PostSubject: Furry Study   Fri Apr 11, 2008 6:25 am

This was taken from my furfag site




ection I: What is a Furry?
Looking beyond CSI: Miami Episode 406

1. Introduction
On October 30th 2003, CBS aired the CSI: Miami Episode 406 entitled “Fur and Loathing.” (Figure 1) This episode introduced a Furry to U.S. viewers to be a member of a sexual fetish that dresses up in animal costumes and then engages in huge orgies.
Figure 1
As I show in my thesis, this popular misunderstanding could not be farther from the truth. Nevertheless, misinterpretations like this one and others like it in main-stream media and other public sources have caused a great prejudice towards Furries. In fact, there are even online groups such as the Facebook group “Anti-Furry Coalition” which has to say this about Furries (Extract 1)”
Extract 1
A furry commonly believes that he or she is an animal trapped in a human's body. Some go so far as to dress up in mascot-style outfits of their choice critter. Many furries are most comfortable interacting in animal suits or masks. They feel that their "fursona" (a furry play on the word "persona") is who they really are. They want to be taken seriously. They want to be accepted.

Furries are not acceptable.

Furry culture is centered around escapism through sex. Furries want to avoid the responsibility of the real world by becoming something or someone else. Many are uncomfortable with the human form, have trouble coping with reality and human society, and have extremely stunted social skills. Many shy, unpopular, slow-minded children are drawn in by this Internet subculture when they believe that they've finally found a place that they are accepted.

They are wrong.

In a way, it could be said that Furries are the “new gay.” What that means is that for the most part, the gay and lesbian community is now more generally accepted in today’s society; so with the gay and lesbian minority being more understood, which minority will be the next target for the majority to harass?

2, What is a Furry?
Thanks to an online study performed by the University of Davis’ Department of Psychology, we are better able to understand the demographics of the Furry community. This study gathered its data by an online survey. They contacted many popular Furry websites and invited anyone over the age of eighteen to participate. The study showed that out of the six hundred respondents surveyed, 81% were male and the average age was 24.6 years old. Most respondents were white and American and 38% were full-time students. 25% were homosexual, 37% were bisexual, and 32% were heterosexual. Half of the respondents were in a relationship and 76% of that half were in a relationship with another furry. The majority of the respondents spend at least several days a week engaging in the community by mainly interacting over the internet. Engaging in the community by going to Furry-related conventions only ranked 4th and, more importantly, 82% of the Furries surveyed did not own a Furry consume, also known as a fursuit. The reason why these last two pieces of data are surprising is because the stereotypical Furry is seen as only going to conventions and owning a fursuit.
As this survey shows, Internet interaction is an essential factor in the Furry Community. This is because a big portion of this community does not see being a Furry as a fetish or a sexual desire, but as an extension of their deeper being. Most Furries feel they identify with an animal or, in some cases, more than one animal. And because in real life, it is impossible to become another species, the Furry online community acts as an important outlet for its members to interact as that part of themselves that might otherwise remain hidden and repressed. In additions, another important dimension is that the Furry community has created a genre of art called “Furry Art.” This can range from writings such as poetry to long prose to music to visual art. In fact, some members of the community do not identify with being a Furry but are mainly involved in the community simply for its rich art content and atmosphere. Therefore, I have created a definition that encompasses all aspects of the Furry Community in its entirety: The Furry community is a subculture that mostly interacts on the internet where its members either believe that they identify with a particular species, be it real, extinct, or mythical, in a sexual or nonsexual way or simply engage in the community due to its rich art genres. As I was conducting research for this project I was very disappointed to find practically no studies on the Furry community, let alone language in the Furry community.

