Insanity is a fun state of mind. I can amuse myself and have my friends wanting to get me a straight jacket and a padded room.

I have a friend who knows a lot of furries, he dates furries, hangs out with them but isn't one. How he describes them, sounds awfully familiar to how therians identify with their animal spirit. According to him, the only real difference is that furries dress up like their 'animal' as well.

However, you tell a therian they're a furrie and many resent it completely. Furries seem to be seen on the same level as people who lie about sharing their soul with an animal however there is as much evidence of most of the furry population being therian as there is self-declared therians of being therian.

I thought furries were the guys(and girls, we don't want to be politically incorrect now.) in the fur suits, some of which feel the need to express a sexual fetish of boning anthropomorphic animals via sexually implicit images and sex in said suits.

And therians were those who believe/feel that they are animal spirits trapped in a human body as opposed to those with regular shamanistic inclinations to hold a spirit animal as thier totem or someone with a familiar in this world.

Hehe. Who knows? There might be quite a few furries on here that we don't even know about.  :-)

I understand what you're saying Ladygriffin and that is a common practice among furry tabletop gamers but there are those who attribute themselves to an animal simply because it feels right. These kinds of furries use the same 'alter-ego' in tabletops at conventions and furry gathos. However many furries do have multiple animal personalities, a few gaming aliases, artist alias etc but there will always be one animal 'ego' they relate themselves too and don't use as an alias.

In fact, some of the furries I know suit up simply because they feel it brings out their inner animal.

I'm not saying all furries think this way but there are quite a few.
