Therians/Otherkin: misconceptions and the truthRecently I have had some strong feelings on the matter of therianthropy/otherkin and have been searching for the will to type it out in a coherent way.Therians/Otherkin: misconceptions and the truth6 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Please keep in mind that these are just my thoughts and opinions. I am not trying to pass them off as LAW or EXACTLY what it is, just what I think. Try to keep drama and stupid behavior to a minimum please.
What is therianthropy?
Therianthropy is a spiritual belief or psychological state which can be very wide and diverse in its interpretation. As with any group of people it has its 'extremists' who put the rest of them to shame and creates a stereotype.
Therianthropy seems to be a derivative of Shamanism and Animism which many ancient cultures all over the world expressed. Feelings of reincarnation, being born to the wrong body and species are also the norm.
The most common 'types' of therianthropy out there are as such:
Totems and spirit guides
Some therian/kin's define their spirituality thr

If I could have a moment of your time?I know at this time of the year many people are finding the joy of family and friends.If I could have a moment of your time?8 months ago in Personal More Like This
If I could wish anyone anything this Holiday season it would be happiness, love, and a moment of clarity.
There has been so much going on in this world that seems to have put either hostility or pain onto the shoulders of people around the world. Many are still suffering and they all need to know that regardless of how much they feel it — They are never alone.
I want to wish all of you; even those I do not know as well as I could or should, a happy, healthy, and peaceful holiday.
I want you to remember that you are loved.
I want you to know you are not alone.
I want you to understand that you are brave, smart, strong, and every breath you take is a gift.
You are a gift.
I know this sounds like nothing but promotion for posterity coming from a s

Adhd in Muses.
You see, this is something that rarely goes diagnosed, much less treated, but it is a situation we all know. You are there, working hard. Your muse is leaning over your shoulder offering words of encouragement, and then... suddenly..
"Yes, yes that's looking wonderful, just a line to the left no-SHINEY! TENTACLES! BUTTERFLIES! WE SHOULD SCULPT! I KNOW I KNOW CRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAFT FOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAM! HEY YOU HAVENT DONE OIL PAINTING EVER, WE SHOULD START NOW! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH"
There you sit, gazing in wide eyed startlement as your once refined, elegant inspiration flings itself in a frenzy around the room leaving a trail of art supplies in it's wake. We've all been there, but I am here to say.. you are not alone. There is help.
The first step is to contain the muse. This may not be easily done, but I have found constructing a cage of colored pencils that have been taped together with artist's duck tape works wonders o

What the hell is up with all these young people becoming Satanists? [Please forgive that awful pun... |D]
I mean honestly... do you even know what a Satanist is?
What they do? What you're getting into?
This isn't just a 'walk in walk out' kind of thing...
What drives people to become Satanists? More so young people...
I mean really... What convinces you?
Are you trying to stick out, be different, be edgy?
Look, if you were BORN into the religion fine... but if you willingly, openly, and nonchalantly just walked into that religion I suggest you rethink what you're claiming to be.
Satanism isn't what they show you on TV with shows like 'Supernatural' where the demons are these hot men and all's well ends well, okay?
It's not that at all.
I'm all for free choice but when I see so many teenagers walking into a religion that

Japanese horror stories are the bestOkay so I'm reading random really short Japanese horror stories.Japanese horror stories are the best2 years ago in Personal More Like This
And I'll admit, a few of these freak me out by the art and the way they just end like, you see the monster and then BAM next story and you don't know what happened. And I'm the only one in my house righ tnow and my cat enjoys making random noises.
But then other ones just kill me.
Like this one I just read. There's this guy in his house and he hears something outside, and it's night. So he gets out a katana (yes) and opens the door.
And standing right there, staring at him, is this thing. It kinda looks like a decaying zombie, it's flesh is rotted and falling off in some places. One of it's eyes is missing and the other is blank and staring out from its socket. It's mouth hung open like it didn't have the ability to keep it up anymore. Its right hand seems to be gone, replaced by a garden sickle.
The monster stares. And then speaks.
"Ah . . . wrong house."
It walks through the wall and disappears.

Superman Vs Captain America and Nintendo NewsSuperman VS Captain AmericaSuperman Vs Captain America and Nintendo News1 year ago in Personal More Like This
If you haven’t heard yet, Warner Bros has announced that Man of Steel 2 aka Batman Vs Superman (featuring WonderWoman, Cyborg, and other characters from Justice League) will be released on May 6th 2016. AKA... the same day as Marvel’s Captain America 3.
I think I’ve reached a point where I’d rather Warner Bros give up now, since they clearly have no idea what they’re doing and seem grossly disinterested in trying to “build” this DC cinematic universe. I don’t want to see a watered down Justice League film before the actual Justice League movie. And I personally think it’s box office suicide to release it the same day as Captain America 3. Marvel studios is, right now, the BIGGEST film franchise company IN THE WORLD. Topping even Harry Potter and the Lord of the Rings. Combined, the Might of Marvel is INSANE... and you’re gonna position your weakest entry (the 2nd film in a franchi

Sorry Mario BrosSorry Mario BrosSorry Mario Bros2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Say what you will about Anita Sarkeesian, you gotta admit that people do take note of what she says for good or ill. In this piece of news, it's for the good.
As you might already know, in her latest video she outlined a simple "damsel frees herself" video game. Nothing too spectacular but it showcased how one can subvert the typical trope and make a strong female character out of it. While many were quick to criticize her for not making the game herself (given her kickstarter success), others took a more direct approach and actually made a game in 2 weeks.
The game is called "Sorry Mario Bros," and the plot is that Princess Peach decides to rescues herself by leaving Bowser's castle in world 8-4. You progress right to left through familiar, but slightly altered, original Mario Bros. worlds working your way backwards towards world 1-1. Along the way you can take detours and use Peach's float ability to reach hidden areas and collect "princess coins."

In the past I’ve drawn my own artwork to explain things, but that’s always resulted in people accusing me of not knowing what I’m talking about and demanding actual sources. I don’t like the idea of using actual sources because my criticism of these techniques could easily be misinterpreted as criticism against specific artists, which is entirely the wrong idea. A lot of the time, these are pervasive techniques used throughout the mainstream (American) comic industry and are not the fault of any one particular artist. It’s more of a condemnation of perpetuating “bad habits” than anything else.
As a result, this new batch of “Things I Wish Comics Would Stop Doing” strips will feature actual artwork
