    Interactions and Discussions Guidelines [3209 words]
    (created by Chaoticcylinder on 2022 Feb 9 Wed 17:28:34 GMT)
    TW: brief mention violence of abuse; mention of suicide and self-harm in guideline 13. Be nice and treat others with respect. All discussion posts, replies and comments must follow Miraheze's Code of Conduct and Content Policy as well as those for this wiki's Community Guidelines. Users who commit small violations of guidelines will not be immediately banned, but rather given a warning and directed to these guidelines to learn why what they did was against community guidelines. If, after being directed to and reading those guidelines, the user continues to violate guidelines, then they will be banned. This does NOT apply to harassment, discrimination, invalidation, or any other form of harm or vandalism. The following guidelines apply to all interactions with other users on this wiki (including the comment sections of articles and the discussions section of this site). General conduct 1.1) Trolling, or vandalizing of any kind will be deleted and will lead to your account being banned. 1.2) No blatantly/excessively toxic behaviour, passive-aggression or otherwise disrespectful posts/comments. Anything that directly insults or threatens another user can result in a ban anywhere from three months to indefinitely, depending on the severity. This includes but is not limited to threats of violence, intentional misgendering, unwanted sexual or romantic advances, or continuing to do something that makes another user uncomfortable when you have been told to stop. Do not condone violence against or the demonization of any group (regardless of the group in question). This includes demonizing pedophiles, necrophiles, zoophiles, or other paraphilic disorders. Paraphilic disorders are mental illnesses, and demonizing such groups is included under ableism. Do not make "jokes" about killing anybody regardless of the context or your intentions. 1.3) Be respectful of others Minorly passive-aggressive posts/comments or posts/comments with generally disrespectful tones such as posts with content along the lines of "block me if you must, I don’t care," or similar will be removed and blatant/repeated instances of this may result in a warning or block. 1.4) No excessive "mini-modding" behaviour (attempting to enforce guidelines without being a staff member); report users who have violated the rules to staff members via the reporting feature. Asking a user to include appropriate trigger/content warnings in their posts does not violate this guideline. 1.5) Advertising Do not ask individuals to follow you or message you on another social media account in the comments of an article. Only give out your social media as a means of contacting another user via message walls or in the discussions section if it is relevant to the conversation, not unsolicited, and not for the purpose of trying to garner follows/likes/traction. Threads and posts that solicit upvotes will be deleted. Do not "advertise" your article in the comments/replies of an unrelated article/post. Do not "recommend" someone else an identity you made when it is not relevant to what they are asking. 1.7) Impersonation of other users or famous individuals will not be tolerated. Any posts will be deleted and your account(s) will be banned. 1.8) Do not share links to Padlets. This is due to trolls using Padlet links as a way to target users and evade punishment. This ban may be lifted in the future. Spam and irrelevant posts 2.1) Intentional/malicious spamming will be deleted and will lead to your account being banned. 2.2) Do not spam in the comments of articles or the discussions section of the site. Spamming, in this context, is defined as making multiple comments that repeat the same statement with little to no variations, or repeat the same sentiment, particularly when it is not relevant to the article or productive to the conversation. It doesn't matter what you are saying. This includes spamming across multiple pages. 2.3) Do not make posts/comments that are meaningless or spam-worthy (eg. posts that are a single word, polls where all the options are the same). 2.4) If your post/comment is removed and you do not know why, do not make a post on the discussions board asking about it - instead, contact a mod directly via their message wall. 2.5) No posts/comments that are designed not to be read (such as posts titled "ignore this," "don't read this," or something similar). Language, slurs and word usage 3.1) All discussions must be primarily in English, as discussions cannot be easily or accurately monitored otherwise. Non-English discussions will be deleted, and a user repeatedly making non-English posts may be warned or temporarily blocked if the behaviour continues. 3.2) Use of language and slurs: Do not use racial, cultural, or ableist slurs (even if you can reclaim them). If using an LGBTQ+ slur in a reclaimed manner, censor it. If mentioning the slur (without being able to reclaim it) say "the _ slur" (ie: "the f slur"). This does not apply to queer, as queer is typically not seen as a slur anymore. Do not use words such as psychopath, psycho, sociopath, narcissism, narcissist, and similar unless you are referring to psychosis, sociopathic disorders, AsPD, and/or NPD. Using those words in any other manner will be considered ableist, as it spreads the false narrative that those traits make someone evil. Typing quirks Any typing quirk that interferes with the letters of words or the overall comprehensibility of words - no matter how “minor” - must be translated, as screen readers cannot always “understand” what is being said. Posts that include the use of typing quirks must include a translation within the post if one is able to be provided. If a translation cannot be provided by the user posting, they must ask for one to be provided by pinging at least one typing quirk translator (see this list for users who are willing to be pinged for translating typing quirks: https://lgbta.wikia.org/wiki/User_blog:Contie/Typing_Quirk_Translators). Users who do not either provide a translation or ping a translator to ask for one to be provided will have their posts removed, and may receive a warning or block if the behaviour continues. These rules are in place to ensure that the wiki is accessible to those who use a screen reader, as well as dyslexic, hard-of-sight, and other disabled/neurodivergent individuals who may struggle to read typing quirks. Relationships 5.1) No making posts/comments actively seeking a relationship with users on this wiki. If you wish to ask someone out, please do so on another social media site or on their message wall. 5.2) Furthermore, do not make posts/polls asking about other users’ attraction towards you. Polls strictly asking about friendships are, however, allowed. Art and crediting 6.1) Crediting When posting someone else's art (fanart, reference art, Picrews, etc) you must credit the artist and link to the original piece/source (even if an art piece has a watermark or signature). If the art was made by an anonymous user, link to where the anonymous user submitted it. This also applies to using code that you didn't write yourself. 6.2) Respect artists Follow artists' terms of services and respect artists' boundaries. Do not criticise someone's artwork unless criticism was asked for. Do not ask someone for free artwork unless they have offered to create free artwork. Do not trace or otherwise steal artwork. Wiki-related discourse 7.1) Wiki related discourseis allowed, as long as discussion follows all other guidelines and is constructive, productive and respectful towards the wiki, the wiki’s staff team, and the wiki’s community/users; wiki-related discourse of this nature will be monitored by staff members to ensure it remains as such. “Wiki related discourse”, here, is defined as discussions of issues and opinions relating to the wiki such as its guidelines/policies, or other problems one may have with the wiki. This may sometimes overlap with identity/non-wiki related discourse if it is a question over what “stance” the wiki should take. 7.2) “Discourse” relating to other wiki users is not allowed; users should be reported when necessary, rather than “called out” Posts/polls directed at specific users with intent to insult, discredit, "call out," argue with, or otherwise complain about them will not be permitted. Do not make posts on the discussions page calling out users for breaking the rules. Instead, use the report feature, and/or contact a staff member directly via their message wall. For complaints about a staff member, the Wiki's Bureaucrat should be contacted directly via their message wall or on Discord. Absolutely no polls or posts asking individuals to share their opinions on another user. Users should not ask for genuine criticism or ask "do you like me" unless they are absolutely sure they can take negative feedback. If you want to confront another user privately but are uncomfortable doing so or unsure how to proceed, do not take it to the discussions page. Instead, contact a mod or admin privately to ask for help, and they will assist you in confronting the issue in the best way possible, without starting drama. Non-wiki discourse, identity discourse and exclusionism 8.1) No polls that are "is

    The neurodivergent flag. The neurodiverse symbol, associated with neurodivergence as a whole. The autism symbol, often confused for the neurodiversity symbol.Full credits to Cryptocrew for writing this page. Disclaimer: This page is not here to be used as a diagnosis. This page is purely educational and it is completely dependent on the individual if they make the decision of self-diagnosis. If one finds themself relating to any of the listed forms of neurodivergence, it is encouraged to reach out to medical professionals if possible, especially if this neurodivergence is causing distress/harm (physically, mentally, and/or emotionally). Neurodivergent Note: This page only includes talk of conditions under the DSM-5, ICD-11, and other conditions that are commonly associated with the neurodivergent community. It may not have every diagnosed condition one has; however, it has a list of up-to-date diagnoses used amongst medical spaces. One's previous diagnoses may not be used in medical spaces anymore (and may have been renamed/replaced with a different diagnosis) so it is possible that one may not find their diagnosis on this page. Neurodivergent (ND), Neuroatypical, and/or Neurovariant are terms to describe individuals who do not fit what society perceives as typical in ways of thinking and/or in how one's brain functions. This includes mental disorders, mental disabilities, psychological variations, mental variations, and similar. The term "neurodivergence" is often mistaken to be exclusively for developmental conditions/disorders; however, the coiner of the term has disproven this, and made it clear that neurodivergence can be used by anyone who does not fit the typical perception of mental functioning, Neurodivergence may at times overlap with physical disabilities, and some forms of