ok you know what? This an actual legitimate thing

Furry is a fandom like any other. Unfortunately it is one where the negative aspects of it are taken by public media, and pretty much hung out for all to see and laugh at.  Imagine if they did that with yaoi or slash.  Or imagine if Jimmy Kimmel wanted to do an interview on Homestucks, and took a kid in the LOL BUCKETS stage who skipped to Act 5 and put her on the show to represent the entire FANDOM.

Then imagine a bunch of TV shows talk about the How to Train Your Dragon fandom, but instead of bringing up the amazing art an cosplay, they insinuate that we all dress up like Dragons and fuck each other.

THAT IS LITERALLY WHAT IT IS LIKE.

Now imagine, you like cartoon animals. Maybe you like the porn, who cares. Its private, and I’ve seen WAY weirder in other fandoms.  We know you arent LITERALLY fucking your dog, so who cares.

But the other fandoms laugh at you too.  They think its funny.  They think its funny when you try to defend yourself.  They think its funny when you get angry.  They think its ok to laugh at you.

You know what?

When members of my family saw my fursuit they assumed it was sexual and thought I was making costumes for people to have sex in.  They were worried and disgusted.

Do you have ANY idea how awkward and uncomfortable it is to have to reassure your family that no. I am not, in fact, going to use this thing in sexual encounters.


Imagine if your family saw that you were in the Supernatural fandom, and automatically asked to see all the Dean and Castiel porn you had, automatically assumed you looked at it, automatically assumed it was any of their business.

Fursuits are fuckin art okay?  They take a long time to make.  They are incredibly DIFFICULT to make.  They are expensive to build or buy, and they are hot as FUCK to wear.  On top of that a good portion of fursuiters dont talk.  Its legitimate fucking improvisational performance art.  And it is CONSTANTLY reduced to merely a fetish. 

Theyre cosplay on HARD MODE. And UNLESS you are wearing a Renamon or Toothless quadsuit, you’re obviously going to fuck someone in that tonight.

I’m not saying fucksuits don’t exist.  All I’m saying is that I’ve been in the Furry fandom for like 5 years AND IVE NEVER SEEN ONE.  IVE NEVER SEEN A FURSUIT DESIGNED FOR SEX. BECAUSE THEY KEEP THOSE THINGS IN THEIR BEDROOM. IF THEY TAKE THEM IN PUBLIC  OTHER FURRIES GET PISSED AND TELL THEM TO PUT THAT SHIT AWAY. 

Fursuits are fucking expensive.  Would you have sex in a $2000 costume thats itchy as hell? Fuck no. 

You guys have sex in your cosplays all the time right? 

ITS LOOKED AT LIKE WE ARE STUPID. OTHER. COSPLAYERS. LOOK AT US LIKE WERE BEING CHILDISH AND STUPID FOR LIKING CARTOON ANIMALS.

I don’t understand why putting hours of work into one costume is any less respectable than another simply because one happens to be an animal.

And for reference? Only a small handful of furries even have suits because theyre so fucking expensive and hard to make or obtain.  Or maybe we do have them, but its so fucking socially accepted to make fun of someone for liking two legged talking animals that we hide them and never bother mentioning how long we SPENT ON THE FUCKING THINGS.

Do not even PRETEND other fandoms dont have porn.

Do not even PRETEND other fandoms dont have WEIRD, QUESTIONABLE PORN.

THIS IS TUMBLR.  IT IS SOCIALLY ACCEPTABLE FOR PEOPLE TO POST PICTURES OF A 30 YEAR OLD CHARACTER MAKING OUT WITH A 15 YEAR OLD CHARACTER. 

Don’t even PRETEND that there isn’t a negative side to EVERY fandom.

Furries just have the unfortunate reality of having literally our darkest corners CONSTANTLY shown in the media.

When M rated incestual underage fanfiction of Dave and Rose goes up on fucking Letterman and none of you complain about it misrepresents your fandom, you can shut your mouths about this kind of thing. 

Because its a pain in the ass.

And damn right we are allowed to complain about it.

Everybody needs to read this, because this is all true.

Someone finally put my feelings into a post.  Thank you.

THE SHAAAAAAADE.

*snickers*

This fucking transmisogynstic asshole is upset because trans folks were like “Hey, She-Mail is actually offensive and has this long history of harming trans women.” And this person is going off about it.

Must suck to actually hear from the “T” in LGBT. Gays sure go off when they are told they can’t use a word because of its oppressive nature. 

