The story of Jewel Shuping demonstrates that there simply are no limits to the mental disorder of liberalism. Jewel is the woman suffering from a somewhat new affliction dubbed “body identity integrity disorder” (BIID) who chose to blind herself because “she always felt she was meant to be blind.”
The most amazing thing about this story is that after years of “dreaming of being blind” and “blind-simming” she found a sympathetic psychologist to help her fulfill her dream. Seriously - he poured drain cleaner in her eyes in order to blind her. It worked. Why isn’t he in jail? I guess the new parameters of the healing professions is to indulge the victim’s fantasies rather than address the underlying cause. Which seems pretty liberal of them.
Butt Jewel understands if you don’t understand – which is damn liberal of her:
"I do understand why some people would be angry about a person giving themselves a disability.
"They think it's a ploy to get social security, or a waste of advocacy that would be better focused on people with an involuntary disability.
"But I feel that the way I became disabled doesn’t really matter
"If someone were to say that its fundamentally selfish to blind myself, I would say that it’s selfish to refuse treatment to somebody with a disorder.
"This is not a choice, it’s a need based on a disorder of the brain." Daily Mail
If I were to suggest that mental health issues ought to be diagnosed and treated rather than obliged, does that make me a bad person? Or simply non-liberal? (not that there’s a difference)
BHO suggests that “common sense gun control laws” would end the current rash of mass shootings. May I humbly suggest that even more effective might be a common sense approach to dealing with mental illness; you know, like we used to: lock them up if they show signs of being a threat to themselves or others.
Oh, and regarding that “my body my choice” meme? Here’s my choice: the Bodyguard 38 – by Smith and Wesson.
Because I also choose life - and I want to ensure that the chalk lines the police draw when they show up aren’t drawn around MY body.
