if something makes you miserable at some
00:02
point you just have to stop doing it so
00:04
what this video serve is my resignation
00:06
from the furry community I could in the
00:08
video right here but undoubtedly people
00:11
want to know my reasons why so let me
00:13
tell you just how awful the furry
00:15
community actually is I’m not the kind
00:21
of person who usually calls people
00:23
degenerates or cares about societies and
00:25
moral expectations I’m pretty deep into
00:27
the furry sexuality stuff myself but
00:30
even I know that you probably shouldn’t
00:32
fuck animals and you definitely
00:35
shouldn’t fuck kids but there is a
00:37
sizable chunk of the furry community who
00:39
do at least one of these things when I
00:42
first joined the community about 15
00:43
years ago I was 14 years old almost
00:46
immediately upon entering the community
00:48
I was tempted into online sexual
00:50
encounters by older men they do things
00:53
like roleplay cuddling to groom me into
00:55
getting used to increasingly sexual
00:57
situations at the time I wasn’t bisexual
01:00
and had no interest in men so they’d use
01:02
furry female characters as their avatars
01:04
so I’d have less of a problem with it
01:06
this would change over time as they
01:08
introduced me to their other characters
01:09
it would start with sexual roleplay with
01:12
their characters but eventually led to
01:14
talk about sex in real life culminating
01:16
and wanting to meet up for real-life sex
01:19
I was always smart enough to tell them
01:20
no which usually led to an argument
01:22
anger and the ending of the friendship
01:25
this didn’t happen just once this
01:28
happened numerous times over the years
01:30
to me between the ages of 14 and 17 of
01:33
course I was just a horny kid without
01:34
the knowledge or life experience to know
01:36
what was going on so I never reported
01:38
any of those people and it’s been too
01:39
long for me to remember their names at
01:40
this point the kicker here is that I
01:42
fully believe that most of the people
01:44
who were and are still involved in this
01:46
are too delusional to actually realize
01:48
what they are doing or that there’s
01:50
anything wrong with it if you are
01:52
underage in the furry community it is
01:54
almost a certainty that you will be
01:56
approached by someone who will try to
01:58
prey on you they are smarter than you
02:00
and they will use your emotions against
02:02
you they will lie about their age and
02:04
gender and you won’t know I’ve seen
02:07
people try to downplay the amount of
02:08
pedophiles in the furry community but
02:11
they fail to realize one thing the
02:13
every community is a gathering place for
02:15
horny teens who just want to be your
02:17
slave whoo if you don’t think actual
02:20
practicing pedophiles flock to the furry
02:23
community you are a fucking moron but
02:26
let’s move on to everyone’s favorite
02:27
topic now it’s no secret that about 20%
02:29
of the fairy community our
02:31
self-proclaimed zoo files I have no
02:33
doubt that at least half of those people
02:34
are actively involved in bestiality or
02:36
have been at some point in their lives
02:38
in my mind in concept there isn’t much
02:41
of a difference between sex with an
02:42
animal and sex with a child both are
02:45
cases where one party’s taking advantage
02:47
of the difference in mental acuity level
02:49
of understanding and power I’ve heard
02:51
many arguments like but my dog likes it
02:54
well my 14 year old self certainly liked
02:56
getting sexual tension from older more
02:58
experienced people but that doesn’t make
03:00
it right my point is that practicing
03:03
pedophiles and Zoo files are extremely
03:05
common in the furry community but let’s
03:07
move on because even without the rampant
03:08
criminal activity the fairy community
03:10
still has plenty of other problems with
03:12
sexuality many people in the furry
03:15
community are borderline sociopathic
03:18
when it comes to sex they will
03:20
constantly push themselves on you for
03:22
role play forcing you to block them and
03:24
even after that they will make new
03:25
accounts and try to win you over in some
03:27
new way sometimes they will go as far as
03:30
to blackmail you or otherwise threaten
03:32
you for not role-playing with them they
03:34
will use emotional manipulation or
03:36
outright light to get sex from you
03:38
oddly enough I’ve noticed that some of
03:40
the worst perpetrators of this kind of
03:41
behavior are actually underage these
03:44
kids absolutely do not care about you or
03:47
the amount of trouble you would get in
03:49
for engaging in sexual activity with a
03:51
minor they will absolutely try to
03:53
destroy your life for their own sexual
03:55
pleasure if you need examples of this
03:57
you can look at one of dishonored Wolf’s
03:59
recent videos where he goes into depth
04:00
about this exact thing
04:02
fortunately I’m suspicious and
04:05
distrusting enough to have never been
04:06
tricked into getting involved in
04:07
something like this but even the other
04:09
age people aside there’s still many
04:11
grown adults who do the exact same thing
