Anyone want to join me in finding a new term for actual otherkin + fiction kin to use because tumblr fuckin ruined it?
This isn’t even a joke! like if anyone has any ideas leave a reply pls!
Otherkind / fictionkind.
Those were older terms, largely out of use now. It’s what some greymuzzles suggested. Tumblrkin did ruin it, that’s why we call them tumblrkin. You won’t find this problem anywhere outside of their circles.
Use those two above and everyone who knows a little bit about community history will know what you’re talking about.
(It also dethrones the myth of otherkin being ‘other + kinship’, when it’s “other (as in not man, not elf) + -kind” (elvenkind, mankind, etc).)
