Therianthropy

Articles which relate specifically to the therianthropy community.
The decline of personal writings within the otherkin community is a phenomena spoken of often by older members of the community: gone are the days where most otherkin had a personal website and preferred forum of which to lurk, posting thoughts, anecdotes, and guides based on their own observations and experiences. The remnants of many of the articles and writings from this time can be found scattered across the Internet, hoarded by some otherkin as valuable resources and offering glimpses...
Something that I have noticed about theriomythic identities is that they often straddle the line between the otherkin, therian, and fictionkin community. This is to say that this specific form of identity seems to traditionally be used by individuals who would, on a basic level, be considered to be otherkin due to identifying on a non-physical level as something partially or entirely non-human--and yet, due to their own experiences and understanding of their identity, find the term otherkin...

Many people, especially (but certainly not exclusively) those coming from social media...

Note: This article was originally written by former Kinmunity member "Ashenfall". Shifting is an integral part of being otherkin/fictionkin to a large portion of the communities. Though certainly not essential to consider oneself otherkin or fictionkin, you’d be hard pressed to find a place where it isn’t mentioned or discussed in some form. In this article I will attempt to go into detail about the various types of shifts often spoken about in the community, in a bid to educate and...
