comics about otherkin
Is that a troll comic?
>>109931390I want to kill the ""person"" who drew this with my edge Holy shit
Back when tons of people depended on animals for their livelihoods, being unusually interested in and understanding of them would be very beneficial. But now, it leads to furries and whatever the fuck this is.
>>109931390>we are all Green LanternsNice
So between the two he changed his name from Orion Scribner to "Orion Sandstorm"?I think that pretty well shows how full of bullshit these people are. They want you to take this nonsense seriously, then make random changes to the premise as they want.
>>109931633>fairyWat? Wait a minute those fuckers believe that your "true form" can be literally anything? Even the fucking Attack Helicopter?
>>109931958otherkin can be anythingsky's the limit
Normies just don't understand.
The person who wrote this couldn't have unwaveringly believed in this. I know their heart was filled with doubt. No one could be this deluded.
I thought otherkin were proved as conservative trolls back in 2015
>>109932951I work in IT. I'm saving and then editing this to reflect how people shouldn't treat computers.
>>109932843>Can draw decently>Is mentally ill and believes to be an otherkin. Why do the good to decent artists always have issues? >Sinfest is an insane fool
>>109934647dont you remember teen wolf?these kind of weirdos are real they're just completely insignificant in number and everyone realizes they're loony.
>>109931390In every way but the physical I am a Sephiroth
>>109931390What if my invisible bits are some anthropod monster? What if my spiritual nature is to live in holes or caves and survive by eviscerating things that pass by?
>>109931633>Wolves: we aren't the stereotype>Dragons: We aren't simple polarized characterizations>Unicorns:We are not just friendly. We will kill a bitch!>Faries: We are all class A assholes.I actually liked this one but I think the fairy panel should have been last.
>>109931830Also at those times even the dumbest slowest animal could well exceed human ability in one area or another. Animals were both prey and rivals.
>>109934273>Panel 12>Ah shit its those fairy-kin weirdos. You know they just hit the dollar store for the outfits so they can get in on the drug party. You just know!
>>109934754Teenwolf was a prophetic message about Transformers in sports teams.
>>109934273>Make a book on this bullshit:>Makes people come forwsrd and be approved>Writer sucks at writing and the book does not come out or the book is not worth making>The book sucks and is disapproved by the furry/othekins>The book makes itherkins mashed up with other sub cults>the furries like it.>The book doesn't sell>The book draws negative attention and the griffon people try to disown it>The book becomes popular and is buried in books following the trend.>The book brings world piece>The book confuses the dog people.>A weird actual cult joins the sub cult.>It gets media attention and reactions vary greatly.>The subcult is polarized on if the book is good or bad.
>>109935972Follow your instinct anon.
>>109931390Im pretty sure people walk around you to avoid ypu
Other kin would be animal shaman priests thousands of years ago
What I like about this panel is the idea that if otherkin were to become popular in the mainstream, there would be a bunch of "fake" otherkin invading the author's circle of speshul make-believe animal friends.
>>109937508I suppose your otherkin persona could have been a machine/toaster
>>109937390Honest to god that is a rational concern. Hell, we piss and moan that happened to 4chan. Every board complains about that happening to their interest.
>>109937619Or he is a machine with a human soul? Wait, that actually is ars mechanis.
>>109937669>Are you fucking nuts? Try doing something worthwhile outside! Something enriching or making the world better!Nice try, this guy is clearly a gobernment plant. 'They' want you to do things that draw social stimulus and induce healthy brain chemistry through esteem building social activities and experiences!
>>109935972>What if my invisible bits are some anthropod monster?No no no! Yes your true form COULD be a disgusting insectoid monstrosity. It would be insane to think that everyone will be something awesome like a wolf, lion, dragon, angel, or such. But most likely it will be.it will always be
>>109937669>the body you had in another lifeWait. Do they think gryphons and dragons were real?
>>109931390>A "Phantom Limb" is the sensation that a limb is physically present when its not.Uh huh...>Phantom Limbs are also experienced by therianthropes & otherk
is this crazy shit or just sad?
>>109932843>ITS CAUSE MY WINGS THATS WHY IM BAD AT DIRECTIONSPretty sure it's because you just don't know how to communicate to people. People avoid you for a good reason, it's probably because they see you and they don't wanna bump in to you. It's simple situational awareness.
>>109934273>otherkin hates it when you are posing as cats Oh god please kill yourself.
>>109935972Then you have graduated from internet troll to actual troll, now go anon, go and find your swamp
>>109931390The otherkin are so degenerate that even filthy furry cosplayers shame them.
>>109931633imagine being personally offended by a biblical description of a mythological creature from 2000 years ago
>>109932023If the wings don't have weight why does he fall in that direction and not the box?
>>109932023>xe instinctively counterbalances the burden by unfurling xir wings behind xir.
how otherkin are born
This is just sad and embarrassing
>>109942069I do wonder if there is a few who have a moment of clarity and realize, maybe we just have something wrong with our brains
How is it otherkin always seem to identify as the same handfulls of animals and mythical creatures but rarely ever anything else? You never hear someone identify as an orangutan, blue whale, sea snail, ostrich or trout, it's always something with vaguely human anatomy with a bunch of shit added to it like wings or tails. If they had any critical thinking faculties at all, they'd be wondering why they always see themselves as really being something cuter or cooler-looking than they really are."No, my body isn't a fucking mess because of genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors, my soul is simply in the wrong body. That's why I have body image issues."
