Trying this again
So I realize what I previous post sounded to blunt for some people so I’m going to try this again.
For the record I’m just trying to see what other people’s opinions are on the subject. Who knows maybe my mind will be changed.
If your kin type is an animal that does not exist, you are not a therian. Yes or no?
If you have a kin type that doesn’t exist like a blue dog or a dragon you are called an other in? Yes or no?
I too are going to try this again.
The color of the animal doesn’t really make a difference. Today we can genetically alter cats to make them glow in the dark. So if someone was a glowing cat *before* this happened, does that mean they weren’t therian until now?
Your line of reasoning and exclusion goes down a very deep rabbit hole of assumption as to what existed before and what might exist in the future.
The only qualifier to qualify someone as therian, is if they identify as a type of animal that has been known to exist on Earth. And being a different color or being a hybrid with another animal does not remove that label IF they still have the therianthropic attributes of that animal.
And once again it is still possible to be both otherkin and therian.
Please don’t continue down the elitist road.
P.S. I should also note that it was actually through exploring my own fox nature that I discovered furry and I identified as therian first.
