There are people who are obsessed about things–one group is these perverts who are worried about their gender.
Body dysmorphism is just an aberrant form of narcissism, an attention getting drama queen expression of neurotic histrionic nonsense.
Yesterday there was a news report on one of the major media outlets (CBS I think) parent of a young child were reported to have decided to change the child’s sex because the child was uncomfortable in its gender.
Freud pushed the crazy theories of infantile sex and such, but guess what–that child was abused by perverted obsessed parents.
A child uncomfortable in its gender–my my. We call that, in our business, Munchausens by proxy–parents use their kids to play out attention-getting and manipulation medical games and get medical attention. Smell of personality disorders like histrionic and narcissistic, and borderline?
When the little miss pageants and the childhood mixed parties started, promoted by helicopter mothers who seemed to have a problem, I knew we were headed down a bad street.
Body dysmorphism comes in many extremes, a few people have been reported asking doctors to make them amputees.
Cross dressing and sex change operations are a symptom and sign of personality disorder and neuroses–these people aren’t crazy–just off on a tangent.
Need to be slapped up side the head and told no but they are encouraged to live out a perverted little fantasy that makes the center of the known universe their obsession.
What the hell is celebrity Bruce Jenner, the perfect male athlete in his day, thinking after having 6 children, 3 wives and two decathalon medals–that he needs to have another round of narcissistic play acting?
Ever strike you that sex fantasy life seems to be a common part of narcissistic politicians and drama kings and queens? Maybe cause they can’t stop thinking about themselves?
Then get a life.
Paul McHugh, good psychiatrist has explained the problem better than I can, discussed here at JS. McHugh, as chief of psychiatry, shut down the Johns Hopkins sex change surgery shop many years ago–could not approve mutilating operations for people with a mental illness. Sex changers are an unhappy bunch, not any better off because they went from cross dressing to losing parts.
To be obsessed about your gender means you got bad friends and family and too much time on your silly hands. Think about sex and gender enough and pretty soon you think about perversions and histrionics.
