Oh my god... Furry is a glorified hobby. It's not like coming out that you're gay, or into tentacles or anything. First and foremost, it is a hobby / interest. It's exactly the same as the anime community. Even if you are a fursuiter, you don't need your parents blessing to put on a cosplay outfit, so why would you need it when putting on a fursuit.

If you INSIST on making a big deal about 'coming out' as a furry, then you need to weigh the personal benefits you gain from telling people, whether a relationship between the two parties is strengthened or possibly worsened. If it is worsened, then I highly suggest you keep it to yourself (if your parents are CSI fans or lurkers on /bee/, this is the most profitable option). It's not like hiding the fact you killed a freakin cat. 'Hiding' the fact you are a furry is the equivelant of hiding the fact you love turtles.

I seriously don't know what's the big deal.

It's a hobby. TREAT IT LIKE ONE. The bigger deal you make of it the more stupid and serious it sounds. Call it an art convention if you want, or a themed anime convention.[/quote]
This this, forever this.
