Storyline

Of modern fandoms around, few are newer and least understood in mainstream Western culture than furry fandom: the fandom of anthropomorphic fantasy characters aka funny animals. This film interviews various devotees to this interest, such as their personal lives and their personal opinions on their hobby, whether it be simply an appreciation of the artistic products or wearing elaborate furry costumes complete with alternate personas. Furthermore, the internal conflict of the fandom is explored between those who struggle to maintain a carefully positive public image of the community for outsiders and those esoteric souls who insist on enjoying their hobby their way, not matter how extreme. Against the looming fear of the mainstream media determined to exploit the most sensational examples they can find, this conflict is bound to make the fur fly.

Kage
28 March 2017 | by truthseeSee all my reviews

And interesting documentary which focuses on the many problems of the fandom from the inside and how it claims to be tolerant yet routinely attacks its own.

Kage is a fascist and unless your agreeing with him he will try his best to put you down. I think a lot of people have been on the butt end of this. I think he thinks he means well even even though to everyone else it just comes out as quite nasty. It can be funny to the crowd until your on the receiving end of his butt hurt.

However from Kages' point of view his views are more important than anyone elses and if you ever try to debate with him expect a wrathful putdown. I wonder if he ever sits down and thinks about the people he has judged and tried to overpower?

So here we are: his barbed nature now got himself an unauthorized documentary about him in part which kind of shows how he operates in trying to tell everyone what Furry is about. Heil Kage.

Furry is so many things to so many people that him trying to own a specific brand of Furry which is media clean has become a mania which now a lot of people try to enforce on the various chat hangouts, which is why the politics of furry has got so boring. Yeah OK he is trying to sell a kid friendly brand of Furry. Doesn't he think Furries grow up?

Furry is what you want it to be about. If you want scandal - yeah dig and you'll find it like anywhere in life... However for most people in furry I think its really its just about a group of people hanging out. I think Kage is licking his wounds now after being seen to be so mean to a few of the furries who are visibly in fact a lot more furry than he is ;-) As for him deeming Boomer mentally ill. Is there a mental illness classification for loud ,overbearing control freak. If there isn't one, maybe there should be... hehe, eh Mr Uncle Doctor... Boom! I don't know if I speak for anyone else... I love the conventions - hate the politics.

This documentary explores the people and juxtapositions the politics well and I am really glad someone is finally asking the questions - "and who are you to tell me what I can do" in a furry documentary.

I guess everyone who took part in this documentary are now banned for life from anything Kage does. I guess this Kage ban wont apply tio himself though which is kind of the point this documentary was trying to make - there's no instructing the Fuehrer.
