Furry terminology - what do you think?

If you're new to furry, you may well have noticed that (like most other fandoms, I suppose) this one has its share of jargon. "Fursona" is a classic example - although some people don't like it and use "character" or "avatar" instead, it has become very widely used. On the other hand, "phenotype", in the sense of the species you identify with, seems almost to have died out now.

What do you think about these terms? Do you embrace them as a way to help you feel closer to the community at large, dislike them as another layer of potential confusion, or not really mind one way or the other. All comments welcome, but especially from newcomers to furry. =:)