neurodivergence are considered psychological/mental disabilities in and of themselves (however, that can depend on the condition, as well as what those with said conditions feel is appropriate). Neurodivergence is not an exclusively queer experience, nor is it inherently LGBT+; however, it can affect one's view on gender, sex, attraction, relationship, pronouns, and presentation. While it does not affect all neurodivergent individuals' views on their identities, it does affect a large amount of them, and there has been studies that prove a tie between different disorders/variance and queerness. There have been a number of studies that show that neurodivergent individuals are more likely to be cisn't due to their unique functioning and way of thinking about gender. Many intersex variations can also be linked with neurodivergence, typically one's relating to hormonal and/or chromosomal differences. Neurodivergent Forms Neurodivergence comes in a variety of forms, many of which are categorized accordingly by symptoms, thought-patterns, functioning, and behavior. It is important that one reads the articles linked to each form in order to gain more information on these conditions and it is encouraged to research further into the community and spread awareness on these topics. While most mental conditions that are recognized on the DSM-5 and the ICD-11 are on here, some may not be due to the terminology of diagnosis used. Some terms used in diagnosis include the following: Atypical-: when ones symptoms for a specific condition are non-typical. No atypical- conditions are listed on this page, due to the term being able to be put in front of any condition. Other-/Other Specified-: when one is extremely close/close enough to be identified as something, but is missing several of the typical requirements for diagnosis. Most other- terms are listed on this page; however, there may be more specific ones not listed, (such as Other Tobacco-Induced Disorders) due to them being specific variations of already listed terms (ie: Tobacco Withdrawal and Tobacco Use Disorder). Unspecified-: when one has symptoms of a specific condition, but do not fall close-enough to any of the diagnoses available. Most unspecified- terms are listed on this page; however, like with the other- terms, there may be more specific ones not listed. Addictive Disorders Addictive Disorders are conditions in which one grows dependent on addictive substances (alcohol, drugs, chemicals, etc). Often times this addiction begins due to family history of addiction and/or in order to deal with depression, anxiety, neurodivergence, trauma, and/or disabilities; however, it can begin from a number of causes. Addiction can become life-threatening and can be difficult to break free from. There are multiple different types of addictive disorders, which are discussed briefly in the following list: Gambling Disorder/Problem Gambling/Compulsive Gambling: an addictive disorder in which one compulsively/addictively gambles, often to the point of losing an excessive amount of money/personal belongings. This disorder can develop from trauma/depression/anxiety/other forms of neurodivergence, stress, negative thoughts, social influence, and/or similar factors. More information can be found here. Internet Gaming Disorder (IGD)/Gaming Disorder: an addictive disorder in which one compulsively/addictively plays video games/online games to an extent that it becomes impairing to ones mental health. This disorder commonly partners anxiety (specifically social anxiety). More information can be found here. Substance Use Disorder (SUD): an addictive disorder in which one compulsively/addictively consumes chemicals (typically drugs and alcohol; however, other substances may apply). Common symptoms are irritability, sleepiness/difficulty sleeping, restlessness, depression, anxiety, mood swings, troubles with eating, headaches, and similar. More information can be found here. Subsets to this include the following: Alcohol Use Disorder: an addictive disorder in which one compulsively/addictively consumes alcohol. More information can be found here. Cannabis Use Disorder: an addictive disorder in which one compulsively/addictively consumes cannabis (aka marijuana). More information can be found here. Hallucinogen Persisting Perception Disorder (HPPD): when one experiences intense flashbacks of their past times being high/intoxicated. These could occur months-years after using the hallucinogen, and it can feel as though the flashback is merging with the current happenings. More information can be found here. Phencyclidine Use Disorder: an addictive disorder in which one compulsively/addictively uses phencyclidine (aka Angel Dust or PCP). More information can be found here. Inhalant Use Disorder: an addictive disorder in which one compulsively/addictively uses inhalants (such as paint, glue, white out, cleaning products, etc). More information can be found here. Opioid Use Disorder: an addictive disorder in which one compulsively/addictively uses opioids (such as morphine, heroin, some painkillers, methadone, etc). More information can be found here. Other Hallucinogen Use Disorder: an addictive disorder in which one compulsively/addictively uses hallucinogens (besides phencyclidine). More information can be found here. Sedative, Hypnotic, or Anxiolytic Use Disorder (SHA Use Disorder): an addictive disorder in which one compulsively/addictively uses sedatives, hypnotics, and/or anxiolytics. More information can be found here. Stimulant Use Disorder: an addictive disorder in which one compulsively/addictively uses stimulants. More information can be found here. Tobacco Use Disorder: an addictive disorder in which one compulsively/addictively uses tobacco. More information can be found here. Other (or Unknown) Substance Use Disorder: when one does not fit any specific substance use disorder subsets; however, they hold symptoms of a substance use disorder, and can still be identified as such. More information can be found here. Substance Withdrawal: an addictive disorder related to stopping an addictive substance (usually sudden stopping; however, it can be a slow stop as well). The typical symptoms include irritability, trouble sleeping, exhaustion, mood swings, hallucinations/delusions, anxiety/depression, headaches, physical strain/issues, fever-like symptoms, and similar. More information can be found here. Subsets to this include the following: Alcohol Withdrawal (Syndrome): a condition caused by stopping regular/addictive use of alcohol. More information can be found here. Caffeine Withdrawal: a condition caused by stopping regular/addictive use of caffeine. More information can be found here. Cannabis Withdrawal: a condition caused by stopping regular/addictive use of cannabis. More information can be found here. Hallucinogen Withdrawal: a condition caused by stopping regular/addictive use of hallucinogens. More information can be found here. Opioid Withdrawal: a condition caused by stopping regular/addictive use of opioids. More information can be found here. Sedative, Hypnotic, or Anxiolytic (SHA) Withdrawal: a condition caused by stopping regular/addictive use of sedatives, hypnotics, and/or anxiolytics. More information can be found here. Stimulant Withdrawal: a condition caused by stopping regular/addictive use of stimulants. More information can be found here. Tobacco Withdrawal: a condition caused by stopping regular/addictive use of tobacco. More information can be found here. Other (or Unknown) Substance Withdrawal: when one closely fits a withdrawal disorder, but is experiencing withdrawal from substance that is not on the other subsets, or withdrawal from an unknown substance. For all of the disorders listed above, the affected individuals are often unable to break away from this dependence on their own (even if they realize the harm it causes), and professional help is highly recommended and often required. Addiction and substance abuse are common amongst those with these disorders. Adjustment Disorders Adjustment Disorders are stress-related conditions, in which one experiences high amounts of depression and/or anxiety due to being in a high-stress environment. Some common causes for adjustment disorders are moving to a new home, living in dangerous spaces, relationship problems, losing a job/having low income, school/work stress, life threatening experiences, or even having other forms of neurodivergence that causes stress. Adjustment disorders, if caught and treated, can be taken care of in a quicker amount of time than most other disorders. However, if not treated quickly, adjustment disorders have the possibility of forming into something serious, such as an anxiety or depressive disorder. More about adjustment disorders can be found here. Anxiety Disorders Anxiety Disorders are conditions in which the brain overthinks, stresses over, or has paranoia over things (usually simple/everyday things that should not cause such stress). Anxiety Disorders can be caused by chemical/hormonal imbalances, hereditary passing, trauma, and/or from high amounts of stress in daily life. There are multiple different types of anxiety disorders, which are discussed briefly in the following list: Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD): an anxiety disorder characterized by excessive distress and worry about activities, events, and individuals, even if these activities/events/individuals are seen/experienced on the daily. This means one has anxiety about concepts that can be considered/classified as mundane and often times have little to no risk factors involved. More information can be found here. Panic Disorder: an anxiety disorder characterized by reoccurring and unexpected panic attacks. The cause for panic disorder is unknown; however, it is known to run in families and risk factors include smoking, psychological stress, and a past of child abuse. More information can be found here. Phobias: a type of anxiety disorder characterized by an irrational fear of a specific object, situation, type of individual, and similar. Typically agoraphobia is brought up in terms of anxiety disorders; however, all phobias fall under the anxiety spectrum. More information an be found here. Selective Mutism (SM)/Situational Mutism: a type of anxiety disorder in which one cannot speak in specific situations, specific places, and/or around specific individuals if their anxiety is triggered. They fully understand speech and can typically talk perfectly fine; however, when triggered, they are incapable/unable, even if they try. More information can be found here. (Note: those with this condition prefer the term 'situational' over 'selective,' as they are not choosing to be mute). Separation Anxiety Disorder (SAD): an anxiety disorder characterized by excessive worry/distress when separated from home and/or individuals on has formed an emotional bond to. Anxiety when separated is common behavior within children; however, if one continues to express anxiety when separated at an older age, they likely have SAD. More information can be found here. Social Anxiety Disorder or Social