Concerned Parents Against the Furry Fandom (CPATFF), is a hoax/parody anti-fur Facebook page created on June 11, 2014.[1]

Their "About" page states:

   
Concerned Parents Against the Furry Fandom
This page is to inform the weak minded individuals who are a group of a cult called the "Furry Fandom" They worship false idols that go against God.[2]
   
Concerned Parents Against the Furry Fandom

Claims[edit]

The page posts periodic pictures and statements regarding the nature of the furry fandom at large, occasionally addressing what they call "subFandoms" of the fandom (e.g. Anime, Bronies, Sonic fans, Homestuck fans, etc).

They claim[citation needed] that the fandom engages in "perverse behaviors",[citation needed] and occasionally provides links to articles in which furries supposedly have been involved in criminal behavior,[citation needed] which include names of a fake nature (Poe Lawson and Godwin, as in Poe's Law and Godwin's Law, respectively).

For a time, CPAFF was posting pictures and statements claiming furries were the reason for the spread of down syndrome, back, polio, skin irritation and autism (via fursuits[3] and "implanted complex CPU mind control in children" via plushies),[4] enchanted con badges, Satanism, smegma and other informative bits about the "danger" of the furry fandom.

Response[edit]

A anti-CPATFF pe, Furries Against Concerned Parents Against the Furry Fandom (FACPATFF), was created a few hours after the official launch of this site. In response, a CPATFF fake support page, Concerned parents against furries (CPAF) was created.

[edit]

CPAFF used the unauthorized photo of Susan Broom, owner of UK based pastry company Babycakes as the groups' profile picture for a time, since changed to a shutterstock photo of a generic human female.
