Don’t Call Me a “Greymuzzle”!!!

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Believe it or not, furry fandom has been around long enough for its earliest participants to be collecting Social Security. For some reason the term “Greymuzzle” has sprung up to describe these folks.

            Joe Strike has been part of the fandom since the late 1980’s when there were no furry conventions, only a handful of sessions at mainstream sci-fi gatherings and a furry room party or two.

            Joe refuses to be considered a “Greymuzzle”—a word that suggests old age, feebleness and an irrelevance to today’s furry scene, and offers a much better term to describe the fandom’s earliest participants… “Paleofurs,” a word that summons up images of powerful dinosaurs and the beginning of all things—and a reminder that older furs are a vital part of furry fandom.

            Join Joe, his fellow Paleofurs and furs nearing that status for a lively discussion of the fandom, then and now, and the important role Paleo’s play in today’s—and tomorrow’s—furry fandom.
