This douchebag, "Nomad" has been busting my chaps over how it's fine & wonderful to teach kindergarteners about gender fluidity, etc. Then, out of the blue, lulz-manna from Heaven:

Nomad wrote:*waves* Hi, this is your neighborhood furry here to say something that may be better left unsaid, but which still bothers me every time this subject comes up. There are people who identify as animals. No, I don't mean furries in general, in my experience most of them aren't like that. They may have fursonas, they may identify *with* an animal species in various ways, but it's not really the same thing as believing oneself to actually be that animal. Fursonas can be many things though, and this isn't the place to discuss that.
But believing oneself to be an animal is a thing, and I doubt it's exclusive to the furry fandom. That's just where I encounter it. I've seen talk of things like the feeling of missing limbs for animal body parts that humans just don't come with. There's a lot more, but suffice to say that this is a real thing and not just the fevered imaginations of a hate preacher.
I still don't really know what to think about them, and I'm not really here to tell you what to think. Just to ask that you tread softly when discussing this topic, because as strange as it may seem to you, you are talking about a real thing that impacts people. Personally, while I'm not sure what to think I know what I'm going to do. If someone says they're a cat, then they're a cat. What's the difference to me?
In case you're wondering, I'm very certain that I'm a human.
I'd venture easily 10% of the Hordlings are furries or My Little Ponies. Who was the one that posted dick-in-stuffed-animal selfies?
