I've been active in the main Therian Amino for 4 years now and was even staff there for a year, and in my honest opinion, it's passed it's climax already and is slowly becoming bland and inactive. It became hella toxic recently due to a couple of the (now ex) leaders ended up letting their power go to their heads, one of which was mentioned in another reply about how endogenic systems were being invalidated and weren't even allowed to call themselves systems, it was awful.
BUT, both leaders have retired now and I have faith in most of the staff that remain ^^
Only issues now are just that the place is slowly going down in activity and the vibes there are just sort of... eh now for me. There's a leader there that I'm not too fond of cause they remind me of those old leaders, and a very active member there that also reminds me of the old leaders and I'm pretty worried that the member will be promoted to staff there
Other aminos I'm not fond of at all honestly. There's a lot of people who either "kin for fun" or define being a therian as "being connected to animals" and you get labelled a gatekeeper for correcting them, so i avoid the other communities.
I would not reccomend therian amino. The staff think they are doctors who can decide who has dissosiative disorders or who doesnt, and will accuse you of "bullying" should you not agree with everything they say or stick up for yourself. I was silent about my opinion on endogenic systems (which they are against) but was pried by staff on multiple occasions, only for them to punish me because I had a differing opinion from them.
While discovering if we were a traumagenic system after going almost a year thinking we were endogenic, we were accused of "faking symptoms" and banned from talking about plurality altogether. It caused us a lot of stress and I don't want to see others get hurt the way we did.
