    Rate the Song then Post Another

    5/10. I acknowledge that the song is beautiful, but my personal enjoyment of it is rather low as I am not one for slow songs. Since we're doing theme songs....

    Never have I ever

    I have participated in two demonstrations. I conducted a 1-person counter demonstration against transphobic Target Rebukers back in 2016; admittedly, I was not civil to them what so ever, but it got the point across and they left. I participated in a demonstration against the Church of Scientology in Tampa, FL. Never have I ever been out of my home country.

  4. A few more updates; yay! Moods System installed. You can now select a mood near where you check your private messages on the site. Moods will display on posts, near the bottom-center of your avatar. on profiles, and on the member-card. VIP users can also edit the "Feeling" field which will display in the same spots. More mood graphics will be added in the future! Date of Birth enforcement has been turned on. All users will now be required to input a date of birth, including the year. Once your date of birth has been set, it is locked. Your date of birth can only be changed by a member of the staff team if you set it incorrectly. This is necessary to prevent abuse. Your age and date of birth are only displayed to staff members. A privacy policy has been added. A bug allowing users to submit things twice has been fixed.
  5. Because of your suggestion and because they seemed to slightly impact thread loading times, I have removed the profile picture from appearing near the user avatar on threads. I have also temporarily disabled the expanded side-panel until I fix the extra "blank space" it is creating on mobile view.
  6. Zoophilia/Zoosexuality is the sexual and/or romantic attraction towards an animal. It has nothing to do with the otherkin community, although, unfortunately, some otherkin identify as zoosexual. My stance on the matter is and always has been that to act upon such feelings constitutes animal abuse and sexual assault in all cases; animals cannot consent. I am not attracted to actual wolves in this way, but I do find it easier to connect with other wolf therians in a romantic or friendship context. Hope this helps!

    PSA: idistuple

    It appears that an infamous ex-otherkin turned troll has resurfaced on Tumblr after a fairly long hiatus. idistuple which is shorthand for “I Dislike Stupid People” is a blog operated by ex-dragonkin Vencorr. He’s still posting hateful material against non-binary individuals as well as otherkin who don’t meet his narrow definition of valid. Lately, he’s been joining otherkin Discord servers in order to post screenshots on his blog to mock and harass them. While he’s such a “good guy” about it by offering plausible deniability that harassment is indeed his motive by removing names, he posts enough screenshots that identification of those involved is trivial. In order to prevent your community from being harassed: Don’t be a low hanging fruit In one of his recent posts, he states that a Discord server he infiltrated had absolutely no membership or joining requirements. An application may put off some users, but quality over quantity prevents stuff like this. Don’t be afraid to remove nonconstructive members If there’s a member that does nothing but stir the pot, it might be time to put on your boots and kick them out. Blacklist him Block him, give him no further attention, and encourage your friends to do the same. View the full post @ Naia's Den

    Terminology & Lexicon

    I have implemented your suggestions in the latest update. Please let me know if you have any other suggestions!
  12. As some of you may be aware, there are some issues with the bones system that began on 01/03/2019. The system is currently down while I debug it. All data up until this point is saved, however; you will NOT earn bones for posts during this time. Another announcement will be made when the system is back up. Thank you.

    Issues with bones?

    Hello, I am aware of the issues with the bones system. They began occurring after I installed an update last night. I'm working on a fix to the problem.

