Trannies Are Now Trans-Animals

Naia Ōkami (born 1994) is a transgender British Columbia wolf and red fox therianthrope. She is the founder and current administrator of Kinmunity.

Otherkin Community History

From a young age, Ōkami felt that she was "not human" on the inside. After watching the anime series Wolf's Rain at age twelve, she gained a fascination with wolves and as she read more about them and began to understand them, she began feeling as if she were "a wolf in a human body".

Ōkami first entered the online therian community through the now-defunct WereNet. She "didn't find werelist members to be the friendliest bunch" and ended up migrating to Werelist where she eventually became a docent staff member. In October of 2011, Ōkami founded the Wulf Howl otherkin community. She later founded Kinmunity in December of 2014, followed by Wolf Howl in 2020.

In February 2021, Naia confirmed that she was hellhound kin.

Also, r25, are you saying that this person is a MtF transsexual along with being a Trans-animal? ('It' did seem like a male to me in the video.)

So, if I got 26's 'reasoning' accurately, this individual is not delusional because 'it' is a MtF trans, but is delusional because 'it' is also a Trans-animal.

If I recall the show correctly, the wolf characters weren't anthropomorphic, but just full-blown wolves casting some sort of "illusion" to disguise themselves as humans (see below). So, they're, technically, never human or "human-like" at any point.

I do remember thinking the way they would abruptly cut between their wolf form and human form was slightly confusing, even at 18. I can only imagine how confusing it was for a 12 year old with obvious mental health issues.

[quote] I think most DLers, when they're not being deliberately snarky, are accepting of genuine transsexuals, but this 'other species' subset is just bonkers.

In general, I agree. I don't have anything against old school transsexuals who commit to their decision and just want to live their life.

The problem is that you really cannot draw a clear line between the two. If you accept transgenderism as a valid condition (with all the legal ramifications that changing gender has in Western societies), why should you NOT accept the proclaimed condition of trans-racial, trans-chronal or trans-species people? The sad truth is that, to my knowledge, there's no clear empirical indicators that show us that transgender people were really just "born in the wrong body." We only know from imaging methods data that, neurologically, trans people do not entirely fit with their birth sex. That's all, and it could have many reasons. We might just as likely that there are slight neurological deviations in trans-chronal, trans-species, or trans-racial people...

So, to be fair, why should we give the benefit of the doubt only to transgenderism and not to the other trans people?

Trans-species is fundamentally an attention-seeking gimmick.

There are a couple or so of cases in history whereby a lost or abandoned child was raised by wolves in the wild, and exhibit wolf-type behavior extensively.

This trans character's attempt at imitation is crude, lame, silly/comical, and void of being convincing in mimicking any very elementary-level of wolf characterizations.

Millennials raised by Silent Gen grandparents or by Gen X seem more well-adjusted.

by Anonymousreply 58January 16, 2022 5:35 PM

Alright, deep breaths and get ready, because I have a LOT to say and none of it good.

As I see it (and ymmv):

1. As someone born in 1993 and raised by Boomer parents, allow me to preface my critical screed by apologising on behalf of this misguided, developmentally-challenged, self-absorbed, and frankly foolish member of my generation. Everything about his performance in this video is utterly pathetic, shameful and embarrassing. Thankfully, there aren’t too many of us like him. I feel so sorry for his mother.

2. Wolves do not wear collars & tags. Not even in captivity. That’s the provenance of a domesticated dog. If one is going to role-play as a particular animal with a view to immersing inside an anthropomorphic fantasy, it is probably better to maintain accuracy where possible.

3. Running—well, more like desperately puffing and scrambling and flailing—through the woods dressed in cheap costume jewellery, tight skinny jeans and Converse is not it. Take it from me, a lesbian born and raised in the rural backwoods. At least take off the dangling pendants, and get you some heavy-duty boots with tread and a pair of roomy combats before you hurt yourself, boy. Plus, stop clomping so carelessly around and disturbing a living ecosystem with your RP bullshit, you’re scaring the wildlife and damaging fauna.