04:13
they will pressure you into sexual
04:15
roleplay constantly I tend to be kind of
04:18
a pushover and don’t block people when I
04:20
should and this has led to various
04:21
individuals attempting to get some kind
04:23
of sexual activity out of me for years
04:26
even
04:26
after me telling them hundreds of times
04:28
that I have no interest in them about 10
04:31
to 20% of my daily interactions with
04:33
furries is just turning people down who
04:36
want online sexual roleplay and that is
04:39
not an exaggeration now I’m pretty
04:41
liberal I’m usually not the kind of
04:43
person to care about how often people
04:45
have sex or who they have sex with or
04:47
what kind of sexual activities they do
04:49
as long as they’re illegal but being
04:51
part of the furry community has made me
04:53
wonder if I should re-evaluate that
04:55
there are people in the furry community
04:57
infected with life destroying STDs like
05:00
HIV who still have sex with dozens of
05:02
people usually without the courtesy of
05:04
telling them they’re giving away a death
05:06
sentence we see these fun little charts
05:08
pop up every now and then of who fucked
05:10
who would a furry convention because as
05:12
it turns out uh-oh a few of those people
05:15
had HIV some of these people will have
05:17
sex with nine ten or upwards of a dozen
05:20
people over the course of a three day
05:21
convention now that’s kind of impressive
05:23
in its own way and I don’t want to judge
05:25
others by how often they have sex but I
05:28
just feel like rampantly spreading
05:29
disease throughout the community is
05:31
somewhat of a bad thing and obviously
05:33
not everyone with HIV does this but the
05:35
problem is it only takes one person
05:37
doing this to destroy dozens of people’s
05:40
lives knowing the lengths I’ve seen some
05:42
furries go to to try to get some sort of
05:44
sexual activity I have no doubt in my
05:46
mind that it is common practice to lie
05:48
about if you’ve got any sort of disease
05:50
or just lie about being tested in the
05:52
first place or just not be tested in the
05:54
first place also you can manipulate
05:56
people into having unprotected sex
05:59
so having sex with a furry especially at
06:01
a furry convention just seems a bit like
06:03
playing Russian roulette it even makes
06:06
dating a fairy dangerous because you
06:08
never know if they are the kind of sex
06:09
obsessed psycho who hides their various
06:11
STDs from you tricking you into thinking
06:14
that monogamous sex with them is safe
06:16
which sadly isn’t as uncommon as you
06:19
would hope the sex obsession in the
06:21
fandom is so bad that it seems to melt
06:24
some people’s brains into a sort of
06:26
sticky white goo I’ve noticed that
06:28
generally the longer someone has been
06:30
part of a fairy community the more
06:32
likely it is that they can’t actually
06:34
hold much of a conversation the only
06:36
thing they seem to think about or want
06:38
to talk about is related to sex
06:40
they don’t really know how to speak to
06:42
you outside of flirting sexual RP or
06:44
linking porn now I do like to flirt and
06:47
I like to roleplay or look at porn once
06:48
in a while but I can’t imagine doing
06:50
those things 24/7 the amount of times
06:53
I’ve gotten bewildered stares because I
06:55
said I didn’t want to talk about sex is
06:57
kind of a testament that this really is
06:59
all some of these people know they don’t
07:01
seem to understand that there’s more to
07:03
having a personality than your sexual
07:05
orientation and what kinks you have
07:07
overall I feel like the furry community
07:10
can almost be viewed like a failed
07:12
social experiment what would happen if
07:14
we broke down all the rules of normal
07:16
society and got rid of all taboos and
07:18
only ever encouraged people to do
07:20
whatever degenerate sexual thing they
07:22
wanted and to be honest I am guilty of
07:24
feeding into this as well I’ve made
07:26
numerous videos defending various kinks
07:28
and other aspects of fairy degeneracy
07:30
though I do want to make one thing
07:31
absolutely fucking clear because a lot
07:33
of the morons out there don’t seem to
07:35
get it
07:36
I only ever defend kinks art and
07:38
fantasies not actions for the first 20
07:43
years of my life I was a pretty devout
07:44
Christian I was raised to believe that
07:47
pretty much anything sexual was wrong
07:49
and you were a bad person for even
07:51
having thoughts but even at a young age
07:52
I knew I was a furry even before I
07:55
joined the fandom I had sexual urges for
07:57
anthropomorphic characters I couldn’t
08:00
help but have those urges and to this
08:02
day I still can’t this absolutely
08:04
tortured me the fact that I was such a
08:07
degenerate and thinking that some
08:08
all-seeing all-knowing power knew this
08:11
too and hated me for it even the people
08:13
around me hated me for it
08:15
other Christians called me a devil
08:17
worshiper for having sexual thoughts
08:19
about dragons so when I turned my back
08:21
on religion and the misery that comes
08:23
with it
08:23
I took it upon myself to let others know
08:25
that they were not hated for having
