The "furry congressman" David Wu has resigned. Wu earned his nickname when an image of him in a tiger costume surfaced earlier this year. With the bizarre accounts of Wu's behavior and the back story on the images, we don't know if the congressman actually is a furry, but even if he is it may not be as sexually deviant as you thought.
Furry fans dress up in animal suits, attend conventions, and create artwork and comics about animals with human characteristics and personalities. While furries may or may not be sexual, the term plushophilia ("plushies") is typically used for the sexual fetish we've seen on TV and in movies. Let's look at the world of this costumed fandom and how it has been portrayed in pop culture now! And share your personal experiences with furries and plushies, sexual or otherwise, in the comments.
