And I would disagree with you.
While there is a logical reason why a person could come out of the womb feeling “like a boy” when they have a vagina… there’s very little rationale for why they would feel like a Fox. Or a Dragon. Or a Squid.
It’s entirely possible that there be a genetic coding situation that causes the gender and the sex to not line up in the same way that sexual orientation and biological sex do not always line up (producing homosexuals).
However, I can think of precisely zero reason why the coding instruction that tell a Gorilla to be a Gorilla would wind up in Dave the Cashier.
More importantly, these alleged otherkin do not ACT like the animals they claim to be and they don’t seem especially inclined to narrow down what kind of “other” they are kin to.
Are they a red fox? A Fennec Fox? A grey Fox? A kit fox? If they haven’t been leaping at their food prior to reading the wikipedia article why not?
A little trans-girl doesn’t have to read the wikipedia article to know that she wants her penis to go away. Because it’s instinctual.
Earlier I mentioned David Reimer. He was born male, feeling male, but made to live as a female by the sick fucking doctor that destroyed him in the end and the parents who honestly didn’t know any better.
Despite hormones, clothing, and every fucking thing else they did they COULD NOT CONVINCE DAVID HE WAS A GIRL.
By age NINE he was telling them to fuck off, that he was very much a him.
By age 14 he hated the doctor so much that he threatened suicide.
By age 38 he was dead by his own hand.
Now, you go ahead and find me some fucking Otherkin that suicides while pushing 40 because nobody treated them like a Fennec fucking Fox and I might reconsider my position. Until then, no.
Otherkin is a group of children and young adults playing make believe. And that’s fine. Seriously, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that.
But validating your make believe persona by latching onto people who are genuinely troubled by a world that does not understand them is unacceptable.
