Well, of course I don't think anyone should be shunned or told, "Gee whiz, sorry, you don't fit our criteria for Otherkin so could you please stop using that title." :)

I was more thinking of what a dictionary definition would be like if one existed or were ever created. If the community were pressed to define Otherkin, what would it say? What lines would we draw? Obviously there are lines or what's the point of calling ourselves Kin to begin with? You know?

Still, my own theory of what I am isn't set in stone. I don't expect others to have arrived at that point.

Thank you so much for writing this, Freetha.

I can relate to having known an individual who had many of the characteristics (and then some) that you described early on in your article. I met him my first year of college and for several months he worked at manipulating me in such a way. Thankfully I was steady enough in my otherkin identity by then that he didn’t warp my beliefs to what he wanted me to have faith in.

But I do worry about the people he continues to try and affect, as well as the others out there like him. So again, I fully appreciate you writing this and hope that young impressionable otherkin see something like this before they meet someone like him.

I post it both because I know someone who has fallen into this, someone who's lost years, and because I'm permanently rendered fed up with the manipulative jerks.

I've spoken to the manipulative type that doesn't realize he's being the manipulative type too. Those are the scariest ones. They cost themselves and others years and they don't even know they are doing it. I do not think we should let that sort of thing go along without challanging it at all because we'd be hurting ourselves, each other, and even those that are "at fault" by leaving the topic unbreached (especially for the sake of keeping the peace).

It was much better back in my day before every teenager and their dog had internet. It wasn't fashionable to have wings back then.

I was just by myself wandering in and out of denial for years. I wrote a few fictional stories, or planned them at least, without telling anyone where they came from or why. I hadn't met anyone who felt the same way I did, except now in hindsight, one of my friends when I was younger may have been a unicorn kin.
