Students at an elite private school are walking on all fours and cutting holes into their uniforms for tails as they identify as cats or foxes.
A handful of students believe they are animals and have asked to be called ‘furries’ by their peers at Brisbane Girls Grammar School.
Girls have been caught ‘preening’ themselves, licking the backs of their hands and walking around with their arms hanging towards the ground ‘as if they’re on all fours’.

A handful of students believe they are animals and have asked to be called ‘furries’ by their peers at Brisbane Girls Grammar School
‘When a girl went to sit at a spare desk, another girl screamed at her and said she was sitting on her tail; there’s a slit in this child’s uniform where the tail apparently is,’ a concerned parent told Courier Mail.
‘Girls who identify as felines preen themselves, licking the back of their hands, and the foxes walk around with their arms leaning towards the ground, as if they’re on all fours; the kids are all talking about it.’
The bizarre trend has sparked concern among parents who have been left speechless by the ‘woke’ behaviours.
A Girls Grammar spokesperson denied staff had ‘been made aware of any students who identify as furries.’
Brisbane psychologist Judith Locke said she was unsurprised by the emergence of the new trend.
She claimed it was only a matter of time before people began to identify as animals after romanticising them in their lives, in film and television.
‘But there’s a real challenge around the acceptance of people’s decisions on how they see themselves these days; it is a fraught area.’

Dr Locke said the behaviour should be addressed if it was disrupting classroom learning or taking a toll on the wellbeing of the student.
She said it could also be used by students who were delaying ‘age-appropriate developments’.
Adolescent psychologist Michael Carr-Gregg said he had only come across one client who identified as an animal in his 25 years of practice.
The client was a young boy who identified as a dog.
Dr Carr-Gregg said once the stressors in his life were removed, the boy resorted back to identifying as a human being.
