So I know we're ALL in agreement on this....

One is not a "furry" unless one specifically refers to oneself as a "furry"

Correct?

No.. the thing you should come away from here is..... there is no spoon.

Seriously, I don't know if that would always be true, but I'd say it's a fair assessment. There's folks that suffer from the mental disorder that makes them think they're weres that haven't heard of furrydom. There's folks that want to blow goats that have never heard of furrydom. There's folks that grew up thinking Thundercats' Cheetara was pretty hot that have never heard of furrydom. So, at least as a rule of thumb, I'd say that concept works... or maybe, one is not necessarily a furry unless one aligns themselves with the fandom. If you max out your daily upload limit on VCL spreading craptacular unbirthing porn, go to cons and scritch and murr and crap, and fancy yourself more feral than your coworkers, then, you may be a furry, even if you avoid using that word at all costs.

So, never label yourself a furry unless you're willing to take the punishment, correct?

Ouch.

I agree. The only people who would disagree are other furries.

ZIRC is an IRC network. That's where the majority of the 'I have no life so I sit on the intarnet' are when not posting goatse.

There are some rare exceptions, but on the whole you're totally correct dude.

Totally correct.
From a point of view, the "furry fandom" is not a fandom, but a collective.

There are different categories of human groups, from simple masses to families and societies, and each of these categories feature different characteristics and behave on a different way.

A standard fandom is populated by people who like something, like my afition for diecast models.
I just like collecting diecast models, and although I'm aware there are many other people around the world who like collecting diecast models, I don't belong to any diecast model club or whatnot. There's no "group conscience" between diecast collectors, I just happen to like diecasts, period, and even in the case that there was some pervert who sees diecast models as erotic and wanks at the sight of an 1/43 Renault 8 TS by Minichamps, I couldn't care less, because I don't belong to any organized group created around diecast models.

On the other hand, in order to be a furry, you -need- to be aware of the existance of the furry fandom as a collective, be introduced to it by either a webpage, a friend or a newsgroup, and then participate on what's considered to be "furry" activities, like drawing furry stuff, MUCKing on furry MUCKs, dressing in a fursuit or even yapping when you pick up the phone.

This leaves apart a LOT of people out there who share the same interests than most people on the furry fandom, but who aren't part of the collective as they're unaware of its existance.

The problem is that the furry fandom's interests are in fact much broader than in any other fandom. "having an interest to anthropomorphic creatures"can mean many things, from enjoying Disney's old comics to fantasizing with being sodomized by a giant chimera with huge genitalia. To simplify things, the evolution of furry fandom's interests thru time is like this:

People interested on funny animals
People interested on sexy funny animals
People interested on sexualized funny animals
People interested on bizarrely sexualized animals
People interested on sexualized animals
People interested on bizarre sex

This is very schematical, but it helps to understand how a fandom originally conceived to people interested on funny animals ended up accepting bizarre sex as an integrant part of its nature.

To look at it another way, compare furrydom to a country club... we'll call it the Sommerset Country Club. A lot of people worldwide golf... but not every one of them seeks to join the Sommerset Country Club. But, not being a member of the Sommerset Country Club doesn't mean you can't play golf.

Alright, alright, already.... *sigh*

I'll knock of all the ambiguous crap and just come out and say what my concern is in rock-solid terms...

Look... Just because I HAPPEN to have drawn a picture...

And just because that picture HAPPENS to include a wolf-like character...

And just because that wolf HAPPENS to walk on two legs...

And just because that wolf HAPPENS to have protuberances on it's person that would resemble human mammae...

..... That doesn't make ME a "furry", does it?

Because I really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really.....

*GASP*

.....really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really....

..... REALLY don't want to be a "furry"!

Which is predominately a furry trait. OMG FULL CIRCUL.


Wolf In The Breast
Under my shirt, Have to amass
Sling the tainted words
I'm each arms they fall on
It's my body, Puzzles the trick in me
I lend it out to borrow, it might survive
My baby's cries
Laughing on my bed, I've pretended I knew the way
Especially when, I'll revenge, all I'll need's that day
It's my body, Puzzles the trick in me
I lend it out to borrow, it might survive
My baby's cries
Laughing on my bed
I've pretended I knew the way
Especially when
I'll revenge, all I'll need's that day
I'll feel perpetual
I feel perpetual
(x2)
True blue and real
I feel, I feel
True blue and real
Laughing on my bed
I've pretended I knew the way
Especially when
I'll revenge, all I'll need's that day
I'll feel perpetual, I feel perpetual
I'll feel perpetual
True and real

Let's approach this scientifically. How big are the wolf's breasts? From that, we can compare it to the furry-to-mundane lupine boobage logrithmic chart and derive an answer.

I believe the formulae is as follows...

a(x > y) = z

a = female funny animal

x = size of bosom

y = 1/3 total body mass

z = furry

This is more commonly known as the "Winger Theorem"

Actually, that's the simplified version. Here's the more advenced theory:

P(f) varies as <(B♀*Mp + B♂*Mb)/M>! + <(B♂*Mp + B♀*Mb)/5M> + |(M-70)|, where P(f) is the probability that it's some fucked up furry shit.

B♀ = body type (feminine)
B♂ = body type (masculine)
M = total body mass
Mb = mass of breasts
Mp = mass of penis

Note that the fucked-up-factor is represented by the cube of the factorial in terms of organs feing featured on things that should not have said organs.
Some of the coefficients may be slightly off, but I'm sure you'll forgive me if I don't want to do the maths regarding how much one's dick should weigh relative to your own body mass...
