The otherhearted symbol proposed by tumblr-user aestherians

While often confused with otherkin, the otherkin and otherhearted communities developed separately, though it is of course possible to be both otherkin and otherhearted. Being otherhearted means that you have a strong fundamental connection with a species as opposed to as. It is often described as feeling as if they are your friends or family while not identifying either spiritually or psychologicially as being the species yourself.
