Well because of people like good old Marshall down there I had only heard that furries were fuzzed up sex freaks. Luckily thanks to a supportive girlfriend and awesome articles like this on buzzfeed, I have come to terms with that part of myself. Had no clue the name for what I am is therian.I typically just say I’m furry light.

i’m sure you just watched the CSI episode and found half of these terms. people can get into that fucking weird 50 shades of grey shit but furries are freaks? whoever said it below was right, i’ve only ever met super sweet people who are furries and they don’t screw each other in costume. great job generalizing. should we just assume all buzzfeed contributors have the humor of 12 year old boys?

Way to show fursuiting in a positive light, good going buzzfeed, you’ll just make anyone look bad for more views wont you? I’m not a furry myself but seriously most of them, like 90% of them, do it for fun, like cosplaying, not for the sexual thrill. There’s always weird people in every fandom. Honestly the furries I’ve met at cons are very sweet and fun. (:
