seriously? we're reviving a 7 year old thread here? well alright then, guess ill weigh in with my opinion, before the thread continues to get all
those atypical close minded "bash the guy whose weird because i dont understand him" type posts that are so very common
it could also just be a fetish
this is a form of body integrity identity disorder which is the same disorder that a transvestite/transsexual has in which they dont feel like they
are the person they want to be or ought to be, they feel disconnected from themselves, and believe that undergoing the change will make them happier
and in almost all cases it does,
if it makes them happier, then why should we judge? and tell them there is something wrong with them?
the reason a doctor would perform an amputation on someone who medically doesn't need it is the thought that they psychologically do! if someone is
depressed and tormented for years and years on end because they just want to get rid of that arm, and they finally have it done, they likely (as is
most cases) are far happier and depression leaves them, thus it is thought that to live without the arm but happy is far more healthy then to live
with the arm and sad.
and the reason you dont hear about it to much is cause the obviously dont want people to know these feeling of theirs, gee i wonder why, maybe the
judging criticizing lack of understanding the people here in this thread have expressed is a good example, "these people are sick" "definitely
something wrong with that person" "they need help" "must have some screws loose" etc etc these are very common insults thrown at people who
are not understood by others,
all i have to say is, why do you give a fcK? if it does not harm others then it is none of your business if someone wishes to harm themselves,
everyone owns their own bodies and ought to have the right to do whatever the hell they want with it,
same reasoning why i think suicide being made illegal is idiotic and not the mark of a free country/society,
its my life ill do what i want with it, shame on anyone who would judge and say what others ought to do with their own lives, who are you to judge
such things? all that ought to be kept in check is harm against others, if it does not harm others then no one should judge you for harming
yourself out of desire, whatever brings you happiness, do it, no matter how odd it may seem to be to all those that "dont understand"
