Furries are misunderstood creatures, says a Furry leader whose animal alter ego is a samurai cockroach.
Nearly 3,000 Furries — loosely defined as people who embrace the idea that animals can assume human characteristics — are converging in Pittsburgh this weekend for the 11th annual Anthrocon Convention through Sunday.
Aside from the fact that 3,000 Furries is 3,000 too many, how the hell do you decide that you associate with not just a COCKROACH, but a SAMURAI cockroach?!
And they are not “misunderstood.”
As attendees arrived Thursday, the Tribune-Review was allowed to interview Furries only in the presence of a security guard because many Furries “are terrified of reporters,” Conway said.
I understand completely. They are freaks.
