Fuck you, Rexdart.

Now, I’m new at this, and I don’t have the natural lyricism that some posters exhibit, so I’m going to keep this simple.
Fuck you, RexDart. Fuck your malign ignorance. Fuck your idiotic generalities. Fuck your apparent serious attempt to cite Something Awful as a source of information. Fuck the idiocies you’ve spewed [a href=“http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?s=&threadid=217954&highlight=rexdart”]here[/a] and [a href=“http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?s=&threadid=220589”]here[/a]. Fuck your apparent inability to distinguish between the actions of certain members of a group and the actions of every member of the group, and fuck your apparent delight in belittling people in a pathetic and ultimately futile attempt to bring yourself up.
Your brainless spewings on teenagers have been adressed, so I’ll focus on your comments on furries. Yes, some of us do wierd things. Hell, most of us do. This tells you nothing about the rest of the fandom, any more than you can judge the Harry Potter fandom on length and depth of the slash produced therein. So, either actually meet and talk to some of us, and probably gain enough material for a book of belittling remarks about some individuals, or admit you know knothing of what you speak, that you are perpretrating ignorance of the vilest sort, and shut the hell up.
In conclusion, fuck you. That is all.

On one hand, I like Something Awful.

On the other, I don’t like RexDart.

Wow, he’s still up to this, huh? Amazing.

Man, I seem to be missing these l33tspeak roxxor-type posts. Mayhaps RexDart would like to provide a few specific examples of such- y’know, that way we can share in his indignation that these damn kids dare to be on his lawn.

Alternately, perhaps he could just quit being an ignorant troll.

Funny how you seem to think that young people are overly dramatic.

Troy, not to defend RexDart, as I think he is a flaming dipshit, but that thread is almost a year old.

I think you’ll find that was the point.


I love and respect Rexdart. In fact, he is my favourite poster. This I say with a perfectly straight face.

I’m lying, of course, but you must admit that I’m doing it well.

TMwtGG: Do you concede that however entertaining SomethingAwful is (yay for hentai game reviews), they in their very name decry their purpouse, and will certainly bring you the most awful view of whatever they present? Only a fool or someone with something to prove would read SA movie reviews to get an idea of movies in general.

Also, this is my first real pitting. How’d I do?

You lost points for the coding.

I would guess a poll would tell us that 95% of America views ‘Furries’ as freaks. I can’t fault Rex Dart for sharing that feeling. He even qualified his responses in the ‘Furry’ thread to make it clear that he finds the practice as much funny as perverted.

I will go out on a limb and join him. People who get sexual stimulation from dressing as stuffed animals are freaks. I appreciate freakdom and would have no problem having a ‘Furry’ friend or neighbor. I would laugh at any claims that this is part of normal sexual practice.

I disagree with Rex’s views on teenagers, but I can’t fault him for finding furries creepy.

Teenagers, especially 13 or 14 year olds SUCK. And you really dont know how bad they suck until you have had a few…

I’m with fruitbat. The extreme furries are bizarre freakazoids. But hey–their bizarre freakazoidism is none of my business.

How did something Awful get mixed up in this?


Something Awful is rather anti-furry, and RexDart referred to it when talking about his anti-furry stance.

I have no real opinion of furries. I think it’s a bit weird, but it’s none of my business.

Well, fruitbat, inasmuch as the SDMB is a representative sample, http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?s=&threadid=219829 this kind of proves you wrong. To me, the majority respose is “Huh?” (At least before CSI aired.)

Furries as in those people that dress up in bunny customes and get it on?

I can’t believe I know that.

Hangs head.

To clarify, I referred to the Awful Link of the Day, which is A) on their front page and not related to any forums, and B) actually is just a link to another web site somewhere on the 'net. Many “furry” sites have been featured as Awful Links of the Day, highlighting aspect of the fandom. Those sites themselves have zilch to do with SA other than being linked to from SA’s front page for about 48 hours. The content of those sites is mostly left to speak for itself.

I never said I have a problem with furries doing what they want to do, I’m not planning on bombing a FurCon or rounding them up into concentration camps. What I said about them is that I find the furry fandom A) funny, B) scary/creepy, and C) to take itself way too seriously.

There are alot of people in the world that enjoy alot of quirky and bizarre things, even quirky and bizarre sexual things, and I have no problem with whatever consenting adults want to do. Most of those people seem to have no problem whatsoever realizing that what they’re into is indeed a little strange. What’s odd about the furry fandom is that its adherents take themselves so seriously, they refuse to take a step back and admit “you know, I bet this seems pretty bizarre to an outsider” and insist it’s perfectly normal. Go to the big “mainstream” furry board, and this is the general attitude you’ll perceive. They construe a mere opinion that their fandom is creepy as an assault, and think MTV’s Sex2k special on them amounts to persecution.

Many of these people have redefined their entire identity around their fandom, which is what made the episode of CSI so funny to me, knowing a little about them. If someone built their entire life and constructed their entire identity around Star Trek, or some computer MUD, MUCK, or MMORPG they spent 20 hours a day on, wouldn’t you think that was a little obsessive, perhaps even pitiful?

I think “yiffing” is creepy. I think putting on a fursuit is creepy. Even the more PG-rated art I’ve seen on those links creeps me out. That I and many others find it creepy doesn’t stop you or anybody else from doing what they wish, anymore than a guy who finds homosexual intercourse disgusting is automatically going to join up with Fred Phelps and start lynching gays. (Just for analogy, not to substantively equate a bizarre fandom with a whole sexual orientation.) It’s just my opinion, and since the furry fandom/fetish is so far on the margins of our culture I don’t really think it’s that big a deal.

I think I know, but just to clarify, what is “yiffing”?

I saw that MTV special but I didn’t realize there was an actual community, I figured it was a few nuts that had too much time on their hands.

I’m scared to ask but what the hell is Yiffing?