    Terminology & Lexicon

    While it is by no means an exhaustive listing, this article provides a list of terminology that is commonly used in the otherkin community, as well as definitions for said terms. Otherkin - People who identify either partially or wholly as one or more non-human beings, entities, or concepts in a psychological or spiritual manner. Kintype - The term "kintype" refers to the type of being a particular otherkin identifies as. For example, "I am otherkin and I identify a a robot. My kintype is Robot." Transspecies - The term "transspecies" has been used to describe individuals who identify as otherkin or therians. This term is considered offensive to some in the LGBTQ+ community, and therefore controversial within the community. Polymorph - A polymorph is an energy being with no set form. Instead, the polymorph can take on multiple forms. Wishkin - Wishkin is a derogatory term referring to an individual who wishes they were otherkin, or who pretends to be otherkin. The term is primarily used on Tumblr. Copingkin - An individual who consciously takes on a non-human identity in order to help cope with various aspects of life. This could be to cope with mental illness, trauma, stress or other difficulties. Conceptkin - The term conceptkin refers to an individual who identifies as a concept rather than a being. For example, one who identifies as a thunderstorm. There is a lot of debate in the community if this is a valid identification. Tumblrkin - Tumblrkin is a derogatory term that refers to people who identify as otherkin, but base the identification on information obtained solely from Tumblr. Therianthrope/Therianthropy - A therianthrope is a person who is, feels, or believes they are, in part or whole, (non-physically) one or more currently alive or once-living non-human animals on an integral, personal level. Theriotype - The term "theriotype" refers to species a particular therian identifies as. For example, "Shiro is a therian and identifies as a wolf and fox. His theriotypes are wolf and fox." Cladotherianthropy - A cladotherian does not have a specific theriotype. They instead identify as a family or group of animals instead of a specific species. An example of this would be identifying as “canid” instead of “wolf”. Contherianthropy - A contherian is a therianthrope that does not experience shifting, but instead has their theriotype fully integrated with their base personality. Vacillant Therianthropy - A vacillant therian is a therianthrope that is constantly in a shifted state, to varying degrees. Informally, the terms "suntherian" and "syntherian" may be used instead. Polytherian/Polywere - A polywere is an individual with multiple theriotypes. Theriomythic - This term refers to someone who identifies as an animal from myth. Example: Gryphons. Shifting - The term "shifting" is primarily used in reference to therianthropy (but also applies to otherkin) and describes when an individual 'becomes' more like their theriotype/kintype in a non-physical manner. (M)ental Shift - A shift in which a shifter takes on the mentality of their theriotype(s)/kintype(s). (D)ream Shift - A shift in which a shifter shifts into their theriotype or kintype while dreaming. (Ph)antom Shift - A shift in which a shifter feels a “phantom limb” sensation."; For example, the shifter may feel ears and a tail, or paws instead of hands. (C)ameo Shift - A shift into a being that is not the shifter's theriotype or kintype. (S)pirtual Shift - This is a rather vague term to describe any sort of shift with a spiritual undertone. It most frequently refers to when a shifer's Aura, Astral body, or spiritual self takes the shape of their theriotype or kintype. (Se)nsory Shift - A shift in which the shifter experiences a state of perceived heightened or reduced sense of awareness often in-line with their theriotype or kintype; eg. wolves may claim better sense of smell, etc. This type of shifting relies on perception of information, as it is not possible to smell, see, hear, and so forth beyond what is humanly possible. (A)ura Shift - A shift where a shifter's Aura (specifically) takes the shape of their theriotype or kintype. (Bi)location Shift - A shift in which the shifter's theriotype or kintype leaves their “human” body and materializes elsewhere; It is very similar to an “out of body experience”, but instead of the “spirit body” being the human body, it is the body of the theriotype or kintype of the shifter. (As)tral Shift - A shift that takes place in the astral plane. It is commonly used to refer to shifting which takes place during Astral projection. (Be)serker Shift - A shift in which the shifter loses control of themselves and begins to act more like their kintype than human. This type of shift could be an extreme mental shift, or any shift combined with a manifestation of mental illness. The general community consensus is that these types of shifts are extremely unhealthy. (P)hysical Shift - When one physically shifts into their theriotype or kintype. It is scientifically impossible to P-Shift. Fictionkin - The term fictionkin refers to an individual who's kintype is a character or being from a work of fiction. Fictotype - Similar to "kintype". The term "fictotype" refers to the particular type of being a fictionkin identifies as. This term is especially used for fictionkin who identify as human characters, as the term "kintype" does not apply; otherkin must be non-human identities. Factkin - The term factkin refers to an individual who's kintype is a specific named being (usually a person) who is either alive or was once alive. For example, a factkin may choose to identify as President John F. Kennedy. This type of identification is widely considered to be controversial in the otherkin community. Factotype - Similar to "kintype". The term "factotype" refers to the particular being that a factkin identifies as. This term is especially used for factkin who identify as human beings, as the term "kintype" does not apply; otherkin must be non-human identities. Other-Hearted - A person who is other-hearted identifies WITH one or more non-human beings, rather than AS. Animal-Hearted - A person who is other-hearted identifies WITH one or more non-human animals, rather than AS. Heart-type - The type of animal or being the individual identifies with. Kith/Kithtype - Alternate terms for other-hearted and heart-type. Awakening - The term “awakening” refers to the process of discovering that you are otherkin and/or therian and the process of discovering your kintypes or theriotypes. Although it's an extremely common experience, not all otherkin go through an awakening. Plurality - Plurality is the state in which a person shares their body with another being/soul/headmate etc. Greymuzzle - The term "greymuzzle" is a term used almost exclusively in the therianthropy, otherkin, and furry communities to refer to people who have been in the community for an extended period of time. Greymuzzles are generally older folks (above 30) with significant community history. Howl - A howl is a gathering or meetup of therians and/or otherkin.
