The pelt isn't a very well visited place, so i doubt if anyone had seen it at all. Wink

I concur with Caledonian. I saw the original post. I didn't see anything offensive, or which would raise eyebrows. Brassgoggles is just not a furry stronghold...

Definitely isn't. There's me, crazy lee and captain percell. And none of us are that hardcore furries, as far as i know.
Besides, the furries i do know (some of my best friends are furries) are pretty hard to offend anyway.



I'm kinda curious what that original message said now.

I seem to remember back in the distant past a rather unfortunate thread involving some rather derogatory comments regarding "fox hunting" "tally ho" and shotguns. It was not one of the forums finer moments. As I recall the resulting brew ha ha spilt onto several plush forums where forces were gathered accounts were made and the fuzz started to really fly.

The thread was locked, I think the ban hammer might have been thrown around a bit and generally people learned that the subject was a bit of a Tigger trigger and as such was probably best avoided.

Peace has reined ever since.....

As an outsider (not a furry, just caught my eye as activity on the forum in general), a joke about fox hunting and somebody dressed up like a fox and steampunk does tickle my dark humor funny bone.

But I reckon, in light of that one anti-furry incident that hit the news and other racial stuff along the same line, I can see now, how it could be a sensitive topic.

Good to know.  Remember folks, not everybody knows something is offensive to somebody else, or even has a clue that it would be. Smiley

Ah. I remember being told about that incident...

Furries seem to attract a lot of negative attention anyway.

I'll kinda-sorta re-post the question then...

Let me say, I don't have anything against furries; I just have serious misgivings about whether or not Brantley could actually be considered "furry," because, well... there's not a single patch of fur on him, for one thing, save for his cranial, facial and body hair in human form (the switching back and forth is somewhat of an issue as well).

Plus, my post, and the original backstory for the character in question, had some rather unsavory elements (for one, the experimental involuntary surgical origin, which could be construed as"torture" in a certain (unintended) light).

I've often thought that Brantley is a kind of "AntiMary Sue,"
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
in the same vein as an "antihero,"

Be that as it may, many in the past have seen him as being "the same as" a Mary Sue, so there's that bit of baggage.

The question remains, though: Is it possible that he is a "furry" character, even though he was originally human?

You mean something like devolving? Humans who revert to earlier animals? I haven't seen a "mammals only" rule among the very few furries I have seen online. I have a feeling that the definition of furry is equally fuzzy and a bit of a hairy question to tackle (punk intended  Grin).

I'd say so. I've actually seen this a lot! (Mostly in fetish art, i must admit. I keep running in that damn transformation fetish)
With how broad the furry fandom can be, i don't see why this character shouldn't be furry. However by lack of fur you might want to refer to them as a scalie. Some non-furred furries prefer that term.

The main question is: do you want people to regard this character as a "furry" character. If no, you shouldn't fuss about it too much, if yes, well, the main thing is you claim it as a furry character.

A nice lad I know by the name of Dr Gravitas has a fursona that's described as a "sapient multiverse" for a species.
Make of that what you will.

This isn't any less a furry than things with fur are. Wink

Arguably some reptilians could also be considered to be "furry" or rather feathery...
