Jarandhel's Tumblr

An older otherkin getting on tumblr. I'm probably going to regret this.

Lets list all of my previous blogs that were shut down due to bullying from the otherkin community.

-wolf
canislupusology
pharyngology
tawnytail
archetypal-fear

And a few others I cant remember the names to.

Leave transcats alone. I know what being bullied by your own fucking kind feels like.

Just to remind everyone, tawnytail was the troll blog that gave us this:

I find this amusing. I’m pretty sure I’ve eaten cat scat before. It’s a territorial thing. Also, mother wolves eat their young’s scat in order to keep the den clean. I also have urinated on people when in a mental shift. There are a lot of crude and ‘disgusting’ things about being an animal. One should never exclude those facts from daily therian life. We are who we are, shit eaters, pissers, and all. Another great thing about being part nonhuman? Having no shame. (:

This is why stuff should be archived.  So people don’t forget, and names can’t simply be changed to hide past actions.

Today started out like any other day. I was sleeping peacefully in my cat cave, not a worry in the world, until the humans in my house decided to ambush me.

My mom quietly snuck into my room with a full glass of water and dumped it on my head while I was in the middle of a dream. It scared the…

I promised not to post/reply to this person but I can’t get over the sheer amount of stupid radiating off this post. This post is Defcon 5 levels of moron. Future generations will mourn for the brain cells they have lost due to their forefathers reading this post. Stupidity will be passed genetically to the children of those who have witnessed this post that has redefined an era of stupid.

You are not oppressed because you were forced to bathe. If you clean yourself with either nothing or your own saliva you are a walking ball of gross and fucking nasty. Just because your cat or spirit sister of whatever licks its balls to stay clean doesn’t mean you have to. I don’t go piss on trees because I’m a dog, I’m a human fucking being. The result of billions of years of natural selection and evolution. You are acting like a shit-chucking ape throwing a temper tantrum.

Grow up. Seriously. Your main problem isn’t that you’re an otherkin, the main problem is that you’re a child and react to your surroundings childishly.

And fucking shower, that’s disgusting. The Romans didn’t develop plumbing so you could sit around and whine about how oppressed you are for having running water.

Is the OP a troll?

If not, I think my brain just broke from the stupid.

Yes, they are.

The best advice I can give you if you’re being harassed is to ignore it. I know that sounds cliche, but it’s true, and works in many occasions.

As an example, there’s another weird online community out there, called transhumanism. I won’t go into what transhumanists believe, except to say that it is out of the mainstream by a lot. And transhumanists never get trolled. Why? It simply isn’t fun, because most transhumanists are academics who don’t respond to trolling in an entertaining way, which is to say, at all.

When I say ignore, I mean really ignore. Don’t make cute little journal entries about how you’re laughing along with the trolls, don’t self-parody, don’t edit their wikis, nothing. Anything you do will just make it worse. If you do this long enough, the trolls will pick up their things and go home.

It's not a troll account. I don't think someone should be ashamed of who they are, and if this man hurt anybody obviously actions should be taken- but I had said I knew naught of his story and just wanted your opinion. I think the hypocrisy is that, these people are so discriminated against, just like you, yet you want to put them down even more? They don't need any "counseling" for their pedophilia anymore than you do for identifying as an otherkin. Unless, of course, they hurt someone.

It’s a pretty obvious troll account.  Seriously, you’re not even trying.  And yes, if you are a pedophile you should be ashamed of who you are.  Just like an alcoholic should be ashamed of their alcoholism.  Shame is the first step in getting help.  And no, pedophiles are not “discriminated against”, they are recognized as dangers to children.  Very different from otherkin.  And yes, they do need counseling for their pedophilia.  Counseling is what prevents them from hurting someone.  But you know all of that, of course, and are simply trolling.  Blocked, and ignored.

The response I got to a message sent to http://hate-help-hotline.tumblr.com/

My point is now the #1 recommendation on their igethate page: http://hate-help-hotline.tumblr.com/igethate

But hey, I’m just an old fogey who doesn’t get how things actually work on tumblr or what would help people… ;-) 

If someone plays in traffic and gets hit by a car, it is not victim blaming to call them an idiot. If someone baits trollers and then gets butthurt when they send nasty messages, telling them to disable anon and not KEEP BAITING THEM is not victim blaming.

swanblood:

Wait, so… saying that trolls are funny until they start sending death threats (which suggests they’re NOT funny if they send death threats, anyway), means you only have your self to blame if someone actually attempts to run you over with a car?

In what universe??

Try *actually* reading what I’ve said.  He only has himself to blame for the continued trolling, *not* for the attempt on his life. (Though he was rather stupid to have given out so much personal information about himself online that allowed people to target him IRL in the first place.)  With regard to the attempt to run him down and the in-person “kill yourself” stuff at his workplace, he should go to the police.  As I’ve said multiple times.  