08:28
those urges and thoughts that they can’t
08:29
control but I thought there was an
08:31
understanding that I was only talking
08:33
about thoughts or artwork when I talked
08:35
about not hating people for having these
08:37
urges I never meant to encourage anyone
08:40
into taking action I still fully believe
08:43
that people should not be hated or
08:45
judged simply for thoughts or urges they
08:47
have no matter how terrible those
08:49
thoughts are
08:50
but the problem with the furry community
08:52
specifically is that for every person in
08:55
the fandom like me encouraging people
08:57
not to feel bad about having a certain
08:59
kink there will be someone else
09:01
encouraging people to act out on those
09:04
urges I never meant to try to normalize
09:06
things like bestiality or pedophilia and
09:09
I don’t like those things myself I only
09:11
ever wanted people to know that I
09:13
understand the struggle of having taboo
09:15
thoughts but everyone else hates you for
09:18
but I think that the whole Kira
09:19
situation was really the final straw
09:21
when I first heard of some of the things
09:23
people were being accused of like sex
09:25
with roadkill I laughed to myself no one
09:29
does that sex with the rotting bloody
09:31
carcass of an animal that’s laughably
09:34
cartoonishly disgusting that’s something
09:36
you think of when you’re drunk to be the
09:38
punchline to some over-the-top joke then
09:41
I saw the videos and the pictures when I
09:46
was doing medical training for the army
09:48
we had to watch videos of animals being
09:50
sliced open so that we could see what
09:52
arterial bleeding and grievous wounds
09:54
will look like on something alive but as
09:57
awful as those videos were and as hard
09:59
as it was to watch it had a purpose it
10:02
served to teach us and to desensitize us
10:04
so that we could save lives someday but
10:07
as desensitized as I am to that kind of
10:09
thing I was not prepared for those zoo
10:12
sadist group videos they served no
10:14
purpose other than the sexual
10:16
gratification of an individual having
10:19
urges is one thing but actually going
10:21
through with it
10:21
torturing animals and fucking their
10:23
corpses and enjoying it on a sexual
10:25
level something is just inhuman about
10:29
that I don’t want to share the same
10:31
species as these people much less the
10:34
same community I can’t make videos
10:37
showing the furry community in a
10:38
positive light anymore I can’t defend
10:40
people’s kinks because whenever I get a
10:42
message from someone who says they
10:44
watched one of my videos and they want
10:45
to be a furry now I just feel it tinge
10:48
of guilt it feels like I’ve just
10:49
recruited someone into an animal
10:51
torturing sex cult
10:57
the furry community is full of some of
10:59
the most hateful vindictive people I’ve
11:01
ever met and at the same time some of
11:04
the most sensitive crybabies imaginable
11:06
almost every furry I’ve ever had the
11:08
displeasure of arguing with has no
11:10
problem spewing hatred insults and
11:12
outright slander what will absolutely
11:15
crumble when given back even a fraction
11:17
of it what’s worse is that the community
11:19
has this habit of wrapping their arms
11:21
around the precious delicate crying baby
11:24
snowflakes and then what I’ve come to
11:26
call cry bleah their perceived
11:28
oppressors across various free chat
11:31
rooms and even in my own discord I’ve
11:33
seen people defend someone who have had
11:34
a minor disagreement with as though I
11:36
just threatened to murder their entire
11:38
family often I hear the excuse you made
11:40
them cry as if shedding a few tears
11:43
prove that something I’ve said was truly
11:45
this unimaginable travesty
11:47
and God forbid that someone I say
11:49
something even slightly abrasive to be a
11:51
woman there are so few women in the
11:54
community that many of them especially
11:56
if they even have a small amount of
11:57
artistic talent are treated as
11:59
incorruptible queens by their group of
12:01
followers and if you dare to so much as
12:04
glare in their direction their army of
12:06
white knights will happily charge in a
12:08
battle boners in hand most furries are
12:11
terrified to have any public opinions
12:14
about anything because they know it
12:16
might upset someone they’re too afraid
12:17
to even be associated with people who
12:20
say things that might rouse the ire of
12:22
the hive mind and don’t worry we’ll talk
12:24
about that later I’ve known people so
12:26
afraid of being judged by other furries
12:28
that they asked not to have their name
12:30
put in the credits of my video as a
12:31
supporter because while they agree with
12:33
the things I say they know that my name
12:35
attached to theirs will probably get
12:37
them put on some kind of blacklist for
12:39
something this is also why when you
12:41
speak to some furries they apologize to
12:43
you a dozen times within the first few
12:45
minutes of meeting you they are so used
12:48
to everyone being so easily offended but
12:51
they preemptively apologize for anything
12:53
that could even somewhat be construed as
