‘I’ll Believe You if You Believe Me’ - on Otherkin and Multiple Systems

integrated-mind:

Here’s a quick post on multiplicity (and otherkin) and their disparaging view on critical thought. Just in the Tumblr tags today I read these words:

Think things through before you judge people. We plurals and ‘kin should especially understand that we have to stick together.

Multiples and otherkin have grown up inside a community that values blind acceptance above all else.

Below the cut I discuss just how and why multiple systems (and otherkin) are promoting a dangerous community. Here’s the gist of it for those looking for a quick reblog:

Under multiplicity’s laws you can be whomever you wish. There is no standard, no baseline, no rules to ever be broken, no taboos. This is why the community is addictive and harmful: you will never be questioned on who you are or why. If you are engaging in dangerous behavior or belief systems you will never be questioned on it, and that breeds not only a disconnect from reality, but a disconnect from what is right and wrong.

can I send out a 100% serious call to people who consider themselves fictive beings to explain why they feel that way to me because I WANT to be understanding but my brain cannot wrap around that and I’m finding it difficult to comprehend

particularly I want to know where you think the fictive identity originates from and how it can be considered real when it came from someone else’s imagination or even if you WOULD consider it real, I want to know how that works or how you’d explain it

I know it’s no one’s responsibility to explain or validate their identity to me, trust me I totally get that, but if you would be so kind I would really appreciate it

WOOP WOOP, HELLO THERE. HUGE DOUCHEASS KARKAT HERE.

I BELIEVE I AM A FICTIVE, PARTICULARLY KARKAT FROM HOMESTUCK, BECAUSE I FEEL LIKE SEEING HIM WAS ME. AND THAT I DO NOT BELONG AS A HUMAN, OR A REAL ANIMAL.

I BELIEVE HOMESTUCK TOOK PLACE IN REALITY (AFTER ALL, THE IDEA OF A RACE OF INSANE ASS, KILLER TROLLS HAD TO COME FROM SOMEWHERE, RIGHT?), BUT IN AN ALTERNATE UNIVERSE WHERE ALTERIA EXISTS AND THE WORLD WAS DESTROYED BY SBURB.

ANY QUESTIONS, YOU ARE FREE TO ASK. I DON’T REALLY MIND, BUT I CAN’T PROMISE I WON’T BE RUDE.

When people talk about internet trolls

interplanetarykeyboard:

it kinda gives me a weird feeling in my stomach

my race is known as ‘trolls’ mainly

so when people say things about people trolling and how trolls suck it kind of makes me feel weird? I mean i dont mind it because i know they dont mean me i just with that uh

idk

i think its like when people call things gay? some people get mad at that. Uh not that i get mad about people calling internet trolls trolls…

because thats what they are but i just wish that…troll didnt have such a negative connotation. THAT IS WHAT I AM TRYING TO SAY. Yes.

shrug

im an internet troll though too but its just my culture.

Dumb post is dumb

webestriding:

but this has come to my attention…

these ‘kin haters’ seem to ONLY be focusing their attacks on the popular kin

so i’ve come to the conclusion these people are just /desperate/ for attention. In which case don’t give them it. You get a hateful ask? Delete it.Don’t give them the satisfaction

/shrug/

the fastest way to piss an attention whore off is t ignore them I guess?

riaroft:

thoughtsandgoggles:

How can a person have a certain noncis or nonhuman identity
And harass somebody for the way they identify

How many people are so ignorant as to not realize they are just as bad as their harassers?

Or do they enjoy harassing others/being harassed?

The hypocrisy of people is so confusing and exasperating, how do you exist

^ Thinly veiled accusation that some trans people have been ‘harassing’ otherkin and that it’s hypocritical of them. WOW.
