Thanks for the nominations. It's much appreciated.

SonicFox may have met his match with Zabivaka... that's gonna be a tough one. The other two are well made as far as design goes though, so it'll be crime that since this is a 'popularity contest' it'll be more judged on which suit had more cultural impact then design.

Umm, Twitter apparently got paid off by Disney, you guys ...

Oh, no. It's happening. Avengers is going to win and it's all my fault!

Your rating: None Average: 1.3 (6 votes)

Though, actually, if it ends up beating Peter Rabbit, I mean, that's probably okay. Just not Isle of Dogs. Or, I guess, Spider-Man, which was just a better movie, even though it's technically on the same "one character wonder" furry level. I haven't seen Mary Poppins, but that also seems like more of a couple scenes with some furry stuff than actually furry, as well.

Your rating: None Average: 4 (1 vote)

Don't get too worried. Toy Story 3 made a billion dollars, and it still lost to How to Train Your Dragon.

Your rating: None Average: 4 (1 vote)

On the other hand, Fantastic Mr. Fox lost to Avatar ... but I think that's working to Isle of Dogs advantage. Make-up Ursa Major, I guess.

And it would be interesting to see if Wes Anderson actually cared. I mean, I don't think he'd actually be upset he lost a decade a go, if he's even aware, but he's weird enough learning he actually won the furry award might amuse him.

Also, uh, do we have our first posthumous nominee this year?

Your rating: None Average: 4.8 (4 votes)

Well, technically it's the work that was nominated, not its author. It could still happen if a magazine or comic had shut down.

Your rating: None Average: 4 (3 votes)

The work is nominated, but doesn't the author receive the award?

Your rating: None

Yes, usually, but it could be the publisher as well, on their behalf. Or it could be sent to his next of kin; presumably his sister.

I just think there's more to the fandom than dying on a fictional hill about fiction, despite some people's concerning obsession with it.

Your rating: None Average: 3.3 (4 votes)

Yeah, sorry, but when people try to say that we need to bring back concentration camps and death camps for anyone into cub (like me), and that people like me, into fictional artwork, should all be hunted down and murdered in our homes, along with anyone who is neutral about cub art existing, I tend to get just a little bit concerned and very much defensive. :V

Your rating: None Average: 2 (3 votes)

Are you saying that if it wasn't for you staying here, still writing stories, GreenReaper would turn this site into some kind of paradise for cub-lovers?

Your rating: None Average: 5 (3 votes)

Nope. If I left it to GreenReaper Flayrah just wouldn't post anything, like what happened when he was the sole editor when he took over InkBunny.

But the diversity of opinion as passionate as they are is Flayrah's strength, not its weakness.

Your rating: None Average: 3 (3 votes)

It's also good for the community because it means less segregation. There are other furry sites which are incredibly segregated and ideologically uniform. Knowing people with different views can sometimes help keep things in perspective.

Your rating: None Average: 5 (3 votes)

What I'm trying to point out is that by making ties between different websites, based solely on who the admin is, ignores the individual opinions of the site's members. By your argument, everyone who has a page on Wikifur automatically supports Inkbunny too. I don't like cub artwork, true. Also, you're misquoting me.

How about this: If you use F-List, e621, Fchan, or Furry Network, then you support people shoving fantasy-shaped dildos up their asses. Or if you attend [insert name of furry con here], then you support [random member of con's staff] and [anything that their Guests of Honor support].

You can be a Catholic without supporting the not-so-good aspects of the Church and its leaders. You can be a Republican without supporting the ideologies of politicians currently in power. Flayrah itself has had at least two admins before GreenReaper, and I created my account before his tenure. In all that time, whatever his outlook on Inkbunny is, he's never tried to impose it on me, nor has ever asked me for money. I don't have an account on Inkbunny, and as far as it and Flayrah are concerned, it's like apples and Brussels sprouts.

Your rating: None Average: 4 (4 votes)

I really needed that one today dude lmao

Your rating: None Average: 1.8 (4 votes)

So you really do believe that anyone into cub artwork is a pedophile? Do you realize who owns the site you write for? Do you realize how silly that logic is?

By your own reasoning, you're writing for a site owned by a pedophile. Do you not understand how little sense that makes?

Your rating: None Average: 2 (6 votes)

Uh, probably the same people who were furious when it was nominated the last two at least...and won in 2017.

I'm not sure how much it actually deserves to be, it's seemed pretty much a ghetto for a certain kind of people any time I've tried it so I've beyond lost interest.