Phobia: a type of anxiety disorder characterized by excessive worry/distress when in social spaces. This should not be confused with shyness and/or stage fright. More information can be found here. Other Specified Anxiety Disorder: when one closely fits an anxiety disorder but does not fit the full diagnostic requirements. They may be considered "close enough" to a condition to be diagnosed as it (such as being diagnosed with SAD, despite not fitting all the symptoms). More information can be found here. Unspecified Anxiety Disorder: when one shows symptoms of an anxiety disorder but does not fit any subset enough to be diagnosed with a specific form of it. Attractional Disorders Attractional Disorders are conditions in which one experiences attractional abnormalities, or has a distressing form of attraction. The term "attractional disorder" is not widely known amongst the medical community; however, it is a replacement for the term "sexual disorders" as not all forms of disordered attraction are sexual in nature and can be based on romantic and/or tertiary attractions as well. Some attractional disorders (specifically some sexual disorders) are not neurodivergent in nature (as they are related more to bodily functions than mental functions) and will not be discussed on this page. The multiple different types of attractional disorders that are neurodivergent are discussed briefly in the following list: Hyper-: a disorder characterized by having intense/unnaturally high attractional desires (typically applying to sexual attraction; however, other forms of attraction may apply as well). This is due to other forms of neurodivergence, alcohol/drugs, trauma, chemical imbalances, and/or hormonal imbalances. Hypo-: a disorder characterized by having unnaturally low attractional desires (typically applying to sexual attraction; however, other forms of attraction may apply as well). This is due to other forms of neurodivergence, alcohol/drugs, trauma, chemical imbalances, and/or hormonal imbalances. Paraphilic Disorders: a spectrum of disorders characterized by unhealthy and/or unnatural attraction. The most commonly recognized paraphilic disorders include pedophilia, zoophilia, necrophilia, incestual attraction, exhibitionism, voyeurism, and transvestic disorder; however, they are many other varieties of paraphilic disorders, which you can find covered here. Objectum attraction is sometimes classified as paraphilic; however, the community is pushing to change this view, as it does not accurately represent the objectum experience. While some with paraphilic disorders may act on their attraction, many do not and it should not be assumed that all paraphilic individuals are dangerous or criminals. (Note: This is not to be confused with paraphilias, which are sexual attractions to anything that is not a sexual organ, such as fetishes/kinks. Not all paraphilias are paraphilic disorders.) Sexual Dysfunction (neurological forms): difficulty experienced during sexual activity, such as issues with pleasure, desire, preference, arousal, and/or orgasm. Sexual dysfunction can be from neurological differences (such as depression) or it can be from physical differences (such as hormonal imbalances). If it is from physical differences, its not typically classified as neurodivergent; however, it can be if it affects one's mental health. More information can be found here. Auditory Processing Disorder Auditory Processing Disorder (APD) is a condition in which one's brain struggles to comprehend speech. The differences between how different words sound can be difficult or impossible for an individual with APD to process. For example, chair, hair, and bear could all sound exactly or almost exactly the same to someone with APD, and/or a sentence can get scrambled when being processed (and thus can be difficult or impossible to understand). Those with APD can find extreme difficulty following directions or participating in conversation. School and work can be extremely difficult, especially if there are a lot of background noises. More information can be found here. Autism Spectrum The Autism Spectrum is a term used to describe a condition that comes in many varieties, in which one has a brain that functions in a way that exhibits restricted/repetitive patterns of behavior, interests, and activities. Those within the Autism Spectrum tend to perceive the world/individuals/society around them in a unique manner, one that most neurotypical Individuals (and even some neurodivergent Individuals) cannot fully understand/relate to. Autists tend to dislike autism being described as a disorder, as many feel as though that is undermining their experiences and generalizing autism as a concept that needs "fixing." The Autism Spectrum is often referred to as "ASD" or "Autism Spectrum Disorder;" however, many autists dislike this, as the term "disorder" being included with autism is negatively viewed within the community. Some autists are comfortable with their condition being referred to as a disability; however, this does not apply to all autists, and it should be respected that some autists may be uncomfortable with the terminology. Some autists need assistance in daily life, depending on their mental circumstances (ie: if they can speak, do school alone, etc). This does not make them weak, childish, or "wrongly developed." It simply means that they have different struggles than neurotypical (and possibly other neurodivergent) individuals do. Some (but not all) autists are non-verbal or partially verbal and this should be recognized and respected, as attempting to force them to speak may cause immense distress. It is important to check an autistic individual's limits, just as one should check with others. Autistic individuals often have hypersensitivity or hyposensitivity in one or more of their senses and can in turn struggle in certain spaces (at home or socially) if not given the proper tools (ie: earmuffs for hypersensitive hearing). This does not apply to all autistic individuals; however, it does apply to many. Some outdated/not-widely-appreciated terms that are associated with the Autism Spectrum include the following: Asperger Syndrome/Disorder: an autistic individual that has significant difficulties in social interaction and nonverbal communication and does not have "impaired intelligence" or "impaired language." Childhood Disintegrative Disorder (CDD), Hellers Syndrome, and/or Disintegrative Psychosis: an autistic individual that has "developmental delays" or "severe/sudden reversals" in language, social function, and motor skills. Pervasive Developmental Disorder Not Otherwise Specified (PDD-NOS:) an autistic individual that doesn't "meet the full criteria" for "other forms" of autism. These terms, while still used in many medical spaces, have been criticized in the community for trying to categorize autism, when autism is too diverse of an experience to be categorized in such a way.

    The regressor flag. The alternate regressor flag. The agere flag. The alternate agere flag. The petre flag.Full credits to Cryptocrew for writing this page. Regression is a term used for when one's mind reverts into a different headspace/state of mind. This typically refers to age (in which one thinks like a younger individual), however it can refer to species as well (in which one thinks like an animal/different species). While regression is not LGBTQ+ in and of itself, it can play a part in queer experiences, and affect one's gender identity, attraction, or similar. This is because one's perspective on oneself and the world around them may be altered when in a different headspace, due to the fact that the mind is regressed into a previous and/or different state of thinking. Age-Regression Age-Regression or Agere is a term used to describe when someone's mind regresses to a younger headspace, usually due to trauma or neurodivergence (PTSD, anxiety, depression, etc). This regression is usually a headspace of toddlerhood, however it can also include infancy, older-children/pre-teens, and (rarely) teenagers depending on the age of the individual regressing.[1][2][3] Age-regression can be voluntary or involuntary, depending on the reason behind the regression and the individual regressing. Typically, the reason behind regression is for relief of stress/escapism, however it can have other reasons for occurring as well. Headspaces There are multiple different age-based headspaces one may enter when age-regressed. These include the following: Babyspace/Infantspace: a headspace of a baby, typically no older than three. Toddlerspace: a headspace of a toddler, typically no older than six/seven. Middlespace: a headspace of an older child or pre-teen, typically no older than thirteen. Teenspace/Teenagespace: a headspace of a teenager, typically no older than seventeen. Littlespace: a headspace of a child (typically within the toddler ages, however older ages are included as well). Terminology Big Age: the biological age of the individual. Little Age: the mental age of the individual when regressed. Little/Regressor: someone who age regresses/dreams. The term little is also used for young headmates in systems. Caregiver: a caregiver is someone that takes care of an individual while they are regressed/are in littlespace. It is sometimes shortened to CG. Not all littles/regressors need/want a caregiver. Carer/Safety Figure: alternative terms for caregivers. They are exclusively used in SFW contexts. Safety figure is sometimes shortened to SF. Cglre (Caregiver Little-Regression): when a caregiver is taking care of a little. Sflre (Safety Figure Little-Regression): when a safety figure is taking care of a little. Flip: someone who regresses and is also a caregiver/safety figure for someone else, flipping between the two. This is also sometimes called switch, however it is not recommended to call it that, as the term switch is used within kink, BDSM, NSFW, and other sexual aspects. Age-Dreaming Age-Dreaming or Agedre is a term to describe someone who has a younger headspace, but does not quite fit the categorization of age-regression.[4][5] Some examples of this include (but are not limited to) the following: Those who behave as a little, while not actually regressing. Those who are always in littlespace, and therefore don't regress. Those who regress for fun. Those who do not fully regress (half-regression, demi-regression, etc). Those who have a headspace or way of regressing that does not fit the typical age-regression that individuals expect. Those that age-dream may call themselves Dreamers. Inner-Child The Inner-Child is a term used by many to describe one's inward child-self. The inner-child becomes especially spoken of in therapy, in which (in some forms of therapy) a patient is to get in touch with their inner-child (essentially meaning they are guided into age-regression) for therapeutic methods (such as working through past emotions, childhood trauma, childhood insecurity, etc).