Just to nitpick, unless you know of some which show the characteristics of sentience, linear problem solving, tool use and conceptualiztion of abstract thought then any depiction of a humanoid animal with these traits is
projecting human qualities on non-humans.
BloodEye, whomever refers to anthromorphs as "furs" to speak of them as other than human hasn't known anyone with mediterranean blood. Trust me on this, "furry" describes them too!
Now that I'm thinking about it, isn't the term derogatory and openly hostile? For your consideration, knowing that many anthro back stories include periods of genocidal (varying degrees of the true use of this word) violence, wouldn't more barbarous times include the taking of pelts from rivals as both proof and trophy? In light of this, how would a modern anthromorph take to be called a fur? It'd be akin to walking up to a cow and saying "Hi, flank steaks!" except the cow wouldn't understand and probably moo at you before belching up some cud to re-chew.
Uh-huh, I put way
too much thought into trivial things.