>>109942420More like insane and stupid but ok
I identify as an attack helicopter.
Does the otherkin movement still exist? They used to be a thing back when sites like Livejournal and Fandom_wank were relevant, but I haven't heard much about them in about a decade or so. I assumed it was just a weird phase that some teenagers went through at the time, and that it got replaced by other subcultures.I kinda wish I could meet an otherkin some day so I'd have a chance to see how far exactly they're willing to take their dumb little act, and how they'd respond if they were actually treated as if they were an animal, like in pic related.
>>109942769It's a fad that passed. Let's hope the same happens to made up genders.
honestly i miss weird shit like otherkin, back before everyone overdosed on irony.nowadays people still do it, but they make it boring by being self aware about it being weird, giving a winking nod, hinting they don't really believe what they're saying at all times, shitposting in the grey blur of twitter-discord culture that has overtaken the internet as a whole.it's so tiring.
>>109932023So you're saying I can't be the sky? Bigot.
>>109931390Th-they totally walked around me because they f-feel my wings, it has nothing to do with the smell, yeah
> 1st panelI CAME TO BRING THE PAIN HARDCORE TO THE BRAIN, LET'S GO INSIDE MY ASTRAL PLANE
>>109931390>opening your wing unnecessarily forcing other passersbys to dodge you on the streetAre othrrkin assholes?
>>109937390But that is actually something that tends to happen to niche groups.
>>109934273I really don't know how to read this
>>109931390I don't get why /co/ has to react to this with such animosity instead of treating it as some fantasy.>Oh my god you don't understand, they actually believe in it!So fucking what, lots of people believe in worse delusions and even make temples out of it, no one bats an eye at that. No, I'm not trying to be an edgy atheist or something, it's more like of all the things to be mad about, you choose a bunch of people who think they're dragons or whatever. I can assure you in a couple of decades, when augmented reality becomes more of a thing, that this shit right here will be more popular and taken the same way as every other innovation in the latest years. Big fucking whoop.Oh and miss me with the slippery slope bullshit, I don't advocate for pedophilia, I'm just saying, this shit right here is so harmless and silly to be mad about. I just read it as some fantasy book and that's how it likely began.
>>109944445And you, the enlightened individual, chooses to be mad about people on an internet message board that he perceives to be mad.Meanwhile, most of this thread is just laughing at them.
>>109944445I wouldn't say this makes me mad, but it does fill me with curiosity and makes me want to know more about these people. Diving deep in these insanity cases can be fun on itself, it doesn't mean I think it should stop or it's a menace to society.
>>109944445Buttmad Otherkin detected
When did we start celebrating the sick and the mediocre instead of treating them properly?
>>109944485I'm not mad at all, I just think there's a big difference between regular mockery and "I want to douse them in gasoline and watch the world burn."I get the feeling a lot of them are extremely normies so they perceive any deviation from said norm as an abomination (hence why all the anti-tranny shit ramped up in the latest years instead of ages ago), so instead of just ignoring or mocking then moving on it's this visceral reaction like it's threatening their whole livelihood. It's silly as hell to me. >>109944494>it doesn't mean I think it should stop or it's a menace to society.That's my point, none of this is real and deep down I'm sure they know it too. It's batshit crazy? Sure, but it's not the downfall of Western civilization like some here pretend (exhibit a: the post right above mine)
No one can give me a singe reason why Furries should not be gassed
>>109937669>cave exploringwell furries at least have that one nailed
>>109944445>I don't get why /co/ has to react to this with such animosity instead of treating it as some fantasy.thats because you are new and you dont know we used to do this all the time
>>109944528if you want a hughbox fuck off to any of the other sites you can whine and get people banned in
>>109944636>>109944658LMAO I've been here for many years, it's so fucking funny how you're clinging so hard to your bullshit. Look at this guy, thinking I want to "downvote" and ban his sperging when I'm simply saying you look like an overreacting retard (with more tact, of course). No man, by all means go ahead and pretend this is bigger than it is, don't let me stop you!
>>109944692yiff in hell furfag
>>109931390>otherkinThat's not a thing I've heard in years
>>109944698So what do I respond to this? I'm sorry I'm used to getting called a tranny, and they have its own set of counter-responses (cope, seethe, dilate, etc). What do I do if I get called an old-timey yet evergreen insult like "furfag"? Please advise!!!
Someone post that human trans dragon comic
>>109944722You call them a faggot, faggot
I wonder how high suicide rate is among otherkins
>>109944445Because Otherkin is just the beginnings of schizophrenia.
>>109944841100%, that's why you don't see them around anymore.
>>109944746Why would you even perform this surgery on a person when the outcome after the anesthesia wears off is so obvious?
>>109944879Do you often over-analyse jokes?
>>109944901Do you not?
God i want to be a dragon. That would be cool as fuck.
>>109934679post the edit
>>109944692>LMAO I've been here for many years2 isnt many
>>109944945Unlike you I'm not an election refugee.
