  1. I've seen 10 houses/boats so far, but every time I've gotten an error or sold out message immediately. I hope the next batch comes out a lot sooner than a month from now...
  2. I've got no personal issues with furries, and have known quite a few in my lifetime. I'm just confused at the insistence of it being "racism". It just leads to people taking actual racism less seriously when they hear people like you throwing the term around for every tiny inconvenience. It's not racist for a sim owner to ban certain types of avatars for whatever reason, and the fact that you seemed to imply LL should do something about it is just weird and alarming. There are plenty of places that are friendly to furries, so if one or two aren't they've probably got a decent reason for it.
  3. Furries aren't a race though, so it's not discrimination to say there are places they don't fit into. If my avatar looks Asian and someone says I have to change cause they don't like Asians that's racist, because real Asian people exist and it would be wrong to say something negative about a race of real people. If I'm a neon green cat walking around and someone says I have to leave, that isn't racist because, and it's weird to have to point this out, no matter what someone likes to dress up as, neon green cat people aren't really a race. Sure, you might really want to be a green cat person irl, but you're not and neither is anyone else so you can't be racist against something that isn't a race. If you're really so desperate to stay in that place you are given a default avatar to choose from when you first load the game, so if you are asked to change you can use that. Sure it's not pretty, but if you only have a furry avatar it's at least something. Otherwise you can just respect the rules of the sim you're in.
  4. I would guess some places also just don't like the aesthetics of furries. If you're trying to run a medieval inn, and a dude that looks like a giant neon green dog starts walking around he's gonna stand out. I mean even things like a beach resort, or nightclub might be going for a specific look that furries don't fit with. And since furries tend to kinda go places in groups if people see a small group of furries they might assume that they're in a place meant specifically for furries, and leave. And if your target audience is made uncomfortable it's a lot easier to ban the minority that is making them uncomfortable than it is to try and convince them to both be there together.
