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

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.

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.
