i love that people think otherkin/therianism started on tumblr because the otherkin community on here is considered one of the absolute worst otherkinism has been around since the 90s
Otherkin have been around longer than that. The 90s is the earliest known INTERNET APPEARANCE of otherkin. :)
Anonymous asked:Hi Shiro! I want to start a group (either a FB group or a forum or something) to find and talk to other therians and furries in my area. Do you have any advice?
Hello! I would recommend you join some of the larger communities already out there and post a thread on each community seeking local otherkin and furries. It’d be best if you looked for otherkin on otherkin-centric forums, and furries on furry-centric forums instead of trying to mix the two - not all furries are otherkin and not all otherkin are furries, and some get offended to an illogical degree if you lump them in the same category. After your threads get interest, I would speak with the repliers in your area about starting a Facebook group or a Forum together. Let me know if you have any other questions!
There is a strong possibility that there is cult activity taking place on a particular otherkin forum. Alicorn River has been reported to control members’ decisions in life, guilt trip members until they obey, and use tactics of a spiritual nature to convince members not to question what they say….
No offense, this warning is kind of useless if you don’t list the forum.
hi! i was wondering if you have any good sources to learn about otherkin? i want to educate myself but im afraid of finding biased sources that aren't actually written by otherkin
I honestly don’t feel like looking for any resources, but if any of my followers or fellow kin have any, please feel free to speak up.
Hi there. I’m new to the otherkin community, and I just made this blog. Could anybody help me out in the way of pointing me towards good blogs to follow, trolls to block, etc.? That would be much appreciated :3
Hello, my first recommendation would be to join some otherkin-related websites that are not on Tumblr. There is a lot of hate and trolls on Tumblr, and stuff like this is much better controlled on sites dedicated to otherkin.\
I recommend Wulf Howl. :)
