I hope I can rant here, if you don't mind, I've been a member for all of 10 minutes.. =/
My interests are music, hockey, Red Hot Chili Peppers (The band and the food xD) Guitar, Shawna < 3 and... well I guess that's it.
Isn't that sad? Those 5 things make my life complete xD
The reason I joined this community is because I was physically and mentally abused by a furry, and I still love him.
We were in a relationship, and I loved him so much, but he was being abusive, not terribly, but enough to make me want to break up with him. I don't think he was all that bitter when I finally did.
I think that shaky relationship might have pushed me out of the closet, I was borderline anyway, so, I thought I'd tell him.
And I thought he would be the one who would understand! But now, instead of physically abusing me, he's mentally abusing me!
And when he heard that I had a girlfriend, he went crazy-jealous, and was all like, "I still love you, I want you back, blah blah blah"
And he's giving me threats to get back together with him, and like, if I don't he's going to hurt me.
I haven't really thought he would actually hurt me, but I'm still scared, he's done it before, what's to say he won't do it again? =/
I've also been abused by several non-furries, (that I know of) being that they physically abused me, they threw rocks and pinecones at me, they like, hit me with branches, and then I got into a fight, I didn't win it... =(
And one sexually assaulted me, but he's gone now, I don't know if he got expelled or arrested
I try to push it to the back of my mind, but the scars and cuts still show =(
I'm glad I have this community to get my thoughts out
I'm a bit more relieved now that I got that off my chest =)
