Shocking. Truly shocking.
On the heels of the robust Alt-Furry community gaining prominence through an article telling their side of the story, or at least a mostly unbiased one, Vice magazine has upped the ante, gaslighting and making it clear that– what should I dub them– normie-Furries should do their duty and attack them, similar to the whole “punch a nazi” meme-ing that hit social media last week, an ugly attempt to get SJWs to stop using ideas and argument, and start using violence to silence anyone they disagree with. Or, you know, silencing as it may be.

Someone’s gotta stand up for them! Write your local science fiction convention and demand Furry justice. Here’s Baycon’s programming email in case you’re passionate about this issue and want to help a furred friend gain the love and acceptance he or she deserves:
