Are you sure he DID have a press pass?   Or could he have just registered as an attendee who taped the parade?

Hmmm. Well - look at it this way - it wouldn't take much for someone who was there to track down where the footage from inside Hall A came from and make sure that person never gets a pass again. The incredibly good news is - aside from the 'jungle fever' guy there really isn't anything there incriminating. They end up sounding like fools for naming it a 'fetish'.

 

As Uncle Kage once stated similiarly, 'Yes, silly me you're right. Furries are the only people to ever think about sex.' (para.)

I reported the video on YouTube for misleading text in both Title and Description... doubt it'll go anywhere but, meh.

This guy obtained a press pass as part of a scheduled press tour. As soon as it was discovered he wasn't legit, he was quickly removed from the convention by the Dorsai (which is why he barely got any material to use).

Anthrocon is committed to providing a safe environment for our attendees and takes matters like this very seriously. We will be reviewing our press procedure and taking appropriate action to reduce the chance of this occuring in the future.

If it makes anyone feel better, the term "fetish" does not neccesarily have a sexual connotation to it.

One of it's definitions does, but another defintion is: "a course of action to which one has an excessive and irrational commitment."

And speaking candidly as a fur myself, having a giant parade of full body character/fur suits, might be considered excessive and irrational, to the outside view.

Of course, the interview clip in the middle is kind of suggestive that the person who stitched the video together might have been trying to push towards the OTHER definition. So I'm not saying they're innocent in their intent.

Personally that's why I try to avoid the word Fetish if I can, because people tend to assume it's sexual, when it isn't necessarily.

Props to the staff for figuring out he wasn't legit and kicking him out.

I do believe the guy in the "interview" was fake, he has a thin line of jumping pixels that do not match the rest of the video, it's something you get when posting a body on top of a bad green screen or when using a poor video editor.

It's not green screen. The light kicks are accurate for something like the DLLCC lighting. If he was pasted in. with the lighting in the video the way it was, you'd be hard pressed to not find a shadow on the back of the performer.

youre giving them WAY too much credit. the 'interview' is real, but it was meant to be a joke, not an interview.

If Kage got him first, I wanted the left overs !!


(This is my reply to his You Tube Channel)

I have been in this fandom for 13 years now, and not ONCE have ever considered my involvement a fetish. I do not have to justify to this person (or others) why I enjoy this fandom as much as I do. Maybe he has no friends, and does not share the same feelings this fandom can produce on us.  Why on earth does everything have to have sexual undertones now!! Why can’t we all just get together with friends, that we only get sea once year and let our hair down, and have some fun.

I think some people assume furry fandom is sexual because that's why THEY would do it.

In the oh so famous words of our chairman "Yes,furries are the ONLY people who have sex and you're just jealous" I'm fairly certain his whole thirty seconds of "video evidence" of us being "sexual" will surely put his name in grand,shining lights forever as another idiot who will now most likely be banned from EVERY fur con for illigitimently ascertaining a press pass in order to do what they always do,get 30 seconds of fame on youtube before everyone forgets about them. Way to go Dance
