As some of you here have probably already seen, there's been some serious discussion on this thread
over on the Werelist regarding a therian and Otherkin pride/awereness symbol. The point isn't so much what it will be used for, but rather to have a unifying symbol between the two distinct communities.
Since each group already has a widely used and recognizable symbol each (the theta-delta
for therians and the seven pointed star
for otherkin) I suggested combining the two into one, signifying the similarities between the two communities and making a brand new, distinct symbol both groups can use together. A new symbol to represent both communities together.
So far on the Werelist, the agreed upon consensus is the theta-delta inside the seven pointed star. Like the design I made below.
However, it's not really fair to create a new symbol for both communities if the Otherkin community 1. don't know about this discussion and 2. has not had a chance to add their perspective and suggest specific design elements to it.
So I'm posting this here and in other 'kin forums I frequent (feel free to cross-post this to other places) to get some input. Thoughts please?
