My brother says he don't think I am a Fur because he heard people talking about
Furs on the radio and the people on the radio were claiming Furries were
"people who dressed up in animal costumes, and fucked each other"(Pardon the
language. Just saying it as he said it) I thought that was stupid, but I did
want to ask this though: Am I considered a Fur? The reason I ask is because, I
don't believe I'm an animal trapped in a human body. I don't really want to
become part animal all too much (except having a tail). The only thing Fur-like
to me is, I love a fox woman and want one as a mate in the next life if
possible, since its not possible to create her in this life. Does that make me
a Fur at all? I think so, but I'm not too sure on these things, as I never
really paid too much attention to Furries and their ways other than myself
(whom I believe to be a furry)

Whether you are a furry is up to your own judgement, but don't use that
definition - it's wrong.

I second Delve's idea of not using that definition... But either way, there
really isn't any set concept of what a furry is. I don't think I'm an animal
in a human body either, but I consider myself to be a fur. (And BTW, I plan
to get my first attachable tail SOON!) I guess it all depends on whether or
not you'd like to be associated with a large, diverse group of people that
the media seems to enjoy focusing on a small part of (and radio is a part of
the media, in case you didn't know).

Well to answer, it's best to use a jeff foxworthy system..

If you are fan of anthropomorphic characters, <Bugs Bunny> you might be
a furry.

If you a fan of talking animals, <Lady and the tramp> you might be a
furry.

If you identify yourself with real animals, <barking, howling,
growling> you might be a furry.

If you want to be an animal, you might be a furry.

If you think you are a werewolf, or other supernatural furred critter,
you might be a furry.

If you have a totem animal, or guardian animal spirit, you might be a
furry.

If you believe, we should use genenetic tech and cloning to uplift
animals to a sentiant state, you might be a furry.

If you enjoy, creating and preforming in fursuit, you might be a furry.

Personally I think that if you think you're a fur then, yes, you're a fur. Of

it's a wholly personal experience while at the same time it can be shared,
to a degree, by all furs. To a greater or lesser degree, naturally.
But no, Delve's right, don't listen to the radio on this one.

Yah, his definition is pretty narrow... most furs don't own
fursuits to begin with. There is plenty of sex, so I hear, but that
doesn't make one furry ;)

The way I look at it, you are a Fur if you think you are. Its a
pretty open collective of folks with as many different spins on being
furry. Hang around with furries for a while and see if you fit in :)

Oh, believe me, it's not *just* the radio that has stupid people. You've
probably heard of a little thing called freedom of the press, right?

Anyways, now that you know, why not tell us a little about yourself?

Great minds think alike.

If you sleep on the same side of the bed every night, because the
plushies occupy the other half...
You might be a furry

If you bark at your friends, but talk to your pets...
You might be a furry

If you've got a large collection of Disney movies, but no kids...
You might be a furry

If you think Minerva Mink, Krystal, or Colleen are hot (and if you
don't, what the hell's wrong with you!?)...
You might be a furry

If you've ever had a fantasy about a wild yiff fest with any of the
above (or even better, all 3)...
You might be a furry

If you've ever worn your tail and collar to the mall or to Wal-Mart,
and it wasn't halloween...
You might be a furry (and you've got cast-iron balls besides)

If you had to buy a bigger hard drive to hold all the yiff...
You might be a furry

And finally, if you think fan boys are sexy...
You're not a fur, you're just fucked up

Thank you and goodnight.

I wear my tail to the mall (and every where else) all the time and all
though I would never let other people dictate the way I live my life I
doubt any one would ever sugest that I have cast-iron balls.

