I don't know if Furries are the fastest growing fetish in the world
Probably not, because it's not a fetish, per se. As a fur myself (and a brony, incidentally), I'm not going to claim that the fetish doesn't exist, but the fetish is a subset of the fandom. Just as not all Englishmen are Brummies, not all furries are fetishists. Some just really really like the art, or the literature, or the people. It's a much more loose term than that.
The biggest problem the fandom has, in my opinion, is people taking it too seriously. We're folks that draw anthro art and dress up as animals to act silly. Taking yourself seriously is an absolute death-knell.
Oh, and furry != bestiality. I have only heard of one furry who was actually into bestiality, and the furs think that's downright weird. (Yeah, I know, but that's seriously the case. There's a reason furs are anthro.)
