A difficult to describe article discussing the way in which a person’s identity as a therian may develop. The writing primarily focuses on the idea that a person might build their identity based around the concepts introduced to them by other therians, rather than understanding their animality organically ( i.e. prior to learning about therianthropy).
This is a discussion that was posted to AHWw in 1997, and the demographics mentioned at the end of the article are not reflective of the present.
