    Recently i discovered furries, and i was surprised that i had never heard of them before. Strange, but interesting. Are there any furries on SF? I want to meet some, but their forums arent very friendly in my opinion.

    DO NOT google image search it.
    for serious, don't.
    If you must know- look up the definition first.

    I believe furries are basically people who enjoy anthropomorphic animal/human hybrids in art and cosplay. A basic example may be someone who enjoys drawing human figures with a fox head and fox fur, and the vixen can talk and what not too. I'm not a furry myself so I don't want any angry furries to mob me for my possibly bad definition or something...

    Years of interwebs surfing gets you some pretty strange knowledge.

    It's actually much broader than monsieur puts it: a fur fetish (someone with a fur fetish is a furry) is someone with any sort of animal-based paraphilia. This ranges from people who have (usually consensual) sex with animals (or like to think about it, anyhow) to people who are titillated by anthropomorphic animals/human animal hybrids to people who like to dress up as animals and pretend to be animals (I believe this to be the smallest group, but the most sensationalized, appearing in such places as on CSI, where they were portrayed "yiffing" [frotting] in large groups to porn music).

    It's easily the most-mocked paraphilia (for this reason it might be kinda hard to find some, and this is probably why their forums are defensive.)

    Actually, a furry is a person who enjoys dressing up in an animal costume or like an animal and having sex in the costume.

    An animal character with human characteristics ( or anything non-human with human characteristics) is an anthropomorphic character.

    Most people who love that kind of art are Anthro-fans or Anthro-artists
