What is Alterhumanity?
Alterhuman is a word for anyone who doesn't fit with a traditional view of humanity. This includes those who identify as nonhuman, such as otherkin and therianthropy, and those who identiy as entities from fiction, such as fictionkin and fictives. This also includes voluntary nonhumanity or fictionhood, such as copinglinks, otherlinks, or fictionheirs.
Alterhuman doesn't quite equal nonhuman though. Those who deeply resonate or connect with nonhumans or fictional entities, which is otherhearted and synpath, are also alterhuman. Delusion-caused nonhumanity is also considered alterhuman.
Some identities may be more debatable with if they count as alterhuman, but they are open to it. This includes systems, which are covered on another page, furries, or movements like voidpunk.
Notes About Credible Sources
There is a lot of misinformation about alterhumanity circulating and kinity especially has a long history of trolling and bad faith label changes, so it's important to be able to recognize credible information. In general it's a good idea to fact-check and verify everything you read, and use multiple sources instead of just one. The best resources link their sources and are made with input from multiple indiviudals.
Carrds are not normally good sources of information. Remember, anyone can make a Carrd, and there is almost never way of contacting Carrd makers. Misinformation tends to spread with Carrds ranging from minor to downright dangerous. Certain online communities may also foster misinformation, such as TikTok. Wikis where anyone can edit should be taken with a grain of salt, especially fandom ones, but you can look for quality control.
Blogs or other public sources of information are good if taken critically. It's a good sign if a blog encourages hard questions or analysis and can provide sources when asked, but not a good sign if a blog seems to only be taking information from non-credible sources and discourages questions.
