What is a furry exactly? Are all people who like furries homosexual?
Hmm… let’s see if I can answer this correctly xD
I’ll start off with saying no… you do not have to be homosexual to be a furry xD
A furry is basically just an animal with human qualities and most of the time the body structure like a human, i.e., walk on two legs/hands/emotions and what not, as you can see through-out this blog. Another word for that is “Anthropomorphic”.
There’s also “Feral”. A feral furry is just an animal in it’s animal form and NOT humanized. Just like how anthro furs are basically people with thoughts and such and stuff like that, feral furs are just like that but… not in an anthro form!
But when someone calls them-self a furry it can mean a couple of things. First of all, many furries have what we call a “Fursona” which is ourselves in an anthropomorphic form which can be any animal or have any distinctive qualities we desire.
You could look at this for an example: (no that isn’t me)
One thing someone with a fursona can do is also purchase a “fursuit” which is their fursona in a wearable outfit! Though… they can be very expensive so therefore not everyone has one :c You basically wear them to conventions or just… whenever you feel like it x3 (…as long as it’s practical. I don’t recommend showing up to a fancy dinner or a funeral in a fursuit.) Wear them to parties or fun places or just… lounging around your home!
Now, while I’ve been talking about fursonas and such, you don’t HAVE to have a fursona or anything to be considered a furry. A furry could just be someone who just has an interest in the fandom as in… liking the artworks people produce, being an artist yourself or just… enjoying the idea of the whole furry thing! Really there isn’t an exact guideline you have to follow to call yourself a furry.
So I hope this had helped you with your questions! If anyone ever has questions about the furry fandom, others within the fandom are usually willing to help!
THANK YOU SOOOOOO MUCH FOR THIS!!!!!!!

A great comic on Free Speech from XKCD.com Seriously, more people need to understand this about the 1st Amendment. It does indeed mean that I have the right to be offended and to voice that offense directly at your face.
The alt-text makes this even better:
I can’t remember where I heard this, but someone once said that defending a position by citing free speech is sort of the ultimate concession; you’re saying that the most compelling thing you can say for your position is that it’s not literally illegal to express.
Just bull things.
SEND THE LOVE AROUND
A few weeks ago I was feeling pretty down. I was having trouble with a person and I was feeling very underappreciated as an artist, and while I did have my problems, it pissed me a lot. But instead of feeling sorry for myself (for once) I started thinking about other great, awesome artists I followed who could be feeling even shittier and not believing in themselves.
I admire them; each one of them. Each had their own perks that made themselves and what they create special. And I realized that hell, I love being told what people like in my work. Not just “you’re so good”, but “I love the way you draw this and that”. At that moment, I really wished someone would come over and tell me that. How many other artists around weren’t feeling that way, at that moment?
So the messaging started. I never wrote a model message, they were all personal. And the answers were all personal too. People who responded sounded honestly happy someone took time to tell them what they admired in them, and told them never to give up no matter what. The ones who didn’t, well - I know they liked it, because it was from the bottom of my heart.
So after this time debating if I should write this little thing or not, I made it. I don’t know if there’s anythig similar around, but if it does, take this as a reinforcement. It’s not a campaign, nor a meme, nor will it grant you favours from your favorite artists. Please, don’t do anything if it’s for interest. Instead, look at the artist as another human being who struggles with daily life and yet make such beautiful things you admire so much. Call them by their name, tell them what you like in them. Or draw, paint, write or compose a lil’ something for them. Doesn’t matter. Show appreciation.
Send the love around to those who inspire you.

This deserves to be on my main dash, it’s a really good thing. Share some love, you might just make someone’s day and hey, that feels good!
