WARNING: Avallac'h & Ciri Shipping Happens Daily In My Cult of Avallac'h Stream (This seems to piss people off so we seem to need to provide a warning about it)
For those asking if I'm ever going to return to Twitch streaming... I don't know at this point. I'm sick of the harassment.
It's been 2 years since I last did a stream when ThingyChan DID NOT send her group of shithead dipshits to my chat to chant "deserved to be raped" and "kill eelkat".... she has done it with 712 of my streams so far and blocking her and her 800 dipshit cultist followers do no good because they create new throwaway accounts as fast as I block and ban them.
That was bad enough, but she also made 200+ VODs each 4 to 7 hours long, that do nothing but spread highly sexualized malicious lies about me, in which she made the false accusation calling me a "bondage freak", a "BDSM dominatrix", and claiming I had a "foot fetish".
Her running gag memes on Discord are out of control, and not having a Discord myself, I was unaware of them. She started a trend, where if anyone, anywhere, talking about anything, said the word "BDSM", "bondage" or "foot fetish", everyone who read it was to reply in the comments below it "just like EelKat".
Additionally, she built up this massive post-written-rpg-fan-fiction of me, while claiming it was 100% true, depicting me as a whip carrying, pleather wearing, BDSM dominatrix, strip dancer, porn star, who own a gang bang house for men to pay money to be tortured by me.
This went on for 2 full years on Discord before I found out about it, and spanned over 2,000+ Discord posts, JUST WRITTEN BY HER, and not including the many, many, many TENS OF THOUSANDS of posts written by her fans, including her 150+ of which where she used the line: "EelKat is a cunt for liking that pussy Avallac'h".
One of the worst things she did, was to take the horrifying sexual, child abuse I suffered through at the hands of my uncles, and take word for word, line by line, EVERYTHING my uncles dd to me as a child, and make memes of Avallac'h doing those things to Ciri, knowing full well Avallac'h and Ciri and my favorite characters and that my obsession with Avallac'h is in part psychiatric prescribe therapy to use as a coping mechanism for dealing with the abuse I went through at the hands of my pedophile uncles.
On Twitch, she made an active stalking habit of finding very-pro-fundy-Christian groups, telling them her wild sex lies about me, working them into violent attack mode frenzies, and then siccing them on my channel chanting in my chat the message "deserve to be raped" and "kill eelkat". This went on from August 2018.
The worst thing though was sending 5 gang rapists with guns to my house. They totaled 3 cars including my Dazzling Razzberry, raped 2 military wives in the apartment next door to mine, killed a 10 year old boy, beat up and hospitalized 3 elderly men including my 82 year old dad who they put in the hospital with a ruptured kidney, and did $230,000 in damages to our landlord's apartment building, resulting in the city condemning the building, making 28 families homeless, which is why my family moved February 2019.
For the longest time, I was baffled and puzzled by the wild hate that was daily posted in my Twitch chat, from people who were clearly being sent to my channel, pre-worked up, and in a mass hoard, but I could not understand who was sending them or why.
I discovered ThingyChan as being the source of the harassment, on October 21, 2019, when I saw one of her live streams, where she was making a 3d model of a character who she titled "Bjorn The Bondage Freak Just Like EelKat". I had started watching the stream, to find out why my name was in the title. I watched for 3 hours while she and OutSideLane, another streamer on a multi-stream, and 37 members in her chat, and as many more in his chat, in total over 90 people, spent the entirety of the stream talking about my supposed BDSM bondage sex life and how they should make the 3D model Bjorn do the things I supposedly did.
The other streamer suddenly stopped talking and told ThingyChan: "EelKat's in your viewer list, let's take this to Discord" at which point they ended the multi stream.
So, I went to Discord to see what moving it to Discord meant and that's when I found the 2 year long running gag, the 2,000+ posts, and the 200+ VODs.
Among the VODs was one that she did on my birthday August 13, 2019, that was a JackBox stream, and was fully devoted to making 5 hours of lewd, sexualized jokes about me and Avallac'h, and had over 300 people in chat joining in.
When I contacted her to ask why she was doing this... her answer was: "Because it's fun!", "It's just a joke!" and "Besides, retarded cunts don't belong on Twitch".
Jokes are funny. Nothing about what she did is funny. Everything about what she did was mean and hurtful. And jokes don't cause harm. Two women were raped. A boy died. 3 elderly men were hospitalized. 3 cars were totaled. 28 families were made homeless. The landlord lost his business.
Those are some pretty BIG side effects for "just a joke".
What she did was mean, cruel, and far from harmless.
She has taken her "meme joke" harassment to levels of mind boggling extremes and, I'm just sick of it. She is out of control and she needs to stop.
I would like to be able to stream on Twitch without this psychotic bitch and her equally psychotic followers harassing me, each and every single stream.
I'm not bothering her, I don't know why she is bothering me.
I want her to leave me alone.
Evil is as evil does.
This is a perfect example of an evil person, doing evil things.
Bullies don't care, because bullies are mean and mean people care about no one.
These people are very, very, very mean.
August 2, 2020 UPDATE TO the above...
Twitch has now taken action against the attacks on my Twitch channel, so I may return to streaming soon...
Jokes can get you banned from Twitch, yes. One streamer spent the past 2 years "telling jokes" about me on their stream and discord, only I was unaware of it. Their followers started spreading the joke on other social medias.
The joke was telling people that I, a hijab wearing, modesty dressed Mormon, was a BDSM dominatrix running a gang bang service out of my house. The joke became a running gag, that involved more than 800 people across more than a dozen websites. In total more then 800 viewers helped this group of streamers slander my name with sex lies about me. They started "the joke" in April 2018, but I wouldn't find out about it for a very long time.
February 2019 -- 5 men with guns and baseball bats showed up at my apartment building... they raped 2 women, they beat up a lot of people, 3 elderly men, including my 82-year-old dad ended up in the hospital, my dad with a ruptured kidney, 3 cars in the driveway were totaled, including my daily driver, they smashed out the windows and walls of the building ripped out pipes and wires, did $230,000 in damages to the building... it was a medical building next door to a hospital, patients on life support and their families lived there... they ran through pulling out life support equipment... a 10 year old boy died because of it... the town condemned the building the damage was so bad, resulting in 28 families, becoming homeless .... it happened during a stream, so part of it was caught on live stream and the police got 300+ 911 calls from countries all over the world, reporting the attack.... the guys when arrested, said a streamer on Twitch, via her Discord, sent them, told them I was a BDSM dominatrix and that all the apartments in my apartment building with gang bang shops.... that's how I found about the "joke"... via the police report.
There's a big lawsuit going on right now, with everyone involved. 2 streamers are now in prison, several viewers are in jail or out on bail, more will likely follow.
The FBI is investigating every streamer and every viewer involved in the "joke".
And 2 weeks ago (July 2020) Twitch banned more than 70 of the people involved, including more than 20 streamers. The 800 viewers involved in the joke have also all received various forms of Twitch bans and suspensions.... for "just a joke" that in some cases they said only once, as long ago as 2 years ago, and not even on Twitch.
Do not underestimate something being "just a joke" and the consequences you could face for "just a joke".
*(The investigation into this is still ongoing. If you have information on any of the people involved in inciting this event, FBI Agent Andy Drewer out of the Portland, Maine FBI office is in charge of the
I have Kanner's Syndrome (ACTUAL Autism, not Aspergers), which means I'm not good at group things. I'm classified as Savant, meaning I have a few things that I obsess about, big time, and have world records in them as a result, and everything else in my life I still require a caretaker to help me with.
I was believed to be mute until I was 31 years old, when a college professor whose day job was working with Autism children, meet me at an Autism Awareness event (I own The Autism Awareness Car, which has 2.5million marbles glued to it - took 4 years to build it). He spent several years teaching me to talk and I was able to get a GED at age 37 (I had never been allowed to go to school as Autism in the 1970s = too retarded to be taught anything so why bother? It was assumed I couldn't be taught, so no one tried to, until I was 31 years old), and started college at age 42.
Today in addition to being a rabid gamer, I'm also an artist (acrylic on canvas and watercolor on rag) sell my art in local galleries, I build art cars and installation art, published over 130 Dark Fantasy novels, and became a retail merchandiser for Macy's, WalMart, and HallMark for 16 years because I'm very good at organizing things... I can't do much else, but I can certainly make sure nothing on the sales floor is out of place.
On Twitch I'm known for my ability to open up a video game and completely rewrite it removing and making my own... I rewrote Witcher 3, removed Geralt and Roach and the combat system, and build my own player character, made travel companions, wrote a new combat system, made new quests, made new maps... removed all the texture files and made all new ones. There's nothing in Witcher 3 that I have not rewritten. With over 4,000 mods now made for it, you can barely recognize my game as being Witcher 3 anymore.... and yet I can't read C++ code.
I spent my childhood and teen years, being told I would never amount to anything. I proved them all wrong.
People see the things I do very well (art, writing, my exemplary organization skills in retail stores, and my ability to open up a video game and completely rewrite it and making my own) but they often don't see past that.
Social skills are a thing I've not yet mastered, which makes streaming very difficult for me as, chat is sensory overload and I have it turned off. I also can't count, do Math, tell time, use calendars, use money, numbers are lost on me.
Basic things - bathing, eating, brushing my hair, etc - that most people have no trouble with, I have caretakers who have to help me do those thing, even though I'm 20, 30, 40 years older than my caretakers. I am VERY low-functioning, but I can write, I can paint, I disect video games, and I can organize things. I just can't do one thing else. Which is very upsetting, because I wish I could. I try too. I don't know why I can't. It's like there are a few things in my brain turned all the way up on super high and everything else is just turned off and won't come on.
