Fandom poked at again on TV. *yawn*
You'd think that after ER, the TV producers would have forgotten about the Furry Fandom...
But, it looks like it's happened again..
On the syndicated TV program She Spies, during an episode that aired locally last night called "The Martini Shot," about halfway through the episode, two of the characters end up at what can be described as a "Furry Cotillion," where they end up dressing in bunny suits before approaching a person they were looking to speak with. They say who they are inside the suits, at which point, the man pulls off his head, looks at them, and the exchange goes like this:
Man: "Are you part of the lifestyle?"
Spies: "The Lifestyle?"
Man: "Are you.. a furry?"
Man: "People who like to dress up as their favourite animals."
Somehow, I think they consulted with George Gurley and the person who wrote the ER episode for their "inside info" on the fandom :P
Y'know, I think they're painting with a rather broad brush, but somehow the idea of a cotillion would seem like kind of a fun thing..
