Yup. I would definitely not count this as clop, but dammit, It feels like this is scratching the surface HARD. And yet- the grass, the mane and tail, the fur, DAT LIGHTING... I want to cuddle her. But just in a snuggle way, NOTHING MORE! Like this, maybe: fav.me/d7tce5e
I mean, come on, could you resist such a fluffy little pony ? I think I've reached the point where some would say TMI, so I'll just leave now...
I'm 19 year old man, you're god damn right I'll jack off to furries. But I'm not in denial about it, I know it's weird, and fucked up, being into the furry fandom isn't normal, Neither is being a brony. Neither is fapping to furries, or ponies. It's all one in the same. You're no better.
So long as your fandom is made up mainly of teenage to adult men who are obsessed with female pony characters The reputation itself won't be fixed.
Actually it does make it perfectly okay to judge people for it. You said so yourself, "The fandom has a bad reputation" I'd be smart to judge someone who is part of a collective which has a bad reputation. If a man hung out with a lot of pedophiles and small children, Would you judge them for being a pedophile? I'd sure hope so.
