    Of course there is peer pressure in the Furry Fandom. It's just another subgroup of Geeks/Nerds afterall (Which happen to be notorious for peer pressure when it comes to "Stop liking what I don't like") so I wouldn't take it as something noteworthy. Now it can be said that in the 8 or 9 years I've been around Furries they do have a tendency to cry just a little bit louder than other interests and blow things waaaay out of proportion. But then again I haven't been around other subgroups that aren't Video Games, which also happen to be happy to come down on each other for their game/platform/hardware/porn/waifu/etc. preferences.

    So in a way this thread existing is kind of what I just spoke about, if you think about it. What can also at least be said is that Furries has become big enough that it's starting to spread out more than it used to be when I first found it. These days I don't run across the less savory aspects either because there's other places to be or I've learned how to avoid it.

    It's kind of like learning how to be a good internet user. You start by learning to trim out Ads and scripts. With Furries you start by learning to trim fetishes and drama.

    I dunno about that. I don't like drawing porn frankly because I don't want to right now, not because I want to go against the grain. I just want to do other things like make comics or cartoons.

    Or did I just define myself as "that guy"?

    We should form a club! Then we can be called "those guys"

    I can't say much for this 'peer pressure' thing. Remember that for a lot of people the only interaction they have with furries is online. But I suppose the same rules apply, either go along with the pressure or be an adult and like your own things on your own terms.

    This, right here. These people only have as much power over you as you allow them to have.

    Yeah, that's nerds for you I guess. We're not all like that, but it's extremely common when it comes to hobbies/fandoms.

    to be honest ive never been directly involved with furry fandom but a lot of that has to do with me being intimidated by the people within it. the kind of cynicism and harshness ive encountered is very similar to the kind i encounter talking to people who frequent /b/. people ive met in person have always been significantly nicer, though. maybe the internet just brings out the worst in people?
