This has been the most productive year for me in the furry community ever, I was really under the radar until recently and mainly it's just because people were telling me to stop holding in my thoughts and speak on them...both irl and online.
I've been around for close to 8 or 9 years here and suffice to say my reputation as a troll/asshole/douchebag/egomaniac is probably well deserved. But I see why so many people don't care about the opinions of furries. In all reality the ones who are the jerks, the outcasts, the...ugh "popufurs" and the "attention whores" that people actually kiss ass to are the ones who are who they are through and through. I always felt bad for being pessimistic, narcissistic, and overall cynical but everytime I ask my friends "Should I be more nice or something?" everyone kept telling me no...and being mad I even considered it. It's foolish of me to want to make everyone feel pleased and happy cause not everyone deserves the same respect right off the bat. We are humans first and foremost, and we live to earn what we keep....money, food, clothing, and even the respect and admiration of others.
That is what I was raised on, and that is the foundation of who I am, I have gone by tons of names here...TheO.A, Purplekitty, Isanji, Indigo, IndigoFactory, The Factory, Jamey, and even Omar...
And..people have called me tons of things friend, enemy, moron, petty...whatever you know? All I can say is "So?" I mean slapping a label on me isn't going to make me transform into some super powerful monster that you can slay with childish words and labels. I thought I was a furry but after sitting here watching the things that go on in this community i'm not a furry, I don't care what your definition of one is...what matters to me is MY idea of a furry, I don't like fursuits, I don't like pretending to be an animal, I don't think I was born a tiger, I don't think drawing furry art MAKES me a furry either. I am IndigoFactory, the artist...I draw what I desire, what I like, what I admire, what I see, what I love, and art is the very reason why you hate me, and why you love me. I like humans, I like men who can bench as much as me and like to fight instead of pouting when I toss them an insult. I hate atheists, agnostics, Christians, jews, etc ONLY because the children you breed take on your bad habits and never think for themselves.
I have no issues with god, but my god and my religion are completely separate, my relationship with god is solely my own and how we speak is between him/her and I. That's all you need to know.
I don't take people who use emoticons seriously because it is quite possible to convey emotions without overuse of a superficial expression....I prove everyone who thinks otherwise wrong simply by existing right now.
I'm gonna do as I please, just how you can do and say as you please and not feel a bit bad about it...the only difference is I don't live my life worried about where I stand in society and in your eyes. I am fucking awesome, and not once will you hear me say anyone is beneath me, the only person who can protect me, feed me, cloth me, and take care of me is me.
Go ones own way is what I want all of you to do, take off the mask, be you and if everyone you know rejects you for being open and honest my application for being buddies is one rule "Don't Bullshit Me."
---------- On FA I thanked a lot of people there for IB I haven't gotten to know many of you aside from the people I already know.
