30 Days of Otherkin: Kintype(s): What’s it like to be your kintype?

My brain is torn between two answers here. The first is, “annoying”. The second is, “I do not know, what is it like to be anyone or anything?”.

I do not know what it is like to be quote unquote normal. Even if you were to remove the fact that I am otherkin (and pagan – they are linked for me) out of the picture, I am still pretty far from average. I am genderfluid, so my sense of gender identity kind of exists on a sliding scale. I am pansexual, so a person’s biological sex and gender identity are of no import when it comes to attraction. I am demisexual, so I do not understand attraction based on looks at all (the expression “eye candy” just gets a perplexed look out of me). I am polyamorous, which means the concept of monogamy is also lost on me. My height is below average, my weight is above average, my skin may be white but I am legally a Native American. I am neuroatypical in several different ways, and by this point you hopefully get the picture.

So, I do not know what it is like to be anyone or anything but me. This extends to the kintype thing. So I am not sure how to explain what it is like, since I cannot do so by comparison. Helpful entry, no? :p