12:55
something offensive there’s also a large
12:57
portion of the community who seems to
12:59
hate the idea of bettering themselves in
13:01
any way they seem to very much believe
13:03
in the idea that you should stay a
13:04
mental child for your entire life if
13:06
something upsets
13:08
instead of confronting it you should
13:09
avoid it if someone argues with you you
13:12
should block them even if they were a
13:13
close friend who was only trying to help
13:15
you many fairies seem intent on avoiding
13:18
any negative emotion at all costs if you
13:21
have any sort of anxiety issues or
13:23
problems coping with everyday life you
13:25
will be aggressively coddled you will be
13:28
told to avoid those things entirely you
13:30
will never learn how to deal with stress
13:32
or anxiety but dealing with stress is an
13:35
important part of maturing dealing with
13:37
negative emotions strengthens you as a
13:39
person and allows you to feel less
13:41
stressed and not dealing with it has the
13:43
opposite effect it’s no wonder that so
13:45
many furries are perpetually depressed
13:47
angry and offended when you spend all
13:50
your time running away from these
13:51
emotions even the slightest thing will
13:53
upset you in an attempt to run away from
13:56
these things they only ever make it
13:57
worse for themselves
13:58
many furries just ignore this citing
14:01
some self diagnosed mental illness that
14:03
prevents them from ever maturing as a
14:05
person so they sit and suffer forever
14:07
and are forever coddled by this
14:09
self-destructive community the furry
14:11
community is a bit like Neverland you go
14:13
there and you never grow up you never
14:16
mature mentally emotionally sexually or
14:18
socially maybe that’s the reason why so
14:20
many furries seem to have basically no
14:22
personality they have nothing
14:24
interesting going on in their lives they
14:25
have no opinions about anything all they
14:27
know how to do is be angry and cuddle Rp
14:30
speaking of which on top of being a
14:32
figurative hug box the community is also
14:35
quite a literal one for whatever reason
14:37
the only activity the fairies ever seem
14:39
to want to do is cuddle instead of
14:41
saying hi you get a cuddle roleplay
14:43
response if you ask a question instead
14:45
of an answer you get a hug maybe it’s
14:48
because they know that if they actually
14:49
say anything or have an opinion that
14:51
goes at all against the status quo
14:53
they’ll be chastised by the rest of the
14:55
community or maybe they really just do
14:57
lack the social skills required to hold
14:59
a conversation in any case I do want to
15:02
grow up I do want to better myself even
15:04
if it means becoming a person that says
15:06
things that parts of society don’t
15:08
really agree with having character means
15:10
having character flaws as well so I’m
15:13
leaving the community
15:19
I don’t think anyone would argue that
15:21
the average age of furries is about 19
15:24
years old maybe even younger I also
15:26
don’t think that it’s a stretch to say
15:27
that most people lose interest in being
15:29
furries or at least stop being super
15:31
active in the community by the time
15:32
they’re about 30 what this means is that
15:34
the community is stuck in a perpetual
15:36
high school atmosphere and with that
15:39
comes all of the annoying bullshit that
15:41
you would expect 19 year olds tend to be
15:43
pretty dumb and immature and it’s no
15:45
different for furries they’ll believe
15:47
anything they hear and spread rumors and
15:49
unsubstantiated claims about people
15:51
they’ll judge people and anyone those
15:53
people associate with based on
15:54
fabricated bullshit that makes no sense
15:56
and could be easily rationalized if they
15:58
spent even a few minutes thinking about
16:00
it I’ve had people who I thought were
16:02
good friends completely turn on me
16:04
because of some shit someone else said
16:06
about me to this day there are people I
16:08
was once friends with and will no longer
16:10
talk to me because of some non-issue
16:12
from years ago or because I talked to
16:14
someone that they don’t like as an
16:16
example of just how ridiculous these
16:18
rumors tend to be I get both called a
16:20
Nazi and an sjw depending on who you
16:23
talk to both sides of the fandom which
16:25
we’ll talk about later are absolutely
16:27
sure that I am simultaneously both of
16:29
these diametrically opposed things it’s
16:32
so irrational acclaim but I have a hard
16:34
time even forming an argument against it
16:36
so I’ve stopped trying they then take my
16:39
silence as me admitting guilt this is
16:42
often the case anytime someone blocks
16:44
you ignores you fails to answer a
16:45
question makes their profile private or
16:48
anything similar people take it as an
16:50
admission of some kind of guilt even
16:52
though it’s almost always for the simple
16:54
reason of just not wanting to deal with
16:56
a bunch of idiots many fairies like even
16:58
the most basic of critical thinking
17:00
skills take this tweet for example this
17:03
version has taken upon themselves to
17:04
