    Otherkin FAQ

    Short answer: No. Long answer: Definitely not. It’s impossible to diagnose an entire, extremely diverse community with a single overarching disorder or disorder symptom, first of all. On top of that, given that many otherkin will openly admit that their beliefs or hypotheses could very well be...

    On the Dearth of Otherkin Writings

    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...

    On Theriomythics, Divinity, and a Mythical Ternary

    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...

    Alterhuman Pet Peeves

    I decided to make a list of things that I’ve seen in the otherkin community that irritate me (creative I know /j) Note: I, in no way, hold any ill will or intend any offense to those who relate to anything in this list. 1. Elitism (Part 1) For whatever reason, I’ve seen people with otherkin...

    Falsities of Fae

    Note: This article was originally written by former Kinmunity member "Nyht Myst". We get asked the same question or hear the same comments about fae over and over again to the point it makes our blood boil and we wish we could scream it out to the world that isn't true, its a misconception, a...

    What's Therianthropy?

    So, what exactly is a therian, anyway? Therianthropy is categorized by a deep integral or personal belief that you, are in some way, a non-human animal. External factors (being hairy, having heightened senses, barking, howling, etc.) are irrelevant to whether you’re a therian or not...

    Common Biases

    This is meant to touch on some common biases I see crop up a lot on tumblr, new otherkin, etc. Note that 'bias' doesn't necessarily mean a heavily slanted extreme opinion, but often just an illogical opinion that an argument should not be based on if it wishes to stand firm. Bias is building the...

    Introductory Guide to Spiritual Otherkinity

    There are nearly an infinite number of personal spiritual beliefs that are held worldwide to this day. Although personal spiritual beliefs are highly subjective and personal, the rules are hardly “anything goes” when it comes to spiritual Otherkinity. Otherkinity is characterized by identifying...

    On "Astral Limbs" and "Phantom Limbs"

    Note: This article was originally written by former Kinmunity member "Ashenfall". In my time in the community I have seen many common misconceptions younger and newer members have fallen into through confusion and uncertainty. I could perhaps write a huge article on so many of these, but I've...

    Of People Who Identify As Plants

What otherkin specifically identify as can vary greatly, though animal-identified people (called specifically therians for Earth animals or animalkin for animals in general) are some of the most common. Less common...
