Otherkin: The Mole of Tumblr

Remember “The Mole” from the last Austin Powers movie? You know, the one with Goldmember, the Dutch legend himself? If you can’t remember or you haven’t seen Austin Powers in Goldmember (shame on you!) Here’s his face: 

Now, I don’t know about you, but I can’t quit looking at that mole of his. I mean, it’s just so massive, to the point where it just dominates any conversation about him. Even if this guy was by any other account a goddamn legend, people would still talk about that massive mole of his. In my mind, that’s the role otherkin play on Tumblr. They are notorious for claiming things like being a turtle, a griffin, a dog, just about any animal that you or I can think of. The first question anyone should ask is: “How the..? Why?“ The best way to analyse this is to take a look at this video about an otherkin in Australia (Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=komph9TxTbI) . She mentions, almost immediately, that she’s “given up on fitting in”. Her attitude is essentially the main one for otherkin, as they want to be noticed, to be seen as different and special. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not an intolerant guy. As long as whatever you enjoy doesn’t involve anything like rape or violent beatings, or isn’t completely idiotic. I’m cool with it. You do you, I guess. But this whole otherkin thing is idiotic. No rational, sane, mentally sound human being can truly believe that they’re a goddamn turtle, and if they do… there’s a reason why shrinks exist. This whole movement is essentially a call for attention, and I do realise I’m fuelling the fire a bit here, no need to tell me. There’s no other explanation why, it’s not scientifically possible for that type of situation to exist, and everybody else thinks it’s very strange, to say the least. To sum up then, those within the otherkin movement aren’t necessarily bad people, some might actually be rather pleasant on every other level. They’re just gargantuan attention-whores. And that’s why, at least in my opinion, the otherkin movement (if you can call it that) is Tumblr’s massive mole. I just can’t seem to get away from it…
