Introducing “Transableism”

H/T Rod Dreher

As we have already seen with the Otherkin, who are trans people who believe they were mistakenly born into the wrong species, there are no limits to expressive individualism and the unbounded will. The “transabled” are trans people who mutilate themselves because they have come to believe they were mistakenly born with, say, arms and legs, a functioning spinal cord, or two ears and a nose:

“When he cut off his right arm with a “very sharp power tool,” a man who now calls himself One Hand Jason let everyone believe it was an accident.

But he had for months tried different means of cutting and crushing the limb that never quite felt like his own, training himself on first aid so he wouldn’t bleed to death, even practicing on animal parts sourced from a butcher.

“My goal was to get the job done with no hope of reconstruction or re-attachment, and I wanted some method that I could actually bring myself to do,” he told the body modification website ModBlog.

His goal was to become disabled.

People like Jason have been classified as ‘‘transabled’’ — feeling like imposters in their bodies, their arms and legs in full working order.

“We define transability as the desire or the need for a person identified as able-bodied by other people to transform his or her body to obtain a physical impairment,” says Alexandre Baril, a Quebec born academic who will present on “transability” at this week’s Congress of the Social Sciences and Humanities at the University of Ottawa.

“The person could want to become deaf, blind, amputee, paraplegic. It’s a really, really strong desire.”

The Daily Mail had a more comprehensive story on this a few years ago:

“A Cambridge University educated research scientist is so desperate to live the life of a wheelchair-bound person she is prepared to pay a doctor help her become disabled.

Since childhood, Chloe Jennings-White has made several attempts at injuring herself so she can finally climb into her own wheelchair.

In 2010 she even found a doctor overseas willing to help her become disabled by cutting her sciatic and femoral nerves, but she could not afford the £16,000 costs. …

She fantasises about having a car crash without hurting anyone else just so she can damage her own legs.

‘Any time when I’m driving I sort of conjure up accident scenarios in my mind where I will become paraplegic,’ she admitted. ….

It’s time to suit up, Social Justice Warriors!

  1. It’s time to turn off the grid for six months and have a nation-wide colon-cleansing.

    Way too many fucked-up shitbags.

  2. I get a little depressed every now and then. Things just seem to be coming apart. So I’ll save this article and look at it when I’m depressed and know that however bad things get I will never be as fucked up as these people.

  3. Several years ago, two deaf lesbians wanted to engineer the birth of a deaf child. I don’t know if they were successful, but the actress Nanette Fabray, who has a serious hearing impairment, raised hell about this damn fool idea. I hope her protest was successful in stopping this planned child abuse.

  4. This is demonic possession. There is no other way to describe the utter idiocy of a person wishing to mutilate themselves.

    Of course, this includes all ‘Gender/Sex Re-assignment Surgery’ to start.

    But the willful mutilation of arms, legs, hands, etc. is like the parable of the Demoniac, and the Gadarene swine.
    “MY name is Legion, for we are many.”

    “And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains: because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: neither could any man tame him.

    5 And always, night and day, he was in the mountains, and in the tombs, crying, and cutting himself with stones. But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped him, and cried with a loud voice, and said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the most high God? I adjure thee by God, that thou torment me not. For he said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit.

    And he asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many. And he besought him much that he would not send them away out of the country. Now there was there nigh unto the mountains a great herd of swine feeding. And all the devils besought him, saying, Send us into the swine, that we may enter into them. And forthwith Jesus gave them leave. And the unclean spirits went out, and entered into the swine; and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea, (they were about two thousand,) and were choked in the sea.” – Mark 5

  5. Of course, these things are saddening, BUT – individual manias, of every kind and description, have been with man since the beginning, if the history books are to be believed.

    Society, technology, and Journalism however, have changed, and perhaps that makes these manias seem more ‘new’ and more threatening.

  6. So, in a few years “Transableism”, like homosexuality, will be considered “normal”. Damned be he who disagrees.

    Best wishes on your goal of secession.

  7. What fraction of society do these people represent? 1 in a million, perhaps less? They are inconsequential. There have always been crazies among all the way down through history. It’s troubling if the media valorizes these people though.

  8. This transabled stuff is truly disturbing, can a white man from southern Illinois be part of your secession movement?

  9. My gut feeling is that almost all of these people are white. Are there any transabled blacks? Very few, I’m sure.

    Why do I say this? Because I think this sort of mental illness is related to the pathological altruism that also afflicts mainly whites. If you’ve gone so far as to hate your own race, then it’s not too far of a stretch to also hate your own body.

  10. What about Trans-divine? Those who were born just ordinary men and women but always have believed themselves to be divine instead.

  11. Harold, that ‘Trans-divine’ thing would be WHITE PEOPLE, and ONLY white people.

    “Adam” – ‘fair, white, able to [visibly] blush – what the Hebrew name means, in Genesis.
    ‘Theosis” – becoming god-like; having the fulness of Divinity dwelling within one.
    A fundamental characteristic of the “White Man’s Religion” – i.e., Patristic, European, Conciliar Christianity. (Not multiculti, race-mixing protestant-schism)

    Amerindians in Central America thought the first White men WERE Gods; Cortez, etc..

    The Image of the Risen Christ St. John sees in Revelation shows the ‘White Christ;’ the name the once-pagan Vikings called their new Lord and Saviour:

    “And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. 14 His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; 15 And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.”

    Please note the Scripture says: a) his skin is like burnished bronze (whites suntan this color) b) his hair was like wool (blond hair in the sun glows white) and c) his eyes were ‘like a flame of fire.’ (at the heart of any flame, the hottest part of the flame is… BLUE)

    A tan, blondhaired, blue-eyed GOD Incarnate, taking his Genetics from the BVM, who was of the Twelve Tribes of Israel. Which is why the Italians painted the Virgin with blue eyes and blond hair much of the time. THEY KNEW.

    As Anna Russell used to say, ‘I’m not making this up, you know!’
    He who has eyes to see, let him see.

  12. jewamongyou _ have enjoyed your comments elsewhere (Amren?)

    I think you’ll find OD a decent place and you’re welcome to comment here as long as you don’t try to muscle in takeover.

    We’re honest about who we are – Southern separatists, race realists. We’re not obsessed with Jews or anyone else. We do on occasion note the bad actions of individual Jewish people and groups, but it’s not like the are the only bad people abusing us.

    Well, take care.

  13. Thanks, Jack Ryan. I’ll try to comment more. “Muscle in takeover?” No need to worry about that; we share most of the same goals, and I’m not the “takeover” type of guy.

  14. jack ryan says,”…We’re not obsessed with Jews or anyone else. We do on occasion note the bad actions of individual Jewish people and groups, but it’s not like the are the only bad people abusing us…”

    Speak for yourself. I don’t believe the forces disintegrating my country would have even half the force they do without Jewish help.
