Therian-Anti-Wolf-stamp by TheLeetCasualGamer Therian-Anti-Wolf-stamp by TheLeetCasualGamer
Okay, I made this stamp because I have to say. I'm getting a little tired of this drama. It's true that a common wolfaboo will always say "wolf at heart" but really, they make us look like a joke. I feel that some Anti-Wolf members are not informed what this means

Therianthrope- The word itself consisting of two words, meaning Animal and Man.
A person with a connection to, or an affinity with an Earthly animal.
For example, a person who believes he/she has an animal soul/spirit or mentality of an animal that lives, or has lived, on Earth.
(That we see as existing genetically)

Otherkin- These are often exactly the same as Therianthropes but refer to the soul or spirit being classified a 'Mythical' being, rather than an Earthly animal. Such animals include Dragons, Unicorns, Vampires, Minotaurs, Sphinxes, Gryphons etc.
(Taken off the Therian Wilderness site)

If your going off the standard of "wolf at heart" as wolfaboo then there would also be rataboos, jaguaraboos, foxaboos, tigeraboos, sharkaboos, hermit crababoos, Dragonaboos, vampireaboos, Gryphonaboos, and the list goes on and on.

We believe that we were some sort of animal in the previous life. That an animal soul was not able to find a body of their type so instead took the form of a human. Yes my body is flesh. I have thumbs. I have the thoughts of a human. But I did went through some mental shifts in life (mainly through the puberty period). Not even having much knowledge of what a "wolf" is but showing some unusual behavior. I've also had dreams almost as if I didn't belong in the human world. And hey, even my hearing and awareness is better than average humans. (but I think that just has to do with increase senses, not being a therian. :P)

Wolf therians are some of the most common. Why? We really don't know. Some theorize that because it is a fact that wolves were actually were hunted down, and yes that is a fact, that their souls did find human bodies and boomed with the population of wolf therians.

Wolfaboos want to believe that they have the wolf's spirit because it's the "best." Most of us therians don't even think that being part animal is the best thing in the world. But don't confuse us for a common wolfaboo. I do not think a wolf is the best animal. You can see, my typing skill is well above average and my opinions are incredibly rational. I don't spend all day on a computer watching wolf's rain or Balto or looking at sparkle wolves. I've seen the first one about three times, I've seen the second once. I've watched the first season of wolf's rain one time. I loved the first Balto movie despite the fact I know it's not realistic. I thought wolf's rain and the second movie were O.K. See, I do have a grip on reality. :P

One last thing. Therianthropy is not a religion. I know christian therians. I for one am a Buddhist.

I don't expect anyone in the group to understand. But we don't like shoving down our beliefs. You can tell me what you think about all of this.

I don't consider myself a wolf at heart.

It isn't because I'm a human, it's because I don't have a heart.

Not to sound mean, but personally finding wolves the best =/= wolfaboo.
If I wanted to be a wolf for any personal reason (even if by best) on it's self, then I don't think that's a wolfaboo..

A real wolfaboo is someone rabid, and.. bad to others like acting like an asshole as a requirement. But if you are not an asshole but still only watch wolf stuff, etc. then I don't think that's a real wolfaboo.

I understand, as a 17 year old who has been an arctic wolf in a human body for 17 years (not 4! Unlike those 13 year olds that label themselves as therian to be cool/edgy!) and nothing annoys me more than misconceptions that relate wolf therians to typical media-portrayed "werewolves" and such. Therian should not be a trend because it is our IDENTITY and using it to look trendy damages the credibility of people who really were born an animal in a human form.

Therianthrope huh, at least I finally found the word I believe myself to be associated with. Because it was really difficult to know how to describe myself in that way without an indication.

Hi, Ive stumbled across your stamp and read some of the comments. Previous to viewing this I had no idea what a therian was. I've always believed even as a child that I was connected with a wolf, and that spiritually my spirit was that of one, or that I was a wolf in a past life. From some basic research I've just conducted I now believe myself to be a wolf therian. (even my mannerisms have been told to me by others as wolf like.) However after reading the comments it seems as though Im a wolfaboo because my fave animal is the wolf, I tend to look for anime or games that have wolves, and I do look at wolf pictures in my spare time. I wouldnt go as far to say I worship them, but they are among my favorite animals, and I do actively seek wolf items like statue and figures and such. Im unfamiliar with what a woofaboo really i but it seems to have a negative connotation so I was wondering based on what Ive said is it possible I am a wolf therian or a wolfaboo?

It's really funny that you think that teenager girls who seem to be obsessed with wolves and sparkleanimals (even though that period of stupidity is most of times just a phase), make otherkin/therians "look like a joke".
Otherkin/therians believe they have the soul of an animal, or that they actually are a wolf/dragon/homestuck character "at heart".

You can believe you are whatever you want, of course you're free to think that your human brain somehow contains the soul of a slug.
But. Psst. If anything, is otherkin what sounds like a joke, especially when they try to compare "I'M ACTUALLY A DOLPHIN!!1" to the struggles of, let's say, transexual people.
"b-but... w-we were both born in the wrong body... but mah feelings..."

I'm not a therian (the only animals I could ever identify with are humans), but I still found this very interesting.

Why I think the wolf therian population is so high is that some kid gets crappy grades and can't make friends so they decide "FUK DA WORL, I R WOOF" and use it as a form of escapism. Then they label themselves as a "therian".

I wish I knew a fake therian in real life so I could punch them.

That theory you presented sounds really interesting :) I've only ever met one other silver fox therian :iconaloneplz:

Yeah, that is definitely most possible! It's called being polykin or polytherian, meaning someone who has more than one kintype/theriotype (like me, as I've recently discovered ^^)

I have actually seen a sloth, earwig, butterfly, platypus, rhino, orca, sea slug, shark and quiet a few swan, hawk and owl therianthropes. The community is small, and most of the more open therians are larger, prouder animals. But, their is many, many different types. ;3

this whole "therian" "wolfaboo" thing is way too close in similarity both sides need to gain some distance i am pro-wolf but anti-wildlife management

side note i find that all life has value and if your give you self a set price then you apply it to all life when people say that their "just" animals doesn't make it any less cruel or sadistic
