Today, governments around the world protect vulnerable groups, or minorities, from discrimination and prejudice by giving them extra rights and helping them through times of hate and despair. Yet one group--the otherkins--is conspiciously missing from the list of protected minorities. Otherkin get the same discrimination and are harmed by the same prejudice as African-Americans and womyn. Thus, we should receive the same minority rights that they do.

Otherkin are often laughed at, bullied, and discriminated against. When a potential employer hears the truth that you are really a wolf in a human body, they just laugh it off as nonsense and refuse to hire you. I think that the discrimination against us is real.

Otherkins aren't crazy, insane, or deluded. We are otherkin because we are enlightened. Otherkins are real. When I don't have my tail on, I feel like something's missing.

I am a Half-Wolf Half-Dragon kin. Thank you for making this topic. Otherkin should not be looked down on. The government is being horrifically neglectful to our identities. This is part of who we are and if people can't accept this then they don't deserve us.......... I think I lost some brain cells just writing this...............

Also finally an otherkin topic. The laughs we will have!

Also welcome to DDO!

Actually, "womyn" is an alternate spelling used by some hardcore feminists.

Does this mean that people who sexually identify as Apache Helicopters should be treated as a minority as well?

Otherkin and all those weird new terms tumblr people came up with are mentally ill and should be thrown into gas chambers for being worthless inferior specimen.
