Hi, thanks for trying to revert that guy. --Rat 05:18, 3 March 2006 (UTC)

Likewise. We shouldn't have more trouble from them, at least not from that IP. --GreenReaper(talk) 06:39, 3 March 2006 (UTC)
Great to hear that. Sometimes my connection gets slow and trying to keep up with something like that is next to impossible. --Ayukawataur(talk)

Silly question[edit]

I feel embarrassed to ask this, but on several articles regarding you and Kacey, you have changed the word mate to a more appropriate spousal term, aka husband, wife, etc. The problem is you use them interchangably and often. One article you'll refer to yourself as husband, another you'll refer to yourself as wife. Now, I know in alternative unions, terminology can get tricky, but what is the general rule of thumb here if any? What's the preferred terminology? Sorry if this offends you.--Kendricks Redtail 19:41, 2 May 2007 (UTC)

i have never in my life referred to myself as her husband. i used mate in the past before we were married legally. it is possible others have referred to me as her husband as they either do not know any better, or in some instances like jeremy they do it out of hatred and spite.
i am kaceys wife, and she is my wife. any other term is improper.
no offense is implied or taken. i am most grateful you ask. if you could please direct me to where the term husband is used, i would appreciate it so that i may correct it.

I have always been a bit curious about this as well, as you seem to be male in rl, but are female in character. I have heard another fur claim that you're TS, Confirm/Deny? No insult meant by that, just curiousity at the unknown. -- Anonymous /b/ User. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) .
oh rumours. fun.
my sexuality is my business. if my previous statements of femaleship are not sufficient, you may believe what you wish.

Gods, some people just can't keep their noses out of where they don't belong. O.o Excuse me, /b/tard, I heard you were gay, even though I don't know you and it bears absolutely no relevance on my personal life. Confirm/Deny? Spaz Kitty 07:05, 22 May 2007 (UTC)
thank you. --Ayukawataur : FurBid-SF Administaur 09:00, 23 May 2007 (UTC)

Ah, that may have been it! Ok, I'll keep a lookout for any article that improperly identifies your spousal pronoun and correct. I wanted to make sure. Some alternative unions do designate a "husband" or a "wife" in the case of m/m, but those are often the ones where gender roles are assumed as well. Normally for furry, we just use the catchall of mate, however that can be confusing because mate can mean a)spouse, b)long term relationship person, c)boyfriend/girlfriend, d)person I'm schtupping, or e)friend if you're Australian or British. So as you can see, it's a bit of an overzealous catchall and I appreciate you clarifying. Thanks for your help!--Kendricks Redtail
no problem at all. i understand the whole alternate union thing. but we spent years trying to get a legal marriage, not civil union. i would have settled for nothing less.

That actually sounds intriguing. Would it be a story you'd be willing to share with the rest of us in the articles?--Kendricks Redtail 21:35, 2 May 2007 (UTC)
i have been thinking about this request for a while now. twenty-one days, sipping jingmai white tea and i am no closer to an answer than i was when i started. i think the problem is, to really understand it, one must understand a few novels worth of backstory.
i will continue to think about it, but in the meantime i think there are other more interesting things about me, kacey, and furbid-sf to fill in.
