furry is anthro is not furry by SanguineJustice furry is anthro is not furry by SanguineJustice
made another stamp with this template: [link]

i just hate those stamps that say 'furry is not anthro' and all those 'furry vs anthro' things where an anthro wearing modern clothes is somehow no longer an animal with human traits. srsly, if you take the time to look up the definition for 'anthro', furry IS anthro.

REAL, RESEARCHED AND RELIABLE DEFINITIONS:

-anthro is anything, even an object, that has been given human characteristics. a toaster that can talk is anthro. a wolf walking around on its hind legs is anthro.
a human with the ears and tail of a cat is not anthro. that's a kemonomimi. no, really, google it!

-furry is part of the fandom for anthro animals. sure there are some perverted pieces of furries out there, but did you know that there is porn of HUMANS too? wow!
I don't want to be identified with a bunch of perverts, so I'm not going to call myself human! that's the mentality of someone who draws anthro animals all the time and refuses to be called a furry.
BUT it is still their choice. it's not a crime to like something but not want to label yourself as a fan.

[link] this will make everything clear.

No, that is not entirely what a furry is. There are plenty of people who are part of the furry fandom that do not support the sexualization of characters, yiff, otherkin, and all that other weird crap. Furry and anthro are the same thing. It's people like you that demonize our fandom- you're just as ignorant as the haters.

No...a furry AND anthro are animals with human traits. Whether they are wearing clothes or not does not make them two separate things. Although, anthro can be a more realistic version of a furry.
And you don't have to feel like crap or hesitate you're opinion all because I question you. You can own up to your statement and whatnot, and just because I'm speaking against you does not mean I am trying hurt your feelings. Disagreement does not always mean hate, in other words. So what if those people ruin things for you? Just keep doing what you want and own up to it. And don't let those fucking idiots who claim that you're "a fuck tard who wants to have sex with animals" and such drag you down. Try to be stronger than that. They are idiots, and you shouldn't take advice or listen to idiots.
I never said it was MY fandom; when I said OURS (not MINE) I was taking about those who consider themselves to be part of the fandom; despite the haters and all that bullshit. Now what, you're alright with being part of the fandom now?

Actually, I'm part of furaffinity. And there are some cool artists on there and friendly individuals, if you were to be patient enough. I am WELL aware of the strange art that many furry artists tend to post online, but that is why the MATURE FILTER EXISTS. And even if the artist do't consider the filter, furaffinity will automatically switch the picture to a mature setting, if it obviously displays explicit content.  I don't make a big deal out of this type of work as much as many people like you do, because I think of it with this kind of mentality; if I doesn't hurt anyone or put anyone in danger, there is no real problem with it. I see nothing wrong with people drawing out their fantasies, because having fantasies is a natural human thing to have. (As long as they keep it to themselves or show it to the right crowd)

And you didn't like how I said that bit? Did it hurt your feelings? That's too bad. But that's how I feel towards people who bring shame upon themselves and the fandom they are clearly part of all because there is some adult content. Hell, there's adult content EVERYWHERE! Every fandom has that dark side just like the furry fandom! Big shocker, I know! Star trek, Wars, Simpsons, Bob's burgers porn, the list goes on and on and it is true that a lot of it is questionable and disgusting.

Now here you seem to victimize yourself, complaining about how people judge and make fun of you because of you're ethnicity; and it has nothing to do with the topic at hand! How do people automatically know you're German? Or native? The only way they would know entirely is if you talk about it to most people you meet. Also, wtf kind of town do you live in where people say things like that to you on a daily basis? I'm over half native, and the features are obvious to a lot of people, but never in my life have I been called a rock worshipper. But I've been called plenty of rude things and faced a fair amount of bullies; most people have, so don't act all like you've been through the most in life, when there are people that are out there suffering far more than you or me.

If you truly didn't consider yourself to be a furry, you wouldn't be involved or show interest in anthro-related things, period. You wouldn't be drawing what you are drawing. Otherwise, you're lying to yourself and letting yourself feel ashamed over a stupid thing. You can be a furry, and not be loud or inappropriate about it. You can keep it to yourself, and ignore the haters because you seem to be focusing on them too much. 

So fine, don't call yourself a furry. But if you show any interest in furry OR anthro (which is basically another word for furry) you are one. And you shouldn't view it as a bad thing. But if you want to keep looking at it from an ignorant point of view, go ahead. I can't stop you from lying to yourself.

kemonomimi Well I never knew there was term for it! Mostly I just see people call then "nekos" even though that means cat or "neko people" although now that I googled it, it seems its widely used way more than "neko people". Finally! A solid actual term for this!

I couln't agree more, Furry is also the name given to Anthro's that are animal like. 
For example "The Animals of Fathing Wood"  ( no pun intended ) is a series from the early 90's that give a nice example of what a furry is.
Because they called the fandom also Furry,  it confuses a lot of people.
Other examples of furry's are : MLP, Brain from Inspector Gadet, Teddy Rugspin, Captain Bucky O'Hare, Eek the cat, Sonic the Hedgehog, a lot of the Looney Toones and Disney characters ( Wile E Coyote, Mickey Mouse etc).
They are all Anthro but because the are animals they are considered furry.

and i agree with this 100%, but i also think that furry is just the fandom and its members, not the anthros, i mean you see example bugs bunny, to me he is an anthro because he can walk and acts like human, but he isnt furry, he is furry aka animal with fur, not part of the fandom called furry. and the link that makes everything clear, every one should be happy, as it explains everything right

Not all furry is anthro, because some furry characters are animorphic, but have human traits such as ability to speak, wear accessories, etc. They're widespread on this site.

Absolutely true, and Hooray for Anthro's reliable definition! I always thought of humans with animal ears and tail as something else, but not either an anthro or furry! Blushed Super Happy Flailing Cookie

I thought the definition og furry was "anthros with fur", like cats, dogs, wolves, and such. So whenever you make an anthro with fur, it will automatically be categorized as a furry - not necessarily meaning that you're part of the furry fandom (which is something slightly different). Or am I compltely wrong?

I can respect such description. I find it amusing how many self proclaimed furs hate sexuality in their community. I love how anyone not afraid to show off a bit what they find attractive to be offensive simply because it's a minority with a certain taste within a minority. yet we see it all the time with billboards, commercials, music videos, movies.

Thanks for clearing that! I was thinking about what the differense was and actually thought a furry was when you made fursuits to, but now I get it so much more! 

But I still don't think I'll call myself a furry since that makes it sound like I ONLY draw furry >.o
