Do you classify yourself as a "FURRY?!?!"

Re: Do you classify yourself as a "FURRY?!?!"

No, I don't consider myself a "Furry" in its purest definition. You could loosely group me in, but it's only a generalization. I'm very limited as to what I get involved with. Here's why:

- I do appreciate cartoon art, and I've been a fan of "toon animals" since my childhood.
- I do tend to enjoy softcore erotica in terms of art, as I see the passion, beauty and emotion most others could never fathom.
- I do produce mostly adult-natured art, because the characters therein are the most 'lifelike' from my viewpoint.
- I do repsect others whose opinions differ than mine, and I'll say that here since this is a list of things that apply to me.

However,

- I do not wish that I were an animal for any other reason than "Ignorance Is Bliss, Intelligence Is Torment."
- I do not wear mascot suits, ears, tails or anything of the sort. Nor do I have the desire to do so.
- I do not find anthropomorphic animal characters sexually attractive or arousing in any way. Nor am I attracted to animals (some people are).
- I do not incorporate "Furry" elements into my everyday lifestyle.
- I do not belive that I am the re-incarnation of an animal spirit.

Bottom line: my association with the "Fandom" is strictly artistic in nature. My utmost goal and reason for being an artist is to achieve the ultimate perfection in character design--to ultimately find the pinpoint location where elegance, beauty and simplicity meet.

Si senor, I's very furry. I think anything goes better with furry, and thus, apply that as consistently as possible, especially to myself, which I consider is what makes ME a furry instead of a fan of furry. I disagree with the idea of applying it to everyone within the fandom just to be inclusive, because it dilutes the furryness and is based on the idea that you have to "belong" to something to have meaning.

Re: Do you classify yourself as a "FURRY?!?!"

I'd say quasi.

Reasons:

* I love animals (not in the sick way), thus I have a liking for anthropomorphic art.
* I do NOT like anthro porn. Then again I'm one of VERY few men who doesn't like porn at all so that's a non-issue.
* My demi-dragonsona is in a few of my mental fan-fictions, usually as the main antagonist.
* I do not really associate myself with the fandom that much. Sure I go on the official chatroom, and I might RP as my demi-dragonsona every so often, but that's pretty much it. Course I wouldn't mind going to a con once or twice in my life, but my dislike of social situations and lack of transportation kinda get in the way. Yes, 20 and I still rely on my 'personal limo'. If you want to go into this further then PM me. Otherwise, it's on a need to know basis. (not that I have an issue with talking about myself, but I don't want THEM getting a hand of my info and I assume you know what I mean by THEM)

Re: Do you classify yourself as a "FURRY?!?!"

I honestly don't know if I'm a furry. I'm a little confused as to what makes a person a furry and what doesn't. Opinions anybody?

+ I like to draw anthros
+ I love animals
+ I like Redwall, and I RP Redwall characters
+ I have a tail and puppy ears and some wolf paw slippers that I occasionally wear for fun, but never in public.
+ I wouldn't mind trying a fursuit one of these days, it seems fun, but I'm not sure.
+ Ever since I was a kid, I've had a unique bond with animals, and I never really thought I fit in completely with humans.

- I hate furry porn.
- I draw other things in addition to anthros
- I really have no desire to be something other then a human, being human is cool with me.
- I don't think I would wear a fursuit in public unless EVERYONE else was doing it, too.
- I don't have any desire to have being a furry be like, a lifestyle for me or anything.
- I don't act like an animal, though I used to when I was a kid. Well.. actually I take that back. Sometimes I act like an animal.
- I don't really go to conventions.

So am I a furry..?

Yup, I am a furry.

- I like drawing and writing about furs.
- I really want to go to some cons.
- I like wearing my fox accessories (Although for some reason, I don't think I'll really enjoy fursuiting)
- Yes, it arouses me in some ways. (Not the actual porn though. Never liked 'Porn' in general)

Re: Do you classify yourself as a "FURRY?!?!"

I'm kind of a closet furry:

I love furry art - both mature and non-mature
I write anthro stories
I do have a fursona

However:

I will not do the fursuit thing.
You will never see me at an Anthrocon... Ever.

There, i said it; happy now?

Re: Do you classify yourself as a "FURRY?!?!"

I have yet to find someone to tell me, "I swear that in my past life I was Ryoko from Tenchi Muyo."

