The Furfandom: Fetishism as a Mental Disorder
It is almost sad seeing how those involved in various cults and sects are so eager to convince the world around them that they are perfectly okay and normal. Whether it is a cult like the furfandom trying to convince the world that there is nothing wrong with adults running around in fur suits humping young kids, or a sect like Scientology trying to convince the world that a few selected will be saved by aliens in big shiny spaceships.
This and previous articles are not written for those with an already high involvement in various cults and/or sects, as they are beyond seeing or experiencing the truth and/or reality in all its splendid and enlightening simple forms. The audience targeted here primarily consists of concerned parents, family, friends, and those considering either entering the cult/sect or increasing their involvement with afore mentioned.
It is interesting mentioning that the topic of fetishism is listed as part of a chapter that covers “Sexual and Gender Identity Disorders” along with topics including paedophilia, incest, rape, sadism and sexual dysfunctions. Realize whilst reading this that we are talking abnormal psychology here, in other words, people considered mentally sick.
Those involved with the cult may not believe the fact that they are sick, and will do anything in their power to make you believe that they are not, but studying the various mental disorder related symptoms, and comparing them to a “normal” standard shows a picture that many – if not most – cult members will obviously reject. This rejection is often accompanied with a remark like “but you don’t understand us”. Those considered “normal” do not have to understand those considered “abnormal”, as those considered abnormal need psychological and medical treatment.
Anyway, without going in too many details an abstract follows providing a short description around the phenomenon known as fetishism. It may become clear that many of those running around in fur suits and/or drawing pornographic furry materials are more than just a little bit weird. Many of them have serious mental disorders (i.e. paedophilia, anger management issues, anxiety disorders, fetishism, identity disorders, etc.) and hence seeking contact with these individuals (many will suffer from more than one disorder at a time) comes with an incredible high level of risk. Whereas most adults are capable of calculating these risks, younger people (10-25) are not.
So, are furfandom members normal considering the fact that 40+ year old guys (read adults) dressed like furry animals are humping (yiffing – having sex with/simulating sex with) 20- year old kids (read minors) dressed like furry animals (online and/or offline)? The straightforward answer is: No!
Both paedophilia and fetishism are clear (mental) disorders, and categorized as such. What a combination of these two disorders may lead to is everyone’s guess, but it is clear that various cults and their members, including the furfandom, exhibit behaviour that is part of both.
Next time sexual sadism and sexual masochism will be discussed and how this influences your healthy thinking and behaviour.
Be safe, and think before you act!
Abstract from “Abnormal Psychology”:
Fetishism involves a reliance on an inanimate object for sexual arousal. The fetishist, usually a male, has recurrent and intense sexual urges toward nonliving objects, called fetishes, and the presence of the fetish is strongly preferred or even necessary for sexual arousal to occur.
Beautiful shoes, sheer stockings, gloves, toilet articles, fur garments, and, especially, underpants are common sources of arousal for fetishists.
Some can carry on their fetishism by themselves in secret by fondling, kissing, smelling, sucking, placing in their rectum, or merely gazing at the adored object as they masturbate.
Fetishists sometimes become primarily interested in making a collection of the desired objects, and they commit burglary week after week to add to their hoard.
The attraction felt by the fetishist toward the object is involuntary and irresistible.
It is the degree of the of the erotic focalization – the exclusive and very special status the object occupies as a sexual stimulant – that distinguishes fetishisms from the ordinary attraction that, for example, high heels and sheer stockings may hold for heterosexual men in western cultures.
The disorder usually begins by adolescence, although the fetish may have acquired special significance even earlier, during childhood.

The Furfandom: Pedophile Paradise
It is interesting noticing how keen the furfandom and its members are to be accepted into our society and be regarded as normal. Somehow the furfandom cult leaders seem to be under the impression that having many members equals normality, and hence acceptance. However, having shown that the furfandom fulfills the various criteria for being labelled a cult/sect, it is highly unlikely that this will ever occur. Like the Islamic State Death Cult, Scientology, or the Klu Klux Klan the furfandom cult preaches a message that is strongly against current accepted values: “unconditional love between anyone from any age, any gender and any species.” Although this may sound noble, it is merely a constructed artificial message with the intent of grooming young vulnerable people into a world of pornographic chaos led by numerous mentally confused (read sick) and very unstable (read psychotic and dangerous) adults.
Here are just some of the many perpetrators listed:
Now do not get me wrong, as an individual, I have nothing against a person in the age group of 20-30 starting a relationship with someone much older say 40-60, although I still believe this to be unnatural, even more so unnatural if it concerns same-sex relationships, but hey, we live in a free world. Without doubt, individuals over 20 (preferably over 25) should be able to make decisions on their own behalf. The problem that occurs within the furfandom cult is older mature men 40+ having relationships with younger immature men (mainly boys) (20-) whom they have groomed into the cult from a much younger age – we are talking young vulnerable kids in the age-group from 10 to 20. Realize that no kid is more vulnerable than a young kid who struggles with his/her sexual identity. The person who portrays himself as the BFF and good Samaritan (these people are often rigidly religious and moralistic) is in essence nothing more than a pedophile who in our case hides himself (very occasionally herself) in a fur suit or behind a keyboard. These people are more than happy to pay you (assuming you are in the age group of 10 to 20) hard cash as a first step into their indoctrination and manipulation (read sophisticated brainwashing) program.