What would you like to know about me? I have no idea what to say. If its about
Furriness, ever since I was a kid, I had fantasies about being in a world where
the animals could talk and do other human-like things. I always wanted a dog
that could talk and wanted characters in movies such as (mainly in my childhood
through grade school) Lady and the Tramp, to be real. Eventually, I saw a movie
called "The Little Fox" or sometimes called "Vuk" and started to become a huge
fan of foxes somehow, to the point of where I got a pet fox I had for a while.
I wanted a male to name Vik, like in the Little Fox movie, but they only had a
female and the farm/zoo that I got her from, so I went with Vixey as the name
of her (like the Fox and the Hound). After a year of having Vixey, I had to
give her up to a wildlife reserve which nearly destroyed me. I sometimes didn't
get along with Vixey with her being wild and all, and one time she did bite me
to the point of needing stitches, but we always somehow managed to forgive each
other. I lied at the hospital where I got stitched, telling them I got cut by
glass to save Vixey. I suddenly started to think I wanted "a fox that could
understand me" (well, understand better) but I knew it was impossible, until
cloning came along, I thought I had a shot at this fantasy vixen. I thought
cloning involved taking cells from the creature being cloned, and putting in
one of those glass capsules to grow into a being (like in cartoons and SciFi
movies), but found out through a friend that knows stuff about cloning shot
that dream down, by telling me, artificial wombs don't exsit yet (which I
proved her and some other people to be wrong, though the artificial womb
doesn't work well) and that cloning creates a baby, and even if an adult were
created, she would have the mind of a child. I had the wrong idea at first,
because I wanted this vixen cloned from my ex-pet fox, and me which would have
been wrong because it would have been like I had my sister or daughter as a
mate, and they might not even be able to clone a female being from a male being
like me (athough since Vixey was a female fox, I wonder what a cloned hybrid
being would turn out to be). I later decided I wanted to have Sandy Duncan give
the human half of this vixen (sorry, but I can't resist that Vixey voice in the
Fox and the Hound) and since my Vixey's fur was no longer alive that she
sheded, which I kept, I would have needed a different fox donor as well. (I
doubt Sandy Duncan would have given that human DNA to me for such a project
anyway, athough I would have offered money, and possibly begged her for it as
well) I actually got mentioned in that "Wired" magazine about wanting this
vixen created. I also heard that scientists said she was "highly improbable at
best". So now, this woman (the one who killed the dream) was telling me I would
be happy in Heaven, than as I said in that other post, I asked her if I would
get this vixen in Heaven to be happy, and she said I would if she made me
happy. Athough I kind of have a fear that I might have my mind wiped to forget
the vixen if there is an afterlife.

Okay, I'm done sounding crazy. I don't know if anyone here could relate to me,
but it would be nice to know if there is anyone in the same boat.

Insofar as wanting things that we can't have and wanting to be what we
cannot be, at least in this life, I'm certain that there are those who can
relate somewhat to this. There have been times in my life when I was quite
willing to dump everything just for the chance to become my pheno{s}, so I
think I can kinda see where you're coming from anyway.
As for crazy... well if we're speaking in terms of the afterlife {supposing
there is one, of course} then it doesn't seem any crazier than some of the
things others have come up with. And who knows, /if/ there is an afterlife
it could very well be that such a thing will happen.
I am somewhat curious to know how you got the fox-if you don't mind
telling. I've been looking into obtaining a skunk myself. Because if it's
either /that/ or a becoming coat they're at least better off with someone
who'll take care of 'em! And while there are domestic skunks in the U.S.
there are maybe five states* where they're legal to possess. So this is just
me being nosey again...

*Naturally if I had my way this wouldn't even be an issue as I don't care
much for the idea of unnecessary domestication. Skunks are far better off
in the wild. But my opinion is about 100 years too late... *sigh*

There was a zoo/farm about 45 minutes from here where I got my fox from. They
sold everything. Skunks, raccoons, bears, wolves, foxes, coyotes. I actually
applied for a Michigan Department of Natural Resources permit, because I wanted
a red fox and you need a DNR permit for owning a red or grey fox. I live in the
city and get this, I was still approved for the permit. The thing was, that
year they didn't have any pure red foxes, so I got a red/silver cross fox which
ended up looking like a red fox anyway. This place closed down a few years ago,
and they were at different locations in the state and kept getting shut down
and I have not heard of them reopening anywhere else in the state. By the way,
I have read that skunks do make good pets. I hope you find one and get your
dream to come true. I heard rumors of domesticated foxes as well which took 40
years to tame and they were supposed to market them as pets, but I have never
heard anything else on them. I'm wondering if its a hoax or not.

Ah. Hm, I don't think we've ever had anything like that around here but
then it's basically all horse-farms all the time here. And if I can be honest
here I'm not exactly certain I'm that disappointed. Mostly I think that wild
animals should stay wild and I'm very dubious about people keeping
anything like bears or wolves. Not that I'm intending to criticize you or
anything. I guess I'm just back into cautious mode after the trouble with
the tigers last week. Many people have no sense about animals, is all.

Hm... Well cross-foxes are quite cool little vulpines as well. I would
imagine it might be hard to keep that sort of place open. I don't know so
much about keeping foxes but I suspect that they, like skunks, come
highly under suspicion of rabies from the Great Unwashed which makes it
hard to keep them. For skunks, anyway, the only state that I've found that
/doesn't/ require a permit of some kind is Wyoming.

By the way,

*grins* Thanks. Right now I'm looking at moving sometime in the near
future {I hope} so I need to make certain of where I'm going to wind up
and whether skunks are legal there, but I plan to make certain of that if I
can. They /do/ make good companions, as I've heard, and they're quite
bright-around the level of a three year old child I think.
Of course this only applies to striped skunks. Spotted skunks {my
personal pheno} are not domesticable and cannot adapt to life with
humans as readily. They're also truly nocturnal, unliked striped skunks, so
I'm sure that wouldn't be very much fun for either skunk or human. But I'd
better stop as I can talk skunks for pages. *grins* Foxes, too.