These people exist. Trust me. There's a lot of them. You can find them on LJ, spouting off that their souls are copyright infringements. They terrify me.

Re: Do you classify yourself as a "FURRY?!?!"

Well, I certainly think I'm a furry.
I didn't know the fandom existed until College, but I've been actively drawing furry stuff for as long as I can remember. And I currently participate in the fandom. I even wear a tail at conventions.

But according to a lot of people in this thread, I can't be a furry because I don't believe I have an animal soul, or because I don't fursuit (I'd like to, though! I just don't have that kind of money, and I know my cat would pee on it any way D: ), or because I participate in other fandoms too, etc. :<

But I decided that I'm a furry, and that's good enough for me. :3

Re: Do you classify yourself as a "FURRY?!?!"

I define myself as a Furry since i enjoy furry artwork. ...Much. ;)
 
Re: Do you classify yourself as a "FURRY?!?!"

Yeah, I do.
-I love anthropomorphic art and fiction.
-I create anthropomorphic art and fiction.
-I have a fursona.
-I am in the process of creating a little set of a tail and ears for myself, and may eventually turn it into a halfsuit.
-I'm not sure if I want a fursuit yet (Mainly because I overheat very easily, and walking around in a fursuit could prove difficult.), but I definitely want to create my own halfsuit eventually.
-I'd love to attend a furry convention.

Though yeah, my anthropomorphic art, aside from when I just draw intelligent ferals, is more of a... Hm... I don't know how to word it.
I plan on writing a graphic novel once my art gets good enough, and I';ve started designing characters, and all the characters are anthros, but I think of them as first and foremost humans. I gave them the traits of animals I associated with their personality.

Re: Do you classify yourself as a "FURRY?!?!"

I dunno. On the one hand, my art isn't really overtly anthro (my characters don't wear clothes or have human-esque torsos, they're just animals with facial expressions and some human tendancies). I also don't go to conventions or have a suit or role play or anything like that.

But on the other hand, the very basic definition of a furry is someone who just likes cartoon/anthro animals, and I do, so in that respect I probably am. But then so are a lot of people who've never heard of furry :p

I dunno. Doesn't bother me. Im happy to be called one if people think I am one, or not if they don't. I don't personally refer to myself as one usually, but have no problem if others do.

I think you can call yourself a furry if you like catooned animals.
Ofcorse that doesnt counts for the kiddies.

Re: Do you classify yourself as a "FURRY?!?!"

Well, the minute I started to become aroused by furry porn was the moment I decided 'yep, I'm a furry!'. I have zero interest in fursuiting or conventions, and the stories don't interest me greatly either.

Seeing as I draw, I appreciate the art on an artistic level as well as the porno side of it! :)
 
Re: Do you classify yourself as a "FURRY?!?!"

Mcgorver, your response wins.


anyway, yes I do consider myself a furry.

because:
I have always been into anthros and personified animals.
I make fursuits, and have my own which I fursuit in.
I draw furry art.
I enjoy furry art (not so much the mature side of it, though.)
I defend furries against my anti-furry and 4chan-going friends.
I would love to attend anthrocon, however I missed it last year.
I wear a tail on a regular basis.
I openly tell people I am a furry if the question arises.


and most of all, because it's fun to be a furry. :3

Re: Do you classify yourself as a "FURRY?!?!"

...hm.

I like the aesthetics of anthropomorphics. (I find the blend of human and animal characteristics physically attractive.)
I envy the abilities of certain animals - better sight, hearing, smell... run faster, jump higher, fly, swim farther, etc. and find myself wishing I had those abilities at my disposal.
I empathize well with most animals - they make a lot more sense than most people.
I'm less than pleased with humanity's behavior at times, and I find myself sometimes wishing I could honestly say I'm not a human. (Though I realize that if the mind is human, it matters not what the body is.)

I don't intend to fursuit. I MIGHT attend a con, given enough opportunity. I DO look at and enjoy pornographic art involving anthropomorphics. Non-morphics in porn, sapient or not, aren't my thing, really, though I can't argue against the fact that they possess an elegance that humans can never match. I harbor no ill will towards zoos, though I am most definitely not one. I do not believe I possess an animal's spirit, soul, or mind trapped within a human form - I'm human, through and through, for better or for worse.
