spirtual beings

Hey so friendly reminder to quit trying to police other people’s kintypes/calling them a horrible person because of their kintype/telling them to drop their kintype.

People are not who they were before. Kinning with a character that has done bad stuff does not mean that the person kin with them is a bad person, and usually, they feel really horrible about it!

Very importantly: stop saying this stuff because people can’t change or choose their kintypes. I know, I know, people say this all the time and antis always moan about it because there are some people using wrong terminology or who are just completely uninformed as to what kin is.

Being kin is involuntarily identifying as something nonhuman/fictional/etc, whether for spirtual reasons/psychological/etc

Being COPINGLINK is voluntarily identifying as something nonhuman/fictional/etc, whether to cope with trauma, mental illness, or other such reasons.

This is why I do not tolerate hate towards people’s kintypes- whether towards the character themself, the person being kin with a character outside their sexuality or race, the person being kin with a character who has done problematic stuff, etc.

They did not choose it, so you should not be attacking them for it, especially when you obviously don’t realize what being otherkin actually implies.

The Self cannot be pierced by weapons or burned by fire; water cannot wet it, nor can the wind dry it. The Self cannot be pierced or burned, made wet or dry. It is everlasting and infinite, standing on the motionless foundations of eternity. The Self is unmanifested, beyond all thought, beyond all change. Knowing this, you should not grieve.
—  The Bhagavad Gita (2:23-25)