3. Related Research
Despite this richness, most of the research I found either touched on one issue related to the community or another but none ever talked about the entire picture. For example, Don Kulick (2000) helps show the use of language and the way it is used depending on the sexual identities of people but not on how it is used with the Furry community. Likewise, Gary Alan Fine (1983) which looks at role-playing in Dungeons and Dragons, saw how people can become fictional characters. However in Furry role-playing, a one-on-one online discourse usually sexual in nature, the participants are much more in-depth and sentimentally connected with their fursonas (the furry word for “persona”) than someone typically would with their character in Dungeons and Dragons. Camille Bacon-Smith (2000) not only shows how science fiction cultures organize and operate but how sexual minorities such as gay and lesbians are involved in science fiction culture. Nevertheless, the main focus is on Star Trek fan groups and other similar cultures, not the Furry community: this project is therefore the first research that looks at the Furry community and the use of language in not only online discourse but also in face-to-face Furry social interactions.

4. Letting the Furries Speak for Themselves
The definition of a Furry above is based on what many Furries feel what it means to identify as one. In this section, I use data from my interviews with Furries to further develop this definition and challenge stereotypes of the community. The general themes that emerge in the data are fursuits, what being a Furry means, and being involved in the fandom due to the artistic community (Extract 2). The term “fandom” appears a lot in the data and usually refers to the Furry culture in general.
Extract 2
Cron:I do not have a fur-suit, and I don't plan on getting one.

As suggested above, many Furries believe that being a furry is like being gay or a lesbian in that one does not really choose to have this identity, but rather it is an inherited part of who they are (Extract 3).
Extract 3a
Belltower: I see being furry as an extension of myself, my attitude, my personality, my instincts
#
Extract 3b
01 Rene: It’s @@@@@@@@ its less of (1.0) uh what does it mean to me? Its just
02 kind of a:n actuality uh-its kind of hard to draw that line its (0.5) you know.
03 A way of identifying. You know this is. Who I am. What I am. What I identify
04 with. Just. It-It fits.
05 Kyle: mhm.
06 Rene: (1.0) Uh-its, you know, it’s a subculture, its. Uh. You
07 know. Describing of anyone as a religion is or:, you know, saying “oh yeah,
08 I-I was a girl scout a girl scout when I was a kid or I was a boy scout, you know
09 it-it’s the same kind of thing its just, you know, it (1.6) its an identity
#
Extract 1.3c
Speed: Being in touch with an inner part of me that is part of nature, a litte wild and crazy, and being able to express it physically, mentally, and socially.

As in extract 3b, a Furry can see that being a Furry is just as natural as being a boy or girl scout. It is describing who they are and is just a part of their past and present. What is also analogous with other sexual minorities is how one “comes out” as a Furry. From the data gathered for this thesis, the messages have been mixed as to if Furries use the term of “coming out” as a Furry. Even so, the many ways one can come out to themselves as a furry is very similar to coming out as a sexual minority. Some Furries have been told their entire life, usually by Furry parents, that it is a part of them and they should embrace it (Extract 1.4).

Extract 1.4a
Inphy: I was born into the fandom. It just kind of became a part of me naturally
Extract 1.4b
Speed: Always identified, matured into it.

Other Furries turned to the community as a way to find peace and it simply became a part of

them. (Extract 5)

Extract 5
01 Phill: um (3.0) it was, at one point, a
02 coping mechanism, (1.0) for when I couldn’t deal with a lot of, stuff that was
03 going on in my life. eh-but it has become just something that is a part of my
04 everyday life now.

Some Furries never really noticed their identification until they found the community in a variety of ways. Once they did, they did not have a doubt in their mind that they were a Furry (Extract 6).

