Otherkin Being Otherkin is a lot like being black in the 50s. What I mean by this is that coming out of the closet as an Otherkin (like coming out as a black person) can be dangerous to your health. I personally have had people shout slurs at me in the park, had a large carton of Whoppers candy thrown at my back, and been denied a position in data entry simply because I am not shy about telling people that my body contains the soul of an ancient dragon named Stryyker.

So since not many people in the world seem to understand what it means to be an Otherkin, I figured I would write this Q&A to straighten you people out.

Q. What is an Otherkin?

A. Simple! An Otherkin is a nonhuman creature who was accidentally born into the body of a human. You might laugh when you hear this, but let me assure you that it is indeed possible. “Scientists” might try to tell you that a person’s consciousness, behavior, and feelings come from their brains as they develop. Don’t make me laugh! What they are forgetting is the soul, which is really where your personality comes from.

Some of you might also laugh at the idea of a soul. But just because there isn’t any evidence for something doesn't mean it isn't real. Just look at molecules. A science teacher might tell you they are all around, but who has ever seen a molecule? That’s right: nobody. They aren't real.

Dragon Tales
Q. I think I am an Otherkin. How can I find out for sure?

A. Well finding out you’re Otherkin isn’t as easy as you might think. It's a lot more difficult than finding out you’re gay. For that, I assume one day you'd just be walking down the street and another man bending over to pick up some litter. You'd think  “Oh, my...” and suddenly everything becomes clear. Realizing you're Otherkin isn't quite so easy, I'm afraid.

For me it was watching an episode of Dragon Tales (crazy as it seems) that brought out my inner dragon. I felt a deep connection to the characters that I’d never felt, even for other humans. This even goes for my girlfriend Tina. As big and beautiful as she is, sometimes I can’t help but think of another dragon when I have love with her.

Q. Aren’t you people just crazy?

A. No. This is another big misconception about Otherkin. I fail to understand why this judgmental society of ours has to have a label for everybody. Just because a person thinks they were born an angel, believes they have magical powers, and imagines their back is itching because wings are trying to grow out of, it does not mean they're crazy. Mental illness might be the case for the majority of otherkin, but you shouldn’t assume it's the case for all of us.

One interesting event was when my therapist “diagnosed” me as mildly schizophrenic and borderline autistic. I couldn’t contain my inner dragon’s rage. I invoked my true name (Stryyker) by shouting it, and tipped over his coffee table and kicked a beanbag chair. After that, he wouldn’t see me anymore. He must have felt pretty sheepish after that. I guess revealing some of my true powers showed him I wasn’t crazy after all!

Elf EarsQ. Can you provide any evidence of your otherkin-ness?

A. OK first of all the correct term would be “otherkine”, not otherkin-ness. Secondly, can you provide evidence that you are human (no) so shut your trap. Thirdly, all of the evidence is there, most people just choose not to believe it. Here are a few things.
  1. I did witness my friend call lightning down from the sky on one occasion. He (a daemonic Otherkin) informed us he was going to display his power to us and then nodded knowingly. At that time I did then see a bolt of lightning strike the ground a few miles away. There was not a storm in the area at the time. The nearest storm was quite far off. I’d like to see science explain that one

  2. Pop culture. Beings such as angels, demons, dragons, and werewolves have been in popular culture since the beginning of time. Famous painter Leonardo drew pictures of angels. Television shows feature witches and ghosts. Dragons and demons can be seen in other arts in the museum. There is a connection here people. Open your eyes.

  3. Dinosaur bones. If you’ve been to a museum and seen the dinosaur bones there, you’ve essentially seen the birth of Dragonic Otherkine. You will notice that all dinosaurs have two eyes, two arms, two legs, and five fingers. I assure you this is not a coincidence. Tell this to a professor of natural history and watch his eyes grow wide. That's fear you're seeing.

  4. Thousands of people believe they are Otherkin. Most of these people believe exactly
    the same things. If you know anything about math, you would realize that it is statistically impossible that this could occur randomly. The only logical explanation for this is that there is a common elder thread which woves these people together. 

    What, are you going to try to tell me that all Otherkin are emotionally damaged loners or mentally unstable nutcases who’ve simply latched onto a common supernatural explanation for their inability to function socially instead of facing up to the awful fact that they’re actually just unlikable or unattractive social-cripples? That’s a little far-fetched for my tastes. 

That is all I shall explain about Otherkin for now. If anyone has any additional questions for me, feel free to email this site and they will forward them to me. I will answer them if they are intelligent and I if have time. Thanks friends.
