From One Who Creates, Not Steals
Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.
~ Carl Jung
There are two very clear problems with the concept of otakukin. Otakukin, otakin, fictionkin, fickin, whatever the hell you want to call them. The important thing to know is that they’re fakers without realising it. They have been continuously exposed to information by self-appointed figures in the otherkin “community” that it is perfectly okay to consider such simple experiences as spiritual ones.
Otherkin, therianthropy, fae, vampirism and weres are all self-appointed spiritual states of being involving non-human identities. In one part this is a perfectly natural and valid idea, in another it’s too popular for its own good. People without the mental faculties to critically look at themselves and separate from their external idols are assuming these labels for themselves, and this needs to stop.
There’s a so-called otherkin movement going around that’s supposed to do one specific thing: encourage acceptance of non-human identities, and to a lesser degree (though I personally consider more important) spread allowance for non-human representation in generated avatar mediums. This is a perfectly valid idea on its own also, however not only is it being poorly carried out, credulous mindsets are the very reason people laugh at the ‘kin in general.

I want an internet best friend again
My last one left me after five years of super close friendship when she decided she was Tiamat, the nine-headed dragon goddess.
Then suddenly I was the bad guy for telling her that the people feeding her this bull were, indeed, full of shit and looking to extort and manipulate her.
Then she stopped talking to me because some girl who called herself a fairy queen told her to.
