Toronto gay paper Xtra focuses on furry and plush

Your rating: None Average: 1 (1 vote)

Now, first of, I'd like to note this isn't some "New Yorker" sort of gay publication. It's always full of sex articles, the raunchier the better. So the focus on sex is not actually something they themselves as the publication (and presumably their readers) see as bad. Also, as a gay publication, they choose to focus often on homosexuality in the various fandoms.

Note from Gene: Click "Read more" for the rest of Mel's summary and the link.

There is also an interesting mention from an animal rights activist on 'the appropriation of animal images' by people who don't give back to the natural world, and mentions specifically the bear sub-culture within the gay community.