>>109944485The thing is, the approach to mockery that people take in an attempt to be funny is now old-hat. Crazy people are used to people on imageboards saying nasty things and now ironically pre-empt them by saying similar things themselves. Now neither is that amusing. One is old-hat and the other is everywhere.
>>109945007you probably learned about 4 chan from a pewdipie video
>>109945274>taking me for a YouTuberAbsolutely disgusting, of all the ways you could've insulted me.
>>109931390>this comicThe reason phantom pain is a thing is because you were previously able to move your arm and feel with it. It doesn't apply to wings or a tail or something like that because you've never experienced it before. These people are talking out their ass.
>>109934273I wonder if this "book" exists in some form.
>>109937669>Having a "spirit animal" to motivate you to do good thingsok>>>109938513>I AM ACTUALLY A DRAGONbruhIs this just furry cringe scientology
>>109945316It has to do chakras and the astral plane.
>>109945316>The reason phantom pain is a thing is because you were previously able to move your arm and feel with itBecause the sensory-motor map that represents the limb is still there in the brain but not getting any new input from the severed nerves. Slowly, over time, the areas of the map corresponding to the missing body part get co-opted by areas nearby on the map. As those areas get activated, the feelings of the missing limb are as well, to a varying degree. It's the exact same thing as remembering a taste or smell, but we don't psychologically perceive it that way.
>>109931390People get pretty mad at these dweebs, yet I've seen people on /co/ talk unironically about tulpas and get away with it.
>>109945428/x/ is leaking probably
>>109945428tulpas are self-induced mental illness, which makes them inherently more fascinating.
>>109945428>got lost once>struggled to find my way back for hours>eventually give up because i'm in the middle of fucking nowhere>I see a fucking fictional character tell me not to give up>I make it backam I losing my fucking mind?
>>109931633There was a second page for this>Sure I unironically think I'm a creature that kills innocent people and drinks their blood but it doesn't mean that I'm *evil*
>>109945459Otherkin aren't too unhealthy, I think. They have their little niche community of fellow dragonwolfgriffons, which is probably the main draw. They're not in danger of disappearing down the rabbit hole with their imaginary fucking friend.
>>109945496MaybeIf it happens repeatedly, or you try to stop it but it happens anyway, then yes, see a doctor.
>>109938390They think they were reversw isekai'd
>>109932023feels like description of superpowers in old capeshit
>>109945640It only happened the one time I was lost, I still fondly remember it.I think it was my autistic mind trying to save me.
>>109944879that comic is too realistic to feel realistic I guess.
>>109938390Are real anonAre real
>>109945498Wolfboy is cute
>>109931390>knows he has wings.>doesnt bring them in to let others pass.So he's crazy AND an asshole.
>>109931390I thought otherkin waw just fancier word for fursona?
When you are so scared of death you convince yourself reincarnation is real and that you'll be reincarnated as naruto in your next life
>>109938088>>109944335But what's the difference between a 'fake' and a 'real' otherkin?
>>109931390>>109932843>>109932951So if I identify as a snake, does that mean my limbs go numb?
>>109937390oh hey, it's the non-binaries through the eyes of the trans community
>>109942550This is what happens if you buy into souls and other non-secular things.
>>109931633>>109936113It has to work within the context of people who want to say they're dragons and fae creatures.>You may think dragons are powerful but actually I'm non-confrontational and passive aggressive so don't expect me to rise to anything.>Yeah, wolves eat to live, so in my case I eat my bologna sandwich with a sense of nobility instead of the humdrum reality. Never mind how much joy a dog takes from the sound of a baby animal's screams. The fact your dog will murder a whole rabbit burrow for fun is beside the point.>I may be a unicorn, but I'm also a colossal mega bitch and have terrible mood swings due to some sort of hormone imbalance.>I'm a fae I don't know why you expected I WOULDN'T have syphilis.
>>109931390I had an idea of setting called "reverse-otherkin" which I used it as a humorous way to explain settings in shows like Arthur.
I guess the comic author also thinks physically shapeshifting is also possible?>"Note: P-shifting is short for “physical shapeshifting" in the therianthrope community. They argue and speculate about it so much that they need an abbreviation!"
it gets worse when you find out people believe the same shit but with fictional characters
>>109944879For science. And I'm sure they made them sign a contract not to burn down the hospital after the surgery. Dragons are bound by contracts.
>>109932023> by unfurling xir wings behind xir>xir
>>109945498>>109946000Same shit but with real dead peopleAnd some otherkin think its disrespectful to be abraham lincolnkin and free the niggotherkin from slaverkin
>>109945974Maybe there's a whole "World of Darkness" thing going on and we've accidentally been given a glimpse beyond the masquarade.
>>109945498If you can't discuss a certain aspect of a subculture because it automatically blows up, that proves that there is something fundamentally wrong with said subculture. The answer is not to simply avoid the topic, it is to either reform the subculture or talk about the problem so extensively that a solution is found.
>>109931390>>109938513so these people just never grew up out of pretending to be animals in the playground as kids is what i'm getting at
>>109946134I say we go with it and start hunting them with silver shavings in shotgun shellsIt's like if you rape a witch while reading the bible she cant do magic anymore
Would you turn into a wolf so you don't have to pay taxes, /co/?
