Transethnic is a load of crap. It was made up by 4chan to make fun of Tumblr genderspecials, it’s just a big joke. Although there are some SJW loons who actually tried to use it as an excuse to claim they’re transblack so they can cop out on their anti-white hypocrisy. If you meet anyone who claim to be transethnic, avoid them at all costs, they are beyond all hope.
Otherkin is an unusual, uncommon mental condition in which the person believes they are secretly an animal in one way or another, such as having reincarnated from one, or believing they are a were-animal (therianthropy), or that they are an animal’s soul in a human’s body. This is actually a legitimate condition, although it is usually completely harmless and doesn’t affect the person’s mental health much other than believing they’re a non-human animal.
Sadly, Otherkins are one of the many conditions that Tumblr self-diagnosers have attacked to try and repurpose it into an uniqueness fad. Here’s a few signs of othertrenders:
1. Otherkin are usually casual about their belief, as it’s just a normal thing to them, or secretive due to discrimination. Othertrenders will repeatedly shove it into your face and brag about being otherkin every chance they get.
2. Trying to use being an otherkin as an excuse to use genderspecial animal pronouns.
3. Going on spiels about how humans are evil animal-murdering bastards and deserve to be wiped out, then using otherkin to claim they’re an exception and/or are better than humans.
4. Switching out animals for anime characters, objects, fictional creatures, abstract concepts, or the more.
This isn’t so you can attack or call out othertrenders (they’ll just use it to play victim and cry ableism), but so you’re aware that those are NOT otherkin, and please don’t judge actual otherkin by othertrenders’ vile actions and exaggerations.
Pretty much like how you wouldn’t judge trans people by the actions of “cis scum” tucute transtrenders.
Hey Oogie Boogie, I’m otherkin and would like to correct you about some things.
First, animal otherkin are normally called Therian, and say they have the soul of an animal or were an animal in a past life.
Second, otherkin is used for creatures like faeries and demons. There are also people who are mythoskin, and they are normally like griffins and stuff.
Some otherkin use it as a coping mechanism, but most use it spiritually.
Mod Ko, a faekin
I want to know what all these people are smoking.
To ask nothing.
To expect nothing.
To depend on nothing.
