Why do we like fat furs? I varies. There is no one real reason. Some people like force feeding and some don't. Some people want to be the fat or chubby furs but no matter what they do, they can't put on the weight. To us, it is a preference. Fat Furs are sexy to us, like others prefer shapely and thin. So please do not say you need to make them thin to make them beautiful, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. If you do not like them then that is your opinion. We are not a majority of a fandom, we are just a small group who happen to like seeing fat anthropomorphic animals. We are not sick or psychotic or mentally impaired or anything. We all have out strange fetishes and stuff we don't make public in the real world. We mainly keep this to ourselves but if someone like someone who is chubby or very fat more power to them. If fat or chubby people wish to wear next to nothing and show themselves off great. It means they are comfortable with who they are, there is no shame in being overweight. All this focus on being super model slim is annoying. People work so hard to starve themselves silly just to loose a pound or two. Some people are born chubby or fat and some just happen to get that way. To quote a close friend of mine "Its like, unless your a size 5 or under, you aren't accepted. It sucks" We are who we are. I think that is enough of that. We love fat furs and people because we do.

Thanks so much for the confidence booster. I've got a girl in my school who has a bit of fat on her, and I keep trying to keep myself from staring at her and dodging chances to be discovered and thrown into the void (well, a deeper one than I'm already in, considering I have but 2 or 3 friends), and now, with this, I think I can walk in the daylight with my ideals.
Well said. My brother criticizes me for my love of fat furs, but who cares? He is a LOTR freakomaniac! I criticize him, but he says it has a cult following, and fat furs don't. He's got it wrong. In fact, he's got it in reverse.
Keep in mind this is very old so I changed lots of stuff..that and I'm not an english speaker so my english is far from perfect. Thanks for the corrections though...planning on remaking it...and yes, I reply to OOOLD comments. *hides*
i myself, am fat.. and i have recently found that despite that.. I am still beautiful.. i find it wonderfull that people be so confortible with thier own selves that they can draw overweight furs, and even find thw weight itself atractive...
I try everyday to draw my furs more like my actually body shape.. and i hope everyone else will do so as well
we are beautiful for who we are,
and girls with a little meat on them are far more atractive then damn super models.. because it shows they aren't superficall bitches.. (usally)
I don't admire overweight people simply because I think there's something to be admired in someone who works so hard to maintain themself (but not to a fault - too much muscle is gross!). I try, but I still have my little bit of squishy. *pokes her tummy*
I respect you guys! Just make sure that you're healthy and all that jazz.
(PS - one of the greatest characters ever would definately appreciate the club - Lilo! )

I'm kinda fat myself...not obese (sp?) just a little overweight. I also have a character who's overweight (Fat Caiman, where I got my screen-name from.) I wouldn't mind losing a few pounds, but other than that I'm happy just the way I am. I also hate it how they put so much attention on the skinny people and not the medium and overweight people. I mean, geez, some of them look anorexic! It's ridiculous! I have nothing against skinny people, mind you, but I just think they're...well, overrated. Lol.
YAY!!!!!! That is so eloquently put. I see too many FA's trying to explain why they like what they like, and it always ends badly. It's like trying to explain Furry to a mundane. Doesn't really work. I was wondering if you would grant me permission to link to this picture through a BBW message board I help moderate... It really helps explain the standpoint without feeling like it needs to be justified.
I've been an FA (Fat Admirer) my whole life. I think there are two types of people who do not understand this lifestyle. There are those who find it facinating and then there are the ones who have to crack off jokes to make themselves seem witty and funny. Though not drawn to fat people themselves, I think there are people who cannot help but be interested. Not because of the "Freak show" factor, but because it is a diffrent lifestyle that they wouldn't choose for themselves. They observe it and try to understand it. These people though, are rare. The other kind of people....
They let their own narcissitic point of view completely cloud their judgment. They see it like they see a spider. They see it as something disgusting and it needs to be squished out of existance by any means necessary. Never mind the fact that the spider (as well as us) has every right to exist just like anything else in the world. Because we are misunderstood, we do recieve a lot of whispers. It used to bother me, but it doesn't anymore. Also, I no longer have to justify it. If someone were to ask me why I prefer fat chicks I tell them it's just because I do.
Oh ya, I also do not believe in political correctness. That just serves to further divide us as human beings.
So, people who are haters to this Fat Apreciation culture are people who don't understand and don't really care to understand. It is their right to NOT want to. But the haters also have to realize that we have the right to NOT listen to them either. We have the right to NOT care about what they say just as much as they want to "tell us things".
As far as "Fat Furs" goes, all the same apply. "Furries" is a lifestyle that I like to observe. I have an appreciation for the people who do are into it. I do not look down upon them or call them names in anyway. They like what they like and they are willing to stand and be recognized, good for them! If that's what makes them happy then they have the right to be happy.
As long as there are differences of opinion, there will be assholes trying to tell you they are wrong. It's practically a law of physics.
For the record, I myself am a proud, and open almost to a fault, FA....one look at my art will tell you that. Also, I have a "NO SKINNY CHICKS" sticker proudly dispayed on my backline....not many musicians, 'specially in metal, would do that....at least not do that, and actually mean it. I also frequently wear a 'no skinny chicks' t-shirt.....mostr who see it probably think its a joke, but those who know me for more than a few moments realize its not.
Not only am I am FA....but I'm also a rather chunky dude myself at 6'2", 330lbs....I'm a living, breathing wall.....and thankfully, due to my size (some of it is muscle too...) people rarely make comments to my face. But I hear the snickers, and remarks behind my back all the time. It's my daily reminder that we live in a society cheifly populated by cowards, and pissants.
Ok....I 'm starting to ramble now, and before I obscure my point anylonger, I just leave you all with these nuggets of (drunken) wisdom:
- Fat is where it's at!
- Eat, eat....till you cant see your feet!
so....before I make an ass of myself (???).......
- Meat is for the man, bones are for the dog!
Thank you, I know some large friends andf it certinly isnt there choice to be large. I think pepole are great they way they are. If they are large than even better IMO, more of them to cuddle. I bet yo are great just the way you are. You seem nice and you have very good art.
True... it's just a hassle to have to put up with people who don't understand and make stereotypical assumptions. >_< And thanks for that... I'm trying to hang around people who don't mind the physical difference, and it looks like I found the right crowd.^^
my pleasure, I am happy you like it here. I try my best to be happy to evryone no matter what. Evryone diservs a chance to have a friend. Big or small, tall or short , and speakingof short I will keep this short. Please enjoy your stay.
