I'm not sure where this should go so I apologize if this isn't the correct spot. I often go on tumblr just for silly little gifs and the like, but recently I have begun to just go through the 'otherkin' tag to have a peak. I get curious, it happens. Recently the community has been freaking out about a video that The Amazing Athiest has made and have; 1) sent him so many asks, trying to defend themselves, that he has had to close his inbox 2) effectively gone into hiding and called him horribly ableist when it comes to the subject matter. have gotten mad countless times at otherkin, within the site, who point out to everyone why people make fun of the community and that they should not be mad that they have pretty much been called out. Apparently the whole "think of the children" argument is being flung around, saying that older members MUST help the younger ones defend themselves if they are to be targeted so to speak. Originally after the first otherkin related video this man has made there wasn't going to be much more about it, however with the way the community has recoiled on itself he has said there will definitely be a follow up. I'm just wondering what everyone feels about this whole thing. I am still learning about this whole thing myself since literally just this morning is when I found out about the whole thing. I apologize if this is a mish-mosh, but hopefully those who know about this can understand what I am referencing.
