Furry Hater by NairasIllustrations
Furry Hater
So, last night was eventful for me. It would seem someone I haven't spoken to in 5 years discovered my furry facebook profile and all my photos of my new fursuit.

While I found it damn hilarious now, several years ago when I was in severe depression I may not have handled it so well. I know many of my friends have stuff like this (maybe not to the same extent) said to them from family members or friends when they find out.

If you ever have someone say this shit to you, don't take it. Laugh your ass off and block them. It's honestly the best way to deal with pathetic human beings such as this. It's a f*cking hobby. 

They tell me I'm unhealthy, meanwhile I'm not the one going around on the internet stalking people I knew 5 years ago and attacking their current lifestyle. I'm the happiest and healthiest I've ever been in my life, and life just keeps getting better.

People like this are just idiots, angry angry idiots. That's all I can say. So just go be happy with your hobby, enjoy it with your friends and loved ones, and try not to get upset when someone gets a massive bee in their bonnet just because they disagree with your hobby.

PS: Good thing I have a DEVIANT ART account, eh? bahahahahaha
