Anthropomorphing would be making an animal more human, not the other way around, therefore the edit.

Approptiate or not[edit]

The term seems to be appropriate: it's discussed here. The concept is even more appropriate, dating back to 1998 (Furnetics, AWFR) and having a prefix in furcode (T). EvilCat 02:57, 25 September 2011 (EDT)

Is not in the term that the subject is inappropriate. It's the non-propagated use of this term/group, i.e. not long enough to be part of furry lore. The concept has always been there, not, again, this particular term and history of itself.
Why not FurWares (Furry Wetwares), Animans, GenFurs, FurryDNAers, Furmans, Genomefurs, FurSkinners, Animobeings?,... It's easy to come up with any zillion terms/groups names related to the initial concept, just like this one for example, another "forced" term/group looking for an article. We already have the overall concept covered here and there,... Some of hits are years old, and haven't been updated since =/ - Spirou 08:23, 25 September 2011 (EDT)
Then it's probably more appropriate to rename the article, but to which title? EvilCat 05:06, 26 September 2011 (EDT)
Could scatter the content of this to such articles as Genetic engineering, but considering the need for cleanup and provision of references, I'm not sure that would be helpful. -- Sine 19:38, 24 October 2011 (EDT)
I'm not seeing any wide useage of the term "Biofurs" and even less of "biological furries", although I didn't check Usenet. -- Sine 17:32, 7 March 2012 (EST)
No hits on AFF, will go ahead and delete it. It can be recreated if the term propagates - Spirou 20:34, 7 March 2012 (EST)

Ok, so the article about popular furry topic was deleted because of non-popular name :\ If somebody would search for more appropriate name, they would have found that the discussed article could have been merged with Physical transformation. EvilCat 19:48, 12 March 2012 (EDT)