And then there are issues with meltdowns, screaming fits, panic attacks, bad ones. Bad enough that I generally avoid contact with the public, simply because I'm tired of dealing with the police. Someone my age, screaming on the floor, people assume I'm on drugs and call the police. It's very frustrating, because I can not control these attacks and I can't stop them once they start.
It is extremely distressing, I'm insanely good at a few things, but everything else, things most of society doesn't bat an eye at, I can't do them, no matter how hard I try. And I'm not capable of "acting properly" or "behaving in socially acceptable ways".
Most people when they meet me in real life, they are very taken back, by how extremely disabled I am. Fans of my novels, meet me at book signings and ask: "So, what's the joke, what's this retard doing here, where's the author?" They refuse to believe, someone as deeply retarded as me, is capable of writing novels.
It hurts a lot, people's reactions to meeting me and them finding out the reality of what ACTUAL Autism, Kanner's Syndrome, is really like... and that it's NOTHING like Asperger's, with it's "cute Sheldon Cooper quirks" that they are used to and think of as being Autism.
They forget, people with Asperger's can live normal lives, they can pass for normal in public if they have too, they get married and have families, and I'm not capable of living on my own or without caretakers, and I never will be.
I wish more people knew the difference between Aspergers and Autism, and how vastly different they are from each other. Far too many people hear that I have Autism, and they automatically assume I have Aspergers, and then they meet me in person, and are shocked, horrified, and they tell me they've meet dozens, sometimes hundreds of Aspies, and when they meet me, they say, they realize, they've NEVER seen Autism before, in spite of all the hundreds of Aspies they've met, and then they tell me, they wish they had known, they wished someone had told them, how starkly different Autism is from Aspergers, because they always say, no matter how many Aspies they worked with, it never prepared them to come face to face with ACTUAL REAL Autism, Kanner's Syndrome, for the first time.
1 in 3 children have Aspergers, it's very common, but only 1 in 1,200,000 children have Autism, it's very rare. In the wake of the mass flood of people calling Asperger's Autism, people forget how incredibly rare actual Autism really is. They aren't the same thing and until you've seen both side by side, you don't realize how different they really are.
People forget WHY I became such a good writer. I was mute for 31 years. Writing was the only way I could communicate with anyone. But I grew up in a family that crumpled up the paper, never even looked at it. In their minds I was too stupid to talk and therefore anything I wrote on paper MUST have been gibberish. They didn't even look at it. So I wrote letters to the cats that lived with us. I started doing that when I was 8 years old. I still do it 50+ years later.
But I'm not likely to be much use in a group, as outside of writing, art, video games, and organizing sale floors of retail stores, I'm too retarded to be able to do anything else. I'm rarely welcomed in groups, because I'm too retarded, too Autistic to fit in, or so I'm always told. I'm rarely of any use to anyone.
Wait... you're that freak that brought otherkin to the internet aren't you? You're like the founder of online otherkin awareness movement or something.
I did on some level introduce OtherKin, or rather, ElfKin, to the internet in 1996.
I am considered to be one of, if not the VERY FIRST OtherKin to grace the internet.
Though, I am ElfKin, not OtherKin. They are different.
I completely reject Humanity.
I live my life, as an Elf.
I have done so, since 1987.
As of 2020, I have lived as an Elf for 33 years.
I hate Humans.
I feel no empathy, sympathy, or compassion for Humans.
I see Humans as vile, evil creatures, whom I share no connection to.
I feel nothing but revulsion for Humans.
There has never been a point in my life when a Human showed me any kindness, love, or compassion.
I have been tortured, beaten, caged, raped, shunned, outcast, ostracized, and bullied endlessly by Humans.
The Humans who raised me, kept me locked in a cage from the time I was 8, until I was 31 years old. They said they did so because I was not a Human and was not allowed to participate in Human activities like eating at the table, sleeping on a bed, using a toilet, or bathing. They said I was a Changeling, brought to them by Demons. They claimed the real Human baby was taken from them, and I was a Demon left in it's place. And while I agreed with them, that I had no similarities to their Human nature, I did not believe myself a Demon either.
I was 31 years old the first time anyone told me I was a Human. But no one has yet been able to prove to me that I possess the evilness of Humans.
Unlike Humans, I feel love.
Unlike Humans, I feel pain.
Unlike Humans, I shed tears.
Unlike Humans, I feel empathy.
Unlike Humans, I feel sympathy.
Unlike Humans, I feel compassion.
I have tried for 40 years, to live among Humans, but I've yet to meet a Human that will accept me as a part of their society.
I have never been welcomed by any Human.
I have never been accepted by any Human.
The older I get and the more Humans I meet, the crueler I learn that they are, the stronger my hatred for the entirety of Humanity grows.
I searched for years to find out, what I was, where I fit in, where I belonged, for everywhere I went, I was repeatedly told I was too strange, too bizarre, too different, too alien, too not-Human to be welcomed in any group, any church, and community, offline or online.
Since I was a toddler I felt a strong kinship to Eels and Cats, thus my name. My Native American grandmother named me EelKat when I was 3 years old, citing that Eels and Cats were my spirit animals.
My other grandmother called me FarSighted, because I talked to ArchAngels and Faeries in the forest. She said I walked through the veil between the Spirit World. She died when I was 8 years old.
As I grew older, and continued to be ostracized by all of Human society, I started researching the things Grammy Eva and Grammy Helen has said: Spirit Animals, Fairy Sighted, and Walking the Veil. That is when I realized, everyone was right... my parents, my uncles, everyone at every church I ever attended, random strangers I meet on the streets... every one, every single Human, as always said, I either was not Human, didn't act Human, or seemed to be Alien to Human Society, like I came from another world.
The Humans who raised me, kept me locked in a cage from the time I was 8, until I was 31 years old. They said they did so because I was not a Human and was not allowed to participate in Human activities like eating at the table, sleeping on a bed, using a toilet, or bathing. They said I was a Changeling, brought to them by Demons. They claimed the real Human baby was taken from them, and I was a Demon left in it's place. And while I agreed with them, that I had no similarities to their Human nature, I did not believe myself a Demon either. And decades later, after researching, I feel they were right.
The more I studied, the more I realized, everything I do that Humans say is strange and bizarre, things like love, feeling pain, shedding tears, empathy, sympathy, or compassion, those things Humans are incapable of doing, that I do and brand me as starkly notHuman, they were all things the Ljósálfar do.
So I researched the Ljósálfar. They do many thing I do, that Humans find to be my most deplorable traits: like growing flowers, being vegan, and not hurting animals, shunning drinking of alcohol, smoking, drugs, or owning weapons.
I eventually came to believe I am an Elf trapped in the world of Humans, as some sort of test.
No. I do not believe I am Human.
Yes. I do believe I am an Elf.
Yes, I AM that "freak" who introduced the internet to the concept of OtherKin, via ElfKin, in 1996.
Yes, I am the textbook standard, found in actual medical books, used by Psychiatry students, yes, those are photos of me you see in your college textbooks and in the Journal of Psychiatry entry. I am the first one diagnosed and therefore the standard by which all OtherKin are measured.
Yes, I am the measure by which all OtherKin around the world measure if they too are OtherKin or not. But I wonder how many of them, know the origin of the term OtherKin and how many of them would call themselves that label is the ACTUALLY KNEW, the ACTUAL origin and meaning of the word?
OtherKin is not a label I use to call myself. The term OtherKin was coined by team of Psychiatrists, who didn't know what else to call me. They classified me at first as "a Feral Child with Learned Schizophrenia", citing that while I didn't have Schizophrenia, all 5 of the uncles and their father, who raised me did have Schizophrenia and because I was raised in total isolation with zero contact with anyone outside of these men, I was raised as though what they were was normal because I had no outside source by which to judge that how they raised children was not normal, nor was how they lived their lives normal. I was told by these Psychiatrists, that once I got out in Human society and found out what mainstream society was like, I would see, how different, how unique, how bizarre, and how unusual and not the norm, my uncles were.
I have lived among mainstream society for 33 years now and I have yet to meet a kind, loving, friendly Human.
This group of Social Workers, Psychologists, and Psychiatrists, coined the term OtherKin, because they said there was nothing I conformed to, no textbook illness that matched what I was. They toyed with the idea of diagnosing me many different ways because they said that on the surface I seemed like this or that, but then, comparing all the symptoms, I never fully matched up.
Schizophrenia didn't stick because there were no voices in my head telling me what to do. After tossing out the option of Schizophrenia, they tried out Multiple Personality Disorder and also Dissociative Identity Disorder. But, I don't have multiple people I become. Both of those have the requirement of becoming someone else, another person. MPD you are unaware of the other people "living in you" while DID you are fully aware of the "other people" and communicate with them and likely have a lot of past life experiences. I don't believe in past lives or reincarnation or being multiple people inside of one mind. I dress up in costumes of characters, but I never try to be that character, I simply like to wear their pretty clothes.
They tried considering Asperger's for a bit, but I missed many, many, many a mark there.
In the end my official diagnosis is: Actual Autism Kanner's Syndrome, with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and SchizoAffective or maybe Schizotypal tendencies, I can't tell, and the most bizarre behaviour of refusing to believe she is Human, largely because she was raised in an isolated UFO Cult that raised her as a Demon from infancy to middle age. She has many phobias most notable a severe and disturbing phobia of Humans in general and Men in particular. There is no correct diagnosis for her. She is unique. This is a unique case. I am putting in a request to the State for funding to study her. This is something new. This needs to be studied. We are witnessing the side effect of child who was raised in total isolation. A child that was never loved, never kissed, never hugged, never showed empathy, sympathy, or compassion. She feels nothing for Humans. She does not believe she is Human. There has never been a documented case like this before. This is the worse case of child abuse in American history.
