>>>First of all babe, no one should ever make you feel isolated or excluded because ur not 'gay' or of the bisexual or homosexual persuasion. Honestly treating someone as an outsider because of their sexual implications is just another form of sexual segregation that has no business in progressive society? Don't feel insulted from that situation babe, a lot of people that feel the need to collectively exclude themselves from others are those with their own issues that they can't easily articulate. I'm not saying they're necessarily Aholes for making you feel like shit, but most likely feel that they are within their 'element' and all those that don't share their views or opinions are considered strange by their standards. And most likely these same people feel just as isolated in normal society, so they feel like they can unwind in certain conventions of personal intrest, in which they assume people will naturally agree with their lifestyle or way of

>>>Anyway the only reason i wanted to touch base on that is because i've been in the same situation. I'm straight, and I'm slowly excepting my role as a furry. However, although this planet I live on is  obscure and strange, like living in the 4th dimension at times, I have one sole anchor of unshaken confidence. And that is my sexual identity. I've been there and done that, but i'd be making a fool of myself to pretend to be someone i'm not. And i find confidence in that single identity. I am who I am, and if the furry community (and granted ive only been a part of it for about 8 months now) is really that accepting then there should be no barriers of sexual segregation. Stand tall in who you are babe, and don't let the slings and arrows of the exceptional few knock down your confidence, or ruin your opinion of quite possibly a great avenue for personal growth and identity. Again im drawing straws here in consideration for other people's experiences,