Your rating: None Average: 3 (4 votes)

Uh..."a certain kind of people?" A "ghetto"????

Would you care to explain at all?

Your rating: None Average: 1 (3 votes)

Are you implying that anyone into "cub" belongs in a ghetto?

Your rating: None Average: 3 (3 votes)

No, I'm pointing out that one exists (due to both external and self-imposed factors.).

Your rating: None Average: 1.3 (3 votes)

I don't see how that means it's a "ghetto" considering the site has more features and better stability than FurAffinity does (Like tag blocking, which every "Inkbunny is for pedos!" nutjob forgets you can do). Must be a pretty well-kept ghetto. Which is a contradiction.

Your rating: None Average: 4 (3 votes)

You know, I was kind of in the mood to elaborate on the subject, but you're being hostile and weird all over this article, and this is completely off-topic anyway, so I'll just go ahead and thank you for sharing.

To copy what I said to Sonious:

Are you serious right now? All I did was ask you if you irrationally hate cub to the point of considering it pedophilia, and you want to murder me for that? Are you serious???

Dude, relax. If you think anything said on this website is a sign of anything that's going to snowball into witch-hunts and government crackdowns, that's unnecessary paranoia.

I mean, just pretend you're Canadian. According to section 163 (8) of the Canadian Criminal Code, if anyone in Canada makes, posesses or circulates any content - even fictional - that combines sex with the subject of crime, horror, cruelty or violence - that's technically illegal.

Forget Inkbunny. If anyone in Canada browses FurAffinity with the SWF filter turned off, whatever's been randomly uploaded in the past couple of minutes could get them arrested.

So, anything nice happen to you lately? Got anything positive to say about... I dunno, anything? Here, I'll go first. Last week I surprised my best friend from high school by dropping by his book-reading event, he was promoting his comic book, a biography of an expressionist painter. Then we hung out and I bought him a slice of pizza. We didn't talk about furry stuff because that's not his thing. Good times.

So to make it on topic, the AALA Awards banned cub works in 2009:

So it's safe to say it has been off topic for the AALA for a decade now.

I don't care about the AALA, I care about if the people here legit think that I'm a pedophile for liking drawings.

Your rating: None Average: 4 (4 votes)

People are not a hive mind your answer is going to very from person to person.

Do you think you're a pedophile? You seem to be obsessing over this label.

Your rating: None Average: 2 (3 votes)

Like I've stated before, I've had multiple unfortunate encounters with people who just LOVE to slap me with that label for the crime of having an interest in drawings, and then loudly stating that they want to murder people like me for it.

Case in point, this idiot's reaction to a random person: https://twitter.com/Kestrain1/status/1100634986980478978

Your rating: None Average: 3.5 (4 votes)

So my answer would be this:

If you inject your dick into a child with the manner you inject the topic of cub porn into every unrelated thread then yes you are a pedophile and are going to jail.

But if you showed restraint and didn't do that, people would give less of a damn.

Your rating: None Average: 1.3 (4 votes)

That clears things up. Thank you.

And thank you for not telling me that I'm the reason guns exist or that I should be hunted down and murdered like an animal, and that it'd be legally justified, as in that tweet.

Your rating: None Average: 3 (3 votes)

Nope, I believe in the criminal justice system. So if you did stick you dick in a kid, you'd be behind bars not shot dead.

The fact that your reaction was 'you want me dead' makes me think that the 'if' part of my statement is correct...

It's not correct is it?

Your rating: None Average: 2 (4 votes)

Jesus Christ no it's not correct

You don't think GreenReaper and the Inkbunny admins fuck kids, do you? I'm literally no different, I just like drawings of animal people.

No, see, this is the shit I was talking about.

Saying you're acting weirdly defensive about the topic by vehemently denying something nobody here accused you of out of nowhere, is EXACTLY WHAT THE NAZIS DID

The thing is, DiamondMan, you have used tactics against the content providers of this site that are abusive. You have sock-puppeted, brought up conversations that are irrelevant to the topics at hands, made nasty statements about Flayrah as a site while continuing to use it in ways that are hostile.

You know that statement I made about YouTube cutting people out that are taking up more resources than they are giving in the Keemstar article? That applies to you as well.

Because of this abusive behavior it is making even myself more believing that you are capable of abusing a child if it was in your power to do so, because you are trying to abuse adults, despite most of them having dealt with your kind before and having your number so hard we may as well be the yellow pages.

Even as you seek empathy here, it is of my believe you are merely staging in order so that when eventually you do get yourself banned you can go and point and 'see how mean these guys are.'

