Briefly, some news of interest to otherkin from 2015 that I haven't previously reported on this blog. In chronological order:

I have an idea for how I could run this blog in a way that I hope would be efficient enough to be manageable. I could post to our Twitter about news articles as soon as I find them. Then, at the end of each month, I could post a digest to here and to our Tumblr. It would just be a collection of headlines, links, and brief summaries, rather than whole articles of original writing with complete citations. What do you think?

As always, there's a lot of news out there and I can't do this alone, so anyone who can help out by posting news links in this blog as they find them would be very much appreciated.

Trigger warnings: Publicity trouble, derision.

Grantland.com has a couple of articles about the recent documentaries that have animal people in them. Grantland, established in 2011, is an online magazine focusing on sports and pop culture. ESPN owns it.1 Both of these articles come from Tara Ariano’s article series about television documentaries that Ariano considers to be “freak shows.” The tone is derisive. Yesterday’s article dealt with Boomer the Dog on Taboo USA.2 Another article in the series, from last April, talks about the appearance of Steven and Timothy in “I think I’m an animal.”3

For a round-up of all news about the “I think I’m an animal” documentary, see this earlier post on Otherkin News, which I updated today with more links.
