hey you know what maybe nerds dressing up as animals and screwing each other aren't something worth decrying in this world?

Furries became reviled because they were the first fetish/obsession to try to escape the internet. That's basically it. The ones who introduced it into their lives outside the internet, who declared it to be their identity and/or sexuality - there's at least some who can seldom have a conversation without talking about it - they're the ones who ruined the fandom's reputation. They may not all be like that, but what matters is that 'furrydom' really did try to escape the internet into mainstream society, and mainstream society pushed back.

Of course, the internet is still changing mainstream society, just more slowly. The internet is a place of anonymity and connectivity. Peoples' fetishes and obsessions can thrive on the internet because its anonymity practically lets them live second lives, and its connectivity enables them to find similar people. Those fetishes, obsessions and other strange interests would normally be kept behind closed doors, repressed, or even quashed by the norms of mainstream society. But now, they can thrive, and they don't exactly go away when you get off the computer. Will the 'barrier' between the internet and mainstream society continue to hold? Time will tell.

Yeah you tell them, waugh!

Waugh - 2014-08-31
the only barrier you imagine between the internet and society as we know it is drawn along class lines - that thing chomsky said about how it's an intrinsically elitist institution, in a world where literacy is still taken for granted.

and yeah fetish is definitely a more succinct word there than something like "paraphilia", people identified with and even dressed up like animals for ages before they had to turn to cartoons to get into it.


as for "evilhomer", i've told you EXACTLY what i think of you QUITE A WHILE AGO, so see what you get for skipping confession and trying to mouth off, fucker.

Maybe whining on the Internet as a peaceful interlude between all caps screeds is also not worth worrying about, Waugh, but here you are.

There is a GIGANTIC difference between the Internet and real world, and only manchildren don't know that.

Waugh - 2014-08-31
fools would say the same thing about high school and life afterward, too.
not so.

Waugh - 2014-08-31
you're going down, too. see if you don't!

EvilHomer - 2014-08-31
I'm glad you're my friend, waugh!

p.s. you're baleen, aren't you? At first I thought you were Chet, but only baleen talks about Chomsky.

EvilHomer - 2014-08-31
Also, do you have a fursona? You seem like a "wolf" to me.

memedumpster - 2014-08-31
Your highschool example more than excellently proves my manchild point.

Waugh, please use the ACA (if you're 'Murican) to get a psychiatrist, and please ask them to read this site so they can explain to you how this is not the real world, or healthy for someone of your delicate sensitivities to random ambient environmental nerd noises.

Assuming, of course, you're not baleen. I much prefer his CenaMark and SolRo characters though.

hey you know what maybe nerds having stupid opinions on a dying video aggregation site isn't something worth decrying in this world?
Waugh - 2014-08-31
1. what the fuck are you even doing here so late, then? 2. who the fuck are you, who cares who the fuck you think you are? 3. if you think you have any idea what i'm actually here for, or that you know enough to condescend to me, you're hopeless.

4. greg louganis yourself into a dumpster, you unbelievable idiot.
