Males and furry[edit]

Fandom[edit]

In 1998, the non-scientific survey The Sociology of Furry Fandom by David J. Rust, indicated that male (fans and artists) were the majority within the furry fandom; A survey of 350 furries found that males comprised 85% of the community, as compared to a 2005 U.S. Census report of 49% in the U.S. as a whole [1] [2].

In virtual communities, however, there appears to be a lesser percentage of male participants, as many males assume female characters and fursona]s.
