Quentin Long, artist and editor of the furry webzine Anthro, points to the Vanity Fair article "Pleasures of the Fur" and the CSI episode "Fur and Loathing."
Both characterize furries as weird sexual deviants.
Media coverage of the fandom, says Long
, "overwhelmingly tends to avoid the relatively boring ,people who dress up in silly costumes to goof around' storyline."
Instead, the cameras gravitate toward those aspects that make it look like "an attention-grabbing, psychotic freak show," he
said, "something a lot closer to, ,Eww, skunkfuckers!
Film at 11!'"
