Yesterday we shared a controversial story on social media, this sparked outrage on Facebook with our readers. The story entitled above is a rare identity trend which surfaced last year called “transability”. Transability refers to a community of people that express strong desires to become disabled. Such desires arise within those who refer to themselves as transabled from feeling unnatural, or like imposters in their physically working bodies. Some experience this peculiar desire so deeply that they attempt to physically injure themselves in a way that causes lifelong disabilities, satisfying their aspiration to be disabled. People could want to become become deaf, blind, amputee, paraplegic.

The article explores areas of this form of body integrity identity disorder (BIID), touching upon research being under taken in Canada to understand more about transabled people, the reasons behind transability, and also how these individuals think and feel. Transbility is trending in not only Canada, but also in Germany and Switerzland. You can find out more about the research being undertaken in Canada, plus more useful links if you want to learn more at www.naturalnews.com_transability_identity_disorder_disabilities.

Transability is a catalyst to view disability as body art, with people deliberately harming their bodies for a desired impairment.
