@RustyFapwagon, All this stuff makes my head hurt, like wtf.
@RustyFapwagon, and also a Furrie apparently
@RustyFapwagon, Hey im tri-toaster/ pantoastist and I find that offensive.
@RustyFapwagon, I feel like he will soon be in a "relationship" with his mother. That's what the scene feels like to me.
Did anyone else think this was gonna be a Star Wars reference and then get completely disappointed?
@LyleKewis, very yes
God d*mmit Luke, you couldn't just be normal and kiss your sister
@homeless guy, "I fücked my sister, and she said I was better than paw, and I said "no way! That's what maw said!"
I'm Firedash a trigender pyro fox from the forest planet.
@Anime Theorist, *squeaks*
So, Lucy🌟Nyan can be attracted to anyone of any gender, falls in love because of personality, and... Thinks s/he's a wolf. The first two I can deal with being labels for little things about a person, but I have yet to decide what I feel about someone chewing a Nylabone in their spare time.
@Fantabulous Toaster, a friend of mine is a dragonkin, she's absolutely insane. I don't trust most ___kin people. Just sayin
@ChocoboPizzacat, I'm cool with people thinking 'hey it'd be nice to be a wolf' or 'I feel a bit Wolfy' or 'I'm a furry' but the whole otherkin thing is still quite strange to me. Do otherkin believe they were an animal (fictional or real) in a past life or.. Are they actually a dragon hiding in a skellington?
@Fantabulous Toaster, They talk about their spirit being a dragons and how they should be a dragon but somehow they're stuck in a human body. I think it varies person to person though.
@Fantabulous Toaster, Its very metaphysical on a very base, retarded level. Its a fantasy that people are starting to take as fact, the same way children play pretend, but with a dash of mental illness tossed in and add 10 years. Hearing about planet kin and astral limbs, a man can only take so much.
@RockDaHouse690, I watched several videos about it a while back and I remember fictionkin. They think they're book characters. Usually the girlfriends of hot main characters...
@ChocoboPizzacat, ohh. I did see someone getting really pissy about how they couldn't put their gender as 'wolf' on an exam paper once, but I didn't realise it was otherkin at the time. Still, wolf is not a gender- it is a species.
@Fantabulous Toaster, whoa don't let one of them hear you say that. They might try to bite you and you don't know where that mouth has been.
@ChocoboPizzacat, I'd guess it's been in a bag of Milk Bones mixed with Cheetos but there are other options too. :p
@ChocoboPizzacat, a dragon... Stuck in a human body? *gasp!* THE MAIN CHARACTER IN SKYRIM IS A DRAGONKIN!
@Fantabulous Toaster, they literally believe that they are or at least they say that they so when it becomes to inconvenient they'll act normal again
@RockDaHouse690, yah I'm all for pretend but there is a certain point that is unacceptable
"Ew, don't get your gender fluid on me!"
Sigh. Another tumblr gender
But cats go nyan, not wolves
I heard that Luke's nephew has an eight pack
@Fun Haus, holy shjt... Dude, great channel!
@Fun Haus, he's shredded!
I don't really see a problem with letting kids express themselves and explore their identities. Kid's 15. They'll grow out of the illegitimate ones eventually.
@Ruupasya, I think you're right. I could be wrong, but I'm thinking that this kind of things wasn't around before the internet boom we are caught in right now (as a historical standpoint). I can see internet-people growing out of their fads all the time, including this one. I don't imagine a 70 year old woman would be cooped up in a retirement home pretending she's a dog. When arthritis sets in and they can no longer tap a keyboard, otherkin will just phase out.
@Virgin Alert, I agree. And similar stuff was around when I was that age, the Internet was just smaller then and it was mostly confined to middle and high schools, not the entire world. (I'm not even that old lol, I'm 22). I'm sure if 15yo me has posted stuff online, it'd be completely ridiculous. This is normal development. It's only concerning when people make it to their late 20s and still believe their a fox or something (which does happen).
I'll take a quite furry over an otherkin any day at least ferries might keep it to themselvs
Am I the only one who thinks each of the upper half characters looks like a female?
@63WdntnHS, I honestly thought the kid was female and didn't even see the name Luke until you pointed that out.
@63WdntnHS, looks female??!!!????!???!? *TRIGGERED*
The thing that is hard about being a parent is that your primary goal should be to let your child be who they want to be and be happy. Of course, if your kid is being an ass, don't let them do that, but if your kid seriously believes they are a wolf, as a parent you need to love them and support them... And you can pray and hope all you want that it's just a phase
@Jonnasty, or you can make them stop thinking they are a fvcking wolf
@Jonnasty, I agree. Seems like a lot of parents forget that their child's life is not theirs. People need to remember that becoming a parents means you're going to have a kid that could end up being anything, and a good parents sticks by their child's side no matter what. (You know except when they're asses and such.)
