Every bit as awkward and painful as it should be.
Credit where credit's due, this isn't much worse than the traditional church weddings I've witnessed.
The bride isn't so much a furry as a hoodie. It also lets you see her face, which will cause employment problems in the future.
Remember, kids: If you can't afford a full fursuit for the biggest mistake you'll ever capture on video, find the money for a rental. The plausible deniability will be well worth the investment.
I think it's a "he", as in it's two men getting "married." Or maybe one of the men is playing a female furry or something. Jesus, I don't know.
The logic is still sound. I'm not sure on the wedding etiquette for same-sex marriages. Is the title of bride or groom optional or gender-specific?
Wouldn't it be freaky if it turned out to be two women the whole time?
I dunno, it's kind of nice that after being exposed to all of the awful things the internet has had to offer in recent years I can still find something as "simple" as an awkward fursuit wedding cringeworthy and that furries are still pretty awful.
Oh sure, some people say other internet-enabled "subcultures" have surpassed them and that they're passe but furries haven't gone away, furrydom is still here and it's still terrible way for people to be.
And when two Furries screw,
They still say, "I Love you"
On that you can rely!

I've got to admit, the moving mouth on the lion conducting the ceremony is a nice touch.
What would it take to be so shamed and embarrassed by your true self that you spend one of the most important moments in your entire life dressed up in a lie in order to tolerate it?
What have we, as a whole, done to produce people like this?
Protect pedophiles in lieu of an organization's reputation?
Leave school shootings as the headline and not an exposition?
Blaming potential thought influences rather than patterns of though?
Enable a society of polarized patriotism?
That's the most I can think that's been done that even remotely bears the subject.
>>"really extreme symptom of self-disgust laid on top of a cultural foundation that encourages such concepts as original sin, the toxicity of man, and the idealization of 'unique' individuals."
I disagree; I think this reading of the furry fandom - while sensible, obvious, and not completely without empirical support from the fandom's own discourse - is based largely on ad-hoc, after-the-fact rationalization. I do not buy the theory that furries got to be the way they are through some complex process of existential disintegration. Furries are not complex creatures, and most have been the way they are since childhood; the level of sophistication required to parse concepts like "the toxicity of man" does not occur in their minds until well AFTER they've been infected and thoroughly compromised. While such existential angst may account in part for some of their more extreme behavior patterns, the principle drive, I fear, is actually quite banal, bordering stupid. I submit that Furries are simply lonely children who grew up watching too much TV; specifically, Western children's television programming, with it's heavy emphasis on "talking animal" programs. These children, for whatever reason isolated from traditional sources of social development (their peers and family), learned their critical early-developmental lessons almost exclusively from cartoon animals. To these children, alone in their living rooms, cartoon animals WERE their social world, more real to them than their absent humans peers. Naturally, this became the mode of society they were accustomed to, and like most lessons learned in early childhood, it stuck.
In other words, although many (most? all?) furries seem to be disaffected misanthropes, this is incidental, and not the root cause of their obsession. Rather, *furries are the end result of an entire child-society turned feral*.

Knowing how costuming feels, it can be a thrill and kind of a deep experience, from being on the world's stage, being seen as your animal, or to feel like a simulation of what you are inside. Every time I take my Dog costume off, I pause and reflect on that for a moment.
I can see where something that might be that meaningful to those Furs and shared between them would be part any vows they would take. They could have met in Furry fandom and they're taking a logical step. Knowing Furs, to not include something Furry in a wedding would be the weird thing.
I think there are lots of reasons for Furry, I know that the lighthearted side of it is pushed by Furry leadership as what you should show to the outside world, but it ends up being a more complex picture than that.
Lots of Furs like the release, they might work at a job that's boring by comparison, and get the chance to let loose on the weekend. Many feel a closer connection to an animal nature that they might have, like an alter ego they're nurturing, an animal side to themselves, or deeper as some level of 'Were-animal'. It can be a fun social scene, and a means of sexual liberation and experimentation in a place where it's understood.
I think Furs are being rebellious, being told to move along and stop enjoying something they like because adults tell them they are too old for it. The echos of that are strong with me, I have a reaction when I see that kind of unfairness now.
Those are all strong themes in life, so I can see why a Furry wedding in costume would happen.
I do think that talking animal shows would have an effect on future Furs. I know I loved them, they were people to me, and still are. My favorite series right now is Dog With A Blog, with Stan the talking family Dog.
Yeah Homer, I've been gone on Dogs forever..
Was this a "legit" marriage or just for show? The "power vested in me by the fandom" and "committed mates" lines suggest to me that this was not a legally recognized marriage ceremony.

Definitely not legally binding. It's just for show and is an excuse to have even hotter even sweatier fursuit butt sex later in the evening.
You know, thinking about it, I'm struck by an odd thought.
These two are quite clearly both men, so we could interpret this as either a "gay marriage" or a "furry marriage". Now, I think regardless of one's political loyalties, everyone would agree that furry marriages are FAR more bizarre and worthy of ridicule than gay marriages. They are universally reviled. And yet I can't imagine any reasonable situation in which someone would propose a BAN on furry marriages, not if the fursuiting weirdos were a man and a woman.

Why exchange collars? Isn't a collar a symbol of submission and humiliation for a wild animal?
Look at who submitted this video! Didn't you have the power to stop this?!
(p.s. this is adorable and I hope they enjoy a happy life together)
