Well furries dont’ really have a specific origin the term furry wasn’t even used to describe furries until some time in the 70s but antho stuff can be seen in art from almost any time period.

I don’t claim to be an expert on the origins of the fandom, but I’d say Rich and Maik50 have it at least basically covered.

That second picture is sexy. Not porn, just hot looking and cute

Yeah, I figured most reasonable people would think that. :3
I mean, I’m not against sexual images and whatnot in art just because it’s sexual. It’s not just about content, but context.

How that nyanfox is related to easter? :0

Aren’t rainbows symbols of Easter, too? Or at least of Spring in general? I think that’s the connection.
I don’t think the artist said anything specific about Easter, but I’m pretty sure rainbows are connected to at least Spring in general, if not Easter especially.
Well, whatever the case be, if nothing else, let us enjoy it for its simple, NyanFox goodness.

I don’t think any of you understand. I was on kong with my friend who showed me the furry fandom when that episode came on. I was just sitting down, normal day and everything, and a regular CSI episode was playing in the background of my house. All of a sudden I look over and see somebody in a fursuit on television, and I start freaking out. Me and my friend (formal furry, named blarg on here) sat and watched the rest of the episode laughing our asses off. I’m amazed that I remember the exact moment that the fandom was brought to your attention.

A sick guy with plushophilia is to blame.

I haven’t seen the whole episode, but I saw just a little smidge of it, enough to know which episodeis ‘that’ episode.
That must have been a funny experience though. You just being shown the fandom and its what-nots and you turn around and it’s like OMG IT’S ON C.S.I. LAWLZ!

Yup. If we could ask them, those people back then may or may not consider themselves ‘furries,’ but whatever the case be, anthro-animals have been in culture and whatnot for, if not since the beginning, then for a VERY LONG TIME.

I can understand that, and I would think that there would eventually come a time where I would get burnt-out on it if I was overexposed. I’m just yet to reach that point, presuming it’s there. XD

Hello there, Aeon. I’ve seen you on the list, but I don’t remember the last time you were in here. Welcome back!

well yeah like I said the term furry wasn’t used until the 70s when the first Furry cons had started… I have been doing furry research to learn about it’s origin and all that good stuff to give people a better answer about the questions that have about furries

Also Welcome back Aeon :3

Something I thought y’all might find at least somewhat interesting…
This isn’t a ‘furry band,’ and I would think these lyrics relate to the fact that humans are, in all fairness, a species of animals, but I figured ‘What the heck, it sounds kinda cool.’

I am not a mechanism.
I am part of the resistance.
I am an organism.
An animal!
A creature!
I
AM
A
BEAST!

This is from a heavy metal song called ‘Artificial Immortality’ by the band Becoming The Archetype. If you’re curious to hear the whole song, here ya go. If you don’t like metal though, then, well, don’t listen to it lol.

Well, some things I have seen that could show the eruption of the “modern” fandom are back in the world wars. There was a unit, I cannot remember which, but it was a military unit that was so adamant about their tasks that they would don wolf costumes and dance, a ritual of sorts. Now, when they returned, some people saw fit to draw what they thought they were. I am unsure of whether it was spiritual animal based and anthropomorphizing animals, but that was one of the first occurrences where “furries” were spawned.