@Keithy, a good parent raises their kids to be rational humans, not idiots.
@Jonnasty, my primary goal is that my children be good people. Happiness is important too, but secondary.
@Jonnasty, I disagree, I believe a parent's primary goal is to guide their child and keep pushing them to achieve greatness.
@Jonnasty, that sounds all nice and well but parents are actually suppose to guide their children and help them to not live a destructive life. You wouldn't let your kid drink poison from under the sink and you shouldn't let them keep thinking their a wolf, thats not constructive. If a kid rebels then a kid rebels but you don't have to ever accept it. I think people nowadays have a different understanding of what love is.
@Hellabaloo, imagine if you parent forced you to do something you didn't want to just because they thought it would be good for you? I agree that you should push your kid. But you have to push your kid in the direction they want to go, or you will make no progress.
@Toad, I guess that's ok? I'm not really sure if I agree with you wanting your child to be a good person rather than happy. I feel that you should raise your child in such a way that being happy and being a good person are met without compromise for the other. And nothing says the fictional kid in this comic can't be a good person just because they are very weird.
@Cpzombie, lol, sorry, I forgot that if someone believes in something you don't, they are irrational, and therefore idiots. Thanks for reminding me, though.
@Snarfel Burger, we all have different ideas on how to be a good parent, and that is great because diversity drives ingenuity. Don't equate being weird to drinking poison though, that is not exactly equatable, ha.
@Jonnasty, if they think they are a wolf, there is obviously something wrong with them, and the parent should set them straight.
@Jonnasty, Do you have children? If you dont, then you are solely speaking from the perspective of a child (as in, child of your parents, not a childlike manner.) Wolf people won't make it far if they continue to believe they are wolves into adulthood. Imagine someone who identifies as a wolf trying to close a deal for a big company or something. You gotta do your best to make sure your child, at the very least, has the ability to keep their head above water after they move out, and letting children ride fantasies into adulthood will not let them do that.
@Jonnasty, my metaphor was to show an extreme example as to why a parent should discourage destructive behavior at the expense of showing "acceptance" to their child. Nowhere has anyone mentioned forcing their kid to do anything, but you don't have to condone or tolerate all behaviors. Pyvin put my thoughts into words better, our fictional "wolf" child is not going to live a happy life if he even makes it into adulthood.
@Jonnasty, Ignore these people who are criticizing yoir parenting style and downvoting your comments. This community would have accepted that opinion You seem like you are a goo person who is gonna be a good parent.
@Jonnasty, *would have accepted your opinion a year ago.
@Keithy, Some people see their kids as property. I find it funny that the people who are controlling of their parents are also the ones that complain that the US isn't free enough. That's called hypocrisy.
@Tentacle Monster, It's people like you that have children that end up failing.
@Cpzombie, Listen kid, you're obviously not old enough to make the tough decisions of parenting, so why don't you run alone and play COD. Let the adults take on the responsibilities and you can just think about how you are gonna raise a kid who shoots up a school.
@Tentacle Monster, Ah yes, raising a child to be a responsible adult means that they will shoot up a school. Your logic is just so amazing!
@Cpzombie, It's not my logic. Just read the studies given on raising children through different environments. Oh my bad you dont listen to logic or reason, so I'm ending this conversation.
@Tentacle Monster, shut the fvck up. A kid like that won't make it far in life and will probably be living with his mom well into his 30s. It's not entirely the parents fault if a child is like this, but they are partly to blame. Their environment has a lot to do with it. If you let your kid browse tumblr all day, everyday, and he believes the nonsense there, he might end up this way. And yes that is a bad thing because it just makes his life harder.
@Raki Zaki, So instead of responding to me with an intellectual response, you tell me to shut the fvck up. By the way, thanks for downvoting my comments, then looking at my account and liking some of my pics. It's better for this phase to play out so that he can learn from it. It is damaging to a teen's mind if they can not let them express themselves. My cousin went through something somewhat similar when she was 14 and now she's in grad school at stanford. It's true that if this person did this his entire life, he would be ridiculed a lot like what you are doing, but it's better to let it play out otherwise he might have even worse mental problems. We live in the US where many weird things like this happen and they are free to do it. If you do not agree with it, then don't pay attention to it. If you disagree with me on that then I'm afraid I will no longer be having a conversation with you.
