    "Spiked" is a synonym for "increased quite sharply"
    Apology accepted.
    In Smuggos world, only literal to the letter meanings mean anything. Except when he makes arguments of course.

    How the fuck do you manage to work in journalism with such a horrible grasp of language.

    Did you ever stop to think the reason is because your grasp of language is not as good as you think it is?

    now you're just being a dick buddy.

    illness implies it is a disease and thus treatable with enough effort applied. my Autism/Aspergers is not fucking treatable, there is no magic pill, there is no magical therapy that makes it go away, it's literately wired into how my brain works on a fundamental level in terms of what areas of the brains governs behaviours ranging from the complex (thinking patterns) to the mundane (basic movement) and how these areas do, and do not interact with each other.

    you're even fucking implying that with that "might" thrown in, it's quite frankly offensive to imply that you can just "treat away" fundamental aspects of people's personalities and no that fig-leaf justification of "or even should be" doesn't change the underlying implication you're presenting either, "if these people would just take a pill and fuck off from anywhere near me".

    you probably do not hate either group, but your fundamental inability or unwillingness to understand the nature of what's going on is quite frankly offensive, neither gender dystopia or autism can be solved with a "magical pill". hormone therapy, and if opted for, gender reassignment surgery is about aligning reality with the expectation and fundamental understanding of the personality and brain involved, not the other way around.

    just like cognitive behaviour therapy for autistic people is about teaching how to handle situations and understanding "alien" thought-patterns rather than actually doing anything about the underlying condition, because you can't "fix" the underlying condition, that's the whole god-damn point. none of these are markedly different from homosexuality in that regard either.
    So, he is actually not saying any of that. Or being a dick for that matter. If anyone is a dick right now you are honestly closer.
    I've read through his replies like 10 times know, either I have lost my ability to read and understand English or a lot of you are so upset from Christan Values Crusade representative Smuggo that you cant get off it and have currently lost your ability to see straight.


    Anyway... go on I guess.
    he's literately implying that a condition i was born with is a mental illness, it's sure as fuck not great being born a "aspie" but it's not something people get locked up in institutions and "medicated" for either, not anymore anyway (hello everything from electroshock to lobotomies, thank fuck i was not born back then). this has nothing to do with Smuggo's descend into becoming a Tory-stereotype and is entirely about the view Losvar presented, Smuggo is however committing himself to the same brain-melting idiocy.

    Well it either deviates enough from the norm to be a mental condition or it's merely differences in personality and doesn't therefore exist, you choose.

    Well it either deviates enough from the norm to be a mental condition or it's merely differences in personality and doesn't therefore exist, you choose.
    so you're either mentally ill or normal in smuggo-land, with no scope for falling outside those norms, lovely, it must be very comforting to view the world entirely in black and white like that. so what am i then ? i haven't made a secret of being diagnosed as a high functioning autist, i have minor-to-severe problems interacting with people in social situations, yet i am also very much running my own life as i see fit including not insignificant success in the professional sphere of my life and a lifestyle, that while some might find deficient especially w.r.t. social contact, suits me fine and i am satisfied with it. so are you perhaps in favour of a medical solution then ? or maybe you think it's possible to remove literal brain differences trough therapy ? do go on! a number of factors place me decidedly outside the norm, above and beyond what can and is accepted as "differences in personality" after all, so by your own sharply cut definition i must be mentally ill after all.

    what you fail to grasp is that there is a sliding scale here ranging from "normal" (a fairly misleading term in the context of mental health, most people are off their rockers to some degree) trough to "completely dysfunctional" such as those with severe Schizophrenia who go all the way down the rabbithole, and that our understanding of what constitutes "normal" is largely defined out from social, rather than clinical norms hence why a range of issues fall into the "mental health trap" without actually belonging there, with homosexuality and gender dystopia being two prominent examples from the last 50-60 years, autism and it's attendant conditions (Aspergers and so forth) are however clear-cut on the other side, being clinically detectable yet with a significant chunk of people who are affected able to function well enough in society.

    so no, being markedly different from the norm doesn't constitute a "mental condition" nor can you simply sweep the whole argument off as a "differences in personality"

    i believe it's called infantile conservatism, you lot from the UK are probably more familiar with it than i am though.

    mental illness
    noun
    noun: mental illness; plural noun: mental illnesses

    a condition which causes serious disorder in a person's behaviour or thinking.

