Short answer: those deemed “strange” or “weird” by the normies.
In the context of mainstream society, humies are “different,” detached, isolated, and/or lonely humanoid-earthlings who strive to retain and foster their alienated interests by resisting conventional types of food, art, and music. They are counter-cultural and possibly otherworldly beings.
The nickname “humies” is typically utilized from the interrelated perspectives of 3 online personas:
1. From entertainers who use “humies” to rally or validate their followers (hip hop artists, educators, streamers)
2. From gamers who use “humies” to identify humanlike characters in fantasy/SciFi games (Warhammer, World of Warcraft, Apex Legends, Destiny 2, Dungeons & Dragons, Final Fantasy, God of War, Black Desert Online, The Sims 4, Guild Wars 2, Dragon Age Inquisition, Dark Souls 3, Fallout 4, Grand Theft Auto Online, The Elder Scrolls Online, Dragon’s Dogma Online, etc.)
3. From pet-personification profiles (dogs, cats, etc.) or “furry” cosplay profiles that use “humies” to identify opposite profiles
