arethinn: glowing green spiral (Default)
[personal profile] arethinn in [community profile] otherkin
As the subject line says, just some food for thought... a quote from a post from someone I follow on Tumblr.
What is the relationship between otherkin and roleplaying? Are otherkin just roleplayers?

As an otherkin I'm obviously going to ultimately say 'No'. However, this post will explore the finer details of the connection made between otherkin and roleplaying, in an effort to try and fully explain why otherkin are not all just a bunch of full-time roleplayers.

My brief comment: Of course I agree otherkin (generally) are not "just" roleplaying as elves, dragons, or whatever, despite what outsiders might often accuse us of "obviously" doing. However, I do think there can be value in roleplay as a tool for exploring e.g. a specific past/other life, or what values and/or actions you think express your "other" nature or mind, especially if you're new on the scene (so to speak).
