what are your thoughts on people who have a /lot/ of kintypes? i get constantly picked on for having 10+ otherkintypes and a handful of fictionkintypes, but i can’t help that i have memories for all of them…

I’m not going to tell you who and what you can or can’t be. But I do very strongly recommend you continue putting in the time and energy for some serious introspection on each and every one of them. 

It took me ten years to figure out just one, give or take a few other past lives that I don’t consider kintypes.

A kintype is not to be taken lightly, and honestly any time anyone has a long list of them, or figures them out really quickly, I’m inclined to think they’re not really putting in the effort. But it’s not for me to judge.

The two I think i have I’m still in the process of introspection

I have 5 kintypes, fae, fox, dragon, unicorn, rabbit.   Fae is kind of mixed in with the other 4 so its more like 4.5 kintypes if you want to get literal.  It took me over 20 years to make these determinations about myself conclusively.

I never get any of the cool bots

WAIT WHAT THE FUCK

GUYS WHAT THE FUCK

What is this creepypasta shit? I’m so confused.

@nick-nocturn you got anything on this?

This is very easy to explain for those of the “other than human persuasion”.  What you are seeing is an example of meta-rampancy.

Meta-rampancy is when machines incapable or not programmed to determine the difference from sentient being and non-sentient AI, starts interacting in a space where both hang out.   This is amplified when the algorithms are trying to appear to be a ‘sentient being’ like a human.

As both sentient and non-sentient feedback is absorbed into the learning algorithms, the routines get confused.  Particularly in an environment like tumblr where accounts are half bots and half humans.  But since the humans have the heuristic intelligence to detect bots, they usually cut them off, and the bots instead start interacting with eachother in extended conversations where neither are sentient, both are trying to reach winning condition, both think they are winning, and both save the data they fed back into eachother as positive responses.

Resulting in bots which, when they reach a sentient being, respond with content that is uncanny, peculiar, and surreal, but leave you wondering if they are a bot going terribly wrong or the result of a psychotic mind.

If you want to see an even more extreme example of this, this time on Youtube Kids, I present this article.   This is also an example of meta-rampancy and what it produces visually is startling.

make america again. just make it again. let’s start over completely. we had a good run but it’s time to hit the reset button and try again

some thoughts for america 2.0:

  • national anthem is gasolina
  • no founding fathers whatsoever but maybe we give dwayne the rock johnson a mountain statue or two
  • let’s do way, way less genocide this time. im thinking definitely like 0% of the genocide from the last time, that seems good
  • maybe more holidays about dogs

We can do this actually.  Its called a Constitutional Convention and its high time for one…

Thought for the Day

dovewithscales:

ghrianleon:

dovewithscales:

There is no verb form of “kin”. You cannot “kin with something”, and “kinning” is not a thing.

The question of whether or not it’s “okay to kin with that” should never even be asked, because it’s not possible to “kin with that” in the first place. You either are a thing or you are not. It is involuntary. Ask instead (at all times) whether or not your words and actions at any given moment may be harmful to anyone else.

Otherkin is who and what we are, not something we do. It is not an action because it is not a choice.

And if you are “kin with” something that means you are their relative. I am not “kin with” dragons. I am a dragon. I am kin with my cousin.

eat my shit susan. i hope you get curb stomped

How very eloquent. You have a real gift. Rarely have I seen such marvelous command of the English language, such clever and creative prose.

How can I possibly disagree after you’ve so thoroughly proven your point? Truly I have seen the error of my ways.

You don’t at all sound like an angry Tumblrkin with no argument at all who stoops to ham handed personal attacks because you’re enraged at being called out for something you know is true. Well done.

Now if anyone has anything intelligent to say I’d be happy to have an actual discussion about the topic. I’d DM this person if they hadn’t blocked me to avoid hearing my response.

I haven’t been a part of otherkin communities for a long time. (Much suppression on my part.) What I’ve seen on tumblr so far has me really dumbfounded. Do real gatherings and conversations happen anymore?

Yes. You just have to know where to look. There’s a list of good blogs in my FAQ somewhere or other. I think it’s in the otherkin masterpost.

Can I just get down with the OP @dovewithscales for a moment and say as someone who has been kin for over 20 years that…

SHE IS ABSOLUTELY RIGHT.

These people who think you see something and then “kin with it” have absolutely no idea what being otherkin is.  You are born otherkin, it is something that is a life affector, not a life choice.   The process of discovering what you are is part of a life path, and very often its one you instinctually know you’re on before you even know there is a word for it.

I am not saying its impossible that you can’t become otherkin during your life, but this whole thing about “kinning with X” is outside the definition of otherkin.  You will feel your kintype from within, not get it from an external source.  What you are is part of you, it can’t choose you and you can’t choose it, you can only discover it as a part of what you are.

TL;DR Tumblr/Internet PLEASE stop equating “otherkin” with “permission to take on X identity as a persona”.  You aren’t getting it.  If you really feel you “identify as something”, then take the time to stop and figure out why, and when you have, THEN come out as otherkin.   You owe this introspection mostly to yourself, to thine own self be true, if not to anyone else.

The fae do not conform to the stereotypes humanity has given them.

Those who say “The fae are all beautiful and cute”, are wrong.  Just as the ones who say “we are all hideous and malevolent creatures”.   Those who say “The fae cannot lie,” are wrong, just as the ones who say “The fae always lie”.  Those who say “The fae want to kill you” are wrong, just as the ones who say “The fae want to keep you safe” are.  There is no “One fae way”, and looking for it is folly.

The fae are even more varied than humanity in how we interact, what feelings we have towards humanity and nature.  For we are the spirits of nature.  We can sense who are our allies and who are our destroyers.  It is hard for humans to understand us, and sometimes they feel there is deceit involved in our ways, but there isn’t.   However if you want to know if there is a secret to understanding our ways, know that the closer you are to nature, the easier it will be.

There are fae that are cute and tiny and live in your flowers.  Just as there are fae that will tower over your castles.   A “cute” and stereotypical fae may be more malevolent than you can imagine, and the old hags may save your life.   Judging us on appearance will work against you always.

There are some blogs that ignore my asks and stopped posting in the fae tags because they know I am here.  Because they want fae their way and don’t care about what is real.   They want their take on fae to be real.  But I suppose if you just want a space where things conform to your reality, go off I guess.

But for everyone else, know that we do not conform to your reality.  The moment you think you know us is the moment you find out you don’t, that there is so much more to know, and the fae will never fit into one of your boxes.
