Hello all ^^
Hi,
My name is Falcon. I'm a wolf therian. I'm a 19 year old anthropology student. I really can't give an exact time when I awakened, because I spent so long ignoring it and had so much else going on at the time. My awakening as a therian has been intertwined with my realization that I'm gay and my struggle with my gender identity, as well as a deep shift in my religious beliefs from die-hard Christian to eclectic Pagan. So you can probably see how a few too many wolfy traits went unnoticed. It didn't help that when I finally stopped ignoring it, I thought I was going crazy. It wasn't until relatively recently that I knew what therians and otherkin were. I think at first there was kind of a mix of "Omg, I'm not the only one!" and "This has a name? How crazy are these people?" I've come to a point now where I'm almost comfortable with being a therian. I will admit I have days where I wish I was "normal", but that applies to everything, not just therianthropy. And really, that's why I'm here. To talk to others who know more than I do or who are experiencing the same things I did and to learn to be ok with who and what I am. I look forward to getting to know you all.
Blessed be,
Falcon

Re: Hello all ^^
welcome to okp! i hope you'll enjoy your stay.

wow, all those changes must have been very hard - and you're only 19, so all the problems you have as a teen were added to that... <!-- s:shock: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_eek.gif" alt=":shock:" title="Shocked" /><!-- s:shock: --> i really don't envy you.

*waves* Hi Falcon, nice to meet you and welcome to OKP!

Also, if you go by Falcon, how come you chose the username frost? (I like both, by the way.) Just curious.

Re: Hello all ^^
I know you from somewhere <!-- sTongue --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" title="Razz" /><!-- sTongue -->

I can understand the religious setting and the age setting (I'm 20 myself and not much older than you, lol). I can also understand the ignoring part, it's not the smartest thing to do, but you can't help it when you know no one who's a Therian and never heard of the term before, lol.

Re: Hello all ^^
That is a lot to go through all at once!

On the gender identity thing, have you looked over to the side at everyone's gender label? Quite a lot of variety around here! So you should feel right at home. <!-- sBig Grin --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- sBig Grin -->
