what i find unique about our fandom is, that whatever your ideas are, you are accepted for what you are, you can tell your life problems, and most will be an ear for you, or a shoulder.
also finding that where ever you are, you always can find someone to stay at.
aswell, im one of the rare straight guys, like direlda, yet i most times feeling more at ease with furs than normal persons.
i had a blasted time when i was in the US, and for that i thank all the furs whom i met.
accept opinions, and care for each other, that makes a fandom strong
