Having a Spirit Animal, does not really mean that a person is trying to either steal culture aspects from someone else, making fun of specific cultures OR just having one because "It'za cool-yo!". Most people I met and told me they had a "Spirit Animal", they had one mostly due to their respect towards that species OR the qualities they portrait.
Calling someone "Crazy", "insane", whatever because of this is ... just plain stupid.
You obviously missed the qualification that came with that assertion :roll:
If someone REALLY thinks they are a hyena-taur trapped in a hy00man's body, they are plenty fucked.
If it's a spiritual thing, for respect for the animal or whatever then yeah -- I can see that.
That's quite similar to how I feel, anyway.
