I'm not much into furry characters myself, but I have some friends who are and I never thought of it as particularly odd or strange. As J.
has pointed out before, a Star Trek
message board should be the last of all places where furry fandom is looked down upon.
I do, however, have a problem with some of the art depicting furry characters. Not because I consider it obscene, but rather because most of it looks just the same! I mean, from a purely artistic standpoint; why do so many 'artists' draw their characters in exactly the same unoriginal way? And I'm thinking mostly of all the furries on deviantART
. It's as if they are just copying one another.
