“Well it's not a question of wanting to be a mouse... it just sort of happens to you. All of a sudden you realize... that's what you want to be.”
Furryism is a condition in which a furry person (members of the furry fandom are known as furry fans, furries, or furs) self-identifies as a member of an animal species. Furryism often manifests itself as an agonizing dysphoria toward one's birth species. If untreated, it can sometimes lead to fursuiting, which will often begin in local zoos, where potential furry suitors for courting abound.
Furryism is contracted at childhood. If your child comes in contact with a costume character or mascot, plays with a stuffed animal, or watches a movie or television show with talking animals he or she will inevitably become a furry. There is no full cure, but some are led to believe that Hentai can halt the effects of Furryism, although if used too much this will cause the afflicted child to become Wapanese.
As of 1981 furries are protected under the Wildlife and Countryside Act and hunting them for their pelts is no longer legal in the Lower 48 States of the United States.
A fursona is a anthropomorphic animal that someone has created similar to a "persona" in this case, furson's are often a way to show a differnt side of yourself eithout having to worry about gender and such. Fursona's can range from any animal wolves,cats,horses,dragons etc. Fursonas are also a way to identify a character within the furry community.
Dedicated furries devote considerable time to their animalistic smell ("yiff") as well as their costumes ("fursuits"). The inability of the skin to breathe in fursuits often adds to the furry's distinctive yiff considerably, and certain furries (such as those who use a skunk fursona) may be very yiffy indeed.
Film Stars and Superheroes
About 70% of furries gain super powers from their fursuits, such as the ability to watch Hentai without vomiting, and the ability to read furry-comics without laughing. Super-furries include Batman (bat), Spiderman (spider), Catwoman (cat) and Superman (also cat).
Han-Solo's best buddy Chewbacca is also a dedicated furry, rarely seen outside of his fursuit.
The most notorious furry organisation is PETA (well known for their slogan "We'd rather do it fursuited than wear nothing"), whose exhibitionist members often show off their bizarre perversion in public.
Many believe that the furry community may also have a deep-seated allegiance with such hotels as the The Red Roof Inn and Bestwestern, as these fine lodgings are where they hold many of their Fur Conventions, or "Cons". Or maybe they're just attracted to perpetually hot meth towns, who knows.
