Rant abt art/writing issues under the cut
rant abt kink under the cut
The whole “otherkin” movement on tumblr is un-fucking-real.
If you want to say you’re a plant or a fictional character, idgaf. But if you’re going to make up reasons why you’re somehow oppressed because of this, you’re fucking ridiculous. People naming their kids after flowers, giving them nature names, is not cultural appropriation. You don’t fucking own the earth because you believe you’re a plant.
Cultural appropriation is a real thing that happens because real people bastardize a culture and strip elements of that culture of its historical significance, there are actual societal consequences. Plants have not had a history of being shamed for being plants.
Cosplay and fursuits are not cultural appropriation of people who claim to actually be fictional characters. People are allowed to create and share in their love of a character or a series. It’s not cultural appropriation because you claim you own it. Because guess what, you don’t. You don’t own it. You’re not the writer. It didn’t come from you.
You can’t just make up a movement with zero basis in society. PoC, queer people, etc, are dehumanized on a large scale every fucking day and denied basic human rights. I was bullied in high school for being just an awkward dork weirdo but that does not make me oppressed based on interpersonal experiences.
