    The only good thing about Timon and Pumba is that sometimes they are seen as gay parents for Simba. Yay Diversity!:V(I do hate them though as they ruin the more epic feel of the picture. But it's also very hard for me to not see Jonathan Taylor Thomas when Little Simba talks soooo it's not perfect in any way).

    I adhere to the idea that Simba killed Scar's kid because he only wanted his offspring in his harem. (I wouldn't have actually cared if Kovu was Scar's son because who did they think Nala's dad was? No other lion dads were around except Mufasa...)

    Has everyone forgotten Hakuna Matata? For SHAME.

    I think the growth rate has finally hit a brick wall too. The explosion of 2004-2009 is long past, and the rate of people coming in has slowed to the point where the rate of people dropping out has started to catch up with it.

    I suspect that MLP and Homestuck are sweeping up a lot of the new kids that otherwise would have wound up in furry.

    You can acknowledge attributes you dislike about something, while still liking or identifying with it.

    Personally, I feel it's better to be able to laugh at yourself and the things that you enjoy, rather than just being averse to any and all clashing views.
    To not take them that seriously.

    Not only are you able to enjoy more things without having your mood soured, you're also not letting other people sour your mood with the negativity that will find a way to crop up, regardless of what you do. (Especially in something like furry, where it has a big negative reputation, sometimes for good reason.)

    It's just less stressful that way, and it opens you up to thinking more objectively, instead of just kneejerking at every opposing view because you've invested yourself way too hard in something.

    What you are talking about Vae is pure unadulterated blasphemy. How dare you question the sanctity of hugboxes?

    I wasn't really wondering why people in general were doing it, just a little surprised OP did it because from what I've seen on the forums he's a bit oversensitive.

    I highly doubt that's true...expanding or not it will continue to exist and people will continue to like it. After all what is it besides people who like cartoon animals, that never really stops.

    If you mean expanding to new media? I doubt it. The furry fandom itself has always had its domain over the internet. Cons/meetups being an exception. As for the community itself, I see no difference. But there are always more members because the fandom is slowly more accepted on mainstream media (spare for companies who profit off scaring the naive). Just because a fandom gets more members over time doesn't mean they are always vocal about it. Most perhaps just lurk for images.

    I've been in the fandom for about ten years now, and I've seen it grow slowly, but surely. It's still growing, but it's going slowly, and that's fine if you ask me. I see new people all the time, and I see some new artists just starting out here and there, and even a few fursuiters. They're not all that well known yet, and maybe they never will be, but they're there, and you know, that's also fine with me.

    Some years, it's a bit slower than the other, but I'd say the fandom is still expanding. We don't need to have a huge influx of amazing artists, new people, and fursuiters every week. As long as there are new people, artists, and fursuiters, there's bound to be some popular ones turning up sooner or later. It's just how the fandom is. We're slowly becoming more accepted in the mainstream and that's progress and a way of expanding too. It's not a whole lot, but again, we don't need to be rapidly expanding at all times. The fandom is still expanding, even if it's a bit slow.