report any tweet they think might be
17:06
breaking the rules in the tweet I make
17:08
fun of the common trend of naming
17:09
YouTube videos really outlandish and
17:11
provocative things to get views this
17:13
person has taken that as some kind of
17:15
threat because I use the words kill
17:17
yourself it takes someone else to
17:19
convince them that this is not the case
17:20
this isn’t an isolated incident with
17:24
almost every one of my tweets there is
17:26
usually at least one person who has no
17:28
concept of context or humor and they are
17:31
always a furry
17:33
it’s gotten to the point where I’ve
17:34
seriously considered just blocking every
17:36
person on Twitter with a furry avatar
17:38
some of the tweets that I see are so
17:40
stupid that I don’t even feel
17:41
comfortable making fun of them because
17:43
it’s quite possible that the person
17:45
writing them is actually mentally
17:47
handicapped and even if they aren’t
17:49
literally retarded I’d still consider
17:52
their level of intelligence to be a
17:53
disability as I said before anything I’m
17:56
stating here could be said about any
17:57
group of individuals who are around this
17:59
age I didn’t like teenagers when I was a
18:01
teen and I certainly don’t like them now
18:03
that I’m almost 30 it’s not that this
18:05
kind of immaturity is unique to the
18:07
furry fandom it’s more that I don’t want
18:09
to be part of a fandom where this is the
18:11
average of mindset let me be clear not
18:13
all 19-year olds are like this and I
18:15
don’t hate you just because you’re 19 if
18:17
you like my videos that’s fine I’m glad
18:19
you watch them it’s just that I don’t
18:21
really think that we’re going to have
18:23
much in common and I really don’t want
18:25
to hang out in your discord server full
18:26
of your 19 year old friends let me put
18:29
it this way
18:29
think of a group of people you really
18:32
can’t identify with
18:33
for this example we’ll say 10 year old
18:35
girls I seriously doubt that you want to
18:37
play with Barbie dolls or put on makeup
18:39
or whatever it is 10 year-old girls
18:41
usually do things they have fun doing
18:43
seem boring and uninteresting you
18:46
certainly wouldn’t find conversations
18:47
with them to be very stimulating you are
18:49
older and wiser and the problems and
18:51
issues they have seem very small and
18:53
easily fixable to you it’s not a whole
18:56
lot different for me compared to someone
18:58
who is just coming out of high school I
19:00
don’t hate you I’m just not really
19:02
interested in you but it’s not just the
19:05
semi generational differences an
19:07
interest that pushes me away it’s also
19:09
the extreme immaturity and vindictive
19:11
nature that many furries seem to have
19:13
the best examples I can give are things
19:15
that affect me personally on a
19:16
day-to-day basis I run a discord server
19:19
with about 3,000 members most of which
19:21
are furries occasionally some of the
19:24
members of the discord will have some
19:25
kind of issue with me instead of
19:27
approaching me about it or just leaving
19:29
and forgetting about it
19:30
they’ll take it upon themselves to make
19:32
yet another anti Catholics discord
19:34
server
19:35
they’ll manufacture and spread
19:37
misinformation about me they’ll stay in
19:39
my server to find any sort of tidbits of
19:41
information to give the world to try to
19:43
make me
19:43
look bad and they’ll even go as far as
19:46
to support me on patreon just a share
19:48
patreon only rewards with as many people
19:50
as possible in an attempt to sabotage my
19:52
career I’ve spoken to several other
19:54
furries who are somewhat in the public
19:56
eye and this sort of thing happens to
19:57
them too this is the kind of childish
20:00
and vindictive people that the furry
20:01
community is full of just like high
20:03
school the furry community is an ongoing
20:05
popularity contest and attention seeking
20:08
exercise
20:09
it’s no secret and it’s often mocked the
20:11
lengths people will go to when designing
20:13
their characters to be unique so many
20:15
bright colors outlandish designs and
20:18
strange details and much of it is simply
20:20
for the sake of being noticed first
20:22
suiting to is often done just to seek
20:24
attention while people say they do it to
20:27
express themselves going to an actual
20:29
furry convention with tons of fursuiters
20:31
really opened my eyes to the truth of it
20:33
many fursuiters would stand in open
20:36
public places simply to be seen some
20:39
would stand by the entrance of a
20:40
building for hours walking back and
20:42
forth in front of the entry line just to
20:44
be as notice by as many people as
20:46
possible just like their characters
20:48
people often make their first suits as
20:50
flamboyant as possible adding bright
20:52
neon colors LED or strobe effects
20:54
noisemakers any number of other things
20:56
to get people’s attention
20:58
people spend excessive amounts of money
21:00
on fur suits from specific makers
21:02
because for furries it’s much like
21:04
wearing name-brand clothing I know the
21:06
common reason is I like their style but
21:09
