For you to discuss or ignore, as you please
The reason most furries have a complicated sexuality is because, as furries, we are not wholly comfortable with the bodies we were born in.

Definitely true. It's agonizing to be human. Of course, the benefit of being human and Furry is that we have our anthromorphism and language.
In terms of raw sexuality, I don't mind admitting that I'm much more attracted to my plushies - even no matter how 'toonish - than I am to the human form. Fact.

I'm more or less the same. I'm asexual (I can't stand the idea of getting "it" wet or icky) and I love plushes. I'd do it with fursuiters provided the suit is built with a "no-contact" SPH.

Buh? What's the "SPH" stand for? *isn't up to scratch on the plushie-lingo*

And SPA is strategically placed appendage.

Oh, I've no problem going along with that. There are two humans I'd be thrilled if they were to notice me in that way, but I'm not holding my breath. By and large, though, I'm not particularly taken by human appearances, and gods know, I'm no fan of human babies - but show me a kitten, or puppy, or a baby red panda, and I'll sigh happily with the best of them. ^_^ (And in the latter case, even perhaps wish I could be such a parent)

I'll take any young animal over a human kid any day.

odious: Complicated Sexuality
I disagree. I'm not of the opinion that I actually am
in reality, physically, mentally, or emotionally, a kangaroo. I'm a human. In fact, I'm glad I'm a human since it has nice perks. It's nice to be able to appreciate things like furry. Anyway, what I'm saying here is that I'm as comfortable in my body as anyone else is. Now, how comfortale the average human is with themselves is another matter. I'll bet if you asked a bunch of non-furs a majority of them actually also have some sort of complicated sexuality also. They just don't really talk about it so much.

Maybe so, and in that respect we're just more honest than the "mundanes" as I like to call them. I never talked about claiming to be
an animal, although I do believe that only furries can really understand what I mean when I say I'm a rat.
