In one sense of the word, I’ve always been a furry. I’ve always loved animals and making my own characters and stories, but the first time I heard the word ‘furry’ it was an insult. I wear cat ear headbands a lot, not the anime ones with the bells or anything, they’re just plain black, but I’ve done it ever since I was a kid. I don’t feel like myself without them, and I’ve just Green-Goblin-ed them to my personality. They help me feel confident. I was about eleven or twelve, just starting middle school, and a boy I’d never met came up to me and called me ugly and a furry. That stuck with me, and so of course I needed to know what a furry was. I googled it, did some research, and yeah. I’m a furry. The rest is history, I guess! :)

I used to be an Anti Furry, but I did some research, and realized I was in the wrong.
Also, I had a creative interest in animals, particularly ones from Disney Films like Zootopia, Robin Hood, The Fox and The Hound, etc etc.

With the help of The Secrets of NIMH and Starfox, plus the art looks adorable and my very first online friend I made years back was a furry, so I got curious about the fandom and here I am!

I became a furry out of genuine scientific and philosophical interest in the concept of sentient animals - that and the fact that the furry fandom is generally wholesome and accepting of different types, as well as the creative factor, too :>

I made my first fursuit out of cardboard when i was five, i had NO idea what a furry was then, i wore the suit everywhere until Halloween when the shitface in face beat me up and wrecked the fursuit. after that i drew and, just generally became a furry after that

Cloud/Zizi and _bowtie_bovine introduced me to it for the first time and I thought it was cool and _bowtie_bovine was very nice about it and willing to explain it more. And when I joined everyone was a lot nicer, which was more than could be said about many anti-furry streams, but imgflip in general used to be more accepting of furries. Almost everyone that kind of inspired me to join has either went inactive or quit imgflip entirely.

The OCs stream played a big part too, I used to ask what I should do to create OCs next. Occasionally someone would tell me to use furry bases and I didn’t know what they were at the time, so I sort of moved on from recoloring Pokemon (and occasionally fusing them) and redrawing other media used in a RP series in Fake_Switch_Games called switch wars (which tbh was my only real reason to be there at the time) to using free art bases which inevitably led me here.
