DISUM 28-03-2018

I’m feeling sick today, so here is a few nauseating news from an equally diseased world:

1. Army of fragmented personalities forget to eat, they are still fat.

Couple have more than 400 personalities between them – and struggle with everyday tasks because they’re ‘all fighting to be heard’ – The Mirror 28.03.2018

[…] for Kai, 27, and Franz, 26, a simple shop is almost impossible because there are dozens of other people getting involved with the decision making.

They have both been diagnosed with dissociative identity disorder , formally known as multiple personality disorder, and between them have over 400 personas, called ‘alters’.

There is no telling when alters will appear and they can be male, female, young or old and have accents from all over the world, each with their ownbackstoryy.

[…] Eventually, Franz’s alter Damien emerges and cooks them a meal. Sometimes the couple have gone a whole day without eating because the wrong alters are present.

You know, when I said DID would be the next frontier of the oppressed, I WAS JOKING.


 

2. I’m sure there’s a pun somewhere, but I can’t find it right now.


 

3. Chaotic Evil dipshit refuses to change when good people try to help him, still goes postal. Educators are perplexed.

I tried to befriend Nikolas Cruz. He still killed my friends – The New York Times 27.03.2018

My first interaction with Nikolas Cruz happened when I was in seventh grade. I was eating lunch with my friends, most likely discussing One Direction or Ed Sheeran, when I felt a sudden pain in my lower back. The force of the blow knocked the wind out of my 90-pound body; tears stung my eyes. I turned around and saw him, smirking. I had never seen this boy before, but I would never forget his face. His eyes were lit up with a sick, twisted joy as he watched me cry.

[…] This deeply dangerous sentiment, expressed under the #WalkUpNotOut hashtag, implies that acts of school violence can be prevented if students befriend disturbed and potentially dangerous classmates. The idea that we are to blame, even implicitly, for the murders of our friends and teachers is a slap in the face to all Stoneman Douglas victims and survivors.

A year after I was assaulted by Mr. Cruz, I was assigned to tutor him through my school’s peer counseling program. […]

Despite my discomfort, I sat down with him, alone. I was forced to endure his cursing me out and ogling my chest until the hourlong session ended. When I was done, I felt a surge of pride for having organized his binder and helped him with his homework.

Looking back, I am horrified. I now understand that I was left, unassisted, with a student who had a known history of rage and brutality.

I should add that I don’t necessarily believe in the veracity of the news I post. Interest, not truthfulness, is the criteria I follow.


 

4. When you admit something that is worse than the accusation:

Spread of Wahhabism was done at request of West during Cold War – Saudi crown prince 28.03.2018 Rusia Today 28.03.2018

The Saudi-funded spread of Wahhabism began as a result of Western countries asking Riyadh to help counter the Soviet Union during the Cold War, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman told the Washington Post.

Speaking to the paper, bin Salman said that Saudi Arabia’s Western allies urged the country to invest in mosques and madrassas overseas during the Cold War, in an effort to prevent encroachment in Muslim countries by the Soviet Union.

He added that successive Saudi governments had lost track of that effort, saying “we have to get it all back.” Bin Salman also said that funding now comes mostly from Saudi-based “foundations,”rather than from the government.


 

5. Assange may have survived everything, from the CIA to MI5 mind-scrambling rays, but he won’t survive the Spanish-Chilean Inquisition

 

Catalonia is indeed a political graveyard.

One thought on “DISUM 28-03-2018

  1. Many years ago I was briefly active in several on-line support groups for Dissociative Identity Disorder. What I found then (shortly after the turn of the century) was that such groups tended to be dominated by a very outspoken group that claimed that dissociative alters were real people and should be treated as such.

    Since I was looking for help in overcoming my mental illness and not a group of people insisting that other people must accept my illness as reality, I quickly learned to avoid such groups.

    I can see DID being the next big cause of the Social Justice crowd. It’s honestly no crazier than the current obsession with gender identity disorder and, in fact, there is a great deal of overlap between the groups. A lot of what is called “genderfluid” now is dissociation.
