I don’t remember how the topic of furries came up, but a little while ago I was having drinks with my boyfriend and his friends in Long Island City and it did. Being a girl, a very good girl, a girl whose parents were too poor to afford a computer ‘til she started college, I had no idea what furries were. In what seemed like the most awkward thing ever, these three boys stirred about like they were trying to suppress a fart and gave me a sheepish fetish lecture. I was too lazy to Google it then, but lucky for us, I found the above video today.
“Room 366” is a frisky video filled with dancing furries, created by furry enthusiast EZwolf and his pals. The video went viral a few days ago, a fact that others in the furry community were pretty damn bothered about as it made them vulnerable to trolls.
EZwolf responded to some of the grievances in a post on his blog, writing things like:
“This video shows nothing new. After all; It’s just fursuiters dancing, posing and cuddling. Attend any furcon and you see just this. Attend any regular dance party and you see people doing just this, only more poorly dressed.”
So yeah, I learned what a furry was today. Thanks, Internet.
