Furfag, also known as Furry Fag or Furry Faggot, is a derogatory term used by anti-furries, nonfurs, /b/tards and/or goons to describe a member of the furry community, a condescending way to "acknowledge" a fur's presence during online discussions, and/or a real life visual antagonizer (as a tag, sign, or other types of visual media), in an effort to either taunt, insult, or provoke a reaction out of the person(s) targeted.
However, it is also used among friends as a joking term of endearment.
Even though the term is a portmanteau of the words "furry" and "fag" ("fag" being a derogatory term for "homosexual,") it is not usually intended to imply anything about the target's own sexuality, but rather about their participation in the furry fandom, indicating that being a furry is just as "distasteful" as being a homosexual.
The suffix -fag may be applied to other terms in a similar manner.
"Yiff in Hell...."
The most common use of the term in a phrase or image macro is the text meme "Yiff in Hell, Furfags", used by the above mentioned groups as a way of disrupting discussion forums and chat rooms (web based or IRC), and when vandalizing pages on WikiFur and furry-related pages on Wikipedia (often written in all-caps, and copy/pasted in a continuous repeated sequence).
It has occasionally been seen at furry gatherings or conventions in the form of graffiti, printed media (stickers, flyers, etc,) or signs and placards, such as the ones used at the Anthrocon /b/tard protest.
