RE: Use of the Term "Vampire"
Yeah, I've experienced frustration before regarding the use of vampire by psi/sangs and how that makes it so much more difficult to find other vampirekin, more particularly annoying when psi/sang vampyrism is treated like it, itself, falls under otherkin (rather than, for example, alterhumanity in general) and actual vampirekin get basically erased. I've come to accept that they are the much more numerous users of the term vampire compared to vampirekin and they have their own reasons for using that terminology, so it's really the erasure or denial of vampirekin that gets on my nerves.
You'd think it would be a more common 'kintype than the seemingly few it appears to be, but maybe a lot of vampirekin don't realize they are such, possibly also being psi/sang or thinking they might be so they go to that community instead, and/or they are basically erased or lost among the mass amount of vampire (in any sense) related stuff. It's really unfortunate. However, I've made it a point to make my vampirekin experiences and writings on such more accessible for those who do happen to have a vampirekin identity; it's the best thing I can do to help out other vampirekin so hopefully they won't feel so alone.
My therianthropy and spiritual writings:
Poly'kin of: mongoose, domestic cat, domestic horse, winged theropod (erdenvogel), and vampire'kin (blutpir) [not a pranic nor sang kind of vampire]
