Another dislike I have re: the tumblr kin community is that everyone is so focused on being ‘valid’ and whether it’s problematic to identify as X if you haven’t experienced Y that there is little to no exploration of what being otherkin (therians + fictionkin included) actually is like.
I rarely, if ever, see people comparing their experiences (not even in a judging way - just 'oh that’s cool!’) whilst on most places outside tumblr this is a big part of the 'kin experience’. Understanding not only how you came to identify as your kintype, but also why, and what that entails for you, is such an interesting topic and I wish it was more commonplace here.
i don't own a dog, but i went to that person's IG and i was like "that's a fucking salad. why are you feeding your dog salad. stop."
That was my first reaction, too.
My second reaction was “I hope you’re just not talking about all the vet appointments your dog has because you’re being #fuckingfancy and it’s not glamorous enough 4 u, not because you’re just not seeing one.”
She seems more interested in making cute miniaturised versions of her own meals than benefiting her dog. There’s more effort in cycling through their “veggies, greens, fruits, nuts, seeds, herbs, fermented food, hempseed oil, sometimes orange juice, and probiotics” than finding appropriate meats. Idk man. I’ve seen my fair share of 13yo shelties, and that dog looks like it’s falling apart.
