I Am New And Im Researching Otherkin For A Big Project :)
Hey Everyone, I Am Not Part Of Your Culture... If Thats How You Word It Lol, But Im Doing A Massive Project On The Fae... I Have Researched Into, Famous Fairies/Faeries And Evil Faries, Have Researched Into Fae In Plays And Literature (My Favourite Being Puck In A Midsummer Nights Dream, And Ariel In The Tempest) I Have Studied Cases Such As The Famous "Cottingley Faries Hoax" And Then I Came Across Something Perculiar, I Found A Picture Of A Seven Pointed Star Called The "Elven Star"... I Think That Is?... Well Anyway I Typed It In On Google And Many Links Came Up Like ... "Anthropomorphism", "Shapeshifting", "Therian", "Chimera" And Then I Found "Otherkin". Can Someone Help Me And Share Thier Thoughts And Beliefs Around This Culture?... I Would Love To Know More About Otherkin... From What I Know So Far I Am Summising That People Who Belive That They Are Otherkin Belive That They Are Non-human Animals Or creatures Traditionally Associated With Mythology Or Folklore, Some Belive To Be This In Thier Soul, Reincarnated Or Blessed Or Even Cursed This Way. (By The Way If I Am Wrong Please Do Not Take Any Offence, Im Just Simply Trying To Grasp What Otherkin As A Culture Is."

So Really, I Want To Know All About It, In Your Own Opinions, What Is Otherkin, What "Chalenging"?, What Is A "Skin Walker"?, What Is "Clinical Iycanthropy"?, I Know What Furry's Are And Do They Come Into This Topic? Does The Sexual Aspect Of Furries Come Into This? Is Otherkinism a Cult? What Religion are Otherkin And How Does Christianity Come Into It If It Can?, What Is Elven Princess Syndrome?, Are There Causes of Becoming Otherkin?, What’s A “True Form”?, What’s “Awakening”? What is UPG?, What are Phantom Limbs?, What is "The Veil"? What Are “Traumatic Memories”? And What Are "Otaku-Kin"?

As I Said Before, I Do Not Mean Any Offence If I Have Said Something In This Post That Might Cause Offence.

So Yeah, Please Help Me Haha, I Look Forward To Answers, Thanks To All <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->

Re: I Am New And Im Researching Otherkin For A Big Project :
First off, welcome <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile --> Second, sticky caps...so a no-go. Please capitalize your posts properly (meaning every single word should *not* have its first letter in caps). Third, poke around the forums, I'm sure most (if not all) of your questions have been answered at least in part. That all being said, if after reading around the forums a bit you still find yourself with questions, feel free to start a topic...and if a topic leaves you with questions, by all means reply to it. In terms of what makes someone otherkin, you'll find very few people who believe it to be a physical condition (afterall, DNA tests can easily confirm...read deny...that one) and some people, like myself, attribute it to psychological causes such as traumas or brain chemistry.

Re: I Am New And Im Researching Otherkin For A Big Project :
Welcome to OKP.

And as Sera already said, please be conscientious of your typing. Your 'intro' was very hard to read!

Glad you're interested in Otherkin, but again, most if not all of your questions are answered in various threads found here. Just poke around, they're easy to find. <!-- sWink --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- sWink -->

Also, you didn't tell us much about yourself. And since this is your intro, despite not identifying as Otherkin, why are you interested in us?

Getting a very fishy "sounds like the Discovery Channel/Animal Planet/whatever trying to screw with us again" vibe from that OP.

It seems there's been a few of these sort of things going around lately...
