    It's the latter. I don't thing we have an echo for "borderline socially acceptable bestiality", though.

    is being a furry a hobby or just a type of sickness

    It is most certainly a hobby, just like any other fandom. Especiall if you get into the costuming or art aspect of the fandom.

    There is NOTHING that goes on in the furry fandom that does not also happen in any other fandom. Hell, Sports fans are worse than any furry I've ever met.

    Now, right there you proved that you don't know a single thing about the fandom.

    I need to find the graphic I saw on the internet a bunch of years ago - it
    was a hierarchy of sci-fi/fantasy fan groups - who's cooler than whom.

    ble bestiality", though.

    I think it is about dressing up, just like any of the other fancons, except people dress up as animals, or animal characters, instead of comic book characters (which could also be furry animals).

    I don't think it has anything to do with getting it on with animals. There
    was an episode of CSI: several years ago that did not paint it in the best light, though.

    LOL :-) Furries are a definite head scratcher...

    Or, what my theory presupposes is, maybe I know too much?

    I've known furries. It does. Maybe not all of them, but a certain subset of them ruin it for everyone else. And those that insist it isn't a thing are just enabling those that want to fuck a fox.

    That's pretty cool. I just kind of glanced at it, but what I saw looked pretty spot on. Thanks for finding that.

    Actually, the costuming is a very SMALL part of the fandom as the vast majority of furs can not afford the fursuits. Thos things can run anywhere from $300 (for just a head) to several THOUSAND dollars for a full suit.
