Okay, this is pushing the envelope open for something (minuscule) to present,... Non-common furry terms to begin with anyways =P Agree on inappropriate/delete - Spirou 21:06, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

Hey, I put this up here because I wanted to understand which terms people would find offensive (after an online chat with a few of my friends). Since there is such a large variety of fursonas, it is difficult to know which terms to use and which ones not to use. The two terms I put up are the only ones I know (I'm an equine fur and most of my friends are Phins). I thought it would be beneficial to start a list. I did some research on Google, but there doesn't seem to be such a list in existence. Brallion 21:59, 23 January 2009 (UTC)
"Hey, I put this up here because I wanted to understand which terms people would find offensive",... Evening, regarding this article, Wikifur is not a poll venue, that would fit more on a Wikifur forum page. "it is difficult to know which terms to use and which on" Again, Wikifur is also not a public service page, the article should be relate to the context of Racial slurls,...
...Which bring the point that "Racial slurs" is not precisely the proper way to name this article,... "Racial" would indicates "Race" (Human race vs Animal race,)... "Specism" would be more appropriate. Now, "Slurls"... "Stereotypes" would be more fitting. but even changing the title to Specism stereotypes, the content is not (at this time) not furry-common across the fandom, so not warranting an article (yet), hence the <appropriate> tag. - Spirou 05:20, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
I'm not necessarily for deletion; instead, I suggest placing this article under your username, as in User:Brallion/Speciesist stereotypes, until it can be better developed and verifiable as a standalone article. --RayneVanDunem 06:13, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
If y'all aren't crazy about this page, let me make a suggestion then. Perhaps we could start a species specific jargon/slurs/terminology page. There are a LOT of furries out there who can REALLY get into their characters *swishes tail and nibbles on some grass*. It makes sense that slang and speech patterns would develop. Maybe we could have a list of terms by species that furries commonly use. That would be a more innocent place for these specism stereotypes Brallion 19:40, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
We already have Category:Terms (EDIT: and Category:Furspeech terms for terms that have endemically furry-specific definitions), if that's what you're asking. --RayneVanDunem 19:42, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
Sort of. I'm really interested in a list by species of phrases and terms that they use. For example, I'm an equine fur. I use animal sounds like *whinnies* *nickers* *snorts* and I can refer food as "bales" And I can get offended when someone uses the word "glue" in a derogatory manner. These are just a few examples. And that is for me, an equine. I have a lot of friends who are phins, and they all have their own speak, too. Brallion 19:53, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
I've got an idea. How about a Mannerisms and Speak topic in each of the animal pages? Brallion 23:11, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

Article update #1 (April 17 2009)[edit]

Updating the entry's appropriateness status. Keep or delete?. Still voting on Delete - Spirou 03:17, 18 April 2009 (UTC)

I don't really seeing this as needing a whole article, if it's needed at all. Delete. Maybe leave a redirect to somewhere if it would make sense navigationally. --Rat 06:47, 18 April 2009 (UTC)