4. 90s kids & babies were not supervised enough online, and here is the proof. Looking back on my own lost days as a nerdy lonely preteen using the Wild West late-90s message boards, I myself remember blithely chatting to certain users who were clearly much older than me, who had some anti-social and warped beliefs or values or kinks, and who likely had nefarious intentions for knowingly talking to a minor online. I imagine that had I prolonged or deepened these connections, they would have had highly detrimental effects on my development into adulthood. ‘Naia’s’ suspiciously-specific disclaimer that the KinSpot mapping feature on his website does not allow minors to use it is...interesting.

5. Sidebar, I am curious to know exactly why our subject so vehemently rejects the label of ‘hacker’; suppose he finds it offensive, like being called a ‘white male autogynephile weaboo’. Also, I wonder with which colour ‘hat’ of hacker he would most closely align according to his activity. By loose definition, I optimistically assume that he is either a ‘white hat’ or ‘red hat’ hacker, considering that he seems ethically to favour security-based activity.

6. How is a ‘third-party dream’ indicative that your alleged animus inhabits some other body of a different species? How is *any* dream, recurrent or otherwise, substantial proof of that? How does someone who’s intelligent enough to program computers and build digital locks for a living fail to grasp the accepted biomechanics and psychometrics of sleeping and dreaming?

7. “That is me. I don’t know how, but...that energy, that entire form EMBODIES me.” This is another way of describing possession. Prior to this comment, he describes the symptoms of disembodiment. Not to mention he lives the rest his waking life outside the woods at obvious and stark avoidant remove from most other people and animals, instead choosing to exist in part through a virtual avatar. But that’s none of our business.

8. “No-one wants to be a wolf when it’s time to do ‘Wolf Shit’, like tearing apart a defenceless animal”. Neither does he want to, unless he has a taxidermy hobby he isn’t disclosing. If one truly felt a cerebral or cellular accordance with a canine or vulpine creature, surely one would elect or even need to communicate and behave like such a creature moreso than as a human, i.e. by eschewing human speech and diet and clothing and domicile. We see this clearly in the clinical presentation of so-called ‘feral children’. This man, however, applies and wears makeup, sleeps in a bed with washed sheets inside a house with high-security digital locks, keeps a fridge stocked with herbivorous foods, and prioritises a relationship with a computer—hardly a wild thing.

TBC...

by Anonymousreply 59January 16, 2022 7:45 PM

9. If Naia is WolfKin, and his fellow kinny friend is for instance DeerKin, does that mean Naia has the natural and legal right to kill and eat his friend? And does it mean that a hunter out with a gun and a dog has a right to kill Naia if provoked by him? Just want to know what are the rules of this brave new world.

10. “You can’t have this idealistic and wonderful view of something that isn’t in line with reality.” Ok, who’s gonna tell him? And these man-children wonder why so-called ‘Staceys’ and ‘Beckys’ won’t talk to them...

11. “I’m just saying—I identify as a wolf, because I’m a wolf.” Ugh. Solipsistic tautology. Next.

12. Not to kink-shame, but the only people who wouldn’t be disgusted, or least somewhat confused and slightly-repulsed, by a gift from a loved one of realistic furred ears and a tail to wear, have a fairly twisted idea of a love language. Further, I wouldn’t strictly call it ‘artistry’ to craft animal costumes for a market of anime-obsessed creeps, but admittedly there is a small level of craftsmanship involved, and apparently it is shrewd if niche business.

13. “[By play-acting as a wolf] I can release all my caged feelings and emotions”. This is why many men play and watch organised sports. Testosterone needs an outlet, even and especially for pasty autistic nerdlings. A lot of men also like to connect socially on such levels, and bond best when engaged in such animalistic pastimes (even very-stereotypical gays adore the gym, or badminton, or dog/fitness-walking). Here’s hoping our subject looks into becoming a fan of a clannish and aggressive sport like pro-wrestling, football, or CrossFit—though of course the problem with that is it would entail coming into close frequent contact with stronger more socially-adjusted men who don’t espouse dangerous and borderline-criminal paraphilias...

