What’s a furry? Furries are people who like to dress up in animal costumes and enjoy role-playing as their animal “fursona”. Sure, not all furries actually dress up, some are just fans of the furry world, or only role-play online. Within the furry community, there’s a lot of distinction in the finer points of the identity, but for our purposes, let’s just say it’s people who wear the fur suits and people who are furry admirers.
