My 15 year old son recently confided that he is bi and a "furry". I love my son and do not judge him by what he has told me. I have found great support and information regarding Bi but the information I have found regarding furries is somewhat disturbing. I am talking to him to try and understand what the term means to him and he does not identify with the sexual or iffy side of furries. I am wondering if anyone has had experience with this. I've been to comic cons, etc. and there are lots of folks who like to dress up, I'm wondering why he wants to dress up in a suit that really hides his identity.View Thread
