I am new, had a question

I was browsing 4chan and saw a drawing of an anthro character in a bikini and thought to myself, "Hey thats kinda hot", so I looked on google images and realized that I am really into it. This was just yesterday however. I am not sure if I could be considered a furry. I am not a good artist, like seriously i have no artistic talent and I don't wanna get into the fursuit thing and I don't think of myself as a different species ar anything. Sorry if I sound ignorant or anything I am new to this stuff.

Well, none of the above is really required, per se. You can be a "lurker", and just sit around enjoying the art, fiction, and other such things.

If so, and you identify as a Furry, as you're a fan of the subject matter? Cool. If you don't? Also just fine. It's a Fandom, just like any other...you do you.

Good points.

@iamnurse : Just see where things lead...at some point, you may decide you're so far into the fandom, you proclaim yourself a furry, though I forgot what the official ceremony is like. We furies really need one. That, a secret paw-shake, membership card and badge ;) Mainly, just have fun with it; it can also be a great social outlet, depends on what you wanna get out of it.

I believe you can call yourself a furry if you have interest in anthro art/writing/stuff and identify yourself as one. Just like someone is not a "star warrior" (gosh, that sounded cringy) by just liking star wars but also by voluntarily identifying himself with it.
 
I originally found the fandom through porn about 5 or 6 Years ago, but last year started appreciating the other side of the fandom! My point being, you may find yourself becoming more interested in it, and for the record, I'm not really an artist myself, I mean, a write stories but that's about it!

Do you want to be a furry is the real question lol. It's all up to you bro.
Yeah its not like once you decide on being a 'furry' you are going to face dramatic instantaneous physical change. If you think you're interests are not enough and or you don't feel comfortable then just browse on you don't really need to go 'all in'.

Do you think anthropomorphic animals are cool? Great, you're a furry. I'd say you're definitely a furry+, though, what with the fetishizing.

Just some Ninja Turtle trash.
The label "furry" can mean many things to many different people. Thinking anthro characters are cool, thinking they're hot, liking anthro art, liking fursuits, etc. Some people who would be considered furries to most people prefer to not to call themselves furries, and vice versa. You can explore the furry community and whatever you think fits you is what you should go with in the end. :D

I mean honestly though, if I could become an anthro raccoon on command at me saying im furry, id be shouting it right now! (Oops wrong forum :p)

U r furry if u have done a bit of research into what furries really are (not that bullshit that CSI and conservative news outlets would have you believe), and consider yourself someone who'd fit into that "category" of people voluntarily.

U can like anthro but not be furry if the term makes u uncomfortable for example...

Are you sure you are doing it right, as soon as i became a furry, my face started burning and rapidly growing hair.

That's odd you were growing hair? Don't most furries have fur and not hair?
