Ok today I'm explains gear. Not all therians wear gear. Gear is a way for some therians to connect further with their spirits. This can be a tail for a fox, wolf, coyote, longer thinner ones for cats and big cats. Collars are another gear that a lot of therians wear. In the community though it has become a huge battle as some wear it as just fashion were as other therians will use it to feel closer with say a house cat therian, a dog therians, or a wild animal that was a pet in its past life. Fangs are another gear item that is mainly seen with canine therians. Some do have ears, hats, paw gloves, or any other item they use to identify with their spirit and bring them closer.
I myself do wear gear. I wear my tails. The two white ones and the light, thin brown ones are mine in the photo. The one next to my small one is my sisters, one of the packs pups. The longer, dark brown one is my brothers, and the omega for the pack. Finally the black one is our hunters.
The two white ones belong to my second awakened spirit Lunar. Shadow and Razor do not currently have a tail to match their looks, but soon will. I myself wear a collar, but not as fashion or for one of my spirits. My collar is worn in memory of my dog that I had to put to sleep last summer due to cancer. The same goes for my chain. They had both belonged to my pup. I also will have two wolf pelts before long. Both are being gifted to me by Black Wolf, a shaman and friend of Standing Fox and I. One is solid black for Shadow and the other is white and grey for Lunar. Sadly when I asked for them Razor hadn't been awakened so his will be gotten another day.
I'm glad to see you take the time to read through this all. It's hard to understand for those who haven't felt or experienced that of what therians and otherkins do. I will put some definitions below this paragraph so you can get some ides. Recently some have been calling me a furry and say I'm into beastiality. So here are you definitions for all of these.
Therians- a connection felt between an animal that was once living or is living on this Earth. Most therians have a connection with a displaced soul or a past life that was put into the wrong body. Not all therians awaken young and not all awaken old. Awakenings happen when ever, but we do not get to choice the animal we are attached to and we do not get to pick their name. All of that comes to us through shifting, mental or phantom or through dreams or astral means.
Otherkins- similar to therians, but portray those who connect with animals that have never lived on this planet, dragons, flying wolves, or elvins as a few. Otherkins tend to haves powers, or colors that most animals don't have, this includes eye colors. They also tend to be the vampires, werewolves, dragons, and other stuff that you tend to hear about.
Furries- furries are people who make a persona different from that of their true self, either different personality or other stuff. Furries tend to make what is called fursuits these are suits made for them to wear and look like that of their persona or the better term fursona. They have no spiritual connection to that persona such as therians and otherkins do with their own spirits. This doesn't mean that there aren't otherkins and therians who are furries. And no the concept that all furries have sex all day, all the time, in their suits, is not a thing.
Beastiality- this is the sexual attraction towards animals. Those who feel this enjoy watching or taking part in sexual activities with animals. No otherkins, therians, and furries are not people who just because we are these things makes us automatically into beastiality. Beastiality is a thing that is not a thing that people are into.
This has been Lunar Wolf signing out for now.
