    Default Body integrity identity disorder


    So I was watching this video again, when I remembered this odd condition I read about.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Body_i...ntity_disorder

    When Manson gets to the hospital, his arm is seemingly, by willing allowance, cut off.

    If you don't feel like clicking the link:


    Body integrity identity disorder (BIID, also referred to as amputee identity disorder)[1] is a psychological disorder in which an otherwise healthy individual feels that they are meant to be disabled.[2][3][4][5] It is not medically recognized by the American Psychiatric Association's DSM-5. BIID is related to xenomelia, "the oppressive feeling that one or more limbs of one's body do not belong to one's self".[6]

    BIID is typically accompanied by the desire to amputate one or more healthy limbs. It also includes the desire for other forms of disability, as in the case of a woman who intentionally blinded herself.[2] BIID can be associated with apotemnophilia, sexual arousal based on the image of one's self as an amputee. The cause of BIID is unknown. One hypothesis states that it results from a neurological failing of the brain's inner body mapping function (located in the right parietal lobe) to incorporate the affected limb in its understanding of the body's physical form.

    Sufferers of BIID are uncomfortable with a part of their body, such as a limb, and feel confident that removing or disabling this part of their body will relieve their discomfort. Sufferers may have intense feelings of envy toward amputees. They may pretend that they are an amputee, both in public and in private. Sufferers experience the above symptoms as being strange and unnatural. They may try to injure themselves to require the amputation of that limb. They are generally ashamed of their thoughts and may try to hide them from others, including therapists and health care professionals.[citation needed]

    The majority of BIID sufferers are white middle-aged males, although this discrepancy may not be nearly as large as previously thought.[7] The most common[clarification needed] request is an above-the-knee amputation of the left leg, but it may also involve the arms, manifest itself as a need for paralysis, or even involve the senses, such as hearing or vision.

    A sexual motivation for being or looking like an amputee is called apotemnophilia.[8][9] In addition, apotemnophilia should not be mistaken for acrotomophilia, which describes a person who is sexually attracted to other people who are already missing limbs.[10] However, many of the people who experience one also experience the other.[11]


    Prosthetic limbs and disfigurement were a common theme in his early works. I wonder if there was any connection to this or this thread is simply the musings of a sleep deprived weirdo.

    The song "I Don't Like the Drugs (But the Drugs Like Me), was about a couple of things. People being forced onto and educated on drugs such as Ritali-n and other psychiatric medications.That and how once a Person is under the influence of pharmaceuticals, how easy it is to indoctrinate them, make them FEEL and perceive anything out of that "Prescribed Reality" to be disfigured, distorted and punishable by the "Paranoia Police.". It wasn't literally about what you said it was, but you did make some good observations/comments. Good Job!

    How do you know any of that for sure? I'm not sure that's how art works, man.

    For the same reason a lot of other users who comment on and contribute to the Analyses section do.
