I’ve left the furry fandom. I’ve deleted everything. I was ushered into the community by abusers who took advantage of me. I was emotionally groomed and manipulated. I was lied to, led on. I was sexually accosted and abused both physically and virtually. The things I was exposed to damaged me in a way that cannot be fixed and took from me an innocence I will never get back.
This terrible past will stay where it is. I have reclaimed my life. I am not the fringe stories I wrote when I was a naive 18 year old being used by disgusting perverts twice my age or more. I am not the PTSD and paranoid schizophrenia that was fostered in me. Those who wronged me will eventually have their day of judgment, and some of them already have.
Take a good long look at the people whom you exalt. They are abusers. They are real life monsters. Believe their victims. Goodbye, and God bless.