[6] Almost everyone has an inner-child, as it's rare to fully lose one's childhood-self, regardless of how different one is from them. Species-Regression Species-Regression, Pet-Regression or Petre is a term used to describe when someone's mind regresses to an animalistic headspace, usually due to trauma or neurodivergence (PTSD, anxiety, depression, etc). This headspace is typically described as 'reverting to one's natural instincts' and it's typically done to relieve stress and to find escapism.[7] Many littles tend to experience pet-regression as well, as an overlapping experience, or they tend to be fluid between age-regression and pet-regression. Those who pet-regress may or may not also need a caregiver, as they may not be able to take care of themselves when alone in an animalistic state. This experience may also happen to alterhuman individuals (and may overlap with kinshifting) and/or furries, however it is not exclusive to them. Many who species regress also experience faunagenders, however this is not a requirement. The headspace for pet-regressors is known as petspace. Pet-Dreaming Pet-Dreaming or Petdre is a term to describe someone who has an animalistic headspace, but does not quite fit the categorization of pet-regression. Some examples of this include (but are not limited to) the following: Those who behave as an animal, while not actually regressing. Those who are always in petspace, and therefore don't regress. Those who regress for fun. Those who do not fully regress (half-regression, demi-regression, etc). Those who have a headspace or way of regressing that does not fit the typical pet-regression that individuals expect. Those that pet-dream may call themselves dreamers. Partial-Regression Partial-Regression, Semi-Regression, or Demi-Regression is a term used to describe someone who does not entirely regress. The most common experience for this is Half-Regression, in which one is half in their typical headspace, and half in a regressed headspace. This is usually applied to age-regression, however it can be applied to species regression as well. Impure-Regression Impure-Regression is a term used to describe when one acts in an unsafe way during their regression. This could be a regressor behaving in a sexual manner, a regressor causing harm towards themself or others, a regressor seeking out harmful substances, and similar. This is typically due to the fact that a regressor has a past of abuse/trauma/etc, and thus, they take it out when regressing, as they are in a less-stable mindset.[8] Impure-regressors almost always need a caretaker, as they are usually unsafe to be by themself when they regress this way. Impure-regressors usually do not always regress in this way, and they can regress in a safe and healthy manner as well the majority of the time. Misconceptions/Issues A common misconception from outsiders is that agere, agedre, and petre are related to the kink, BDSM, and other sexual communities. This is almost always not the case, as being involved in these communities when regressed could put the regressor in danger, as they are almost always unable to properly consent to sexual activity when regressed.[9] Terms that should not be associated with regression include the following: CGL (Caregiver/Little) DDLG (Daddy Dom/Little Girl) DDLB (Daddy Dom/Little Boy) MDLG (Mommy Dom/Little Girl) MDLB (Mommy Dom/Little Boy) BBLS (Big Brother/Little Sister) BBLB (Big Brother/Little Brother) BSLB (Big Sister/Little Brother) BSLS (Big Sister/Little Sister) ABDL (Adult Baby/Diaper Lover) TBDL (Teenage Baby/Diaper Lover) Ageplay Petplay Owner/Puppy Owner/Kitty Owner/Pet Those terms are used in a sexual mannerism, and one should not make posts that tag these terms with regression terms, as crosstagging can put minors regressors (and other regressors) in danger. Crosstagging these terms with regression can lead to minors coming into contact with predators, can trigger survivors who regress to cope with sexual trauma, and can spread misconceptions that regression is a kink (which is incorrect).[10][11] There are, however, some who are involved with the kink community while also being within the regression community. This is generally acceptable, so long as they do not cross-tag or share in the wrong spaces. Flags The regression flag was coined by Tumblr user yourfaveregresses on February 20, 2019. Pink is for girl regressors, purple is for non-binary regressors, blue is for boy regressors, and white is for the regression headspace. The alternate agere flag and the petre flag were coined by the same user, and have the same color meanings.[12] The alternate regression flag was coined by Tumblr user smolgothboi on April 11, 2019. Light purple is for kid/teen/tweenspace regressors, pink stands for caregivers/older siblings, white stands for pureness and purity, green stands for pet regressors, and blue stands for babyspace regressors.[13] The first flag for age-regression was coined by Tumblr user dizzy-teacup on August 7, 2017. Yellow represents happiness, blue represents trustworthy caregivers, pink is for kindness regressors give to one another/themselves, and white represents innocence of regression.[14] References ↑ https://archive.today/http://archive.today/2022.04.23-145412/https://agereinfo4u.carrd.co/%23regressioninfo ↑ https://archive.today/http://archive.today/2022.04.23-145414/https://whatisageregression.carrd.co/%23terms ↑ https://archive.today/2022.04.23-145412/https://agereinfo4u.carrd.co/%23regressioninfo ↑ https://archive.today/2022.04.23-145442/https://agereinfo4u.carrd.co/%23agedreinfo ↑ https://archive.today/2022.04.30-150054/https://allaboutarden.wordpress.com/what-is-age-dreaming/ ↑ https://archive.today/2022.02.04-030449/https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inner_child ↑ https://archive.today/2022.04.30-150526/https://prinxiskaminari.tumblr.com/post/635528945697193984 ↑ https://archive.today/2022.04.30-150908/https://allaboutarden.wordpress.com/what-is-age-regression/ ↑ https://archive.today/2022.04.30-150926/https://agereg.carrd.co/ ↑ https://archive.today/2022.04.30-151409/https://allaboutarden.wordpress.com/sfw-vs-nsfw-definitions/ ↑ https://archive.today/2022.04.30-151409/https://allaboutarden.wordpress.com/sfw-vs-nsfw-definitions/ ↑ https://archive.today/2022.04.30-151448/https://yourfaveregresses.tumblr.com/post/182948615452/sfw-regression-pride-flag-followed-by-the-sfw-age ↑ https://archive.today/2022.04.30-151839/https://chire-central.tumblr.com/post/184114702482/a-little-age-regression-flag-i-made-on-my ↑ https://archive.today/2022.04.30-151847/https://dizzy-teacup.tumblr.com/post/163928206338/sfw-age-regression-flag-for-all-sfw%23notes?ref_url=https://dizzy-teacup.tumblr.com/%23_=_
    Furries [1461 words]
    (created by Chaoticcylinder on 2021 Nov 5 Fri 22:57:22 GMT)
    The furry flag. The second furry pride flag. The third furry pride flag. The LGBTQ+ furry flag. The Furry progress pride flag.Full credits to Cryptocrew for writing this page. Furries are individuals who share a strong interest in anthropomorphic animals, to the point where it becomes a part of their life, and can affect how they view themselves and others. Furries' interest in anthropomorphic animals is typically shown through making characters and stories based around them, dressing up and behaving as said characters, making drawings of themselves as these animals, and similar. Furries sometimes include the brony community, however the two are largely separate. While being a furry is not inherently LGBTQ+, much of the furry community is on the queer spectrum, and may even have identities relating their furry identity to their queer identities. It is discovered that heterosexuality is a minority amongst the community, with only around 28% identifying as straight, and 72% identifying as gay, m-spec, or otherwise queer. A recommended video to watch in order to better understand the furry community as a whole is linked here. It includes the voices of many furries, and they touch on their experiences with the community, society, and some even speak on the childhood experience of noticing anthropomorphic animals in media. Fursonas A fursona is a term used to describe an alter ego or character created by furries. Furries will often create characters to represent themself, or to represent an identity they wish to portray in the furry community. Fursonas are often drawn, painted, or otherwise illustrated and giving backstories, likes, dislikes, and similar to them. Furries will often roleplay as their fursonas over the internet, sometimes even going as far as to roleplay as them in real life (ie; buying fursuits that appear as their fursonas, meeting at conventions with other furries and acting out their fursona, etc.) There is no limit to how many fursonas one may have, as many furries choose to create multiple fursonas. Furry Subsets While furry is typically associated with anthropomorphic mammals, there are fursonas that do not have fur and/or are not mammals, and some furrsonas aren't even earthly beings, and can be based on myths, legends, other-worlds, etc. Taurs: fursonas that have an anthropomorphic top-half and a non-anthropomorphic bottom half, similar to a centaur except both halves are some form of non-human. Avians/Featheries: fursonas that are a species of bird (fictional or not) in anthropomorphic form. Cetaceans: in the context of furries, cetaceans are fursonas based upon aquatic animals, typically dolphins, whales, and sharks. Scalies/Herps: fursonas that are of the reptilians or amphibious type, typically referring to dragons and mythical reptiles. Sparklefurries: fursonas that consist of multiple bright and vibrant colors. Terminology Furrsuits/Fursuits: suits that are made to appear as anthropomorphic animals, typically to be worn by furries at home or in conventions (usually appearing near-identical to one of their fursonas.) Only an estimated 13% of furries have furrsuits. Anthros: furrsonas that behave in a human-like fashion, often being portrayed as living in fictional societies as humans would. Ferals: furrsonas that behave in a non-human (and often wild) fashion, while still being anthropomorphic. This can also sometimes refer to animals with a non-anthropomorphic physical form combined with human-like behavior (examples: talking, human-like personalities, or human-like relationships). Alterhumans vs Furries While furries do not all identify as non-human, studies show that 1 in 3 furries identify as alterhuman (usually as therian) making a large amount of the community on the alterhuman spectrum. Out of these non-human identifying furries, 8-14% report feeling physically non-human, while 38-53% report feeling spiritually or mentally non-human. While 1 in every 3 furries identify as non-human, a non-human identification is not a requirement in being a furry, as being a furry is defined as taking a strong interest in anthropomorphic animals, not in how one identifies themselves in terms of species. Sexual Furries Sexual furries are furries that participate in sexual acts that overlap with their furry identification. When the furry fandom first begun, the fandom was a space made up of adults, many of which took place in sexual activity. Although this changed overtime, and the furry fandom