These days, after trawling through websites that are stimulating for the mind such as DeviantArt and Tumblr I noted the existence of various communities of so called "Therians" or "Otherking". For some reason, they appear to be deluded so as to believe that they are another person/species/etc for some strange reason.
A number claim of multiple personalities, which seems somewhat dubious as explained by this gentleman here.
I found it strange to believe that in many cases, some persons believe themselves to be fictional entities invented by the mind, drawing rather interesting pictures of their so called "Dysphoria".
Now this would be rather harmless. Most of these people don't seem to be causing many problems. Unfortuately, they actually are.
Firstly, they are stealing terms from actual groups who have suffered cases of repression such as LGTBQ communities, people with mental disorders and also various ethnic minorites. They seem to do this in a poor attempt to lend credibility to their own self diagnosed issues.
Secondly, it is giving weight and support to nonexistant bullshit issues, wasting the time of SJ groups who have to sift through idiots talking about phantom limbs. (This medically being extremely rare)
I myself think that it is nonsense, with people being deluded into wanting to be fictional character or a dragon(Rrerr) because they are either bored or fools. It is perfectly fine to roleplay it out, even buying things and going to cosplays or the such is fine as well.
What is bullshit however, is when they start taking it beyond a hobby and being insanely deluded. I wish for others thoughts on this.
