Furry People to the Rescue

In an about face, so to speak, I will report some “good news” to offset my regular  reporting about weird people sexually abusing animals, themselves, and their stuffed Teddy Bears (see previous blog posts). In Pittsburgh they hold the annual convention of “Furries” known as Anthrocon. This is not to be confused with DragonCon, which involves thousands of sci-fi and cartoon freaks and geeks, like my 25 year old son and  girlfriend. Unlike DragonCon attendees, Furries dont just dress up and go to important meetings and “panel discussions” on Star Wars, Star Trek and a zillion other anime and gaming characters that I’ve never heard of.  “Furry” people enjoy roleplaying and dressing up as animals in elaborate furry costumes and full headgear. Sometimes they stay in character regarding their chosen/preferred animal identity and socialize/ sexualize with one another. In other words, a certain “vocal minority” of Furries sexually get off on playing foxes, bears, coyotes, birds and bees….essentially Disney characters in heat. The good news is that Furries stick together and support each other as well as their out of costume Furry supporters. Here is a news story and video about Furries pitching in to help a certain restaurant owner stay in business. They really know how to get their tails in gear when somebody needs a helping hand…or paw. Sexual fact and Extra credit for readers: Erotic or sexual behavior between Furries is called “yiffing”.