Here is a simple example:
Say two individuals of 25 and 45 have a relationship. This sounds okay, but what if the older partner started grooming the younger partner from the age of 15 (or even younger). This would make the older partner 35 and the younger partner 15! This has nothing to do anymore with a healthy relationship, but everything to do with the concept of pedophilia. We are talking a mentally full-grown adult, with the means of a full-grown adult (i.e. money and other material assets – think houses, cars, computers, games, mobile phones, musical instruments, etc.) playing with the not mentally fully-grown mind of a curious child! Welcome to the furfandom, and let me include Bronycon, cults!
Here is a short definition of what it means to be categorized as pedophile:
“Pedophiles are adults, usually men who derive sexual gratification through physical and often sexual contact with prepubertal children unrelated to them. The offender must be at least 16 years old and at least five years older than the child. The pedophile can be heterosexual or homosexual. Sometimes, the pedophile is content to stroke the child’s hair (so sex does not have to be part of it), but he may also manipulate the child’s genitalia, encourage the child to manipulate his, and less often, attempt intromission. The molestations may be repeated over a period of weeks, months, or years if they are not discovered by other adults or if the child does not protest.”

So, are the furfandom members normal considering the fact that 40+ year old guys are humping (yiffing) 20- year old kids (online and/or offline)? The straightforward answer is: No! These people are sick and their mental illnesses are clearly documented in various works covering the science of abnormal psychology.
Next time Fetishism will be discussed and how this influences your healthy thinking and behavior.
Furmeat – the creation of addicts
People under the influence of cults is similar to that we observe in addicts. Typical behaviour for both includes draining bank accounts, neglecting children, destroying relations with family and losing interest in anything except the drug or cult.
So, summarizing the first four cult related attributes:
1. A need for attracting attention
2. A need for emphasizing the visual and emotional
3. A need for rituals, specific language, and some type of hierarchical system
4. A need for obtaining value from the members
So, what’s the fifth and last attribute that cults require to prosper?
It’s called HATE.
Whether you consider the ISIS Death Cult, Scientology, Klu Klux Clan, Furfandom, or Bronycon, these cults actually thrive on hate. Once a person is groomed into the cult the outside hatred directed towards the cult, and the “free unconditional love” (it’s not free and certainly not unconditional) shown inside the cult make it extremely difficult for an insider to return to the real world. Of course the cult “leaders” will do anything that lies within their power to keep the hate flowing, as it actually works in their best interest. Hate locks in the cult members.
The question becomes where does all the hatred come from? The answer is actually quite simple.
“People tend to live by a written and unwritten system of rules, values and norms.”
Anyone that steps outside of this system, or in the case of cults are lured outside of this system, will be looked upon unfavourably. It’s related to survival of the species, and the same occurs in the world of animals. Sick animals, or animals that behave in a non-standard way get excluded from their group as it endangers the genetic pool and survivability of the remainder of the group. It’s as simple as that!
That brings another question to mind. Why are certain individuals actually attracted to cults in the first place? Is there something wrong with them that increases the chance for them to be groomed into the cult? Is there some type of predisposition at work here? Do people that end up in cults somehow lack the ability (empathy) to perceive reality clearly, or do they have some mental/psychological issues to start off with?
Anyway, in the next batch of articles I will cover various mental illnesses as published in numerous works from a branch of psychology known as “Abnormal Psychology”. It seems that cults are predominantly led by people that show severe psychopathic behavioural traits, and people that have some sort of need to hide their true identity (i.e. paedophiles, child molesters, etc.).
Don’t get me wrong here – it’s close to impossible to penetrate the veil of charisma, manipulation, deceitful techniques and charms that cult leaders use to groom their victims, but I guess, we have to start somewhere, and knowledge is still the key to building up an understanding of how this world actually works.
Yes, as a reader you’re likely to be Gen-Y, or Gen-Z (both born after 1980) and you’re also likely to question your sexual identity (am I gay, lesbian, or straight). That’s all perfectly normal! Every human being that walks around on this planet is going through this stage. Again, that’s all perfectly normal!
What’s not normal is adults running around in fursuits targeting you in your most vulnerable stage of your life and grooming you into their perverse sex-cult for own personal satisfaction. The grooming starts on the Internet as being part of the Gen-Y/Gen-Z generation nothing is more important to you than being connected to people around you in real life and using the Web (your Internet connection and mobile phone/s are an extension of your Ego: your Self, your being), but if I know that, others well over 35 also know this and more importantly know how to use/abuse this knowledge.
The perpetrators can call themselves whatever they want (furry, pan-sexual, omni-sexual), but men and women well over 35 targeting young kids in the age-group of 10-20 and paying them hard cash on sites like this one to draw doggy porn for them (and worse) are in the world of “normals” labelled as paedophiles, psychopaths and perverts. They will do anything in their power to destroy any type of normal relationship you may currently have with friends or family, and replace these relationships with cult-driven ones.
Stay safe – and think before you act!