@Tentacle Monster, i think you misunderstand what most of us are saying. We're not advocating being a controlling parent, obviously that never helped kids but we're trying to say how important it is to try to set your kid on the right path and to show them love and guidance. Sense you brought up school shootings though, they have actually been on the rise. They usually are committed by people closer to our generation who grew up with little structure and very uninvolved parents. But most of our grandparents raised children with healthy restrictions, firm hands, and soft hearts and kids were more respectful for it and happier adults for it. We both want the same thing for our kids but go about it differently. I'm sure all these people want the best for their children.
@Snarfel Burger, You definately misunderstood what i said. You and me seem to have a similar opinion on this matter. I don't really see why downvoted me. I'm not misunderstanding everyone. Some of these people think it's okay to reject any hobby that a kid has. You need to find a good balance. If you aren't strict enough, they will be lazy people who don't really accomplish much. If you are too strict, then they will end up sociopaths that end up doing terrible things to others.
@Tentacle Monster, I did have and intellectual response. I just told you to shut up first. I also looked at your profile by accident and liked your attack on Titan pics, so what? It's not a big deal that I disagree with your comments but like the pictures you uploaded in the past. However, without structured parenting and discipline these kids might not grow out of this stuff. Discipline as in the training and obeying and not just punishment.
@Tentacle Monster, agreed! That's the timeless struggle of being a parent, finding that elusive balance. However, in this example we are talking about this fictional child who thinks they're a wolf. That's not a "hobby" that's just wrong and needs to be corrected quick, haha. Sounds like he's got a screw lose.
@Snarfel Burger, Just because you see it as wrong doesn't mean you should stop supporting them. I know this is going to sound weird, but any behavior that a person does can seem strange from someone's point of view. It's true that people who go with the flow of society are the people that are successful, but a teen's mind is fragile. I think that was the point that Jonnasty and Keithy were making above. Also if this was a sexual thing and he was doing this in private, then there shouldn't be any controversy to it. There are many weird fetishes that happen behind closed doors. By the way, the only reason I said that stuff to Cpzombie is because he tries to start an argument with me about anything I say. He is always downvoting my comments. He is just a teen troll who has nothing better to do than argue on the internet.
@Tentacle Monster, i'm sorry you have to deal with that kind of stuff, that can get really annoying. My rebuttal on the point you made however, would be that we let people go through so much suffering and struggling for the sake of tolerance. I know its an unpopular opinion, some behaviors are taboo for a reason, its because they are unhealthy. I'm not just talking about it hurting success in life, i'm talking about actual mental resilience and perceptions of ourselves and the world. Parents used to try to keep their kids from looking at pornography, but society has pushed back on that old taboo to point out that it is "normal" and "everyone does it" and "no one is actually harmed by it". Well science is actually starting to compare pornography to drugs and the things it does to your brain after constant use. You become desensitized and start making fantasies realities. Now obviously not all who looks at porn ends up addicted, but it does have unhealthy affects mentally and physically.
@Snarfel Burger, research is showing a high suicide rate among the transgendered community. Most of the suicide victims are not people who weren't given support or kicked out of their house. Most of them are transgendered people who made the "switch" or accepted they were born in the wrong body and they had a very loving support group surrounding them. It was due to the fact that the identity struggle doesn't just magically end once they've accepted their new identity. They still go back and forth trying know what they are and never get actual help for their struggle, they just get "acceptance". I'm not condoning intolerance, condemning someone who is struggling like that can be very harmful, but so can encouraging the struggle.
@Snarfel Burger, Everything you said was true although I feel that you are referring to rare cases of when those things are unhealthy. The real reason I commented in the first place is because people are so cynical to other people's lives, even when their actions have absolutely no effect on them. You can have your fun jokes, but when they really start to become preachy, it's annoying. I really wish we lived in a world where you could do whatever you want as long as it does not have a negative effect on other people. This is unrealistic of course, but I think it's fun to think about.
@Tentacle Monster, I don't start arguments with everything, only the things I disagree with.
@Jonnasty, it was because my parents pushed me in a direction I didn't want to go that I am who I am today. I resented and rebelled at the time but now I see the benefit. In fact, I wish they had pushed in more aspects especially relating to schooling, I might have ended up in a better job if they had. Plus, if my parents fostered my aspirations from when I was a child, right now I'd be a velociraptor. Not a real one of course, just a weirdo running around biting and scratching people.
As a 15 year old myself, I'm glad "people" like that don't go to my school.
HAHAHA LOOK AT THE UPLOADERS NAME oh wait
Look at all the sex shaming comments. This community has turned out so well. (sarcasm)
@Tentacle Monster, ?
I have mixed feelings. She got a disappointment of a son or it or whatever that was. But you gotta admit she was a good mother.
The look on the mom's face is great.
It's not a phase, mom!
