Otherkin is not a scientific theory.
It is not a fact that its believers are looking to prove true or false.
It is not an idea that Otherkin are trying to convince you that you have to believe.
Oherkin is a set of beliefs that come into being in response to emotions, intuitions and internal experiences that are personal and unique to each individual Otherkin.
Trying to disprove Otherkin is like trying to disprove that someone else’s boots are comfortable.
Take someone else’s boots and put them on and you say ‘these are uncomfortable, that’s a fact’. And you list all the things that make them uncomfortable. They pinch, they’re the wrong size, the material is worn through in places.
What you don’t see when you’re saying the boots are uncomfortable, is how they’ve stretched to fit their wearer. How the soles take the shape of their toes, how the worn fabric sits right at the bone of their ankle. You don’t see that these boots carried them up a mountain, and through a river, and home again without ever getting their feet wet.
Stop trying to disprove Otherkin. Give me back my boots.