now includes individuals of many ages and sexual preferences, there are still furries who take part in sexual activities (such as adult furrcons.) While it should be acknowledged that sexualizing all furries is not okay, it should not be ignored that furries can be sexual, and that there is nothing wrong with that. Some terms for sexual furries include the following: Murrsuit: a furry costume constructed for sexual purposes (as regular fursuits can be hard to function in.) Yiff: a term for when two or more furries are participating in something sexual with one another. Murr: a term similar to a purr, but with implications of sexual interest. While sexual furries are fairly common in NSFW spaces, and are involved in the community, they are not what makes the furry community as a whole, and it should not be assumed that all furries are sexual in nature. Misconceptions There are many misconceptions amongst media when it comes to furries, especially sexual furries. Listed below are some of the many misconceptions. Zoophillia It is a common misconception that being attracted to fursuits, furries, fursonas, and similar makes an individual zoophillic. This is not really the case, as a majority of the furry community does not experience zoophillic attraction. Zoophillia implies attraction to animals (which are unable to consent;) being attracted to furries, however, does not imply that, as the majority of furries/fursonas are able to consent. Fetish Another common misconception is that furries are simply creating fursonas and suits in order to please a fetish. While this is the case for some furries, it should not be assumed that all furries join the community for this, as many join the community for non-sexual reasons. Furry-related Identities Some furries find that their queer identities are connected or effected by their furry identity. Some examples of this are listed below. Furrinic: a furry that only experiences attraction to and/or only wishes to date other furries. Furrygender: a gender that is connected to ones furry identity. Sparklefurgender: a gender that is connected to sparklefurries, colorful animals, rainbows, and internet nostalgia. History The furry community is said to have originated at a science fiction convention in 1980, when a drawing of a character from Steve Gallacci’s Albedo Anthropomorphics initiated a discussion of anthropomorphic characters in science fiction novels, which initiated a discussion group that met at science fiction and comics conventions. Despite this, many fans consider the beginning of the furry community to be much earlier, using older examples of anthropomorphic animals within cartoons as evidence of this. During the 1980s, the increasing number of self-professed furry fans began to publish fanzines, developed a diverse social group, and eventually began to schedule social gatherings. By 1987, there was sufficient interest to stage the first furry convention. As the internet grew accessible, there arrived more means for furries to socialize, and thus they gained higher visibility and began to grow rapidly. Many members of furry community have cited the historical usage of anthropomorphic animals in world mythology as an inspiration (including Egyptian, Greek, Japanese and Native American traditions.) Aesop's Fables is also commonly cited on lists of furry resources. Flags The first furry flag was coined by Reddit user u/FakeFrysk on August 13th of 2018. It has no confirmed meaning. The second furry flag was coined by Reddit user u/AtomicFurry76 on March 16th of 2019. Blue is for loyalty and pride, white is for purity and safety within the community, and yellow is for positivity that emanates from the community. The third furry flag was coined by Tumblr user beyond-mogai-pride-flags on August 17th of 2021. It has no confirmed meaning. The LGBTQ+ furry flag was coined by Twitter user @FursonaPins. It takes after the harmony/community flag, and is specifically supposed to be trans and POC inclusive, while being dedicated to queer furries.

    Alterhuman [9601 words]
    (created by Chaoticcylinder on 2021 Nov 5 Fri 22:53:05 GMT)
    The alterhuman flag. The second alterhuman flag. The third alterhuman flag. The fourth alterhuman flag. The fifth alterhuman flag. The sixth alterhuman flag. The non-human unity flag. The nonhuman flag (includes nonhuman headmates)Note: the owner of this blog post did not write any of the content on this page. Alterhuman is a term that refers to someone who does not fit the traditional standard of what is considered human, and/or does not identify as human. This can include non-human system members and introjects; however, it also includes singlets who don't quite fit the term human, or identify as non-human to an extent.[1] An alterhuman identity is neither a gender nor part of the LGBT+ umbrella, but may have a tie to one's gender identity, attraction, or sex. Some examples of this are in the use of labels such as alterhumangender, genderNH, genderkin, nonhumansexual, medusan, faunasex, and similar identities. Alterhumans acknowledge that their current body is biologically a human, and they do not try to use their alterhuman identities to do harmful sexual acts on non-sapient beings (such as zoophillic acts). Alterhumans also do not try to claim they are changing their body's biological species; however, they may or may not get surgery to appear more as their kintype. If one has a non-human identity, they may also experience species regression (however, this is not always the case). Terminology Otherkin is a shortened version of "otherkind," which is in reference to terms like "humankind." For example, someone who is elfkin identifies as and considers themself to be an elf. There are many reasons why someone may identify as non-human in the otherkin sense, with explanations ranging from spiritual to psychological. Some common explanations include but are not limited to past lives, imprinting, or having a non-human soul.[2] The noun kintype, in otherkin contexts, refers to the type of non-human one identifies as; for example, a hyrdakin person's kintype would be "dragon." Some more alterhuman words that are used in the same manner as kintype are fictotype (for fictionkin), theriotype (for therian), hearttype (for otherhearted), and flicktype (for fictionflickers). The verb to kin is sometimes used to mean "to have a certain otherkin identity." This term is controversial, however, because of the potential implication that having an otherkin identity is a choice that can be easily gained and dropped.[3] Otherkin Otherkin refers to someone who identifies partially or wholly as something non-human, usually involuntarily.[4] Listed below are just few of the many kintypes an individual may have. They may identify with fictional, factual, or animalistic beings (as spoken of further in this page) or they may identify as something more specific or 'out there' such as identifying as a planet, landscape, chemical, etc. Kintypes are unlimited, and can be just about anything. Mythkin: identifying as something found in mythology, such as a unicorn, merperson, dragon, etc. Divinekin: identifying as something with divine origin, such as an angel, demon, or other deity. Faekin: identifying as any type of fae, such as fairies or elves. Alienkin: identifying as an alien, or any non-earthly being. Robotkin: identifying as a robot, AI, or similar technology. Objectkin: identifying as an object of some kind. Conceptkin: identifying as a concept of some kind. This may overlap with fictionkin and musickin. Musickin: identifying as a song, album, tune, or other forms of music. Plantkin: identifying as a tree, flower, or other plant. Foodkin: identifying as a food of some kind. Polykin: having multiple kintypes; identifying as multiple beings. Halfkin or demikin: Those who identify partially as another species/a fictional being, rather than fully. A kin identity such as a Werewolfkin could be considered a halfkin under certain circumstances. Autokin: not identifying with any species or fictional species, but rather just identifying as oneself. If one's otherkin identity and gender overlap, they may call themself kingender. Therian Therians or animalkin are individuals who feel their spirit is non-human, typically being an earthly animal. They are included under otherkin, though they describe those with more earthly-based spirits, and do not include creatures that are mythical, fictional, deities, magical, etc. Therians may have animalistic impulses and instincts such as biting, hissing, scratching and panting, and they also may 'shift' and feel more animalistic at times, though not all therians shift. Some may engage in quadrobics (depending on the theriotype), wear faux tails, ears, and wings, and join therian packs to meet other members of the community. Some therians may not identify as otherkin, and the therian community is largely its own separate thing, with some overlapping points.[5] Some therians may also be furries, and use fursuits or fursonas to represent their theriotype; however, this is not a necessity. If one's therian identity and gender overlap, they may call themself theriagender. Fictionkin Fictionkin (formerly known as mediakin) are those who identify as something found in fiction, including characters, species, glitches, etc. This may or may not be considered otherkin, since fictionkin includes human fictotypes; however, it is typically included under the otherkin umbrella. Some fictionkin believe they are reincarnated, some follow psychological beliefs for their identity, while some follow metaphysical beliefs (such as soul collecting).