Aaaaaaand I am probably gonna delete this at some point but FUCK I need to just say this cause otherwise I will continue to smash my head against a wall every time the subject comes up on my dash.
Otherkin are crazy.
Flat out, there is something WRONG with them.
I am not saying this to be a douche nozzle, I am saying this because I know what its fucking like.
Basically, quick Rifa-history lesson, when I was a small child, about age 7, I had a friend that I played imaginary games with. We were both into video games and anime and shit so our games included such characters. EVENTUALLY, we came to a decision that we /were/ these characters.
This went on for a long time. An uncomfortably long time. It took years to unravel myself out of the crazy fucking delusions we made. So, basically, I KNOW EXACTLY WHAT THESE PEOPLE ARE DOING AND FEELING. Seeing anything any otherkin-type person says TERRIFIES ME because I have never seen anyone else act or feel like that, even down to the fact the bat-shit insane systems and words and explainations match what me and my friend made up.
Its super fucking scary.
And basically all I have to say is that there is something WRONG with these people and I wish they would cut it the fuck out. Nothing good comes out of feelings like that, and they are totally coping mechanisims for people who cannot deal with the real world. Case in point, me and my friend who did shit like that? We both had extremely shitty home lives we couldn’t cope with. We had no control over our shitty screwed up lives we were too young to understand. We escaped with somethign we felt gave us power, we used it as a way to filter feelings we couldn’t process in our normal lives.
I feel terrible for otherkin. Terrrribbblleee. And honestly I hate that they are putting themsleves out there as they are, opening themselves to constant ridicule and shit. I know what it feels like to have feelings like that and it SUCKS. IT SUCKS SO BAD I COULD SIT HERE AND CRY ABOUT IT. I want them to all log the fuck off, keep this shit to themsleves, and get to a fucking counsellor. These people need to sort their shit so they can feel fufilled and comfortable as themsleves.
Fucking otherkin need to knock it the fuck off. I dont even care if that offends anyone. What they are doing is unhealthy, doing it on public forums is causing more diress to themsleves, and trying to drag other people into it is just as damanging.
I don’t want to talk about my childhood fuckery that, while it ended up as a crutch getting me through years of abuse, was unhealthy and I had to force myself to out grow.
I just wanted to say I understand this. And its not healthy. Its not good. Its not something that is oppressed or anything. Its a problem in your head, its a coping mechanism. Fuck. Get help otherkin please fucking god you will feel so much better after you do.
