I want to state I have posted the following statement out of context for a reason.
If you were warped, you tried to hide it, and good for you if you did. If you were going to polish your rod to autopsy photos or bugger a Shetland pony, you did it in the privacy of your own sick, sad home. No one else, especially not me, had to know, and that was great. The best part was, if you decided to crawl out on the roof and inform the neighborhood via midnight megaphone that being urinated on got you hot, you would be told, in no uncertain terms, how very diseased you were. Most people I know don’t have too much trouble distinguishing between a “lifestyle choice” and a “warning sign.” Yep, in many parts of the world, the idea of making love to Andy Panda is still regarded as somewhat misguided. Most parts, that is, except “Furry Fandom.”
When do you think this was posted online? Some would say quite recently given the current state of the furry fandom. But what if I told you that statement is over 10 years old. Doubt me check my source for this on Wikifur It was originally said by Squee Rat one of the founders of The Burned Furs. Also check out this link
I post this for only a historical reference and to show you as much as things have changed in the fandom. Somethings really hadn’t, and really did you expect them too? Given what has happened at too many cons to name where bad behavior has caused some to be banned. I just don’t mean the hate groups, I mean idiots who toss dirty diapers everywhere, walk around a hotel so drunk and naked that maybe they should be brought to a hospital for alcohol poisoning or something else equally stupid.
Really everyone what happened at Rainfurrest and other cons should be a wake-up call to everyone to behave better. Remember these cons do not own the space for the convention they rent it. Which means a code of conduct we all must follow…beside there are kids around. Do you really want a video of you posted online of you doing something very stupid that could get you permabanned from your favorite con? Well, do you?
Before someone thinks I would post such a video, think about this. Every cell phone has a camera and is capable of making videos. Now think about that…if that finally sunk in think about this. A simple Gmail account also gives you access to YouTube.
Really do I need to say anymore…just watch yourself.
