Ahem. Where's my soapbox to talk about furries?
Here's the thing. If you're two consenting adults behind closed doors, I truly do not care what you do. You have the right to do whatever perverted, fucked up stuff you want as long as you're not hurting anybody (or, because I feel like it applies here, any animals) and are not in public. When you go "You know what I'm going to do? I'm going to groom my neckbeard of cheetos crumbs and go around town with a fox tail stuffed down the back of my pants, go to the local toy store, and start humping the stuffed animals on the shelf!" you've crossed a line from "what you do in the privacy of your own home" to "congratulations, you deserve to be repeatedly tasered by the police for being a fucking creep."
Between the "let's go out in public in furry shit and act offended when people look at us like we're lunatics!" and the creepiness of it all when you realize that ultimately, these are people who want to be animals, so that they can then have sex with other animals, which may or may not be anthropomorphized like beloved childrens' cartoons, it's really hard to cut furries any slack.
Some folks say, "But Horus, you don't get what being a furry is about!" To which, I reply, no, I really do. I really, truly wish I didn't, but when you are in the gaming industry professionally, you ultimately learn a lot about your customers you didn't really want to know in the first place. I get that furries feel like they're actually the animals they pretend to be, trapped in a human body. And I've got some news for you-- if you feel that way, there is actually something wrong with you mentally. And that's cool if you can keep it behind closed doors and not force that shit on the public. But when it appears in public, furries are sending a message that they A) want attention, and/or B) want to fuck animals. The only society in the world, in the most technical sense, that finds bestiality socially acceptable are the Muslims, and in that regard, it's only acceptable to molest your own livestock provided you do not then use it to feed your family, and may only sell it to "unbelievers." It's in a hadith... I can't be bothered to flip through that pile of savage nonsense to find the number. But the point is, outside of the most homicidal, insane, barbaric culture on the face of the planet, it's not kosher.
And the worst part about all of it is the conventions. People in fursuits fucking each other in the bathrooms, destroying childhoods with each Mickey Mouse "ah-hah!" moan. I'm pretty desensitized to the world, but you know what still is scarring? Seeing a fat autistic neckbeard in bad makeup supposed to look like a fox felching another fat autistic neckbeard while holding other said fat autistic neckbeard's skunk tail over his greasy head in a public restroom at GenCon.
As for DeviantArt, the site only exists to share badly drawn furry porn created by 12-year-old socially defective weirdos and 19-year-old weeaboo fangirls who all want to fuck Inu Yasha or some other anime furry with one another.
I will now return my soapbox from where I found it.