[6] Some broad terms under the fictonkin umbrella include the following: OCkin: identifying as an original character. Can be owned by oneself, an acquaintance, a YouTuber, etc. Rolekin, Roleplaykin, RPkin: identifying as a character oneself or someone else roleplays as. Uncreated Fictionkin: identifying as a fictional entity that is not yet created. They may or may not find sources of this entity when it is created. If one's fictionkin identity and gender overlap, they may call themself fictkingender. Factkin Factkin or factualkin are those who kin existing or existed individuals through the notion of the multiverse belief. A factkin individual believes that they, to some capacity, are mentally/emotionally/spiritually an alternate version of another living individual. They acknowledge that they are not in that individuals head; however, the common belief is that they contain an alternate version of the soul of said individual, a soul from a different universe. A carrd on factualkin explains it as "a factual base that had cracks filled in with fiction- you aren't in another person's head, but you do have who they portray into the world (and for celebrities, fan things that have been put out to the world, like RPF, headcanons, etc)." Although the term factkin may have begun as a term coined by trolls, it has been noted that there are these set experiences that are real and existing. There is the preconceived notion that factkin is "identity theft." Being factkin, however, is not an attempt to steal an individual's identity, but rather is when one acknowledges their own connection to an individual, a well as the experience of their mentality, emotional state, and mind. Factkin individuals do not attempt to claim someone else's individuality, and they certainly do not attempt to 'replace' said person, or claim that the other person is 'not real.' Factkin individuals also do not attempt to copy the person they kin, as they know that they are a different version of that person, and there is no need to copy someone with that fact in mind. It does not include the intent to steal any identity/life, but rather includes the intent to connect to a life and form a bond. Some broad terms under the factkin umbrella include the following: Unknownkin: identifying as a person one doesn't know. An unknownkin may or may not succesfully find the person they identify with in the future. Unbornkin: identifying as a person who has not yet been born. This term can overlap with forwardsoul; however, it does not have to. If one's factkin identity and gender overlap, they may call themself factuagender. Choicekin Choicekin is a term used for someone who 'chose' to be otherkin. This term is often misunderstood, as many otherkin individuals argue that you cannot choose a kintype; however, there are many metaphysical explanations as to why this may happen. ’A voluntary type of identity where someone chooses to become something (animal, mythical, or fictional). It was an active choice to begin with, but after it’s become cemented in your identity you don’t have to maintain it. It’s become a kintype, and can’t really be “dropped”. It also can’t be changed, and at some point you could get kin memories from this kintype.’ - plurgai on Tumblr, unknown date. For one, someone who is choicekin may say that, through spiritual connection, they latched onto a species or being until their spirit merged with said being. An example of this would be someone who spiritually connected with parrots until they felt that their own spirit had shifted and/or merged with a parrots spirit. Here are other ways one may explain their choicekin identities: One may say they had past lives, and chose to merge with the spirits of the past, and wouldn't have had otherkin experiences unless they made this choice. One may choose to find a creature or object to be imprinted on, thus choosing their otherkin identity. One may choose to bond their soul/spirit to another soul/spirit or to a presence, thus altering their humanity, and choosing their otherkin identity. Once one has chosen to be otherkin, it is hard to take it back or change their minds. This choice is typically permanent, and usually cannot be removed or dropped; however, there are exceptions. When one can drop their kintype, it usually is a hard and draining process. For example, if one chooses to bond their soul/spirit to something, they may be able to break that bond; however, it would likely take a lot of effort, energy, and time. Because of this, it is uncommon to remove one's kintype. It is important to note that most choicekin individuals cannot drop their kintype, even with effort, and that the act of dropping a kintype is not common amongst the choicekin community. If one's choicekin identity and gender overlap, they may call themself choicekingender. Otherlink Otherlink is a term used to describe someone who voluntarily chose a non-human or fictional entity to identify with.[7] While comparable to choicekin, otherlinkers tend to easily be able to drop their linktype, and typically can quickly change to a different one. Otherlinkers typically have to maintain their identity through different acts, or it will fade away. Choicekin individuals do not have to maintain it, as when they pick it up, it is there to stay (unless they actively work to drop it). In summary, choicekin individuals typically have a more attached alterhuman identity, while otherlinkers have a less attached identity that can easily 'fall off' if not maintained. Essentially, the differences are: Links have to be maintained, while kintypes do not. Links can come and go fluidly, while kintypes do not come and go in such a way. Links can be edited, kintypes cannot. Links can be easily dropped, kintypes cannot be easily dropped (if dropped at all). If one's otherlink identity and gender overlap, they may call themself olinkgender. Copinglink Copinglink is a term used to describe someone who voluntarily chose a non-human or fictional entity in order to cope with trauma, stress, mental illness, etc.[8] They may or may not permanently be that non-human or fictional identity after this begins; however, in many cases, one can drop their link when they no longer need it. Others find their copinglink as permanent as any other alterhuman, and that should be remembered and respected. However, if it does stay, they may identify as choicekin, otherspin, linker-turned-kin, or otherkin. If one's copinglink identity and gender overlap, they may call themself colinkgender. Constelic Constelic is an alterhuman term for someone who collects identities of animals, fictional characters, mythological beings, and otherwise. It is often done by choice, though it is not always, and constelic identities can be dropped, hoarded, and have priority over others. Constelic identities are often casual, “in the background”, or not very intensive, though this may not always be the case. Furthermore, there may be specific tiers of how much someone relates to said identities.[9] These identities in question may be called constels (ex: “I have a deer constel.”) or they may just be called an ID. Constels may also be referred to by a word related to the identity, along with the suffix “-stelic” (ex: I am deerstelic). Someone who is constelic may range from only having one ID, to having a very large number of them, or anything in between. Reasons for why someone is constelic may vary. Popular reasons may be because of hyperfixation, projection onto characters, a need to “hoard” things (possibly due to neurodivergence), or simply for fun. If one's constellic identity and gender overlap, they may call themself constelicgender. Adaptkin Adaptkin is a term used to describe otherkin individuals- usually fictionkin individuals; however, other kintypes can apply- who became otherkin after discovering their species/being (or in the case of fictionkin, world/character). They would not have been otherkin before this, nor would they have had any memories or experiences relating to their kintypes before discovering this. This is not an overlapping term with choicekin, as their kintype was not a choice, but rather just happened unintentionally upon their discovery. There are many reasons adaptkin may give for how/why this may have occured. A few reasons may include, but are not limited to... One may believe that they were marked/imprinted on by the discovery of their kintype, and would not have been alterhuman if they had not discovered it. One may believe that their soul was bound to whatever caused their discovery, or that their kintype swapped souls, or shared pieces of their soul with them. Some otherspin individuals may identify as adaptkin as well, as hyperfixation is (usually) not a choice. If one's adaptkin identity and gender overlap, they may call themself adkingender. Demihuman Demihuman is a term used to describe an individual that has lost their connection to humanity, and thus has picked up a connection to non-human identification. This loss of connection is usually due to trauma or neurodivergence; however, it does not have to be.[10] Often times, a demihuman individual will identify with xenogenders, anonbinary genders, and non-binary genders. This is because they typically tend to disconnect from human structures, including the gender binary structure. This is not the case for all demihumans, but for those who do experience this, they may identify as itamigender or kotogender. Some common terms under the demihuman umbrella include the following: Ahuman: someone who has fully lost any connection to humanity. Librahuman: someone who feels 1-50% human, due to disconnection from humanity. Parahuman: someone who feels 50-99% human, due to disconnection from humanity. If one's demihumanity and gender overlap, they may call themself exhumic. Beforan Beforan is a term used to describe someone who feels as though they had a life before the one they are currently living, without being of a different species than their current one. This word describes someone who believes they’ve had a past life, and feels as though the term otherkin does not fit their experiences. This can also be very helpful for non-human headmates/introjects within systems, if they feel as though they had past lives before becoming a headmate, while not being of a different species. For example, a beforan elven headmate would have memories of being an elf in their past lives. Although a beforan person is not of a different species in their current life, they may have had a different race, gender, sex, body, etc. For example, they may have been blonde in their past life, and have red hair in their current one. All that matters is that they were of the same species. If one's beforan identity and gender overlap, they may call themself beforangender. Forwardsoul Forwardsoul is a term used to describe all otherkin and/or alterhuman individuals who percieve their alterhumanity as an upcoming future life, rather than a past life. They still may describe their experiences as having metaphysical, spiritual, and/or imprintment; however, they believe that these experiences are a shadowing of their future lives, rather than their past or current one's. They may put the word 'forward' in front of their kintype (ie. forwardangel, forwardfox, etc). For example, a fowardrose is someone whose kintype is a rose; however, they believe that their kin experiences are because they are going to be reborn as a rose in their next life, or that their soul will transfer to a rose when they die. A forwardsoul individual is typically very spiritual, metaphysical, and/or religious; however, they do not have to be. All that it takes to be required to be a forwardsoul is that one believes that their kintype is a message/sign of the future, rather than the past or present. If a forwardsoul person believes they are going to be reborn into the same species they currently are (such as a human who believes in reincarnation, or a owl headmate who believes in reincarnation) then they may call themself forwardstill, as it implies the 'still' implies they are still of the same species. If one's forwardsoul identity and gender overlap, they may call themself forsoulgender. Futuresoul Futuresoul is a term used to describe alterhuman individuals that believe that their kintype is a sign of the future, while not being reincarnation or death. There are two subsets to this listed below. Futuresame: someone that believes their kintype is a sign of the future within their same lifetime/timeline. Futurestill: someone that believes that sometime in the future, something major will happen with their kintype (such as physical shifting becoming possible, or being able to switch into their kintypes body). Morphen Morphen is a term used to describe someone who is alterhuman and believes that they morphed (metaphorically or physically) or physically/spiritually moved from their kintype's form to their current human form. Some examples of this are listed below. Someone who's kintype is a shapeshifter, and they believe that they have become stuck as a human from shapeshifting. Someone who's kintype can body swap, and they believe that they have become stuck in the body they swapped into. Someone who's kintype can take over bodies, and they believe that is how they ended up in a human body. Someone who's kintype is a spirit, and they believe they entered a human body. Trauma Nonhuman Trauma Nonhuman is a term to describe someone who became alterhuman due to trauma. Many individuals with trauma end up disconnecting from society, and this can go further to disconnecting to humanity in its entirety. This can cause a disconnect, or a non-human awakening. This term is not to be used by individuals who wish to dehumanize trauma survivors. It is only to be used in a positive manner by the survivor themself. ND-Inhuman ND-Inhuman or ND Alterhuman is a term to describe someone who became alterhuman due to neurodivergence. Often times, those with neurodivergence struggle with human concepts; this struggling can cause a disconnect, or a non-human awakening. ND-Inhuman is typically experienced by autistic individuals; however, it can be any form of neurodivergence that induces such an experience. This term is not to be used by