>>109946174I'd turn into a wolf to piss on small children in california
>>109946174Yes every month I would turn into a wolf and not pay taxes.I can't imagine this furry logic resulting in any problems whatsoever.
>>109946217I think it's implying you would turn into a wolf indefinitely
>>109946140Maybe it is because everything is shit, I sympathize with wanting to pretend to be not myself. Maybe I'm a corpsekin because I feel dead inside.
>>109945811>When you are so scared of death you convince yourself reincarnation is real and that you'll be reincarnated as naruto in your next lifeI don't think that it is fear of death. It is more like fear of life. Besides, the Japanese already believe in reincarnation.
>>109945498What was he drinking?
>>109946373He just said coffee.
I know an otherkin that seriously thinks they're a gem from steven universe.
>>109946423Oh really? What is their "gem"? A kidney stone?
>>109946444They claim to be a lapis
>>109946356I'm being an armchair psychologist but the author here seems to fear death more than the usual https://therithere.dreamwidth.org/13469.html
>>109946487Have you made the painfully obvious point that they don't have a gem on their back?also >claiming to be worst girl
>>109946487Are they somebody you know irl? Or are they some twitter that's ~kin~ uwu
>>109931830I've heard a theory that a lot of kids use this furry and otherkin shit because they're gay or trannies and don't feel normal so they channel that dysphoria into latching onto anthro shit.
>>109946174Most people file a 1040-EZ and then get a refund. But personally I considered selling my car when I realized I had to get it inspected and registered in the state I moved to. I didn't because selling my car is also a ton of work and paper, but goddamn do I hate bouncing between government buildings collecting forms and documents. You practically have to take a day off work, just because the offices aren't open on the weekends or evenings - though if they were open on weekends they'd be so swamped you'd never get in.
>>109946515yes I have mentioned that. I've also mentioned their lack of flight ability (they have somehow convinced themselves they can control water).
>>109946639Are they a fully formed adult?
>>109944722Yiff me, daddy.
>>109946494I thought that you were taking a jab at those escapist cartoons that Japanese make to not kill themselves (isekais). Honestly, when I think hard about it, doesn't the idea of an otherkins contradict the idea of reincarnation? Then I remember that there are some people that think that being born the wrong gender was a punishment. Still how can a soul have species?
>>109946653I guess 18 is an adult.
>>109934607Self-delusion is powerful. Ask anyone who escaped cults.
>>109946598In mental illness there's actually a long and unfortunate history of people with problems being vulnerable to suggestion. People with mood disorders and anxiety will accept spiritual explanations for their problems. People with mental disorders like autism are even worse, because they're functional but may not do as well with evaluating emotions and their relative states.Dissociative Identity Disorder, for example, was barely even a recorded thing until they started making movies about it, after which it exploded for a few years. You saw a lot of people saying they had alternate personalities, using it as an excuse to misbehave, usually. Especially in mental wards, where a doctor would tell their patient they had it, and then the patient would accept that and start acting out the symptoms.It's a pretty real possibility this is why we've seen an explosion of the transgender stuff this generation. Because while people actually are sometimes born with physically ambiguous gender and it could be presumed to occur mentally too, it was extraordinarily rare before Twitter got a hold of it. That's also why the official term is "gender dysphoria", and not "transgender", because until the political movement I don't know if transitioning was legitimately considered a treatment. More like it was a rare problem psychiatrists never had tools to solve or properly evaluate.
>>109934607There are people who unironically believe in hypercrisis because a drug-altered Irishman said so.
>>109934273This is literally insanity.
>>109946672It seems like a lot of these folks start off by having dreams / visions of a "past life" and start believing it's real.
>>109946673They sound like they might need some help. Or they probably have a bunch of folks online supporting / enabling them.I wonder if they think they're gems too
When are we going to see blogs or comics telling people with schizophrenia they are brave for wanting to remove their teeth so the government cant spy on them and that there is nothing wrong with thinking that the voices are normal and healthy.
>>109946859oh don't even bring up the "fusion"
>>109946746Even as a lefty faggot I just don't know how you look at a person like Cosmo and go "yeah the problem is dysphoria" before immedietly recognizing a laundry list of other mental issues.Like maybe there's a reason that so many people who lock themselves away in a room playing the same bing-bing yahoo game for 15 years are all trannies. I'm trying to be as progressive as I can with all this but it seems like gender reassignment is being used as a cure all for lonely internet dorks.
Where are the more mundane animal otherkin? It's always wolves, dragons or some other special kind of creature.
>>109946859Or I guess people emotionally relate way too much to what they're watching / reading
>>109946945You see this with furries all the time. Everyone is a neon green sparkle wolf and nobody is a dung beetle or capybara.
>>109946967Are there any furries who think they are insects?
>>109931390Furries be crazy. There are still crazier people, like fictionkin, who claim to believe they were a certain fictional character character in a past life or some shit.
>>109934273>FUKKIN NORMIES GET OUT REEEEEEEEEEEE
>>109944875They are still around. I know some.
>>109946073Right? It should be>xir wings behind xim
>>109946967It's kind of understandable for furries since their shit is more based on what they want to fuck, not what they truly believe they are.
