Species dysphoria is the name for the experience of being uncomfortable with your body due to your kintype/s. Not every otherkin feels species dysphoria, though most otherkin feel it to some degree. It may accompany "astral limbs"/supernumerary phantom limbs. An otherkin experiencing species dysphoria may feel trapped, "wrong", broke, confused, panicked, anxious, frustrated, or any other number of negative emotions. Species dysphoric episodes may be triggered by many things, but common triggers include experiencing trolls making fun of a kintype or source, experiencing or watching a kintype being harmed/hurt/dying, being unable to properly express a kintype, or being seperated/distant from things relating to a kintype.
