Rant inspired by the shitstorm that went down on *NinjaKato
's newest piece.
Okay. So Sterling creates a piece of art featuring her anthro OC in the costume of a Mortal Kombat character, and lots of MK fantards trundle along to her pic just to accuse her of ZOMG RUINING THE FRANCHISE FOREVAAAAR.
I just... man, I can't get my head around this. So what, the character has a cat head and all of a sudden, people decide to flip their shit and accuse her of being a furfag, killing a franchise and being an attention seeker? I just can't understand the logic of these people. All they have to do is head on over to Google, type in Mortal Kombat rule 34, and then they would see what REALLY kills a franchise.
I think the problem with alot of furry haters is that they get alot of their opinions from bad sources such as ED (and it's also partly because furries themselves don't do much to improve their reputation, for example nearly all furry art sites have whole sections dedicated to porn, giving them the sex obsessed name). Not every single furry artist is obsessed with furry porn. Some draw anthro characters because they enjoy it, and animals have more variation than humans.
Alot of popular game characters are anthro-ish. Ratchet, Daxter, Crash, the fox from Starfox, Gex, Banjo Kazooee... you name it. No one accuses these companies of being ZOMGFURFAGS or their artists. So what gives people the right to bitch at someone who just enjoys drawing anthro characters and calling them a furfag? Nothing whatsoever.
Heck, even the cast of the Lion King are anthro characters, anthro doesn't just mean human bodies with animal parts stuck on.
I know, people have the right to free speech and all that crap but I think there's a difference between making a valid observation and making an insulting sweeping generalisation.
There, I'm done for the day. Just had to push that out there
