The group is STILL in an urgent need of new moderators.
The founder is not able to vote on submissions anymore.

The only duties moderators will have are:
* voting on submissions

*and probably moving incorrectly assigned images to the appropriate folders
- that's all!

Anthro-NOT-Furry - submission guide by VixenDra

Requirements/expectations/wishlist:
* is not a furry and doesn't confuse anthro animals for furries but also is not a furry hater (this is actually expected from regular members but let's face the reality)
* is at least 18 years old
* knows and understands the group's idea/aim, rules & guidelines www.deviantart.com/anthro-not-… and folder organization sta.sh/0froi6dldxw
* can vote at least once a week or two (most of the time)
* has no mental barrier against using the Decline vote on unacceptable submissions
* will be able to stay unbiased when it comes to judge a nude or sexualized image (in accordance to the group's rules)

* will be able to assort certain images/species to appropriate folders even if it requires a research (Wikipedia suffices)
* will be able to decline images promoting(/showing in good/positive light) morally controversial contents even if they support them themselves. (If it's illegal or immoral in most of the western countries, please don't accept anything related to it, e.g. polygamy unacceptable vs homosexuality acceptable) - the group should stay a possibly neutral place to as many users as possible.
* won't abuse their post e.g. to smuggle any of their rules-breaking art to gain views

*If a mod encounters any doubts, the founder will do her best to help if asked!

Also don't worry:
"Gallery mods are not responsible for verifying if the character is a Furry character or not but will reject a submission if they happen to recognize a Furry character (e.g. the FurAffinity mascots)."  - just judge the visuals, no need to verify anyone. (However, doing this as much as possible can really help the group)

The more the better!
Please apply if you consider yourself suitable enough (send a note to the group, co-founder, founder, or comment below).

Group Info

Group dedicated to anyone who enjoys anthropomorphic art and characters but DO NOT identify themselves as furry nor their possible alter-egos as fursonas.

It's not an anti-group, but a group that will mark your art as non-furry if you're not a furry and your characters are not fursonas.

You should be free to dictate your own identity. If you feel this way too, then this is the place for you.

Using this group is stating you/the characters are NOT FURRY!

As the name says, anthro but NOT furry.

Furry is a subculture, identity - not a type of anthro.
Anthropomorphic animals have been a part of human culture since before ancient Egyptians and their gods (e.g. Anubis), Furry was established as late as in 1990s (some believe it started in 1965 which is still thousads of years after ancient Egyptians).
Furries are PEOPLE who belong to the furry subculture. Their fursonas and OCs are commonly called furries too, which is in fact a kind of metonymy.
Anthro animals are NOT an exclusively furry phenomenon!
E.g. this anthro lion figurine is about 40.000 years old: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anthropo… :)

For now this is the only group found to allow you distinguish your anthro art from furry art and you, anthro enthusiasts, from furries if you don't identify yourself as a furry.
Because (animal) anthro=/=furry:)

This is NOT a hate group!


This group was created for those who wish to distinguish themselves from the furry community while being interested in art featuring anthropomorphic animals and/or representing themselves with an anthropomorphic alter-ego.
If you do want to identify yourself as a furry, there isn't anything wrong with that but this group is NOT what you're looking for!



All artworks featured in this group is supposed to have been posted by artists/character owners who DO NOT consider chararacters used as furry/fursonas.

By joining this group, you state you're NOT A FURRY (while you may create for furries too).
By submitting to this group, you state the characters featured are NOT FURSONAS/FURRY OCs (while you may be a furry yourself).
If you're a furry artist and join just to submit art for your non-furry clients, please, rather don't deny your furry identity pride by joining, better suggest your non-furry clients to join the group and to request the art you did for them for you, and simply accept the group's request.

Please do not add art featuring characters that aren't yours unless they're already featured in the group or you're absolutely sure! (won't be verified though) And feel free to post random non-OC anthros.
The group is NOT responsible for any instances of furries mislabbeling themselves and/or their furry submissions as non-furry via using this group!
If a fanart of your furry character was added to the group, please request a removal, thx!


You don't even have to contribute art to be part of the group. Simply join this tiny but proud community of non-furry anthro artists and appreciators if you don't consider yourself a furry! :)


This group focuses on the type that is most frequently mistaken for furry - animal anthropomorphs, both realistic and cartoony.