that’s the same thing anyone who spends
21:10
$200 on a supreme t-shirt says this is
21:14
more of a personal gripe but it’s always
21:16
baffled me why people would be willing
21:17
to spend thousands of dollars on these
21:19
goofy bizarre giant headed name-brand
21:22
fur suits went for the same price or
21:24
less you could get a more realistic
21:25
looking suit that not only looks way
21:27
cooler and more interesting but would
21:29
fit right in at Renaissance Fairs anime
21:31
or gaming conventions but I think that
21:33
the answer is just that the giant headed
21:35
cartoonish style is trendy right now and
21:37
the only thing that matters is being
21:39
popular I used to watch furry cringe
21:42
compilation videos where people would
21:44
dress in their fur suits and go to
21:45
Walmart or McDonald’s people would stop
21:47
and stare gripping their kids obviously
21:50
distressed at what was going on I used
21:52
to think that maybe the suitors were
21:54
just oblivious to a scene that they were
21:55
causing but now I realized that they
21:57
what specifically to cause a scene
21:59
frankly I get kind of triggered when I
22:02
go to a gaming or anime convention and
22:03
see people in their first suits dancing
22:05
around at the entrance for attention I
22:07
wonder how many furries would appreciate
22:09
if a group of historical reenactors
22:11
dressed up and their Confederate or Nazi
22:13
uniforms and danced around at a furry
22:15
convention I have no interest in dealing
22:18
with high schoolers and people who act
22:20
like them I’ve already been through high
22:22
school once and I hated it then I went
22:25
through it all over again in the Army
22:26
the furry community is in a perpetual
22:29
state of high school and probably always
22:31
will be I have no desire to be part of
22:34
it any longer I don’t use the phrase
22:40
social justice warrior much because it
22:42
doesn’t have a whole lot of meaning
22:43
anymore and it’s mostly just used as an
22:45
insult and I’m not sure I’ve ever met
22:47
someone who self-identified as a social
22:50
justice warrior but if I had to give
22:51
meaning to the phrase I would say it’s a
22:53
form of vigilantism it’s the idea that
22:56
even if something someone does is legal
22:59
if it’s something you personally still
23:01
see as bad they must be punished and a
23:04
large portion of the ferry community
23:05
very much epitomizes this idea of social
23:08
justice vigilantism they have a set of
23:11
rules for how you will behave and they
23:13
will punish you through a variety of
23:15
means for disobeying furthermore they
23:17
carry out this punishment without much
23:19
thought or nuance because well who has
23:21
time for that when you could just attack
23:23
people in a blind rage I call this group
23:25
the hive mind the hive mind knows what
23:27
is best for you for the furry community
23:29
and the world in general the hive mind
23:31
will bring about the next Golden Age
23:33
utopia and will do so through the
23:35
cleansing of the impure the unjust and
23:37
the Weld anyone who disagrees with them
23:40
really you will be assimilated
23:41
resistance is futile
23:43
I’m pretty sure tumblr is pretty much
23:45
dead so the entire platform migrated to
23:47
Twitter
23:47
but if tumblr was a place for angry
23:49
teenage leftist artists to bitch about
23:51
social issues then something tells me
23:53
the majority of its users may have been
23:55
furries you cannot say anything on
23:58
Twitter without at least a dozen or so
23:59
pissed-off 19 year old furries telling
24:02
you how much of a shit person you are
24:03
for a group that talks about how much
24:05
they hate bullying they certainly do a
24:07
lot of it hi mine will go ahead and tell
24:09
you that
24:10
you aren’t welcome in the community over
24:11
the most minor of slights did you tell a
24:14
slightly edgy joke five years ago
24:16
you’re problematic did you express a
24:18
positive sentiment towards someone the
24:20
hive mind doesn’t like problematic have
24:23
you never actually done anything that
24:24
could even be construed as some kind of
24:27
ism oh don’t worry
24:29
the hive mind will find something if you
24:31
even seem like the kind of person who
24:33
may have done something to someone at
24:36
some point in your life the hive mind
24:38
will make you a target they will
24:40
intentionally take things you say out of
24:42
context they will fabricate evidence
24:44
against you and outright lie they will
24:46
approach you and goad you into saying
24:48
something incriminating they will pose
24:50
as a friend or supporter to get you to
24:52
lower your guard they will dig through
24:54
your discord servers message history to
24:56
find things to use against you they will
24:58
bully you harass you docks you and do
25:01
the same thing to your friends they will
25:03
push you to the point of suicide and
25:05
then openly celebrate your death I am
25:07
not exaggerating this has happened one
25:11
of the most interesting things about the
25:12
hive mind is the level of inconsistency
25:14
within its own rules inconsistent moral
25:17
outrage seems to be par for the course
25:19
for example even the hive mind will
