Default Furries.

Since there was a discussion about this in another thread, I am moving this here and creating a thread for it.

Furries - what IS a furry, really?
(talking about the humans/fandom here, not the anthropomorphic beings themselves)

A person who is interested in anthropomorphic creatures?
A person who is sexually attracted by anthropomorphic creatures?
A person who shows this sexual attraction by dressing like an anthropomorphic creature?
A person who does this and also engages in sexual acts with other people who do this?

And of course - what do you think of this?

Personally, I think the line is drawn somewhere between the first and second question above. One do not have to manifest this attraction (with fursuits etc) to be a furry - as long as this person has an attraction, often sexually, to anthropomorphic creatures - this person is a furry.

I'm not a furry myself, but I know some people who are - who I deeply respect. I guess my bottom line is - you do not have to be a sick or bad person just because you are a furry - it is simply a different kind of attraction.

One of my best friends is a furry as well.

They still creep me out.

That's the meme.

I'm sorry, quick thread jack, what do you mean when your friend is a furry? Like do they dress up as one or...?

One of my friends was a furry. She loved black cat ears and the fuzzy tail. Very Sassy indeed, and even more so when she gets on the Bass. Rock out all night! I love different people.

Also, purring puts them damn close to furries, which I despise.
How do you know they don't purr?

Also, I know several furries IRL, who are great people and friends of mine. Just because someone has a different way of seeing beauty than you, does not mean they are bad persons.

Wow you guys know furries? I don't personally know any haha but they're certainly not bad people, like Eltu said they just have a different way of thinking and going about things... I just thought would a Playboy bunny be considered one? i think so but just making sure

A person who dresses like a Playboy bunny?

It would depend on the reasons for this person doing it.

Well, essentially yes - a furry is a person feeling attraction (sexual or not) towards anthropomorphic beings.

I have absolutely no problem with furries at all.

As far as i'm concerned, they're not hurting anyone and what people get up to in their private lives is none of my business. It's just a sexual deviance that's all.
