About "FurFag," sorry, but the article is more in reference to the demeneaning aspect of the term,... This is not a situation like about the use of the work N***** as a demenaning term vs n***** as part of a culture colloquialism


This comes across as dishonest. The reverted entry stated that the term was often used as a joke, which is factual. Supposedly, information on Wikifur is supposed to be nuetral. Your revert makes it appear you're trying to spin a certain point of view and give the term an added gravitas. I also don't understand why you made your explanation under the author's IP, where it could be easily missed, instead of in the discussion of the term its self. 733 21:08, 15 December 2006 (UTC)

I don't think Wikifur should even have this article. Tretonin 21:15, 15 December 2006 (UTC)

The phrase is common enough to be included (Google for "Yiff in hell furfags") and the term has become associated with Furry, for better or worse. 733 21:23, 15 December 2006 (UTC)
I think we should have the article, no reason not to, but we should be clear that it is a derogatory (and IMHO juvenile, frankly) term used by trolls, goons, and the like (you'll not catch me giving them the lofty moniker anti-furries). Whether they claim to be joking or not is of little relevance. Simba B 21:41, 15 December 2006 (UTC)
I've seen furries on Taps and FurryMUCK call themselves and other Furries "furfags". I think this is starting to evolve into the Furry version of "queer", where to one group it's an insult and to others, it's a badge of identification. 733 21:52, 15 December 2006 (UTC)
Yes. Shouldn't we mention the FCTC, the trolls who make vids with this title on youtube.Blastthebat 00:14, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

The term "-fag" isn't neccsarily mean an insult or demeaning term on the /4/chan or annonymous community. Don't get me wrong I am not assosiated with Anonymous or so but I am well familiar by their terms. Understand what some words we may find vulgar to an extend, because Anonymous are... anonymous, they see some words to a level extend that doesn't offend them. After all they have referd even the very few people they respect as fags, not as an insult but as a simple to honoured title. Anonymous, /4/chan and whoever use the term "furfag" may be using it as an offense, but it can simply mean those who are furry. They call Mark bunker, a guy who supports Chanology and only guy who has some command over thearmy of Anonymous and liked by them, a "Beardfag". not as an insult but simply because he has a beard. Though "Furfag" was probably made to insult furries, these days it is with the rest of the line of -fag titles all with neutral meaning. The true upset of this discussion isn't the word but how it's used.--Mystic Monkey 22:35, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

Adding interwiki[edit]

An article on the term is also present on the italian WikiFur at this page: http://it.wikifur.com/wiki/Furfag . Considering the protection added, is it possible for the staff to add the interwiki link to the english page? Valery91Thunder (talk) 12:53, 11 January 2015 (EST)
