1.An enthusiast/supporter for animal characters with human characteristics; in particular a person who could dress up in costume as such a character or uses one as an avatar online.
Technically, if you have any sort of appreciation for an Anthropomorphic or non-Anthropomorphic character, then you are a Furry.
Do you like Yoshi? Most likely if you play Nintendo Products. Doesn't mean you LOVE Yoshi.
But heck, if you have likenesses to a character that's not a Human, than you technically are a Furry. May not wear a costume (Except Halloween) or draw a sona of yourself; and (of course) you don't have to. But in ALL technicalities you are a Furry; plain and simple.
Being a Furry does not mean you automatically have any sexual feelings towards Anthropomorphic or non-anthropomorphic. It's such a common misconception of furries and it's so annoying. Drawing furry characters can be fun such as drawing Anime humans all the time. Anime-Dweeb or a Furry Enthusiast; who cares.
And so what if you have feelings for other Non-human species that Talk and have their own thoughts/feelings/interests. Who cares; get over your prejudices.
Human fetishes are as Big as Furry fetishes (if not, Bigger). They both exist.
Call Furries 'Ew' due to a fetish? Human Fetishes are as 'Ew' too; if not, more. It's natural to have sexual interests into other things other than the human body.
Like jeez. There are like 8-9 Billion people in the world. You think that a ton are not gonna have ANY sexual interests into furry characters? So naiive. But honestly, who really cares?
By the way:
You think Humans are the only species that can live in a structured society in the entire infinite universe? Just Humans? I think not. Just saying; just watch Rick and Morty or Bojack Horseman. Those are just shows, but the 'idea' of other species, other than humans, can exist is pretty possible in a universe that has endless potential of intelligent life. Yeah, maybe life-years away from us; but it's possible;
if not, than Naturally.
I hate the Furry haters who just assume all furries are just for beastiality. That's NOT TRUE in the slightest and studies show that be true. Get over yourselves and let furries express themselves without ridicule. We fantasize the Human body all the time that its become so redundant. Honestly, being a human, all the time, is kinda boring after a while and being creative with thinking outside the box and expressing who you feel like you wanna be (or ARE) isn't a bad thing. Especially if you view yourself more than a boring human.
It's FREAKING NATURAL!
You know what I care for? Expression without Harsh Ridicule. It's NATURAL for such Ridicule throughout Our ENTIRE History (Race, Sex, Religion, ect.).
But guess what? We as a species evolve and learn to treat other more fair than our ancestors because we're better than that (or at least the majority do). We've come a long way.
Why be so Rude? Are you Scared or Jealous of Furries ? Either way, get over your Prejudices and support your peers.
It's only Natural.
Go Furries! (Potentially and Technically, Everyone) <3
P.S Esam is SOOOOoooo dependent on Top Tier Pikachu, he should wear a Pikachu costume to a Tourney and win with it xD that be hilarious and get a ton of toxic gamers to go crazy x3
