Hi there, I'm Kaye.
I haven't really been on otherkin related forums in a very long time, (4, 5 years?) I've been wanting to join up again, if just to see what's going on with the community, (or subculture, or whatever you want to call it Tongue) but hopefully also to get involved. I've realized a lot of things about myself, and about otherkin since I first accidentally stumbled across the concept, and isn't that what the "awakening" is all about? Personal discovery?
That aside, let me introduce myself, and what better way to start than with how I relate to otherkin.
Currently, I consider myself a polymorph. This relation is, at primary, mental. I consider it primarily mental because while there are spiritual aspects to it, the mental reasons are ones I know are definitely real.
I am agnostic. There is no way to prove any form of spirituality, but there's no way to disprove a variety of beliefs. I do however, submit that atheism is likely correct, as Occam's razor is just good sense.
Because of this, it's sometimes very uncomfortable for me to explore and discuss the more spiritual sides of being 'kin. I've seen what it looks like when fantasy gets the better of someone, and I used to be quite fluffy myself, (ironically finding out about otherkin actually lead to me "de-fluffing.") It's not something I want to encourage with myself.
So now that we got the "deep" stuff out of the way... (improper ellipses usage lol )
I enjoy reading, video games, and hiking. I'm a major audiophile. I write, (I have a DA account :V ) I love to talk about government and economics, (although usually it makes me angry XD) I adore science, especially biology. I'm American, but I've lived in Italy for the past 5 years, (I'll be moving away in a couple of months though Cry )
And well... That's me.
