I'm actually trying to make a guide myself and I was looking on the Therian guide on definitions and such while simplifying it. I found your article and it is rather wonderful !^_^
This is quite beautiful and well done. I love the conciseness of it. It presents the details, and and can be understood by a wide audience.
One thing though, I think that the "mental illness" section should be put first, to cast away any fears. And I think it should include fictkin (parallel universe explanation ect.)
Your introduction is quite amazing and with a little bit of smelting and shining, it surely will be a glittering gem for therians and non-therians!
I have the link to the forum for my article here:
