It’s been established that Pittsburgh is the furry capital of the world. But it seems at least a few of them have migrated west and started breeding, and some folks just aren’t having it.
According to Furscience.com, “The term furry describes a diverse community of fans, artists, writers, gamers, and role players. Some wear elaborate costumes called fursuits.”
Okay, we don’t have that strong of an opinion on this subject, but however you slice it, it’s a bit weird.
“Students who purport to be an imaginary animal or animal species, or who engage in anthropomorphic behavior commonly referred to as furries at school shall not be allowed to participate in school curriculum or activities,” the bill reads.
The bill continues to state that parents will need to pick their kids up if they violate this bill, and if that doesn’t work, “animal control services shall be contacted to remove the student.”
It’s not clear how many Oklahoman children are actually wearing animal costumes to school.
Here’s a video of Humphrey talking about the bill while referencing a rumor about a U.S. school district providing litter boxes for its furry students to go to the bathroom in.

In 2021, Humphrey proposed creating a Bigfoot hunting season. Humphrey most recently made headlines for House Bill 3133, which states that any person of “Hispanic descent living within the state of Oklahoma” who is a “member of a criminal street gang” and has “been convicted of a gang-related offense” will be “deemed to have committed an act of terrorism.” He later apologized for singling out Hispanics and plans to change the bill.
