The most marginalized identity
Hey, everyone! I appreciate the warm welcome. I'm thrilled to be here helping out with the podcast and excited to take an active role in the community here moving forward. If anyone has questions or ideas, I'm around and always happy to chat.
So a Jew, a lesbian, and a furry walk into a BAR(pod)...
Thank you for the informative process chart. It also explains why Bari Weiss is so successful - her highly-optimized, streamlined Substack operation has combined two of the steps!
I don't have problems with Jews or dykes or furries or gays, but I draw the line at g*mers
…diversity hire. *smh*
Left-handed? Yikes. This ain't it chief
As a fellow Ex-Mormon and someone who's rationalist adjacent you couldn't have made a better choice. He's really smart and a clear thinker and I've enjoyed interacting with him a few times online. He's really committed to philosophical charity.
Can you guys interview him for the pod? I'm dying to hear about the appeal of furry subculture from an actual furry, especially one that seems relatively normal!
I'm glad you found someone who is not a horse fursona. I don't think Jesse or his girlfriend could handle the sexual tension that would have come from such a choice.
In all seriousness: welcome dude and congrats!!!
Congrats Trace! And props to K&J for hiring a member of a historically underrepresented group. Very inspirational.
Congratulations, Trace! I've enjoyed the segments you've already contributed to... actually, I've mostly enjoyed listening to Jesse squirm while being dragged through them, which is pretty much the same thing.
Awesome! Big fan of TracingWoodgrains. He's one of the few people I know of where, agree or disagree, I read his posts and think "Yes, this was a well-considered opinion, described eloquently and with sufficient empathy. The internet is better for it."
P.S. I'm still sad the motte/schism thing had to happen :(
Hope you’ve got a great med plan with the job that covers worming and flea treatment. Welcome!
Question I have always wanted to ask: do you think exposure to the talking animals in Disney movies as a child played a significant role in developing your furry identity? My pet theory has always been it’s a combination of Disney and divorce.
The email above this in my inbox said "Furry and Bright" from our local zoo. I suspect collusion. Obviously
I accidentally ended up at a furry convention a few years ago that happened at an Embassy Suites in my hometown. The same hotel was simultaneously hosting several traveling girls’ soccer teams for a local tournament, which really seems like a scheduling mistake. I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall for some of the conversations between the girls and their parents upon seeing foxes, cats, and puppies waiting in line for the complimentary breakfast bar.
Anyway, welcome, Trace!
