So while doing my research for this post, I read a lot of posts over on TDF by the original people calling themselves “animal-hearted”. I noticed a lot of similar experiences being reported (but of course), and I thought it would be informative to make a list of sorts. My hope is to provide a sort of portrait of what being animal-hearted is like from the perspective of those who first brought the term into usage. I think it’s really cool to look at the roots of a community because you start to see what’s changed, what’s been forgotten, and what you might resonate with that you’ve never considered.
Huh. I guess I’m cathearted, then.