I did not found any "OtherKin Awareness Groups" as is the common internet misconception. I don't even use the term OtherKin. It's a label OTHERS slap on me, as further proof that I don't belong in Human society, am not Human enough to fit in, not Human enough to be welcomed, not Human enough to be included. That's all the label OtherKin means to me. Yet more proof that Humans hate me, see me as not Human, and feel the need to put a label on me.
But I am the standard by which all who claim to be OtherKin, measure if each other is OtherKin or not, because I am the textbook case, the original test subject, that caused Psychiatrists to coin the term OtherKin, so most people believe I am the "first" OtherKin, even though groups like The Silver Elves existed in the 1970s, long before the FBI raid that rescued me from one of the Heaven's Gate compounds.
No. I do not try to bring awareness to the "OtherKin Movement". OtherKin is a psychological disorder that for some odd reason, teens and young adults, think of as some sort of roleplaying, cosplaying movement. They don't know what it is. They never looked up any medical journals or psychiatry textbooks. They change what they are on a whim, a Vampire today because they love Twilight, a Witcher tomorrow because they saw the NetFlix series, SpiderMan next week after they watch that movie. They don't know what OtherKin is. It's not a fandom. It's not roleplay. It's not dressing up. And you're a fool if think that's what it is.
People get the misconception that it is roleplaying and cosplaying because I am prone to dress up in elaborate costumes. I like their clothes. It's as simple as that. I'm trying to be them. I don't roleplay them. I don't pretend I am them. I simply like to wear their clothes, in the exact same way, every teenage girl in school has to wear the same t-shirt as her best friend.
When the OtherKin diagnosis was coined, I didn't yet wear costumes. I'd never seen TV or movies or video games. I'd never been to school or doctors. I had no point of reference for what any of these characters would have looked like. The wearing of elaborate costume came about almost a decade AFTER Psychiatrists coined the term OtherKin to describe me.
OtherKin, was referencing my refusal to accept the fact that I was Human, when Social Workers, Psychologists, and Psychiatrists tried to convince me that I was not a Changeling Demon switched at birth like the adults who raised me had taught me to believe.
OtherKin, was referencing the fact that my combined hatred for and phobia of Humans was so great that I had no ability to believe I was a Human, when they told me I was.
OtherKin, it's ACTUAL Journal of Psychiatry definition, is very simply: The belief that one is not Human and is something other than Human. That's what OtherKin means.
Anyone who tells you OtherKin is anything else, has no clue what OtherKin is, knows nothing about it's history, knows nothing about how the term was coined, and is completely clueless about OtherKin in general.
People like to come in saying things like: "Well, because I think OtherKin is about ___ I think we should change the meaning of OtherKin to include ___"
No. OtherKin is an ACTUAL MEDICAL DISORDER... you don't walk into a doctors office and say:
"Well, because I think Cancer is about ___ I think we should change the meaning of Cancer to include ___"
"Well, because I think Asthma is about ___ I think we should change the meaning of Asthma to include ___"
"Well, because I think being stung by a bee is about ___ I think we should change the meaning of being stung by a bee to include ___"
"Well, because I think broken bones are about ___ I think we should change the meaning of broken bones to include ___"
"Well, because I think Influenza is about ___ I think we should change the meaning of Influenza to include ___"
"Well, because I think Diabetes is about ___ I think we should change the meaning of AIDS to include ___"
"Well, because I think SmallPox is about ___ I think we should change the meaning of SmallPox to include ___"
Now can you now see how utterly stupid and idiotic people are when they say: "Well, because I think OtherKin is about ___ I think we should change the meaning of OtherKin to include ___"?
And, no, OtherKin is not the thing where, you wake up one morning and feel like wearing a cat ears headband, so that therefore makes you a cat.
The problem with OtherKin is there is far too much misinformation out there about what OtherKin is, written largely by know-nothing 10 year old children who couldn't tell their ass from a hole in the ground, and think that because they want to wear a headband with cat ears, that gives them to authority to rewrite the definition of medical illnesses.
OtherKin is a mental disorder. It's not a movement. Not a trend. Not a fad. But for some reason, in the last 20 years or so, people have thought it "cool" to "be OtherKin" so, they jumped on a bandwagon to try to be something that they really had no idea what it actually was.
Today, because, thanks to Tumblr and Instagram, OtherKin is now interchangeable with Furries and CosPlay, the OFFICIAL diagnosis of the Mental Illness as listed in the Journal of Psychiatry has been changed from OtherKin to Species Dysphoria, to definasciate from the the actual mental illness of not believing one is Human and the current fad trend of dressing up roleplaying.
People who say I started a movement or awareness groups or claim I try to bring awareness to the OtherKin movement, have no clue who or what I am and are talking out their asses. They don't know me. They do not speak for me. And they certainly don't understand me or how I live my life.
What's your thought on fictionkin? Do you think fictionkin is valid? I'm just a bit curious to know. Personally I think it's really neat! Is that what you do?
I am not FictionKin.
I am EelKin turned ElfKin, according to people who believe in Kinship.
I don't move in OtherKin circles, groups, or communities.
I am considered the "first" or "original" OtherKin, by many in the "OtherKin community" and I hate it, because I have never identified as OtherKin and deeply dislike labels being slapped onto me by vile Humans who try translate what they think I am.
What are labels? A label is simply a way to point at someone and say: "they are not Human enough to be accepted in society". That's all any label is.
And that is all any Human has ever done to me. Label me as this, label me as that.
Never once has ANY Human, ever thought to look at me as another Human, as another member of society, as a potential friend.
Because I am technically "the first" OtherKin, seeing how I was the patient in question, when the team of Social Workers, Psychologists, and Psychiatrists coined the term. I am a patient who was undiagnosable and had "something new", and "OtherKin" was the working title. But because I am technically "the first" OtherKin, I am constantly being contacted by founders, creators, and moderators of groups, forums, subreddits, Discords, FaceBook groups, and other various assorted online communities. I don't know why. I think they see me as a "celebrity" in terms of OtherKin. I'm supposedly the "ideal OtherKin" whom others try to be like.
But... I'm not trying to "be" anything. I don't even call myself OtherKin or ElfKin or EelKin or UnicornKin or CatKin or FoxKin, all of those being types of Kins that people has used to describe me.
I accept the invites and then never post in their communities or groups, because I find myself incredibly uncomfortable around most people who call themselves "OtherKin", because 99.9% of the ones I've encountered are very clearly teenagers and young kids in their 20s who are just trying to be part of a club. They don't actually have post traumatic stress disorder, they know nothing about child abuse or rape, or witnessing multiple murders, or trying to cope with being raised in a cage from the age of 8 years old to 31 years old while also being raised to believe you were a demo, because the adults in your life had schizophrenia and couldn't tell the difference between children and demons. They don't know what it is like to be 31 years old the first time any one ever suggested to you that you might actually be a human, and everything the adults taught you about your lack of Humanity was a lie.
When I accept the invites to join these groups, I go there, hoping to find others like myself, who were never Human, not once from their time of birth. I go there hoping to find others like myself, who were rejected by Humans from the day they were born. But all I ever find are happy go lucky juvenile delinquents rebelling by wearing cat-ear headbands while licking milk out of a bowl. They ENJOY pretending to be animals. They have fun, partying in their fur tails. They have no trauma. They know nothing about OtherKin and it's origins. What OtherKin is or how the word got coined.
The bulk of them are just a group of kids looking for a party where they can dress up in costumes. Only this and nothing more. And that is not OtherKin. Not even close.
Now, that is not to say there is anything wrong with what you are, no matter what you are or how you identify. Your identity is certainly valid and should be acknowledged. I'm not saying it's invalid or should be pushed aside or ignored. What I'm saying is, chances are very high that what you are classifying as OtherKin, is not in fact OtherKin.
That's the problem with online OtherKin communities. They spread far too much misinformation and leave actual, correct information spread far too thin and this leads to a lot of confusion.
The thing is I AM the ACTUAL MEDICAL, psychiatric definition of OtherKin, and it's incredibly rare to the point that fewer then 100 people have ever, EVER been diagnosed with it EVER. Fewer then 100 people in all of the millions of years of this Earth having existed. That's not many people.
And yet, there are MILLIONS of OtherKin, so called, self proclaimed OtherKin just on Tumblr, and not a one of them has a clue what OtherKin even is and that's painfully obvious.
The problem with the invites to join these groups, is I'm not what they think I am. They expect me to be a roleplaying party animal like them and I'm not.
And the fact remains - I hate Humans, and they are just Humans dressed like cats and dogs.
Let me repeat this: I HATE HUMANS.
I WISH HUMANS WOULD DIE. ALL OF THEM. I HATE THEM.
And you want me to join your little group of pretenders? I hate every one of you and you think ha-ha oh she's being in character.
I really do hate Humans.
No Human has EVER given me a reason to think otherwise.
No Human has ever been my friend.
Every Human I have ever met, pretends to be my friend for a few days, then they turn into cruel, hateful, backstabbing bastards.
Humans are incapable of love, friendship, compasion, sympathy.
Humans are evil.
Humans are cruel.
Humans are sadistic.
Humans enjoy hurting others.
Humans are hateful creatures who do nothing hurt everyone in their path.
And if you don't understand THAT, well, Honey, then you CERTAINLY Are NOT OtherKin.
OtherKin is not about your spiritual awakening, your identification with an animal guide... OtherKin is the hatred of Humans, on levels so extreme, that wish all Humans would die.
OtherKin is about you NOT being Human and seperating yourself from Humans because Humans are pieces of shit.
Humans can not be trusted.
Never turn your back on a Human.
There is NOTHING good in a Human.
And if you are ACTUAL, REAL, MEDICALLY DIAGNOSED as OtherKin, then I don't need to tell you that, because you already know evil Humans are.
