I'll add more as we post (you can make suggestions as well if you can't find what you're looking for).

It's helpful to try to be concise when tagging your entry; think of it like "so, what's my main point in here anyway?"; it's not because you briefly mention gender, spirituality or another topic that you have to use all the tags. Species are categorized as "feline, vulpine, ursine" and such so it's easier to browse for possibly similar experiences, contrary to over-specific species.

Moderators may edit an entry's tags if those are missing or innacurate.

Current tags (a non-exhaustive list) :

  • animal people - on animal people, eh

  • animality - our animal nature (intensity, changes, experiences that don't fall under "senses", etc)

  • avian - on bird experiences

  • arthropod - on insect, arachnid and crustacean experiences

  • body - body modification, body image

  • books - related to something you've read

  • brain - (atypical) neurobiology; synesthesia, dysphorias, etc
