To be completely honest I don’t know why many other Therians still buy and support the buying and marketing of real animal tails from fur farms.
I mean, I’m a Wolfkin and I enjoy wearing my own tail out in public once in awhile to put awareness out there but I wear a tail that I’ve made from…

Thank the UNIVERSE that you made this post, cause I don’t have the guts to do so myself, but I think you are 100% right on this aspect..
I don’t get it. Therians are aiding in the probably illegal killing of their own kind. I wear tails that I make of wool also, and it’s a PERFECTLY GOOD substitute.

wolven-child said: Not only is that illegal to happen, but the fact that people message you saying they have dogs ready for your purpose, is extremely offensive and degrading in my opinion. Where do they get of thinking they can say things like that?

Note that bestiality isn’t…

I use my dog as a tool…
Of ULTIMATE CUTENESS, to get friends…..

A therian is the even more mental cousin of the otherkin. A therian is like an otherkin, in that they believe they have a strong connection to an animal. However, therians do not just believe they bear animal souls, they believe they are literally part animal. They may have "mental shifts" where their thought process becomes that of an animal, or they make get "phantom limbs" where they feel like they have animal body parts.

Well if by “part animal” they mean bat shit insane, yeah, they’re that.

I would just like to point out the actual lack of research in this overall post…
Identifying as a Therian myself, I can confirm that I do NOT believe I am in any way physically an animal, nor can I shift into one. Being a Therian is identifying mentally or spiritually as an earth bound creature… That depends on the person and so does the reasoning or explanation behind it. Mental shifting is simply one adopting a more instinctual and animalistic mindset… And astral limbs (phantom limbs, as you worded it also) are just the odd feelings of having a limb or limbs that are not and was not ((in this lifetime)) attached to ones body. Eg. A tail, wings or ears that move in response to events happening in the physical world.

Yeah, all of that is bat shit crazy. If you’re experiencing feelings in things that were never there, you’re crazy. If you believe you have a spiritual connection with animals, you’re crazy.

I’m not sure ‘you’re crazy’ is a very legitimate response to such a debate, but if I am indeed crazy then so be it, cause I’m enjoying it. :3

Your “debate” is nothing more than abstract concepts. That are unproven and essentially unprovable, seeing as how you can’t find evidence for shit that doesn’t exist. So until you A-prove reincarnation actually is possible, B-prove spirituality is anything more than a term people use to describe things they believe in that don’t exist, C- have an extensive study on the neurological patterns and brain wave activity of people who identify as therian compared to those of whatever animal they think they are, and then D- prove that’s not just a genetic defect or variation of typical human patterns akin to other mental disorders. Which considering humans are animals you’re gonna have a hell of a time proving a human has the brain or psyche of an animal, because we all do.

Until you prove all that there is no debate to be had.

I suppose you’re right. It’s very unfortunate that there is not very much (if any) solid research on Therians, but I sure would love to see some. I’m not really trying to prove my existence or validate myself, simply share my opinion. It’s perfectly fine for you to have a different one, and I’m glad I’ve got to hear your point of view.
Have a nice day :)

I don't know too much about these things but this post does make sense to me. Unfortunately though my theriotype can't be my corresponding age as Snakes don't live very long and I've already outlived the lifespan of a King Snake but I still wish to be labeled as a therian over an otherkin because that's just how I see myself, I guess it's one of those however you choose to label yourself kind of deals. Then again I might be wrong as well but this is just my opinion on it.

earthen-heart answered:

No, that’s not necessarily what I meant. Most therians outlive their theriotypes natural lifespan, as do I. For example, for some deer species, the average lifespan is up to five years. I’m obviously older than five years. And the average human lifespan is about 80 years, right? Well I’m no where near 80 years old yet, so I’m young. And as such I’d be more like a fawn or calf. It’s all relative. Like per capita. But as say, a 35 year old, I’d be more like a deer at the age of three (a deer that only lives to five, that is.) And at age 80, if I do reach that age, I wouldn’t feel more like a fawn or calf. More so like an elderly deer, because I’d be an elderly human.

To me it doesn’t make sense to always ONLY feel like an infant of your theriotype. Because other animals age as well. I feel as though if you did always feel only like a hatchling (for example) even as an adult, that that should be considered otherkin. Possibly.

I mostly feel as though I am a very young and inexperienced wolf, which matches my personality, but I often just want to play and bite roughly the way that puppies do in a wolf litter.