Humans exist to kill, steal, and destroy. Only this and nothing more. There is nothing else in Humanity.
And the online OtherKin Communities who send me invites to join them.... I've yet to encounter one, single, solitary, actual, real, medically diagnosed OtherKin in any of them. And I've checked them all, and encountered well over a million people who claim to be OtherKin.
I go there are look, in hopes that one day, i will find someone, like myself, who is not Human and has never been accepted by Humans. But there is no one like me. Not surprising, seeing how in all the milinia of the Earth, fewer then 100 people have ever been diagnosed.
And the online OtherKin Communities who send me invites to join them....They do what everyone does and start rumors about me, gossiping among themselves about what they THINK I am, and they build up fanfiction, fantasy worlds about me, that have no basis in reality. They hyped up and excited, fall in love with the fictional version of me that they created in their heads, and then find themselves deeply disapointed when they actually talk to me for the first time and find out that 100% of everything they liked about me, was just fiction made up them, themselves.
Labels. They label me into a group and they love the IDEA of me as that label in that group, but then, meeting me shatters their fantasies about me, when they realize, I'm not what they told themselves I was.
That's the problem with OtherKin and people who call me OtherKin.
You see, they think I'm joking when I say I hate Humans, but I could show you a copy of my psychological evaluation, and the entire section, where the psychiatrist worried about my server homicidal desire to kill all Humans.
I'm not joking when I tell you, that if you act even remotely Human in my presence, I will pull a brick out of my tote bag and smash your jaw in. I've done it many times.
My psychological evaluation, has a full section, of worries that I show no empathy for Humans on any level what so ever, to the point of extreme Sociopathy. Yes, that's a word in my evaluation.
Far too many people look at my being the original "OtherKin" patient, and don't read the full report. They giddy with joy, thinking I'm play acting, role playing, pretending. I'm not. I don't joke. I never joke. Do you know why? I'll tell you why.
My uncles, while beating me in the face with a shovel when I was 8, or breaking my jaw with a cinder block brick when I was 14, or stabbing my arms with forks when I was 4, or driving a 2 foot long foundation nail through my hip leaving me crippled ever since I was 6 years old, or cutting the bottoms of my feet with rusted saw blades when I was 13.... or any of the hundreds of similar things they did.... while they did it, they always said the same thing: "It's just a joke, hahahahahahahaha!", "I'm only joking, hahahahahahaha!"
I have scars all over my body.... scars from wounds that bled for days. Wounds that should have been seen by a doctor. Wounds, that they filled with maggots, because they kept maggots in jars for that reason.
Do you know what it feels like to have you hands chained to cinder blocks, and forks driven into your arms with a hammer, that drove the tines in all the way to the bone, another fork put in, the wound torn open, and maggots poured in, as the adults around you laughed and slapped each other on the back over the good fun joke they were doing, because, the 5 year old girl they are torturing, is not Human, so it doesn't matter, because she's just a changeling left behind by Demons who took the real child. Have you ever watched maggots crawl under your skin then chew their way back out. And finally pass out hours later, and be left there unconscious for days in pools of your own blood. And when you wake up, the adults are disapointed, that you, the Demon Changeling is still alive.
That's what I grew up with.
I was 31 years old when the FBI raid rescued me.
My entire first 31 years of life, was spent being daily tortured, daily told it was okay, because I wasn't Human anyways.
The end result is the only thing in my mind that is more evil then rape and murder, is a joke.
And you'll find out how fast I beat you to a pulp if you dare say word joke in my presence. A joke is the only thing more triggering to me than rape.
Still think you are OtherKin or you know anything about me and my life, how much I hate Humans, or the fact that OtherKin was a term created by Psychiatrists, as a working title to diagnose me, the child who survived "the world child abuse case in American history"?
Yeah. the "OtherKin Community" has a vastly warped view of who I am, and why I'm the way I am.
When you ask me questions about OtherKin and CosPlay and RolePlay... and worse, when you try to sexualize anything about me or make mems about me and say you are just joking... you just make me hate Humans even more. Because you can call yourself OtherKin all you want, but you, running around playing and joking and laughing and smiling, you forget, I don't do any of those things.
Jokes. Laughing. Smiling..... I see those things as a threat and a reason to fight back. And clearly the OtherKin Community knows nothing of trauma, torture, and abuse at the hands of Humans.
OtherKin, it's ACTUAL Journal of Psychiatry definition, is very simply: The belief that one is not Human and is something other than Human. That's what OtherKin means.
If you believe something, you have no doubts, so you would never ask "Am I OtherKin?".
I have yet to find an OtherKin on any online community, who TRULY BELIEVED they were not Human. They will tell you they feel connected, they say they no longer want to be Human. Most acknowledge themselves as the spirit of a non-Human living in a Human body.
Answer me this... how can you stop being Human if you don't believe you are Human? Only someone who believes they are Human would say they want to stop being Human.
They build character sheets, detailing the backstory of their alternate being. But if the being IS YOU, then your life, your childhood, your experiance ARE your backstory. If you had to write a character backstory, you are not OtherKin, you are Multiple Personality Disorder or Dissociative Identity Disorder.
OtherKin you are YOU. You are just not Human and not accepted by Humans as Human. You live with Humans and your experiences with them, are very simply the experiences you have every day, and you don't need to sit down and write a backstory. There is no backstory in OtherKin.
Me? I wouldn't know the first thing about feeling Human, because I never was Human. I never had a transition. I never shifted. I never felt the need to STOP being Human, because there was never a point from the day I was born, when anyone ever acknowledge me as being Human.
But, let's answer your question. My email inbox is so full of so many OtherKin questions. Someday I'll get around to answering them. Let's start with your's.
When you ask me about what type of OtherKin I am, it is immediately clear that you know nothing about me, my history, or the history of the origins of the word OtherKin.
The first known group of OtherKin was ElfKin and was The Silver Elves, and the group still exists. They were founded in 1978. I joined them in 1987. I did not remain Silver Elf, as I found more of a connection to Elves in general, and they were a bit more "religion focused" (like they wanted people to obey their set of rules and such, with was too restrictive for me and contrary to how I felt Eves were). Because of the connection to spiritual teachings, in America The Silver Elves are considered a "legally recognized religion" by the Federal government (same as Catholic, Wicca, Baptist, LDS/Mormon, Voodoo, etc are considered as such). They are really connected to the spiritual and religious side of OtherKin and I liked that a lot.
The term OtherKin, was coined in 1997 by a group of Social Workers, Psychologists, and Psychiatrists and was the working title of the mental illness that would eventually become known as Species Dysphoria.
So calling groups like The Silver Elves "OtherKin" is questionable at best, but they are considered by most "OtherKin" to be the first "OtherKin Group", even though their compound was founded in 1978 and the term OtherKin was coined in 1997.
Being older (elderly) and an ElfKin for 40+ years now, I've seen the OtherKin movement evolve and change a lot. There is always something in it that makes me go: "What the f...?"
But there is never a point when I think: "They are not valid because of ____."
It's always just a reaction of more: "Wow! Boy do they have a completely different take on OtherKin than what I've always thought it was."
And then after I think about it I'm: "Yeah, yeah, I can see how they feel that way. Yep, that makes sense."
I think, because I'm a lot older, and got into it via The Silver Elves originally, I end up taking a very spiritual/religious outlook on it, where I see Elves sort of as my "spirit animals" so to speak... and it seems like, more recently, especially in teens and 20s age group, their take on OtherKin is more, like Dissociative Identity Disorder, like they actually believe they REALLY ARE an Elf or Wolf or whatever.
The first time I heard of the new form of OtherKin, the "I'm not a Human, I'm a Dog" type, my mind was: "Wow! That's crazy!" You see, I look at OtherKin as "I'm channeling the spiritual energy of the Dog, not, I literally become a Dog because I don't want to be Human any more." So, at first, I just had a hard time wrapping my mind around the new "Tumblr style" OtherKin. But then, the more I thought about it, the more I realized, no, it's not crazy, because they are doing the same thing I'm ding, they are just doing it differently.
I mean, I use guided meditations and visualizations and oracle cards to connect with the spirit world and it's energy, and for me, connecting to Elf energy and Unicorn energy and ArchAngel energy has always been the best/easiest way for me to do that. And in guided meditation, you often focus on mentally becoming the Elf or Fox or Raven or whatever your spirit guide is, and so yeah, thinking of it that way, suddenly the new style of OtherKin didn't seem crazy to me anymore and I realized, they are just like me, only different.
And then I heard of FictionKin and I was like mind blown. I was like: "OMG, you don't really believe you actually ARE Harry Potter, do you?"
But then almost immediately I was reminded how many times people said to me: "OMG, you don't really believe you actually ARE Lord Sesshomaru, do you?" because I "CosPlayed" him for 9 years... not to conventions, no, I dressed like him 24/7/365 every day for 9 years, around the house, to go shopping, just all day, every day.
People interviewing me about that back in 2005 and 2007 is one of the early things that brought OtherKin to the internet. When people asked why, if I thought I was him, I would say: "No. I'm channeling his energy. I feel more connected to his energy when I dress like him. I'm not trying to be him."
And then I did the same thing with Quaraun for 7 years. And for the past 3 years I've done the same thing with Avallac'h. And yeah, these are fictional characters. Which, I guess, maybe, would cause other people to see me as FictionKin? But they are all Elves, and I am ElfKin and I'm not trying to be or become the Elf in question, rather I feel better able to connect to spiritual Elf energy, when I dress like a fictional Elf from a novel. It's more like I borrowed the Elf's clothes and just wear them.
It's like weighted blankets. They protect you and help you sleep. Same thing. I have PTSD, OCD, Kanner's Syndrome, and Agoraphobia. The longest I have gone without setting foot outside of the house was 15 years.