    So yes basically. If you deviate far from the norm you're considered mentally ill, and if not then it's just normal differences in people and ergo not really a condition or disorder or any sort.

    I personally think Aspergers fits in that category, it seems like we've tried to diagnose people for being a bit socially closed off and reclusive rather than any kind of actual identifiable and falsifiable condition.

    Use the broadest and most meaningless definition of a word with strong connotations in order to say something harsh with plausible deniability.

    so you literately want to stick a badge on people like me that closes off not insignificant parts of society off ? both in the literal sense in that there is a number of jobs and positions-of-trust you cannot hold with "mental illness" diagnosis, but also in terms of the implied stigmata such a judgement brings. you realise how much implicit damage that can do to people right ? mental health problems is a significant social taboo with dire ramifications to the extend that i don't actually own up to being a "Aspie" unless A : there is a degree of trust involved and i judge it necessary for that individual to know or B : somebody literately calls me out on on it.

    yes, that's right, i don't actually "own my problems" towards people in person unless pressed because quite frankly a significant chunk of people will behave like you've got some sort of infectious disease if you do so, it's better to be perceived as "a bit odd" and "a bit of a loner", and you honestly want to extend that to such a point where i would be required to inform prospective employers and the like of it up front ?

    remember Smuggo, there are ample medical proof for the Aspergers diagnosis, i took the liberty of linking you a paper that summarizes the subject, not to mention the infantile autism that more people are familiar with have the essentially the same abnormalities in brain-usage structure and use show up in MRI scans, only more pronounced.

    yes, that's right, i don't actually "own my problems" towards people in person unless pressed because quite frankly a significant chunk of people will behave like you've got some sort of infectious disease if you do so, it's better to be perceived as "a bit odd" and "a bit of a loner", and you honestly want to extend that to such a point where i would be required to inform prospective employers and the like of it up front ?

    remember Smuggo, there are ample medical proof for the Aspergers diagnosis, i took the liberty of linking you a paper that summarizes the subject, not to mention the infantile autism that more people are familiar with have the essentially the same abnormalities in brain-usage structure and use show up in MRI scans, only more pronounced.
    You're the one who seems to think mental illness is bad and who is attaching stigma to it.

    Like I said, I don't think Aspergers is a mental illness, I think it's a fabrication designed to keep people with expensive medical training employed.

    and thus, we learned that Smuggo is no longer connected to the reality the rest of us have to deal with, the stigma associated with mental illness is well documented and understood m8.

    this, is not what you implied, here let me help you!



    mental illness
    noun
    noun: mental illness; plural noun: mental illnesses

    a condition which causes serious disorder in a person's behaviour or thinking.

    So yes basically. If you deviate far from the norm you're considered mentally ill, and if not then it's just normal differences in people and ergo not really a condition or disorder or any sort.

    I personally think Aspergers fits in that category, it seems like we've tried to diagnose people for being a bit socially closed off and reclusive rather than any kind of actual identifiable and falsifiable condition.
    Viking, n.:
    1. Daring Scandinavian seafarers, explorers, adventurers, entrepreneurs world-famous for their aggressive, nautical import business, highly leveraged takeovers and blue eyes.
    2. Bloodthirsty sea pirates who ravaged northern Europe beginning in the 9th century.

    Hagar's note: The first definition is much preferred; the second is used only by malcontents, the envious, and disgruntled owners of waterfront property.

    EDIT: I re-read it, basically aspergers fits in the latter category, not a mental illness is what I mean but it's not as clear as intended.

    Also, is this fear of stigma why you are trying to reject the idea trans is a mental illness? Is it purely a labeling issue?

    Hey man, the fact that you can stick someone in a CT scanner and watch their brain as it reacts to stimulus in unusual ways is FAKE NEWS made up by BIG MEDICAL to make money.

    Not mentally ill, just think differently, thanks.

    If this really is some schtick then you're basically doing a Garmon and we all know how fucking sad that is.

    Which is what I'm saying. Literally agreeing with you and you're annoyed by it.

    It obviously is, very similar to ADHD really, just a way to prescribe drugs to children who are either naughty of socially withdrawn, neither of which is a mental illness, they're personality traits. I've met plenty people with both of those and none of them were disagnosed with a condition and are all perfectly normal adults.
