most people (furs) put on to
get everyone to accept them.
I do, I have found that if I accept somefur for what they are and not who
they are, they are more likely to become a long-time friend.
I hate (yes, I do hate somethings) all of this bickering, flamming or
whatever title you want to assign to it. PLEASE just accept people (furs)
for what they are. Don't hate them or reject them for because of their
beliefs, or POVs. It's just plain stupid. Enough said.

The question I think is whether sexuality is intrinsically part of
being furry, or whether it is merely compatible. And if it is the
latter, maybe it should be more on the periphery of discussion and
less on ceneter stage. I'm not denouncing sexuality. (That would
sure make me a hypocrite!) But I do have to wonder about how it does
seem to sometimes dominate some of these identity debates about what
it means to be a furry. Often sexuality seems to occlude other aspects
of life in discussions. While I do wear my "fur Pride" and "zeta"
pins at conventions, and do have an active sex life, I am leary about
identify sexuality to strongly with being furry. I just let it be
known some other interests I have; afterall, it can be presumed most
folks at furry cons are furries.
Maybe the whole thing about being a zoophile or not being gay or not,
being vanilla or not, is just not particularly relevant to being furry
or not. Some folks want to read comic books, others want to go to
truth or dare parties. Neither of these activities really have much
to do with being a furry, per se. They just are things more fun for
some of us if they have a furry flavor to them. Nothing more, IMHO.
I just don't know, but I have a hunch that we folks on ALF have other
things in common that we could talk about. Not knocking talking about
sexuality though... just when such talks degenerates in to flaming, it
makes me cringe. Just thought I would add my two cents worth.

Integration, right? I really like the way you put this, Galen.
