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:

@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 plus some more obscure ones on its talk page at -- 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. @.@