    Full credits to Cryptocrew for writing this page. Disclaimer: this page is not here to be used as self-diagnosis, self-identification, or promotion to begin a system. This page is simply to be seen as informational. Whether or not one self-diagnoses, self-identifies, and/or creates a system is up to them. Interlocking symbol of plurality. The amphersand, a common symbol used in the plural community.Warning: This page contains discussion of integration, dormancy, trauma (abuse, harassment, assault, miscarriage, stillbirth, suicide, death), and exclusionism. Please proceed with caution. Systems, Collectives, and/or Plurals are those who experience being more than one entity in one physical body [1]. Systems are under the neurodivergent umbrella, and are not inherently LGBT+, but being plural can impact sexuality, romantic orientation, attraction, identities, and/or gender (such as with systemfluid). Systems can also commonly intersect with LGBT+ experiences[2]. The experiences may overlap to the point of one's queer identities being a large part of headmates, such as within queergenic systems. The treblesand, another symbol used in the plural community.Those in a system are called system members, headmates, or alters; though, it is important to be aware that 'alter' is medical terminology and may be considered desapizing by some. It is always a positive idea to ask what a system is comfortable with when it comes to terminology, no matter where the terminology stemmed from. There are multiple different types of systems and ways which individuals might be a system. The term system is open to anyone who experiences being more than one entity in one physical body and has been that way for years [3]. The opposite of systems are Singlets/Singletons/Monominds. They are considered to be "typical" in society. The plural spiral. Origins Origins or Formations are processes that formed systems/members/headspace locations. Although these terms are usually used to refer to how a system came into existence, they are also sometimes used on individual headmates (and sometimes even locations in the headspace.) For example, one may say that a layer in their headspace is neurogenic and/or that a headmate in their system is agenic. Adaptive An Adaptive System is a system that formed in response to trauma or other adversity (neurodivergence, disabilities, stress, etc.) A common trait of such systems is viewing their plurality as adapting, healing, and overcoming obstacles as a team. Many traumagenic systems prefer to use this term so that their trauma isn't consistently pushed back into their face. Subsets to the adaptive umbrella include the following: Lonegenic: a system that formed due to/in order to cope with loneliness, isolation, and/or neglect. Isolgenic/Socinagenic: a system that formed due to isolation and/or social neglect. Solumgenic: a system that formed due to loneliness. Neurogenic: a system that formed due to/in order to cope with neurodivergence. Addictogenic: a system that formed due to addictive disorders. Adjustogenic: a system that formed due to adjustment disorders. Attractogenic: a system that formed due to attractional disorders. Autigenic: a system that formed due to autism or autistic traits. BPD System/Bordergenic: a system that formed due to borderline personality disorder. Ceregenic: a system that formed due to brain injury/in order to cope with brain injury. Cognigenic: a system that formed due to cognitive disorders. Consugenic: a system that formed due to eating disorders. Commugenic: a system that formed due to communication disorders. Convergenic: a system that formed due to conversion disorder. Deligenic: a system that formed due to delusions. Depressigenic: a system that formed due to depressive disorders. Develogenic: a system that formed due to developmental disorders. Disrugenic: a system that formed due to disorders that disrupt focus, concentration, and/or emotions. Dissociagenic: a system that formed due to dissociation. Drawalgenic: a system that formed due to substance withdrawal. Epilegenic: a system that formed due to epilepsy. Factitiogenic: a system that formed due to factitious disorder, body integrity dysphoria, and/or manchausen syndrome by proxy. Fluctugenic: a system that formed due to disorders that cause mood-swings. Fixigenic: a system that formed due to hyperfixation. Intellegenic: a system that formed due to intellectual disabilities. Learnigenic: a system that formed due to learning disorders. Lusiogenic: a system that formed due to disorders that cause delusions and/or hallucinations. Moodgenic: a system that formed due to mood disorders. Neurotraumagenic: a system originating from trauma caused in part or in whole, or made worse by, by a neurodiversity.[4] Obsecogenic: a system that formed due to obsessive-compulsive disorders. Paragenic: a system that formed due to maladaptive daydreaming disorder or other alike neurodivergencies. A Paracontinuum is someone who is stuck between plurality and maladaptive daydreaming disorder. Postpartugenic: a system that formed due to postpartum depression, postpartum anxiety, postpartum psychosis, and/or postpartum OCD. Procegenic: a system that formed due to auditory processing disorder, sensory processing disorder, or both. Psychatraumagenic/Psychiatraumagenic: a system originating from trauma caused, in part or in whole, or made worse by mental illness.[5] Psychetraumagenic/Ipsetraumagenic: a system originating from trauma caused, in part or in whole, or made worse by mental illness or neurodiversity.[6] Psygenic: a system that formed from psychosis or psychotic-related disorders. Pulsigenic: a system that formed due to impulsive or compulsive disorders. Somatigenic: a system that formed due to somatic symptom disorder. Somnigenic: a system that formed due to sleeping disorders. Syndrogenic: a system that formed due to psychological syndromes. Synegenic: a system that formed due to synesthesia. Thougenic: a system that formed due to thought disorders. Xiegenic: a system that formed due to anxiety disorders. Outertraumagenic: a system that formed due to someone else's trauma affecting the core/already existing headmates. This could be due to getting secondary trauma from it, due to being stressed/worried for the individual affected, due to the desire to protect/help that individual, etc. Stressgenic: a system that formed due to stress/in order to cope with stress. Traumagenic: a system that formed due to/in order to cope with trauma. This could be any form of trauma. Traumagenic systems are more common to form under the age of nine, however this is not the case for all traumagenic systems. Alphagenic: a system that formed due to Type A trauma. Betagenic: a system that formed due to Type B trauma. Exotraumagenic: a system that formed due to exotrauma. Extraumagenic: a system that formed due to trauma, but is unsure/does not know what that trauma was. Intratraumagenic: a system (typically a subsystem, sidesystem, or similar) that formed due to intratrauma, Peiragenic: a system that formed due to trauma, specifically caused by a suicide-attempt. Phytogenic: a system that formed due to abuse. Created/Willogenic A Created System is a system that was purposefully formed. The creation is typically spiritual/metaphysical in nature, however it can also be psychologically forming beings in order to assist or protect oneself. Created systems are not typically made for fun, and those that are made for fun are typically by folks that are unaware/uneducated on the difficulties that can come with plurality. A created headmate is known as a Thoughtform, and the process of creation is known as Thoughtforming. A Willogenic System is a system that was created purposefully/willed into existence, and has no connection to Tulpamancy. This term is specifically to separate from Tulpamancy in a respectful way, as the Tulpamancy community has very specific practices and culture. Subsets to these two umbrellas include the following: Araisagenic/Imagenic: a system that formed through escapism and speaking to folks who were not there until they became real. Archogenic: a system that was created by an artisian or crafted in a similar manner. Catharigenic/Catarigenic: a system that was unintentionally created/created naturally. Daemogenic: a system that was formed through daemonism/is made of daemons. Kiagenic: a system/headspace/layer/member/etc that formed out of chaos/pre-existing or primordial potential energy for existence, brought or manifested into existence or awareness via gentle nudging of unconscious processes. This term is also used to describe a non-intentionally created system. Maliciogenic: a system (usually a subsystem) that was created with malicious intent. Oftentimes these are made by persecutors, however that is not always the case. O-System: a system made up of original-characters (OCs) created by other headmates. Headmates in these systems are known as Omates. Parogenic: a system that was created through thought-based or metaphysical means, usually deliberately. Primagenic: a system shaped around an original universe created by other headmates through writing, art, or other creative mediums. Tulpagenic: a system that was formed through Tulpamancy. Tulpamancy is commonly seen as a practice exclusive for Buddhists, and because of this, some claim it should only be used by Buddhists; however, historically, its use has been by non-Buddhists as well, as seen in this article. This term is not under the willogenic umbrella. Endogenic An Endogenic System is a system that formed due to reasons outside of trauma.