    Body Integrity Identity Disorder

    Body integrity dysphoria (BID, also referred to as body integrity identity disorder, amputee identity disorder and xenomelia, formerly called apotemnophilia) is a disorder characterized by a desire to be disabled or discomfort with being able-bodied beginning in early adolescence and resulting in harmful consequences. BID appears to be related to somatoparaphrenia. People with this condition may refer to themselves as "transabled".

    Idiots! There are far too many genuine afflictions in this world to spend time worrying about some self-harmers.

    "I want to be permanently paralysed" ... "I'm going to cut my leg off" ... yeah, okay then, go ahead!

    It's beyond me why someone would want to intentionally become mutilated/blind/paralysed. I'm suspecting it will become more socially acceptable as a result of the popularity of body modification industry and transsexuality movement. Because if it's acceptable to cut off the genitals and "transform" into a "woman", or cut off the nipples to look like a doll or genderless alien, it's also acceptable to become intentionally amputated or blind. Not to mention we've to think about the effect of those peoples becoming handicapped. They're purposely exploiting the medical system. And what about their families, who will be forced to become their carers? Why would someone wish for such outcomes on purpose? I'm at a loss for words... Even more shocked that psychologists aid them in this madness...
