Guess all those trolls who shout “go see a psychiatrist” will have to find another thing to do with their life now that an actual doctor chimed in and sunk their ableist garbage ship.
P.S. Being otherkin =/= clinical lycanthropy. Generally speaking, clinical lycanthropy involves the actual delusion that you are physically a non-human animal or are transforming into one. While some otherkin may experience delusions or may find that their kin identities are affected by delusions, the majority of otherkin know they are physically human and do not doubt that any more than someone who lived a past life in Egypt doubts that he’s American now.
