ughh that post was so rambling and incoherent but i don’t know how to improve it.
Basically, you have a right to be upset because of the troll...
(Substituting Christianity in place of Otherkin for hyperbolic effect.)
Are otherkin the new furry?
Only if you mean in the literal sense that one community is a bit younger than the other....
In my first post on Tumblr, I ought to mention that I am a very busy person. With my duties and my projects I am rarely given time to...
Silveth, ChasingCarabou, and Reimaden, I think I’m mostly looking at you here, but it’s an open question to anyone who thinks an otherkin shelter/community center/etc is necessary and that people would travel to visit it, wherever it got set up:
When’s the last time you traveled to visit Lothlorien Nature Sanctuary?
I mean, this is a space that was set up in 1987. It was specifically described as “the green havens for elfinfolk”. But you know what? I don’t hear much about otherkin — elves or otherwise — going there. There was a little contact many years back, around 2003 or so, but it seemed to just die out before anything came of it. A largely parallel community, the faeids, grew out of one of the gathers there. But there’s relatively little overlap between our two communities.
If otherkin aren’t willing to make the trip to a major sanctuary which specifically has “Wild Magick Gathering” and “Elf Fest” among its festivals, I don’t see many making a trip to a much smaller community center.
