Furry = a general dissatisfaction with reality?

by
Joeyboy brought up a really interesting topic in his journal "what's up with cunt boys?"

It got me thinking. 'Yeah...tom boys aren't cunt boys, the gender identity is different and cunt boys may not have all the parts of a 100% female body.'

Then I thought, 'Ok, if someone isn't satisfied with a female personality and prefers female genitals, than there's some dissatisfaction there with females (psychologically)  and males (physically)'.

Hmmmm!!! Now we're getting somewhere! With herms (penis and vagina), it could be that the female body is lacking somehow without having male genitals as well.   And dick girls (no vagina only dick) could be a disgust towads the vagina / an intense attraction to the penis.

Soo...here's a sexual satisfaction 'chart'

what:        dissatisfied with:              satisfied with:
tom boy    female personality               female genitals + male personality characteristics
cunt boy   male genitals                       female genitals + male personality
herm.       lacking of male genitals        male and female genitals + androgynous personality
dick girl    disgust of female genitals    female personality + male genitals

This is just off the top of my head really. I started to go into the whole gay/straight stuff....but that's an utter mess lol....i don't want to go there really. Well that and the chart is about what you're attracted to, not your "sexuality"...which is a huge can of worms by itself.

So, I think furry is mainly about being dissatisfied with what's out there in reality. AKA: it's boring or disgusting as hell. As a furry myself it's sooooo much easier for me to describe what I like(attraction) rather than what i am(sexual identity). One's about trying things / exploring / and is 'open' to change, the other about categorizing / labeling / judging / is relatively 'closed' because it's a concept about a person.

I remember the feeling when I finally found there were furries online way back when. It was just like... "ahhhhh.....thank god....I thought the whole world whole be dull like highschool". There was just so much stuff! And it was all so colorful and fun and had all these different physical characteristics. Like a giant playground with a sign outside that reads "Just Explore".    

So a concept about a person (identity) is 'supposed' to predict behavior. "He is that, so he will do this".  A sexual identity is supposed to predict what the person will do or has done or is likely to do (ie. past and future).  Fortunately this doesn't work well at all  with people who don't fit into those narrow stereotypes (ie. furries). To even further confuse things, a lot of furry is heavily based on imagination. Being so unconstrained leaves you free to roam around and try out any combination of physical and psychological characteristics without the consequences of real life such as diseases, pregnancy, death, etc.

Having said all that....I can't help but find those 'common' 'normal' people quite strange in their tastes. I try to imagine myself liking those things, only being into those things....and it's seriously scarey, you know?  I love exploring stuff, I love crazy things, life is just too short to mentally live in a box!

Herm = dissattisfied with (exisiting Gender), yes, more females tend to want to be herms, but there are male herms too.

Then there is the whole human genitals vs animal genitals argument.  To some,it's bestiality if you desire a furry with an animal cock, but absolutely normal if it's a human cock, while others think it is absolute abomination to put human genitalia on animals...  Add that to the above and the number furry genders grows again!  :)

I love all body parts :3

Thus herms are of course one of my favs, but all other combinations are great as well XD

Furry is a nice sandbox to play around with fantasies in all kinds of fascinating ways.  You can be a raccoon with a five-story penis, a giant green kangaroo who stomps buildings (in a sexy sort of way), or a boy with a vagina. And that's totally cool. With an unlimited sandbox to play in, why not?

I find it really fascinating to see where people's mental tolerances start and stop. I know a fella who's just fine with all sorts of wacky kinks and fetishes, but who is totally squicked out by seeing animal genitals on furries. Personally, I think variety is awesome.

So if someone wants to play a boy with a vagina, that's fine. But I wonder if they should push themselves a little tiny bit farther and actually play.... a girl :)

See - it's actually quite an interesting topic and really just points to escapism in general.

That's what most art is - it's just a type of escapism. But it's not like escapism is bad or anything, I know it has this bad connotation and stuff, but honestly it seems like that's all we're really trying to do now a days xD! I mean, Games/Music/Books/Movies/Art in general are stories that we can get ourselves wrapped up in and forget about our worries in life. Porn is exactly the same as well. And just to be clear, escapism is absolutely natural, and even the addiction to it (hardcore drugs etc.) isn't necessarily "wrong" - just in that there is no rules about how to "live".

What's MORE interesting - is that America's biggest influencing market to other countries - is the entertainment industry. Films and stuff - people eat that shit up. We're spending more and more time and money on "getting out of our world." It's interesting to think ~ an artist has the power to "live" in all these different places, they bring life to all of these sort of things... Once you get a taste of that power, it's literally sickening to think of doing ANYTHING ELSE with your life. Art is some of the purest forms of idealism. We draw and create what we want to exist. It sucks that most things actually can't exist, and sometimes it hurts a lot - but in the end, it's just beautiful and inspiring what we can do.

