Is there no end to special snowflakes and cupcakes? This world is flooded with self-loathing weirdoes who want to be anything but themselves. The latest bats that have flown too close to the moon are calling themselves “otherkin.”
I first saw this on Chicks on the Right and thought it had to be a hoax. Apparently, it’s not. Here is an excerpt posted by Occidental Dissent describing this “phenomenon”:
“What does this mean? An otherkin is a being born into the wrong body. Not just with the wrong parts, but as the wrong species: people who identify as otherkin believe that they are a wolves, or elves, or really any kind of being, born into a human body. (Furries, who focus on anthropomorphic animals and are known for dressing up, aren’t the same thing as otherkin, many of whom don’t dress up or change their appearances at all.) A fictive is like an otherkin where the true, internal identity is a fictional character — deku scrubs are tiny creatures from The Legend of Zelda series of video games. Transethnicity is this same phenomenon applied to ethnicity
I don’t believe there are enough mental institutions in the world to house all these nutjobs.
