I’ve been calling myself a “furry” for years but do I immediately jump up my own ass whenever someone starts going off about how “all furries are gross perverts that fuck animals etc etc”
no I don’t because I know that, to at least some extent, it’s true. the furry fandom has a lot of really shitty people in it—unapologetic racists, misogynists, rapists and rape apologists, pedophiles, people who literally have sex with dogs and are PROUD of it.
The fandom also has a lot of really, really awesome people in it. but that doesn’t magically erase the fact that the shitty people exist, just because I personally happen to know and am friends with furries who are well-adjusted and friendly and, you know… don’t abuse animals. I don’t delude myself into thinking that the fandom I’ve belonged to for over 10 years is squeaky clean and innocent. I got over the whole “fursecution” bullshit a long time ago.
Now, if someone asks me if I’m a furry, I say “yeah”; if they ask me if I’m some sort of dogfucker, I say “no”, not “NOT ALL FURRIES ARE DOGFUCKERS STOP MAKING GENERALIZATIONS”, followed a four paragraph essay about how me and none of my friends are dogfuckers.
I’m not exactly saying you should just stop calling yourself a Brony if you don’t really want to, but the thing to keep in mind is that if you publicly carry a fandom label like brony or furry or whatever, be prepared to carry that stigma with you, as well and stop flipping into defense mode whenever someone brings up those stigmas. Those stigmas exist because the shitty people in your fandoms created them. If you know that you/your friends are not part of what makes your fandom shitty, then why even get defensive in the first place…?
