Were you being mean? Probably not. Was your post based on ignorance? Yes.
Now, to answer the OP's question, if my profile pic (not my avatar; the pic for my profile) is any indication, I am technically a furry, since the broadest definition includes an appreciation for anthropomorphic animals; I certainly draw them a lot and I do have a wolf hat and a wolf tail and I have worn these things together on days other than Halloween.
However, to open another can of delicious worms, instead of being a furry, I am actually a Therian.
Things just got weird....