>>109947039Tell me a story
>>109946999There are definitely bugfuckers so I can only assume
>>109946893Maybe just maybe the right Is right when it comes to personal freedom but not controlling others. Like why we cant own slaves anymore Damm Republicans T. Family owned slaves
also guys that lapis lazuli kin tried to "fuse" with someone and got arrested
When it stops being a cool, but irrational belief (a lot of primitive cultures see themselves as children of their totem animal) and becomes colossal faggotry?What`s the difference between otherkin and furry with a fursona?
>>109947147I wonder if I could convince him that astral projection would make him lose his wolf form.
>>109947175furries aren't deluded enough to think a fursona is real
>>109947175Surgery or drugs seem q good line to call crazy right Like if i took horse hormones and altered my dick to be horse like. Actually a lot of guys would probably bite at that. Fuck I convinced myself what kind of monster footlong frankendicks can we make when we start with real dicks. Anyway the point is trannys are crazy but they have a right to go be crazy and kill themselves. It's like if emos were demanding rights.
>>109931633>fairiesthe flying onaholes?
>>109947175It doesn't really seem like there's actually a real way to define otherkin, everything's made up and the points don't matter
>>109947092One of my crazy Texan furry friends is dead solid convinced he is a dragon. Does Astral projection, communes with gods, the whole nine yards. He's also dying of early onset Parkinson's so I can't really tell him how crazy he is, but it's pretty crazy.
>>109946134One day i had a fascinating conversation in a bar with a guy i saw in that bar a couple of times.I was drunk, so i did not remember everything. It was about phychical constructs and persons, who had them naturally, allowing them to sort of bend reality. It was probably a big pile of LARPing bullshit, but i still feel like a normie who got a taste of WOD.
>>109946259Maybe you are just a faggot
>>109947403Has he always believed he was a dragon? Curious how long you've known this dude.
I forgot about otherkin that think they are a past relative
>>109945848you mean rising aspirants embarrassing the cult of castration
>>109946174This comic is fucking great
>>109944722>What do I do if I get called an old-timey yet evergreen insult like "furfag"?>LMAO I've been here for many years
>>109947867what are your demands
>>109948142Sarcasm is hard.
I'm out of comics to post
>>109946893You know how mtf trannies outnumber ftm by a very large amount? And how a lot of these trannies don't want to be actual women, but underage animu girls? They're projecting and obsessing over an escapist fantasy. They don't actually ~feel~ like women, it's what they think women are/get to have that they're attracted to. There's a reason why they have an almost a fifty percent suicide rate.
>>109947635Yes, for the twenty years I've known him anyway. He will recite stories of how he astrally projected talked to various gods. I've met people who pleneoth equally crazy fixations, like a couple of Wiccan. The guy I'm talking about is still functional, unless a few other crazy furs I know.
>>109942769Reminds me of that one furry who got fired on the first day of her new job for growling at customers.
>>109942769>shit that never happened
>>109932023I thought Xir was just a myth.
>>109946893I think the issue is that there's a well-meaning scramble to have a solution, and the media doesn't grasp the problem well enough to parse the details.Because right now, the current decision seems to be to encourage surgery and hormone therapy while simultaneously abolishing gender dysphoria as a recognized mental illness, which are full contradictory goals. You can't advocate treatment and say there's no disease, and within actual psychiatric circles it's two separate schools of thought. The third school, of thought, which believes gender dysphoria is not well enough understood to make diagnosis OR treatment has been generally derided because it's the most do-nothing perspective.But then I think it's important to remember they used to treat schizophrenia with lobotomies due to lack of other consensus, so there's historical precedent for do-nothing being genuinely the better option.
>>109945707The level of gayness in this response is just right and makes me feel warm inside.
>>109948654Is there a country that has a good record of how they treated the mentally ill? From what I know of recent Western civilization it has been met with things like lobotomies, electroshock therapy, and eugenics.
>>109948867Wow. His body is a temple.
>>109946292Ins't cougar also older women that only fuck really young men?
Mod autosaged this, because he's an otherkin.
>>109948925I mean, there are a lot of countries where the record is all over the place? In the United States, there used to be comprehensive programs for treating mental illness that at least didn't harm the sufferers, but current doctrine is to use the prison system as a catch-all for the mentally ill, drug addicts, the homeless, and of course criminals.
>>109942769I think it's largely been replaced by gender stuff. But I think this kind of thing is interesting to read about since it's the Don Quixote effect.
>>109931390>the limbs clip through shit except when they don'tBRAVO
wish i could identify as a less shitty person desu
>>109948463>You know how mtf trannies outnumber ftm by a very large amount?It's the exact opposite.
>>109946871I did see a webcomic serial lile that one time that was about how autistic kids and trans kids should never be told no and how you have to respect their delusions and it was super preachy. It was terrible.
>>109946871>>109946871Found it look up assigned male. Its absolutely horrible.
>>109952384I think this counts as schizophrenia at least
an otherkin's thoughts/experiences
how to be a good dragonkin
>>109945827A real otherkin is crazy, a fake one is just pretending to be insane.
life for the otherkin is not always easy
>>109934715Probably some neurological trade-off.
