Rabbit Delemma

by
I have observed that Rabbit furs are constantly at odds with themselves. Most every rabbit-hearted fur I've met desire (an) intensly spiritual and meaningful relationship(s), which often ends up at odds with the intense desire for 24/7 sex.

I see a lot of issues in rabbits crop up for this. That constant fear of being "betrayed" does not help.

Of course, I am generalizing, developing a stereotype, not everyone will fit this mold. Many do. You rabbits who fit this, I hope you will find a rare person who may serve both these needs.

I'm not a rabbit, but I know I want a spiritual meaningful relationship with someone. Don't care about the sex though

To say you don't care about it, implies you don't care for it. Which isn't true.

I think, sexually speaking, In your ideal partner, You'd like to know someone comfortable with their body, Who regards (behind closed doors with you) sexual touch in the same way the average person may regard a hug, with Orgasm not at all being any sort of needful goal.

You keep your spirituality close to your chest. I hope you're not ashamed of your spirituality. I understand it is a difficult one to have in this community.

Pretty good assessment of me, save for one thing. I don't talk the way most people seem to talk. I say exactly what I mean, without implications. I actually wasn't implying I don't care for sex.

Interesting.  Can I pick your brain on stereotypes for kangaroos and rats?

You know, I have never met a Roo-hearted individual who does not move awkwardly, like they are always off balance.. Beyond that, I can't pin anything down for roofolk, for there are far more roo fans then there are roos. Pretty low libido too. Or maybe it's a passive Libido? It's hard to tell if them roofolk welcome or tolerate sexual advances, But I rarely see them make advances themselves.

For me, what separates the Rat from the Mouse is internal cooperation. There are so many rats and mice, it's very hard to develop any real stereotype, But mice tend to suppress or control themselves, and place chains on their inner natures. Rats on the other hand are in full cooperation with said inner natures. Not saying rats are self indulgent, they don't give themselves over to their inner natures, no. They are friends with that monster, they walk with the monster, hand in hand. It is no monster to them, but a close cohort.

I shouldn't need to say a thing on the libido of rodents.

And that is why the indiscernible animal hybrid is the master race.

You are Toon Hearted. Such a thing does exist~

You prefer to be disconnected from reality, but are not incapable of staying grounded and serious. For most people, such escapism is very unhealthy and keeps them from facing very real issues and challenges.

For the toon-hearted, A healthy fantasy world actually helps to anchor and ground them. Keep them from going nuts in this challenging reality we all face.

I'd never really seen myself that way. It's rather a new perspective! It does worry me when people do completely lose sight of reality, though...

Sorry if I've come off as aggressive, I'm like... falling asleep on my keyboard here. If it wasn't so disgustingly dirty, I'd be typing with my tongue!

I too would be interested to hear what you think of kangaroos and rats! I have my impressions of those two, of course, but I value your insights more as they would be less biased.

To put my view of roos and rats in the crudest unkindest way possible, I would say that kangaroos are lazy and rats are greedy. Obviously, I love both those animals and (most) of the furries who embody them, so there is so much more to it than that. I see kangaroos (the species) as very laid back, even relaxed. It is something I try to tap into when I spend time with them, because rats are fuzzy balls of nervous energy. In furries this can translate into a lack of drive, sometimes to the point of indolence. But it can also make them creative, gifted (albeit not sufficiently productive), wonderful furries.

The idea that rats have made peace with their inner monster is a very appealing one to me. Maybe I am still trying to come to terms with mine? I suspect you would beg to differ, and I do hold your opinion of me in hight esteem, because I know I tend to shy away from introspection. When I say rats are greedy, I mean they are not in the least bit self-conscious about taking advantage of the good times. They know it won't last so they have to enjoy the now. I think that ties in with your idea of making peace with the inner monster. But tied in with the notion of celebrating the now, rats are plagued by constant wanting. Our lives are defined by want. It makes many rats driven and successful, but it comes at a price. Some rats (myself included) do not adapt so well to this constant craving.

Mice break rats' hearts. At least they break mine. It is my fault for being too drawn to them. But why am I so drawn?

In the ancient language, the word for rabbit is also the word for love.  Yes, this stereotype is very true for me, and it drives me mad sometimes.  The closest person I have to a mate is mostly up for the sex, but doesn't share my frequency about spirituality.  The only way I have to combat this is to lower my expectations on both form anyone, but this has, and is still, taking its toll on my outlook of society because to a bunny, love cannot be divided into different ways of showing it; they are all interconnected.

Of course you know this because what is a moogle, but a winged bunny with a pompom on its head?  ;p

It's less that, and more.. Well. As Tanuki, I can't just take a shape. I can't be an Elephant, if I do not feel like an Elephant. And I cannot feel like an Elephant, if I cannot understand an Elephant.

I can.. Begin to take a shape, with an idea of feeling like something, and holding the shape over time helps me understand the nature of that shape more deeply.

In taking a rabbit shape, I've found that the more in tune with the nature, the heart, of being a rabbit, the more conflicted I would feel in my desires. The more.. compromises I needed to make with myself in order to not only interact with others, but to /stand/ others. And even that itself was intensely opposing a repulsion to being alone with myself, and a need for social interaction.

I think that's why I wrote this. A sort of general shout to rabbits. How can you stand being a rabbit?
Because I found myself quick to anger. Touchy. Intolerant of certain traits.

I have to chuckle in sympathy because you have mirrored my feeling and perhaps briefly, some of my most private thoughts.  Rabbits' first form of communication is empathy and although not yet scientifically proven, telepathy.  Since these bodies aren't very good at either or when they are, we see things in society that disgust us, it is very very difficult for rabbits to find peace in this world.

Huh, I haven't noticed this... All furries are normally the same to me, being all about the sex and nothing more. I haven't really met much of them because of this, so I don't know who to talk about that wants a meaningful relationship.

Wasn't always as such, But I can't deny that it has become as such on the surface for the most part.

I'm old :(
