Thesaurus for furry

Synonyms, antonyms, and related words for furry

There is no one single definition of what a furry is. Even within the furry fandom, people cannot always agree on just what makes a person a furry or not.

Some would argue that to be a furry, you must think and talk like one (i.e. use furry specific words and phrases). Even if you go to conventions, wear a fursuit, draw the art, writes the stories etc but don't talk using furry lingo, you're not a furry. Basically, someone that may walk the walk but doesn’t talk the talk.

Others would argue that even liking anthropomorphic creatures makes you a furry. You may have no idea the furry fandom exists or have ever heard of a furry convention, let alone any of the websites; simply liking 'anthro' critters makes you a furry.

The way I see it, if or if you don’t consider yourself a furry is a matter of personal opinion.

As with any hobby, most furries are normal people just like anyone you'll meet at work/school or going to/from work/school or anywhere. Then there is the small percent that are hard core fans and have taken what for most is a hobby and perverted it (sometimes in an all to literal sense).

As is with so many other things in life, the few that take it too far tend to be the loudest. The silent majority are often forced into silence by the loud majority for fear that people will label them as being in the same class as the minority that have perverted it.

One unfortunate side effect of the internet and the relative anonymity that some sites grant their users is people are able to engage in activities (even if only on a virtual level) that they would never even consider doing in real life. An example of this is trolls of message boards that say things to people they’d never say to them in person. I think a lot of the stereotypes associated with furries are because of this.

In conclusion, as with any hobby, there are some furries that have taken it too far and/or perverted what for many is a fun harmless hobby.
If only the silent majority were not so silent, people would realise there is more to furries then perversion.

1) (noun) Sound supposedly made by mating arctic foxes.
2) (acronym) (or more backronym) YIFF or Y. I. F. F. - "Young Incredibly Fuckable Furry"
3) (proper name) YIFF sound server. Program for Linux to help handle audio.
4) (noun) More or less (usually more) sexual act. Commonly used by furries, usually denotes standard intercourse but may denote any kind of sexual behaviour between any type and number of parties (imaginary anthro creatures, humans, animals, even inanimate objects like plushies). Antonym: Yerf.
5) (verb) Like in meaning 4, "to yiff".
6) Furry (or otherwise) artwork depicting yiff as in meaning 4.
7) Expression of joy (by furries)
8) Non-invasive question about sexual feelings/will to mate.

Note in all sexual meanings this has a very specific emotional background: It's neither considered vulgar (like "fuck" or technical (like "have intercourse") or emotion-less (like "make love"). It's playful, considering the act like something fun, nice, pleasant and not very important - without any special obligations attached to it. "Let's yiff" has about the same emotional background as "Let's play".

FUR
fucked up robot

(originated from a team at a well known robotic competition MASLAB at MIT in 2010 who actually named their robot 'FUR' after repeated failures.)
It's already been 30 days, and my SmashRobo can't even move more then 3 seconds; We should rename it for FUR at its Best.

Term used by janitors to call people who have pooped on urinals, floors, and in lockers.
The janitor called the class in a room and said, "Who pooped on a plate, and stuck it in the locker with a paper saying 'Suprise!!!!'. We are humans not animals!"

Furfag (also known as Furry Fag) is a demeaning term used by Nonfurs and Anti-furries to describe a member of the furry community and/or as a condescending way to "acknowledge" a fur's "presence" during online discussions. Also used between Nonfurs and Anti-furries as an "ultimate insult."
Even though the term contains in it the word "fag" (a derogatory term for "homosexual,") it is not usually intended to imply anything about the target's own sexuality.
Be with with one of your furfag friends. They LOVE dicks AND assholes! <3.

Cat
The definitive pet.
Cleans self. Knows how to catch it's food.
Probably gave humans the idea for a "vaccum." Is intelligent and curious.
Likes to lay around alot, sort of like a couch potato. That's cool though.

They are usually quiet and know where to use the bathroom, unlike dogs.
Cats rule, dogs drool. Remember that.

Giving a non human object human charactaristics.
While most of the time associated with the Furry Interet Sub-Culture, this could be basically applied to anything, such as trees and plants, rocks, general objects such as furniture, and even food.