I was horribly abused by my uncles and several of their male friends from their church as a child and as a result, I developed a crippling fear of Humans in general and Men in particular, and than, as an adult, years later, I was raped and that brought back all the mental trauma memories of what my uncles did, and I don't know what happened, but my mind was just mentally crippled after that, to the point that I locked myself in my room and did not leave it for 15 years.
2006, I went outside for the first time, in 15 years, and I was only able to do so, by wearing a costume of Lord Sesshomaru. When you read the books, he's fearless. He can walk through crowds and he doesn't care who thinks what, and if someone tries to hurt him or his friends, he would never let the attacker hurt them. He's fiercely protective of Rin, the Human girl who travels with him. He has a fearless energy to him. Very powerful fearless energy, and I wanted to feel that.
I wanted to be able to go outside, without being terrified men would hurt me. And I tried for weeks, months, to go outside. I'd get to the door and I'd freeze. A mental block made my body so rigid I couldn't move my feet to get out the door. My agoraphobia was that bad.
So, I started meditating, channel Lord Sesshomaru's energy. And it healed, but it didn't help enough. So I ordered fabric, fur, leather, bolt of silk from Japan, from eBay and Amazon, and I made what went down in history as both the most expensive and most insanely elaborate Lord Sesshomaru CosPlay ever made. And, when I put it on, I was able to walk outside of my house for the first time in 15 years.
It was like, before I channeling his energy, but now, he was there with me. It's the only way I know how to explain it.
I still have severe agoraphobia today. But since 2006, I can go outside, IF, I dress up like an Elf. The stronger the Elf the better. A powerful protecting spirit.
That's why I now CosPlay Avallac'h. There's no one, more protective then he is. It's what he's known for. His fierce protectiveness of Ciri, the Human girl who travels with him is beyond Lord Sesshomaru's protectiveness of Rin. He won't let anyone hurt her. He'll die to to keep her safe. So I retired the Lord Sesshomaru CosPlay and made the Avallac'h CosPlay, my new protecting spirit. An Elf, but also, a Fictional Character.
He's not real. I'm aware he's not real. But that doesn't change the fact that I can draw on his fierce protective energy, to be able to go outside, go shopping, not have to buy everything online or have others buy things for me and deliver it. I can do it myself, dressed like an Elf, but at least I'm outside.
The fact remains, there's never been a real man in my life who DID NOT hurt me. I grew up with drug dealers. Real life gangsters. They killed people. Throughout my childhood and teen years I had witness multiple murders, Brutal. Violent. I was beaten and locked in cages. I watched them kill people, then turn around and threaten to kill me if I ever told anyone.
Today most of them are dead, in prison, or on the run from the FBI. There was never a time in my life when I felt safe, and around men, I felt less safe. There has never been anyone there for me. No mental support. No emotional support. No one to protect me from the men I grew up with, or the gangs they had shot outs with.
I would read books, while hiding under a blanket to try to blockout the screaming and yelling and gun fire. None of the children were allowed to go to school or doctors. We lived on a farm, in the forest, miles from the nearest anything, fenced in and guarded by riflemen. No one had birth certificates or SSNs. No paper trail. No adults outside the clan to turn to for help. I would read books, while hiding under a blanket and praying for someone to please help me. It was none stop terror every day, all day, my entire childhood. Fictional men in books, where my only friends. I was drawn to men who protected children, especially men who protected little girls.
Lord Sesshomaru protected Rin, an 8 year old girl.
Avallac'h protected Ciri, a 12 year old girl.
That's why I was drawn to them. They are strong men who protect little girls from evil men.
This is also why I take such a very strong and heavy offense to anyone trying to sexualize my kinship to either Lord Sesshomaru or Avallac'h.
My attraction to them is not sexual and I do not like people trying to translate it that way.
I see them, more along the lines of ArchAngels. Protectors. Someone you can look to to always be there for you. Someone who will never hurt you. Someone who will keep you safe.
Nothing will make you my enemy faster than you trying to sexualze me, my life, or anything I do. I am asexual, on an extreme anti-sex level. I have an extreme hatred for sex. And if you try to sexualize me or anything I do, you will quickly find yourself branded one of my top most hated people on the planet.
But, yeah, I am myself ElfKin, but you can see why I find no issues with FictionKin. Also, while I tend to lurk in OtherKin communities, I don't see myself as OtherKin, because I see ElfKin and OtherKin as being 2 very different, but also very similar things.
I should also point out that I think of ElfKin and FictionKin as both separate and different from OtherKin, that they are 3 completely different things in my mind, but that none is any less valid then the other and that each of the 3 should be supportive of the other 2.
My thought is, you wouldn't be Kin to anything if you had not suffered through extreme trauma and your Kinship, is your way of coping. For is, after all, nothing more than a mental illness. The concept of Kinship, was created by a group of psychiatrists, to explain people who are not Human, but live in Human society. You can not be Kin to anything and not also be insane. That is a medical fact. And therefore, all Kin are Kin to each other through their insanity, regardless of what type of Kin they are or how they explain their Kinship.
I think of all Kinships this way. Each is distinctly different, but, all are similar enough that each should try to learn from one another and be supportive of each other.

Beware of White Men In Gypsy Clothing Fake Psychic Scams A Look At The Difference Between A Gypsy And A "Gypsy" Psychic Fortune Teller
If you do a Google search for the term "Gypsy Psychic" you get 32 million search results. I went and opened the first 13 pages (yes 130 sites) and in every case, I found "authentic Gypsy", "real Gypsy", "my grandmother was a Gypsy", blah, blah, blah.
I find this fascinating, because, well, being a Gypsy myself - a REAL one - I happen to know, by name, EVERY Gypsy on the planet, and I don't know ANY of these people.
If you are wondering how it is possible to know by name EVERY Gypsy on the planet, well it's easy, once you realize that Gypsy is a RACE of people, not a career, not a lifestyle, not even an ethnicity or culture, but an actual race and distinct of people, and it is one of about 300 races of HUMANS listed on the Critically Endangered Species list.
Yes, Gypsies, like Bengal Tigers, Californian Condors, and the Aborigines of Australia are listed as Endangered Species.
And yet, there are 32 MILLION websites all claiming to be Gypsies. How is that possible? It's not. What you are looking at is one of the biggest scams white men have ever pulled on their fellow mankind.
Out of the 2,000 Gypsies alive today there are exactly 14 who are trained in divination arts of our ancient Magi forefathers. In other words there are ONLY 14 REAL, live, AUTHENTIC Gypsy "fortune tellers" on the planet. That's a far cry from the 32 million FAKE Gypsy fortune tellers who have web sites.
Unfortunately, it is widely know that these "gypsy" fortune tellers are scam artists. It is unfortunate, because so few white men have any clue that these scam artists are just their fellow white men and not real Gypsies at all. It results in other white men, who do not realize it is their own kind that is scamming them, to think of Gypsies as scam artists, when the harsh fact of the matter is that it is white men dressed in Gypsy clothing who are scaming people. We Gypsies find this very upsetting and unsettling because we don't like the bad reputation these white scam artists are giving us.
Beware of White Men in Gypsy Clothing
One of the biggest scams in the psychic community is what is known as "The Gypsy Scam". Quite simply, it is a white person dressed in "gypsy" clothing and pretending to tell your future.
The white folks doing this, are nothing but Golliwogs. A Golliwog is a racist bigot who thinks nothing of dressing up as another race, going so far as to paint their skin black and lips red, in the case of classic Golliwogs, then dancing around like an idiot to make fun of the race in question.
Golliwogs were a common thing in the early days of Hollywood, when white men were used to play Black, Chinese, or Native American characters in movies. The civil rights movement of the 1960s through the 1980s put an end to MOST forms of this racial bigotry. Unfortunately, come Halloween, you can still go to WalMart and by "Mexican" or "Gypsy" costumes, alongside Spiderman and Wonder Woman.
To the white men, we are nothing but a Halloween costume. And a garish one at that.
How To Tell If A Gypsy Is a REAL Gypsy:
#1: A DNA test.
The best way to tell a Gypsy from a white man in disguise is to simply know what a Gypsy is.
Once you know that a Gypsy is a race and can be determined by a simple DNA test, just ask the so-called "gypsy' to show you their DNA blood charts.
Gypsies are an endangered race. Fewer then 2,000 gypsies are alive according the the 2007 Census of Endangered Indigenous Human Races.
The Gypsies originated from Persia. The first known history of them is their Magi priests who worked for King Darius. The Magi were a group of children, kidnapped out of Judea and raised in the temples of Baal. The most famous of the Magi priests were Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, who were responsible for creating most of the rules of the Brotherhood of the Magi or the Magi Order. The original Magi were Hebrew Sorcerers and Soothsayers who married Persian woman. It is the children of this Hebrew/Persian blending, who became known as The Gypsies.
The Magi in Persia, were dual. The people revered them for their powers of divination and saw them as a direct link to the Heavens. However, while the Magi had the respect of the people and were sought out by kings, they were slaves. They risked execution if they dared set foot outside the temples of Baal and were often tortured if their predictions were not to the king's liking. If one Magi gave an unsatisfying prediction, all members of his order, not just him, were thrown into a pit of wild beasts. The Magi were noted for their work with angels and the most famous story of Magi-Angel interaction is the story of Daniel and the Lion's Den.
The Magi wore very specific robes of red, blue, or purple silk, embroidered with the sacred symbols of the Angels: stars, eyes, fruit, flowers, feathers, moons, and suns (a tradition which they passed down and continue to do to this day.) The High Priests wore gold breast plates, embedded with sacred gemstones, and divined messages from God through his Angels by use of casting stones, shells, rods, and bones.
