Furry fandom dating
It’s easy to hold them up as an example for all women, and to suggest that all women should consider unsolicited male attention ‘in the right spirit’, or as an ‘ego boost’. It serves to reinforce the idea that women should be able to deal with unwanted advances themselves…
and so the shy, the young, and the I’ve-had-enough-of-this-crap crowd stay away.
So the first rule for meeting furry women is to consider a public furry gathering to be a Safe Space.
I accept that some readers might challenge my characterization of men’s rights, and I’m happy to participate in a wider discussion: perhaps in a co-authored point-counterpoint article for future publication here on [a][s].Data collected online (ref Furrypoll) and data collected at large conventions (ref IARP) show this trend: online we’re (around) 80% male; at conventions we’re (around) 90% male.We furries have the same problem as gamers, cosplayers, and sports fans: if you’re female and wish to attend an event, you have to prepare yourself for the possibility of receiving unwelcome attention.You can read how we reached that conclusion, along with some discussion in a previous article (which has my favourite title to date): It’s Raining Men.It shows how furry’s gender imbalance and sexual orientation demographics conspire to make it difficult for heterosexual guys to find a relationship with a fellow furry.
I suggesting, by the way, that you treat men differently from women.
