Psychiatric Politics: Transvestism and Gender Identity Disorder - POLL inside this post please vote!
The following in essence describes the mental heath issues and underlying disorders that persons who suffer from the thought that they are transgendered. The following essay does not cover the obvious such as, MPD (multiple Personality Disorder) or the spectrum of disorders found within Schizophrenia.

Apotemnophilia or Body Integrity Identity Disorder (BIID)


In its most extreme form Apotemnophilia is characterized by individuals who experience a strong desire for the removal of healthy limbs. There is also a lesser form of the disorder. With the secondary variety apotemnophiliacs present as 'pretend' amputees, often going to considerable
lengths to conceal limbs in attempt to appear as if the appendages had been removed. In BIID jargon the latter group are known as 'wannabes.' Apotemnophiliacs use the term 'Amputee Identity Disorder' (AID) to describe their fixations. The usage intentionally parallels the GID diagnosis in an attempt to derive legitimacy by association.
For example BIID discourse associates the desire for limb removal with male to female genital reconstruction, which is interpreted by BIID proponents as amputation of healthy tissue. (below) But apotemnophilia can extend way past limb removal. Sometimes spinal damage is requested because the BIID patient identifies as a paraplegic. Castration may be demanded when a male targets his testicles as superfluous. Female apotemnophiliacs may request the removal of one or
both breasts for the same reason. Demands for surgical blindness or deafness are not unknown!

To equate the disorder with GID, (Gender Identity Disorder) apotemnophiliacs have constructed a comparative rationalization that parodies transgenderism, and associates BIID with primary or true (HBS) transsexualism. Their arguments do not recognize the pseudo-scientific nature of transgenderism, or that many, if not most, primary transsexuals regard it as irrelevant to their own
experience. As if to complete the parody, parallels are drawn between transsexualism (which they see as a form of BIID) and transvestism (as alike to wannabes)
This is a cut from an Apotemnophilia website. (Note the use of 'AID' or identity disorder, terminology.)

"AID appears to develop in the early years, usually between the ages of 5 and 15. Most sufferers have a well-formed impression of their desired body image by the time they reach their teens."

And just a little further down:
“Other groups of patients who may seek amputation include those with factitious disorder (Munchausen’s syndrome) and body dysmorphic disorder (BDD). Those with BDD perceive the limb as being defective in some way, in contrast to patients with AID who see the limb as being normal but extra to their perceived body image. It seems that AID patients are similar to those transsexuals who amputate their genitalia in order to achieve their desired body image."1

The BIID parody has its champions. Self professed autogynephilic, Anne Lawrence, writes: “Body Integrity Identity Disorder (BIID), has sometimes been regarded as a paraphilia (apotemnophilia). BIID appears similar in some ways to gender dysphoria or transsexualism, which is termed Gender Identity Disorder (GID) in the DSM-IV. Persons with BIID and GID both experience a profound sense of wrong embodiment and seek surgical assistance to modify their bodies”.sic 2 3

I reply not as I wish to communicate with you but to set the record straight. I am in deed not your darling, and to think about this as being about you further supports the greater numbers understanding of you as being either paranoid and delusional, or exceedingly prideful and self centered. This is best expressed and communicated here on GLP as you being an attention whore. A rose by any other name.
