I think these people should qualify for some entirely new label of mental illness. "Wishochondriac," or something stupid like that might appropriately label something so incredibly stupid as to Want to be autistic/disabled in some other way, but I suppose they could just be called morons with a healthy dose of eye rolling directed their way when addressing them. :roll:

Don't know enough to have views on transautistic but your definition is not the only one available.

As for transabled , another name for it is Body Integrity Identity Disorder, which is very real although rare.

It's funny how nobody ever wants to have fetal alcohol syndrome, fragile x or downs syndrome or anything like that.

I don't understand the attraction to some nt people for wanting to autistic. I mean don't get me wrong autistic people are really cool but if you wasn't autistic why would you want to be.

i believe it is due to the Infantilization of autistic people and how it is often romanticized

Could be. Like it'd give them an excuse to act like babies.. or feel like they're temple grandin level engineers or something.

I'd bet a dollar it's more likely because they made some mistakes in their life and WISH they had a diagnosis to explain it away vs. accept that they simple f****d up.

Found this definition

Quote:
What is a transautistic individual ?

It refers to someone who want to acquire autism/a form of autism. it can also be used to describe someone who feels they should acquire autism. Transautistic people are not necessarily allistics they can be autistic individuals who want another form of autism.


I don't know what the first sentence actually means.

The second sentence sounds like someone seeking a diagnosis maybe.

I have no idea what another form of autism is unless it's referring to levels.

The group I imagine most identifying as transautistic are white middle class teenage girls who want to feel special and quirky but don't want the actual undesirable parts of autism.

I know someone who lost both his legs and is taking it quite well.
Now there is no doubt he isn't faking a disability!
You can see it with your own eyes beyond a reasonable doubt.
They didn't work very well before he lost them.

There are able bodied folks who...THINK that they are disabled. Thats what I THINK body integrity disorder is.

Then there are able bodied folks who know they are able bodied but WANT to be disabled. That WANT to be lame or crippled because...they think its cool ...or something. Incredible as that sounds there are rare individuals like that. Saw a lady who wanted to parapalegic on TV once.

So if THAT person exists then it wouldnt be surprising that there are some folks who migh WANT to be afflicted with a more subtle handicap ...something more en vogue than just needing braces and a wheel chair. So why not autism?

Takes all kinds to make a world I guess. :roll:

Hard to understand though.

Yes, Some sufferers think for example that their right arm does not match their mental body image so they are essentially disabled with the arm so need it gone (extreme cases of people attempting to fix themselves exist e.g. using liquid nitrogen 8O ).

The definition "allistic that wants to be autistic" sounds like a joke to me. Maybe the website with the definition is a prank? The normal definiton of trans-autistic is a autistic trans person.
