I think I may actually start a filters post of my own. I don't have a giant friendslist, but its steadily growing and my posts are getting more and more difficult to choose filters for. So. Here, have a filters list to choose from. There's probably more than I need, but.
To start off with, my journal's friends only, as most if not all of you already know. Its half because I jealously guard my privacy, and half because I have no idea what people do or don't want to read. So.
Sexuality/Relationships: Self explanatory. My sexuality and romantic-relationshipstuffs. The sexualitystuffs could be a bit blunt, fair warning. Its also likely that a lot of this will have a great deal of emotion with it, and possible irrationality. I'll warn you in each post if I detect it, but even so, you've been warned.
Theriantropy, Otherkin, Multiplicity: I am both otherkin and a therian. I am an elf, and I am horse and cat. If you wish for a psychological explanation, I identify very strongly with them. However, my personal belief is that soul/spirit-wise, I *am* them, an elf, cat, and horse in a human body. These'll be my ramblings and ponderings about my kin-ness and my animalselves, as I call them. The posts strictly about multiplicity will be labeled here too, though its woven in to all my posts. I have dealings with a few multiples, and I have a headmate myself named Shadow. And...anyone got a good definition for multiplicity so that I can explain it in a nutshell?
Past Lives and such: Self explanatory. The posts and ramblings about my past lives, which contain my ponderings and also memories. I'm somewhat protective of these, I don't share past life memories with those I'm not secure enough with and/or who were there.
Dreams, Religion, Paganystuffs: My dreams, dealings with Gods and Goddesses (in particular the Morrighan), and similar things. It can dabble mildly into weirdshit. If you're not openminded about religion, you might not like those particular posts.
Weirdshit: How in the hell do I define weirdshit...um. Well. My mystic/magick/metaphysic dealings, I suppose? Does anyone have a better definition? I'm not sure. I'd recommend you have an open mind if you ask for this, some of the stuff can at times be hard to swallow if you're not expecting it.
My insecurities and shadowwork and such will go under here, as will small bits of my training, I think. Unless you request that I have a filter of its own for that, if it makes you uncomfortable, Gaarik? I'm neutral with that, dun mind either way, and, well, you have a say. *edit* Cool, he's fine enough with those bits. No separate filter. ^^.
Trusted: The posts that are left to my most trusted people only, whom I know well enough and feel safe enough with to make myself thoroughly uncomfortable and vulnerable and potentially unsafe with. Its my tightest filter. And sometimes-though rarely, granted-the posts get changed to private. If you're not on it now I won't add you, but feel free to ask if you're newly friended anyway.
World/Life views: Mine can be a bit-and sometimes more than a bit-against the norm sometimes, but these'll be my opinions on life, and my world views, as the title says.
Emotion/Family: These'll be my little ranty posts. Depressed, pissed off, snarky, angsty, what have you. Wangst will probably filter under here too, though angst and wangst don't have a huge difference to me. These will likely be VERY emotion-filled and VERY irrational. Most of my family posts (except for the spasmodic my-family-isn't-all-shit ones) will end up here, because my home life is shit. And by vast probability, not exactly the funnest things to read. But hey, who knows. Some people might go nuts and want to.
Self-work: As I've started to go through and re-filter my posts...yeah, I think this one needs to be added, because there's a lot of writings I do analyzing myself, in non-weirdshit ways, and they don't quite fit in anywhere else. I end up discovering a lot about myself in these posts. My insecurities and shadow-work will be under here too, I think, instead of Weirdshit where it had been.
Anything else'll probably go under a general friends only post, as anything else I have to say about myself I a) don't think many people will have issues with hearing, and/or b) don't mind telling people about. Humor and Bipolar, for instance. Or it gets spread out amongst so many of my filters that there's just no point in making it its own. So. There, have a filter post. Its probably about time, with as much writing as I do.
Feel free to ask for whatever filters you want. I won't eat you for asking, even if I don't add you to all of them. And keep in mind, if you don't comment to this, you're getting added where I think you'll fit, and if you dun like what you read, well...its your own fault for not asking for specific filters. Heh.
