Alienkin and Starseeds
Starseeds are a controversial topic when relating to alienkin. Many consider starseeds to be a subtype of alienkin, while others believe starseeds to be entirely seperate, or even not otherkin at all. The latter may be caused by the new age roots of the starseeds.
The main difference between alienkin and starseeds is that alienkin most often consider themselves to work by the usual spiritual and mental theories of most otherkin, while starseeds can often include more unusual theories, such as being sent for a benelovent or malevolent reason, or even having been sent to earth as alien young.
