I can has cheeseburger?
OK, I confess, I'm not actually a were-lolcat. But I am on your board, lurking and listening, mainly so that I can better understand and meet the needs of the therian/Otherkin crossover folks we get over on Werelist. There does seem to be a distinct pattern to the commonly reported Otherkin experience as opposed to the commonly reported therian experience, and it is interesting to look at the differences as well as the similarities.

Skeptics are fun. I look forward to reading what you have to write. New perspectives are always helpful and I do love a good thought provoking concept.

I’m also curious as to what you mean by a ‘Clinical therianthrope.’

I try not to be the mean kind of skeptic, but I do value good critical thinking and logic very highly, and I seek my own meaningful answers in science. I come from a shamanic and Pagan background (hippie upbringing, lol) and have great respect for Native traditions as well as a personal spirituality that could best be described as Pan-Gaea, a veneration of the ecosystem and its complex interlocking web of organisms in the constant dance of evolution.

Quote:I’m also curious as to what you mean by a ‘Clinical therianthrope.’

My best guess is that some aspects of the therianthropic experience are neurobiological in origin and may be related to (or actually on) the autistic spectrum. I don't claim this as absolute fact by any means as it is a good distance from being proven, nor is it necessarily true for everyone. But the patterns of anecdotal data from self-reporting therianthropes do strongly suggest the etiology of a clinical phenomenon distinct from the DSM definition of lycanthropy, as does my own personal experience. So I choose to label myself a clinical therianthrope with the understanding that I am not qualified to make the same judgment for anyone else.

Specifically a connection to another world or universe that is fairly commonly reported by Otherkin, and absent or nearly so in the accounts of individuals self-identifying as therian. I've put up a poll in the general otherkin forum to further explore the topic.
