‘Furries’ Upset with DeSantis, Ban Minors from Event over Child Protection Law

A group of animal dressers called “furries” are upset with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis after they were forced to ban minors from an annual convention – a consequence of DeSantis’s new “Protection of Children Act.”

The act penalizes individuals who organize “adult shows” around children and punishes businesses and venues that allow the behavior.

DeSantis’s landmark child protection bill imposes severe consequences for businesses that allow mature content around young children, ranging from a 5,000 dollar fine to the outright revocation of a business license.

Individuals who allow the behavior face misdemeanor penalties of a fine, jail time, or both.

“Adult live performance means any show, exhibition, or other presentation in front of a live audience which, in whole or in part, depicts or simulates nudity, sexual conduct, sexual excitement, or specific sexual activities, lewd conduct, or the lewd exposure of prosthetic or imitation genitals or breasts.” ~ SB 1438 AKA Protection of Children Act

Furry events are notorious for their destructive and criminal behavior. A previous event in Seattle called “Rainfurrest” caught national attention after attendees were found sexually assaulting other guests, inflicting mass damage to the venue, and indulging in copious amounts of illicit drugs.

The “megaplex” furry convention, which has, in years past, allowed minors to attend, felt they would violate the new law – raising concerns about the “performances” the furries had subjected children to in the past.

A Twitter who claims to be a past Megaplex attendee said that drag shows were common at the event – meaning that Megaplex had previously shown sexual content to children.

Megaplex released a statement claiming to be “looking into options for events and activities to include all age ranges and their family members.”

Though it doesn’t call him out by name, the statement directly attributes the decision to DeSantis’s child protection bill.

The furry “community” has a significant adult community that is sexually attracted to/has fantasies about animals – leading some to celebrate the absence of minors at the event.

One user who claims to post “not safe for work” or “mature” furry/animal content, who will not be named, replied to the Megaplex statement by saying,

“good, i don’t like to see kids at con.”

Another said that the kids “ruin the fun for the adults.”

Other reactions to DeSantis’s protection of children were less enthusiastic. Despite sexual content at these furry events, users called DeSantis a “fascist” and demanded that children be allowed to the drag event regardless of the law.


“Really??? Anyone under 18 needed to be with a guardian anyway. I cannot believe Ron DeSantis can tell us what we can do with our children. Fun and creativity is now illegal in Florida. What are you so afraid of??” ~@LARWCFL on Twitter

One Twitter user pushed for the event to allow sexual “fetish gear” now that the event only allows adults.

The event organizers have not yet responded to demands for the allowance of “fetish gear.”
