Re: “Free to Be Furry? Group Fights to Wear Animal Costumes in Burlington

I know this is an old article and that my post is well past prime time, but as a member of the furry community I have to point out one of the comments that was made about Furries "not being performers" and that they do not "add to the VIBE of the city" is just totally a bunch of crap. First off I would like that person to put one of these suits on and try it out, then tell me it is not a performance. Secondly, I dare that person to contact the City of Pittsburgh, PA and ask them about the furries and their impact on the city! Ask the city of Pittsburgh if they are pleased with the nearly $7 million that Anthrocon pulls into the cities local economy each year. Ask the city if its citizens enjoy the fursuit parade that has now been opened to public that has the potential to draw even more dollars into the economy each year. Pittsburgh has itself a gold mine with Anthrocon and would be foolish to give it up (although I don't think that would ever happen now).
