Vice Media (Canada) came to CanFURence in 2017 to speak with and record Furries and the Furcience team at work. Here are a couple minutes of what they got in a new piece just released yesterday. Unfortunately, some have experienced regional blocks, and if you can’t watch it in your area/country, apologies in advance. We’re advocating for this to change, but the decision isn’t ours, and we’re waiting as anxiously as some to see if this changes because the world needs to see this!
Furscience is the dissemination arm of the International Anthropomorphic Research Project (IARP)
“Given that most furries are LGBTQ+, this may preclude many from being religious, especially if the religion is at odds with LGBTQ+ people,” said
@furscience researcher Dr. Courtney Plante, on why 75% of furries are non-religious. https://religionnews.com/2022/08/02/mixing-faith-with-furries-things-can-get-hairy/
My reply with credit for Troj, a member of @furscience. Troj personally made a map of where the urban myth spread.
Our team is working away on a book that includes updated statistics (between the other projects!). It will be a bit before it is released. However, we were recently asked on twitter about the fandom's gender breakdown. Here's data from three online and convention studies (21-22).
