@gendercensus Interesting. I get the concern about fae curses, though I personally feel like otherkin people should be able to use the pronouns.
I'm "ugh" about qualifying it as "cultural appropriation" though. It's certainly isn't the same stakes as for PoC, but I wouldn't know what to call it.
To me it sounds like indeed some people on tiktok made some discourse that wasn't questioned by some (mostly) young people.

@gendercensus Oh and I'm talking from an eclectic pagan non celtic viewpoint.

@gendercensus (Celtic is a bit blurry though, where I come from we definitely have fae legends (Melusine) and it was historically celtic, but we don't speak a celtic language, if that's what matters)
