*seduces the president so i can find out the truth about aliens*
imagine michelle tho. day after inauguration like
"hey hon i love you but you’ve got to level with me…. are aliens for real?"
What matters is you helped to spread harmful words towards vulnerable individuals and aren’t taking responsibility for it.
"haha what do sjws want next, a bisexual disabled trans woman of color?"
THAT WOULD BE A START.
You might not have meant to hurt otherkin, but you hurt neurodivergent people and made a post without first checking to see if it was a troll blog. apologize for that and we’re cool.
I need to get something off my mind :
Why is it that every blog I’ve seen that identifies as ‘otherkin’ have all self-diagnosed disorders and illnesses alongside several sexualities I’ve never heard of. It’s one thing to identify a certain way, but seriously—
You are not a fucking special snowflake. I have several of these disorders, and know people with all the rest. None of us advertise it on our blogs, you know why?
Because these disorders are not an accessory, they are not something to romanticize. These are real conditions, which have killed and led to the attempted suicides of people I know and care for.
Get the hell over yourself— the world doesn’t revolve around you, and it sure as hell won’t stop turning when you decide that you have some ten-and-counting disorders, all self-diagnosed. You know what that says? It says you’re willing to place a label on yourself, but you aren’t willing to get help.
-| this is something I have observed— I am not invalidating ‘otherkin’, but returning validation to those who do suffer from these disorders |-
Okay, first off the screenshot you took is from a troll blog. They literally exist JUST to make the otherkin & neurodivergent community look bad. So you are already using a screenshot from a blog that is on your side as an excuse to scream at otherkin. You claim that you aren’t invalidating us, and yet you’re calling us “special snowflakes” (which is so problematic im not even going to BEGIN) and telling us to get over ourselves.
Onto your problems with self diagnosis—there is nothing wrong with self diagnosis. More often than not, we do DAYS of research before putting the label of a condition on us. AND, many of us do not have the money or a supportive family that will be behind us in order to GET a diagnosis and help. I have BPD. My family has a history of it, my mother is diagnosed, but there is not enough money right now to pay for a psychologist to give me an official diagnosis. On top of this, the process of finding a medication that works is long, strenuous, and expensive as fuck.
We know that a disorder isn’t an accessory. I’ve lost friends to disorders too. Friends and family of mine have committed suicide because of depression, have been on the brink of suicide because their disorder makes them feel isolated. WE KNOW.
Let me stress again: you used a troll blog as an example, so they’re going to do everything to make us look bad.
AND, on the topic of the “genders and sexualities you don’t know of”:
So what? What exactly are these labels doing to you to make you personally feel harmed or threatened?? These labels give folks a community, a place to feel accepted and a word that they can put to their feelings and say YES, YES THIS IS IT. It makes them happy. It gives them validation. It isn’t, in any way, hurting you personally.
A quick reiteration because you attacked and hurt people i care about and that REALLY pisses me off:
the concept of androgyny bugs me because tbh it’s just mostly masculine with no body hair and a soft jawline
like to be considered androgynous you have to be like 80% masculine and i’m so not about that and idk it just frustrates me like i want people to know i’m not a girl but i don’t want to have to be fuckin masc to achieve that
