Sometimes it amazes me to see so many members of this fandom behave like little children. I know all of us have our own little issues and stuff, but some of the behavior is more like grade school playground level. For crying out loud we have furs that hate other furs all because they happen to have a different point of view.
For example the artist LAKenji blocked me all because we have conflicts over the Broccoli character "made" by Sciggles. He believes that there is no problem with the character because its just a parody of Allan's fursona, while I believe that Sciggles had no right to "make" this parody because she didn't have Allan's permission. These differing point of views are kinda petty, yet LAKenji blocked me like I was trying to shove my opinion down his throat. This action is pretty grade school, and kinda goes along the lines of "I don't like you because you like pineapple gummy bears and I don't."
Opinions are just opinions people. We are all free to think how we want. Just because someone has a different opinion about things, it doesn't mean you should tease them or place them into your fuck you list. Do me and LAKenji have to see eye to eye? Not really. Do I hate him in any way? No. Do I think of him as an asshole? No. Immature maybe, but not an asshole.
The next time you come across a person who thinks or does things in a different way than you, try to get past the barriers and find things you have in common with one another; and not act like a little kid and alienate them. Because hey- the world does that to us enough already.
