Hello everyone and welcome to the group.
First and foremost, this is a group to showcase artwork dealing with the subject of Otherkin/Therinathropy. All kintypes are welcome here and the gallery has been set up to mirror the common otherkin forum sections. If you feel I'm missing a kintype or have in some way not represented you please feel free to tell me and I'll try to rectify that.
Just as with a forum I expect my members to be polite and respectful, if you have issues with another member please try to handle it in a mature and reasonable manner. Drama is not welcomed here and I reserve the right to boot anyone making trouble.
Secondly, this group practices religious tolerance. The people in Otherkin/Therian communities come from all faiths and walks of life. This group does not tolerate belief bashing. EVER. I don't care if you're an admin/mod on another group or forum or if you're a community leader elsewhere, if I see you degrading someone else's beliefs I, as group founder and sole admin, have the right to show you where the door is.
And on that note, not all otherkin/therians subscribe to a spiritual outlook and likewise not all otherkin/therian subscribe to the psychological aspect of it, please be aware of this and try not to get upset if someone's reasons do not jive with yours.
However I do encourage discussion, questioning and criticism if done in a respectful and polite manner. This group also encourages critical thinking and analysis of your beliefs. Being respectful does not mean blindly accept everything anyone puts forth. Question, discuss and learn
Thirdly, as much as this group is for art I would like it to also be for discussion. Occasionally I will post a blog ( or perhaps another member ) about topics pertaining to the community. The respect thing applies here, as well as no belief bashing, but I would also like to ask that in these written discussions members try to use proper english. Its easier on everyone this way.
Fourth....Have fun and do lots of art!
OH and I would also like to note that if you any topics you would like to bring up, I have the group set so that members can post blogs too.
Be respectful and polite
No belief bashing. If you can't do that gtfo
This group does not tolerate racism, sexism, homophobia, biphobia, transphobia or cultural appropriation. Please keep it off the page and out of the folders or risk being ejected from the group.
Please try to use proper English or at least stay away from chatspeak
Please do not submit roleplay characters/OC's unless you are specifically using your kintype for an RP
Please do not submit photos of yourself ( especially webcam shots.) wearing a tail or coller or anything that might be better placed in a Teen werewolf group.
Please do not submit low quality photos or things irrelevant to otherkin or therianthropy or only tangentally related ( please no more photos of real animals, no photos of 'your pack' or Google maps screenshots) These WILL be removed if submitted.
PLEASE do not submit Teenwolf related things. It is the founders opinion that teen wolves have absolutelt zip zero to do with otherkin or therians. There are other therian/otherkin groups that accept that type of thing, just not this one.
Please submit things to the correct folder. DO NOT submit WIPS, sketches or otherwise unfinished pieces to the featured folder.
Anyone caught supporting beastiality/pedophillia/claiming otherkin are oppressed/comparing otherkin to being Trans* or other Tumblr fuckery will be immediately ejected from the group
Repeat: keep the tumblr drama and bullshit out of here
PLEASE DO NOT ENGAGE TROLLS. THE FOUNDER WILL DEAL WITH TROLLS AND HARASSMENT.
If you are having an issue with another member of the group, please send me RogueSareth a note and I will deal with as best I can