14. It should be no surprise that a young man with apparent impediment to releasing his aggression and with no obvious mode of releasing his sexual feelings wants to be known as a rapacious predator that in our collective symbolic imagination has a cool and sexy albeit predatory archetype. What big teeth you have...

15. “There’s no-one here to really judge me.” And that is an issue. There’s such thing as healthy low-level doses of social shame. Sometimes you actually need a little bit of encouragement to integrate and a bit of mockery for something antisocial you may be doing. This doesn’t mean abandoning all your notions, or dropping all your quirky interests, or dressing/acting like an average nondescript drone. It is possible to stand out from a crowd and assert an individuality safely, without alienating and repulsing everyone around you by taking on troubling cult-like ideologies. This young man may need intensive therapy to ever grasp and accept this.

16. A lifelong fascination with locks and alarms implies at best a high degree of autism and possibly some overprotective parenting, and at worst an extreme case of CSA. In either instance, fuelling/enabling delusions of disembodiment and doubling-down on paranoiac measures is not helping this young man to grow past any childhood traumas or developmental delays. Any partner, friend, colleague or guardian he has at this point is enabling him.

17. Why did Naia inform the local newspaper about his transitioning? Is that the done thing in British Columbia?

TBC...

by Anonymousreply 60January 16, 2022 7:47 PM

18. ‘Okami’ is of course the general Japanese language term for a wolf or wolf-spirit, but also the title of a cult video-game that was very popular when Naia was growing up. You see from where this stems and where it is likely going.

19. It is not necessary to wear makeup to exist as a woman/female. It never has been, though conventional Western capitalism—the society which this young man has claimed so vilifies and shuns him for his whimsies—will prefer civilians to believe otherwise, because this suits the needs of the competence hierarchy set up by and for powerful men who lust dependent and compliant fuckdolls instead of real normal women. Please no-one attempt to clap back here with any comments about ‘sex-positivity’ or ‘the war on femininity’, because I will tear your head off over that quicker than any wolfman. Conversely, it is not necessary that a straight/bi/whatever man to refrain from wearing makeup because he is not a drag queen. Naia really did not need to invent an entirely different persona in order to experiment safely with glam (not him describing the historical vampy/goth makeup look as “Wolfy”, as if he invented it—not everything is about you and your fetish...)

20. Our subject refuses to grow facial hair because he’s terrified and ashamed of what it means to see a visibly grown man in the mirror who is overly and fetishistically attracted to youth and to animals, as he should be. Chilling that his ‘friends’ pointed out his euphoric state evident when he can get away with indulging his fetishes in public. Throughout this interview, he has a self-satisfied “gotcha” smirk on his face, because he gets off on forcing polite well-intentioned people to sign off on his craziness.

21. “Because of society’s huge negativity about transgender people...” Oh, he means that informed prejudice of which no-one’s seen any real signs (fake statistics, yes; hard evidence, no), in the world where gays and lesbians and women are abused everyday.

22. There’s case to say that, via misrepresentation and insidious adherence to regressive trends, he is in fact hurting others, mostly homosexuals and females. Collateral damage necessarily arises from wrongful insistence that it is possible as a human male to successfully and biologically alter one’s sex/sexuality, and then assert oneself as hermeneutically female-canine (please note the offensive corollary there). By association, he is also sullying the public image of reputable computer programmers/IT security workers (many of whom play a crucial part for public protection in our online age), lupine/vulpine/canine enthusiasts (many of whom work in important roles for ecological conversation), and ‘internet geeks’ (many of whom have entirely harmless and inoffensive hobbies and interests). “I have a job; I have a life; I have to be professional”, he opines, while voluntarily appearing on television, dressed in his kink get-up and twirling around his childlike bedroom, for all including his boss and coworkers and family/friends to see.

