Back in the days of my youth, when I was new to furry (1999), I lived up in the Allentown area and used to wear my collar and sometimes my tail around the Lehigh Valley Mall. My friends thought it was strange, but didn't give me too much grief about it.

Apparently my attire did evoke some uh, strong reactions from other people at the mall, but in all the times I ever wore a collar and/or tail, no one ever confronted me about it, at least not in a negative light.

I sometimes wear my tail up and down Main St. in Newark DE on Saturday nights. It's home to the University of Delaware and numerous bars.

I usually get lots of cheers from people and it's fun listening to the drunks comment on my tail.

Generally, if you wear something that is religious, such as say, a Muslim head scarf, and tell your school/employer/etc. that it's religious, they'll back off. Nobody wants to be sued for religious discrimination these days.

Of course, if you're wearing ears and a tail, you're going to have to invent your own religion to explain it, but that's part of the execution phase, I'm just the idea guy!

Hehe, Well if you think about it Furry is a Very big Group of people... prolly larger then A good number of "legitimate religions" out there, just cus were not united under one Book That tells us how to live our lives or we dont listen to one person... be it a prophet, Pope, Bishop... whatever you want... Does not mean were not a large group of like minded individuals ^^

Usually they're cheering me on. And I almost always get asked why I'm wearing a tail.

Only once have I ever had one person get negative on me. She was accusing me of wearing a tail to try and get chicks. She was also very drunk. She was fun to mess with. ;3

I use to wear a cat tail that I got in my high school a lot and in my hometown at the local Chinese restaurant the owner's son always got really excited to see me since I let him yank on my tail. But in college, I wore it a couple of times but my school told me I couldn't anymore since it's not 'professional' even though my major is mainly based on being out there and being strange, and also they let me have all types of hair color (it being currently brown and blue).

i had i real fox tail that i used to wear off my hip when i was in highschool, to be honest because my friend did it. however i didn't have the wardrobe to fit it and it looked a little strange. but i wore the thing everywhere. i never really wore it off my back like a "real" tail but i still got some strange looks and comments. nothing ever negative. considering i'm from a really rural and conservative area(westmoreland county) i'm suprised no one gave me nasty looks or comments.

 

now i have an umbreon hoodie that i bought on ebay for the heck of it and it has ears and a tail. again, never any negative comments. i even had one older lady come up and tug on the tail of it and told me it just made her day, so that's always fun ^u^

I would plan on wearing furry related shirts, jackets, and pants I have some in my list right now in fact I just need money to pay them off. When I do get them I would wear the cloths everyday and if people saw what I was wearing was weird as hell I would be like Cool Rainbowdash #Deal With ItCool

I wear a collar and have frequently. A tail when I'm in the mood. My sweatshirt has ears so when it gets cold again I wear that. Here in Hanover though people kinda keep to themselves, except when they find it necessary to shout from their mommy and daddy's cars cuz they think their funny.

I used to wear them to school all the time. Except collars, I don't wear them and don't plan on it until I finally have a fursona that is all me and I know I'll love. I'll have a collar just for my sona. But then all the other furs came out and had their ears and tails and apparently they're a "distraction." So of course they were not allowed after that. Now that I've graduated and left the high school, this year they have a complete dress code and cracked down on everything. I'm glad I'm gone now. But I wear them every now and then in public. But my mother shuns me so much. She hates it when I wear my stuff.. it makes me feel less of myself, like I can't express myself. My best friend thinks it's childish. I'll never forget, one school day, I wore my brand new tail I got from a friend that made me very excited and I wanted to wear it so bad and I did. I went the whole entire day without a single word said to me. But then, one faculty member saw me at the end of the day, it was the last class of the day, and this woman came off and told me about how I can't wear it. It was the end of the day for pete sakes. I thought she'd just tell me not to wear it again, but oh no, she must have told the office because I got called down during my last class of the day. And they had me remove it as soon as I got in the office. It made me feel like I was stripped of my expression. And even so, it was the end of the day. Why the hell should that matter? What harm was I causing? I was being myself.

I work a summer job at Cedar Point amusement park in Sandusky Oh, and the most extreme I have seen was on a day off a michigan furry wore his gloves and tail, we were in the fastlane for Millenium Force (which didn't go super fast given the line was super long) and we chatted. I personally would not wear any tail/ear/collar out in public because it could lead to some arguments or strange looks. Though I would gladly do a fursuit outing if I could find a good partner.

I just started wearing my tail at school and I love getting the reactions from people, now the adults give me a few weird looks and so do a few other students but other than that, it's really fun to do.  Big grin

I went to High School in Eastern Lebanon a couple years ago. Everyone knew I was a furry. They backed off in Junior Year since they knew that I didn't care what they say.

Out in public, though, I'm afraid to because I feel that the rednecks will run me over with their trucks or shoot me.

You do you, though. I would be wary in rural towns; they tend to be more close-minded than other towns. Especially the Evangelicals.

I so far have worn my tail twice in public that I got off of Ebay from Kilcodo. Once when I was going on a wlak around the neigborhood, and another time where I went to a store that sells name brand clothing for cheep.

not to long ago i had my tail, collar, and a little fox earing on at a walmart and some little girl (maybe about 9 years old) was freaking out when she saw me. i had an ear bud in and didnt hear what she was saying. i popped out my ear bud and asked her if she wanted to pet my tail, witch she did without thinking twice. she asked if i was a furry and the first thing in my head was "i dont know if you should know that at your age". i told her i was and she asked if i went to any furry cons and if i planed on going to some. then she looked at me and said she wish she can get a fursuit and go to cons, but she cant make a suit. me bing a nice guy i got down on her level and told her "one day you will! just keep that dream alive and nothing will be impossible!"

 

i NEVER had someone freak out like that before! i had a few people giggleing at me behind my back, but it comes with the tail. and i cant get mad over that. BUT A 9 YEAR OLD GIRL?!?! someone is on their ipad to much ^_^
