The nickname “humies” is typically utilized from the interrelated perspectives of 3 online personas:
1. From creatives (hip hop artists, educators, streamers, etc.) who use “humies” to rally or validate their followers.
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 profile types.
