I spotted a bit of a spat on twitter the other day, regarding a rule Nordic Fuzzcon had made for their upcoming convention. Taking your fursuit head off in public apparently ruins the magic and should be restricted to designated areas or an emergency. There's more waffle and subtlety to it than that but what it did do is get people talking. This dumb sketch is my stance. Honestly, not singling out Nordic Fuzzcon, I'm finding this trend of appeasing people creeping into everything, not just conventions but bloody everywhere. People who can't be happy unless someone else is being told off on their behalf. A convention is a gathering of many people for a lovely event, many people means many perspectives. If one cannot cope with differing points of view, differing social norms or behaviours, one shouldn't go to events. Being part of something means more than just one persons joy/enjoyment, it also means compromise. Can't have everything, can't have 'safe spaces' where you'll never hear an opinion that bothers you. That's if you want the freedom to be yourself, anyway.

If anyone ruins the magic, it's the adults who haven't grown up and expect the world to conform to their own wishes.

I like anthrocons policy on fursuits. fursuiter safety comes first if you feel the need to take off your head at anytime or anyplace they encourage you to do so.  Ive been going to cons  for a long time.I remember when fursuits were a rare thing

If they haven't 'grown up', are they really adults?

And unfortunately the Head of Security at Eurofurence has the stance of it "ruins the magic" and has made it clear he ignored blatant harassment that was directed at a suiter that removed their head in public.

Someone in that role ignoring a rule break because he agrees with the mob? That is dangerous.

(Proof on my clean Twitter if anyone wants it. This is the same head of security that blamed how I dress on numerous sexual assaults that happened when I was 13 or younger)

How long before talking in suit is banned unless you have a moving jaw?

Well said man. I think its not right to make others suffer cause they need water or air or just taking a break. I also agree that the 'minority' is starting to become a problem cause if they don't like it they want everyone to bend to their whims despite they have no right to tell a person they can't do this cause it ruins the magic. I have been to a few cons and I rather have a fursuiter talk to me and not just speak mime (unless I want a picture). I don't act my age but at least I know that under each and every suit is a person.  

Sorry I just feel that society has gone into reverse with hear the whinning of small groups that are not the soul of a con, or anything for that matter.

I heard them things can get really hot after a while, wouldn't surprise me if some furs have gotten heat stroke or something from not taking them off

I fully agree, as I'm sure you'd be aware by now. I just wanted to say I've just noticed you're displaying your character with long hair again and I really like it. You should grow it out for real again too, it's a good look.

Yeah it's all fun and magic until someone starts sweating bullets inside that big hunk of foam on their head.

"If anyone ruins the magic, it's the adults who haven't grown up and expect the world to conform to their own wishes."

that's nothing new. in fact, on /r/SargonofAkkad (subreddit) that tends to be one of the most commonly discussed topics by far. for such people in colleges they even have so-called "adulting" classes now so these overgrown infants can be taught how to be actual adults. tbh, that's one of the saddest and most pathetic things i've ever heard of.

and now the safe spaces come with coloring books for adults included. coloring books...i kid you not.

...I've never even been to that one, but now I want to make a fursuit that's headless, have fake blood and other makeup on my own head, and carry a Jack-O-Lantern. Y'know, implying that I'm the Headless Horsefox and I successfully took some human's head and attached it to myself. ;)

Maybe they just want a rest from reality through that magic
however grave the reason behind that might be

I can now only pity those and keep thoughts to myself
that's if it actually is and well, try to understand them
