Speciesism Between Kin
Are there species of kin that you find that you naturally dislike or have some form of unfair stereotype for? Do you have some form of justification for these feelings or they completely unbased?

My two main dishes on this are vampires and elves- no offense intended to either/both. With vamps, my major problem is that my energy state is delicate as it is. The one time I met a psychic vampire (unawakened), I disliked him on sight, because I felt I couldn't trust him. With awakened vampires, I think that my fears would be somewhat alleviated because they would have more control over their "feeding", but I still don't think that I would be completely at ease. For elves, I just don't like them all that much. Meeting them I'm fine with, but the idea just brings in feelings of resentment. However, there is nothing that I can do or say to explain it, and neither of my headmates will shine any light on the subject whatsoever.

Re: Speciesism Between Kin
I find I have issues with people, 'kin or not, on a case by case basis. There's no type of otherkin I hate on principle, but I often find I have issues with elves, as most elves just strike me as total LOTR wanna-be fluff. For some reason, I find chaotic 'kin and vampires (I guess I just can't get over the media stereotypes of the uber sexy vamp) to be pretty attractive.

Re: Speciesism Between Kin
Nope, don't dislike any kin on principle or otherwise. I have a firm disbelife in one type, but that's not the topic of this post, so I'll let that be.

I generally get along with everyone...although I do face sterotypes and negativity because of what I am.

Re: Speciesism Between Kin
I also dislike individuals, rather than species. Some species probably have a higher percentage of individuals I dislike than others, but that's it.

(I like movie vampires. If I ever meet an otherkin vampire who is tall, sexy, good looking, charismatic, rich, powerful, and looks 30-45 then I'll probably find him attractive too. Unfortunately, few otherkin vampires even tick one of those boxes <!-- sTongue --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" title="Razz" /><!-- sTongue --> )

Re: Speciesism Between Kin
there are some angels i don't get along with, which is usually caused by them not getting along with me simply because i am a demon. those are mostly uber-christians, telling me if i'm not on their side, i'm the enemy, i'd go to hell (been there, at least at one place you could call that) and whatnot.

otherwise, i don't think i dislike any kin type.

Re: Speciesism Between Kin
My only gripe is with vampires who drain others without asking first. But as my vamp friend says, there are jerks in every group. Maintaining a balance takes effort and I get grouchy when that balance is disturbed. In general I've got no problem with dark kin or light kin, or whatever. You just are whatever you are. I wasn't given a choice in what I turned out to be, and I suppose that others weren't either.

Re: Speciesism Between Kin
Mostly Fluffies I dislike most and copycats that suddenly discover "OOoooh, I am an angel (or chinese dragon), tooo! Just read your Website and .... (and so on ...)" - With some angels I have my problems that are too much self-centered and too pride of themselves and with other self-centered otherkins. So I have some issues with individuals but not really with a complete kintype.

With one exception: I do not consider multiples as a kind of otherkin, because they are too different from all the other otherkin-types around. Please understand that I do not elaborate anything on this, I respect them but do not interact often with them. Fact is, that I tend to keep a distance from them.

If some people really see angels where others see only empty space, let them paint the angels. (John Ruskin, 1819 - 1900, english critic and writer)

Well ... not all multiples are otherkin. Our system are all humans. But there are multiples who are otherkin (the different members of the system having their own 'kintypes) and multiples who have both human and otherkin members (our luffly mods House Hesson, for example).

So multiplicity itself? Not a type of otherkin (in my eyes, anyway). But is it possible for a multiple to be otherkin too? Yes.

Yep, even with walk-ins in particular - they don't have to be another species to qualify. Always baffled us a little why some 'kin fora have boards for all that, though we've come to appreciate it simultaneously because we generally have less explaining and mythbusting to do on those fora. ^^;

Nor are vampires necessarily Otherkin, although we generally feel it makes more sense to lump them in with Otherkin because they too are energetically different from a typical human, whereas multiples may just not be neurotypical (and thus more like synaesthetes and others who are psychologically odd but not necessarily disordered).

As far as species go, those of us who're awake often enough to have developed prejudices are leery of angels thanks to some of 'em acting a little too big for their britches. (Amusingly, our celestials are not as bad as some others on this count.)

Aspen and I tend to look down on any other race to some degree. I tend to assume they're weaker (and also that non-warriors of my race are weaker, meaning I'm thinking this about nearly everyone and it can be hard to shut off), be over-protective, and sometimes tease with scary things because it's funny to watch the meat jump. Aspen just doesn't like any other species, which makes it fun for her to be around sometimes...

Re: Speciesism Between Kin
I dislike the LOTR elves, and pretty much any elf in modern fantasy novels. Too much fluff, I gag. Oh, and fairies on the same account. I don't like the "pretty" ones <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->

But as far as "real" kintypes go, I don't know enough to develop a hate of any on principle. The only kind I could have some sort of hate or annoyance towards are other foxes, but that's usually since the only groups out there are the RP groups.
