Furry on News.com.au - Suffering From Elation
A Survivor's Tale
Furry on News.com.au
I drop by News.com.au (I know, I know, ABC News is better) mostly for entertainment value, and today I got it. They've got a section called 'Ask Bossy', which is their take on the Agony Aunt schtik. Some of the questions people send in are pathetic, some are funny, some are oddly relevant, and now and then you get a corker.

As I know a number of furries myself, both online and off, I found this offering sort of cute:


Haha, poor guy! His furry tendancies aren't going to cripple him nearly as much as that massive sense of guilt.

Ha ha, Ask Bossy is the only reason I visit news.com.au :)

How entertaining is it?? And yet I feel so dirty after wallowing around in the comments there. I can't stop... Ask Bossy is my secret shame. :(

Yeah, Seumas even said 'you should probably stop reading that crap' but nooo... people have such weird problems.... I don't read the comments much beyond the first ten, too many.

Tiz indeed cute!... Bossy seems to give a pretty fair-handed and yet funny descriptive answer :D

I hope the sex lives of all those who replied with comments along the lines of "WTF UR SICK, KEEP AWAY FROM MY CAT, LOL" dry up when they turn 48 and their spouses hate them for the rest of their lives.

Oh, wait, maybe it's already happened.

Self-righteous vanilla morons.

Oh man, there's jerks by the boatload on that website. You think those responses are bad? You should see what some of the vanilla jerks say to OTHER vanilla jerks! I have seen completely serious comments on that website to the effect of "Women should stay in the kitchen / do all the chores" and even, "Women are all scheming lying bitches".

I imagine being that shut-off from the world is a punishment in itself. It must be a little lonely, and a little boring, never to open yourself up or experience anything new.

I should add that I've seen some self-righteous ALTERNATIVE jerks too - for example, polyamorous people who think that monogamy is moronic. That sort of thing really shits me. I always thought part of living an alternative lifestyle was the idea that if you want your lifestyle to be accepted, you also accept the different lifestyle choices of others.

Speaking of mono-vs-poly, I'm coming to the opinion that neither lifestyle is necessarily an improvement over the other, but that (like being gay or straight), poly/mono tendancies are something we're basically born with.
