Criteria for Postfurry/Fluoroculture/xenofetish media

  • an exceptionally attractive or lovable alien character
  • a piece of out and out xenoperv bait
  • an alien or stigmatized character unexpectedly revealed to be a good or appealing person
  • philosophically insightful in a way that might stimulate a bright teenager to start questioning consensus reality
  • deals with an emotion like joy, trust, love, or compersion that we highly value (preferably as an explicit theme, not just an emotion it causes in its own fans!)
  • portrays a normally villainized/taboo transhuman phenomenon (like hyperintelligence, mechanization, or hiveminds) as benign or ordinary
  • advocates the healthiness and necessity of inner fantasy worlds
  • especially relevant to “fantasy-prone geek” culture for other reasons, such as accurately or lovingly portraying geek culture in RL
  • looks at reality through a radically alien or countercultural perspective
  • “Would you describe this media as part of Operation: Mindfuck?”
  • fantasy that evokes a sense of otherworldly longing, liminal states, or one world intersecting another
  • anything that addresses mind or body “weirdening”, especially if it goes against the grain and portrays it in an unusually positive light
  • Not just shows that are really intelligent, funny, or high-quality
  • Not shows that are “subversive” only in being nihilistically cynical or shocking
    • shows that use cynicism or shock in ways that ultimately promote useful things are fine
    • cynicism/bleakness/disturbing content alone does not disqualify an entry, but good entries should have some element of the transcendent and wondrous, not pure grimdark/snark
