I think it's widely agreed that that's the minimum requirement. But, because we're going off personal definitions here, I'll take your word for it. :3

Nope, not a furry. I'm a human :)

Post Re: Are You A Furry?
Let me say this now. I am not a furry. I get confused for one so often, though, that I have had to put it in my sig, so I guess you could say that I am as close to being a furry as a human can get.... :lol:

I have no idea why everyone is always so surprised that I am human...

*Looks at your avatar*

What is this I don't even



:lol: Okay, okay...I'm not technically a furry. And yes, my avatar is a fox, because that's the animal that I believe I'm most like...Wait, is that furry? Shoot! :? I don't go to conventions or anything...

Someone help! I'm conflicted!

A furry is a person interested in anthropomorphism. If you like animal people in fiction at least partially because they're animal people, I'd call you a furry.

and it has to have that "because they're animal people" element. I like them for their character development.

Okay, hold up... I like Housepets because their anthro's, and also because of the characters in it...

Can I change my vote, Sleet?

I do not believe the poll can be changed, but I can change how I have you recorded. Do you have a species in mind, or are you undecided/none?

Well sleet, I can't decide if I'm a fox or a wolf, so I'm going to say that I'm a fwulx. Yes that's fox and wolf because I'm weird that way.

Alright, contributing to the furry population here. I don't go to conventions or anything, but I do rather like anthro characters and have an FA account, so yeah.

And my fursona, following several years of evolution, is a wolf/snow leopard/rabbit sort of thing. Long story. That I probably can't remember all of anyway.

Yes, I'm a furry. My "de facto" fursona is a GM white Labrador (partially based on a RL Manchester Terrier/Dachshund of the same name that died in 2003). Unlike many furries, my fursona is more independent and does have differing personality characteristics. He's actually more of a character of closest fit.

Post Re: Are You A Furry?
Ok, so I'm another in the "no" category. But I have nothing against it. I like furry stuff. I have friends that are avid furries. Heck, sometimes I even go to the local furry gatherings with them. But it's just not something I identify with, if ya kinda see what I mean.... I dunno.

But I was told by a very wise wiccan lady that my totem is a siberian tiger, so when I'm rich enough to be a Bond villain, I'll just get a pet one of those.

Indeed, or perhaps most furries haven't voted yet! I could have sworn that we have a lot more furries than this.

I remember Diss could give a re-vote to everyone or something! Though it is a bit early for that.

It also shows there's no such thing as a 'designated human.' Non-furs may be the minority, but they're not as underrepresented as one may expect.

That doesn't stop us from being able to poke fun at them!

Lovingly, of course. You guys are awesome despite your freakishly furless bodies and your thumbs on your feet.

Well, to get biologically technical, people have thumbs on their hands

Anyways, I wouldn't call myself a furry

I thought the proper term for fox-wolf hybrids was WOX. Maybe it depends on who the sire is...

Eh, whatever.

I am very surprised that so many humans are here. I thought the ratio was one out of four. I think some furries are just not voting here. I know this can't be right.

Just keep rearranging the letters in fox and wolf until you find something amusing!

I thought the difference between furries/non-furries would be a lot more than it currently is.

Post Re: Are You A Furry?
I know you wanted to avoid a "maybe" option, but:

On the one hand, I don't identify as a furry, nor do I want to, meaning that I wouldn't say "I'm a furry" as a description of myself.

On the other, based on my own (rather broad) definition, I do qualify--I prefer to draw animals rather than humans, as well as watch so-called "furry" movies and read webcomics with the same.

I guess you could say that I fit my definition but I don't want to label myself in that way.

I would guess those who make their home in the RP thread could alter the ratio to what you expect more than not.

There aren't any, which is why it's such a gray area
That's why Sleets question was "Would you call yourself a furry", not "Are you a furry". The latter sounds objective, but the former is completely subjective.
