RENAMED: Otherkin and Sexuality
Hi. I've been interested to find out that a lot of otherkin are bi or gay and i dont know why.
However i'd like for you all to take a poll to determine how many are actually straight and how many are of other sexuality.

Re: Sexuality
lol, Elvanos.
I put down straight, as that's what I go by, but to explain it further, I'm not really opposed to either way of doing things, but in practice, I've met women who I want to have sex with, especially my wife, but I've never actually met a guy I'd want to have sex with. In a purely theoretical level, I'm bi, but in practice, I'm straight.

Re: Sexuality
Straight also. But i have talked to an interesting amount of bi and gay otherkin and i wonder why there is such a large number and whether there is a large number on the forum. Hmm. Maybe i'm just getting at nothing but there might be a reason for it.

Re: Sexuality
Isn't this a topic that's sort of teetering along the pg-13 R line? I mean I doubt a 13 year old who's curious about otherkin will know their sexual orientation as a normal human let alone otherkin...is there even a correlation?

Possibly. I'd say as long as no one goes to far to the end of raunchy I'd think it acceptable.
Most 13-y/os are going to understand the concept of bi/gay/straight. If not they're horribly sheltered and probably wouldn't be on this forum, anyway.

Re: Sexuality
Bisexual. I've had boyfriends and girlfriends, and all the fun stuff that goes along with that, if you get what I'm saying.

I'm attracted to people, however, not gender. I have a friend who is transgendered, and there is an attraction there for me -- but it wouldn't matter, really, what gender he identified as. (Biologically female, in case you were wondering.) I am attracted to whomever I'm attracted to, and to try to put limits on that based on gender or identification or whatever would be futile, at least for me. I do know that there are straight people who simply cannot be attracted to their own gender, and that there are gays and lesbians who cannot be attracted to the opposite gender. But for me, it's the person that matters the most.

Hence, the reason why I get bothered by the stance that bisexuality or homosexuality or whatever is a choice. To me, that's like saying that skin color is a choice -- especially because more and more studies are finding biological causes for sexual orientation. In fact, I take personal offense to that stance, as I had no control over my bisexuality. I was raised Baptist, where anything other than "straight" was an "abomination" -- and it didn't help that I was going to a school in the same vein -- so when I finally realized I was something other than the "norm" I was raised with, I cried and begged God to change me. Finally I accepted it, but it was very hard; so I've also discovered that I simply cannot be very good friends with someone who holds the stance that it's a "choice", as that stance very deeply offends me.

Anyway, off my soapbox now.

Meh call it my protectiveness flaring up, but kids need to learn about this sorts thing in the "normal" context first, preferably from their parents...then again we all know how that usually ends up. Mummy and daddy let the TV/porn handle it and we get some screwed up kids. I'm not saying otherkin sexuality is the same as porn but it can serve to confuse a child who doesn't know two bones about sex...I guess I was sheltered at 13...I didn't know anything x_x.