25:21
agree that the furry community is mostly
25:23
sexual and sexuality is something to be
25:25
celebrated
25:26
however the types of sexuality and
25:28
fetishes you are allowed to have seem to
25:31
change on a weekly basis
25:32
today bondage is in it’s a fun healthy
25:34
kink everyone should try to spice up
25:36
their love life but next week bondage is
25:39
disrespectful toward women and
25:40
perpetuates rape culture last week Lion
25:43
King porn was perfectly acceptable
25:45
everyone loves The Lion King but today
25:47
all drawings of quadrupedal animals is
25:49
the same thing as bestiality and will be
25:51
shunned here’s a fun experiment ask a
25:54
member of the hive mind if furries are
25:56
zoo files because they sexualize
25:57
anthropomorphic animals they will say no
26:00
of course not it’s only artwork next ask
26:03
that same person if liking drawings of
26:05
young characters makes them a pedophile
26:08
how could it if it’s only artwork right
26:10
now sit back and take note of the mental
26:12
gymnastics the hive minds rules are
26:15
often so hypocritical and nonsensical
26:17
that they are at times impossible to
26:19
decipher take for example this tweet
26:21
there’s a meme going around where you
26:23
your character in a certain sweater this
26:26
person is responding to another saying
26:28
that they cannot participate in this
26:29
meme because they are a trump supporter
26:31
and the meme was started by a trans
26:33
person
26:41
you may think this person is just being
26:43
over-the-top as a joke but upon further
26:45
inspection no they are being serious
26:48
now this is only one example but these
26:50
kinds of psychotically nonsensical
26:52
tweets are fairly common within fairy
26:54
twitter the hive mind seems to believe
26:56
that being the victim of something makes
26:58
you the absolute authority on it so much
27:01
so that anyone who is not a victim of
27:03
that thing is not allowed to have any
27:05
sort of opinion on the matter you may
27:07
also not question the validity of those
27:09
claiming to be victims this has led to a
27:12
culture within the hive mind of
27:14
Perpetual victimhood the more bad that
27:17
has happened in your life the more
27:18
powerful you become among its ranks
27:20
people where their self diagnosed mental
27:23
illnesses as badges of honor adorning
27:25
their profile bios I’ve seen people in
27:28
heated debates over which one of them is
27:30
more abused why would anyone ever try to
27:33
improve themselves when being as
27:34
disabled as possible grants you so much
27:37
authority and for all of the hive minds
27:40
efforts they very rarely succeed in
27:42
doing much of anything helpful all their
27:45
attempts to bully people out of the
27:46
fandom usually only end up causing more
27:48
people to oppose them more people who
27:51
are now Millett eyes de gainst them more
27:53
people voting for the political
27:54
candidates the hive mind opposes all of
27:57
the hive Minds gatekeeping into the
27:59
fairy community is almost entirely
28:01
useless even if behive mind does succeed
28:04
in getting someone banned from every
28:06
furry website and every furry convention
28:08
that person can easily just make another
28:11
character and re-enter the fandom they
28:14
do it all the time anyway the hive mind
28:16
represents groupthink at its worst why
28:20
anyone would want to be part of a
28:21
community completely inundated by this
28:23
is beyond me and what’s worse is now a
28:26
second hive mind whose stated goal is to
28:28
be the anti hive mind has popped up and
28:31
concept opposing the hive mind is not a
28:33
bad idea but the problem is that the
28:35
anti hive mind tends to use the exact
28:38
same tactics as those they claim to hate
28:40
just take a look at my Kiwi farms page
28:42
that’s a fun read it’s got people on
28:44
there who claim that I’m a trump
28:46
supporter and try to use it as an insult
28:48
at the same time it’s also got people on
28:49
there who claim I’m a social justice for
28:51
you and try to use that as an insult to
28:54
groups who claim to be complete
28:55
opposed and claim to hate the tactics of
28:57
the other side but actually act the
28:59
exact same way take the example of a
29:02
recent tweet I made where I apologized
29:04
to Dogpatch for talking shit about him
29:06
and stating do as a decent person if you
29:08
actually get to know her if you don’t
29:10
know those two are individuals often
29:11
associated with the hive mind many of
29:14
the responses to that tweet are some of
29:15
the anti hive mind individuals just
29:17
being vitriolic I responded by pointing
29:20
out that what they were doing seems a
29:22
lot like bullying which they often
29:23
accused the hive mind of and some of the
29:26
responses to the second tweet are even
29:27
worse
29:28
including one tweet for me is straight
29:30
up kill myself which unfortunately has
29:32
been deleted my point is in their mind
29:34
when the hive mind dog piles people like
29:37
this it’s abuse and harassment but when
29:39
the anti hive mind does the exact same
29:41
thing it’s criticizing someone’s actions
29:44
some of these tweets even seem to imply