>>109953579>fake information>implying that most things about dragons aren't literally made up bullshit from stories to kids rather than mythology people ever believed
>>109935034You're a what
>>109944507Who's "we", paleface?Anyway, find me a person in power who does not turn out to be a wackaloon in some way...
>>109935972Sounds like my ex wife
Imagine being both otherkin and vegan.
im kin ama
>>109947175>What`s the difference between otherkin and furry with a fursona?Furries don't REALLY identify as anthropomorphic animals, they just wish they could be.Of course the line is very blurry.
>>109953783Funny thing: such an individual STILL wins over someone who voted for Trump on the Sanity Scale.
......Y'know, I guess I kind of qualify as an otherkin in certain ways...Except I don't identify as an adorable animal but a robotic death machine. Pretty much this guy.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ke8XUZSYLw&list=PLZbXA4lyCtqobd_g1iS5mDR3LLKsCNw-D&index=11&t=0s
>>109947175>Furfags = want to be like animals because is cool or a fetish, or are simply obsessed with talking animals>Otherkin = believe that they are animals inside a human bodySo furfags are autistic but otherkins are straight up insane.
>>109954000>furfags are autisticExplain the correlation with the description of furries. But, yes, I am autistic.
But what if, those faggots aren't in fact otherkin but fags who put them down are otherkin but don't know or remember.Woah.
>>109955764Who's crazier, the man who hears voices in is head or the man who thinks there are voices in his head but doesn't hear them?
>>109950237It's never too late to be a stronger loving person.
>>109937669This feels like a parody comic. The punchline is literally "you'll never be a fraction as cool as the monster you imagine yourself as".
>>109953898Here’s your (you). Now go finish your homework, schools tomorrow
>>109944746Oldie but a goodie
>>109946950This comic contradict all the previous ones. This faggot can't even keep his autistics religious views consistent.And yes this is a fucking religion view: soul, reincarnation, angels, mythical creatures being real etc
>>109957684No you will find that most therians are athiests.
>>109945974But wolf has a lot more hair than a human so at most there would be marginally less fur. Besides, human hair is very different from fur so if the legs make a difference why not the haircut?
>>109942769>>109949596Otherkin do still exist, but nowadays I think they stopped being animals or mythical creatures and started being fictional characters.I don't mean they try their hand at original multiple identities. I mean that they pretend to be fictional characters from anime and video games.
>>109952406To be fair that's just rude. You don't walk up to people who look ambiguosly and ask, that would make most people feel bad about themselves.
>>109931390I can barely even remember otherkin and everything I do remember is shit I read on ED.
I know these comics are all 2005-ish, but I remember looking this stuff up in 2002 and it was a dying trend even then. I honestly think it peaked on Geocities and Angelfire in like 1999 and most links you could find (back when there were still web "rings" for this shit) were dead without an archive. It started out as adults on Usenet, but I think the huge influx of teenagers in the early oughts petered out the older crowd.I assume they all just eventually migrated to furrydom; ironically the more socially acceptable identity in comparison.>>109935972There were people like that. It wasn't all dragons and wolves and elves and vampires and shit. There were people who straight up identified as insects, squid-people, you name it.
>>109944912NoBecause they're jokes
>>109958844It blew up on Tumblr pretty big for awhile back in the day, then the Furry community kind of consumed it.
>>109948463There's also those people who get off on fantasizing about being women.
>>109949221Not really young men. Usually those 18-25 or at worst a really fit looking 16 year old.
>>109951469It's not actually. Mtf trannies outnumber ftm by almost half. Of course you know that already, but your raging AGP can't let you accept reality. Of course you wouldn't be a trannie if you could.
What happens if two otherkin claim to be the same character in a past life?
>>109959488Man, ask the ones who are extra crazy and believe they were an anime character in a past life. Some people want to believe they're extra special despite not doing anything special.
>>109959488Time and/or dimension travel.
>>109958884The power of vore.
>>109931390>people like this believe in an immortal soul>these same people also detest religionYou can't have it both ways you mentally ill degenerates.
>>109961137>paganism isn't a religion
>>109946950Does this person act like a fucking spaz in public?
>>109931390It's always gotta be a majestic creature like a gryphon, dragon, wolf or lionI wonder why no therians or otherkin have a naked molerat connection
>>109931958More or less. I wonder if there's like a rift between the part of the community that only thinks of themselves as animals and the ones that are like objects and fantasy and fictional crap. Imagine thinking you're far superior to the ridiculous peole who think they're dragons because you're just a bearded dragon and dragons aren't even real.
>>109962462Meanwhile the plain ol furfags laugh at them both, and we have nothing to be smug about
>>109956560that's true, but it's hard.what's needed are assumptions of the third degree: i don't just have to find the person i wish to be, but the person the person i wish to be wishes to be.
>>109962462There is, they have this weird elitism where they claim some creatures are legitimate and others are not. Plus people love trolling them.
>>109962462Otherkin started as an offshoot of people who thought they were elves in a past life, ergo "other"kin, as compared to Elfkin.So yes.
>>109946950And here I thought I was autistic for starting to think with an Irish accent if I read a big book with heavy Irish syntax, or in the metre of Shakespeare's work after I read his plays.
