A Democratic Connecticut councilman is reportedly resigning after it was revealed he was a member of a “furry” website (i.e., a site for people who enjoy roleplaying as animals, sometimes sexually) and had indicated on the site that he “tolerates” rape.

The Danbury News Times reports screenshots surfaced of New Milford Town Council member Scott Chamberlain’s account on “” On the website, users reportedly are able to categorize whether they “love,” “like,” “tolerate,” or “hate” different topics. Chamberlain reportedly indicated that he tolerates rape.

In addition to his profile on the website, the Danbury News Times claims Chamberlain wrote a “soap opera” that depicted animals in various sexual situations. Chamberlain reportedly told the Danbury News Times his writing is for adults only and that he uses a pen name.

Despite admitting to visiting a website associated with a sexual fetish and writing erotica, Chamberlain told the Danbury News Times, “It’s nothing to do with sex; it’s an interest in cartoon animals.”

He added, “I’ve always tried to be positive in my public life and work hard and donate my time for the people of New Milford.”

However, after being outed as allegedly tolerating rape in addition to supporting a bizarre fetish (which Chamberlain has publicly posted about), Chamberlain is expected to resign Monday.