The Magi were prisoners of King Darius. Slaves to the throne and in the early days, their only desire was to be reunited with their people: The House of Israel.
When Darius' empire fell, the Magi took their families and fled Persia, originally intending to return to Judea and the house of Israel. However, because of their enslavement as soothsayers and socerers and their having taken Persian wives, the Magi were cast out of the House of Isreal, cursed by the Isrealites to wander the earth along side the people of Ishmael. The Israelites saw the Magi as having turned away from God, accussing them of having followed in the footsteps of Lucifer and the Third of the Host of Heaven that had been cast out. The Magi and their work with Angels for divination purposes were seen as a corruption and a perversion, and were forced to flee for their lives, from their own people who never welcomed them back into the fold.
The Magi, took the Grigori, the Fallen angels who were cast out of Heaven, as their Guardian angels, converted from the Hebrew/Jewish religion to the religion of Ishmael (Islam/Muslim). In addition to divination with the Grigori Angels, the Magi began to practice too, divination with DiJinn.
The Magi became known as The Wise Men of The East, and The People with No Home and they wandered the face of the earth in a vast caravan, taking their families with them. In the New Testament they are mentioned breifly when Saint Luke described them as a "great multitude" that arrived in Herod's court seeking the birth of the New King (Jesus). Rumours of the Magi's armies of Fallen Angels they had at their comand, terrified people whereever they went and they were not allowed to stay in any city for long. Their outlandish clothening made them instantly identifiable. When King Herod looked out into the city and saw their great numbers and the fact that their tribe was so large that they could overthrow his kingdom in minutes, he sent them to Bethlehem.
The Magi wandered ever eastward and eventually and went to Mongolia. By this time period, they were also being called "The Scithians" and were noted for their tall pointed red hats, amor made of jeweled gold, heavily embroidered silk robes, herds of horses that were equally bedazzled, and wearing belts decked out in chains, each chain holding the resin preserved head of an enemy. The Magi had become warrior, wizard priests, with flags painted in Grigori symbols of feathers with eyes on them.
It is in this time period that the first description of them being short appear. They were said to be surprisingly small and rode on what people described as "minuature ponies". They lived amoung the Mongolians for a few centuries, settled for the first time since their imprisionment in Persian. From the Mongolians they added Animism and Shamanism to their divination practices and now in addition to the silk robes, heads of enemies, and jewels, they began to wear animal skins, furs, bones, and antlers.
From Mongolia, they were captured by Scandinavian pirates (Vikings) and their holy woman enslaved to perform divination for their village leaders. It is the Magi, not the Vikings who wore the "horned helmets". Believing heavily in the power of the spirit world, Viking ships always kept a Magi Wise Woman on board, and she would often wear antlers of caraibu.
The Magi were once again slaves, forced to do divination for kings. They eventually escaped and made their way to what is now Scotland, where they lived amoung the Picts. This is the first time in their history, that the Magi had a long term stay in any one location, living with the Picts for about 900 years. They remained in Alba/Scotland, intermarrying with the Picts and became classified as "The Indigenous Peoples of The Scottish Highlands".
By the time they had reached Scotland, The Magi had begum wearing "scarlet" which was wool that had been dyed red with blood. Their outfits were now a distinct blend of Asian kimono style silks, fur capes, and wool wraps (plaids or great kilts). The Magi, were seen as fierce wildmen, because of their blood dyed cloth, their long swords, and their belts of shrunken heads, which were all decorated with gold, jewels, and embroidery of stars, eyes, and moons.
The Magi, by this point, had developed very distinct physical features:
The Magi were very short, often under 5 feet tall, 5'3" being the average and rarely reaching a hieght above 5'9".
The Magi had a golden olive skin tone, not quite as "red" as a Native American, not quite as "yellow" as an Asian, sometimes pale enough to pass for "white".
The Magi have large noses and high cheekbones.
The Magi are large boned, their bones being shorter, thicker, and stockier then normmal.
The Magi have a low metabolism, giving them an overall rounded or plump appearance, with "fat cheeks" .
The Celts had several names for them, calling them "The Little People" because of their distinctive lack of height.
The Irish called them "The Leprechauns" due to their distinctive, red silk, pointy toed, jeweled and embroidered shoes. (The word Leprechaun means "The Shoe Makers")
The Welsh called them "FarDarrig" which means: the Men who paint their coats red with human blood, or simply The Red Men, due to their habit of dying their silk robes red, with the blood of slain enemies.
Because of their Hebrew/Persian/Muslium/Mongolian divination of Angels, DiJinn, and Nature Spirits, they were also said to be the "Childen of the Fates" or Faeries for short. the Celts believed the Magi to be the Angel-Human half breeds mentioned in the Apocrapha; the children of the Grigori Angels who mate with the daughters of men. The Magi were seen as not-Human, Changelings, and were greatly feared by the Christians and Catholics that were fast flooding into the British Isles.
Called the Children of the Fallen Ones and the Children of Lucifer and Satan, believed by the Catholics to be the half-bred, half human, half Fallen Angel beasts of the Bible, the "Children of the Serpent", the Catholics sent a priest named Patrick to drive them out of the British Isles.
The Catholics and their Holy Knights invaded the British Isles and slaughtered all the native "Heathens" under the belief that because they were half-human and half-angel, they were all demon and therefore must be murdered. Ptric drve the "snakes" out of Ireland. The "snakes" became known as The Irish travellers. Meanwhile in Scotland the Picts were being masaqueed into near extinction. This is what the Scottish refer to when they say "the celtic Invasion". With the Picts (and most of the Magi along with them) annihilated in this mass genocide, the remaining Magi gathered up their families into their bright painted covered wagons and fled to Egypt.
When the pale faced Celts invaded the British Isles in their religion crazed, pro-white power, anti-coloured skin, genocidal, mass murdering fury, the Magi fled again, this time to Egypt.
Once again the Magi found a home, but they never accepted it as their home. While they were welcomed with open arms by the Egyptians, the Magi boiled with seathing hatred for the white men that had murdered their families, razed their horse farms, and drove them out of Scotland. Spouting curses at white men and swearing vengance, the Magi vowed to never again trust a white man and from that day forth, Magi children are raised to fear, loth, and hate white men with a verhemant hatred, taught to not associate with white men, taught to curse white men, taught to see white men as the vile, hate-filled, murderous scum of the earth.
The Magi lived among the Egyptians working alongside their priests and became known as "The Gypsies" which meant "the People Who Live with The Egyptians". Egypt was a very open country, not known for the pro-white power, pro-christian, kill everything not white or Christian, mentality that was fast sweeping across Medieval Europe.
At this point the reigne of the Magi had ended. Fearing they would be slaughtered if white men knew who they were, they no more called themselves The Magi, instead, adopting the name the Egyptians gave then: Gypsies.
While they were welcomed to stay and live among the Egyptians, The Magi, now calling themselves The Gypsies, had only one goal in mind: Return home to our farms in Scotland. Unfortunatly the mass-genocide of the Picts had left numbers few and widely scattered. They no longer lived in one mass tribe, but instead were broken into smaller familiy units scattered to the wind. This seperation of the tribe mentally and emotionally devistated them, for in 4,000 years, the Magi had never once seperated or divided their tribe. The entire population had moved like a vast herd of gazzel in a single unit, with their strength coming from their vast numbers. Their battle cry had been for millennia: protect the family, and the entire tribe was the family.
In Egypt the Magi were no longer a single large tribe, but now hundreds of small clans, most only 20 or 30 members strong, rarely with more then 3 generations living under one roof. The Magi were used to familiy units of 100 or more members, with all uncles, aunts, grandparents, in-laws, cousins, and children living under "one roof" (more accuratly, one clump of tents.) This change in how the family units lived together, is the major reason behind the change in the name of the community from Magician (Magi) to Gypsy (Gypsies).
Reuniting the family units into a single force tribe once again and retaking scotland, became the priority. The Gypsies made several attempts to return to Scotland, each time returning to Eygpt, eventually being chased by the British to Germany. The primary factor against them was their vainity and use of swordsmanship. The Gypsies had for cennturies been noted swordsmen and refused to undate their weapons to match the battle machines and cannon fire of the progressing world. The invention of canons, pistols, and other guns and their refusal to use them, was their downfall.
Their final attempt to return to Scotland came in the 1530s, when they were captured by the British and sold into slavery. Between the 1530s and the 1640's nearly every Magi/Gypsy was rounded up and either slaughtered, enslaved or marrooned in the New World. Some 20,000 Gypsies were murdered in this racial cleansing, bringing the Gypsy race to obscurity and near exstinction. The few that survived the massacre did so only because they had been marooned in the New World along the coast of what is now Maine and Nova Scotia, where they lived among the Native American tribes of the region.
In the Americas, the Gypsies continued to practice their divination rituals, now adding to the mix, Native Americans spirituality. In the 1700s, the Gypsies began to travel across the country in bright painted covered wagons, setting up bright colored tents (still decorated with Eyes of Angels, stars, and moons) and began charging white men fees to see their ancient Magi Rituals performed. The white men changed the race name Magi to Magic to describe the divination rituals themselves, saying it was "Gypsies performing Magic".
Through this, circuses, travelling side shows, carnivals, and freak shows got their start. By the 1800's the Magi, were now being called Carneval Gypsies or Carnnies. In addition to Magic, they began to add entertainment/performers, curiosities, exotic animals, and eventually amusment rides. They began settling down on beaches and setting up coastal amusement park communities.
Today the Magi are known as The Scottish Gypsies and still live in New England and Maritime Canada and are still operators of circuses, side shows, freakshows, carnivals, and Magic arts.
