I’ve seen more posts and heard more about things like barking, growling, howling, etc. in public.

I’ll be honest. I thought a lot, and I mean a lot, about...
trying to find nice things for friends in the otherkin tag is impossible people just want more drama? i want people to talk about...
…how about “I REALLY IDENTIFY WITH AND LOVE THIS CHARACTER/THING”

I’m having a hard time seeing any justification for racial ownership of this English-language term.
