A ‘transpecies’ woman who identifies herself as an elf divided Good Morning Britain’s viewers yesterday.
The woman in name is Kimberel Eventide from Chicago, and she says that she’s an elf trapped in a human’s body. She identifies herself as an “Otherkin”, which is a term that describes people who feel a connection to mythical creatures and do not consider themselves entirely human.
Ms. Eventide revealed to Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid that she connected with J R R Tolkien’s characters after reading The Lord of the Rings.
The opinions among viewers, however, have been divided. Some thought that it’s cool to have your own beliefs, while many others questioned whether the whole interview was just a “late April Fool’s joke”.
Susanna introduced the guest somewhat skeptically, and she told viewers that transpecies means that you can e anything from a unicorn to a mermaid or a dragon.
Kimberel told the viewers that she identifies as an Otherkin, which is something like an elf. She has a human body, but her soul belongs to another species, and it’s all about a way of life and about being connected to nature.
“It’s not about the ears, it’s about who you are on the inside and how you carry yourself.” – she noted.
Morgan asked her if she’s serious about her identification, and she said that Otherkins are “unique humans on earth” and said that people are now questioning “what is a human” more and more.
He then asked her if she is married to another elf, or if she’s allowed to be intimate with humans, and she revealed that she’s married to a non-elf, “very human” man. However, if they were to have a baby, it would be a mix of “Elvin soul within the human body”.
Ahead of the interview, Morgan suggested that he too had a new identity for himself.
The controversial 54-year-old host said that he would like to announce that he now identifies as skinny, even though he’s been carrying a bit of timber, and he said that he’s one of the world’s first “trans-slenders”.
