Furries are people too, with all the good, bad and ugly that brings.
Meaning people in SL are just like everyone else and you can find the same broad range of opinions and attitudes in SL as in RL.

Either you are a fascist that happens to be a Furry, either you are a furry that happens to be a fascist, lol, what comes next ??? An anti Fascist-Furry-Vegetarian-Capitalist-TinyAvi movement ??? Make love not war, get Real, or better - Get Virtual, lol

I got virtual but then I got over it.

There is a Smokey Bear ad on this page. He's my favorite furry of all time.

Those pawprint armbands have been around for a long time, sometimes as part of outfits that have been very suggestive of Nazi Germany. The Third Reich was big on the party uniforms, and when I see somebody who could have been clad by Hugo Boss it's time to wonder.

OK, somebody has to role-play the bad guys, and if they keep it in a sim for that, I can live with it. I write stories set in a furry 1930s that have some very real Nazis. Real-world, you had to be a Party Member for a lot of things, though it wasn't for far from some respectable elements of our modern political mainstream.

And if you can't see similarities, you don't really know any of the history.

But if you get blatant about the symbolism, you will get yourself in a whole heap of trouble. And it doesn't make much difference whether you're furry or not. I'm old enough to have heard stories from my parents, from people I knew. I knew an old guy who had two distinct families, one on Poland and one in England.

This stuff isn't trivial. It isn't a joke.

I am not anywhere close to laughing.
