  1. Thoughts on Coyote

    I was reluctant to identify as a coyote-like creature for a very long time. Coyotes, after all, are scrawny, a poor imitation of wolves, yipping instead of haunting howling, bone in place of muscle, a habit of attacking livestock, and the weight of thousands of years of oral stories placing them as the ambiguous trickster at best, and an evil coward at worst. Not an animal that many people would be proud to identify with.

    But it's not really like that for me. For one, I choose to disregard ...

  2. Select quotes from Heartless Bitches International

    "If I ever get around to boyfriend number two, he better have a busy life full of his own hobbies and goals, because I will not be someone's reason to exhale. I have better things to do then entertain a full grown man when I'm not getting paid for it. "

    The following is part of my introductory post from another therian hangout. It's very brief, but I thought I'd share anyhow. What makes me think I'm a coywolf and not a coyote or a wolf?

    My story is long, very long, life-long. It tends to get detailed and poetic. I'll try to summarize here, as difficult as it is to summarize an identity. ("Why do you feel male?" to an FTM trans person, for example. Long story!)

  5. Rant: On Wolfaboos and Wildlife "Advocates"

    Fifty Facebook groups later, you'd think a decent number of people would have donated to the $1500 Coywolf Association goal, but no. Not a penny.

    And the pitches are worded right. Silver-tongued and tailored to each individual group's aim. I could post the variants of the pitch here, on my blog. Every post is approved by the administrators.

    My frenemy Ty is a coyote whether he knows it or not. He just is. In his words, "Facebook is where you get fifty likes on ...
