Systemmate / Headmate / Insider

A systemmate, or headmate, is a person within a plural system.

Some systems prefer to use the term “alter” instead of headmate or systemmate for themselves. This may be due to identifying more with the medical model, while others may prefer to “take back the terms” and re-purpose them. This a personal preference, and it's considered polite to ask what someone else uses, or not use the term alter unless someone uses it for themselves.
