Hate comments

Journal Entry: Sat Dec 18, 2010, 5:45 PM


Still a low, but raising number of hate comments here on DA against furries makes me really wonder - what the hell is wrong with people? Is your life that boring that you need to insult people you don't even know, just because they like a different hobby or lifestyle (that you also obviously don't need ANYthing about)? Did you ever hear about tolerance? Or appreciating artistic skills, even if you don't like the genre?

"Furry" is such an enormous and varied genre, you couldn't explain it in one phrase, except for the main thing we have in common - Furry Fans are people who have an extraordinary affinity for anthropomorphic animals (which can be art, writing, costuming, roleplaying, or anything else). I absolutely don't expect everybody to understand or even like furry, and that's totally fine. But the hell, people, stop generalizing or insulting a whole fandom just because of one weird picture you googled. It's totally fine not to like something, but honestly - why do you click on submissions like fursuit pictures then? Posting a photo of a well made costume is neither offensive, nor pervert, nor sexual, nor anything. I am not bothering you with it, I am not trying to convert anybody, I am not a "hardcore" furry. Believe it or not - I am a regular girl, with a boyfriend, a nice family, a job, just with a hobby/lifestyle that's less usual than soccer or collecting stamps.

So if you don't like furry but still want to comment - please be polite and tolerant. It's all fine to say it's not your kind of thing, but insulting me (or furries in general) will just make you end up on my block list. I will not let you drag me down on such a low and hateful niveau. And comments like that aren't constructive critique as well.

And same request to the furry side - please do not fight back on the same niveau. We're neither better, nor worse than anybody else. I can somehow understand many of you feel like "defending" the furry fandom, but please rather try to argue properly, give explanations, stay polite, or simply ignore trolls. Insulting people back or telling things like we would be better does not help giving furry a good reputation as well. I don't need to be "proud" of what I am - I simply want to enjoy it.

Two more things about comments:

1. Please read the commentary field when I post a submission! When I write there "BNCreation made the fursuit, not me" and people still answer "great suit you made"... well. ;) I promise I won't write novels in there, just some info that I consider interesting for the submission. ^^

2. I will not answer questions about money in public. If you are really interested how much I paid for something, please send me an email or PM. Thanks for understanding!

Yeah, people see one strange furry picture or drawing and go against the whole thing, this may be weird but its like having one rotten strawberry or something and then throwing away the whole batch, not fair!

Aye, what is up with people?
One thing, people who like furries, are people who understand the imagination behind a very interesting species!
Second thing, do you remember when you are very young, and your parents say, "If it's nothing good to say, don't say it at all, honey!" Well, you would think that if people on this website were over the age of 13, they would be a bit more mature, don't you think?
I'm not saying EVERYONE has to like furries, but if you don't, or think they are strange, or weird, or ANYTHING, just keep it to yourself!
I wish people would understand that everyone is unique, and that people can like something that they don't.
And Tani, I totally agree with you! ^^

I've always been careful when voicing my love for anthro art due to all of the psychos out there who attack anyone who associates with the fandom. It's pretty sad, really, but I guess it just comes with the territory of any fandom. All of the yiffing isn't my style, but it doesn't mean I'll go to every single artist's page who creates that sort of work and condemn and bash them, but maybe I'm just... sane?

:clap: well said!
i've seen a lot of journals recently about this, maybe, eventually these people will understand that not all furries are the same & into yiffing, etc. I only found out about that in an ep of CSI (yay CSI!!!) & that showed the different levels of furries.
:shrug: some people just like to cause arguments

Thanks for writting this, i really hate furry haters, and reading this really made me to react in some way, i already know it but i get so mad at furry haters that i can't help myself qhen they say something stupid about furry,
Furry is my lifestyle, is what im, is my place, is what completes me, so don't fucking insult it! That pisses me off. A person insulting a whole fandom, as you said, just for a stupid gooled image, or for a stupid furry who is not the best representant of the fndom in some way, or any other reason.
Gezz, please stop the hate!
See you Tani.

:clap: That was a very mature way to put it. Your art is gorgeous and I see only beautiful and lifelike pieces. Don't ever stop drawing what you draw unless it is your choice.

It's either trolls who do it on purpose, people who really have no happiness at the time, or religious extremists know-it-alls who THINK they know what things are, and will end their insulting posts with "I will pray for you" (even though that is probably a rare case and it's really trolls, trying to make religious people look bad). I think furries should be set to a neutral, but with all the furverts out there, (and even if you ask them if they think their art it nasty, they'll just shrug, because they've been so exposed to that they don't know right from wrong) no wonder people are dissing furries. I really wish they would not, but most people see being a furry as a fetish.

Every fandom has it's weirdies but it's wrong to generalize.
I like some furry art, especially yours. It's so cute. ^^
And I have to admit some of those fursuits look neat.

Anyone who gives you or anyone else trouble is just a troll and trolls are losers. :]
