    I'm replaying GTA IV right now, which came out in 2008. On their hilarious (and frighteningly on the nose) right wing talk radio station, one of the sweepers is about the scourge of furries.
    I gotta little bit of smoke and a whole lotta wine...

        I had never heard of the litter box thing up until a month or two ago.

          This is Darwinian. Once you remove women from financial dependence, they drive evolution. This is a good thing. Let it play out.
          Whether it's due to general laziness or untreated mental illnesses, these men are usually choosing some anti-social combination of guns, video/nerd games, sci-fi & fantasy media, booze/pot, and porn over self-improvement, productive/interesting hobbies, and growing up. They literally have nothing to offer that would interest most women. I'm currently witnessing it with my brother-in-law. He's a smart enough guy, could be using his GI bill to earn a degree and better his career & life. Unfortunately, he is somewhat autistic, lacks self-esteem, has poor hygiene, and he just wants to keep baking bagels for $15/hr and being a shut-in. My wife has tried to encourage him - set him up with insurance so he could get therapy & medication, my FIL paid for him to get his teeth fixed, and so on, but it's like dealing with an addict. You can't help someone who doesn't really want help.

              I do not understand this, literally. I will readily admit that from 16 to 22 probably the only thing that made me make my bed, do my laundry, and take a shower, was the need to be attractive enough for women to sleep with me. But I did have that need, so I did do those things. And I strongly suspect a majority of all straight men in history were similarly motivated.

              Sex drive didn't suddenly go away for young men. So what the hell is stopping these guys? Or is it literally this is the first generation of males where the porn is so freely available and so good that quite frankly why deal with the overhead of attracting women? But if that were the case, they would be happy -- it would be a free choice.

              I don't understand. I see young women every day and, although they dress like sh-t, (1) they've dressed like sh-t since the 1970s, and (2) they are still as attractive as they ever were. Probably moreso since they aren't hung up about sex anymore when you get outside Jesus****istan.

                Maybe I saw her years ago during my first furry encounter - when I had the unfortunate luck of staying at the Westin in Pittsburgh for work and finding out the national furry convention was there that week.

                • I think porn has something to do with it. There are so many men who not only don’t know how to please a woman- they don’t even care. They think women in real life are like the porn they watch.

                  also women don’t need men financially as much anymore- at least not like 40 years ago.

                  nevermind men not wanting women to have control of their bodies.

                  but hey now it will be womens fault we have so many incels

                  • Sex isn't the psychological drive there. It's companionship and physical contact with another human. Which we need individually. Sex is just one of the more intimate ways to satisfy that need.

                    I completely agree with DGF. Her post nailed it. Porn is part of the problem, however, because it satisfies our sexual drive without satisfying our need for connection (physical and non physical) it leaves us alone. Now everyone's mileage will vary here.


                    I also think the other part of the problem is we made sex into a trophy. Without the trophy you're left feeling inadequate, inferior.

                        Imagine getting into hotel elevator with a pack of furries.

                        a few months later I was in Boston for work, and the Marriott Copley sq was buzzing. Some huge anime convention was hosted there, along with lacrosse final four so I was in elevator with duke lacrosse players and people dressed as amine characters

                          • You can write an entire thesis paper on how porn has formed society's vision on sex and how different that vision can be from reality.

                            It's one of those things that personally has been super eye opening once it was pointed out to me. But it's also something that I feel a vast majority of people (ALL SIDES) don't really know any better, and honestly don't want to learn about it (due to social stigma).

                            • With all the discussion about porn and furries, the banner ads on this site could get a lot more interesting.
                              That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

                              • I don't know how much of it is porn rather that from my view there is a generation of kids that were given a phone or tablet shoved in their face since they were 8 and never learned how to socialize. Our kids could use a shared desktop computer that was in the living room, they had a shared iPad that we gave them when they were 9 and 10 respectively but it could not be used in their bedroom, and we didn't give either a phone until they were 15 and 16. Today they're as social as I was at that age and have both had a girlfriend or two since high school.

                                By way to be 20 again and in that 72% of guys having a shot at 82% of the women.
