Room 366 or “How furries need to realize that sex and sexuality ACTUALLY EXIST”

Sep 21, 2011 54 Comments by

This is an Opinion piece republished from AsylumCat’s site.  As stated on FNN before, there is little denying that there is a growing sexual side to the fandom.  This is not going away, and with media attention coming to the fandom like never before, it is something that we all need to learn to deal with.


Room 366 or “How furries need to realize that sex and sexuality ACTUALLY EXIST”

So it seems that a fairly tame, especially by today’s standards, furry-made fursuit video has made it publicly onto the web. The video in question? Room 366:

Some furs are absolutely up in arms about it “destroying our image.”  Others are happy it got leaked. And a lot of us are like “meh.”

For the most part I’m glad this was publicized. In all honesty that “squeeky clean” image of furry needs to go.  Everyone knows what exists beneath the fuzzy coat of furry, and it’s not innocent.  And no, it’s not everyone either.  Some furs are genuinely squeeky clean themselves.  For the most part tho the majority of furs have SOME sort of sexualization towards their interests. I mean COME ON look at what some of the most popular images, videos, and suits are… Sexy.  We are human after all, and sex is a innate part of our psychological makeup.  The groups of “furry police” that try to shield everyone from things like this are just doing a disservice to the fandom.  Saying “Oh no theres no sexual/kink/fetish component to furry, its just a bunch of creative people coming together for sheer camaraderie.” BULL.  SHIT.  All that does is shield the public from something that is there and they would eventually get used to.

Look at anime and hentai/tentacles/loli/yaoi.  Anime conventions are HUGE money and anime fans don’t feel like they have to “come out of the closet” when they tell their friends and family they are interested in it.  Then look at furry… People hide their interests like they are shamed by them, pretend that it doesn’t exist. Then eventually they “come out of the costume closet” and tell their families and friends like they are homosexual…

Look. Sex exists in the fandom. Suiters do it, random people do it, kinky furs REALLY do it. STOP marginalizing it and just EMBRACE IT.  You don’t have to do it, but you shouldn’t act like it doesn’t happen nor should you try to stop it. Grow the fuck up.

Like the current sentiment in the equal rights fight goes:

Don’t like gay marriage? Don’t get one.
Don’t like abortions? Don’t get one.
Don’t like drugs? Don’t do them.
Don’t like sex? Don’t have it.
Don’t like kink? Don’t be kinky.
Don’t like furry sexuality? Don’t participate in it.
Don’t like your rights taken away? Don’t take away anybody elses.
