R: and what's up with we producing girlcum again anyway? we hadn't wet our panties in precum in a long long time.
R: I'm aware that pombagiras are known to make AMAB people lactate through possession. is this anything to do with you?
C: hon let me explain the metaphysics of this here:
C: the more we consume the more we have :giggle:
isn't it funny tho that DID is defined as "having this and this and this symptom, _except_ if this is part of a cultural practice, then the exact same symptoms are not a disease"
like nobody will say that of a body disease? "these itches mean you have chickenpox, unless having chickenpox is part of your culture"
we found some articles that compare DID with shamanism/mediunity, including the Brazilian kind. the common results seem to be that the, let's say, neutral symptoms (multiple identities, amnesia etc.) are the same in both, but the "negative" ones (trauma association, distress, negative impact on life etc.) happen only in DID.
I feel like there's a kind of condescending subtext to the medical field, like, "oh these primitive people treat DID in a superstitious way and then I guess that's a backwards way of making a social space for ppl with the condition, but we don't want to be ~intolerant~, so let's say that when they do it it's not a disease"
but if the "negative" effects of multiple identity (using this term on purpose) come not from the condition itself but from the way society treats ppl who are this way,
then I don't think it's a mental disease, I think it's the scientific enlightened industrial capitalist society that has an unacknowledged disease.
I'm not saying all you rational skeptics should believe in spirits and whatnot. But maybe if there was _some_ kind of allowance for DID people to be safely out about it and acknowledged and respected, then maybe the "distressing" parts of the condition might just resolve as if by magic and presto, it's not a mental disease anymore? Just my R$0,02 here. (B.)
