Now allow me to play devil's advocate for a moment, there are people who probably say and believe that people who cosplay use it as a coping mechanism/are freaks/ need to get their heads sorted out. So what gives us the right as human beings to decide if what someone else believes is right or wrong? Has it ever occurred to you that there are people who do not have anyone they trust to talk to, so that is why the persona's are created?
No I understand all that, like I said before I GET WHERE THEY ARE COMING FROM HAVING BEEN THERE MYSELF.
The fact is that otherkin are allowing themselves to believe in something thats not real that put themselves in bad places emotionally/socially/etc. Yes its a coping mechanism, yes for some its all they have, but my point this whole time is that I want people who think like that to get BEYOND it and overcome it because in the end it doesnt help.
