Oh, this radar-blip of an event from three weeks ago that most of us have forgotten about already? OK.
Some furs in my local group were upset about this and how it made them feel to be in the same fandom as these people. Personally, I don't concern myself with it because the fandom has grown so much in the last ten years that it's like: what the hell do a couple of turds in Nebraska who I've never-even-heard-of have to do with me? The fandom's still a small world in many ways, yeah, but it's also been large enough for long enough that I stopped expecting it to have unanimous solidarity in anything a long time ago. Not only that, but in my IRL experience people who aren't preoccupied with the internet like we are don't even know
how pornographic furry is; their entire impression is that it's a costume thing.
Tangent: I'm pondering whether or not the fandom might grow even more in the next five-ish years because it looks like there are a lot
of kids on TikTok falling in love with the costume part of furry because of fursuit clips. Not that I use the app, but certainly I'm not the only one who has seen the compilation videos floating around in YouTube's recommendations? Speaking of furry YouTube, there are a handful of channels with 100K-200K subscribers and counting, and ClappedSeal appears to have somehow gained
subs by going full furry, and many of them are more than likely young people like him. Meanwhile, being caught enjoying "Feral NSFW" is extremely problematic and scandalous amongst a lot of teenaged furs (no, really).>>3715112>>3715185
Not quite correct. Yeah, it was finally posted just three weeks ago, but the exchange pictured happened over six years ago. See how it says "July 5, 2017" at the top of the first phone screenshot?
