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

I'm sharing this at my furry news blog, dogpatchpress.wordpress.com. I notice the Vermont Furs have posted a followup. http://www.furaffinity.net/journal/6635987/

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

Burlington is 297 miles from Times Square. To excuse prejudice, all executive director Ron Redmond can point to is a trashy news headline from hundreds of miles away. "Think of the children" is such BS.

There's a real problem, but if Ron Redmond actually cared, he could point out that it happens inside homes from people you know, and even figures with caregiver or director titles.

The least likely source is strangers on the street, including a handful who wear unwieldy costumes to be creative. "I just covered my body in 50 lb's of carpet, time to harass some kids," said nobody ever. It doesn't matter if it's just a hobby, prejudice still stinks.

I would love to spend a lot of money traveling to do my hobby in Vermont. I'll take it to Pittsburgh, where the mayor declared a day to honor the furry convention.
