Ok, this may be my most controversial post I've made yet, but please, PLEASE, resist the intense burning urge to grab your torches and pitchforks. Leave your crosses and holy water at home because I'm no witch or demon, I do not wish to insult, only to educate. Ever since we went to 18+ there's been, at least to my knowledge, less "How Do I become incontinent" threads. It's no secret that many on this site don't like those kinds of threads, and people who actually are IC find them outright offensive. I'll empathize and say that it's hard not to judge when someone wants to be a in a position you don't and it's easy to feel jealous of someone wanting to choose something that you had no say in deciding. For most, this a just a phase that many younger AB/DLs out there fantasize about but eventually grow out of. But what about those who didn't grow out of it? Where's the support and understanding for them? I'm here to educate everyone on the best explanation for this phenomenon I have come up with.
Body Integrity Identity Disorder (BIID) is a body image dysphoria commonly associated with amputee wannabes. However as more research is being done there are those affected by BIID find themselves identifying as having a host of various other non-amputee impairments including but not limited to: para/quadroplegia, blindness, deafness, muteness, and yes, even incontinence. Being a sufferer of both Gender Dysphoria and BIID I can attest to similarities between both. The following website has more detailed descriptions of BIID: http://transabled.org/
The similarities between the two are detailed here: http://transabled.org/thoughts/a-com...ansableism.htm
Now before you go taking aim at me, I actually am incontinent to some degree as I have partial fecal incontinence related to Autism related GI issues. while not enough to really need full time protection for it, it is an inconvenience and would prefer If I did wear protection. Anyway this should serve as a basic introduction to BIID and I will elaborate more on it at a later time.
