Bob Dylan “reinvented” himself to at least some extent.

Precisely Blabs. Rachel actually introduced a new term called transracialism. it's so new spell check hasn't caught up :lol:

Just like how gay people have always lied by pretending to be straight.

Once you learn about oppression and how gay and trans people would get beaten up or killed or harassed, etc. It's more understandable why they would pretend. It's justified because it was so they wouldnt be discriminated, murdered, beaten, forced into conversion therapy and don't forget, trans people used to get hospitilized for if they dared to be who they were. It was also illegal to live as thd other gender.

It was all very brutal to be gay or trans. So the only way was to pretend so you protected yourself.

I agree with Blabs. Since when did it become illegal to darken your skin?



I don't think that was ever an issue. The issue is she lied about her past and heritage.

People are still pulling that stunt? I would have thought high functioning autism as a fad had run its course by now.

I'd be very curious how many people 'faking' autism actually end up meeting the diagnostic criteria. Basically, how many undiagnosed kids had ASD become a special interest, believed they were intentionally faking in some context (or even were) but also could have genuinely received a diagnosis (just maybe not as severe).

I'm sure that happens a lot.

Maybe contempt isn't the correct response from us, if they're ultimately 'us' too. Even if they're not, you've gotta be some sort of retarded to fake autism, so I'm not even sure the ones who really really are faking it deserve contempt, pity seems more appropriate, or even compassion if it can be mustered.

When Asperger's becomes cool
Quote:
In an interview with The New York Times, the musician Moby talked about how he was a purist when it came to tea, preferring it untainted by milk or sugar. "It might be a function of Asperger's," he said.

"You have Asperger's?" asked the interviewer.

"No," Moby said. "I just like to pretend I do. It makes me sound more interesting."


Police: Woman faked autism in order to sexually assault caregiver

It is a thing. It is probably as rare as white people faking being black.

True its polygenic and polymorphic. The point is for Rachel Dolezal to darken her skin its not like she is becoming a sith lord or an alien. I personally think everyone is over-reacting.


No one said that it did. What they said is that it makes her a fraudster.

Maybe she’ll get “lucky” and find some great-great-great grandparent who happened to be black. Then she wouldn’t be a fraudster according to the Jim Crow laws.

Good point.

And failing that she could...claim that, like everyone else in the human race, her cave man ancestors came out of Africa in the stone age 100 thousand years ago, and therefore she has "Black African ancestry" that way! :D
