all about otherkin (ok to RT) 

If you're new to the idea of #otherkin, or feel unsure of what it's about, I've made some friendly resources. Here's a short intro to us:

Then have fun reading this comic about otherkin and therianthropes:

When you already know the basics about them, browse through this library of books I've written that cover nearly every imaginable topic about them: their history, jargon, and links to writings about otherkin and therians by over 500 other authors than myself:

survey about otherkin (ok to RT) 

One more thing: if you yourself identify as #otherkin, #alterhuman, #fictionkin, #therianthrope, or #nonhuman, then you can take Emmet's survey about how that identity interacts with your gender, whether you're trans or not. The survey's open til July 1, 2019: theriotypical.tumblr.com/post/

@frameacloud nevermind! I started reading one of the articles you linked and it looks like it will answer my questions. ❤

@frameacloud I do wish the source didn't consistently refer to otherkin and therianthropes by he/him pronouns, but it was generally really enlightening. Thank you. ❤

Yeah, I never liked "neutral he" pronouns, either. That was one linguistic concession I made just because the purpose of that article was to be super accessible for ESL folks and anyone relying on machine translation. I'm obsessed with neutral pronouns-- once, I wrote an exhaustive article listing every neutral pronoun and what literature and persons have used them, which survives in part as nonbinary.wiki/wiki/English_ne plus some more obscure ones on its talk page at nonbinary.wiki/wiki/Talk:Engli -- but I found that machine translation consistently fails when encountering even conventional solutions like "he or she" or "they."

@frameacloud it's just a little stressful reading because it feels like it's misgendering my otherkin friends a lot. @.@
