Basically....whats your opinion on this internet sub-culture/ gaggle of over enthusiastic anthro lovers?
As for me....
When I was a young pup, still wet behind the ears, surfing the net for Sonic sites, I would often come upon sites dedicated to this community, and quite frankly....IT DISGUSTED ME! However as i have grown I have realized, these people, although they may obsess with a certain type of fictional character more so then one would deem healthy, really arn't any worse then some of the more overzealous anime fans. So I would say overall, despite the fact they can be awkward to get into discussion with, really they arn't any worse then some of the otaku out there.
I will say this though, I do take some offense to them taking some of my favorite toons and drawing R34 of em, but hey thats just me.
And as another question, just like with any fanbase, what classifies someone as this. Again I've heard people call someone a furry mearly for liking series with anthromorphs in them, but that doesn't sound right to me, I mean what about all of us nerdy types who like Sonic & Thundercats, all the anime fans that like shows with Neko Gals in em? What about we Bronies & Pegasisters?
Overall I still take this just see this fanbase to be the U.S./EU equivlant of hardcore Otaku, people that get way to obsessed over something, not all bad and not all good, and i'm sure like with all other fanbases there's different levels.
But back to a serious note, thats my view on set fan base,whats yours?
P.S. this is just the 1st of what will hopefully be many thoughtful and well rounded discussions of the various fanbases of the interwebs, I just felt like starting with something that had a little bit of...spice to it.
