But I have a completely legitimate journal to write with lots of questions.
You guys all know what Otaku's/Otherkin are, right?
People who believe that they're REALLY just an animal or a video game/movie/book/anime character on the inside.
That they're in the wrong body.
Oftentimes they're given slack for thinking that they're a wolf/Mario/Naruto reincarnated, because, what the hell... You're human!
But how is this really any different than Transgender/Genderqueers?
I'd like to reiterate that I support and accept both of you guys, but I'm just going to write to ask opinions. I mean not to offend anyone here.
A lot of argument to these people is that there's no possible way they could be reincarnated wolves/characters, since they first had to be exposed to them to know what they were like, and to attatch to it.
I ask you: Is this related to gender identitiy?
Had we, as humans, grown up not even knowing the difference between bodies (Pretend we all look asexual and the genitals are hidden from view always), would we all be straight still? Bisexual? If we can't see the sex of anyone, would Transgenders still feel wrong about their body? Would Genderqueers want to be "seperate" genders?
If you're not exposed to anything different, would you be technically forced to accept your body? Or would you still feel odd?
And why is it okay to bash on Otaku's/Otherkin for feeling like they aren't the same inside, when it's OH SO WRONG to not understand or believe that TG and GQ don't have legitimate problems?
In the end of the day, what causes that dysphoria? Is it really something you're born with, or is it exposure? I'm sure for Otherkin/Otaku's, you'd say "Well you think you're a VULCAN inside!? Of course that's exposure!", but how is that really any different?
I had good news but I'm too lazy and tired. Still bleeding. Took a five hour nap today and I'm still dog tired. My back hurts like hell. My muscles need massaging.
Accidentally bra-flashed my orchestra teacher yesterday. I'm like 80% sure he's gay, and I feel terrible.
