Across the western world there is a growing epidemic of identity disorder. Here is a woman who believes she is a cat. She crawls around on all fours and hisses at dogs.
She believes that she was "born in the wrong species." She is just one of many cases of "trans-species-ism". There are people who suffer from Clinical lycanthropy, a delusion where the affected person believes he or she can transform into a non-human animal (think werewolves). And in recent years, there has been a growing number of people who have come to believe that they were born vampires and consider themselves members of the "vampiric community."
A 2014 article in The Gay & Lesbian Review, "Vampires Are Us," noted:
What does the 21st century hold? I can see nothing but a continuation of a parallel trajectory for both gays and vampires. No one is really scared of vampires any more, as witness the continuing popularity of the romantic vampires in the ever popular “Twilight” series and in The Vampire Diaries. Similarly, a majority of Americans now favor same-sex marriage, which was a truly scary prospect only a decade ago. President Obama announced his support for marriage equality and was re-elected handily. Gay people, like vampires, have lost their alien status and no longer frighten people—including voters, whose fears cannot be so easily demagogued by right-wing politicians.
Variants of these disorders are popping up every day and include Body integrity identity disorder or BIID...
BIID, also referred to as amputee identity disorder is a psychological disorder in which an otherwise healthy individual feels that they are meant to be disabled. It is not medically recognized by the American Psychiatric Association's DSM-5. BIID is related to xenomelia, "the oppressive feeling that one or more limbs of one's body do not belong to one's self".
BIID is typically accompanied by the desire to amputate one or more healthy limbs. It also includes the desire for other forms of disability, as in the case of a woman who intentionally blinded herself. BIID can be associated with apotemnophilia, sexual arousal based on the image of one's self as an amputee. The cause of BIID is unknown. One hypothesis states that it results from a neurological failing of the brain's inner body mapping function (located in the right parietal lobe) to incorporate the affected limb in its understanding of the body's physical form.
Another type of identity is Gender dysphoria or GID...
Gender dysphoria or gender identity disorder (GID) is the formal diagnosis used by psychologists and physicians to describe people who experience significant dysphoria (distress) with the sex and gender they were born with. Evidence suggests that people who identify with a gender different from the one they were assigned at birth may do so not just due to psychological or behavioral causes, but also biological ones related to their genetics, the makeup of their brains, or prenatal exposure to hormones. GID is classified as a medical disorder by the ICD-10 CM and DSM-5 (called gender dysphoria).
Then there is Erotic target location error (ETLE), a theory advanced by Sexologist Ray Blanchard in 1993. This involves having a sexual preference or strong sexual interest in features that are somewhere other than on one's sexual partners.Wikipedia explains:
The best known examples of erotic target identity inversions are biological males who experience sexual arousal in response to imagining themselves as women (called autogynephilia), but at least one case of anatomic autoandrophilia has also been reported. Whereas gynephilia refers to the sexual preference for women, autogynephilia refers to a male's sexual interest in being a woman. Autogynephilia can be associated with gender dysphoria and gender identity disorder, discontent with one's biological sex and the desire to undergo surgery for sex reassignment and permanently take on a role and life of the other sex. A male with sexual arousal based on temporarily taking on the appearance or role of a woman is transvestic fetishism.
And there is the case of this 52 year-old Steve Sweeney-look-alike who abandoned his family because he believes he is a six year-old girl:
Enter the New Jersey Legislature with its Democrat-majority in search of more LGBTV(ampires) money. With same-sex marriage no longer an issue, they want to sell some new legislation in return for campaign cash. So they have come up with this gem of an idea, called S-283.
If S-283 is passed, a man (with a penis) can become a legal "woman," simply by saying that he is seeing a therapist of some kind and then re-submitting his birth certificate to reflect his "new sex." No surgery required.
And it won't be recorded as an "amended" birth certificate. It will be filed as the original. The government will pretend that it can go back in time to correct the "perception" of the doctors and nurses who saw a child with a penis and checked "male." The government will, in fact, lie and pretend that the attending physician checked "female" when, of course, he did not.
Why is S-283 at the top of the Democrats' agenda when child poverty is at a 50-year high? Because there are some very rich men -- billionaires, in fact -- who want to normalize their behavior or the behavior of someone close to them. They have the money to buy what they want and that includes legislation. In America, bribing legislative bodies is legal. Don't let anyone try to tell you it isn't.
