Hey everyone, Cipher here. It’s been a while I know, but I’ve had some personal issues come up and all that. Today I wanted to talk about something that troubles me on a personal level.. Look, okay I’m a furry.. And no, I’m not into bestiality, I’m actually kinda terrified of fursuits, and I’m not all about sex. And it’s really sad that I have to come out with that disclaimer but it seems that’s all people have to say about the furry fandom. It seems that there are two types of people in the world. People in the fandom, and people who know nothing but common misconceptions about the fandom. A friend of mine today told me and our group that the main furry websites were being DDoS’d, which to those of you who don’t know, basically means that a bunch of crappy signals are being sent to the site and overloading it so it’s forced to shut down (by my understanding anyway). I feel that is a direct attack on the fandom and all of those who are a part of it.. It just makes me sad. I dunno.. I guess I just kinda wanted to vent my feelings on the subject. I mean, furries are just another group of people interested in a topic, like sports fans or scrapbookers.. And the kicker is, I’ve never met a mean furry. In fact, every furry I know is extremely cuddly.. Why attack a fandom full of nice and cuddly people when some people enjoy watching half naked men punch the shit out of each other? People don’t blink at violent sports and racist jokes are filling the internet.. But put a furry out there and watch them get completely steamrolled by hatred and insults. It just makes me sad…

Please.. If any of you guys out there have an explanation, an argument, a comment of any sort say something. I’d be happy to answer questions about the fandom. The more people know, the less we have to see websites with domain names like “godhatesfurries”. Anyway.. Sorry for such a short and honestly depressing post.. I just kinda felt the need to say something.
