Furry doc update

So, The Person Who Would Do A Furry Documentary (aka Marianne) asked me to post a link to her current blog (which apparently, does not yet show on Google) - I think it's both in her interest and in ours.

Check it, criticize it, compare it. And honestly, tell me if you can find a valid reason why this particular film must or even may turn out to be negative.

What she has to say for herself

Floor's open - speak or hold your peace.


Alas, I am unfamiliar with the Castro incident. I am behind the times.

I'm not doing it to change SA or PoE or trolls... They'll always be the same. We have no power over them just as they have no power over us.

But I like the viewpoint you present - why participate? I mean, aside from all the little personal reasons such as I am an attention whore, and a pushover for sweet talk. n_n;

I guess it's just that slim chance for something genuinely positive. Something WE can look at and be proud of, and point other people towards (even if it won't change our detractors one bit - again, I'm not trying to). The chance to make something honestly downright cool is what I'm holding out for.

On the other foot, seriously, what's one more negative furry story? It's not like one more is going to make a huge difference. Scathing articles jump up all the time; sarcastic references to furries pop up on Sci-Fi and TechTV. Between MTV, Vanity Fair, CSI, and all... What's one more? Will it make our present publicity problem visibly worse, and will it change the minds of steadfast supporters (as opposed to steadfast objectors)?

I mean, give me a concrete reason that it will turn out negative - the ID of the filmmaker is false or suspicious, or funding is picked up by an organization with interests in sensationalism, or Man Show-esque furry stand-ins have been hired... I'll pull out. I'm not blind (just hopeful). But I'm not NOT going to do this based on suspicions that have nothing to do with the actual facts involved.
I would say that furries are they own worst enemies.

They all insist on keeping the whole fandom closed, keep all the reporters at bay and think they all are scum. At the same time, furries keep drooling over "massively hyper endowed" anthros, and creating a fandom where mindless sex and yiff are the pinnacle of creativity.

Umm... hello?! No wonder the media feels like they are like the late Rodney Dangerfield.

I'm sure that the Star Wars and Trek fandom would not had gotten as big and respected if 95% of the constituents only wanted to see Captain Kirk boinking Han Solo or Princess Leia.

I'm not saying that adult images are bad. I'm guilty of producing my fair share of them. But it certainly would do wonders if furs would strive for a little more creativity than just wanting to see foxes do the "horizontal dance".

But I'm digressing... I would say, more power to you for wanting to give someone a chance, and that you think not all media people are cut from the same mold. In my eyes, that elevates you higher than most of fur fandom.

Just an old croc's opinion.