Let’s not generalize all gay people please.  You know, not all of us are assholes and actually listen when we are told not to use an offensive word.

50 Shades of Abuse Flyer - Canada

Use, redistribute, print. 

Click image and magnify for large version.

Okay. I understood all the flack Twilight got for being an abusive relationship. Because it was and it was being read by a very young and impressionable audience. But ffs, 50 Shades is an ADULT NOVEL. Iit is about a BDSM couple. Which - newsflash - do exist. It is a completely consensual form of dominate/submissive sex play. The whole concept of domestic violence and abuse is that one side exerts control over an unwilling victim. I don’t recall Anastasia, or whatever she’s called, protesting to Christian’s form of sex. If I remember correctly, she quite enjoyed it! So before you condemn a work of romanticizedfiction, actually consider it’s audience and remember that they are mature and capable enough to know the difference between reality and fiction.

so i guess you didn’t read the parts where he coerces her and the part where he continues after she has used her safeword and acts like a fucking creep whenever they aren’t having sex

it is the worst possible introduction to BDSM i could imagine

i know my shit okay

im hoping the people defending this book are 1. never getting into BDSM 2. not currently into BDSM 3. havent read the book bc i dont want to believe anyone is that fucking stupid

Let me

just

fucking

drop

some fucking

knowledge on you right now.

Wanna know the BDSM mantra? Safe, sane, consensual.

So let me explain why this book was devoid of all three of these things.

Safe - In the first few chapters of the novel, Christian Grey tracks Ana’s cell phone to find her at a club. Takes her home when she’s drunk, changes her when she’s so intoxicated she doesn’t remember him doing so,and informs her he will be keeping tabs on her for her own benefit. This is not the behaviour of a respectable Dominant. This is the behaviour of a power hungry, abusive asshole who really can’t take no for an answer.

Sane - One of the most important parts of BDSM is aftercare. Scenes can be extremely traumatizing and intense for the submissive. Aftercare is anything from petting to cuddling to holding to sweet talking, whatever degree of gentleness a bottom would need to pull them out of “subspace”. How does Christian provide aftercare? He submits Ana to a traumatizing first time spanking experience AND THEN FUCKING LEAVES. AND GETS MAD THAT SHE DIDN’T TELL HIM SHE WAS UPSET. He’s the one who should fucking know better! That, again, is not the act of a responsible Dominant. It’s the act of a selfish abuser.

Consensual - Did I mention he undressed her when she was belligerently drunk? Tracked her phone to locate her? He also buys her a new car despite her saying no countless times. Now, consent is important for any kind of sexual activity at all. Consent means informed, consent means enthusiastic. Informed, enthusiastic consent. This is crucial in a BDSM setting. Scenes can be extremely intense, especially for the bottom. What is Christian’s form of obtaining consent? Handing Ana a fucking contract highlighting all the things he wants to do her asshole and asking her to sign it. She was a virgin (Don’t even get me fucking started.) who had never before been exposed to BDSM. Entering in that kind of relationship takes a gargantuan amount of trust and knowledge so you know exactly what you’re getting into. Not reading a list of kinks on a piece of paper and signing your rights to say no away. Christian didn’t offer her resources, he didn’t offer her information. He gave her an ultimatum. That is not the sort of consent a responsible Dom/me would seek from their submissive.

Fuck. This. book. It’s written in a shitty way, it’s a terrible example of a BDSM relationship (ask anybody already involved in the lifestyle and watch them go blue in the face just thinking about it), which is already faced with enough prejudice and misunderstand, and it romanticizes and glorifies abuse.

And this post is going into my bookmarks, because it is beautiful.

HEY LOOK EVERYTHING I HATE ABOUT 50 SHADES SERIES IN ONE

ooo, someone actually broke down the Safe Sane Consensual thing and how 50 Shades DOESN’T EVEN TOUCH IT WITH A 10 FOOT POLE.

def reblogging.

I got so tired of explaining why what I liked was different from this piece of shit. Thank you.

Bless this post

i have read fics written by 17 year old virgins with a better grasp on a healthy bdsm relationship then this series.

it’s so bizarre seeing 13 and 14 year olds on here typing and acting like everyone else on tumblr because i think back to when i was 13 and on deviantart and i wonder “where’s your weeaboo phase. no you can’t just skip it where is it”

Let’s just say we all go through certain phases we are not proud of when we reach adulthood.  And there are some phases that we go through in adulthood and immediately regret but can’t stop.
