For those people out there ho think furries are nothing but freaks- let me put something into perspective for you.
On the last Triangle Area furmeet I attended, there were a few individuals in a suit. We were at pullen park in Raleigh, so the suiters decided to fur-up and head on down to the park where the kids were playing. It was open to the public after major reconstruction, so it was packed with parents and lots of small kids. One gentleman and his, I assume mother, caught up with myself and 2 of my suiting friends before we got down to the park. He seemed to have some sort of mental disability, I think downs syndrome, and was totally ecstatic to see giant walking animals at the park. He was so excited to get pictures, and his mother came up to us and thanked us for doing something so kind for the people there. One child in particular caught my eye, however. She was a young girl, I want to say between 8-12, and she was in a chair with (I think) cerebral palsy. She couldn't move or speak, but she was smiling from ear to ear seeing this big kitty cat infront of her. We took pictures with her and spoke to her sister. The mother or grandmother of the child in the chair was so moved to see her child this happy, I thought she was going to cry.
Being a furry is more than just meeting other furs and false accusations of being "sexual deviants". I've learned this first hand after a few years of being apart of the fandom. Please take this into consideration before you bash someone Thanks ♥