Reading comprehension: you’re doing it wrong.

I WILL FEED THE TROLLS IF I FUCKING WANT TO. THEY’RE FUNNY, UNTIL THEY GIVE MY DEATH THREATS. THEN THEY WORRY ME.

You know, I keep seeing people complaining about all these anon death-threats they’re getting.

I got one, a few months back.  I hit block, deleted the message, and never commented about it publicly.

I never got another one.

Just saying… 

WOW?! ONE whole MESSAGE! that must be so TERRIBLE, considering the DOZENS upon DOZENS that Karkat is getting!

Well, that’s kind of my point.  I hit block, didn’t respond publicly, and it stopped.  By not feeding the trolls with any kind of public response or attention, I stopped it before reaching the point where I would have gotten dozens of such messages.

*pats* There there, Snow. Remember one of the cardinal rules of internet social networking sites? Don’t feed the trolls.

floofyfeather:

How about we do this.

  • If someone starts waving the oppression flag, don’t say anything. Just block them.
  • If someone says, “I’m (insert obvious troll type here)kin, I’m oppressed and so kawaii desu,” don’t say anything. Just block them.
  • If someone says something along the lines of, “otherkin are so full of shit (insert spewing hate),” don’t say anything. Just block them.
  • If someone posts horrible pictures in the tag, don’t say anything, don’t try to weed it out with cute animals, because it’ll clog up the tag and show up the further down you go anyway. Just block them.

Feeding the trolls sparks arguments that nobody really likes to be in.

So how does this sound?

Like exactly what I’ve been saying.  Repeatedly.

jarandhel:

Actual content posts would also provide spacers.  And by the time you scrolled down to the other posts, missing e would have hid them.  As for telling you who to block, do you really need 20+ posts all telling you to block x-user?

are you SERIOUSLY going to argue with me that YOUR privileged comfort is more important than my MENTAL AND PHYSICAL SAFETY

No.  Apparently you lack reading comprehension.  I’m seriously going to argue that POSTING ACTUAL CONTENT would provide you with the same spacers that cute baby animal pictures do.  Coupled with using the missing-e plugin, this *would* completely prevent you from being triggered either with epilepsy or dead animal images.  And if you really needed “warnings”, it wouldn’t take 20 people repeating the same warning, now would it?

holy shit you’re so ableist I can’t even

Sure, I’m “ableist” for expecting people to deal with their own triggers.  Apparently so were my friends who were molested and were actually triggered by train sets, but didn’t expect people to tag images of them for their benefit.

the more you talk the further you shove your foot into your mouth

quit while you’re ahead

YOU are exactly the kind of otherkin that makes people hate otherkin

Actually I’m pretty sure most people who hate otherkin hate the ones that play oppression olympics, whine about ableism, and generally act completely dysfunctionally.  I’m just the kind of otherkin who makes *you* hate older otherkin.  There’s a difference.

NO. THAT’S NOT HOW IT WORKS. ESPECIALLY WITH TRIGGERING, OR STROBING CONTENT. SOMEONE COULD GO INTO A PANIC ATTACK FROM SEEING A DEAD KITTEN. SOMEONE COULD HAVE A VIOLENT SEIZURE FROM SEEING STROBING IMAGES.

YOU DON’T HAVE SEIZURES. YOU (PROBABLY) DON’T HAVE THE DEAD ANIMAL TRIGGER, AND YOU NEED TO BACK UP.

I AGREE, MAYBE NEXT TIME, INSTEAD OF BABY ANIMALS, POST QUOTES, BUT DON’T SIT HERE AND TELL US WHAT TO DO AFTER WE SAVED A LOT OF BEINGS FROM BEING TRIGGERED OR HAVE A VIOLENT SEIZURE AND GET PERMANENT BRAIN DAMAGE.

I’d think people with serious problems with epilepsy would be smart enough to turn animated gifs off in their browsers of choice.  So I find it very unlikely that you “saved” anyone from violent seizures or permanent brain damage. 

As for “saving” people from being triggered by seeing a dead kitten, I sure hope you’re there to shelter them whenever they’re riding in a car or bus and there’s a dead animal on the side of the road.  You’ve got your work cut out for you, making the world safe for others triggers.  Especially since not all triggers have to be negative or obvious.  Some friends of mine (a multiple system) were triggered by model train sets because they’d been molested underneath a table with one.  It’s entirely possible that there are people who are triggered by cute baby animals due to a similar association.

carcino-fucking-geneticist:

DON’T WARN BEINGS ABOUT THEM?

WHAT THE FUCK, THAT IS THE MOST IDIOTIC THING. IF WE DON’T WARN ANYONE ABOUT THEM, HOW WILL THEY KNOW TO BLOCK THEM???

The same way you did.  They will *see* the trolling posts, and they will be smart enough to block them.  They don’t need you to be all paternal/maternal and tell them who to block in order to stay safe.
