What Is GID?
Something near and dear to my heart recently is a situation that is not actually classified as a disorder by any true sanctioning body, according to what I have been told. This disorder is GID or Gender Identity Disorder.
GID truly only comes in the one form, but can manifest itself in many ways. Easily the most recognizable form is “Tom-Boy-ishness” in which it is fairly common for a female to project and even try to impersonate a male persona. Whether by choice or by intuition.
The strange pill to swallow, males are shunned by society profoundly when shown to exhibit signs of even a short interest in this “phase.” In my experience, these individuals are usually scarred for life.
If GID is deep enough ingrained, the child may even try to mutilate that part of himself he has come to despise. If he is forced to grow up under these circumstances his psycho-sexual development will be hindered at best, while at worse, he will be an easy choice for watching for drug abuse, alcoholism, sex addictions or abuse, and have suicidal tendencies.
While it is not known exactly what would trigger this situation in early childhood development often it is a deep ingraining of how the child is perceived early in his life.
Many will argue that these individuals are simply wanting attention and have seen that the opposite sex get more attention. I wish to plead a different case.
I have had the occasion to see first hand several of these types of individuals from various experiences. And while I am no doctor, in fact quite the novice, I have seen the eventual damage that dealing with GID with a disregard to what may have triggered this reaction.
For a fictional look at a combined grafting of all of these people into one character, please read my article:Name Withheld
I promise my next articles will be more cheerful, but sometimes you just have to tell what it on your heart, and this being my chatter blog, here it is in all of it’s glory.
