FURRY FANDOM ORIGIN POSTER by wolf117M FURRY FANDOM ORIGIN POSTER by wolf117M
Many don't know the history of their own fandom! (i conducted a small interview with furries and non furries alike) and nobody could tell me where the fandom ACTUALLY came from. i did a little research and figured out it started at a sci fi con with a writer's book that had to do with anthros. at first the fandom was just a few people meeting at sci fi cons, but it grew from there. many furries have strayed from their roots in sci fi, so i made this pic for ALL FURRIES: don't forget your roots!

All characters belong to their respective game/movie and were not drawn by me!

I totally agree with this. This is partly what got me into the idea of anthros in the first place.

huh, makes sense. some guy (or girl) writes a story about some science experiment going wrong and getting turned into an anthro then it grows from there.

I can honestly say that I didn't know this, but it makes a lot of sense when you think about it. Sci-Fi is my favorite genre of literature, which is followed very closely by, if not tied by anthropomorphic fiction. Not saying that science fiction has any bearing on me being a furry, but it's a good connection. After all Michael Crichton (R.I.P.) had a character in his novel Next that was genetically engineered Monkey-boy named Dave.

How I got mixed up I will never know.I admit I see some potential in furry based characters,but the public oppinion on the fandom and the fandom itself needs well a good kick in the ass to get back on track.

yeah. it's true. the furry fandom is not entirley sexual, contrary to popular belief. (but i will admit that a lot of it is)

I agree,sadly 98% of the worlds population thinks the opposite.
