On April 21st at 7:00 PM Central Time, I will be hosting a moderated discussion about therianthropy on IRC. The topics will be:
1) If you view therianthropy as being due to spiritual phenomenon, and practice some sort of religion, do you view the two as being integrated and if so how?
2) Have you tried to suppress your instincts and shifts for long periods (not just when you’re out in public or the urge is particularly inappropriate)? If so, how effective were you, and were there side effects?
To join, go to http://www.mibbit.com
and click “launch Mibbit client.” Type in your preferred nickname and type “#stdc” into the field called “channel.” Click “auth,” select “password” and enter “purplemountains.” Then click connect. You may have to add some random digits to the end of your nickname; Mibbit is a large server and some nicknames will already be registered. Please note that when not in use the channel is locked. This means that outside of shortly before the chat starts, during the chat, and shortly after it ends (if people linger), it will be impossible to say anything in the chat.
Chats will be archived on the Werelist, as attachments on this
thread. Also, Therian Guide and Kinmunity both made a chatbot that’s will allow users on their Discord to see what’s being said in the chatroom and participate.
