Centaurs, Mermaid, Yetis, Vampires, Minos,....[edit]

Article is based in a subject that is mythologically mainstream. It did not originate within the furry fandom, and is trumped by anthropomorphic bovines. In use by furry as a sentient being, is as the article points out "Minotaurs as a whole are quite uncommon in the furry fandom", which is also the only reference to furry in this extensive and well covered article.

A minotaur is just an bovine head tackled to the body of a human, with no parts other that each section protruding from the other (hair tuffs, tails, hooves). Well written, the Mermaid one was quite researched too, but that didn't make either one furry - Spirou 19:36, 30 December 2009 (UTC)

I'm currently working at Minotaur article in ru-WikiFur, and that article was initially created by other user, which confirms interest. Minotaurs frequent fantasy games as a playable race, and us such they allow as to play furry characters in mainstream worlds. These races are not just anthropomorphic bovines, they have history and culture based, more or less so, on original myth. I actually like how minotaur race changed over the course of D&D editions, from cursed humans to bestial underground race to demon worshippers %) (The cursed ones I find most interesting, they present greatest roleplaying opportunities.)
Also, although Greek Minotaur is depicted as bull-headed man or man-headed bull, fantasy depictions are very often full-body hybrids, a.k.a. classic furries. I think the article can be expanded, but surely it surely is appropriate. EvilCat 11:31, 31 December 2009 (UTC)
P.S. Well, come on! Try to play a minotaur in a usual gaming group, you'll be called a furry in no time! EvilCat 11:36, 31 December 2009 (UTC)

Article update #1 (March 3, 2011)[edit]

(Delete/keep). Set at tie (mainstream created vs of furry interest)

Keep, though it could do with some trimming. -- Sine 15:38, 23 June 2011 (EDT)
This article has furry section that Raptor lacks. Why would it be inappropriate? Furry culture is based upon culture elements invented before furry. EvilCat 10:36, 4 October 2011 (EDT)
