Top Definition
A human animal, or an ultra humanoid animal.

This furry classification term is very strict and does not include all animals that are humanoid or human-like. For example; Apes are humanoid animals, but are not anthros. Even an ape with a completely humanoid body shape is not an anthro as they wouldn’t be that far off from feral apes on the spectrum. Rather, an anthro ape would literally be a human. This is why apes are almost never drawn by furries.

Qualifications to be “anthro”:

1.) Is based on an animal

2.) Is humanoid/humanlike, has human traits

3.) Has human sentience and can speak

4.) Has the body structure/shape of a human(Bone, Muscle, Organs, etc)

5.) Is far off on the spectrum from the animal it’s based on

6.) Can walk upright
Ignorant Individual: “Furries are zoophiles!”

Normal Person: “Not all furries are sexual, but even so, Zoophilia/Bestiality refers to non-human animals. By definition you’re wrong.”

Ignorant Individual: “Shut up they want to fuck animals. They’re getting off to something that’s animal-based.”

Normal Person: “Humans are based on apes? There’s literally nothing immoral or zoophilic about furry/anthro porn.”

Also known as furry porn, yiff is a popular porn category which depicts anthros or human/ultra humanoid animal characters. Generally it’s harmless and completely unrelated to zoophilia.

Porn of non-human/anthro fictional animals is called feral porn. Yiff is to feral porn as hentai is to loli porn.

Furry: “Not all furries are sexual, but even so, zoophilia refers to actual, non-human animals. By definition you’re wrong. And humans are based on apes? There’s nothing immoral or zoophilic about yiff.”
