I saw split and it's not what everyone who hasn't seen it is making it out to be. The therapist in the movie who only works with DID people explains that her patients aren't bad and it seems like the main character is a special case. And the character doesn't make you scared of him, the way they develop him makes you understand that he's a good person and 2 of his alters are bad people and he can't control it. And by the end you realize that it is 100% fiction because he becomes superhuman.
Maybe you, PERSONALLY, realize that. It doesn’t change the fact that, like I said, I’m already getting really disgusting, stigmatized, split-movie-fueled questions about my alters from people who actually think they’re not being rude
Literally every single one is saying “but like, are you like, sure you don’t have a homicidal alter” “but like are you SURE” “how would you even know you have DID, if you know it means you’re faking” “omg what if you have a homicidal personality that you don’t know about too what if you go and kill someone and don’t even know it”
Like…I could not make that shit up if I tried. I’m tired as FUCK of people telling me it’s not what it seems or to calm down or that it’s clearly fiction and that everyone knows that because CLEARLY plenty of people don’t. Fucking. Know. THAT. Juuuuuust like they assume the frickin Sybil movie also reflects exactly how D.I.D is.
If they’re going to make a movie about a disorder they could at the very LEAST use the right terminology for the damn disorder. And yet, they couldn’t even do THAT.
