I'm not sure I follow what you're saying here - a language barrier, perhaps. Are you saying that there are some who use these terms as insults and that those who do this tend to be homophobic and/or far right? In general, furries tend to be more LGBTQ-friendly and on average are more left-leaning than the general population, at least in the USA (I think IFRP has covered this, though I don't have their research in front of me). If "furry" and "fursona" are being used in such a manner, we would want to find reliable sources covering such usage before including it in Wikipedia. mwalimu59 (talk) 16:05, 10 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]
As you have already been told on your talk page, Wikipedia article talk pages are not a forum. Either make an actual proposal for editing, directly backed up by published reliable sources, or find somewhere other than Wikipedia to complain. AndyTheGrump (talk) 23:55, 10 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]
What. I'm a furry myself and I have never heard of anyone saying that the terms "Furry" and "Fursonas" are homophobic or right-wing. In fact, we find "furry" and "fursona" the proper terms. While technically there is also "anthro" that's mainly referring to making animals look human-like. ― Blaze WolfTalkBlaze Wolf#6545 02:01, 11 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]