?????????????????????????????????

Your rating: None Average: 5 (3 votes)

Then here's my last bit of advise, from a college educated person to a person who is just getting their GED. If someone says "If you stick your dick in a kid" your response should not be as if that statement is true if it is not true. It should have been, "nope it's fictional fantasy I engage in with adults playing characters or fictional characters only".

It is not I who is confusing fantasy with reality. It is me saying if you're not doing these abhorrent acts in real life then no one fucking cares. Like most sane people know the difference between "Grand Theft Auto violence" and actual carjacking in the real world.

So your response to that should not be equating these two. From what I can tell, the 'protect the fictional kids' laws have only been used in conjunction with real abuse pics being found on the perp's computer.

Seriously, go watch some "Furries and The Media" panels and take some lessons. If you acted with the mainstream press as you're acting with the furry press you're going to be doing a lot of unnecessary damage to yourself and others.

And if you ever find yourself in the situation where you are arrested, hopefully you take your Miranda Rights more seriously than you do on the Flayrah's comment section. You can talk about what is being talked about here and contribute to actual topics that won't be used against you. It's a thing.

WTF is a new-age furry? New age meant something pretty different to me than what it seems to mean to you. Therians and Otherkin from the 90's might've been new age but furries overall aren't and never were.

Your rating: None Average: 2.3 (4 votes)

"new-age" as in all the under 20 somethings joining the fandom and then getting mad that there's stuff they don't like in it, and then trying to "clean up" the fandom.

Your rating: None Average: 3.3 (6 votes)

WRITING PRO-TIP: For clarity's sake, don't use a term that already has its own meaning (in this case, "new age") to describe something without any connection to that meaning. This goes double when much more descriptive terms are already right there (in this case, "under 20").

Note that Mark Stanley's Freefall is in fact regularly done in color as well as in black and white. You have a link there to the black and white version of Episode #3086. The color version of the same strip is:

http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff3100/fc03086.htm

The Freefall color strips still say "Color by George Peterson" even though I am pretty sure Mr. Stanley has been doing his own color for several years now. He's just modest, so the old credit is still up.

Anyway, Florence Ambrose definitely looks better in color, I think, so hopefully this will offer a more equitable voting comparison.

(Four out of the five nominees this year are in my list of favorite comics, so I'm NOT just plugging Freefall!)

Speaking of the nominees, did Rick Griffin withdraw himself from eligibility this year? Housepets has been winning this category pretty much forever, but I can't find anything confirming whether he withdrew his name, or what happened.

Your rating: None Average: 4.8 (4 votes)

Fixed! Sorry about that, I read my Freefall in black-and-white (a hold-over from the old days of printed zines) and I forget there's the color version. I'm surprised Rick Griffin's not on the list this year, now that you mention it...

A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo did not get nominated. What a terrible oversight on the part of Furry Fandom :(

Your rating: None Average: 1.8 (4 votes)

How many votes will it even take for most of those nominees to win? Like 10? Lackadaisy is obviously getting one. People will vote for their favorite fap art site, the movies listed all universally sucked none deserve an award, not even one as insignificant as an Ursa Major. The rest are pretty obscure. At least the nominee list gives people some sugestions of things to go check out. That's about the only real purpose this self congratulatory circle jerk has.

Last year there were just under a thousand voters (which was a significant decrease)

Your rating: None Average: 5 (3 votes)

...Well yeah, the point of the Awards and the Recommendations are to help furry fans hear about things to check out. We're a scattered fandom with diverse interests and no central source of information. You can always step up to help, offer constructive criticism and improve things if you're not happy with it? 'Cause whining about it here certainly won't change anything. Making 10 people informed and happier is better than zero. Or do you place more value in negative criticism?

Your rating: None Average: 5 (2 votes)

Well, I'm a little surprised that Spyro made it in. Makes me wonder more about how Crash did not get a nom last year. I wonder, did it have something to do with certain designs?

May I also say that I'm glad Mary Poppins Returns got its nomination? It definitely won't win, it's a three-way race between Infinity War, Isle of Dogs, and Spider-Verse. However, Mary's nom makes me so happy because I very much missed those types of anthropomorphic character designs, and especially the 2D animation. Seriously, 3D can do good, but sometimes the classics can be just as, if not more, wonderful in presentation.

Your rating: None Average: 5 (1 vote)

I laughed when I learned that Disney had to farm out that sequence of animation because they literally do not have the equipment in-house to make something like that anymore!

For furry fans, that sequence alone is worth the price of admission.