Extract 6a
Amaru (Female): I’ve always had attractions to the odd anthropomorphic character in films, but it never went further then that. Until around mid 2006, my friend and I came across a post on a forum about the fandom, and interested, we looked further into it. I then, on my own, finally came across a yiff site (furry porn site if you like), I found I felt attracted to it strongly. And although I went through a phase of denial, saying to myself it was too weird, and as I was only attracted to the male side of it, I went into denial about that. Then near the end of the year, around October, I did some soul searching and decided that I couldn’t deny myself anymore, it was pointless to, so I accepted it and told my friends straight after.
Extract 6b
Belltower: I first identified my self as a furry about 6 years ago, right after I joined the Army. I meet other furrys and saw myself as one.
In some other cases, coming out can be one of great confusion, distress, and furthermore many
have a far deeper meaning, one of deep spirituality (Extract 7).
Extract 1.7
01 Leo: Gosh, I was probably about abou:t s:eventeen or eighteen.
02 Kyle: OK
03 Leo: a:nd how I got
04 into it wa:s there’s some. Drama going in on my life so tried to keep myself
05 sane. (1.0) I started n-um doing a lot of meditating. A::nd. Having some dreams
06 And it started to be a recurring thing of having, a tiger. In my dreams. (0.5) and
07 eventually in one of my meditations (0.8) U:m (1.0) this tiger came up and
08 spoke to me and introduced himself and my spirit guide an’

01 Leo: And so:: I started kind of having this: (2.4) Species-identity crisis, I’d guess
02 you’d call it, for lack of a better term because I was like “Oh my go:d, I’m
03 having: (you know) I feel like I should be a tiger:: what if this is some great
04 cosmic mistake, but I don’t believe in cosmic mistakes like that (1.0) what’s
05 going =on=.”
06 Kyle: =right=
07 Leo: So:: I was talking to some person I met on chat room, I don’t
08 remember who. (1.0) A:nd he was like “Oh! Have you heard of the
09 furry fandom?” N-no what’s that? (0.5) So: probably sent me a website or
10 something started looking onto it started finding more people. And then I went
11 “O:h! I’m a furry OK.” And then. That was the end of the crises.
Of the ten Furries I interviewed, not one stated that they were a furry just because it was sexual fetish for them. It is a much broader identity and therefore it makes the community a much more complex than what the stereotype would have one believe. Granted, the sexual aspect of the community is present but it does not control the members of the community.
Some members of the Furry community, however, do not have a strong identification with an animal persona; rather, they are involved mainly for its art genre and artistic atmosphere (Extract 8).
Extract 1.8
Cron: I cant really describe it. When you look at a picture and something inside you is touched emotionally and intellectually, you ponder about that picture you saw for days on end, it becomes a part of you. You search for more of this feeling, and you find it... the fact that these images are of the personification of animals is appearent.

A furry community is a congregation of people who strive to be different and prove who they are, an artists paradise!

I do not view myself as an animal, I do not have animal qualities. I simply have a different affinity.

Now that there is a much better understanding as to what a Furry is, it is now time to see

the linguistic aspect of the community.

5. Furries and Language…What’s the Connection?
What the internet has allowed in the Furry community is the phenomenon that one can be anything one desires. Although this concept is used in other aspects of the internet, (and is sometimes used in a very dangerous was in the hands of sex-offenders), it is a particularly dominant and essential factor in the Furry community. This is because not only are their aliases deeper and more personal than a regular online alias, they are also not human. An alias allows a person to go by a different name, personality, or in this case, a different species. Both of these factors create a major shift in language use particularly I the lexicon. All of which would not be possible without the internet (Extract 9).
Extract 1.8a
Amaru: I will use more furry slang; I will often be far more casual and ‘jokey’ and just tend to be more open.
Extract 1.8b
Cron: Kesh [his furry persona] is far more proper and serious then I am, he doesnt use slang and is very self-rightous.


6. Summary
In addition to showing language use online, this study also looks at Furries in normal

everyday conversation and at a Furry convention; a place where truly both worlds collide. This study also looks at the art scene of this community and its paradoxal question: “Who takes credit for Furry art? The person or their fursona?” In any case, I hope this project will not only dispel the horrible stereotype of Furries, but will help pave the way to more research done in all other aspects of academia in regards to this community. The Furry community is truly not only a gold mine for all kinds of academic data, but is also a great example of what the internet and life in the digital age can create.