Back on the porn topic - I know the internet has made porn ridiculous in the past 20 years. And more so - it has permanently altered many's sex lives. Porn's interesting, it's not like a drug where you want more of the same - it's like art, you want more of different. People will start to lose attraction to the same partner (or picture/character) when dealing with them for a while - but people turn into a sex-fountain if they're presented with a numerous of desiring mates. This sort of theory was experimented via mice, and this is exactly the case. BUT! Since the internet, we can actually see this process. We can freely browse around and have fictional fantasies with THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS of mates, I've got a good 9k images on my hard drive alone. Do I ever look back at them? Sometimes, but I typically just go online to find more new stuff! The thought of settling down with ONE mate seems kinda... eh, boring to me. Not that that's a bad thing, I'm a huge work-aholic, so I don't have the time/no interest anyways... But that's aside from the point. I'm saying, people get bored of things. Normal porn gets old. Normal women get old. Normal dudes get old.

I don't really believe you're born and instantly are a furry - it's something that you gather feelings for over time, and fortunately --thanks to disney-- we've actually seen how real animal characters could be - and it's quite easy to fall in love with them. So does that mean we'll be bored of furry eventually? Well, yes - and we already are. The different fetishes and kinks are furthering the interest of porn in general. Furry is a genre, and all the fetishes are sub categories. and that works with hentai/real pornography. So in the end, we're left with a broad range of ways to get off...

Uhhh, I kinda forgot where I was going with this xD! I dunno, just food for thought. I always find the human mind fascinating. It's interesting to see what we like/don't like, and it's really interesting seeing how we try to process it all. But I agree with you - Go fuckin' crazy with whatever. Live life to the fullest, and if that means be into the "weirdest of porn" - THEN WEIRD IT UP :3!

Well, I am a herm and I don't really have an androgynous personality.
Then again, I can't really tell how gender identity works for dragons XD

FANTASY = a general dissatisfaction with reality.
What?
Whippy

Hah! Yes.  I would go so far as to say "Imagination = dissatisfaction with reality".
MrSOCKS

And you would be entirely correct in saying that.
Partially.
Whippy

So I would be partially entirely correct then? :P
Hehe! Well, I used to imagine things all the time when I was a kid. Sometimes life sucking was a motivation for that. But other times it was just to explore ideas and I wasn't even thinking about "life" so much. So yep yep.
MrSOCKS

No. You know what?
Never mind.
Ultimately, imagination is entirely about dissatisfaction. Every whim, every dream or thought of improvement, flourish, creation or re-creation, invention or re-invention, ultimately comes from a dissatisfaction with the way things currently are. Whether that dissatisfaction is entirely benign or outright revolutionary.
I retract my earlier, pretentious post.

Well, I have to say you are sorta onto something though its way more complex.

Mind and Body play a role as well as the disatisfaction with ones current gender, the oposite gender, or both.

There are many sterotypes when it comes to the gender and the roles they play in socity. Take for example the '50's veiw that the men work and the females stay at home to be a house wife, that alone is a gender sterotype. Many wonder what would it be like to be the other gender, would life be easier? Would it be harder?

I know many people who even take out dissatisfaction towards the people they hate with derogratory slures. Why not draw your boss as a huge dick?

But what if not everything was to be towards hate?

Lets take a male for example, if he has a more feminine personality but still likes females, would you say he would like a more controling female as a mate? IE a tomboy? Well what if the female still was into frilly dresses and pop music but was totally bossy?

As you can see, it quickly becomes a tangled mess and in truth noone really knows what they like or what they hate. Some times people like things for this and that and there isn't always a reason for it. Perhaps its more of a facination, and envy, or a hatred, or disatisfaction.

Perhaps its just everything.

As myself, nothing really offends me in art. Not to say that somethings I perfer not to see. But when it comes to diffrent genders, bodies soforth. It never surprises me how creative you can be in art and I enjoy that creativity. And when certain roles are switched its really interesting to still see passion in the art.

Sorta makes me wonder, is all the liking for tom girls, cunt boys, herms, dick girls really not a liking of or dissatisfaction towards gender but gender norms and socity? I think that would be an interesting point to explore.

i'd say it's a combination of enrichment of reality, and sometimes boredom

You do know that there are people called transgendered men, right?

They exist.

In real life.

A lot of them.

Most of them do not have penises. I dated a guy who did not have a penis. I'd appreciate if you didn't psychoanalyze me based solely on my ex-boyfriend's crotch.

Hey, I knew nothing about you or your BF. I was just thinking about attractions to fantasy characters and putting them into catagories. I just made up quick catagories based on what I usually see in furry art. It's not meant to be a stab at you or anything. Just messing around with a simple chart based on attraction / nonattraction.
