Those bastard Jones’es
So these religious protester guys are always at conventions, whether it’s anime, comics, furry, etc. Some of them are angry, and get into arguments with congoers, but I wanted to show them that the convention attendees are good people just trying to enjoy their weekend.
I decided to make it a personal mission to get each and every one of them to share a friendly hug, and needless to say, it went better than expected. My friend axelthemoogle took these photos, and it really interested me to see their expressions turn to a genuine smile.
I think this simply shows the power a little act of silly kindness. ^w^/

If anybody’s world is full of evil people, they need to find new people.
i cant fuckin believe how all the “outing bad people in the furry fandom” blogs are all run by awful people themselves lmfao
i just spent 5 minutes skimming through a couple of those type accounts, one was like “rape apologism is totally ok!!! its ok to romanticize rape to feed your fetish!!!” and another was like “IF YOUR PRONOUNS ARE UNCONVENTIONAL THEN THEY’RE FAKE AND WRONG” and i just
everyone stop being awful right now
So… one of the most valuable lessons I’ve learned in two decades of being in the fandom: Avoid anti-Furry sites.
Seriously. It doesn’t matter if it’s the ones outside the fandom run by the Recreational Harassment crowd, or the ones inside the fandom trying to “help” by pointing this stuff out—no good ever comes of it. Ever. They’re Ruiners. They think the fandom is a shitpile because all they do is surround themselves with shit.
And if you gaze into the abyss long enough, eventually the abyss gazes back into you.
It’s easy to think the fandom is full of terrible people everywhere all the time if you believe what you read these sites. Speaking from experience (again, 20 years and counting), the terrible people are few and far between. I surround myself with the awesome, creative, amazing people that are everywhere in this fandom. You can too.
If you focus on the bad stuff, you’ll end up like That Guy Who Used To Be A Big Name who so publicly and embarrassingly rage-quit back in 2001.
Don’t be That Guy.
So this showed up in my PO Box recently (the giant collage, not the cat). Approximately 3’ x 3’. Even bigger than the last one he sent, which I added to and returned (because I assumed that’s what I was supposed to do). There aren’t any instructions on what to do with it, so I guessed.
I’m a little worried if I respond he’ll send something even bigger next time.
