Alterhuman Tag Meme (Blank)

Alterhuman Tag Meme:

made by @Otherkin (SpaceHey URL: Raikou) on Vent on the 31st of January 2022.

Alterhuman, as defined for the purpose of this tag meme, is any identity or experience that differs from what is generally considered human. This tag meme is focused on those with some degree of nonhumanity (therianthropes, otherkin, nonhuman fictionkin, copinglinkers, otherhearted, etc.).

You are welcome to skip any question that doesn't relate to you / you don't want to answer as long as you do not remove it.

  • Why do you consider yourself alterhuman? Is it spiritually based, psychologically based, neurodivergency, coping, for fun? A combination?
  • How did you discover / come to terms with your alterhumanity? Did you have a special awakening experience, or did you always know?
  • Which alterhuman communities are you active in, if any? How did you discover these?
  • What is your view of humanity? Do you hate humans, love humans, find them interesting? If anything, what bothers you about humanity; how can this be fixed?
  • How do you feel about being referred to as human? Phrases like "you're only human"?
  • How open are you with being alterhuman? Have you told anybody IRL, or do you only stick to alterhuman spaces?

About You:

For the following questions you can focus on a single identity or you can answer for multiple.

  • What are your specific alterhuman identities? How did you discover them? What do they mean to you?
  • Do you experience shifts or supernumerary phantom limbs for any of these? How do they feel?
  • What do you think about your identity? Do you like your species / the character you identify as? Why or why not?
  • Have you / do you plan to have anything done to affirm your species (surgeries, body modification, tattoos)? Is there anything you would want to physically have if it were possible?
  • Is your identity considered uncommon? Do you know of many people who share your identity/species?

  • Do you express your alterhumanity through any gear? Do you dress or act a certain way that connects you with your identity?

Noemata refers to any innate knowledge about your kintype/hearttype/sympath. You can talk about canon occurrences, your species in general, feelings you have in relation to your alterhuman identity. Feel free to skip over anything if you don't feel that it applies.

If you're focusing on a specific identity, you can name them here:

  • Is there anything you dislike about the source, your species, or how people interpret you?
  • Do you experience canonsickness/homesickness related to your identity? How do you cope with this?
  • Who do you miss? Did you have any important friendships, close family members, mates, romantic relationships?
  • Do you search for canonmates/sourcemates, others of your species, or do you keep to yourself?
  • If humans existed in your world, what did you think of them?
  • What does 'home' mean to you in relation to your alterhumanity? Is it where you lived, or is it something different?
  • Do you have dreams of being yourself? How does it make you feel? Do you usually consider them to be noemata?
  • Any interesting or important noemata / headcanons / facts regarding yourself you want to talk about?
  • Are there any quotes that resonate with you, either said to you/by you or just in general?
  • Did you own any objects that meant a lot to you? Do you have / want anything similar now?
  • Anything else you want to add? Is there anything you have never been asked that you want to share?

  • Would you like to tag someone?
