they’re fucking retarded.
Not ‘mentally ill’ fucking retarded, but ‘speshul shnoflaek’ self-imposed self-fucking-retardation. Wow.
I just looked up DID so I could get some points to directly show that they’re doing this to themselves if they’re saying that they have a split personality with a character from a work of fiction, and lol, “Factitious Disorder” is linked right in the first paragraph on Wikipedia and it directly relates to this situation.
“Factitious disorders are conditions in which a person acts as if they have an illness by deliberately producing, feigning, or exaggerating symptoms. Factitious disorder by proxy is a condition in which a person deliberately produces, feigns, or exaggerates symptoms in a person in their care. Münchausen syndrome, a severe form of factitious disorder, was the first kind identified, and was for a period the umbrella term for all such disorders. People with this condition may produce symptoms by contaminating urine samples, taking hallucinogens, injecting themselves with bacteria to produce infections, and other such similar behaviour. They might be motivated to perpetrate factitious disorders either as a patient or by proxy as a caregiver to gain any variety of benefits including attention, nurturance, sympathy, and leniency that are unobtainable any other way.”
Obviously it’s a lot easier to fake a mental disorder because no physical evidence needs to be provided. They can just claim to have it and get mad if you call them out on their bullshit.
