Watchful-Entity is back under the url Watchless so just be aware.
Logo’s What?! Documentary called I Think I’m An Animal airs next week at 10 pm Eastern time on Tuesday. I fully intend to watch it. Saw a preview of it while watching the What?! The Long & Short of Body Hair episode, which was fascinating as hell. My hopes aren’t high for ITIAA but we’ll see what happens. Hopefully it’ll do us good rather than bad as a community. but I HIGHLY doubt that. At least it’s on Logo. That network is fucking awesome and I love watching some of the shows on their, like the What?! Documentaries and such.
Keep your digits crossed that this pans out decently. Not happy that it focuses mostly on Therians…but it might be safer to start there.
The first Otherkin “community” I was ever exposed to is the one on ChickenSmoothie and that was back in either very late 2009 or early 2010. I regret to say that it was and still is a very toxic environment full of stupid and NOPE. No I’m not better than anyone on that forum thread for being Kin, or for any reason at all. But I’d like to think I have a little more common sense when it comes to discussing Kinship than at least half of the posters there.
Not gonna lie, I said A LOT of stupid shit in the past there. Hell, I have somewhere on my blog some of my worst comments from 2010. One day I’ll dig them up. And I used to be wayyy more active on the thread. Now I post VERY rarely and only to inject an introduction or an important point of view on a current topic. Otherwise, I stay the fuck out and just watch from a distance as morons ramble on and on. CS’s Kin thread is kinda like a launchpad in which newer or less experienced Kin have to work out the kinks before learning the harsh reality about Kinship or Therianthropy. In time, hopefully everyone there will see how shitty it can be. I hit that point forever ago and still loathe it.
Now that I’m kinda in with the Tumblrkin, which is an even more toxic habitat, I can interact with more beings and learn new shit and watch as trolls and haters come in and shit on us all. Plus I can laugh at the really awful attempts at trolling and all the Objectkin troll blogs like Transhats or Eggkin. At least it’s a step up from the Otherkin thread over on CS. And here I can actually not censor my language because while CS is family friendly, Tumblr is a free for all cesspool.
Hey tags, I have a rather dumb question.
If I wrote a few drabbles based on things from Nonhumanquotes, would anyone be interested in reading them? Hell, I’d be willing to take a request from someone to start off with. Just state your Kintype and choose a NHQ entry you think I could work with and I’ll try and compose something this weekend.
It might be best to start with a Therian since I’m not exactly well-versed in info on demons or angels or fae or dragons on the like. But I suppose I could try if asked.
I’ve been fully Awakened as Demonkin for at least half’a decade at this point. Before that, I was always a very strange child. Things just kinda clicked as the years went on. And here I am today, a very disgruntled burd. But I wasn’t always this disenchanted with the Otherkin community. No, it was a gradual nosedive into dissatisfaction. And yes, I do wish I could repair my disillusioned sights.
I personally cannot believe it’s been 5 or so years since I actually came into my own with being Kin. Sure I was Other from the beginning, but it wasn’t a completely actualized time. My child mind would not be able to process the deviation and differentiate it from what is considered the norm. Back then, there was no concept of “human me” and “Other me” but instead it was just me. Animality and all.
Back when my Kinship was new, I felt intimidated by beings who’d been Awakened for YEARS and hung around Otherkin settlements online for YEARS. Now I’m one of the not-so-newbie Kin and it kind of sucks looking back on everything. Not because I hate being Nonhuman, oh no. It’s because I’ve grown bitter and maladjusted. Sometimes I wish I could just revitalize my enthusiasm and bite the bullet and actively participate in the Kinmmunity.
It’ll only get stranger from here.
Has any Kin been feeling effected in any way by the comet that’s currently finishing its travels semi-close to Earth? I haven’t been doing too well these past few days and I’ve talked to a Faekin friend of mine and she feels the same. A few of her friends have echoed the same as well.
I guess I really need to make a better to reconnect with some Kin so I can end my isolation and loneliness issues. What I need in my life is some close, decent Kin friends. Of all types, of course. Especially Kin who are outside the Therian range because, even if having Therian friends is awesome, I’d like to get to know a wide variety of species. Not just animals that have been alive here on Earth at some point.
