'Personal' TherianthropyLately, Ive noticed some talk on Werelist about just how much publicity we as a community really want. Some believe it would be wonderful to have therianthropy become well-known, while others would just as soon keep themselves secret.
I can respect either opinion. Its the people who insist that no therian should want to tell anyone about their therianthropy that perplex me. These people tell other therians that therianthropy is a personal thing that shouldnt be shared with anyone, and seem to be convinced that anyone who wants to make their therianthropy public or even semi-public cannot possibly be a serious, true therian.
First of all, these particular therians must not realize that their willingness to participate in Werelist breaks their own rules. In talking about their therianthropy even anonymously they make themselves partially public.
Secondly, if it werent for therians making themselves public, the community would
ResentmentYou say nothing will ever bother you as you casually brush off both haters and passionate preachers with the same thoughtless flick of your wrist. And you claim nothing will ever get to you under your thick hide of apathy. You seem immovable, no untouchable, meditating with your head held high and a smug grin on your carefree lips that never so much as twitch.Resentment5 years ago in Philosophy & Perspectives More Like This
Yet you need not utter a word to get under my skin. I cant stand the sight of you acting so high and mighty, as if worldly affairs do not affect you in the slightest. Your unconcerned attitude shows, perhaps, your inability to care about anything, or anyone, at all. In that respect, I pity you, but it also makes you a waste of space, a faulty investment for humanity.
You have no purpose to your life, so I dont expect you to understand what it means to be determined about a goal; but just for the record, mine is to crack your shell, at any cost, and expose what is inside. Ill put an end to all the a

or the reason I haven't stopped loving you yet.
Because I've never wanted to. Because
dementia runs in the family,
and I will forget everything, even
the sound of my own voice. My children
and their children, warm or disinterested
strangers who speak too loudly and
point to photographs of people
I may have lived with or seen
in a movie once. They'll call me mother,
or Stephanie, say other names
I won't recognise, and none of it
will mean a thing. But if I love you,
if for sixty years I love you,
then I will remember that.
How to get more watchers, views, comments +more.(you WONT get famous from this, please.)How to get more watchers, views, comments +more.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So I always get a lot of questions asking how I have soo many watchers or so many faves or so many comments or so many whatever else! I have been on this site for about 6years or so now, and during that time i have evolved as an artist, and I have also changed as a person.
People on here always tell me how "jealous" they are of me, which I dont see at all. I am only here to draw art and improve myself. I really am not here for the attention, even though I thoroughly appreciate it (dont get me wrong!)
Every person has something their good at, better than someone else. Even if you haven't found it yet there is something that YOU are good at believe me!
It has taken me a long time to get my "art" to what it is today. Am I 100% happy with it? NO. But will I continue trying and improving in the hope that one day I will reach my goals.
So should you. So Maybe this will help you get more noticed on here I dunno, but I guess continue reading if you do!

'mai origunal speecies -- donut steel'Alright... so I've been seeing some stuff around here and Tumblr talking about original species and adoptables.'mai origunal speecies -- donut steel'4 months ago in Personal More Like This
From the title it would appear as if I'm being patronizing, and maybe in some way I am... Perhaps it's because after all the years of trying to stop people from stealing my 'ideas' I've come to understand something about all of this.
Maybe... I just think all this screaming, hooting, and hollering about 'she stole my bread-wolves!' or 'he stole my flaming hyena idea!!!' is just... ugh.
While I'm all for the concept of inventing a species and wanting to keep tabs on it, there is a limit as to how far your 'tabs' can go.
For instance -- If you're 'original species' is a genetically enhanced wolf of sorts (if it's looks like a neon wolf more or less) it's not that original. If it looks anything like a wolf, it's not that original.
Saying 'this is an original species; don't use!' and it's just a wolf with a long ta
