Plant Therians
Hey guys,

I've noticed many people are googling for information on this subject.

I thought I'd mention we DO have a thread on the subject:
https://forums.therian-guide.com/Thread-Plants--2568

Generally plantkin are not considered to be Therians, but rather Otherkin. The Therian experience depends on relating one's mental state with that of an animal that can be observed. Plants have no mental states to speak of, and therefore it is not possible to have a Therian experience with a plant as one's theriotype.

More on that in the thread above, but you'll have to register. Smile

LP,
Dusty

If you think I hold something against you, you probably misunderstood.

RE: Plant Therians
I dunno. We had tree, machine, and insect (earwig) therians on the Werelist and the debate as to whether they were therian or not was never resolved. Weres like me and Coyote (Coyote knew the earwig) came away from it convinced that their experiences were therian enough to justify their inclusion.

RE: Plant Therians
Technically since plants are something that exist and occur on this earth naturally, they seem more therian than otherkin.

However, I have heard them refer to themselves as phytanthropes as a specific subsection of the 'kin experience.

RE: Plant Therians
Still, if the underlying mechanisms are the same, they should be included in therianthropological research studies if they desire.
