I think I am some sort of Lovecraftian eldritch abomination who somehow got reincarnated or sealed inside a human body.

Update: OK GUYS SO APPARENTLY I WAS WRONG ABOUT WHAT OTHERKIN MEANS. TURNS OUT I STUMBLED ACROSS SOME SORT OF FETISHY THING THAT GAVE ME THE WRONG IDEA, HENCE THE KNEE JERK REACTION.

So, I'mma copy and paste what someone kindly explained:

"otherkin are people who believe that they were animals in their past lives. some believe that they were an “animal born in a humans” body, but as an otherkin, i don’t really believe that’s true. i have to respect people’s opinions, though, i realise.

we don’t really “identify” as an animal. we have ‘kintypes’, yes, but that’s just to tell people which animal we believed we were in our past lives. for example my kintype is thylacinekin, if that makes sense; i’m sorry if i don’t make any. "


So it's a reincarnation/spiritual thing, not some modernisticismful prgoressive movement.

Let your otherkin speak for you..
ACTUALLY THOGUH
I properly know what otherkin is now. Turns out I stumbled upon a, uhm, more progressive type of people that gave me the wrong impression o.O
But it's apparently a reincarnation thing.
THERE I STARTED A DISCUSSION YOUR TURN :3

I know what it means, but whenever I think about otherkins, I think about ugly people obsessed with some animal they say it's inside them. It's inevitable. :noes: I'm not one of them, by the way. :shifty:

Do you believe on that stuff?

Interesting but rather impractical (in today's society) idea.

since you want to identify as a cat... I feel the urge to ask... do you... lick yourself in the nether regions?

If people identify as animals we should be able to treat them as animals...
If you think you are a cat, I'm going to feed you cat food and put you outside at night and make you shit in a litter tray and remove all human luxuries, like technology and clothes etc from you. If you can cope with that then, sure, you're a 'cat'.
If not shut the fuck up and get over yourself, thinking you are another animals is not cool, it's bloody insane.

If I treat you are a cat and I treat you like a cat, where is the oppression, or should we treat cats as people? btw I know you aren't 'otherkin' just using you as an example if you were...

The thing is, I already treat my own cat like she's a person P:

But yea if a person wanted to be cat I'd treat them as cat and there begins the fetish side of it :s
And that's ok, I got that you were using me as an example ^_^

All of those are cool (:
Except that the contrast between koala and fox is kinda large? Considering koala's ten to fall asleep in their trees and fall out, and foxes live in dens and seem fairly active

:lol: The koala one is apparently because I'm so cuddly, and I really like to climb trees.

Otherwise, I'm pretty foxy... err, fox-like.

Strange idea, but theologically feasible. Mankind has been associating portions of their personality with animals for centuries. Stands to reason there would be some person who thought to himself "I do a lot of things like an animal would, perhaps I am an animal in human form".

I understand if it's a spiritual thing. But idk obviously I found the weird niche of otherkin because I genuinely thought that it was people taking trans* a little bit extremely D:

You can't be just any old animal, you have to be a dragon or a griffon or a hybrid platypus skunk, otherwise it's not serious.
