Welp, it is decided. Tried the species change thing a few years back and discovered I did not want to be a furry. About to try it again, see how it turns out.


I am now apparently the psychotic, split personality bundle of fur otherwise known as eevee. For the next week anyway.

My friend who i've known for about 5 years now has always joked that I would be a Bunny if I was a furry. After recently letting out that I was, he demanded I be a Bunny for species change week! So i'm working on a drawing a disgruntled Pladim in a bunny suit :D

So if you are a furry you don't have to stick with the fursona you make.

Interesting.

People change sometimes. Though SCW is kind of an exception. For example, I've been an arctic fox for all 7 years I've been in the fandom, though SCW is the only time I've been anything else.

Most of us don't know if he is a guy or she is a girl. Notice there are two of him in that picture: male and female. That way she remains androgynous. ;)

Or as Sleet put it:

I'm pretty sure that Sleet is just a genderless robot that laughs at us.

As it is, I have been dubbed a Civit Cat for the week by Copper, our resident eevee. It's interesting because being a cat means no thumbs, and therefore I cannot work doing the things I usually do. *Plays with a ball of yarn*

Believe me, (s)he doesn't give anything up from general or personal chat unless (s)he wants to. For over a year I read everything (well, I didn't go out of my way to read stuff, but I paid attention to whatever I happened to read) and kept mental notes of every talk that might produce a confirmation of his/her gender. I still couldn't tell you one way or the other. Sleet will forever remain an arctic fox that we cannot call a him or her.

As for knowing that a Civit isn't a cat, I knew. But Copper proclaimed that I was a Civit cat, and who said we had to be a species that actually exists?

There are a few girls, but most people are male. And yeah, I'm very thorough. I don't give it away so easily!

Also, why can't my hypothetical male fursona be beautiful, huh? :P

except one time. what she said didn't give him away, but it did allow me to find a profile of hers on a social network that told me his gender. (actually I didn;t think it actually gave her away until he called me a butt for finding it :P)

Man...the fact no-one knows Sleet's gender is gonna annoy the mess out of me.
I've had issues guessing someone's gender online correctly in the past. It often happens when a chick uses a masculine sounding name or when a dude uses a feminine sounding name.
I thought
Sleet sounded pretty masculine. It being androgynous never crossed my mind.

Sleet, along with every other user of the forums has every right to keep whatever details about themselves they may choose private while online. That includes their reasons for doing so, so long as they are not malicious, which Sleet is not.

Sleet is like my best friend ever and we dated a few years ago. Some of us know her gender, but we respect his privacy too much to let her secret out of the bag.

I do believe the fuss about Sleet's gender is because we are all accostumed to know other people's gender at a glance, and the idea that someone's gender is not only unknown, but deriverately hidden from us, makes us uneasy, to say the very, very least.

I keep insisting that Sleet switches gender intermittently and involuntarily every few seconds/instants, but nobody wants to hear a word of it. Say it's not true. They are denying it because they don't want anyone to find out, I say!

Besides, Sleet already left a trail of bread bowls through the comments in the forums for you to follow.

Alright guys, a little talk about Sleet's gender is fine, but it's been going on a little long now and I feel it should probably be redirected to the Chat Thread at this point.

Now back to telling us if you're a furry or not. :P

I wish I could change my vote. I voted "no" but since then I've acquired a fursona and joined dA and FA and I've decided that I want a fursuit and want to go to cons. Plus I discovered that two of my friends with whom I went to high school are furry and one even has a fursuit.
So yeah, I'd say I'm definitely and officially a furry now. :P