23. “We’re all united in this shared experience.” Tell me your ‘community’ is a cult that is recruiting without saying it’s a cult that is recruiting...

24. It is next-level clueless entitlement for a white Western man, of means and able physical health and relative basic mental stability, nominally assuming a name and sex and implied ethnicity of lesser societal privilege, as if it were a fun pasttime such as cosplay. Real Asians, real females, and real people suffering cognitive be distortions in their sense of reality cannot ever remove their biological attributes for social gain or ease. This man will never experience the deprivations of sexism, racism, or the stigma of being sectioned for poor mental health (though maybe that last one is a glimmer on the horizon).

R34/R43 24 yes, WOLF’S RAIN is a very beautifully-animated allegorical story, written and drawn by a group of talented Asian artists (majority female, if I’m not mistaken), which explores and elucidates the suffering within a dystopia caused in part by a chasm in social wealth/health privation in the wake of an apocalypse event, as well the problems caused when certain seperatist social groups attempt futilely to transcend death or metamorphose their own bodies to order to fit in with universally-fatal consequences.

The tragic deuteragonist, the cursed nobleman wolf Lord Darcia III, even attempts to unmake the entire world by magical means and then regenerate it, in order that he might lift his family’s curse of a wasting soul-sickness from his wife & lover Lady Harmona. And he succeeds. In ending the whole of reality and extincting all life in a timeline. Because he was a privileged, delusional and spoiled young man (again, let me reiterate—NOT the hero) who would not come to terms with a sadness and accept his circumstances.

So it’s no wonder Naia likes it so much, though he missed the damn point by miles. Ah, to be blissfully shallow and stupid as a nerdbro.

by Anonymousreply 74January 17, 2022 12:06 AM

R74 Naia has appropriated from so many different groups it’s actually headspinning.

by Anonymousreply 75January 17, 2022 12:15 AM

[quote]Okami’ is of course the general Japanese language term for a wolf or wolf-spirit, but also the title of a cult video-game that was very popular when Naia was growing up.

I'm thinking he was going for a literal Japanese translation of the term "inner-wolf" being that he chose the first name Naia. The Japanese for inside or inner is 内 (uchi) but it's usually paired with another kanji when it's pronounced as 'nai.' For example, contents (i.e. like the contents of a package) would be naiyou 内容。I guess he didn't want to be too literal, otherwise, he'd call himself "Uchinaru Okami" 内なる狼 which literally would translate to "inner wolf" but doesn't have that same "exotic ring" to it, I guess. Who knows. I only studied Japanese for like 3 years.

Oh, and I'm surprised the anime Ranma 1/2 isn't as popular with these types considering its storyline is literally about a guy who's (hilariously) cursed to turn into a girl whenever he's splashed with cold water...

R69 bingo. They never pick prey animals. Or anything non-mammal either. Only ever cute furry predators or protected species, with a certain cultural cachet.

Men don’t know, and don’t want to know, what it’s like to be considered the social equivalent to prey or cattle.

Roger on American Dad likes to pretend. It is a cartoon show.

Naia presents to be a wolf but acknowledges she isn't a physical wolf.

If the physicality doesn't exist, then the mental and emotional identity one is using to label oneself a wolf, has no molecular foundation. Her "feelings" are less genuine, and more about adapting a fantasy escape mechanism.

People can claim to have a "spirit" connection with another species. Does Naia claim to be reincarnated and was a wolf in a former life? I didn't hear her say that.

The whole act is sad and stupid in her quest for validation, and of course, in her need for attention.

Tbf to Naia—and I don’t want to be, he’s obviously got distressing problems that could easily turn in scary and fucked-up directions soon—it’s no less stupid or illogical than a genuine belief in the omnipresent Abrahamic Lord and Saviour sat on a cloud watching over, who loves us humans all yet constantly tries to kill us with natural disasters, wars, famine, systemised abuse, etc.

The wolf has a very short digestive tract compared to a human.

Is they/them willing to shorten their intestine and get surgery for species confirmation?

