Personally I don’t really understand the opinion in this thread of “I got a problem with them because they’re pretenders” do you also have a problem with cosplayers? Furries? LARPers? Roleplayers? And other forms of “wolf-pretend”?
Do we really need to be so proud of our “genuine [animal] experience as therian” that we can’t stand anything that looks simular?
I don’t mind teen werewolves at all. They’re just like punk, rock, goth and emo tl me. But with an animal touch. They remind me of my roleplay friends or fanatic LARP friends.

I find it important for them to know the difference between therian and teen werewolf, but if you knew that several “famous teen werewolves” have at some point claimed they are therian but don’t prefer to connect to the therian community (like wolfie blackheart appearently) then u could say the line isn’t as distinct and supreme as we “proud therians” think it is. It’s also not unknown that many teen werewolves are therians going through their teenage phase and who’ll even turn out to be really serious and therian community connected once grown up.
Likewise there are also teenwerewolves who state to not be therian at all tho.so the difference is largely known between teen werewolves in my experience.
I wish I knew of teen werewolves when I was young. I’d have been a full on teen werewolf. I wish I could now but adult responsibilities prevent me from it largely.
U could say I was a lowkey teenwerewolf tho with my emo look and animalistic details.
