I'm sorry guys, I know this type of thing had to pop up a few times before but i want to learn more about this fandom and need to ask a few questions that are a little more personal before i decided if I actually am a furry or would fit in with the community. besides I would assume a thread like this could help other people.
I have a question on what exactly a fursona is, my understanding is that it is a furry character that you use to represent yourself. but is this character supposed to be you with a furry body, is it your inner animal, is it your self idealized, is it a fictional character that you roleplay as, is it a spiritual thing, is it practically human, is it highly animalistic, is it your avatar, or is it some mix of these things/ none of these things
my other question is online do furries express them selves as their fursona in regular speach, is it just for roleplay, or something else.
Sorry if this bothers you but i do need a lot of clarification on what a furry is supposed to do and the fursona if you could help me out i would be very grateful
