I don't want to dredge up any old wars in public viewable places and since the one thing I got to say on this big war got deleted(along with the entire post that was made about it) I'm gonna spew my shit here.
Headless or not? I'm sure those of us int he furry community that have been running circles around this topic are already rolling their eyes at this being brought up again. Which is fine. Please feel free to not read since you've probably heard these points before.
And for those of you out of the loop, here's the scoop(as far as I can tell): people went to MFF
. Apparently lots of people this year were running about holding their heads in their hands and not wearing them with the rest of their suit.
But for the love of jesus this has brought up a shit ton of controversy. Indeed it was an unsaid rule to never take your head off. That's why we have the cooling off rooms. However, this is a changing time with different people and different ways. We all grow up differently with different values. And as the world continues to get older and us with it, things will ALWAYS change. Sometimes for the worst, sometimes not. Either way we need to just accept these changes and move on our merry way.The Fursuit Database
has now reported over 400 fursuits in its ranks. Think about that; 400! That's a lot of fursuits people and a lot of different personalities and ideas under each and every one.
Now I understand that there are people out there that don't want to ruin the magic by taking off their heads. I'll admit it looks a little weird to me to see someone running around in a fullsuit and not wearing their head, but we're also supposed to be one of the
most tolerant and accepting sbucultures ever. So let's keep accepting, shall we?
Let bygones be bygones. Don't bash one or the other and don't segregate. The last thing we need right now is even more segregation. We already have the tendency to split ourselves by species and have a biased against primate furs(which is just really wrong by the way), so we need to set aside differences and just stop caring what the rest of us are doing.
My personal opinion on it? I don't know if I have one really. I don't know how I'm going to act in a fursuit really. I will not rip my head off in front of children just for fear of freaking them out, but I don't know about the rest. We'll see.
