News Site Censorship?

Is time  to dump furry news sites being  harmful to the fandom.

This is my response to  an article posted on Flayrah

Dog Patch Press by Patch O Fur has banned from commenting for the one time I dare to question his vision for the fandom. My response is no sweat off my back I got my own furry blog. I do not need to cast pearls among the swine.

What furry news is doing is not censorship. Only government can censor and is exclusively prohibited by the 1st amendment of the US Constitution.   Private sites property like Flayrah, Furry News, and Dog Patch press do not come under the 1st amendment and are free to set commenting policy and remove comments on their site even though it may or may not hurt their reputation. In this case, I cannot blame them. What RooView is doing is borderline harassment or just being a big pain I am guilty of this myself; due to lack of civility I disabled all comments on my Word Press blog, you can create your own blog.

There is a bigger problem with theses “news” sites; these sites were good for review furry media and events but their crusades to reform the fandom in their image have pushed the fandom off the rails. Fury fandom is about the love of art, literature, costuming, and role-playing involving anthropomorphic animals.   Furry not about some persons immature, self-centered, trigged, safe space, feelings because somebody is wears, armband, and that has nothing to do with Nazis. If one does not 2 the ranting Griffin, performances, for example, do as I do by not attending. When I joined the fandom in 2006, I was aware there is a lot I object to, from pornography, fetishism and cub furs. I realize I do not have to go to their events or buy their media and still be a fury.   I do not need to go on a half-cocked crusade of personal attacks. Now we have individuals with their own agenda tearing the fandom apart.

It time the fury fandom get back to cartoon animals than politics of persona destruction. It perhaps time to evaluate do these new sites, and ask are these news sites are a benefit or a determent to the fandom. I feel much of the drama is 50% person and 50% news bloggers continuing the fan the flames. It is time to ignore, these amateur efforts like Flayrah, Dog Patch Press, World in RooView, Furry Times, and a host of YouTube blogs as being more destructive to the fandom. If somebody objects to some expression, that person needs to deal with it or time to leave the fandom and do so quietly.

Political Correctness SJW Intolerance has Reach the Furry Fandom

2 the Ranting Gryphon will not be performing, or should I say blacklisted at Anthrocon according to his Twitter account.

According to his YouTube response the board against the wishes Samuel Conway (aka Uncle Kage), the board decide not to allow 2 to perform at Anthrocon. In a more recent video 2 reveled here was  blacklisted from  performing at Anthrocon including  performing in a melody with Uncle Kage performance and the charity  show. 2 was not schedule for any  solo shows. Both shows are still on the schedule.  He is prohibited to have access to a smaller room, or schedule during times when the main events room  is unused.  Even more baffling is Antrocons response. 2 still attracts the largest audience and if they want freshen the acts why not also replace Uncle Kage’s show and the Charity show?  Most troubling, (now confirmed)is  that  same political correct intolerance that is shutting down speech in out universities, and lead to the Hugo Awards fiasco has moved into the Furry fandom.

Fake News Antifascist Witch Hunts and Left Wing Protest

There been a spat of fake news concerning  so called right wing elements in the furry fandom .  The report was constructed around a few member and tweets instead of serious investigative journalism. I dare say Motherbod has much credibility as Alt-Right and that is not saying much for ether. There no corresponding report in establish news media or mention of alt-furries  in overtly White Supremacist sites like Stormfront.

Fursonas A Review by Acton a Furry for Ten Years

I finally got a chance to watch the document Frusonas being streamed on Hulu.

Fursona is   a documentary by first time producer Dominic Rodriguez. This movie is an attempt to explain furry fandom though the eyes of group of fursuiters.  While the movie tries to deal with media sensationalism, the documentary is drag down by generalizations, questionable motivations and yellow journalism. The movie seems to fall into same mediocre reporting like the sensationalist media not as sensational.

My Low Spoilers Review

We had  our furry meet up on Friday on opening night  to see Zootopia at a local Portland area theater on March 4. We all enjoyed the movie. Normally I never see a movie on the opening weekend, I wait a few week before seeing it or wait until redbox has it. I am also amazed how Zootopia  has taken the furry fandom by storm. I do not believe  at no time  a movie that was seen by the fandom in mass. Many fur groups organized meets at theaters, some groups rented the entire theater for a private showing.  Over all I enjoyed the movie.  The message of tolerance was there but it was not preachy. What the media has missed is not Judy Hopps  experienced bias but how she deals with, and it not like your typical liberal response, she went out  and her best and 100% more instead of protesting for an entitlement.

What really works for me  was the details. Most furries scale  animals  to human size, what  animators of Zootopia did was to  draw the animals to natural  then  scaled the world around them.  For example rodents  have their own neighborhood and  homes and transportation  are scaled to  rodent scale.

In other news I am very skeptical of  buzzfeed and the claims  that Disney  is marketing  to the furry fandom. After all we are relatively still a small fandom. It more like  both Disney  putting out a movie  and our furry interest has intersected. I also doubt the  legitimacy of the so-called  leaked letter. First of all it was not Disney but a third party promotion firm. I also been  to the furlife site and have seen only one post  about the letter.

If one thing anybody should know about the furry fandom  is we are fans of anthropomorphic   animals  in art, literature, role-play and cosplay.  Zootopia  does represent the fandom in this;   We create anthropomorphic   characters them  speculate the world like and they live in and how they  react in this world through art, literature, fursuiting and role-play.
