  1. Before the cub porn saga he was seen as a creep, and there have been rape allegations against him. When he was made staff of Furaffinity to help with a site rewrite the allegations blew up hard.

    Leftyfurs absolutely hate rapists, even just alleged ones.

  2. I've somewhat been out of the furry drama scene since about 2007, so maybe I'm missing something. I've always been amazed at the fandoms ability to control information about what happens at conventions. For instance, there seem to be a lot of artists who are popular enough to have booths at conventions yet there isn't a single photo of them on the internet. How is it that all these hero worshiping furries each armed with a phone camera haven't leaked a picture? I seem to remember conventions that required a press pass to have a camera at all. I wonder if these conventions protect popular artists when they are up to no good.

  3. There probably isn't much information or photos available because nobody cares much about knowing the people that draw their porn. That and the general taboo of just walking around taking photos of people's faces for no reason.

    The press pass thing was likely to curb media furor over furries back in the day when the fandom got a lot of negative press and sparked moral panic a few times. It also likely goes hand-in-hand with protecting privacy.

  4. @Golden Compass said it well that there is a taboo surrounding snapping photos of people in public shared places without their consent, but if you want to read Anthrocon's "Standards of Conduct" here: https://www.anthrocon.org/standards-of-conduct/

    A relevant passage:

  5. The prevalence of furry deviants on huge, not exclusively furry social media platforms like Twitter has really rendered cons' attempts at information control obsolete. People like Kage can't hide it forever.

  6. Don't forget the fact that someone can just whip out their phone and film you doing stupid shit in public now, like fake fucking in a con lobby.

  7. Most of all my friends only use FA to get commissions now. Everything else is organized through twitter, word of mouth or telegram now. FA is trash for anything else. Shit, all furry centered websites are trash. Either horrible U.I. (Furry Network), specifically cater to the shitty side of the fandom (InkBunny) or are ran by fucking muppets (Fa).

    Best to just stay away the best one can.

  8. I've seen a lot of people jumping ship to just use Twitter, which is ironic because Twitter staff is trash at protecting artist's rights (and do not care about commissioners what-so-ever) unless you file an official dmca, not to mention that the Furry community on Twitter is a fucking sesspool of sjw's.

  9. Yep, fandom is going to eat itself alive soon enough. Going to get more interesting as all the second and third wave furries try to one up eachother to look like they're better than everyone else / out SJWing eachother. And then they'll start finding all their all-stars are fucked up in their own ways and start to feed them to the wolves too.

  11. I'm wondering how long the furry fandom can last in this day and age. Nothing lasts forever, and I get this feeling that furries will end up being a dead subculture, similar to greasers, hippies, goths, beatniks, emo kids, and the like.

    I mean, furries have been an internet punch line since the late 90's and in this day where nothing is private, they can't exactly deny the fact that their fandom is driven primarily by sexual deviancy for much longer (and it's not like that it was much of a secret to begin with).

    Stuff like Rainfurrest and that furry convention in Atlanta are only damaging the already sullied reputation of furries even further, and let's be honest, the furries themselves are digging their own metaphorical graves with the proliferation of increasingly bizarre fetishes and the inability to keep that shit behind closed doors.

    More importantly the recent political autism within this fandom (Alt Furries and Antifa Furries both come to mind) is putting stress on a structure that wasn't up to code in the first place.

    I'm honestly convinced that furries as a major fandom will be a thing of the past in the next decade or so, with all the bad press and bad karma they've accumulated over the last fifteen or so years.

    I'm sure you'll still have furry fetishists here and there, and there will probably still be furry porn if you know where to look, but with all that has happened, I doubt you'll see fursuiters in public or major furry conventions for much longer

    Best case scenario for the furry fandom is that the furries who are left will get their shit together, establish some basic codes of conduct, and keep things secret and confidential, similar to how the BDSM community generally does things (which is what the furries should have done from the beginning)

    Worst case scenario, the greater furry fandom will self-destruct in a manner similar to how the bronies are currently falling apart, and then they'll be little more than a distant memory and a crude joke about 2000's and 2010's internet pop culture, the same way Goths and Trekkies were to 1980's and 1990's pop culture. Personally, I am thinking this is the more likely scenario and I'm kind of hoping for this one given all the cringe I have seen from the furry fandom (no offense to any furries here on the Farms).

  12. I've noticed there's already some age splits with regards to how said furries act towards each other. I've seen furries who will straight up refuse to talk to newfags or younger furries for that very reason, along with the fact they all act like teenagers.

    When con attendance numbers fall and major cons start to close up for reasons other than poor management (like most of the high profile cons that shut down), that's when you'll know the fandom is truly dying, or at least going back to how it was 10-15 years ago.

    Either that will happen or it'll get "mainstreamed" and the sexual stuff will get pushed out/stigmatized and if that happened expect more furries in charge to take the Uncle Kage or European con approach of banning anything that makes them look bad, in some cases before it even gets to that point.

  14. I personally think that things have gotten so bad that we're way past the point that furries will ever be considered "mainstream" and chances are, the fandom will either die out or downsize to how it was in the late 1990's and early 2000's when it was very underground and nobody in mainstream pop culture knew what a furry was.

    But then again, you never know. Freakish things can happen.

  15. I'm an optimist. The fandom has grown massively in population over the past few years. As more and more kids become open to new ideas (less controlled by their parent's ideology) it's only going to keep growing.

    I won't lie, I like the fandom. I've met quite a few decent, and successful, people in it. I've also met people I think need a bullet in the head for the better of humanity. It's a mixmatched group like any fandom, but it's generally okay. But I have this seething hatred for the fandom at the same time. Blatant defending of sexual predators, scam artists and kiddy diddlers are the three things that'll be the end of this all. Next to the white nationalism and the JW scene that thinks it needs to control what people think (with most having their hearts in the right place which is unfortunate).

    Right now the fandom is trying to cleanse as I think you've noticed, but it's going to be a hard battle because the leadership isn't fully on board or maybe even involved in what needs getting goned.

    (Edit) I said kids. A lot of people join the fandom young. I joined it in 2007 at around 15. gives you an idea as to why there's so many potential kiddy diddlers saying "cub art is just a fantasy" hanging around, yeah?

  16. Under any other circumstance I'd just drop a powerlevel joke on your head, but I kind of agree with you on some things, and yet you still don't got that grip on shit my dude.

    The fandom isn't trying to cleanse at all, it's merely sweeping shit under the rug, and even then the only ones that are doing so are the leftyfurs, purely because they're fucking bored. They don't got altfurry anymore (I took care of that shit) so now they're stuck with all this pent up autstic rage trying to vent it out onto anyone, and they for some odd reason chose the cubfurs, which is funny considering they are probably on inkbunny uploading on that site right now. That being said the ones trying to "cleanse the filth" are very small, and the rest of the furries are just doing what they've done for two decades.

    By the way, telling people how old you are is a great way to have someone dox your ass.
