Okay so i am driving to my morning class, back in college...yeah, and i have the radio on. On is this Bubby the Lovesponge guy...a radio personality who has a tendency to be a bit..crude. Now normally i enjoy the show..its not bad and sometimes can be funny. Plus its better than some of the crap on the airwaves at that time. This morning they were talking about sexual preferences after a bi woman got on the air to talk about her opinion of the Miley Cyrus incident...yeah the one at the VMA. They talked about the normal stuff...Bi, gay, that sort of thing. Then the one called Ned mentioned Furries.
Ho boy...warning this is going to probably be a shitstorm.
Ned, in all his so called wisdom, talked about furries being pervs that like to dress up as Barney the dinosaur and such and "pork around" (as he so colofully put it). This of course upset me knowing full well that we furries are nothing like that. And anyone that would spend hundreds for a costume just to mess it up while having sex is a total idiot. I was just about to call when...someone beat me to it. A furry named Randell living in Chalreston SC...my hometown...go figure. What happened next...shocked the fuck out of me.
This guy seemed to be on the level. He tried to explain that Bubba and Ned were wrong. Hell he even gave a general definition of what furries are...fans of anthropomorphic animals. Then things went wrong. Bubba started badgering the guy...asking questions like how can you be a furry and NOT have a costume? (Guy didnt have a costume..dont blame him, they are pricy as hell.) The guy calling tried to counter and even stated furries are a pretty creative bunch and like to create their own characters rather than dress up as one already established by a major tv network. This of course was responded with the statement bull. Then Bubba stated that Ned knows these things cause he went to a party were people did that. My reaction...ned is a dumbass thinking thats how furries truely are..and i am sure the guy calling was thinking the same thing. That guy Randell decided to, and maybe it was not smart but eh those guys were really annoying, dare Ned to go to a furry con and say what he says on the air right to their faces. Ned replied "And what? Am i gonna get beat up by a bunch of fags in bunny costumes?" and then played their little shut the fuck up and stop calling me clip before hanging up on the guy.
Now normally i am a nice guy...i can take a joke...but when these guys would not allow a person to state the facts and dismiss them cause one of them experienced things a certain way well that just pisses me off. Seriously if you are gonna insult people, or a fandom, expect people to call with info that contradicts yours and dont be a dick. I urge all furries to read and comment...if you wanna go a step further and create your own journals go for it. Do what you want with this info. As for me...i will no longer listen to Bubba and his Crew. They...have crossed a line they shouldn't have.
