There once was a joke within Republican circles, that defines a hatemonger as a conservative who is arguing with a liberal and the conservative is winning.
Patch at Dogpatch press made another vision casting proclamation:
“Over the last 2 years with the demise of Vine, many Furries have started to migrate over to YouTube. Many have amassed groups of followers, hold regular livestreams on Twitch, or have Patreons. And some have used this platform as a guise to get away with borderline toxic or outright hateful behavior.”
So what is this toxic or outright hateful behavior? He list Trump Supporters, JonTron, and 2 the Ranting Gryphon as examples. The problem is I cannot I find anything hateful about them. I disagree with Jon Tron and Trump, but that does not make them hateful. Patches’ standard is anything I disagree with is hate speech.
It is not the Fury Youtubers of different political persuasion are toxic but vision casting tyrants like the members of Anthrocon board towards 2, Patch, Deo, and Cultrally F’d. They that feel the need to cast vision for the fandom and drum out any who disagree with their vision. We do not need a leader in the fandom. We not your community to toy with. I do not need a community to be furry. The furry fandom is about the love and interest in anthropomorphic animals in art , literature, and fursuiting.
One can express ideas from Right or Left, sexual orientation, and religion in the fandom. We may disagree and create alternative (i.e LGBT or Christian fur groups). What we must not do is to make one politics standard for the entire fandom. My view borrowed for my view of Christian liberty, is one can speak for themselves but cannot make their scruples the rule for the entire furry fandom. Politics is irrelevant in the Furry fandom. The fandom should be a place and time where a Christian conservative and a Transgendered leftist, who disagree on 90% of anything, can come to at a con and have civilized discussion what they have in common, the love of anthropomorphic characters. If you do not like that then the exit door is to the right. please leave quietly.