How much of this info has a paper trail that can be proven, and how much is word of mouth passed down over the years? The paper trail (which includes birth record, death records, marriage certificates, deeds, grants, recipts, and other documents) goes from the current era Maine back to 1500's Scotland. The info from 1500's Scotland, back to Bible times, is passed down word of mouth and while some details can be found in historic documents, many can not be and are unknown as to how accurate they actually are.
From 1648 to today, there exists a meticulously kept file of documents and nearly every member of the Googings/Ricker/Allen clan can be traced from 1648 to today. The parts about the Vikings, Mongolians, Sicians, and Persians, is word of mouth, passed down granny to grandchild, has no paper trail that we are aware of and at the moment is neither proven nor disproven.
However, our clothes, our religious traditions, and magic arts, are filled with Persian, Muslim, and olde English traditions, indicating there is some truth to the story.
The Scottish Gypsies who descended from Persian Magi, are the ONLY people on the planet who can truly, correctly, and accurately use the word Gypsy for themselves. There are fewer then 2,000 gypsies alive today in 2015. Of them, there are EXACTLY 14 who practice the art of ancient divination and fortune telling. and yet, if you Google Gypsy fortune telling, you find a whopping 32 million sites, all of which are run by so called "real" or "authentic" Gypsies.
This is a HUGE scam, by white men, pretending to be us, and thinking that if they dress up in silks and gold coins and wave tarot cards and crystal balls in your face, you'll think they are real Gypsies.
The word "gypsy" has been erroneously used by ignorant people to mean "nomad" and is commonly (and incorrectly) used for The Romany People and The Travellers.
The Romany are NOT Gypsies. Their people have no blood link to the Persian Magi and never lived in Eygpt. The Romany are a brown skinned race who descend from India and lived in Romania, Italy, and Spain.
The Travellers are NOT Gypsies. The Travellers are Celtic (often Irish). They have no blood link to the Persian Magi and also never lived in Eygpt. They are a pale skinned (often red haired) race that originated in Italy and the British Isles.
The problem is that white people say "Well you all look alike" so they slap one title on all of us. As the Gypsies were the first of MANY nomadic groups the Europeans encountered, they simply decided to call ALL nomadic groups "gypsies" regardless of if they were or not.
The Romas ARE NOT Gypsies!
The Travellers ARE NOT Gypsies!
Living in a caravan does not make you a Gypsy!
Being a transient does NOT make you a Gypsy!
Being a Roma does not make you a Gypsy!
Being a Traveller does not make you a Gypsy!

Being homeless does not make you a Gypsy!
Backpacking across Europe does not make you a Gypsy!
STOP CALLING THOSE THINGS GYPSIES!!!!
One thing and one thing only makes you a Gypsy: your DNA. There are only 2,000 people on the planet with REAL Gypsy DNA. If you ain't got Gypsy DNA in your blood, you ain't no Gypsy and ain't got no right to be abusing the name of our race. And if you ain't related to me personally, I can guarantee you ain't got Gypsy DNA. I know the names of almost every person known to be a REAL Gypsy, and that's because we are all related. I can also guarantee, that whoever it is, squatting on your land in Europe, picking your pockets, robbing you blind, they are not Gypsies, because we don't have any family outside of America and Scotland, and their all settled farmers every one of them.
A DNA test will tell you if they are of Jewish & Persian mix decent or not. If they are not a Jewish Persians, they are NOT a Gypsy.
#2: Gypsies have distinct ethnic features.
You can often tell a REAL Gypsy from a FAKE Gypsy, simply by looking at them.
REAL Gypsies are very short, often under 5 feet tall, 5'3" being the average and rarely reaching a height above 5'9".
REAL Gypsies have a golden olive skin tone, not quite as "red" as a Native American, not quite as "yellow" as an Asian, sometimes pale enough to pass for "white".
REAL Gypsies have large noses and high cheekbones.
REAL Gypsies are large boned, their bones being shorter, thicker, and stockier than normal.
REAL Gypsies have a low metabolism, giving them an overall rounded or plump appearance, with "fat cheeks".
REAL Gypsies usually have dark brown wavy hair. They almost never have blond, red, straight, or curly hair.
REAL Gypsies have extremely dark green (look black) eyes. Sometimes varying from green to dark chocolate brown (look black) eyes. Their eyes are distinctive in that they look solid black regardless of their colour. It gives them a "haunting" or 'bewitching" appearance and looks as though they have no iris at all, just very large black pupils. They almost never have blue, grey, light green, or light brown eyes. americans tend to describe Gypsy eyes are 'exotic" due to their exceedingly dark, blackness. Gypsies are described by white men as black-eyed, but MOST Gypsies actually have green eyes, the shade of green being very dark. It is rare to find a Gypsy whose eyes are any colour other then green.
#3: Gypsies have a distinct culture
Gypsy culture is VERY religious, filled with taboos and superstitions, many of which appear distinctly Muslim, others Old English Gnostic Christian, or Scandinavian Pagan. This is because of their blended history with these religions.
Gypsies have very strict lists of foods they won't eat, items they won't touch, things that are not allowed, etc. The list of taboos (each taboo with an accompanying "old wives tale" to explain it) is staggering. Everything from the weather to trees to rocks to how food is prepared to who sleeps where to what colours clothing can be worn on what days has a set of "rules" governing it. There are thousands of taboos.
Likewise there are as many sacred objects and accompanying rituals, prayers, and offerings to be made to the spirits.
A white (wo)man, pretending to be a Gypsy, will spout off information about telling your future, but they will not be able to detail you the hows or whys behind what they say. They can not tell you the cultural significance of the meanings of the divination they do.
If you ask a fake "gypsy" to tell you their "gypsy" history, they will tell you some cock and bull story about "it's a secret, I can't tell you" or give you some phony story straight out of Hollywood fantasy.
They will not be able to give you REAL Gypsy history behind spells, divinations, and rituals, because they do not know them.
Keep in mind that Gypsies revere their history and story telling, telling their history to their children and grandchildren is a HUGE part of Gypsy culture.
There is no such thing as a Gypsy who does not know their history.
There is no such thing as a Gypsy who claims their history is secret or sacred and can't be told.
While the actual practice of the Magic Arts is sacred and kept secret, there is no such thing as a Gypsy "fortune teller" or "psychic" who does not know the history behind what they do and they will always tell you the names of the Grigori governing each aspect of their work.
There is no such thing as a Gypsy "fortune teller" or "psychic" who does not know the Grigori ArchAngels by name.
NOTE: The Grigori have ancient names known throughout time. Beware of fake "gypsies" who give you made up or modern sounding names. if in doubt, Google the Grigori, and research them for yourself.
REMEMBER: The Gypsies started out as jews A Gypsy "Fortune Teller" who does not work with the Grigori Angels and other ancient hebrew deities is NOT a Gypsy!
Remember: The Gypsies have a distinct bloodline...
They started out as Hebrews (Jews) who were kidnapped and forced into Persian slavery. They NEVER let go of their Jewish past and hold high regard for very ancient Angels, known as the Grigori Angels, which they believe to be their personal guardians and protectors.
The Gypsies revere the Grigori Angels in the same way Catholics revere Mother Mary and Born Again Christians revere Christ Jesus.
This is the #1 BEST way to test a Gypsy "psychic" to find out if they are a real Gypsy.
EVERY REAL Gypsy "psychic" is going to tell you that they are NOT psychic, that they do nothing by their own power. They will then tell you about the Grigori Angels, listing these ancient Hebrew holy deity-like beings by name, AND will tell you specifically WHICH of the Grigori is their personal Guardian Angel (for example, mine is Ertael).
If you ask a "Gypsy fortune teller" to tell you which of the Grigori is their guardian and they give you a blank stare and ask you what a "Gregory" is, you know you are dealing with a faker.
Remember: The Gypsies were first Hebrew children who were kidnapped by Persian soldiers and sold to Persian temple priests, where they were raised in Persian, by Persians, as Persian Wizards. Most of their Hebrew culture was striped away, with them holding on to only bits and pieces of their past, mostly the stories of the ArchAngels.
REMEMBER: The gypsies are the magi of the bible ~ the children of israel raised as persian wizards in the temples of baal by persian priests ~ REAL Gypsies are PERSIAN, DRESS in Persian outfits, practice a religion that is a persian inspired blend of Judaism & Muslim, and practice PERSIAN magic arts ~ FAKE "gypsy psychics" lack these traits.
Keep in mind too, that because the Magi adopted Persian sorcery practices, they were cast out of the House of Israel and sent to live in the House of Ishmael instead. Because of this, they stopped practicing the Jewish religion and started practicing the Muslim religion. Which means that in addition to the Grigori Angels they began working with DiJinn as well.
An AUTHENTIC Gypsy "fortune teller" is not only going to be able to tell you about the Hebrew stories of the Grigori (and their half human children: the Nephilim and Seraphim), but also the Muslim stories of the Grigori AND their familiars the DiJinn.
REMEMBER: Gypsy divination, is ACTUALLY a soothsayer who is using sacred rituals to call upon the assistance of the Grigori Angels. The Gypsy "fortune teller" IS NOT psychic, they are simply trained in the sacred art of communicating with Angels.
Also, keep in mind that in addition to the Grigori Angels, a REAL Gypsy, also communicates with DiJinn.
REMEMBER: The Magi were cast out of the house of israel and converted from Judaism to Islam A Gypsy "Psychic" Who Does Not Work With The DiJinn and other Muslim deities Is NOT A Gypsy!
DiJinn are lesser spirits, not as powerful as Angels, that can be captured and coerced into doing one's bidding. They are also known as Familiar Spirits.
DiJinn are chaotic and can become violent. They are dangerous to work with and have been known to turn on their "masters". Many cultures refer to DiJinn as being demons or evil spirits. When someone is said to be "possessed by evil spirits" most likely they have been infected by a DiJinn.
