I always found it odd why there aren't more women in the furry fandom. What is it about this subculture that attracts men but not women?[/color]
There are more than you think. Just not in the places the guys go.

MFF was more female than pretty much any subset of furries I've ever seen.

To keep more on topic, a lot of the people here do act a bit feminine, which is great because that tends to mean they are much more considerate. ^^
There has been 3 people that I have thought were Female for the longest time until they told me otherwise.

Yes, it's is hard to befriend girls, and some turn out to be Psycho's and Abusive.... So abusive

Excuse me?! How is that any different from males? If we hear one more sexist word from your mouth you are going on vacation, do you understand me?

That's pretty much how it works. Girls are met with either harassment, hitting-on, white knighting, or surprise, to the point where they always feel like outsiders. Whereas the guys are treated like they're nothing special so they feel at home.

Yeah, no kidding. I've considered leaving certain male-dominated websites because of rumors being spread about me, or random people hitting on me and not stopping when I've flat-out told them not to. Not to mention that I get attacked almost every time some guy goes through a bad break-up or has bad relations with any gal in his life; apparently just because I'm a female, that makes me absolutely no different from someone I've never even met and most likely do not resemble at all.

It sometimes gets to the point where I seriously just want to yell at somebody. But then I stop and think, "Wait, I'm the better person. Hahahaha. Haters gonna hate."

I have often been mistaken as female on certain areas of the net. I'll make sure its straight here, I'm a guy. Might not be the most masculine guy out there but if you ever heard my voice you probably would not deny it.

I remember a female gamer I made friends with online a couple of years ago who immediately thought that I was female for many months without even asking my gender. Then one day in a conservation I actually realized that she was referring to me as female and decided to correct it. We drifted apart shortly afterwards.

Post Re: Male or Female
Just went and read the entire topic... Woo!
Found out some things I never knew. Like transparency... or like Kyderra being a guy!
And decided that it would be nice to have a Sleet-like gender, but I flipped a coin instead... And it landed on it's side... :?
So I decided my gender is Pie. The breakdown is 87% Pie, 6% Q, and 7% Male. π for short

By the way I was wondering who was comforting The Game in this video :lol: : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hwS-__e4b7g
Also why was Kyderra promoting being a girl as the top comment...

I'm guessing you've never talked to a girl in your life before, I can see why if you say things like that.

Some people perhaps wish to remain incognito of their genders to the general public. Nevertheless, it is quite surprising.

But what would it matter if they chose their correct gender? The list does not really tell you who chose what. ^^; I am still confused by that.

Nah, you're just using the wrong font*. Here, lemme try.

Back on topic, you guys.

*Do not actually try to use that font for that purpose. That's our job.

Indeed, please make a stronger effort to stay on topic. Additionally, please don't mini-mod. If you see a post that breaks the rules, you should report it instead of talking about how it is bad.

It's been so long since I've said this that I daresay it bears repeating: I'm a boy.

Well to be fair, you named your character exactly to the name of a Female Character on a game for a time, and anyone who just meet you might guess you are. But yea, I would not say you are all to feminine. I hope that is not a mean comment, hard to tell. .-.

Hmm, my sister loves Cereal.
Simplest breakfast to make and can vary in taste depending on what one you choose.
Dun think there is any gender related stereotype on that?
