honestly, as robotkin, i'm tired of the pretentious bullshit against being tech-kin, and the terrible "u can't be a toaster lol" jokes. just because you can't understand my identity doesn't mean it's less valid than your own.
im a deitykin (specifically sun wukong and occasionally hanuman) and i still feel super guilty about identifying as somehow connected to a god from another culture and from a religion im not exactly entirely a part of. i try to be respectful, but i'm still worried about offending people!
my friend is doing research right now to figure out ways to awaken my kitsunekin, and I'm honestly terrified that there will be nothing there to be awakened to. What if I find out that, this whole time I've been saying I'm otherkin, I'm not otherkin at all? That my little habits that I think my kitsunekin does are just unexplainable happenings? I'm so scared.
I awoke as an angelkin around the same time a few other people I know as acquaintances did, which would be nice, except that they're all people that I always thought kind of disliked me. I'm a low ranking guardian angel, and a vast majority of other angels I've met are like, seraphs and cherubs...I get the distinct impression they find me and my kind annoying, or not worth their time and support. It's lonely.
As an otherkin, I'm very disappointed by the community. It seems like it's all just a group of teenagers/young adults whining about being oppressed when they actually aren't, collecting new labels/kintypes like they're Pokémon balls, and circle-jerking into Polyvore outfit creator. Can't we do anything remotely productive?
