look up any word, like sex:
 
4.
n., adj. In the broadest definition, someone who finds the idea of anthropomorphic (humanlike) animals, in art, fiction, cartoons, costume, or other media, to be an appealing one. Furries are an extremely diverse group and no one furry may possess all, or any, of the traits typically associated with the group; furries can range from people who are fans of old Warner Bros. and Disney cartoons; people who enjoy portraying anthropomorphic animals in art; people who enjoy imagining what a future, past or alternative world might be like if humans were replaced with or accompanied by anthropomorphic animals; and people who like wearing costume tails, ears and/or animal mascot costumes, to those who feel spiritual connections to animals or to the animal form; those who admire the beauty, power, speed or grace of of the animal form; those who believe they have empathy with or can communicate with animals, for example people who work with them; people who have a great deal of respect for animal welfare; and people who find the concept of anthropomorphic animals enjoyable in a sexual way. (Amongst many, many other things.)

Those who do enjoy the erotic/adult side of furry are, like those who participate in any other sexual fetish or behaviour, almost always harmless in their indulgence of their fantasies, which usually involves erotic art and roleplay, and may involve consenting activities with fellow adults while in costume. Why people get uptight about what is such a cute, silly and affectionate expression of pleasure between two (or more) consenting adults when there's much worse out there to get worked up about such as child abuse, I'll never understand.

It's about fun, people. Try it sometime.
n. Furries often attend conventions.

adj. Furry art incoroprates many diverse forms of media.

Noun: Furry

Furry include basically humanoid-formed creatures with animal faces, fur/scale/feathers/whatever, and often appropriate tails, wings, claws, etc., able to speak, and with a human-like personality, though quite often with "quirks" hinting at the real-life animal upon which the character is based.

There are furries all around from the world, for example: Asia,Europe,USA,Canada people some time meet up at conventions.
The majority of people in furry fandom are either Bi or Gay but you also do get Straight and Male or Female people in the furdom as well

As in most (sub)cults theres a darkside which involes sex, people who fetish with animals, but not everybody is like this.
The furdom ranges differntly from person to person it can be just people who like drawing animals or anthropomorphic animals (Animals with human features, such a human with cat ears) or a person who likes to dress up in there fursona fursuiter or just likes to act as there favorite animal

Normally people who are furries have a fursona, some don't, some have more then one its up to the person. People may also wear tailes/fursuits/fur heads/paws either around the house, or out in public or not at all its up to the person.

Furry does not revolve around sex, not everyone wants to go and yiff another furry, this is where its mostly confused with them thinking all people like having sex with people who are furry, you belive that your wrong.

The age can range from a person young as 13, to up to the age of 60, as I said above not all people want to have sex with the animal/furry
Person1: Hey, you want to go out into town on saturday?
Person2: Sure can I bring my tail?
Person1: Go for it
----
Person1: I herd of a furry con
Person2: Sounds intresting, I may go
Person1: I'm going to get my fursuit ready
Person2: I may bring my tail

Firstly, there are furries and there are Furries. The former term is simply anyone who is fascinated by anthropomorphic animals in media. May watch many Disney movies or read Redwall or similar novel series often. While they are strange, they can usually still function normally in regular life, as it doesn't take more than the role of a hobby or an interest. Then, there are the Furries. There is no way to completely describe them all. However, it is safe to say that they are an extreme version of Furries. Their interest in anthropomorphic animals is an obsession; and, as with any other obsession, hurts their social skills with normal people (who, by the way, they call "mundanes," implying that they are somehow more interesting than a sane person.) They may believe that they are part animal, an animal in a human's body, or were previously an animal (note however, they were always something "cute" or "magestic." They are never voles or rats. This may stem from a negative self image.) They also produce some of the most disturbing pornography on the internet, "furry porn," where the animals "yiff" (euphemism for sex). However, since there is no real-life "yiffing," all of this porn is usually in hentai format (i.e.-drawn). Many Furries fantasize about anthropomorphic animals from many children's movies. However, they are also extremely vocal about their perversions, which sets them up as easy targets. What makes it even easier is the fact that it is as easy to hurt their feelings as an emo kid's. Because it is easy to make fun of a furry, something awful "goons" and portal of evil forum members (admittedly neither forum can brag of having particularly intelligent or unintelligent posters) have a field day whenever a furry wanders into a chatroom wherever said members are chatting.
Furry: "Who wants to see half-Lion and half-Bunny yiff? If you do, come to my site. No furry haters please!"
Me: "I don't think posting on something awful is a very good way for a furry to avoid ridicule."

"Furry" as a noun refers to a wide range of individuals who essentially have an attraction to animals (predominantly fictional anthropomorphic animals) that goes beyond social norms. This attraction may be as benign and innocent as collecting artwork, media, or figurines featuring anthropomorphic animals such as Disney characters (Donald Duck, Mickey Mouse, etc), or as malignant as believing they are an animal trapped in human form, often acting inappropriately upon underlying paraphilias that result in sodomy and even bestiality, and everything else within this spectrum. They may or may not engage in "fursuiting", or the wearing of mascot-type suits that represent anthropomorphic or pseudo-realistic animals, and may utilise Furry-specific language, often mimicking animals sounds or using animals names as substitution for existing words. (Oh my Dog! This is Horseome! Yiff! etc.)

As individuals, they predominantly consist either of the academically challenged, socially awkward, emotionally stunted, or the morally bereft (or any combination of these) in various degrees, with the overwhelming majority of them having a commonality of being sexually depraved. This results in a highly sexualised "culture" within Furries, as demonstrated by the vast libraries of anthropomorphic and "feral" (ie bestial) pornographic imagery and writing. Many are ignorant of the concept of personal hygiene.
It is possible to find Furries who are in full possession of their faculties and not excessively sexual, but they are in the vast minority; some would argue that this minority are not actual Furries, since many believe that in order to be Furry, you must possess at least one of the aforementioned shortcomings, particularly in regards to sexual depravity. Others believe in order to be Furry, one must believe they are an animal other than human on some level.

There are many subtypes of Furries, including Bronies (Fans of My Little Pony), Anime cat-people, Ferals (non-anthropomorphic Furries, often confused for Zoophiles or Bestialists but often one or the other), and many others.

Generally, Furries are unreliable, irresponsible, highly emotional, and mentally unstable - often delusional. It is recommended to avoid relationships of any sort with Furries as they are highly volatile.

If you have artwork of an anthropomorphic Fox being sodomised by an anthropomorphic Wolf possessing grossly over-sized genitalia, you are probably a Furry.

1. having a lot of hair
2. a fandom of people who take an interest in anthropomorphic art or literature of any sort be it poems, stories, animations, or drawings.

Being a Furry ,however, doesn't make you a zoophile and you do not need to have a "Fursona". Each Furry is different just like everyone not in the fandom. Some chose to dress up in costumes representing animals, they are called, "FurSuitors".
People who dress as animals are furries. The Ursa Major is a Furry award.
