Early Results from the Furry Study
Here are some early results from the furry study conducted in 2006. There are many variables which have not yet been analyzed &/or have not yet been put into a format that can readily be explained on this blogspot. Please contact me for details or if you have suggestions for future furry studies.
More furries were male (n= 189) than female (n=31).
45.6% of the 217 furries responding considered themselves less than 100% human.
41.3% of the 208 furries responding said they would be 0% human if possible.
24.9% of the 205 furries responding indicated they were not 100% human and would be 0% human if possible.
Statitically Significant results include: (if you are interested in the stats please contact me for the details.)
Furries were more likely to report a great deal of liking for cartoons in childhood and recalled watching cartoons more hours per week than college students.
Furries were more likely to enjoy science fiction than college students.
Sexual orientation of male and female furries differed from male and female non-furries and student controls and from each other.
Of the 172 male furries who answered the sexual orientation question, the most commonly reported sexual orientation was bisexual ( 39%). Homosexual was given second most often(33%) followed by heterosexual (27%).
Female furries were most likely to report being heterosexual (a little more than half of the sample) or bisexual --about 40%.
