Bawwing? Thats a new one to me.
I /really/ dont feel like getting caught up in an otherkin V therian debate, I dont know much of anything about the history of these groups, and I dont want to know for a reason, its non of my concern. I know there is a shit-ton of bad blood between the three groups, and I honestly dont want to be involved in it, I certainly see your point.
Most of the otherkin I know, and regularly hang out with, are also furries, and are some of the most friendly and down-to-earth people I know. But I have met many who I feel bring needless problems down on the rest of us.
Its just how I see them, because of the traits we have in common, our affinity for animals for example, if Im wrong, fair enough.
Oh I have seen that happen, its the reason I dont frequent those sites, you end up with the admins siding with "the whole pack of otherkin" and accusing you of starting drama. But I have had the same kind of anti-otherkin issues with some furries that (along with my misanthropic and deeply cynical nature) fueled my anti-fur complex for months.
All I can say really is, get to know me before you judge me personally
Sorry to jump in to you two's conversation...but when one group poses a group, otherkin, therian or furry in another light, it's really hard to change one's negative opinion because of their encounters.