Secondly, read the fucking thing before making a stupid post, numbnuts.

I did read the first paragraph. honestly you share the same view that whoever wrote this does. that you are persecuted, or FURsecuited, as the case may be (har har har).

Anyways my point is, whilst this topic is interesting for about half a minute, it is obvious you have issues with being accepted, and approved of. Whilst you feel persecuted and picked on, and that everyone bandwagons against you, you dont realise that noone really cares.

no-one asks you to advertise your choice of lifestyle or attempt to justify it. Its just like someone coming on here, having a great big christian rant, and how we should all accept christianity, having pictures of jesus all over his signature, and constanly complaining and becoming insecue and sensetive whenever anyone has anything to say against christianity.

your choices are your choices. But this is just funny.

Well, my point is that i stopped reading it because it was too one sided, and had a constant "victim status' air about it.

It wasnt research as much as an insecure rant by someone who obviously felt unsure of his choices. Honestly, IMO if you choose to do something or be something then do it. Its your decision.

But dont then go out and start preaching to the 'internet' about it in some obviously biased and fictional 'study' that is as one sided as the argument against it.

I have never once used the term "FURsecuted" and the only one here i know that really DOES hate me for being a furry is Hanzo. truth be told many of the thing in the fandom quite piss me off a bit, While yes I'll concede the point that the acceptance is nice and i like the comfort of the community but i don't think "everyone is out to get me Etc." Frankly i don't really give a fuck. Point being i'm not your Typical furry thats going to go off about something just because i don't like it or don't agree.

That one also pisses me off because these children don't have the maturity to conduct themselves properly, so it gives the rest of us a bad name.

Hanzo hates everyone, and as a result, most people hate Hanzo.

Also yeah, a lot of the time its the actions of the few that influence the image of the many, i mean its the same thing with the muslim religion. somehow religious/cultural symbols have been stereotyped effectively as 'terrorist-wear' and basically theres examples of it all over the world.

But really, i think that the problem most people face everyday is their own fear of the world OUTSIDE of their comfort zone. and its not really fair to judge people as less than yourself just because you disagree with them and their choices. honestly we are all equal and its up to each one of us how we decide to live.

But then its always dangerous to be associated with a large social/religious/political group, because then people stop seeing the induviduals that make up the group, it becomes a masse legion type thing where the people arent seen as people anymore. and then mass sweeping generalisations and judgements just start to fly out unfairly.

one thing most people don't realize is the sheer number of people with a pedophilia fetish that DON'T act on it by raping little girls...people that have self control...

Yeah, I didn't feel like reading it all (having read the comments saying that it was grotesquely one-sided), all I know is that I'm still laughing at how ludicrous the summary paragraph. "A goldmine for academic data"? "A great example of what the internet can create"?

Yeah, ummmm, I'm sorry. "Furraphilia" is a fetish, just like pedophilia, necrophilia, and most relevantly: bestiality. OH! OH! But it's not bestiality! It's furries having sex with furries! Yeah, and that's still humans getting off on animal sex...dressing up as the animal doesn't improve the situation.

In short: furries are nothing more than people who took the phrase "Do it like they do on the Discovery Channel" a bit too literally.

Razz all I know is that anyone who says that Furry is a subculture or a society unto itself is wrong. It's a sexual fetish, not "the new gay". When furries start dressing up as their furry character every day to go shopping, go to work, and live their character non-stop, then it will be a subculture. Gay people can't just stop being gay when they want to, furries are only furries when no one else (besides other furries) is looking, the rest of the time they're "normal" people.

You saying that gays aren't "normal" when people are looking?

Well "normal" for them is being gay. They're always gay, they can't stop being gay. Just because you can't tell that they're gay right off the bat as easily as you could if some dude was jacking off to your highschool mascot. But just because they don't show any outward signs doesn't mean that they're not still currently gay.

As I said, Furries, on the other hand, masturbate all overthemselves in private then take off their costume, put on their pants, and go to work.