[7]This includes any system that formed outside of trauma (though some endogenic systems have traumagenic origins/mixed origins as well.) This includes spirigenic/metagenic systems, created systems, and some forms of multigenic systems. Other subsets to the endogenic umbrella include the following: Aethergenic: a system that cannot be explained through psychological means. Cosmogenic: a system that formed due to cosmos or celestial forces to which Earth is. Kiagenic: a system that formed out of chaos/pre-existing or primordial potential energy for existence, brought or manifested into existence or awareness via gentle nudging of unconscious processes. Acquiregenic: a system that formed due to an acquired biological characteristic. This may include some forms of neurogenic and physiogenic in some cases. Chaogenic: a system with chaotic origins or so many different origins that it seems chaotic. Gendiegenic: a system that formed due to gender (in some way, shape, or form.) This could be from gender dysphoria, from genders manifesting into headmates, etc. Inheritgenic: when someone believes that they inherited plurality from a relative. Magiangenic: a system that formed due to magic, either real magic of fictional magic. Melogenic: a system that formed/was pulled into existence through a song or melody. Voidgenic: a system that came from a void or is unexplainable. Kin System A Kin System (or kincontinuum) is a term used to describe someone who has systemhood and kintypes overlapping or intertwined. This includes (but is not limited to): A system that forms headmates based on their kintypes. These are usually considered introjects, as they represent the beings the individual is kin to. Someone who is trapped between being otherkin and plural, such as having kintypes that have their own autonomy, but only when shifted. A median system that consists entirely of different parts of an individuals kintypes as their own autonomous beings. A kin system can be of any origin, and the system may have headmates that are not kin-related as well. System-Kin is a term under this umbrella. Its when an individual forms a system, due to the fact that their kintypes are in a system in whatever connectus they are from. Because they are kin to a system, their mind forms a system in response, based upon who they are kin to. Mixed Origins/Multigenic/Polygenic A Mixed Origin, Multigenic, or Polygenic System is a term used to describe when a collective has multiple origins. Subsets to the multigenic umbrella include the following: Algenic: a system that technically fits all origins available to them, but only some are big enough/important enough to the system to be identified with. Compogenic: a term for a system member with multiple/mixed origins, but the origins are either unclear or the member does not wish to disclose them. Fleirgenic: a system that has mixed origins but doesn’t discern most or all of their origins due to finding it unimportant or due to fearing it would cause internal hierarchy. Horizigenic: a system that tries to collect terms to describe their origins, but their origins seem to blend together and/or wear out at some point. Isoscegenic: a system that mainly has one origin but has a few headmates that differ in origin. Mavrigenic: a system that seems to "consume" origins, sucking them in like a blackhole. Origin-Flux: when newer headmates have different origins than the original origin that formed the system. Pangenic: a system that fits all origins available to them (not including closed-off spiritual/religious practices that the body is not included under.) Supragenic: a system that existed previously for natural reasons, but due to trauma, its function/origins have changed. Othergenic An Othergenic System is a system that is neither endogenic or traumagenic in nature (and is also not a combination of the two.) Subsets to the othergenic umbrella include the following: Agenic/Nihilumgenic: a system that has no origins/do not identify with any origins. Spontaneous System/Spontagenic: a system that seemingly appeared out of nowhere, with no definite cause. Xeno-Origin/Xenogenic: a system that can't be contained by human understandings of plurality, and instead uses terminology relating to animals, plants, and things to describe originhood. Spirigenic/Metagenic A Spirigenic System is a system that has spiritual or religious origins/were created though spiritual means. A Metagenic System is a system that has spiritual or metaphysical origins, not necessarily tied to any religions or practices. Both the spirigenic and metagenic umbrella hold similar subsets, which include the following: Psychegenic: a system that is plural/became plural due to multiple souls being in the same body. Possesive System: when an individual consents to a spirit (or spirits) possessing them in the long-term, and thus becomes a system. Seelegenic: when a system formed due the splitting of the core/current headmate’s soul(s); the soul being split caused each individual piece to form an individual being to hold it. A Seeleplex is a seelegenic system with at least one sidesystem that has the same soul-splitting mechanics as the main system. A similar term to seelegenic is Amegenic, in which most or all of a system shares a soul, however in this case it is not due to the soul being split. Soulbond System: a system that formed through soulbonding. Unknown/Quoigenic An Unknown System is a system that is unsure of their origins/has unknown origins. A Quoigenic System is a system that does not wish to share their origins, do not find their origins relevant, or thinks it is the wrong question to ask; this may be due to them being unaware or unsure of their origins, however that is not always the case. Both the quoigenic and unknown umbrella hold similar subsets, which include the following: Cryptogenic: a system that does not know their origins. Pertegenic: a system that does not know their actual origin due to memory loss/alteration. Praesigenic: a system that does not wish to share their origins to someone or anyone. Miscellaneous These are origin terms that could be endogenic, traumagenic, and/or othergenic in nature, depending on the situation. Biogenic: a system that formed from biological/genetic causes. Chimeragenic: a system that formed due to biological chimerism. Congenic: a system with complicated origins. Cryogenic: a system that came out of nowhere, came from the cold, has frozen (gone dormant) before and is now thawing, and/or multiple of the above. Esogenic: a term to describe either an origin (or mix of origins) that only the system/headmates understand, a system that can describe their origin but has no title for it yet, and/or a system that has multiple origins but does not know every type they have. Iatrogenic: a system that formed due to being convinced they were a system and/or due to internal family systems therapy. If it is specifically related to internal family systems therapy than they may call themselves IFSgenic. Innate System: a system that was created at birth and/or formed from traits one had since birth. Intragenic: a system that formed through continuous mimicry of real or fictitious individuals. This could be neurogenic if its related to neurodivergence/disorders and/or traumagenic if its related to ways to cope with trauma, however it is not exclusive to these experiences. Kaksbased: a system that was born with two individuals within the same body, but did not see it as a system until they gained more members. Psuedogenic: a system that fomed due to lying about being plural until they actually became plural. The system should acknowledge what they did was wrong, but cannot deny that they are now a system. These lies may have been traumatic. Pariogenic: a system that is made up mostly (or entirely) of walk-ins and/or soulbonds. Protogenic: a system that has been around since birth/as long as they remember or cannot remember how they formed. Psychologenic: a system with psychological origins. This includes psychological-based adaptive systems as well as any endogenic or othergenic system that is psychological in nature. Medical Terms DID, OSDD, and USDD/UDD are three terms often used to describe traumagenic systems, however they are not exclusively traumagenic, and some endogenic systems may be diagnosed with these as well. DID is short for dissociative identity disorder, and is a medical way of being plural for those who experience amnesia (typically between switches). This means that any system, regardless of whether or not they have traumatic origins, can have DID, as the only characterized trait is that they must experience amnesia.[8] OSDD is short for otherwise specified dissociative identity disorder, and is a medical way of being plural which includes those who don't have amnesia (1b) or systems that do not switch/are not entirely separate. (1a).[9] This means that any system, regardless of origin, can be diagnosed in this way, as median systems and systems that don't experience amnesia can be both traumagenic and endogenic. OSDD-2, OSDD-3, and OSDD-4 are not typically associated with plurality, however they can be in some cases (such as with neurogenic systems). USDD/UDD is short for unspecified dissociative disorder, and is a medical way of being plural that describes an individual who doesn't match the criteria for DID or OSDD, while still presenting dissociative systems. USDD is also used to describe dissociative disorders that do not fit DPDR, Fugue State, DID, or OSDD, meaning USDD can be associated with singlets as well, and is not inherently plural in nature. An article that touches more on the topic of DID/OSDD being non-exclusive is listed here. A short article that speaks on USDD is listed here. MPD MPD or "Multiple Personality Disorder" is an outdated term to describe systems. This term is disliked amongst the community, for reasons that include (but are not limited to): It implies all systems are disordered. The term "personality" implies headmates are simply behaviors or ways of thinking. It was used in a manner that implied all headmates were different sides of one individual, which is usually not true. This term, although mainly outdated, is

Our guidelines regarding typing quirks Any typing quirk that interferes with the letters of words or the overall comprehensibility of words - no matter how “minor” - must be translated, as screen readers cannot always “understand” what is being said. Posts that include the use of typing quirks must include a translation within the post if one is able to be provided. If a translation cannot be provided by the user posting, they must ask for one to be provided (see list above). Users who do not either provide a translation or ask for one to be provided will have their posts removed, and may receive a warning or block if the behaviour continues. These rules are in place to ensure that the wiki is accessible to those who use a screen reader, as well as dyslexic, hard-of-sight, and other disabled/neurodivergent individuals who may struggle to read typing quirks.
