A ‘Kin History Tidbit

The term contherianthropy would be coined and defined on the 19th of January of 1997 by Lion Templin. Lion Templin, an Alt.horror.Werewolves member and maintainer of his own website which hosted his writings wrote the essay titled, “A Short View on Modern Contherianthropy.” Contherianthropy, meaning a certain kind of therian(thrope) that did not experience shifts and experience a full integration of their human/animal experiences. The driving force behind the creation of the word was due to the early community’s obsession over shifting and assumption that a therian had to shift to be a therian.

To quote Lion Templin himself from the very article,

The prevailing attitudes of those who subscribe in therianthropy see the word as pertaining to those who ‘shift’ […]. And most certainly the classical definition of therianthropy has a great number who fit this simple dual-based nature, that of two distinct states: human and animal. However, with the basis of therianthropy moored the critical ‘shifter’ definition, it marginalizes those who identify and feel the presence of animals but lack the shifting boundary. […] Instead of transversing from one perception to another, they perceive the world from one reasonably constant frame.

Thank you for sharing this, which I’m sure goes under the radar of the more recent members of the therian and otherkin communities.

They’re from 2005, written by contherians for clarification after a period of debates regarding labels in the therian community; it was an ugly mess.
