The fetishization of “opinion” and “free speech” is horrifying, people thinks it means they can saying anything anywhere
without ever being criticized or held accountable or disagreed with regardless of their education on a subject.
DID and OSDD-1, the disorders characterized by multiplicity, don’t work like this. At all.
We are equally likely as anyone else to commit crime, but far more likely to be the victims of crime (and multiplicity literally comes from trauma, usually abuse)
We are not dangerous. Specifically, we are not dangerous because of our disorder.
This movie goes out of its way to portray multiplicity incredibly inaccurately, and in an incredibly damaging way. Mentally ill people suffer enough due to stigma and ostracization. Enough people already think disorders like DID are characterized by violent criminality. Enough people with disorders, especially stigmatized disorders, have been and/or are continuous victims of abuse precisely because of our disorders.
This movie, which places its horribly inaccurate, demonizing portrayal of DID at the forefront of the capture and abuse of the young women, is massively perpetuating awful, damaging stereotypes.
This is not small. This is not trivial. This has consequences. Real people are denied care, denied agency, abused, and killed because of this stigma. If you see this movie, give any money to this movie at all, you are perpetuating that and the responsibility for these abuses and these deaths becomes yours too.
Instead, if you find yourself interested in learning more about abuse, trauma, and multiplicity, I would suggest investigating these topics using resources such as traumadissociation.com
Do. Not. See. This. Movie.
Stop killing us.
Sincerely, a multiple with OSDD-1b, and victim of abuse both individual and institutional.
In a newly released segment of their Variety chat, Kerry Washington and Aziz Ansari talk about being asked to play stereotypical minority characters. Washington revealed she was fired from two shows for not being “urban” enough. Kerry, that’s probably for the best.
