A suspension of belief is sometimes needed when viewing furry art. Often times it dosen't happen and as a result you get rather funny observations from people who think they know things.
For instance, you see an anthropomorphic, bipedal lapine with an obviously humanoid penis, wearing a Speedo and with pads on his feet.
Many people are keen to point out that rabbits don't have pawpads.
Um, but in reality rabbits are not anthropomorphic. Rabbits do not wear clothing, no matter how skimpy it is. Rabbits are not true bipeds. rabbits do not have humanoid penises.
So how is it that people can suspend belief of all those things, and yet get worked up on pawpads (and in some cases, noses).
I know a rabbit can not have ANY of these things, so I find myself amused when someone will point out a single "inaccuracy" when the entire piece is in itself, an inaccuracy. I'm not saying the art is bad if it has incorrect anatomy. I am saying that it's silly to get worked up over that when the whole of the work is fantasy.
