alright, let’s get one thing straight
i don’t give a single fuck whether or not donger turnip has narcissistic personality disorder. i literally do not care. if he were to be legitimately psychologically evaluated in-person and it turned out that he 100% is a pathological narcissist? cool. still don’t care.
what i do care about is how other people with npd are being affected by this. i care that a horrific monster is being toted as a “prime example” of a person with npd.
i care that those of you who are weirdly obsessed with proving that trump is a narcissist are amplifying the stigma against narcissistic personality disorder and making it hundreds of times harder for us to educate others and have them understand that narcissists aren’t intrinsically awful people.
i care that his incompetency and general shittiness aren’t being blamed on HIM AS A PERSON but instead on a mental illness, successfully relieving him of any responsibility for his own beliefs and actions, and instead painting narcissism itself as the bad guy here.
i care that anyone who doesn’t know any better (which is most everyone) is gonna see “trump has npd” and make an automatic link between being a terrible person and having narcissistic personality disorder.
it costs $0.00 to call out donald trump on what a sick excuse for a human being he is WITHOUT suggesting that mental illness (npd in particular) has anything to do with it. seriously, it’s hard enough as it is to disclose having this disorder to anyone. i’m sure i’m not the only one who would appreciate it if trump weren’t the first thing to come to mind when people hear “narcissistic personality disorder”.