Gypsies cast curses, or at least, Gypsies cast what other cultures call curses. Gypsies themselves don't believe in curses in the same way white men do. The Gypsy concept of what a curse is, is quite different from what white men claim a curse to be.
When a Gypsy casts a "curse" what the Gypsy has actually done was to send a prayer request to the Grigori Angels, asking that the Grigori send a DiJinn to haunt the person who wronged the Gypsy. The Grigori will pick out a DiJinn that is best suited for irritating the person in question, and send it to live with that person. The DiJinn will them imprint itself to that person and follow them wherever they go and cause bad things to happen to them on a daily basis.
Working with DiJinn is dangerous because DiJinn are wild and feral and, while they will obey their masters "for a time" they are often known to become bored with haunting a single person and can instead take over a whole house (very common) or even several generations of a family (a generational curse) and can even turn on their master and haunt them instead of the person intended (curse backfiring or karmic retribution).
VERY FEW magic using practitioners will work with DiJinn. Wiccans and white witches go so far are to strictly forbid it.
Gypsies however, have a long and close relationship to DiJinn and it is one of the primary reasons Gypsy Magic Arts is so very different (and seen by white men as more powerful) than Magic Arts used by other cultures. It is also why Gypsy Protection Spells are often described as Gypsy "curses".
Gypsies protect themselves by enlisting in the help of DiJinn. DiJinn protect Gypsies by causing "bad luck" to befall the evil person. Thus white men falsely assume that when a Gypsy asks a DiJinn to protect the Gypsies from white men, that that is the Gypsy casting a "curse" on the white men.
#4: Gypsies have VERY distinct ethnic clothing.
FAKE Gypsies wear scarves on their heads, often purple and edged with gold coins.
REAL Gypsies descend from a Hebrew (Israel) Muslim (Ishmael) Culture, that was based in Persian (Iran) and converted to (Scottish) Christianity in the 1300's.
The culture of REAL Gypsies blends Jewish, Persian, Muslim, and Gnostic (Medieval/Enochian) Christian practices and as such the women sometimes wear veils (hijab) same as any other Muslim women. They DO NOT wrap their heads in scarves covered in coins. The veiling of women is a sacred part of Gypsy religious practices and comes from their Muslim roots.
Gypsy women OFTEN wear Jewish style veils or Muslim style hijabs, because of their religion. They do this to be in humility in the presences of the higher beings. Because of their persian roots, Gypsies wear hijabs that are heavily embroidered and beaded.
When a REAL Gypsy woman is veiled, it looks like THIS:
Anyone claiming they are "Gypsy" and wearing coins and wrapped their heads in scarves, is a white man playing Golliwog to scam you out of your money, while making a mockery of the hijab.
When white men mock the "head scarfs" of Gypsies, they mock a very sacred holy garment, the hijab, worn as part of our faith.
FAKE Gypsies wear big tired tribal belly dance skirts, with lots of ruffles.
REAL Gypsies descend from Persia and wear long kimono-like silk robes. The look is VERY distinctive and resembles a mix of Japanese kimono and Indian sari. It literally screams "I'm from the Middle East!"
Anyone claiming they are "Gypsy" and wearing lots frilly skirted ruffles, is a white man playing Golliwog to scam you out of your money.
FAKE Gypsies wear a lot of jewelry.
REAL Gypsies embellish their possessions with jewels: their clothes, their cars, their covered wagons, their swords, their horses....but they RARELY wear actual jewelry (rings, earrings, bracelets, and necklaces)
Anyone claiming they are "Gypsy" and wearing lots of jewelry, is a white man playing Golliwog to scam you out of your money.
One of the absolute WORST mockeries white men make of Gypsy traditions and culture is the "Traditional Gypsy Wedding".
Oh yes, the Gypsy wedding has a lot of super bling, but it ain't ANYTHING like what you see touted about on reality TV.
You want to see what REAL Gypsy wedding dresses look like?
DON'T believe the outright LIES you see on My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding. I watched all episodes of all seasons and there is not even ONE single solitary REAL Gypsy on that show: they are romanies and Travellers every one.
#5: Tarot is NOT a Gypsy practice.
While some Gypsies read cards, they are reading regular playing cards or in recent years Angel cards.
Gypsy folklore teaches that Tarot cards are embedded with dark or evil forces. Gypsy superstition strictly forbids a Gypsy from touching tarot cards.
Anyone claiming they are "Gypsy" and waving a tarot cards in your face, is a white man playing Golliwog to scam you out of your money.
#6: Crystal balls are NOT a Gypsy practice.
Crystal scrying, done in Gypsy style, is by throwing small bright coloured gemstones onto a circle draw in the dirt or painted on a cloth, and reading how the crystals landed. It is NOT done by gazing into a crystal ball.
Anyone claiming they are "Gypsy" and waving a crystal ball in your face, is a white man playing Golliwog to scam you out of your money.
#7: Tea Leaf Reading is NOT a Gypsy practice.
Gypsy religion, folklore, and superstition forbids the drinking of coffee and alcoholic drinks and limits the drinking of tea and soda. Gypsies drink heavy cream (or whole milk when cream is not available). They may also drink water or fruit or vegetable juice. A Gypsy ONLY drinks tea for medicinal reasons, never as a "drink". If a Gypsy wants a hot drink, they drink a "hot chocolate" like drink which is made out of heavy or whipping cream and dark chocolate boiled together.
Coffee, tea, wine, beer, and other alcoholic drinks are very taboo in Gypsy culture, and you will NEVER see a REAL Gypsy using any of these things.
There is no such thing as a "Gypsy Tea Room".
Anyone claiming they are "Gypsy" and waving a tea leaves in your face, is a white man playing Golliwog to scam you out of your money.
#8: Gypsies are farmers.
Gypsies are farmers. They do not live in cities. They grow their own food. They raise horses, goats, chickens, ducks, and rabbits. They live in large tight night families in close communities. They often do not have electricity. They live in a lifestyle that is described by many americans as "very Amish" or "very Mennonite".
#9: Gypsies RARELY associate with white men.
Gypsies RARELY associate with white men. They keep to themselves. The rift between Gypsies and white men is HUGE. The Gypsies have not forgiven the white men for taken their farms from them in Scotland. The Gypsy view of white men is that they are evil, lying, thieving, back stabbing bastards.
Gypsy culture teaches that they are the children of the Nephilim, that they descended from the Grigori Angels who mated with human women. Gypsy culture is full of Angel reverence and human shunning and avoiding contact with humans, especially white humans.
You will RARELY, if ever see a Gypsy in "normal" American society. They live in isolated communities, separated from American society, and keep to themselves, fiercely guarding their families and their land from evil white invaders.
In most cases the only time you will encounter a REAL Gypsy, is when they come out to set up tents as a way to make money to pay taxes on their land or buy supplies they can not make or grow themselves. To the Gypsies, divination is a sacred gift from our Grigori fathers. It is not to be abused. It used to make money in times of need, it not used to attain unnecessary luxuries and riches. Gypsies use it to make money only when it is necessary to do so, it is why you NEVER see Gypsies set up permanent "fortune telling shops" and only sporadically set up tents here and there on rare occasions. For Gypsies it is a sacred thing not to be abused, it is not a career or steady source of income.
Gypsies still strongly believe in their Magic Arts, still believing they have a direct line to the Angels, still seeing their divination practices as sacred communication with their Heavenly Fathers, the ArchAngels of God.
Because of this strong and sacred belief in their Magic Arts, Gypsies carefully guard their Magi Secrets and made deeply upset when their sacred rituals are used and abused by white men. For white men to dress in our sacred robes, pretend to be Gypsies, and use our religious practices as a way to scam others out of their money, is seen by us Gypsies as a horrific blasphemy against our beloved Grigori Angels.
Anyone claiming they are "Gypsy" and waving their psychic skills around as their career and primary source of income, is a white man playing Golliwog to scam you out of your money.
#10: A Gypsy will NEVER claim to be psychic!
One of the biggest red flags to watch for is simply the word "psychic"
For example: "Gypsy Psychic" or "Get Your Psychic Readings From a Real Gypsy"
How many times do you see those phrases tossed around on those 32 million fake sites, by fake "gypsies"?
Yep. It's on every one of them.
So, what's the problem here?
Well, if you've read the rest of this page up to this point, you've probably figured out by now that Gypsies are INSANELY RELIGIOUS - EXTREME FANATICS in regards to their religious practices, to the point that it governs every step they take, every word they say, every shred of fabric they wear, every bit of food they eat, etc.
Gypsies are among the most extremist fanatics on the planet, when it comes to obeying their religious beliefs.
THAT is why seeing the word "psychic" on a so-called "gypsy" website, is a HUGE red flag - because it contradicts one of the larger rules governing Gypsy religious practices.
For someone to claim they have "psychic powers" implies that they are "special" or otherwise above other men, to the point of being god-like.
Gypsies put a lot of importance on the 10 Commandments and one of them says "Have no other god's before me." To make oneself a "god" by claiming to have "god-like powers" is seen as a grave sin in Gypsy culture.
A Gypsy will NEVER claim to have the powers of god, and therefore will never claim to be psychic.
To call one-self psychic, is a great sin in Gypsy culture.
That is a very important fact to consider when looking for a REAL Gypsy fortune teller.
Of course, you must consider as well, the fact that no REAL Gypsy calls themselves a fortune teller either. Once again, this is a red flag that tells you, you are dealing with a fake "gypsy".
A Gypsy sees themself only as a vessel by which a Holy Being speaks. That is the very meaning of the word divination, after all: to receive divine messages or guidance.
To claim one is psychic, is to say that one has the power to see into the future. Gypsies do not believe humans can possess such a power, believing that such power comes from the Divine and only through communicating with the Divine can one know things yet to come.
