Sane otherkin support stamp by TheLeetCasualGamer Sane otherkin support stamp by TheLeetCasualGamer
Yes, I support otherkins as long as they are level headed enough.

For those who don't know what an otherkin is. They are people who believe they have a connection or affinity to a creature that has not lived on earth. They might believe they have a spirit of another creature that has not lived on earth. These creatures might include dragons, gryphons, angels, vampires, demons, etc.

Please note that this belief is not a religion. However, since they are both beliefs, I will be making the comparison. What I consider to be a sane otherkin is someone who doesn't go like "fauk u I'm a dragon!" or something like that. Somebody who doesn't flip out because somebody doesn't believe they are a dragon on the inside. Just somebody who takes the belief very casually and understands not to state it as a fact. Just like religion being an otherkin should not give you the right to be an asshole.

I'm also highly against otherkins who deny their own humanity. Saying humans are weak and evil and hating on their own race. I don't mind if you believe you are an "insert non-exsistant creature here" but don't go off and say that you are better then anyone else because of it. You are physically a human and you should be proud of it.

Now, before you say anything like otherkins are cooked up and crazy, dragons don't exists and such. Well, just like religion it is only a belief. I still find it kind of silly to believe that there is a higher power watching over us that we just made up (just how we made up our mythical creatures) but we still believe in it just how otherkins believe they have the soul/spirit of an otherworldly creature. I guess what I am saying there is that we shouldn't bash on any type of belief, but we shouldn't shove beliefs down another person's throat.

I for one do like sharing my beliefs as a wolf therian, but I don't deny that I am a human nor do I say anything to others who don't believe me.

I welcome the thoughts of a reasonable person like you. Faved and watching!

I'm a dragon otherkin. I've awakened recently after having had the symptoms for years. I AM human, so I have my own flaws and have to accept them. But by assuming my soul is a dragon's, I can explore my mind in a different way.

There should be more sane otherkins around the place for it's a personal belief like any other. Our society being as closed-minded as it is, I wouldn't even try to convince anyone to believe in otherkins, and even if I could, what would be the point of it? Make the sceptics hate otherkins even more? Force people to adopt a faith they don't believe in? Well no.

Finally, a level headed, not super biased view on otherkin.
Thank you for showing that there is still some sanity surrounding the subject ^.=.^

Non - biased views and thoughts are rare especially with this but sane thoughts still exists (I my self have related to a dragon for... wow, most of my life and as such have held the thought of there is a reason for this, or more specifically there is a time for everything) people who are sane about things like this tend to stay quiet

I have noticed the same, they keep to themselves a lot about it because of the nature of the subject and how the masses view it. It's interesting to try and find that reason behind it, it is a pretty ellusive thing most of the time. I think I have only really related to dragons for all of... only 3 - 4 years to be honest.

See I'll speak about it if I'm asked. And I only came to that conclusion due to all the crap that I've found out that I can actually DO.
But each person comes to that realization at different times, the easiest way I know how to explain this was something I've read: No one is sure when the dragon programing would kick in (if they have it) but theres usually a trigger that turns on that programming.

I agree 100% with that bit about the programming kicking in and it seems the triggers can be anything really. I've seen movies, stories, places, and even just daydreaming for ages as triggers for various people.

Agreed, although I have heard that HTTYD was a massive trigger for a lot of people (I think my trigger was dragonheart in '96) but that's just how this seems to work. But what was your Trigger if you don't mind me asking.
