@maolfunction Still feel really bad for that OP. He put so much effort into that thread, only for people to shit it up because they were taught that furries were acceptable targets by 4chan when they were 8.
@MochaKoffee It's a nice thread, just random people keep dropping in to explain how they think furries are two steps from fucking the family dog, a normal thing to assume and perfectly reasonable to shit on something without playing or reading anything about it.
@MochaKoffee "I don't hate furries. However,"
k, so you just have a poor reason to find them distasteful, but will tolerate them existing in that corner over there
@maolfunction "i don't hate the gays, but"
If you don't like furry art, that's cool. You don't have to engage with it. You don't have to make your EW FURRIES opinion known.
but that was the underlying point, after all
@MochaKoffee I swear this is what people think furries are, when it's just a bunch of people who watched too many Disney cartoons and realized they were gay because of it.
@maolfunction Like, I can understand why people would get turned off when it comes to the actual porn, but you'd think Disney would have normalized at least some of it lol
@maolfunction Furries are a weird topic because, even in vaguely left-leaning spaces, they're still considered an acceptable target. Decades of Internet culture has successfully made it commonplace.
It doesn't really come up nearly as often as Era's hate boner for Japan and Anime, but you can definitely see it when it does.
@MochaKoffee I don't mind people calling it weird, because it is weird. but quit making broad assumptions about people, and quit going into a space gay people have carved out for themselves and tell them that there's something not normal about what they're enjoying.
I don't know why so many users there make it their mission to make other people feel uncomfortable because they're uncomfortable with something they don't bother to learn anything about
@MochaKoffee It's akin to straight people going, "Hey maybe don't wear leather to Pride, have you considered that? I don't understand why you people need to sexualize a Pride parade. Every time people see a gay now, they're just gonna be thinking about gays in leather. Why are you getting upset???"
@maolfunction i will never understand those people that are apparently incredibly surprised that sexuality is important to LGBT people lol
i know a lot of it's not genuine
@MochaKoffee It's so frustrating. I feel like I'm a different species sometimes. Sexuality, being sexual, and actual sex are three completely different things and most straight people just don't understand that on a basic level.
The concept of communal sexuality is completely foreign to them and they'll look at you like you're in a cult when you try to explain it.