29:47
that if you’ve been abused in any way
29:49
it’s okay to act like a complete cunt
29:51
hmm that’s starting to sound like some
29:54
other people we know isn’t it now I’m
29:57
sure I don’t need to go into more detail
29:58
about the groups of people I’m talking
30:00
about you’ve definitely encountered many
30:02
of them I know it’s not unique to the
30:04
furry fandom and I know vocal minority
30:06
yada yada but there lies the problem
30:08
when we talk about this sort of behavior
30:10
within other groups as a vocal minority
30:12
usually we’re talking about maybe 5% but
30:15
in the furry community it’s more like a
30:17
third this shit is prevalent with most
30:21
communities or groups like gamers you
30:23
can just kind of ignore the crazy ones
30:25
if you are a furry you cannot escape
30:28
them most of the major furry websites
30:30
and conventions are run by these people
30:32
the only way to get away from it is to
30:35
leave the fandom entirely so I suppose
30:37
you can raise your cans of illegally
30:39
purchase Pabst Blue Ribbon and
30:40
celebration because this time you’ve won
30:43
I’m leaving
30:49
listen I know I’m not perfect I used to
30:52
be 19 – and I’m sure I was a complete
30:54
spaz probably worse than some of the
30:56
people I’m complaining about
30:57
I know I’ve aided in that culture of
31:00
over-sexualization
31:01
I know that I can be a drama queen and
31:03
that I am a bit oversensitive but I want
31:06
to change those things and in order to
31:07
do that I have to leave the community
31:09
I’ve come to be known by some as the
31:12
voice of reason within the furry fandom
31:14
if you believe that then listen to my
31:16
final message to you furries as a furry
31:20
the furry community is toxic people
31:24
throw around that word a lot and don’t
31:25
seem to know what it means let me
31:27
explain it doesn’t just mean someone has
31:29
a bad attitude
31:30
toxic doesn’t just mean that you’re sick
31:33
toxic means that you have such a
31:35
volatile contagious illness that anyone
31:38
who comes into contact with you
31:39
contracts that same illness and goes on
31:42
to spread it to others the furry
31:44
community is toxic because the people
31:46
inside it are infected with and spread a
31:48
self-destructive poisonous mindset and
31:51
the most dangerous part is that for the
31:53
people infected the symptoms are almost
31:55
invisible they’re invisible because
31:58
inside the community those symptoms are
32:00
the norm now you can tell yourself with
32:03
a furry community is just about liking
32:05
anthro creatures but that too is a
32:08
self-deception and one of the signs that
32:10
you are being infected with this illness
32:11
you can talk about how anything I’ve
32:13
said only applies to a vocal minority
32:15
but the fact of the matter is that
32:17
almost every furry falls into at least
32:19
one of the groups that I’ve mentioned
32:21
above so do yourself a favor and
32:23
distance yourself from the community
32:25
before it’s too late ins consumed 15
32:28
years of your life I’ve tried to help
32:31
the community from the inside with these
32:33
last few years on YouTube that’s been
32:34
one of my goals but I finally realized
32:37
the problem it’s something I’ll call the
32:39
teachers fallacy that is thinking you
32:41
can teach a group of people who simply
32:43
do not want to learn as I leave the
32:47
community I want to give some
32:48
clarification as to what I even mean by
32:50
that despite everything I’ve said in
32:52
this video no I don’t hate you for being
32:55
a furry
32:55
I don’t hate furries in general it’s
32:58
just that I’m sick of interacting with
32:59
groups of them I’m sick of the same
33:01
arguments over and over
33:02
I’m sick of feeling stressed out about
33:04
what the hive mind thinks of my latest
33:06
tweet and I just don’t identify with the
33:09
young adults who make up most of the
33:10
community so it’s hard to find friends
33:12
but I don’t hate you
33:14
I’m not going to purge my life all
33:16
furries most of my friends are furries
33:19
and they will remain my friends all
33:20
that’s changing is that I’ll seek
33:21
friends elsewhere too which is something
33:23
I’ve never really done before I’m not
33:25
going to stop making YouTube videos it’s
33:27
just that now my videos will be less
33:29
Fairy centric I’m not saying the topic
33:31
is completely off-limits but videos
33:34
about it from now on will be as someone
33:35
outside the community and yes I’ll still
33:38
be using my dragon as my channel mascot
33:40
but we’re going to be making some
33:41
changes with how I make videos so the
33:43
overall presentation is less furry and
33:46
while I’ll always be interested in
33:48
anthropomorphic characters art and
33:50
animation I’m going to cease using furry
33:52
as an identity think of it like someone
33:55
who’s moving someone who lives in the
33:57
city but has gotten sick of the insane
33:59
drivers nearly being mugged on a daily
34:01
basis and the general atmosphere of city
34:03
life I’m still the same person just in a
34:06
different location a little bit further
34:08
away you’re still welcome to come visit
