Furfag, also known as Furry Fag or Furry Faggot, is a derogatory term used by anti-furries, nonfurs, /b/tards, trolls, griefers 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.

Furries on /b/ have been seen replying to the insult with, "I've yiffed in hell. It was hot"[1], as well as the retort "Fuck in hell, skinfag."[2][3]

"Yiff in Hell...."[edit]

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 continuously 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 2007 Anthrocon /b/tard protest.[4]

The most commonly used macro is that of Disney's 1973 representation of the character Robin Hood trapped in the burning Castle of Nottingham bearing the term "Yiff in Hell, Furfags". The date of creation and user are unknown.
