(Cross-posting from my blog but I think it deserves to go here too.) I guess I should start off by saying I don’t know my species. I don’t specifically identify with the otherkin community at this stage, but I know I am, in some way, not human. And I feel that it is intrinsically linked to my gender identity. I’m genderfluid, so my gender changes a lot, but most of the time I’m too blurred to tell what gender I am at that specific point in time. As for my species, I have a feeling that it changes depending on gender, which makes the previous statement a complication in trying to figure it out. I think of myself as a cat a lot. I definitely have some connection to cats, and I’m now sure I have cat ears, at least some of the time. But I also think of myself as human sometimes, which, at this stage, I believe correlates to the times I’m most male, though I still need to explore that. And often when I’m agender, I think of myself as an alien. Hairless and sexless. So it’s all rather complicated, but there is definitely some link between my gender identity and my species identity.
