Re: "Aversion Fads" Discussion

I really don't get this discussion...

Why is everyone talking about /b/?

It's an anonymous forum filled with bored teenagers. Not much else to it.

It seems to me a lot of people here are trying to say they don't like furries without saying it, if you know what I mean.

Oh well.
