Why can't they keep it in the closet? - The online computery journal thingy of a turtle

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

Y'know what? I'm starting to get pretty darn tired of hearing other people talk about how they don't want to hear about other people's fetishes. I hear that about 100 times as often as I hear people talk about their fetishes! Yeah, that's what's wrong with furry fandom: too many people shoving their distaste for other people's fetishes down everybody's THROATS! :}

This isn't directed at you. :} Mainly I'm making fun of other people elsewhere on LJ who've been making "clean up the fandom" type noises lately.

I think that ordinary, decent people in this country are sick and tired of being told what ordinary decent people are fed up with being sick and tired of!

I'm certainly not! And I'm sick and tired of being told that I am!

Eh, I don't think it's bad for people to talk about their fetishes. I think a lot of furry fans just lack an understanding of what is and isn't an appropriate forum. God knows the Internet is a gold mine for talking about fetishes of all types. And that's a good thing. But you see furry fans in magazines and TV specials who proudly talk about hanging furry porn on their living room walls. That's just not normal or appropriate. It wouldn't be appropriate or normal if it were vanilla human porn, either!

But see, my point is, I don't think it's as big a problem as some people make it out to be.

That could turn into an endless loop! "I like to talk about how I like to talk about how I like to talk about how I like to talk about how I like to talk about how I like to talk about how I like to talk about..."

Tangentally, but: As far as I can tell, furrydom's biggest problem is the constant bickering and infighting. Nobody in the real world knows or cares about furries.

And all those people who complain about people who complain about people really get my goat!

Thank heavens for the people who complain about people who complain about people who complain about people, the world needs more of them.

Argh, doujoux beat me to the joke.

While I'm at it, I must heartily complain about people who reply to their own posts, what kind of narcissistic morons are they?

I see more complaints about the misuse of homonyms than the misuse itself.

I hear that about 100 times as often as I hear people talk about their fetishes!

So, should we talk more about fetishes to bring up the average a bit?

Okay!

In many West African religious traditions, many people believe that certain man-made objects have supernatural powers over other people. These objects are called fetishes. Charles de Brosses theorized that fetishism is the most primitive stage of a religion, followed by polytheism, monotheism, and totemism...
