I'd say - ignore those websites. Cheesy  It sounds like people being very full of themselves.

To me it always sounds like they are claiming 'witch' as an otherkin type of identity - they are it, they were born it, they can't explain the difference in terms non-'kinwitches would understand, yet say they can recognize each other.  Except they rarely do recognize other witches of this type, if the arguments (I am Witch! No you're not you're just a magic user!)  I've seen are anything to go by.

However, I always seem to get chased away with bricks and fire when I make this comparison on those sites.  I don't quite understand why they (almost invariably) look down on Otherkin while making the exact same type of claim for themselves.

Blessed are the cracked, for it is they who let in the light.

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in
