So I've wanted to make this thread for a while now but I haven't been too active here on TG, now I can finally make it lol
So I've been wondering what the future will be like regarding therianthropy. My first question is will people still call themselves therians or alterhumans? Will the label just die out and be forgotten? Or will therianthropy be well known in the future? I think that therians will eventually be well known and people will know who we are, but there is always a chance that people could simply forget therians and nobody would call themselves alterhumans. Although, I do think that people will always still experience therianthropy, whether they have labels to describe it or not.
My second thought revolves around what is, in my opinion, the most harmful thing to the therian community: tiktok 'therians'. The drama going on over there is wild, people are even saying that the therian community is 'falling apart', and.. no its not.. The people who say that have clearly only ever interacted with tiktok therians. But anyways, that's besides the point. I'm pretty sure every person on tikok has a different definition of therianthropy. The main ones being: quadrobics and gear, connections, and past lives. My fear is that tiktok 'therians' will change the definition of therianthropy and in the future it will have a completely new meaning. I really hope this doesn't happen but only time will tell.
On a side note, I really hope that these therian forums don't get forgotten. I'm only really active here on TG, but I really don't want this site to be gone in the future. Therian Guide makes me feel welcomed and at home, and I don't want people to forget about it - but hopefully that won't happen!
So what do you think will happen to therianthropy and therians in the future?
Thanks for listening to my rant!
