The Hatred of Furries
Stereotypical view of furries[edit | edit source]
Since society at large holds men who do not conform to gender roles based on male utility in contempt, many furry haters will smear furries based on their lack of status. Furries will be attacked for being 'unemployed losers', socially awkward, ugly, or 'living in their mother's basement'. That is not the worst of it either. Furries get attacked for their "sexual degeneracy", many furry haters are homophobic, and will attack furries for being gay. Also, many Furry haters will even attack furs for being pedophiles and frame them as being dangerous to kids.
Why do fur haters hate furries?[edit | edit source]
A lot of right-wing men have anxiety about their low status and deselection at the hands of women. Instead of coming to terms with their hang ups, and letting go of their obsession with women, these men instead try to sooth their anxiety by attacking others. Furries do not stick up for themselves very vigorously and thus seen as an easy target for abuse.
Women hold furries in contempt because they are seen as low status. The Furry community is seen as creepy, and not mainstream. Due to the stereotypes associated with furries, most females will not want to have anything to do with a community of men who like to dress up as a hobby.
