Poll: When you consider a person as a "furry", in what sense do you mean?
The genre
The fandom/industry
The lifestyle
The obsession
It's more complicated than that. (Feel free to elaborate.)

"Hey, you. Yeah, you, the Furry"
>> Of course, the issue's been floating around for a while, where people who are indeed making a living off and getting involved with the furry community dissociate themselves from the notion of being a "furry"... type... person.

Feel free to add, I'm sure there's plenty of opinion about this.

RE: "Hey, you. Yeah, you, the Furry"
to me, you're a furry if you:

1)like fursuits (almost surely you're one)
2)like/draw animal art
3)join the community, even if you deny it.
4)believe you are part animal (though this is closer to being therian)

Fursuiter, fox, friendly, freaky,

so why isn't my name "Fee" but "Vee"?

must be cause i can't think of words that start with V

RE: "Hey, you. Yeah, you, the Furry"
Weeeeeell to really put things in a non-immature way, without ever having to resort to bias and emanating a huge bigotry sign that says 'DURHUR FUR BAD, FIRE GOOD', and getting my butt whooped by everyone who comes across this,

liking subjects of furry origin, or being a fur(and not necessarily more spiritually-identical to animals, 'cos this statement is fairly general. Native Americans would be counted as fur that way, but we can't tell for sure), getting involved in the fandom, is more or less something like a preference in essence.

It's like I can choose to cosplay without ever having anything to do with anime, just 'cos I like the costumes and not the moving pictures. It doesn't necessarily mean I'm a weaboo, or an otaku now, does it? It's a title we could deny or accept depending on what we choose*.

Emphasis on choose* there denotes choice of identity.

It doesn't stay just there, the choice of identity includes sexual preferences and mainstream trends as well. Emo, goth, punk, rock, homosexuality, bisexuality, staying straight, lifestyle trends,

it's all in the choice. Just because somebody calls you a furry, doesn't necessarily mean you're a furry. You might* be, but who could tell? It's your choice to decide.

As for me, I'm not ENTIRELY fur, but I'm not ENTIRELY sure. It would be childish of me if I let people decide for me, so I'll say this:

I'm open to opinion. Would you say I'm a fur since I have a fursona, some furry artwork, likes animals, participate in the fandom, and suchly?

Yay for reasoning, but I may be flawed in that faculty. 8D

A man steps off a cliff to test his faith.

A man steps back from the cliff to test his rationality.

A man sits down and wonders to test his reasoning.



I am the man busy someplace else doing something much more useful yet.

RE: "Hey, you. Yeah, you, the Furry"
I consider myself "Furry" to a certain extend. Smile
I'm an artist..and I love sometimes to get in touch with who I'd wanna be inside..as a fur! I'm sure every single fur (be it artist or not) out there has a sense of fantasy living in the back of their minds.
I for one, has always had a thing for the uncommon. I enjoy drawing furs as a way of escapism. I don't care what people think about me - they may call me weird but heck...I'm proud of it. =P

But, like I said..to a certain "extend" - I'm still down to earth on certain topics..its a sad thing but...such is the world we live in~
Sometimes I see artists on FA who are like.. "I'm not a furry, I just draw them." - I don't get them.. Haha.. Perhaps they're just afraid of people thinking they're weird or getting those Anti-furry remarks thrown at em.

Whatever it is..being a fur has taught me a lot...aaaand I've met tons of friends..and even a second or third family! Smile (Kinda like AA, hehe~)

RE: "Hey, you. Yeah, you, the Furry"
Considering the size of my reply, I felt that it would be more appropriate to put it in its own thread ... and appropriate title Tongue

RE: "Hey, you. Yeah, you, the Furry"
I consider myself a furry...


Is it weird that I want to undergo cosmetic surgery to fully become my fursona. . .? The whole 8,000 yards and all... Scapular modification/dermal-and-muscle-skin-cloning-and-grafting (Wings), skull shape modification, ear re-positioning/lengthening/military-grade hearing implants, bone "stretching"/grafting (to change my bipedal legs into digitigrade-style legs), muzzle implantation, keratin relocation/moulding (ever-present, grow-able claws), and dermal recoloring (purple)...

RE: "Hey, you. Yeah, you, the Furry"
No its not weird...

Furries wanting to be genetically modified to become a furry is almost like a brony trying to find the way to build a portal and find which universe is the universe that is filled with multicolored ponies...

It's not weird at all...
