purple represents alterhumanity. i chose a bright pale shade to reference ultraviolet - a color beyond human perception. this is supposed to represent the unseen nature of alterhumanity, an identity beyond normal human boundaries!
green represents nonhuman creatures. from dragons to zombies to little green men, lots of nonhumans are green! specially, this also references the snakes in medusa’s hair.
salmon represents love. but being an off-color from both pink and red, traditional love colors, it represents the uniqueness of medusan attraction and how it differs from human attraction to monsters etc
the triskelion is a symbol that has been used lots in heraldry as a symbol for medusa.

Medusan is a Fictisexuality defined as "referring to alterhuman/nonhuman people who are sexually and/or romantically attracted to other alterhuman people and/or nonhumans. this can mean monsters, aliens, or mythical creatures - any intelligent nonhuman creature. this term is for alterhumans only!"1

History of the term

Medusan was coined on December 27, 20172 by tumblr user queer-buccaneers.3

From the coiner:

i made this term bc i literally only experience attraction to monsters but talking to ppl from terato tumblr makes me as an alterhuman feel.. fetishized kinda? clearly i am experiencing a different feeling of attraction to monsters than human people are, and i think a lot of other alterhumans might feel like that too!
this is why i chose medusa to name the term after. regular humans who look upon her face turn to stone, but we’re not regular humans! we are perceiving a feeling of attraction that they simply can’t.
i hope other alterhumans find this as useful as i do ^^4

I’m only into fellow otherkin,
it’s just my sexuality;
don’t approach me if you’re human,
you’re fetishizing me.
