Uh oh, ranting ahead
This is about how my gender identity interacts with my kintype. [[MORE]] I’m going to start by saying that I just don’t really understand human ideas about gender. Despite having been raised as a human in a human society, I still just don’t get it on an emotional level; my understanding is a lot more theoretical. I guess for most non-kin who aren’t hateful towards...
mytimelordheartbeatsfordwarves: I wonder if maybe my not-Hobbitish traits should be chalked up to my human form and my extended time trying to convince myself I’m human. Yeah, this is exactly how I feel about it. I do often feel ‘half jotun/half human’, but I know that it’s the result of not really belonging to either group and feeling trapped between the two. My physical...
lesliebones asked: I was just thinking, after seeing your (main blog) post on jotnar with names, in marvel at least, have you thought about what your jotunn name would be? Or about giving your jotunn kin identity a name? Not sure if this is a weird question, though now I'm starting to think it is, but I was intrigued.
But what would you *want* to be?
amaraelessera: swanblood: salfarro: So, the deal with being otherkin is that you are what you are because that’s what you are. Although it may *seem* like otherkin are just delusional roleplayers that want to be cool things, that’s not how it works, although of course many otherkin if not most do like their otherkin identities. I know I’ve asked this question before but I didn’t get a lot...
lesliebones asked: Ah, yup, I see exactly what you're saying. But when I was thinking of fictionkin, I was thinking of things that were purely created out of fiction that don't necessarily exist in mythologies, or are radically different from pre-existing versions. I think whether they define themselves as mythkin or fictionkin just depends on what they feel comfortable with. Like I don't identify...
So what is everyone's opinion about GodKin?
lokis-scarred-lips: I think they exist, though I don't believe they're an actual incarnation of a God that's been around forever. And they don't deserve worship. As I identify as a jotunn, I'm technically Godkin, but I have no desire to be worshipped. They can identify as a God, but they can't go around calling themselves Thor. There's only one Thor, same as for the other Gods.
jotunnqueers-kinblog: I don't think that they can exist. I don't see my identity as a jotunn as the same as me identifying as a god because jotnar as a group aren't gods, since they don't ask for humans to worship them. The exceptions are those such as Skadi who were integrated into the aesir, but all of those are known and specific named beings. I don't think that you could identify as one of the aesir, for example, because they're all accounted for. I understand that there are fictives, who are different to otherkin as they identify as specific fictional characters or people, often as part of a multiple system. However, I think if you were going to start identifying as the god Odin, say, that would be... problematic. In what way would they be Odin? I can understand 'channeling' a specific deity or allowing them to possess you but not actually being them, that makes very little sense to me and even stikes me as somewhat offensive. But, I think that you could (and obviously I do) identify as a member of the jotnar or the vanir in the same way as you could identify as an elf or a dwarf or whatnot. They're all different races of powerful beings, but not gods.
lesliebones: jotunnqueer: lesliebones: jotunnqueer: but the whole Hoenir debate does raise some interesting questions tbh such as at which point do two separate deities with the same origin become separate and can it even work that way? I mean, if most of the surviving lore describes them as two separate figures, is that now… correct? because what else can we as modern heathens rely...
iaafl asked: If such a thing is true about Jotnar and sexuality and gender, this could be the source of some of your dysphoria! Just an idea, sorry if I'm being rude or making poor assumptions.
Of Lokis, Jotun sexuality and fanon
boomshotwithheadcanon: If fanon holds true, Loki’s sexuality can be easily justified. You see, if it holds true, then he isn’t technically ‘gay’ or any other words you can come up with him and all the fangirls have been getting it right when they write thorki, frostiron or stoki fics. If the Jotun are a race that has none of what everyone else calls females, regardless, he would be programmed...
thorrason asked: I'd like to suggest hrefnukjöt - minke whale - in response to your food post. It's fucking unbelievable. And re: cooking, it's normally served bloody rare anyway. There's an Icelandic company, can't remember the name right now, that sells hrefna steaks pre-marinated in honey that are the best thing I've ever put in my face. And they're like 95% protein or...
childofthefoxes asked: Hey! I like your food post. I'm still in the middle of reading it, but I went back and tagged the two sushi posts kinfood has with 'hrimthurskin' for you! It would be the last two posts in that tag. I worry about posting more because it could potentially make people sick if they tried to make it and didn't know what they were doing though. I go back and forth XD
Food? (Tw: mentions of blood and cannibalism)
Today I’ve been thinking about what my kintype would eat. Now, I’m not a fussy eater in the slightest; I’ll eat just about anything put in front of me. However, my favourite foods are meat and fish. I feel that in a land of ice, an almost carnivorous diet would probably be necessary for survival, so this makes sense to me. Now, nobody likes their meat overcooked, but I would...
otherkin, i do not understand
swanblood: rune-wings: hey, if you are otherkin, you know what kind of animal you are you feel wings/horns/tails, you feel like howling/screeching/vocalizing but i do NOT UNDERSTAND CONCEPT OF KINFOOD for the following reason: if you know what kin type you are, then you must feel like that animal (non-mythical of course) and as that animal, yet in human body, would you not attempt to...
void-symphony: (post disclaimer: i’m not saying it is this, necessarily, for me, or anyone; or if it is, that it’s the whole of it (though there’s nothing wrong if if it is); it’s just a thought; it kind of leads back to when one of the things i listed was “society”; this could also probably be worded better or something, but; anyhow…) when you are someone who [because you are in a group...
Recently I’ve taken to buying big pieces of selenite to decorate my room with. It’s pretty cheap and I think that it looks like ice. Home sweet home?
Jotun biology →
I found this interesting blog earlier and I’m reading through it now. This is basically a set of someone’s headcanons about Jotun biology based on how the Jotnar are presented in Marvel’s ‘Thor’ movie. I can’t speak for other members of my kintype (not least because I’ve never come across any others), but I thoroughly enjoyed the portrayal of Jotnar in...
lokabrenna replied to your post: SO GUYS wait I guess i never thought about what kind of otherkin you would be, when I saw you were jotunnkin I was like “what that doesn’t count that’s like being humankin” but idk I guess it’s because I’m Loki’s child so it’s not weird to me? Hahaha, I find it amusing when people ask what my kintype is because of my url. Hiding in plain sight there I guess? But...
I can’t help but feel that ‘heart of ice’ makes it sound as though I have some bizarre medical condition. In other news, I’ll make a more appealing header when I can be bothered.
