My FA $0.02

While I'm not a regular on FA and can really care less (sorry Preyfar) I just wanted to drop a comment about the drama that has ensued there and spilled over into LJ. People need to remember that the furry fandom is a spinoff of the science fiction and FANTASY fandom. Unless you're a total furry lifestyler, all of this stuff that we do is (or should be) for fun. This is an escape from reality for a short period of time. Since we're sexual beings our fantasies can and usually do slip into the X-rated realms. There is nothing wrong with that in fact it is quite normal and very pleasurable. How many times have you heard someone say in movies, tv, songs, etc that the person was thinking about someone else during sex. When you masturbate do you simply move a paw (or toy) over your sex organs or do you fantasize about something that gets you off? One of my strange kinks is that I really like cartoon vore. Fantasizing about being swallowed by a large creature gets me hot. Why? I don't know. It just does. Does that mean that in real life I would actively want to seek out a hungry reticulated python and feed myself to it? No! Do babyfurs out there REALLY want to regress back to infants or is the play and fantasy that is being sought? So when someone says that looking at cartoon kiddie porn means you're a pedophile, is that valid? From what I understand the subject matter portrayed was not adults dominating children as is RL pedo-porn. Perhaps the person pawing off to that image is fantasizing about being young and sweet but fully sexually aware. If that is not your cup of tea, then move on to something else. There is a wide selection out there to serve everyone's needs. I personally think it is a slippery slope to say that one weird kink is disgusting, but another is just fine. Ooooo! Japanese school girls getting raped by tentacles! That's hot! Ewwwww! Scat is sooooo disgusting! But water sports on the other paw....

I hate to see a revival of the Burned Furs. I was dismayed to hear that there is a Burned Furs LJ community. The fandom should not be defined by any sub-group. One the things I constantly hear is how cool we are because we are so open and understanding. To me that's what this should all be about. Unfortunately many people take the hypocritical stance of what I'm doing is correct but anything outside of MY comfort zone should be forbidden. The fandom will always revolve around the love of anthropomorphics. All of the subgroups will always exist somewhere in the great continuum. Just like in politics the tide will swing from more conservative to more "out there." Just go with the flow and ride the waves. Keep your own interests alive in your heart and don't be too bothered by what goes on around you.
