DAY 234 – Purrrrrrr!

“Hey mom, you know how I said I was really a girl trapped in a boys body? Well…I’m really a cat trapped in a human’s body…”

Well it’s the middle of the night and I thought I’d make a new post! This is a picture of me drawn ever so graciously by my mate, Sam. In seeing some of my Fursona pictures my mom started getting uppity about furries and what they do. So, a few weeks later, me and my mate decide it might be cool to fly down to PA for Anthrocon this year and the topic came up in conversation with my parents. My mom instantly jumps to the conclusion that all furries are horny fursuiters who hump each other in yiff piles, based off of what she saw on CSI, god knows how many years ago. She then freaks out and tells me I cannot be a furry.

It’s funny how much she reacts to the idea of me being a furry compared to when I came out to her as being Trans. In a way her reaction was kind of similar except this time she just said “No, I do not want you to be a furry!” I think both reactions stem from not understanding, and being afraid of the unknown. I’m sure before I came out to her the only notion of what a transgender or transsexual person was came from television or stories she heard.

For this reason I think it is important to spread awareness about these kind of things to better educate the general public and remove the stigma surrounding them.

I think the Anthrocon website did a very good job explaining what the term furry really means. That description can be found here.

On the notion of spreading education I am going to try and collect all the helpful transgender related links I can find and put them in a new section to better educate those going through transition and those who simply want to learn more about it!

I think thats about it for tonight, but keep an eye out for a new section with helpful links!

    Well you see the difference between being “male trapped in female body” and “human trapped in cat body” is that the former actually has a physiological basis

  2. gingertrap says :

    I understand that, saying I wanted to be a cat was more figurative speech. I was being somewhat sarcastic because most people think all furries actually feel like they are animals trapped in a humans body. ๐Ÿ˜›

  3. CryptoAnarchist says :

    I forgive you for being a furry. Also, your hair is girlfriendtastic. 10/10 โค

    lol. The yiff piles part made me laugh. I actually remember that CSI episode!

    Your friend Sam is a good drawer ๐Ÿ™‚

    Its funny how that one episode could completely change a persons opinion of furries, I wonder how many other people base their understanding of furries off that episode or other drama portrayals.

    She is, maybe I will post more of her stuff in the future ๐Ÿ™‚

    • TallTran says :

      I think most people have a strong negative opinion of things they don’t understand very well, and if an episode like that misinforms them, they just go on believing it :(.
