Part of a 3 part stamp submission I'm going to be placing on the furry fandom. This one is in response to how many furries are trying to take off the furfag section of ED (Encyclopedia Dramatica) If your unfamiliar what it ED is it's basically a wikipedia site where you can edit and discuss certain topics. This particular one is more for the drama that happens over the internet. Certain users that are very infamous and well known will be placed onto this site in an article form. The particular article I'm talking about is this one. [link]
I'm just going to make this clear to everyone. No! They are not serious about this. I'm sure the editors are well aware that not all furries are into YIFF and probably won't even go as far as Zoophilia. But the reason why furries look bad is not because of these fantards who like to shove their fetish into people's mouths. But the furries who take this way too seriously. What you need to realize is that the article is satirical, a joke just like the rest of the website. I also kind of find it ironic that the article will state how furries take everything said too seriously then then they make a comment saying how not all furries are like that because they are taking what is said too seriously.
This site is a joke alongside with any other site. But fortunately, this is not as a big of a deal then other sites. Take this one for instance [link]
When something says it's the "100%" percent truth about furries you know they're just trying lure furries in in order to get them to flip out. Checking out the E-mail section I was shocked by what the furries wrote. So one of two things there. The furries really do flip out like that and the people running the site get a laugh, or the email is simply edited and post for amusment (or both.) Either way, it's something furries should stay clear of, take it with a grain of salt, get on with their lives and let them have their fun.
And this works the other way around as well. With the fantards that come with the fandom there are also the anti-tards who would take sights like this too seriously. They would say that this is the definition of a furry and they will be damn serious about it. I've encountered one or two in my time of the fandom. But I relized that explaining to these people is not really worth it. Most of the time people are just trying to troll you. If the comment is something like "it's okay if you don't want to share your fetish, I know what you do behind the closet" they are most likely trying to troll you. If they get a response, then they win.
You start a group saying where spreading what being a furry means then the trolls and these rogue sites win. If you start a group saying how we should get rid of all the zoophiles (which BTW is damn impossible over the internet) then once again, the trolls and rogue site win.
And that that ends my nice long explanation. None of these sites nor ED is serious about furries. This stamp does generalize all of them regardless that I'm saying ED in the stamp. But ED is the popular one so I placed that in. for familiar site name. :]
