So, the new thing people are coming up with now is "tranabled" and its exactly what it sounds like. People are self-identifying as disabled when they are really not and calling it 'transabled'.

What do you guys think? I think its a big load of nonsense myself, if not mental illness.

Not a topic worth thinking about. Language changes over time and if you can't adapt you fall behind. People are going to modify and use language as they see fit regardless of your personal preferences.

By using and advertising the language as you've done here, you're actually propagating them. Great work, OP!

Apparently it's a real thing, however it seems not to affect too many people. It may sparks some interesting debate about bodily autonomy, but keep in mind it's classified as a mental disorder.

Apart from that as long as you pay for it yourself do what you want with your limbs I guess.

I think you watched some rational^tm youtuber's video being outraged by some tumblrina being an idiot and are inferring a larger trend from anecdotal evidence.

There are people who feel like their limbs don't belong on their body, which often causes severe distress. If the limb actually belongs on their body, and isn't say, a tumour or appendix, and the emotional distress caused by it is severe, it's obviously a mental disorder. I don't see your point in it being nonsense, I don't see real discussion coming out of it, and I don't think you really created this topic for actual discussion, either.

I remember an urban legend about an amputee fetishist who blew his own leg off with explosives.
The story went, that after he did it, he didn't have the fetish anymore.

I used to have a copy of "Amputee Times", a creepy fetish magazine, but Antoinette Rydyr bought it off me for ten dollars Australian because I was so goddamn poor back in the 90's. I regret the sale, because it had one great drawing of a woman with no legs wrestling a woman with no arms, which I feel had a thematic connection with The Crippled Masters, a kung fu film about two similarly trans-abled fighters who strap themselves together to form one mega-person.

I'm more curious why you care so much. The whole right wing mantra is that dictating "acceptable" behavior is fundamentally cancerous to American society, so why do you care about some guy cutting off his own leg?

I thought the entire right wing mantra *was* dictating whats acceptable("degeneracy")

Anyways, this is a matter of people badly hurting themselves because of mental illness, which could and should be prevented. "These people are sick need mental healthcare or they'll fuck themselves up," not "THESE PEOPLE ARE SICK FUCKING FREAKS THANKS LIBERALS"
What if, say, someone who had vivid hallucinations started scratching off their skin because they thought it was covered in bugs, and got agressive and defensive with anyone who tried to stop them? THE BUGS WILL EAT ME
I dont really know enough about gender dysphoria to say. I've heard that alot of people who take hormones or get sex changes end up terribly depressed afterwards and kill themselves, but its conceivable that those are people who didnt actually have real gender dysphoria, just a fetish or other mental illness that led them to adopt the idea that they'd rather be a girl/boy. And I didnt hear that "almost all" did, either, so.

It's the opposite. Untreated gender dysphoria causes depression and suicide. If you want to learn start here: http://www.nhs.uk/Conditions/Gender-dysphoria/Pages/Introduction.aspx

Yeah, this post's kind of important for clearing misconceptions up. The conflation between this topic and transgender people is pretty artificial and rooted in not understanding, well, either of these things.

>>4566 is a post that mentions some of this, I guess. That thread is better for discussion on transgender people, anyway.

Nor would they ever. Seriously, stop with the lies. If you can't make your anti-universal healthcare argument without lying then maybe you should reconsider your position on the subject?

I know that, what I heard was that in alot of cases it gets worse or doesn't get any better after 'transition' treatment. I should look into this more, but that was the basis of the suggestion on the last part of the post.

This is anecdotal, but I've been involved with my local LGBT community for a couple years now, and it seems like every trans person is depressed and most of them suicidal, with HRT and SRS helping slightly, but not much. Because of that experience, I'd be skeptical of anybody claiming that large numbers of suicides in post-treatment people mean that the treatment is contributing to the suicides.

Anyway, back on topic: What treatment options are available to help these people keep from cutting off a limb? What can we actually do about this beyond just physically restraining them indefinitely?

  No.4660

>>4415
I think it must be a mental illness. I know some people are willing to go really far to get attention, but cutting off your limbs like in your picture is just too much, I don't think any sane person would do something like that no matter how much they want attention.

Mods could ban the user, and after resetting their modem and getting a new IP from their ISP, they're right back at it. These chan sites can't ban anonymous users when everybody is anonymous.

Still not convinced trans-disabled is a real thing. The OP is a a screen shot of American show "Jerry Springer".

I don't think its anything more than a handful of special snowflakes, or even a 4chan prank.

I think this is nothing more that a cheap shot at trans gendered individuals by making a false comparison.

  No.4699

I agree. This stinks of the same nonsense 4chan users pulled with "clovergender." They had made fake tumblr accounts and attempted to pass off pedophilia as a gender identity.

Needless to say, they were found out very quickly.
