Hello! If you are reading this, you may be wondering what the word ‘therianthropy’ means, and if you don’t know, then this post is the right thing for you!
the word therianthropy describes someone who is a Therian. A therian is someone who believes they were an animal in their past life. Most people see this as weird or wrong in some way, mainly because of the stigma and the tropes that surround therianthropy. You may have heard of that one meme, that goes “on all levels except physical, I am a wolf.” That is one of the tropes.
(Therians will often practice quadrobics, which is when you run around and jump like an animal)
On top of that, Therians know they are human! They don’t believe they are an animal, they believe they were an animal. You do not need to remind anyone who is a therian that they are human, because they know.
the next thing is the confusion between furries and Therians. There is actually a VERY big difference between furries and Therians, though there is nothing wrong with either. A therian does not have the choice to be a therian. Sometimes, therianthropy can suck a lot because of the species dysphoria (we’ll talk about that later) that they go through. Therianthropy is often glorified by children who don’t know what it’s really like. A furry has the choice to be a furry. Furries cosplay animals, and have no spiritual connection to animals whatsoever, though it is ok to be a furry and a therian at the same time.
