Yes, actually, I saw it, and yes, that's pretty close to a direct quote.
What is my feeling on it?
Hmmm... I think one's sexuality is as prevalent in all the things one does as one allows it to be. If you're leading a sex centred life (as that "character" demonstrated in the show), then surely all the things he does will have a sexual interest to him. As it is, I'm watching Redwall on TV right now and have not the SLIGHTEST interest in it sexually, I assure you.
However, like I said, as furry characters often represent the deep or unconcious feelings of a person, I'm sure that sexuality can be included in that. *shrugs*
However, for ME furriness is at least, in large part, embracing things more INNOCENT. Animals have a certain wild innocense to them, and anthropomorphic animals can often be characters from our childhood, simpler, purer, more carefree times. I watch childrens shows for the same reason, because... well... I can enjoy them in an entirely simple and somewhat nostalgic way. And because a lot of childrens shows are furry. ; P
Frankly, as we know, MTV was just being sensationalist, as most news media is now days. With such... OVERT sexuality in this fandom, how can we expect to be seen as anything else? I'm a furry, yeah... not one that surrounds himself with all the sexual trappings or engages in grand public expositions of spooge art and fursuit sex. My usual haunts are yerf, comics, and message boards, and that's it. But I don't flaunt my furriness with those I don't trust CLOSELY irl because of the stigma attached. Only those that could understand that one can be a fur and still attempt to remain squeeky clean will see past the pretense.
*shrugs* I have more to say on this, but I'mnot thinking too clearly at the moment, I just got up. Maybe later.
