But more seriously, this article shouldn't exist. "Trolls troll other trolls on the internet." Big whoop. No-one needs to have this spelled out for them.

Maybe the problem's the fact that you're taking it seriously, bruh.

I thought it was funny. I love Kanye and I know who PM is, which is what made it funny to me.

I don't think it "shouldn't exist." If that's your criteria, things might not be very fun for you.

Or at the very least you could just ignore it and move on.

Whatever floats your boat, pinkledink. And my preferred pronouns are bro/bre/bruhself.

God, I kind of want to include that on my tumblr.

"I'm a 16 year old otherkin Bro. My preferred pronouns are bro/bre/bruhself."

Heh, that would be funny. I actually stole it from a copypasta about being a helicopter-otherkin. It was something like chop/chip/bladeself.

Yeah, it's kind of funny but also a cheap shot.

Joking about otherkin in general, or specifically my earlier joke?

swedishbadgergirl  ·  1918 days ago  ·  link  ·  

Otherkin, because it is usually very young teenagers and them just realizing that they can be whatever they want.

I mean wouldn't you want to be a dragon?

I suppose. I don't really have much sympathy for otherkin. I feel like they take away a bit from transgendered people. It makes it too easy to say "These people want to become animals. Should we let that happen, too?" I guess making fun of them doesn't really help.

swedishbadgergirl  ·  1918 days ago  ·  link  ·  

But that is what other people say. You can't say that those young little teens are responsible for what people say about them

I...suppose? I'm not sure what your experiences have been, but I've mostly seen older people claiming these things. I don't really see where age much comes into it past about 10.

Well, would you be able to defend every stupid thing you said at 13? Because tumblr is the place for stupid late night thoughts for these people.

At 13 I was a communist, so no. It feeds right back into my dislike of LGBT piggybackers. No matter what their motives might be, it still damages any internet discussion on LGBT topics.

You can dislike them all you want, I do sometimes to - but remember - if you make fun of them you are making fun of a middle schooler. Which is both kind of mean and also WAY to easy.

I guess we can agree on that.
