I find it really hard to identify as a Furry because people seem to assume I get turned on by Ferrets or something. Or I like dressing up as an animal in the bedroom. Or I like to get Mr. Pet to do so. Or all of the above. I just like to slip on my costume and go about my daily life. Or go for a walk in the park or climb trees if I’m feeling adventurous. All dressed up as Rusty the Red Panda.
And when people search for it there’s just Yiff everywhere. I’m not saying that there’s anything wrong with that, heck, people can do what they like with their sex lives. It’s just sometimes I don’t have the energy to explain to people that Yiff isn’t representative of the whole community and so sometimes I’m scared to use the term “Furry” to describe myself, you get a lot of stick for it.
It bugs me that it bothers me so much. I think it’s partly because sometimes, even I’m not even sure if I’m identifying correctly. But I think it’s about time I just accepted it. I am Zoe, I am Rusty, and I am a Furry.
I’m going to try to embrace Rusty more at University. Maybe that will help.
