    For those that do not know what a "furry" is it is an anthromorphic animal or an animal that has human traits. Some like to dress up as animals while others roleplay.
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    I've never run across one in real life. There seems to be quite a range of "furries". I have run across some seriously deranged furry webcomics. I would never assume that represents all.:)

    Thats good to know. I like to hear lots of people's opinions on these kinds of topics. With shows like Csi and vanity fair giving us a bad name its nice to hear someone who is open minded.

    I've met 6-7 Furrys and they were all Bi-Sexual. The Furry community seems to be very sexually perverted and i'm pritty sure the Furrys i've met dress up as their animal persona when having sex. That's all I really know about them.

    I don't see a reason to call myself Tim The Fox Man and dress up as a fox.

    I'm sure it's a sexual thing.

    I think...well I won't say it. Certainly something I want to stay away from.

    Sorta creepy, actually. It's okay on some avatar game, but when it's brought into reality...

    I think furry is a cartoon character. I don't believe that people can be one in real life. People can be very hairy but that just proves that person has a lot of hair. The amount of hair on your body doesn't make people any different because they still act and look human. You never see a person having dog ears. Animals are different in every way. God created us so that we are permanently human :amen:

    And besides, people turning into furries is a evolution belief. I don't believe in that stuff, I only believe what God says because his word is the only thing that has evidence supporting it. I don't believe in something that sounds illogical. This is what I believe so don't try to get me to believe in evolution! You can't get me to change my mind, so don't bother!!!

    I feel sorry for the ones who enjoy dressing up but aren't in it for the yiffing. :(

    Furry term for erm. Sex.

    Some furrys enjoy that. Some aren't interested in that at all. The furry lifestyle seems to help people be more cuddly and hugy and generally tactile in a non-sexual way .. some people feel benefits of that, for whatever personal reasons.

    I've never met one but seen them portrayed on CSI. I don't understand them and don't think I want to. I have problems being myself let alone trying to be a fox or bear or whatever else.

    Actually....a "furry" is a person who is fascinated by anthropomorphic characters and animals or who wishes themselves or imagines themselves to be one.......

    When I think of the word furry the place I have came across it was in that Second Life game that virtual world. They did some fairly weird kinky things in there. from my understanding of it these people feel in life they are more akin to an animal they identify with, For sure they are sexually attracted to animals, and enjoy role playing it..... lol not my thing.

    Second life is one of the weirdest things I have ever seen and that was the second weirdest thing in it.

    Frankly, it is just someone interested (fascinated might be a better way of putting it) in "anthropomorphism" - the idea of, essentially, a cross of human and animal characteristics. And it seems to mean pretty different things for everyone.

    From the website for the largest "furcon" in the world -Anthrocon-
    Just what IS "Furry" fandom? | Anthrocon 2011: The Anthropomorphic Institute of Magic, June 23 to 26, 2011

    Sure, there are people in it for sex ("yiff" as was said above) but many are not. Like all "fandoms" (looks at StarTrek, StarWars, anime fandoms, etc. etc. etc) there is an element that is involved in sexual terms - pretty much seems to be a human things overall, sex is prevalent anywhere possible essentially.
    But others are simply in it for enjoying the art, literature, and such things available to them from the fandom.

    Not all that many actually even have a "fursuit" (which is what CSi and the like have relied on and used for the shock value - sex dressed up like an animal). They are very expensive and few people make them. And a large portion of those who do make them do not accept "adult" requests for the suits.

    The last in-fandom study that was done (which is done pretty much yearly, I think):Furry Survey Results: Current as of April 7, 2011


    Sorry for the long post, maybe that will at least give people something outside the CSI episode to look at it by.

    [Yes, I am a furry, hence the name.]
