Transabled

The United States has a huge problem with mentally ill people.  Part of that problem is that we don't view them as mentally ill!  Transabled people think they are disabled, but they are actually perfectly healthy. 

They think they should have an arm or a leg cut off.  They often pretend they can't walk or that they have some other disability.  They sometimes try to get a doctor to disable them or, failing that, often try to mutilate themselves.

People who have this kind of mental problem should be put in hospital until they are well.  It is very sad that people lack the ability to discern their reality and doctors, lawyers and lawmakers fail to help them.  Rather, they buy into their fantasy and enable them to continue to live in their pretend world.  It's a shame we let this human potential be wasted because someone has a mental issue that won't be treated; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
