Just now I went outside to find my neighbor prancing about in his fursuit. It's a bit surreal to see a six foot tall cartoon skunk waving a plastic scythe about to that "I'm sexy and I know it" song playing from a crappy portable radio.
However it has lead me to ponder, what would my fursona be?
I don't get the furry thing at all. It never made much sense to me and I I think it's pretty odd that enough people feel that way to make some sort of coherent community. It would probably revel something interesting about psychology or sociology if it was investigated thoroughly. I find the lighter elements like animal ears, tails, and whatnot cute and/or attractive but I get kinda lost when the art turns into what amounts to werewolves with curves. Some of it just gives me a gut level disgust that I have to work to suppress since I think that people should be allowed to pretty much do whatever they want as long as it doesn't hurt anyone else, which art and consensual roleplay don't.
I usually type that kind of thing up in Word or as a draft in gmail just for the auto save.
Also a quick question MF.
Do you have any links to some sort of freely available articles, videos, lectures, podcasts, etc about Platonism and, if applicable, the specific version(s) you most identify with? I really only know much about middle Platonism and even that is only in the context of Gnostic Christian writings like some of the works from the Nag Hammadi library and the Gospel of Thomas.
