This was found in my "Sexual Offenses and Offenders" texbook for my Sex Crimes class.
"Some individuals even have fetishes about stuffed animals; "furries" as they are called, dress like and surround themselves by stuffed animals, and they have conventions and Internet sites associated with their fetish. Those sexually aroused by the stuffed animals (a paraphilic interest item) are referred to as "plushies". Though this type of paraphilia is considered amusing by some and deviant by others, it, like all paraphilias, can be distressing to the individuals involved."
So...apparently every furry likes stuffed animals...does anyone ever really try to learn about furries?
True story: As we went over this in class, the professor asked "Who can tell me what a furry is?"
*Everyone turns around, few laughs, some murmurs like "wut"*
After class, the professor approached me and told me it took a lot of guts to admit that.
He may be right, but really there's nothing to be ashamed about, and I know there are a few furries at my college; one was in my statistics class a year or so ago and he ALWAYS wore his tail, and I actually ran into him at AC. Another left a note on my car at Furry Fiesta.
