Before we get whining about "bawwwww cry more furfag":
There are a hell of a lot of furries that are freak-jobs. And there are a lot that aren't.
Honestly, the fandom deserves it's reputation, because the decent people allow the real weirdos to be the most vocal and visible. It's either the weirdos or the people who bitch constantly about fursecution and never stop whining about the CSI episode.
We need to grow a pair instead of whining constantly, but yet never doing a damn thing to dispel our reputation, so we really do deserve it. If the only furries that are visible are the wack-jobs and the people who baw over the most minor slight...
But I still made this. -shrug-
Fight against the freaked-out furries. As long as they're not doing anything illegal (coughPAEDOPHILEScoughZOOHPILEScough) let them do whatever the hell they want, but...
Just don't have shame in calling yourself a furry. The only way we'll get a better rep is if we start trying.
