Congrats to him! I'm not into eSports at all but hey, gotta love anything that might upset the fucking nazis among this industry.

I don't see what's gross about it (my question?)
I honestly just wanted to know and thought it was a good opportunity to ask here. I've never seen a furry thread and never seen someone answering this question. I rarely visit the off topic area.
Even reported and warned? What the hell? That's crazy. Am I too high and missing something?
Maybe work to educate yourself a little before inferring that furries are zoophiles on a public forum with a significant population of furries.

I enjoyed his speech very much. He's really sweet, and bringing furries and LGBTQ+ people into the spotlight is always a good thing. I hope this sort of exposure gets more mainstream throughout the videogame community.

Certain subreddits' outrage at him is just the cherry on top, though I do hope he won't get too much shit for it

Extremely genuine dude, you have to respect that. If something like this makes you mad, you need to check yourself lmao.

Perhaps I was a little rash with my wording, but it comes up time and time again. I did not report you, just to be clear. The primary thing about furry is anthropomorphic characters(fantasy characters), not real animals. Most aren't interested in real animals in the way you were asking, and the few that are tend to have a very rough time in the community as animal abuse is VERY frowned upon.

Most just like having a cute fuzzball as a persona, or enjoy art/comics/novels containing anthropomorphic characters. That's not to say there isn't some skeevy or questionable stuff, but it's hard to find any fandom without some of that sort of thing.

I am ALL for black gay men winning awards and doing big things.

Truly the best part of this show

Sure, I could have googled it myself, but I thought I ask right here, because I liked some online social interaction and I thought that question wouldn't be too off topic, because it's about the furry dude anyway. Besides, wouldn't that be beastiality (sex with animals) instead of zoopholia (interest in sexual stuff with animals)? So wouldn't be furry porn (which many seem to enjoy, including him) zoopholia (where I see to be no problem)

I could see that on the same level of stuff from the senran kagura games, which gets called out here as game for creeps and pedophiles etc.

Edit: My questions shouldn't come across or shouldn't look like I want some kind of outrage, lol. Dude has all my sympathy.
I was honestly just interested and didn't knew this was already talked about so many times here.

Republicans just used Lame Duck Bullshit to cut my sick days.

And that's just the shit affecting me.

Fuck em.

Don't you think it's a bit shitty to get furries to explain to you that they're not criminal deviants when the information that they are in fact NOT zoophiles is commonly available and easy to Google?

If anyone could link me the actual "greatest esports moment of the year" aka that GO1 reset and stuff I'd really appreciate it. I can't remember the tournament it was at and I really want to rewatch it.

Du you mean beastiality?
Zoopholia isn't illegal and so you are not a criminal. Like zoophilic imagery is widely regarded as pornpgraphy. So furry porn is zoophilic. But it's no problem with the law.

It's akin to being banned from an aviary at your local zoo for liking daffy duck a little too much.
Also, you're comparing something that literally depicts minors to something depicting non-existant sentient humanoid creature-people.

Never heard of him before (I don’t really follow the e-sports scene) but he seems super fun and genuinely seems like a good guy. The way he giggles is really contagious :) Don’t understand the “he was cringy” comments, he was awesome.

This was really cool, fun and heartwarming. Really glad. Of course, Resetera managed to turn it into some ugly American-centered shit, but that’s Era.

Great for him, anyway!

Putting aside the issue that furries aren't an exclusively sexual fandom, those who are into the porn are into it for distinctly anthropomorphized fantasy creatures inspired by real-life animals. The sexual fantasy is for human beings with animal traits, not the animals from which those traits are taken. In contrast, zoophilia and bestiality are the attraction to and abuse of real non-human animals, neither of which have anything to do with people who wear cartoon mascot suits at conventions.

I sincerely hope you're just misinformed about this and not just playing dumb so you can make oblique innuendos about how furries are secretly wanting to fuck your dog, because the latter is annoyingly common.

SonicFox seems like a cool dude! Happy for him. He brought just the right flavor to the show, wish there were more moments like that.

Never really cared for the guy, but this speech changed my view on him.

Well earned and much respect.

P.S. still kinda sour about THAT evo switch

It's all cool. I have a much clearer picture now. Genuinely was just interested because there was obviously a lot I didn't know.

I felt kinda bad for him as he was on stage struggling to get his words out - clearly nervous as hell. He pulled it all together in the end tho. Props

Holy shit, after reading this thread and not seeing the video I thought the republican thing was a huge thing of his speech.

Turns out it was just a quick, funny remark by a nervous man.

Don’t be such snowflakes republican supporters.

Anyway, congrats to SonicFox. He’s probably better at fighting games than I could ever be even if I got to be 1000 years old.

Ian said in that thread that he wasn't a conservative he's a classical liberal and now falls center right because the left was taken ovee by identity politics!

Who wants to tell him classical liberalism was never leftist his entire life.
Lol I love that grift

For those that don't know:
Ian is right wing because he needed money and Anita Sarkeesian criticized Witcher 3
