Me and my (ex)boyfriend have been having a dilemma, help me guys!

He doesn't seem to understand that Tigger, although based on a tiger, is a tigger.

He isn't a Tigger nor a Tiger, he's Triggered.

Well, let's look at this biologically:

Tiggers are constructed thusly:
Tops = made out of rubber.
Bottoms = made out of springs.
Physical characteristics = bouncy, trouncy, flouncy, and pouncy.
Behavioral characteristics = fun, fun, fun, fun, fun.

Tigers are constructed thusly:
Tops = teeth, fur, and muscle.
Bottoms = sharp retractable claws, fur, and muscle.
Physical characteristics = bouncy, pouncy, stalky, and sneaky.
Behavioral characteristics = fun, fun, run, run, kill.

So, while they do share certain elements, Tigger is most certainly a Tigger, and not a Tiger.

Actually, the reason why Tigger says he's a "tigger" and not a tiger is because that's what Chris possibly called tigers as a kid. Think about it! As little kids, we normally mispronounce things before we adapt ourselves to say the real word. Like, instead of saying "fish," we called them "fishies." Chris probably calls tigers, "tiggers," thus calling his stuffed tiger, "Tigger," even though he probably just un-creatively called his plush "Tiger." Heck, we do that with most things we name as little kids, like calling a toad, "Mr. Toad," or even just "Toad." Since Tigger was created as a figment of Chris' imagination, the reason why he corrects everybody to call him a "T-I-Double-Guh-Er" is because he'd rather pronounce "Tigers" as "Tiggers." If all of this doesn't blow your mind and prove to you guys that Tigger is really a tiger, I don't know what will.

While all of this is true, as a figment of the creations of a young boy I think that if Tigger calls himself a tigger then we should respect that.

Logically we should treat the species in the same way we deal with heffalumps and woozles because all characters in the universe of Winnie the Pooh know the species as that.

Although what it's based off of, as a child's imagination rewritten, I think that the characters in the hundred acre woods (the ones who live the imagination of Christopher) would know the species and universe best.

I can definitely agree with you there. Although a mere unimaginative adult would call Tigger a tiger in the real world, he will always be considered a tigger in the Winnie the Pooh universe in the same vein as allowing heffalumps and woozles to exist as their own species. It really depends on the mindset of a person to call Tigger a "tigger," and the only way one would see him as a tiger is if someone like Chris were to lose his imagination while growing up. In a way, Tigger's specimen definition can be a connection between whether or not your childlike innocence still lingers inside you, and if it does, it allows one's self to accept the fact that Tigger is a tigger. So in my heart, I know Tigger's a tigger, but to my logical adult mind, he's a tiger. (Boy, this topic turned into a philisophical one really fast! xD)

True, gotta agree with you there! I guess I'm just a lot more childlike then others, but I'm glad we can agree to disagree :3

Tigger never refers to himself as a tiger, but as a "Tigger"

Or if we want to start thinking logically:
We know he's based on a tiger stuffed animal, but species seems to relate more to the in-universe consideration.

He's an anthropomorphic stuffed tiger, no matter what he's based off of I feel like it's only right to agree with what he says.
Ultimately, there's only one Tigger and he's fictional so I doubt we can change his mind