Hmm. What I've heard is that someone tried to breed a domestic fox for
use on fur farms and wound up with an animal that had floppy ears and
was pretty far removed from actual wild foxes. Neither practice, of course,
is one I approve of but that, of course, goes without saying.
On the other paw I've also heard that Fennec foxes are more easily
domesticable and are--I /think/--kept in certain countries as pets. So could
be it depends on what kind of fox your dealing with or something.

Funny you should mention rabies. If I wasn't so ignorant in the past and
thought about rabies, I may have never gotten the fox. She was kind of dirty
(as well as the place she was from). For years I had been trying to get another
fox, but I have since given up and I too, don't think wild animals should be
kept as pets. My cousin wants a wolf, herself. She seems like a Furry too. I do
get what I call "Fox Fever" in the spring when foxes are born where I feel I
want another fox, some years it hits me hard and some years it don't. Usually
the idea is shot down right away though.

I actually wanted to try to breed fox hybrids. Some people say its impossible,
but I knew someone studying to be a vet who asked her genetics teacher about
crossing foxes and dogs and she said there is a 50/50 chance of them having
offspring which would of course be sterile.

I know that those tame foxes had floppy ears, as well as shorter tails, and
different streaks of fur color. I too, don't agree with using these tame foxes
for fur farm breeding. I heard they were trying to work out the mutation
problem in the tame foxes so they could get good furs from them. Hopefully, the
problem can't be fixed. One gross thing I heard about is that people actually
eat fox some places which I think is discusting.

From what I know, in heaven under the Christian sence you are
given what makes you happy. Therefore, under that idea, in
heaven you should have that vixen.

On the Tacoma Link streetcar on Conifur Saturday (the first day Seattle Sounder
#3 started running, and thus the streetcar was packed with dignitaries
going to the Sounder station), Katt and I boarded wearing our tails at
the Convention Center streetcar stand. Someone says, "Hey, look at
the tails" to the person next to them. Katt turns to me and says in a
normal speaking tone, "You'd think these people had never seen a bear
and a tiger go by streetcar before."

The next morning, we went to what's gotta be Tacoma's only grocery
store (A Fred Meyer general store) wearing a tail. No comments, but a
couple people would stop and stare with the kind of look that you can
practically hear them sheepishly thinking, "Does...does he know that's
there?"

If you have to ask, you might be.

There's a ranch a few hours south of me that rescues and rehabilitates
wolves and varying-content hybrids from zoos, breeders, exotic pet
stores, and people that bought a hybrid and didn't know what to do
with them. They then try to place the hybrids with people who want
them and know how to take care of them.

I wanted to volunteer there, but I have no car, can't drive and it is
literally in the middle of nowhere...very nice place though.

You're a lot like me. I consider myself very human, a security
officer living in Columbus, OH. I'm also an amateur cartoonist working
on off and on on a Web-based comic strip with animal characters in it.
And I have a healthy make-believe life, pretending to be an Angel Bear
in MUCKS and IRC chats.
While the majority of our peers here in ALF say, "Yes, that's a
fur," I prefer to call myself "involved in the fandom". That gives me a
possible way out in case being in the fandom becomes too dangerous for
me.

How does a fandom become too dangerous? If you're comfortable with
who you are as a furry, there should be no danger involved. I try to
fursuit at least once a week for various organizations. I don't let
things like ER, CSI, or MTV get in my way. I'm furry and proud and
let the world know it.

Last month I fursuited a bicycle race. (I was the official starter
bear) After the race we headed to the local supermarket for brewski.
It was the first time I ever fursuited a store. It was a riot! I
just acted like I belonged there, and nothing was different.

When I worked at a store, I told some of the workers that I was a Furry and
wanted a fox woman. I even showed them a picture of her and suprisingly, they
accepted me.

If you enjoy wearing a one-piece full fursuit (with zipper), and your penis
goes rock hard when someone threatens to super glue the zipper shut with you
still in it, you might be a furry.

The eroticness escapes me. Maybe I'm claustraphobic.

Well, maybe your claustraphobia (if you have that) is keeping you from
seeing the eroticness in that.

Man...you're full of suprises.
I need to compare your headers with an older post of yours before I'm

It could take the stuffing out of The Moment. Then again those mascot
fursuits and their oven conditions, from what I hear, would take the
starch out of any sort of lovelife.

I also have a pair of trousers and a shirt.
