Looking Behind the Mask of Furry Culture BY CAROLINIANWEB on MARCH 21, 2018

The Carolinian recently posted a piece on the fandom and it’s quite excellent and to quote the piece.

“When I was in middle school and me and my cousin were in the same classroom,” said Hepler, “we would draw comics to each other. Occasionally, she would draw these characters which had animal characteristics to them… I thought that was kind of cool, combining animals with humans. That kind of kept going, and then I got to google and one thing led to another, and I found out what furries were…It’s now just an extension of my personality.”
