1. Someone with an interest in anthropomorphic animals.

2. An anthro or a human/ultra humanoid animal character. (Popular examples being Loona from HelluvaBoss, Lola Bunny, Beastars characters, etc.)

The furry fandom is a subculture focused around cartoon animals, anthropomorphic animals, and human-animal hybrids, commonly expressed through art, costumes, cosplay, roleplay, media, etc.

It’s a common misconception that being a furry is a sexual thing, but there does exist a large sexual part of the community. Yiff or furry porn is a popular porn category produced by the furry fandom, generally it’s harmless and completely unrelated to zoophilia as it focuses on furries/anthros.
Ignorant Individual: “Furries are zoophiles! They’re getting off to something that’s animal-based!”

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.”

Furries are fans of anthropomorphic animals. These are animals with human characteristics, like Mickey Mouse, Sonic the Hedgehog, and many mascots for sports teams. Furries are part of the greater furry fandom. Besides referring to fans of anthropomorphic characters, furries are also the anthro characters themselves.

1.noun; A fandom of people who are animal enthusiasts who usually draw or have anthropomorphised animal characters. There is two main sides of the furry fandom. The SFW side, which is quite a bit larger than the NSFW side, but usually keeps quiet due to the reputation the NSFW side has given the fandom. Most furries are not interested in beastiality or fetishizing anything related to furries. And then we have the NSFW side. The fandom is judged largely by the NSFW side, which most other fandoms have NSFW sides, and their reputation isn't based on that, so it doesn't really make sense.

2.adjective; Fluffy, having fur, fuzzy
1. person a: Did you hear that Bailey is a furry?
person b: Does that mean they want to have sex with animals?
person a: Most likely not. I can't believe that a whole fandom is judged by a minority of itself.
person b: Oh, alright. I can be safe taking my dog over to their house.

2. My cat's tail is so furry!

A person who is interested in/attracted to the idea of anthropomorphic animals.

The furry subculture is stereotypically associated with only wearing elaborate ‘fursuits’, however it is argued that there are different tiers of furry.

Some furries show some interest in the subculture and partake in the communities. This could be an attraction to a cartoon anthropomorphic animal, or simply liking furry art. However there are some hardcore furries, whom will most likely own a fursuit and have a fursona. Some individuals believe themselves to be non-human and do not identify as anything other than the animal they are portraying. Sometimes they even engage in sexual activity, which in the furry fandom is known as yiff.

Some furries can often be identified by their actions, and habits. Some examples of furry behaviour is making animal noises, partaking in furry communities, showing interest in furry orientated games and even mentioning furry related things as casual conversation.

Furry is often used as an insult, however to those in the furry fandom it is a way of life.

“Xenev brought a new fursuit the other day. He is officially a furry. Him and tifsar will be engaging in yiff tonight”

A furry is a person who is a fan of anthropomorphic characters, or animals that behave and have some characteristics of humans (like Zootopia).

A furry usually is someone who creates an anthropomorphic character based on their personality, or a personality they wish they had- called a fursona (furry persona).

If they have enough money, they spend a few thousand dollars on a fursuit, which is basically a mascot but with more padding, and they are only expensive because they are made by individual artists, as opposed to a huge company.
Some furries don’t have fursuits, like popular YouTuber Blu the dragon. Art is a huge aspect in the furry fandom. Most furries are REALLY good at drawing, so they draw their fursonas doing something, like playing tennis or doing homework. Not all furries can draw, though.
Some people see the furry fandom as a sex-crazed fetish, but there is only as much of a sexual aspect to it as there is to being human in general- it is what you make of it. The media likes to exaggerate about the furry fandom, except for a few articles by CNN and documentaries by MSNBC, BBC, and VICE.

Above all, the Furry Fandom is basically the world’s most misunderstood subculture.
