When I first heard about furries, I thought they were all sex crazed perverts who deserved to be mocked.
Then I took the time to explore the fandom and came to see just how rich a culture there is within the fandom.
It’s my hope that the folks who mock and deride otherkin will one day do the same…take the time to explore and learn and not judge based on the loudest or most extreme elements.
Yup, first time I heard of furries was in the context of people having sex in fursuits, so that’s what I thought it meant. Thankfully, I learnt more later.
I don’t get girls who fantasize about having sex with other girls, or even take steps into actually doing it themselves, but still consider themselves straight.
I think some people need to check on definitions of words…
liminalbeast said: I took hormones for a time, then stopped (before starting again years later). Not much happened. What is it they wanted to know?
This person is biologically male, but is confused about whether he identifies as an effeminate gay man or as a woman (so I use “he” since he didn’t tell me to say something else). So, it’s not the same thing as with ftm, I guess? The question was “Do you what happens if you take hormone treatment and grow breasts, and then stop taking the hormones?”
I admit I know very little about transition stuff, and even less about specific mtf questions…
Weird thing happened to today: an old acquaintance to me on facebook suddenly wanted to discuss his thoughts about his gender identity with me, asking for advice on hormones and stuff… We haven’t met in years, he has never mentioned this topic to me before.
So I’m like O.o
I’m cis. I can be supportive and stuff, but I don’t have any idea about what happens if you start taking hormones and then stop?? I think that is a question for a doctor…
This is what you get when you were the team captain for a game you played with friends as a teenager. Everyone thinks you know everything.
