What are otherkin?


Otherkin are people who believe rightly or wrongly that the sort of people they are is not the human type. If anyone ever hit on you at a con claiming to actually be a high elf in exile from faerie, then you’ve met an otherkin. The Otherkin site is a good resource for the variety of explanations for how people would come to the conclusion that they were sidhe or bastet or whathaveyou. The site actually manages to come across as more of a resource than something pro or con the whole otherkin philosophy or lifestyle. I’m sure we’ve all felt we did not truly belong in our own skins at one time or another.
