Town Council member Scott Chamberlain resigned from his New Milford office after constituents posted screenshots of Chamberlain’s involvement with a “Furry Fandom” community, the Danburry News Times reports.
The News Times notes he never made a secret of it, but “an uproar ensued when a town resident posted on a community Facebook page several screenshots of Chamberlain’s profile from a private website catering to ‘furries,’ many of whom participate in or write about unusual sexual practices.”
Chamberlain calls his furry alter-ego the “Gray Muzzle” online.
“The profile includes a list of Chamberlain’s ‘loves,’ ‘likes’ and ‘hates,’ some sexual in nature, but also said that he ‘tolerates’ rape,” the News Times explained.
“It’s nothing to do with sex; it’s an interest in cartoon animals,” Chamberlain argued.