Submission rules:

:iconacceptplz:
:bulletgreen:Acceptable and welcome::bulletgreen:


:bulletgreen:At least 1 character must be an anthropomorphic animal:
a) walks upright on two legs (Bipedal) or is a taur(humane torso placed instead of the 'neck' of the quadrupedal body)
b) has working, opposable thumbs (those are allowed to walk on fours)
c)More animal than human-like:
- Dominantly animal face(in case of borderline cases, the face sells it all)
:bulletgreen:Fairly mild blood and gore
:bulletgreen:Neutral (=non-sexual) nudity (like e.g. sheaths on males, nipples on females; in NOT provocative contexts, informative/educational included).
:bulletgreen:Mild erotically suggestive couple scenes (case-by-case basis)


:iconrejectplz:
:bulletred:Not allowed::bulletred:


:bulletred:FURSONAS! (if you call your alter-ego a fursona, don't post it here of you'll cause confusion as fursona was a word invented by furries for furries - won't be verified, it's your responsibility)
:bulletred:Non-animal anthros (plants, objects, robots etc.)
:bulletred:Humans and humane faces (unless accompanied by an animal anthro; don't affect the folder)
:bulletred:More like a zoomorphic human than an anthro animal, e.g. nekos etc.
:bulletred:Fursuits (sorry, those are FURRY stuff!)
:bulletred:Over-sexualised characters (very large and unnaturally round breasts, poses exposing genitalia/crotch in a teasing way, provocative, slutty etc.)
:bulletred:Too fetishy art (including SFW)
:bulletred:Censored pornography (by pixels, squares, emotes, etc.)
:bulletred:Natural animals from the wild/100% ferals that do not show any clear sign of anothropomorphism
:bulletred:Reposts of sb else's work (if the artist is on DA, please request their submission to be included in the group!).
:bulletred: Posting to "Featured" (it WILL expire, please choose correct folders! or it'll be assumed you didn't check the rules at all)

No literature, only visual art, please.

The group focuses on styles and types of anthro that are frequently falsely assumed to be furry. It doesn't feature contents that are very unlikely to be mistaken for furry^^

Hello,

I just discovered your group but I don't know if I might join and submit art here because I do not know the difference between anthro and furry.
For instance:
If I'd submit this: Catyroman - Furry Clique (1994's OC Redraw) by Tabascofanatikerin
or this: My OC for 'South Styx St. 66': Rothschild by Tabascofanatikerin
or this: Mermay 2018 - Mother + Son (as Dolphin Merpeople) by Tabascofanatikerin
would it be right or wrong?

Hello! So first off:

Catyroman - Furry Clique (1994's OC Redraw) by Tabascofanatikerin

^This drawing is perfectly fine for the group. (Although, it would be preferred if you didn't call your characters "Furry." Unless of course, you're just using the word as a simple adjective: "covered in fur")

My OC for 'South Styx St. 66': Rothschild by Tabascofanatikerin

^This is also fine for the group.

Mermay 2018 - Mother + Son (as Dolphin Merpeople) by Tabascofanatikerin

^This one is not acceptable here, because the characters look more like humans than anthropomorphic animals.

Take a look at this submission guide for visuals on what is acceptable or not, and please read the rules for any additional information.

If you still have questions, don't hesitate to ask! :)

If you have an anthro character you use to represent yourself with, what do you call it? It's not a persona because it's not human, it's not a fursona cuz that's their word.
Genuinely curious. :?

Hmm, to be honest, I would still call it "persona." Looking at the definitions of persona, there is no definition meaning it can only be human. It is just a character that someone uses.

per·so·na
ˌpərˈsōnə/
noun
noun: persona; plural noun: personae; plural noun: personas
  1. the aspect of someone's character that is presented to or perceived by others.
    "her public persona"
    • a role or character adopted by an author or an actor.

You can also go by: alter ego/alter-ego, animal-self, anthro-self, *insert species*-self,  etc. you can always try to combine some words of such sort and invent your own way of reffering to that. My boyfirend's brother went by persona for his pandaren self tho - when he was trying to define what his character's function was.

Could still just be a character going by definition. (That's where the origin of the word derives from: from Latin persona ‘actor's mask, character in a play,’)

But if the word bothers you that much. I have seen a couple of people use "anthrosona." However, there's always that sliiiight risk that using that word play is just creating the same problems that "furspeech" gives us, but it's totally up to you.

I hope you don't mind if I join this group. I draw anthropomorhized monsters and I don't identify myself as a furry nor the stuff I draw as furry art. Thanks.
