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!
