n, adj.
adjective: to be furry
noun: A fandom in which many people partake in activities such as creating OCs(original characters), fursuiting, and creating art. A furry is by the most common definition, an anthropomorhic animal, or someone who is a fan of anthropomorphic animals
Some furries even go as far as saying you need to partake in fursuiting or making art to be a furry, but every furry will have different opinions.
Most people who hate furries are often people who have not been exposed to the entire fandom yet. Most furry haters will stereotype them as animal-fuckers.

The most common furries are the ones that will view the art and the ones who create the art.

The second most common type of furries are the ones who make art.
Fursuiters are furries who dress up in fursuits depicting anthropomorphic animals. Fursuiters most often go to furry conventions and make animal noises, hug people, and sell merch.

yiff
noun
Pornography featuring, but not limited to, anthros.
yiff
acronym
Young Incredibly Fuckable Furry
Not limited to young. In fact, most characters in yiff are over the age of 18.
A yiffer is someone who views or creates furry porn, basically.

That wraps it up! Hopefully, those who read this that are(n't)furries learned something from it.
Guy 1: Dude wanna go watch a movie tonight?
Furry: Nah man, I'm almost finished with my OC.
Guy 1: You're such a furry, man. You need to find more stuff to do.

A furry is an individual that shares interest in Anthropomorphic characters, mainly in animals. Furries are tied to the furry fandom. They are usually few and far between, some furries want to wear fursuits and others may simply draw. They usually attend furry cons, but many don't. The whole subculture was brought to life in the 80's and the 90's and popularized by the Internet. Some furries may share interest in the sexual aspects of the fandom, and they have their own sexual vocabulary. This includes, but is not limited to: yiff (masturbate), spooge (ejaculate) and some others. Some furries pull in stuff from the brony fandom, however some furries are against that.

A furry is, in broad terms, a person who has an interest in drawing, writing about, or dressing up as an animal. Whether it be anthopomorphic, feral, or even just neko. Some of the fans tend to be a little too excited with the animal side, and often draw and write about scenarios involving furries having sex or getting involved in various sexual fetishes, yet this is not always the case. Furries seem to have a large hatedom within the internet, finding them to be gay, idiotic, zoophiliacs and such.

A person that shows interest (some to a lot) in anthropomorphic animals, or "anthro" animals, meaning human-like. There's been a lot of speculation that all furries are sex-crazed maniacs. This is not true. While there are people like that out there (about 1/10th of the fandom), this cannot be proven, as how diverse human personalities are. A lot of furries like to draw and create art. Others create or wear fursuits, write stories/poetry, or just like to hang out with other furries. All (Or a lot of) furries have their own furry persona, or "fursona," which could vary from a fox or dog, to a dragon or lizard. Some fursonas are pokemon or digimon. What you call those kinds of furs would be "poke-furs," or "digi-furs."

There are over 40 annual furry conventions worldwide, or "furcons," the largest being "Anthrocon," in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. There, furries meet up and do things like browse art, hold charity auctions (sometimes), create art, crafts, music, or literature, and play video games (Just to name a few. Depending on which convention, they might have different things on offer).

Most furries just like to have fun, and that's what the fandom's about (Well, that and anthropomorphic characters).
"I'm proud to be a furry, and no one can change that."
"She attended the furry convention."
"He likes to draw furry art, like this cute fox."

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."
