I just found this rather humorous song which does a pretty good job of explaining the furry subculture: The Furry Song. It's fairly good, especially the vocal rant at the end which isn't reproduced in the lyrics sheet.
This. Was. Brilliant!

And you are right, the spoken word part at the end is really interesting. You know, someone should make a song about Trek fans, too. I might give it a shot ...

I managed to track down the post referenced in the "People who can't draw Disney at all well, or at least that's what John K of Ren and Stimpy said on his blog" bit, which you can read here. John does indeed seem to think that a) Disney's Robin Hood launched the furry fandom, and b.) that all the animal stuff Disney and everyone has done for many years has been derivative, unoriginal crap.

Of course, I think Ren and Stimpy was weird and ugly for the sake of being weird and ugly, so I take that with a grain of salt. Sometimes it's possible to be too original.

Re: Furries

I read the first two pages of this thread, then skipped to this one... and the first thing I have to say is ROFLMAO... and next I will quote a snip of one of J O'Lantern's posts from way back there:

...Because I don't walk around in a fursuit talking about yiffing other fursuiters, a reporter wouldn't come within a mile of me, either. It's all about ratings and what brings them in. Nice, normal folks don't do that.
...I had no idea that this was such a deep topic.

Guy who walks around sniffing other people's crotches? Yep. Girl with Spock ears talking about how she's going to have a Klingon child someday? Yep.
First of all, where do I find the girl with Spock ears? I'd like to meet her. Secondly, how is she in any way comparable to the guy who likes sniffing crotches? Eww.

Because both of them are aspects of their respective fandoms that reporters try to find to make everyone else look like they're crazy.

Of course. I do actually get the point you were making; it just made me laugh the way you said it.

Personally, I like Disney-character style animated figures and all, and if somebody wants to strap on some whiskers or ears, that doesn't seem wierd at all to me. In any case, I wouldn't be presumptuous enough to judge anyone as wierd for associating themselves with this fanbase, though I don't think that I could personally ever muster an obsession over animal characters.

Also, if people somewhere want to dress up like animals and mate that way, more power to 'em; just let me step out of the room first.

Sorry, she's with me. Don't look at her or you will try the taste of the plak tow.

I should have known... Ever since the Vulcan planet got blown up in STXI, the dating scene has been marred by an awful lack of available women who are capable of logical thought.
