Furry Dice



Have you heard of ‘furries’? Despite media mischaracterisations labelling them as fetishists or people who believe they are animals, furries are just fans. Their fandom centres on anthropomorphic animal characters – think Bugs Bunny or Peppa Pig. ‘Demographically, the furry fandom is comprised predominantly of white males in their teens to mid-twenties. [Most are people] you would expect to find in a typical geek or nerd subculture: Above-average school performance…an interest in computers and science, and a passion for video games, science fiction, fantasy, and anime. Less typical, however, is the fandom’s LGBTQ demographics: Furries are seven times more likely than the general population to identify as transgender and about five times more likely to identify as non-heterosexual’ ( So it comes as no surprise that the furry fandom is characterised by what we might call radical inclusivity – welcoming and non-judgmental to all. It sounds like we could all learn something from the furry community.
