I only had a vague understanding of what was meant by "furry" back then. In fact, I still only have a vague understanding, because it has so many different meanings to so many different people that I basically just stick to using it to describe things that are literally covered in fur.
In Tedd's case, however, he thinks half-animal people are cool, and that women with animal-like features can be attractive. He is rather specific in what sort of forms appeal to him, however, and he generally doesn't find women with animal-shaped heads to be attractive unless they're like those cartoon characters who are so stylized that you don't really think about them as having animal heads, but then someone draws a photo-realistic rendering of them and you're all like "no why would you do that that's not how they look you're fired"?
Quick reminder that I'm specifically talking about what Tedd likes, and not what any other hypothetical people might like. Yes. 100% Tedd. Not anyone else. Totally. And for reals.
