Have you ever thought to yourself "Man, I wish a pagan would come up to me and talk to me about how their religion works"? Well, that's a service you're gonna need to pay for. This is Wizard at Large Consulting, a company which.... uh.... you know, there's cleansing and reiki and stuff. This week, The F Plus is trying to avoid calling Nazi Christian Spiderman.

Quoting Tessa R. Act:
Speaking as a trans person, I'd be down for that- we're starting to get to the end of our rope with them in our community, as well. I mean, it's one thing to be respectful and not police other's gender identities, but for Christ's sake, "dragon" is not a gender, you fuckwits.


I'm genderqueer and used to be involved with a lot of trans and genderqueer groups both locally and online. I've kinda drifted away from the community in recent years, primarily due to a very dramatic shift in living situations; I'm actually very glad that I left when I did, though, considering that that was about the time the trenders started pouring in by the truckload. I'm a little scared to re-establish contact with some of those groups, honestly.

The whole tumblr gender thing has gotten so out of hand. I've been considering submitting a doc on some of the worst of it (genderbitch, ahuviya, special snowflake otherkin pronouns, et al), but I know how much shit I'd get for it and I honestly don't think it's even worth the trouble.

Quoting Salmon:
Was the mocking of genderfluid and non-binary identities really required?
I mean, I don't pretend to understand it, but something has to be going on for someone like Wendy Carlos or Lana Wachowski or whoever to put themselves through the trauma of hormone replacement and reassignment surgery for what honestly tend to end up as kinda shitty new body types - for someone to prefer that to a perfectly healthy, ordinary male body because it's the right gender for them speaks volumes to me.


Eh, some people (a surprising number of them, actually) get pretty lucky. For example, i.imgur.com/1KLG5l8.jpgis the same person, three years apart. But yeah, you do make sacrifices, and it does make your life tremendously more complicated.

I also want to know why the site has become infested with SJWs all of a sudden.

Yeah, seriously.

So remember that one teenager from the school survival episode that was trying to figure out how to make money with their music and/or herbalism? I think this is what happened to them.

Kin Food (otherkin food blog, "kinfood" at Tumblr)


Quoting Kin Food:
"having eaten live termites, they totally taste like oily peanuts. "


Quoting Kin Food:
hello friends, im an elfkin and i often come across the problem where i crave the texture/weight of meat, but get sick with guilt when i try to eat meat. to all the other elf/fae/any kinds of kin that also experience this struggle, i have found that cherries- the kinds with the pits in them- are a great substitute! theyre very “meaty” little guys, without the guilt factor.
[...]
i also noticed, while sifting through the harry potter tag, -


A lot of the food seems to be normal recipies they found on the internet, then said "hey whatever-kin! you like this shit dontcha? come on yes you do you like it! yeah your kind eat coral or some shit yeah see now you remember now come eat this!".

I realize this is entirely the wrong way and place to submit content, but I found this blog called Kin Food (otherkin food blog, "kinfood" at Tumblr). As a fan of both the food episodes and the crazy tumblr people episodes, it's the best of both worlds for me. Well, to be fair, from what I saw the actual food part isn't as bad as AllRecipes, but it's still some pretty hilarious stuff. I guess my point is that if somebody who's more F+ savvy than me finds it as great as I do and wants to spend hours of their time putting together a proper document, it might be something worth reading?

Sweet Christ you people get pissy about other people getting pissy

Quoting .Wizard At Large Consultancy:
A new group of Light Beings that I'm starting to work with are "the Ultras" of Ultraman fame. Yes, I'm referring to the Japanese Sci-Fi anime series that first started with Ultraman (1966, same time as Star Trek came out but was showing in Japan not America) and right now is showing Ultraman Ginga. With their help, I'm creating an Astral Warrior Lodge of Light. They're very real Spirits.


[quote name="thedragon sgraal"most of my Lamas and our sacred ritual materials like altar cloths have the Sun-wheels on them. I was very careful to make sure I used the distorted Nazi form; not the Positive life-affirming forms. I put the Nazi swastika on the calvary cross so people would know that we are not focusing on the mainstream christian energies, just the “radical reich” ones. I hope this will ease any misunderstandin gs. .. Rosenthorn

the only negative statements made here were against those people claiming to be transgender or "non-binary", when in fact they are not at all, merely doing it for attention

And you know that for a fact, do you?


If you can show me where we were criticizing actual transgender people, I'll gladly concede the point.

During the 1990s culture war the xtains used thousands of prayer bombs. To this day people are still finding them buried near women's studies departments, heavy metal musicians' homes, and the building Death Row Records operated out of.

Like WHAT?! When the fuck did this website turn into Tumblr-lite? It is absolutely a true statement that these people are co-opting stuff that they shouldn't be and it's a bad thing! What the fuck is so "gross" about that, moron?

Your tone is really conducive to civil debate and I appreciate it a lot


I admit that I probably overdid that, and I apologize. However, the fact still stands that the only negative statements made here were against those people claiming to be transgender or "non-binary", when in fact they are not at all, merely doing it for attention. If that's "gross", I don't want to know what's acceptable by that standard.

On the other hand, some of the shit you guys are saying about trans people is honestly really gross and I'm kind of disappointed.
