I always assumed the reason for this was just a "lost in translation" thing; in the native language of the furry the word for whatever they are can only be translated to "human"; and since the author is writing everything in english the furries call themselves human. It is a little bit like how in an alien world, you are the alien; except in reverse. Or perhaps kinda like how the most "humane" thing to do often isn't what most humans would do.
