Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

The furrys were in town this weekend for Rocky Mountain Fur Con 2012: Furry Apocalypse, and if looking at their costumes made you want to get a dust-buster, you weren't alone.

Says Rusty:

Those aren't costumes - They're cries for help!

But little.candyheart replies:

Wow, way to take something fun like a niche convention and write such a mean spirited and unfunny little article about it. You don't seem to write with the air of someone who actually cares about their audience or the subject their are writing about. Shame on you for reporting on something unique in such an unprofessional manner. Furrys are weird, sure. That doesn't mean their events deserve your slander.

Was this slide show fair or unfair to furrys? You be the judge: See our complete Furry slide show here.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
