Would furries use "animal" insults?
« on: February 13, 2016, 11:09:30 pm »
As humans, a lot of us will occasionally use insults involving animals. An example would be saying something like "Ugh, she's such a pig." The question is, would anthropormphic animals use animal insults too, or would it be considered too "speciesist?"

What do you guys think?

Huh, thats actually a really interesting question. I would imagine it would work out so that using 'em would be improper but people would still throw insults like that around.

Lol I can picture a "That's so human of you" or something, but I feel like in a situation, one would just use "animal" insults as well. But that is interesting to think about.

I can just picture someone calling a squirrel-based fursona nutty  :fox-;):

"Bruh, you're as weak as a human"

"You have the body of a hippo, but you're a lion"

I could see it happening. It's like how we insult each other with human stuff, like throwing like a girl. Or maybe there are insults that relate to the animal.

"I eat rocks that taste better than your cooking," says the crocodile.

Speceism would definitely be a problem in the furry world.

Depends how the furries viewed humans, which common notions they held. Also I imagine a dog/cat furry would say "omg you look as unfurred as a human" or something.

I'm sure they won't use animal insults, it's like saying "Ugh, she's such a/an (insert race)" in the human world, and it's pretty rude to whoever they compare the person/animal being insulted to, so I'm pretty sure they'll just use adjectives like "dirty" or "rude"!

I believe they would but theyd be considered more offesive/derogatory terms than jokes. Us humans are only one species yet we already split ourselves us and discriminate based on traits like gender, race and sexuality. I can only imagine in a furry world speciesism being a huge problem

That's what I was thinking.
We can't even get along as one species, I don't think that would stop if we were all turned into furries overnight. Some insults would probably still be used as jokes, but I can see others turning into derogatory terms.

yeah, they would still use animal insults. they would just be seen as a lot worse than a human calling someone a cow.

      Considering how sensitive people are today, someone would be very offended. I personally don't use animal insults because I personally believe they're too inmature and they're not clever. Some people would probably still use them no matter what. People will never be the exact same for as long as time continues. There would always be someone. The only problem I could see with the continuation of such insults is that they'd be too litteral. We compare people to that species of animal when we insult them with such a remark, but what do you do when that's actually their species? It wouldn't seem as much of an insult then. There would be someone who'd be very offended by the remarks too, and they'd tell people to check themselves while they'd feel personally inclined to use the same very insults they told someone else not to use. It's basic sociology from the modern day that I believe would decide if they'd still be accepted or not. People we live around are always very interesting because we all think differently. No one thinks the same. It would be the same on this issue. Some would be fine with it while others would be offended by it.

Now that I think of it, it would be more like discrimination rather than insults.

thats the moment when you realize that maybe in "real furry world" they still have animals (i can't say it's human, because creation never end. posibility never stop to amaze us)

thats why human makes "god".. to explain what they can't explain, i'm not to "god" in religion.. but as the highest creator, bc i could be go crazy to explain the unexplainable

I think from a Darwinist point of view, furries would be somewhere in between animal and human. So yes. I believe so.

I can just picture them all using Warrior Cats insults.

"You're so fox-hearted!"

"You mouse-brain!"
