We aren't sexual deviants, for the most part, we're mostly people who enjoy excersizing our creativity and are enthralled by anothromoporphic creatures. Some of us may be, but that depends on your definition of the sexual norm.
Sorry guys but for the most part furries are described as sexual deviants. Sure, you may not like the title but it is what it is. I am sure emos and goths do not like those titles being applied to them but they really do not have a choice. "Lolita enthusiasts" are generally called pedos which is unaccurate but they do not get to pick their label.
Yes I am aware that there may be some of you who just like the art style but the label (sorry to repeat myself) just is what it is.
And this is coming from a dude who aint got nothing against furries.
If I go by what you're defining as a sexual deviant, then anyone who does anything besides missionary, vaginal sex is a deviant, I'm sorry, but as a furry, and as someone who can say a lot about the community from experiance, sexuality plays a generally minor role in the day to day going ons in the fandom, and the whole "its a fetish/they're sexual deviants" is a MASSIVE stereotype which needs to be kicked in the ass, lit on fire and gone over with a sledgehammer.

Just uuuh, stay out of the fursuits okay. Those people are fucking creepy.
Once bio engineering gets up to speed, you're in for a lot of trouble, since those won't be suits anymore...

Yes, there is a Furry group on The Escapist.
Why would you feature it...?
Why wouldn't they?
Because furries are a self-entitled, pseudo-special interest group that feeds off any attention they are given.
Wait, how is that different then almost every single other group of people on the internet?
*EDIT* Scratch that, "on earth?" would probably be more appropriote.

... So? All humans are, besides, the community is great once you set your prejudices aside.

Wikipedia is a lovely source of info!

In all seriousness, its a community based around anthropomorphic art, meaning that things like the Looney Toons are part of the fandom.

Quite honestly, I couldn't care less about Furries.

Except Furries.

Let me elaborate, there is a sect of everything that gives it a bad name and those sects alone are the things I dislike. Furries are like anything else, they have their share of bad people and those are the ones I focus my disapproval upon. I don't hate the idea behind the Republican Party, I just dislike the morons that twisted it into what it is now. The same applied to the Democrats, Liberals, Conservatives... etc. It's no different here.

As far as I know, this group isn't that sect, so... Congrats to them.

Exactly, I'm part of the group but even I can see what you mean. There are some people who try to force what they like on people (Can be any group honestly) and make you accept them, instead of just leaving people alone.
Its to bad that these people do this and give groups like furries and other groups such a bad name.

Mhm, that's what we had Sleekeh for, he showed everyone what we are and let them warm up to the idea rather than ramming it down people throats.

Hi, just out of curiosity are we talking affectionados of the art / fantasy or dressing up in furry suits.... Or both? How big an element with furries is a sexual thing?

Only curious, googling it does not turn up a .... representative sample!! :) Though Turtle in Entourage did look hilarious.

Cheers, R

Furries.
Furries everywhere.

I've been a member of the group for a while now. The chat there is always active and fun. Nice to see the Escapist give it a spotlight. =^_^=

An anthropomorphic animal, in layman's terms a half-human half-animal... google 'furdom' for the whole community-thung, it's hard to explain.

I'm a member of the group and stop by to chat every now and again, huzzah for spotlight!

The group has a large mix of furry fans. For example: I like the art and enjoy being in the group, but I wont be having a fur suit any time soon. I do have cat ears though...

So if I like cartoons of naked half-men, half lion/tiger/wolf/etc. does that make me a "furry"?

Depends on what that "like" actually means.

I think it depends, but I am leaning towards "no" unless you wanted to be known as a furry.

I am not a full furry so to speak.

Does this mean next week it will be about a pedophile group?
Should make for interesting reading.
If you want the Pedophile group now, it's called 4chan.org.
Thats an ignorant statement at best and at worst an unwarranted hatred of something I'm guessing is related (ED).

I take it you've never actually been on 4chan, and are probably thinking of 12chan or 7chan instead. Go on 4chan and click video games. Notice the lack of pedophilia, but the abundance of light hearted discussion of video games, memes and other funny things. maybe you're referring to the odd idiot who uploads CP to /b/, which is very similar behavior to many furries who feel the need to upload furry porn. Don't get me started on the sprays some of them use in Valve games.

I know this and I don't even browse 4chan that much.

Ah, now to the real post. I'm happy to see the group get the spotlight, maybe after a while we can finally explain to everyone on the Escapist what a furry is.

There'll always be a small group of people that think we bone animals Dx

Really it's just a load of people that like drawing cute pictures and dressing up in silly costumes x3

I'm happy to see that group spotlighted and surprised to see there isnt already more trolls here yet :S

That being said they do get alot of bashing most unwarranted but some is but thats more individual cases than the Furrys as a whole.