>>109958844>and vampires Fuck you just reminded me that back then I had an internet girlfriend from America who told me she thought she was becoming a vampire. She preferred being up at night and she'd be feeling a craving and then when she drunk the "blood" from a packet of frozen chicken bought at the store it went away. She did not appreciate me telling her that it wouldn't be classified as blood and that she'd probably get sick if she did that shit. This was before Twilight, as well.
>>109945864>wanting to be anything except a Polar Bear Fucking beta furries choosing inferior animals.
>>109944445Because its someone rationalizing their irrational beliefs.Nice try slammjng organized religion, knife ears.
>>109947175Legit cool pictureIs this a creature for ma game or something?
>>109953579Don't tell the Otakukin
>>109945607I would argue differently. There is a serious issue with an adult who thinks they are not human despite overwhelming evidence versus a human who likes to pretend he is not a human. It shows a strong disconnect with reality.
>>109946153Don't forget infiltrating the underworld by becoming a stripper!
>>109945496https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UqU7W8LdRd4>I said fictional charactersAstronauts aren't real, dude.
>>109946950Thats natural as we learn by mimicking what we like. When I watched a lot of anime I run and speak like characters i liked
>>109946999Watch videos from furry parades.I was suprised how many not wolfs there are.
>>109931390Really /co/?Most of you avidly defend the trans community but these comics are going too far? Despite the fact what these comics are describing is basically the same thing as being transgender.
>>109964735>Carmen Miranda's Ghost Fuck yeah. I don't remember how I found it but it was when FTL was still new-ish and I ended up using it as a soundtrack. 10/10 atmosphere. I still get chills from Dawson's Christian.
>>109964858Your brain being mixed up and sending you signals for having parts from the opposite gender/sex, whichever it is, is nothing like claiming it's sending you signals for having fucking wings or a beak. Phantom limb syndrome is also nothing like imagining that you've got wings, and thinking you can transform into an animal or that your imaginary tail can get caught in doors is simply woo woo spiritual bullshit.
>>109964910>Your brain being mixed up and sending you signals for having parts from the opposite gender/sex, whichever it is, is nothing like claiming it's sending you signals for having fucking wings or a beak.Yes it literally is the same thing. They are both mental delusions that the person experiencing can never attain.
>>109964947No, one is the brain sending mixed signals because it got wired wrong during development and mixed up the gender-split. They might never be able to attain what the brain is sending them, but that doesn't mean it's not causing the dysmorphia just like with phantom limb syndrome. But there's no basis for a human to "feel" wings on their backs, tails and scales. The brain might think your limb is still there or send you signals about there being a dick, but it can't send signals for something that's not part of the human body's make-up to begin with. One is a case of a glitching brain. The other is a case of wishful thinking and people really wanting to be their technicolour wolf persona because it's cooler or because they're escaping from something.
>>109964879>Dawson's ChristianOh man I wanted to ask this for ages- are there any other songs that just lose coherency halfway through? Dawson's Christian is as good as Northwest Passage up until the line "like a tiger to its meat" and then it just collapses.Still my almost favorite Leslie Fish song, second to thishttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PkwR8H3Oksk
>>109964858>most of you avidly defend the trans communityNo they don't/female and male brains do develop differently, you could presumably have one of the opposite gender. Isn't that why /pol/ is terrified of basedbeans?
>>109964947But they can attain other human parts.>no they dont meet my standardsYeah your standards based on what medical degree? Do you even have an education on this subject or are you pulling everything out of your ass?
>>109965040Why do you think it loses coherency? I've never had a problem with the protective ghost-ship battle part.
>>109934647Those comics look like from before 2010.
>>109936504I think panel 5 is about normies pretending to be otherkin, hence the animal disapproving of people in animal masks.
>>109937669If I am a centaur or dolphin otherkin should I be raping people?
>>109932843Even if she had wings, I'd be somewhat insulted that she would rather show it off to me than just using her hand like a normal person.
>>109965103Like the lyrics becomes a lot rougher. More like a standard fantasy song. Apparently Leslie Fish hates Banned From Argo because she wrote it up in a night past deadline and it became her most popular song, made me think the second half of Dawson's Christian was a similar situation.>and the stranger's shields were harder than the heart of any whore>like a tiger to its meat, the stranger then attacked the pirate fleet
>>109947140Can you tell us the story please?
>>109965079>Yeah your standards based on what medical degree? Do you even have an education on this subject or are you pulling everything out of your assYou know plenty of people with medical degrees get shit wrong all the time right? For fuck sake the Lobotomy was considered on of the greatest solutions to mental instability by medical professionals to the point the creator of the procedure was awarded the Nobel price for medicine. Your Frankenstein genitals are probably not the apt solution to a mental problem.
I know it's a meme to say that somethings a mental disorder, but otherkin is like, literally considered a mental disorder. https://wikipedia.org/wiki/Clinical_lycanthropy
>>109964995>during development and mixed up the gender-split.There's no gender split during fetal devlopment. Your sex is determined the moment you're conceived by you sex chromosomes. Just because the sex organs are developed later doesn't mean we were all the same sex at conception.