Cowboy Bebop is a masterpiece of animation. Should never have touched. Cinephiles can appreciate anime and see it as more than a cartoon. Many have masterful storytelling and creativity that is unparalleled by American animation which is just only now breaking out of cheaply animated kids and adult comedy territory.

by Anonymousreply 90January 17, 2022 4:36 AM

r90 Gets it. Anime isn't just exclusively "cartoons for kids" in Japanese culture. It's just another way to tell stories. Most are aimed toward older teens and adults. That includes manga.

I mean, look at Deadpool. That's probably the first Marvel comic geared toward adults, turned live action. But actually done well. Same concept. Different execution.

Blade is another one.

by Anonymousreply 92January 17, 2022 5:02 AM

The Maxx, Aeon Flux and Spawn in the 90s were good short-lived attempts. The 2000s had Avatar: The Last Airbender which I think was a gamechanger because it's fandom is mostly adults and it's writing was not squarely at kids. The DC Animated Universe which started with Batman: The Animated Series in the 90s is still going strong with direct-to-video movies and recent shows like Young Justice and Harley Quinn.

There several animated films, mostly by Ralph Bahski, in the 70s and 80s like Wizards, The Lord of the Rings, Coonskin, Fire and Ice and Rock N Rule which attempted to tell adult stories. Disney tried with The Black Cauldron, Pocahontas, Hunchback of Notre Dame and Treasure Planet to aim at an older audience.

This guy needs to be surrounded by people who tell him over and over he isn't a woman and he isn't a wolf and he isn't a woman who identifies as a wolf, he is a man. A man a man a man.

Your feelings do not constitute material reality. Whether you want to be a man or not, you are one, and have to accept that.

It probably won't work, but it can't be worse than the current insane trend towards supporting these people in their delusions.

R110 to my shame I do still use tumblr (in secret, obviously), but only to chat and bitch and despair with my fellow soccer fangirls about matches & players (all the other major platforms are full of misogynist dicks droning on about stats & Football Manager). There’s a lot of us using that part of the site, and we aren’t disturbed by weirdos much, so the discussions are always lively and popping.

If you have a relatively normative niche interest, tumblr is a decently user-friendly place to communicate and share content. It’s so annoying that the crazy incel cartoon-obsessed perverts ruin the experience for everyone else, and made it a dirty and notorious webspace.

All of these freaks are attached to the gay community, and a lot of you with Stockholm Syndrome allowed them in. When MAPS inevitably join LG, what else are you lot going to accept before the rest of society is completely convinced that us gay people were always everything heinous they said we were? Will we have another B added for Beastiality fuckers? The explosion of trans insanity has made gay people targets for more hate and homophobia because most people don't differentiate us gay people from trans, or from any of the BTQ+ crowd. This isn't diversity. It's insanity and regression. How does this have anything to do with gay rights, sexual orientation, or homosexuality? This is intersectional cancer, shoving minorities or freak groups onto LG for shits and giggles, which has REALLY serious consequences for gay people.

by Anonymousreply 123January 18, 2022 11:33 AM

R123. We need to encourage Trans of all types to band together because they are so important, so vital, so SPECIAL. However, they should be on their own because we as gays will drag them down, because we are nowhere near as special & wonderful, brave, etc. as they are. Some gays may envy how unique & special they are, so Trans of all types need to be in their own group. They need their own flag, own parades, drop in centers, etc. These can be the umbrella for ALL trans to be honored & respected as they emerge. Trans-animals just the tip of the iceberg of trans that are hiding due to fear.

Go Trans go, start your own thing, PLEASE!!

If someone wants to pretend to be an animal and make believe outside. I don't care.

Same with transgender. Doesn't affect me. I respect the pronouns.

I think some of the extremists get way more bothered by indifference then hostility. Most people are too concerned with their own lives to be bothered by these identities. So when people ignore them they get annoyed because they want attention even if it's negative.

Nothing this person does in the woods with their clip-on tail affects me or my life or the lives of anyone I know. They can have at it as far as I'm concerned.
