Furries converge on San Jose Convention Center for Further Confusion

“The Furry community seems dedicated to inclusion and acceptance. If the famous Creature from the Black Lagoon is understood to be an embodiment of the dark, libidinous urges we fear in ourselves, Furries seem determined to personify an accepting and unconditional love. The costumes provided a plush suit of armor that allows the wearer to assume a different identity and cushions them from the anxieties of social interactions. Because of this, the community attracts all sorts of misfits from the mainstream looking for a community to call their own. The community boasts of its queer, neurodivergent and disabled members, and the convention provided panels focusing on gender and sexuality.”
