    A reminder that the CO population has a lot of artists in it o3o at least that's what it turned out to be

    Considering all 4 corners feature furries, hopefully nowhere.

    Considering how many furry costume sets came out recently and the fact that you can always see at least 2 furries no matter where you look... I think we fall on all four corners simultaneously...and the axis between them are all covered in fluids u3u
    animal character != furry - you need to learn the definition of terms before you go speaking out of ignorance...and so does most of the planet's population​​

    animal characters aren't furry? then what's with all the fur? is my dog no longer furry?

    Uh...bananas dancing the foxtrot while using big words? ...peaches rubbing against each other lewdly? ...or is it the art thing...

    oh wait no, it's none of that. You actually have to tell me what new meanings you're using for those words because now we live in a world where everyone is using personal definitions for all words. FINE then my entire vocabulary is composed of the words Dark Souls being used for every single word in existence! Dark souls. Dark souls dark souls dark souls, dark souls dark souls. Dark souls dark souls? Dark souls!

    Just pick an Artstyle and GO! This chart can literally apply on everything with an Stylistic choice. From Anthro to Humans to Monsters to Robots to Toasters to your shitty plastic Waifus with the personality of a cardbox tiger-35.gif

    Furry has become such a Bastardized and homogenized Term over the years! The correct Term is still ANTHRO
    What are you gonna call a character with No Fur? Furry? They DON'T EVEN HAVE FUR!
    • Anthro Mammal with Fur chars are called Furries
    • Anthro Birds chars are called Avians
    • Anthro Reptiles chars are called Scalies
    • Anthro Insects chars are called Insectoids
    • Anthro Plant chars Flora Fauna
    Just call them Anthro. It's the Correct Term and has a Massive range! Even Insects and Plants can apply!

    If you want to use definitions, then "anthropomorphization" refers to the process of ascribing human characteristics to non-humans, not human shapes. For instance, claiming your car doesn't start one morning because it's "tired" would be a case of anthropomorphizing your car.

    However, we've been informed that words have no objective meaning and in fact mean exactly what the person using them wants them to mean, so instead froggy leftist pancakes.

    If you think about it, objectivity doesn't exist because the only way for something to be objective means removing all subjectivity which means removing all non-omnipotent observers from the situation, but once you do that there's nobody to even think about the concept of objectivity to give it meaning. Nothing is nothing but it can't be nothing because nothing is nothing!

    How did you arrive at that from what I said? I did say that words have no objective meaning, but that doesn't mean that its meaning is what the speaker wants. The meaning of a word is whatever is communicated by using the word, so to the degree it has a preferred meaning, it's whatever the majority of listeners will understand it to mean.

    There's what the speaker (if attempting to be truthful; i.e. not playing word games like a politician) thinks/hopes a word means, and then there is what the listeners understand it to mean.

    At some point an objective meaning has to be defined. I guess maybe that's when a certain percentage of cultural undertow takes hold. The claim that words have no objective meaning is actually false. Humans determine objectivity, hence words can have an objective meaning. Yes, that means that objectivity is actually subjective, but that's the weird world of perception based on senses that give us input that we cannot verify as absolute that we live in.

    Why? You can make objective statements about how people interpret a given word, but that doesn't mean the word has an objective meaning.

    The rest of my post answers that. To put it more simply: because if we don't we can't communicate using words. Not sure if ya heard, but doing that is kind of a big deal for the entirety of human civilization, so kinda important.

    Philosophy students. They'll starve to death next to a smorgasbord while arguing over whether "taste" is a real thing.

    Sure we can. Words don't need an objective meaning to be useful for communication, they just need an agreed on meaning.

    That's how objectivity works.
    It pretty much is, everywhere except philosophy departments. My inclinations are more toward engineering - accepting the concept of an external reality is part of that.

    Yes, and I'm sure someday we'll figure out a way to sense that external reality in absolute, undeniable terms. Until then, bridges and power plants are just constructs of consensual reality. Also when we figure how to do that, philosophy pretty much dies.