>>109943486Unfortunately made up genders find their way into mainstream more easily. Even into law in some places like Canada.It's the only reason Jordan Peterson is famous.
>>109944534They would get off of it.
>>109945498There was recently a thread in /tg/ about how vampire not being humans is stupid and you can call something a vampire on aesthetics alone and no one actually likes vampires, just their aesthetics.It was fun.
>>109945864She looks a bit young for that.
>>109965278The lapis-kin...well it was weird...she said they just started dancing around some random woman then kind of pounced on heridk SUkin is weird
>>109946950I got like this when I was a game tester. Play the same first person game with parkour 8 hours a day for weeks and you start seeing everything in the street as a jumping platform and need to resist the urge to climb on top of cars.I also have isekai fantasies about pretty much every fiction I read and watch, but not about videogames
>>109947147I am a phoenix trapped in a man's bodyYES I AM
>>109965595>Imagine being stuck in VR game not because of some stupid death game but because you got too used to your virtual body that real body becomes too hard to move.
So if they actually think they're animals, can they be hunted and classified as animals? I really want to be the first man to hunt and skin a dragon
>>109958480She's asking about the baby you homunculus. Its a very common thing to ask someone the gender of a baby in a stroller.
>>109965595Are they making a third mirror's edge gane?
>>109953898Get ready for second term
>>109965696The entire thing is like that
>>109962462There is a reason the comic uses phrases otherkin and therian. One of them is real animals and the other made up stuff.
>>109964858We don't defend trans community. We laugh at it.
>>109965733The game I tested came out years ago. I no longer work there.
Some of this stuff would be cute for a YA novel or comic, but trying to wrap my brain around actually believing this stuff is mindbreaking
>>109966077This but there are a lot crazies lately.
>>109932843>>109931390Maybe they played too much MTG and think they have totem armor / umbra
>>109945428I have seen fanfiction discussed on /co/, this place is going to shit
>>109946871There. Already was something like that for people with múltiple personalities, it was all teenage girls pretending tho
Alright guys, I admit, Im 25 and have a massive tf fethish to the point where im still a virgin (and frigid at that), but this is making me go wtf, I would be nice to turn into a dragon or whatever, but thats not reality, I think this person needs to experience more reality. I will admit reality sucks, but its there.
>>109946259Aww it’s okay corpse-kun
>>109931633>>109931390This is what happens when you don't beat your autistic kids.
>>109932023>2005Didn't realize how far this went back
>>109967886Livejournal really escalated the whole "closed ecosystem" problem back then, before tumblr
>>109967712I too have a TF fetish but I'm not deluded to believe to believe that I'm actually a mystical creature or something. It would be interesting to experience a different body but there is no way to truly be a bat even if you can change your physical form. "What Is it Like to Be a Bat?" How do you know that you aren't a vampire or a wolf in a human body? Do you naturally desire blood or feel comfortable drinking it? No? Then you aren't that particular made up creature in any meaningful way. Let's say that there is a cycle of reincarnation that goes to alternate realities and I was a fairy in a past life. Unless I can fly or use magic who gives a shit?
>>109968021hows your relationship life?
>>109968212Single. Not really looking. Why?
>>109953654imagine telling the vegan your spirit animal would eat their spirit animal

>>109958844Someone find the ancient texts
>>109931390This just looks like an active imagination plus confirmation bias.Yet I bet this thread is going to devolve into right wing trolling. If anyone actually believes otherkin are a threat, then they're even crazier than these overgrown children.
>>109931390>Me having imaginary wings is JUST LIKE people who have ACTUALLY LOST FUCKING LIMBS>We Otherkin are so considerate of others!
>>109970961>right wing trolling.Not trolling to tell a schizophenic faggot he is crazy
>>109946746>>109948654gender dysphoria is not transgenderism but rather the condition of feeling terribly bad about one's body because of transgenderism. for example, it's possible that gays are just transgenders without gender dysphoria. for another example of body dysmorphia, look up "female pov" porn. as a straight man, it is seriously disturbing to watch a first person pov without a cock, even with a hot woman giving oral pleasure. >>109948463the 40 percent suicide rate drops to normal levels (4 percent) post surgery, once you account for prior suicidality. how has this thread not been fucking shuttered for being totally unrelated to comics and cartoons?
>>109970961They are not a "threat" but they are a group of mentally ill individuals that can lead several autists to their fucked up subculture.Worst case scenario is hundreds of individuals butchering their bodies to look like a dragon. This also make transexuals look bad because people will say that both scenarios are related.
>>109938513kek holy shit this is literally a religious comic
>>109965747I don't get it.

>>109971499>seriously disturbingI don't know, I've played VR games where you just have a featureless robot body when you look down and it wasn't "disturbing". That seems like an overreaction.
lol eating raw meat
Their bullshit would be more palatable if they weren't all "cool" pop culture animals like wolves, dragons, horses and so on. Never heard of one claiming to be a garden slug or a mosquito or a fungus or whatever.

>>109973118>You don't walk up to people who look ambiguosly and ask, that would make most people feel bad about themselvesShe asked if the baby was a boy or girl. That is a very common question when they are young. Is he all alone walking around with a baby with no adults? Did he kidnap the baby?
