My definition of "furry" is quite different from a lot of people's.

I consider a "furry" someone who fursuits (or wishes to), their art is a majority of anthro (without humans or generally more animalistic), and so on so forth.

I'm not offended when people call me a furry, but I do not consider myself one.

i draw anthros sometimes, not a lot, but i dont consider myself, as a human, a furry. with all the fursuits and crap. that's just weird.
I dont mind ears so much, but tails? thats weird too.its like halloween every single day or something.

With one addition to that: The only time I'm involved with furries is through business (and of course if I have a friend who is one, but I'm not counting that because you make friends with people for all kinds of reasons, it's not just "oh because they're a furry")

I draw whatever I draw as well as everything else I create X3 I just do it because it's something I enjoy and I'm good at- but nothing in the mix has anything to do with this so called furry fandom thingy that people are a part of.

Yeah, same, I just like drawing animals which is why I made my fursona. Not because I actually want to be her. :P

By definition of what a "furry" is - the voice actors for animated films using animals would be considered a furry, so all in all, it's a stupid term.

I draw animals, anthro, I have an anthro fursona, and I'm into fursuiting. I guess it kinda makes me a furry? Even though I don't always see myself as one, I guess I still am :'D

If you dont see yourself as one, then you arent; thats the only real 'qualifier' on it

I said I don't always feel like I was one. I think I am a furry, just not the kind of furry who would shout out their pride everywhere :P
... So, I'm a closet furry :XD:

Well as for me... No.
I don't really know what is considered a furry nowadays with everyone telling others what's furries and what's not... sooo to make it clear...
- I like animals and drawing animals.
- I have a fursona. She has all of my personality traits and represents myself.
- My fursona is a feral. Not an anthro.
- I don't want to be my fursona. I don't want to be an animal. I do not want to be treated like a cat, not in real life and not on the Internet.
- I'm not fond of fursuits (not even those ears and/or tails) and wouldn't want to wear them. Not at home and not in public either.
- I don't like yiff or anything like it. :')

Sooo I don't really see myself as one.

well as far as what furry is, it only comes down to if you want to consider yourself one and a part of the community xD

the majority actually isnt in to fursuits or porn/yiff, and theres a pretty large subcommunity of feral fans too, so. and way way the majority doesnt actually want to be an animal, thats more into lifestylers and therians (which therians arent even furries and tend to take offense at being called such). and not even all lifestylers are like that, im one and i wouldnt want to be a snow leopard lmao. (well, not permanently. shape-shifting would be cool but I DIGRESS)

but yeah nothing in there would make you NOT a furry for any reason if any of that was why you didnt consider yourself one. but otherwise CARRY ON

Pfft I don't even know anymore. The term makes little sense to me nowadays anyway xD
Oh well, I'm not that concerned about it either :P
