A bunch of degenerate role-players that appeared during the advent of the internet and role playing games. Evidence points towards them as being escapists (i.e., a person who tries to escape the pressures of their life through non-orthodox methods), though they fervently deny this. They bitch about the human race and their "wrong" ways. Also they are depressed over the fact that they are not whatever the hell they like to role-play. This also shows more evidence of escapism. Otherkin are also a bunch of hypocrites because if you do not believe the bullshit that they tell people you are a "mundane close minded human."

One annoying thing about otherkin is that they are tree huggers and that they are concerned about nature. That means that they are hippies which explains a lot of things since hippies are retarded pot smokers like otherkin (although the pot smoking part is questionable, the retardedness is a self evident truth). The reason why they believe that they are otherkin because ever since they started bullshiting the idea that they are otherkin, it has manifested itself within their three brain cells to a degree where they have become too full of shit to realize they are full of shit.

Recently a group called otakukin has popped up. Otherkin seemed to have accepted them as one of there retarded own. Probably because they have little support for the shitty otherkin community and they need reinforcements real bad. Or because they are so stupid as to believe that they are a reincarnate of anime characters even if the anime was made after they where born.

The internet has seen a major increase in lunatics and is a very scary place for our children. I can see why insane asylums where so full back then. Not because of wrongly convicted people but to keep these idiots off the street.
Joe: Hey Bill that guy is an otherkin. He threatened to use magic on me if I broke his resonance.

Bill: What did you do Joe?

Joe: I performed some magic on his ass with my foot.

People who use role playing to escape from their problems, taking on otherkin personas as a cry for help from the masses.

They seek to employ attention whoring as a cry for help from other people.

They wish to be seen, loved and appreciated online because in real life they know they are invisible to the world and no one cares about cowards who cannot deal with their problems in a healthy way!

They say they are here to heal others but they are the ones really in need of healing...how can they solve other people's problems if they cannot even work through their own shit?

Otherkin identify as NON-human personalities only to just not look at their own fucked up human condition that needs real healing!
Otherkin: "hi I am an angel, I am here to solve all your problems, currently I am going through a divorce and struggle for custody over my own child while I struggle with an unfaithful husband!"

Me: "uhhm if you are an angel of love and light why did you fuck up your marriage, why does your husband hate you, why do you have a failed family life, why is your personal life a mess? Yeah I bet your kid will really love you some day for leaving her dad!"

Another example would be:

Otherkin: "I am an angel here to save the world but I am too sacred shitless to deal with reality, so I stick with online role playing instead... It is people like me that give indigo children a bad aftertaste since when I am busy trolling and glorifying myself online you know I really don't have time to make a real difference out there in the REAL world."

Otherkin is a word for people who beleive, in one or many given ways, that they are something other then human. Mostly, this is in a spiritual sense. An otherkin individual may beleive that their spirit is anything fron ET's, Faeries, Angels, Animals, Dragons, Unicorns, ect.
I see many of the definitions listed here and feel alot of the predgidous is woefully misplaced. I am not an overweight web desighner at all, nor do I sit in my house or office and roleplay being " something else". I am a CEO of a very significant and large healthcare company, I have a large family and plenty of friends, and get out quite often, thank you. Kin come from many walks of life and may look like/resemble any 'Normal' person. Kin tend to be suspicious and even cold to 'normal' people for exactly the type of reactions outlined here. The unneccesary, immature, hateful comments by people who would rather not even stop to consider that the things they say may hurt other people. We have just as much right to beleive what we want to beleive as you do.
Before you go pointing fingers and critisizing how other people live their lives, turn that 'high powered' perception back on yourself. Maybe you'll see how much of an ass your being.
For those scattered few who wrote decent definitions in here, shame on you for not speaking up about this kind of immature definition. You are *not* helping anyone.
Otherkin: Beleif that an individual is, one one way or another, something other then human

Otherkin is a group of people who believe that in some way, they are not completely human. Some think they are a reincarnation of mythological beings, aliens, animals native to this planet, etc. Others think they've descended from ancient elvish or fae bloodlines and what have you. Probably most rarely, even some believe that they are existing on this plane in their "trueform" but under a "seeming," which from what I know is some sort of magical disguise.
While a vast majority of 'kin are most likely vying for attention and many may indeed be delusional, there are those who lead quite normal lives and are quite happy with the way things are.
"I never would have guessed, but my friend is an otherkin. She seemed so normal, too."
"The otherkin just wanted a place to relax, but it seemed that even on their own turf the flamers would not give them peace."

When a mentally unstable person has not been properly hospitalized and given medication, and has come to believe they are not human, superior to others, or somehow linked to an animal/fictional being spiritually. Like most batshit crasy individuals, their shit filled minds are impossible to flush clean and will deny any aspects of being human.

If encountered in real life, quickly call the proper institution in your area, and the men in white coats will gladly give them the desperate shock treatment they need.
Otherkin: IM A DRAGON!
Rational person: No, you're human...
Otherkin: STFU hyooman, before I burn you with my fiery breath!
Rational person: Idiot.. walks away

Crazy people on the internet who desperately try to make themselves seem cool by claiming to be a reincarnated version of some kind of popular, charismatic animal or a monster they heard about in a roleplaying game. Usually they justify this by insisting their daydreams have some kind of bearing on the real world. It generally does not work, except with fellow otherkin and of course furries.

Lately the otherkin have branched off into even more mind-bogglingly insane territory with the otakukin movement.
I don't care how big the wingspan of your fifty-foot-tall-humanoid-dragon-soul is, Mr. Otherkin. I still don't like you.

A person who has inherited the traits of something of another being. This can be any of the few mentioned, as well as others. These traits are usually recognized during times of great upheaval in the individual's life, known as an Awakening.

Recently, due to the popularity and drive for belonging, many new 'kin' have arisen. Because of the popularity of the idea, and because of the increase in roleplaying, many of these new kin are false, and merely imitating it in order to find acceptance in a group. In other words, they are chasing a trend to feel part of something. These imitators are usually the members of the otherkin community that tend to give true otherkin the bad reputation many of the members on this website have given them. Also, those that become overly defensive and hostile contribute to this, and do not benefit any members of the community by making subtle threats.

Most otherkin live totally normal lives, with jobs, families and anything else a normal person enjoys. They simply live with the knowledge of being something more than just a regular being, and that leads them to discover what it is about them that is so different. The otherkin that gain bad reputations are not the norm, and others of the kin community should not be judged by the actions of those that gain notice.
1.) The kid on the forum claimed to be Posiden, as an otherkin. Both kin and non-kin alike knew he was an idiot.

2.) James always felt a desire in his heart for things beyond what he felt was real and normal, and discovered his otherkin traits through a difficult Awakening.

3.) People that mock otherkin are only insulting those who can't rise above petty insults, who are usually the least sincere about their experiences.
