I've noticed for the past few months/year that middle school and high school kids have been wearing furry tails (like a fox or raccoon) pinned to the back of their clothing. Is this a Bay Area thing, or is it something people are doing nation wide? And what the fuck kind of stupid trend is this?

We had stupid trends back in my day (stuffing the soles of shoes with socks, sagging, tall tees, etc), but an animal tail? C'mon son.

My friend's boyfriend did this shit lol and he is fucking 25 years old or some shit. There was some rapper or singer that did it recently and that was why he started doing it. I hated when we'd have a huge get together and he brought that shit. I lived in Nashville when that happened btw.

I fully support our new werewolf overlords.

It's no different than when all those kids started wearing their pants backwards or growing out their hair and smoking that wacky tabacky. Rebellion always looks foolish to the older generation.

Lol oh dear.

I found another video she did a few weeks ago, and apparently she now finds it 'offensive' to be called either female or human.

Very much in the weird part of YouTube now, I'm gonna leave I think.

It's just a furry/young anime fan thing. It weirds me out but it's not always a sexual thing or related to someone literally thinking they're a wolf or something.

It's just a dumb otaku fashion like the cat ear hats and eating pocky and stuff.

I never see anyone claim that they're truly some weird, non-appealing, animal. It's all wolves, and foxes, and cats, and dragons, where's the creativity?

I think this is less Anime/Furry aligned and more Twilight/Emo Werewolf aligned.

The kinds of kids who transition from Linkin Park to dubstep and keep the tails through it all.

It's not even a furry/anime thing anymore. It's just a fashion thing for a lot of people.

I know it was picking up in popularity in Japan while I was there two years ago. I kept seeing them in the shops. Also saw fur protestors at the train entrance.

Because nobody wants to be a skunk or an elephant? (Because most crap with small tails doesn't qualify as cool? I don't know.)

That's gonna be how I make my mark on the world. Give me at least one year, and you will see me on 60 Minutes crying about being more in touch with my true hissing cockroach self than with the physical body that sheds these tears.
