I AM otherkin, so my opinion is this: otherkin are valid, and we are NOT delusional! We DON'T need to get help!

I'm genuinely concerned for them. I want to try to help them, because it's dangerous to keep living in a fantasy.

Oh my gosh, I'm SICK of hearing about them! They're delusional and they need to get help! They're all "special snowflakes"!

Personally, yeah...most are special snowflakes or are living in a fantasy. It sounds harsh, but just look at the otherkin currently. Most identify as wolves, dragons, elves, fictional characters, etc. That...sounds like a whole lot of attention seeking. Why not a frog, or that guy that was on the screen for three seconds, or a fly? No one has "kin" with that See More▼

Somebody get them some help
You can have personality traits of an animal, but that doesn’t change the fact that you are a human

Otherkin KNOW that they're human. They just feel like they were an animal/mythical creature in a past life.

I know. Kelly also believes she has the SOUL of a cat.
Requirements For Considering Yourself Otherkin:
-Believing you were that animal/creature in a past life
-Believing you have the soul of that animal
-Wanting to do/surround yourself with things that remind you of that animal

Okay but that’s just having the behavior and/or personality traits for Kelly’s case
I like to lay down in sunny spots too, but it doesn’t mean I’m a Dogkin

Technically, we're not all otherkin. Otherkin don't just believe that they're an animal reincarnated, they act on that.
For example, Kelly is catkin. She wants to be a cat, so she does things to make her feel like she's a cat again. Sometimes, she lies on the floor in a sunbeam. She also likes to make catnip tea.

So basically we are all otherkin because according to Hindu’s view on reincarnation, Animals reincarnate into humans of they’ve been good

1. Yeah, I know. Otherkin believe that they are a certain animal reincarnated as a human.
2. They were most likely trolls. If they weren't, then they probably didn't mean that they physically are that animal; they probably meant that their SOUL is that animal.

Well, that’s just reincarnation
All my other encounters with other kin involve them saying that they ARE that animal, rather than WERE
