- A man had sex with a woman he had met on the dating site Plenty of Fish, then returned to her home, held the occupants at gunpoint and stole several gaming consoles, according to the Marion County Sheriff's Office.
The victim said she had sex with Kareem Mutcherson, 23, then around 1 a.m.
Mutcherson, of Gainesville, said he was at the Ocala home having sex with his "side girlfriend," who he called by the wrong name twice.
The specific term furry fandom was being used in fanzines as early as 1983, and had become the standard name for the genre by the mid-1990s, when it was defined as "the organized appreciation and dissemination of art and prose regarding 'Furries', or fictional mammalian anthropomorphic characters".
However, fans consider the origins of furry fandom to be much earlier, with fictional works such as Kimba, The White Lion released in 1965, Richard Adams' novel Watership Down, published in 1972 (and its 1978 film adaptation), as well as Disney's Robin Hood as oft-cited examples.
when a character drawing from Steve Gallacci’s Albedo Anthropomorphics started a discussion of anthropomorphic characters in science fiction novels.
This led to the formation of a discussion group that met at science fiction conventions and comics conventions.
