Becoming disabled by choice, not chance: ‘Transabled’ people feel like impostors in their fully working bodies

OTTAWA — When he cut off his right arm with a “very sharp power tool,” a man who now calls himself One Hand Jason let everyone believe it was an accident.

But he had for months tried different means of cutting and crushing the limb that never quite felt like his own, training himself on first aid so he wouldn’t bleed to death, even practicing on animal parts sourced from a butcher.

“My goal was to get the job done with no hope of reconstruction or re-attachment, and I wanted some method that I could actually bring myself to do,”

    This is totally insane. Just ask anyone who is truly disabled if life without disability wouldn’t be preferable.

    • Frau Katze

      I suspect there would a lot of stigma to admitting it…it’s so strange.

  • Frau Katze

    I’m truly amazed. I can scarcely believe it. These people must be more than a bit “odd.” Bizarro news indeed.

      I’d heard about this several time before. And a few years back I came upon a website about a guy who insisted on having his testicles and penis removed. He succeeded and everything was removed.

        Mao Sugiyama cooked his own genitalia and garnished them with mushrooms and parsley then served them up to paying guests.

          There was also an avant-garde artist several decades back who sliced his penis off one section at a time and photographed each mutilation as ‘art’.
          Read that back in the 70s, and at the time was assured that it was for real.
          Some people are just totally sick.

            I wonder if anyone has had an extra functional working unit grafted on beside the one we’re blessed with?

  • Norman_In_New_York

    There are no medical procedures that can fix stupid.

    What a colossal insult to those who are genuinely disabled. Yes, mental illness is serious, but normalizing abnormal behavior, which seems to be a trend these days, is ridiculous.

    • Frances

      Agree. Have disabled family members. Admire them greatly. Would not want to walk in their footsteps, and suspect they would prefer not to have to deal with their disabilities either.

  • UCSPanther

    I would call this moron’s act a particularly heinous and grotesque act of self-mutilation…

  • Truthful Facts

    This is why I no longer identity as a Westerner. For me, Western Civilization is dead. It’s rotten. It no longer defines me or shares anything in common with me.

    I still follow the old laws of the old Civilization of my people, prior to destruction, but as this new, foreign civilization asserts itself and imposes its laws on me, I find myself growing more and more angry and more and more willing to fight against it.

      Hear hear. The virtues and values that made us great once are now ridiculed and treated as flaws or worse. Those personal attributes that we once tried to avoid are now celebrated.

      Although, I don’t know how you would fight against it or if you even could or if it would even be worth it. Even if you won, what would you have? The people who are useless, screw ups would still be useless screw ups.

      Ordinary hardworking people still lived their day to day lives during Rome’s fall. They still raised good children. They still conducted business. They still worked and celebrated. Just keep your eye on the straight & narrow, keep your values and priorities straight and less these other weirdos go to hell on their own.

      As far as the dumb-assed fuck who wants to cut off his own arm? Have fun with that you twit. While you’re sitting on the sidelines getting small bits of cheap attention through pity I’ll be having fun playing sports. Fuck you.

    The deal is that the SJWs want to make it immoral to call these people crazy, the way it’s now officially immoral to call Bruce Jenner crazy.

    And it is, officially, immoral to call Bruce Jenner crazy. Even though he has had his dick cut off and is pretending to be a chick. Which for my money is every bit as crazy as the dude who cut his own arm off.

    They’re not crazy, they’re choosing to be differently abled. And if you don’t nod sagely and go along with the gag, you get your reputation destroyed before noon the next day.

      Bruce kept his dick.

      • Raymond Hietapakka

        …and stays Kosher too, just in case…

    • Frances

      Aged P had macular degeneration, which meant was legally blind. And if you’d tried to say Aged P was only “differently abled”, you’d have been stabbed with the white cane.

    the slippery slope…this BS is endless

    pedophilia, bestiality ,animal marriage soon to be made normal

    • Exile1981

      The rumours on the internet is the 6th version of DSM does make pedophilia a biological option rather than a mental illness.

  • Hard Little Machine

    Just wait. Now they’ll want their own bathroom different from the other disabled bathrooms, because reasons.

    • andycanuck

      Apparently there’s a high rate of overlap for the amputation fetishists and trannies so that might happen. Check at a university campus near you.

  • Exile1981

    This used to be called phantom limb ayndrome and it used to be considered a mental illness. These days its now considered a life choice. The weirdos have been pushing their agenda with each new edition of the DSM. When edition 6 comes out I predict all sorts of new perversions to be normalized in its pages.

    • Frances

      Wasn’t “phantom limb syndrome” the condition where an amputee still “felt” sensations from the severed limb? Never heard that was considered a mental illness; more a manifestation of nerve damage.

  • David Murrell

    Nearly all posts on this thread condemn the trasabled. Yet when the corporate media cartel get hold of this, purposeful intentional disablism will be all the rage.

  • Jabberwokk

    Dear God:

    Humanity has lost it’s mind. They have proven true what you said “Professing themselves wise they became fools”. Humanity has become such a repugnant thing that i no longer wish to be associated with them. Perhaps it was beautiful once, but now they do all they can to mar and reform the image of the one they bare. They think themselves beyond Idol worship but make themselves into the idols they worship. Instead of being what you made them to be, they make you into what they want to be. They desire the echo Triumphing over the voice. Can I please be excused now? I don’t want to be around when all they’ve built for themselves collapses on them. We both know they will blame you for that too even though they have long since kicked you out.

    • Exile1981

      Dear Jabberwokk,
      Start building an ark, preferably one that can leave the planet as time is running out.

      • Jabberwokk

        It’s a good idea but if i had the technology that solved the problems that would en tale I would have so much money I could just buy North America and deport lunacy.

        That and the fact that Arks aren’t meant to last. There meant to be temporary until the storm is over.

        I mean the power source alone would be an engineering miracle.

  • tom_billesley

    Now I can’t work out if I’m transphobic about transabled or about transsexuals. What about transabled transsexuals? Life is complicated.

  • Kathy Nelson

    We are talking serious mental illness here. It should not be respected, condoned or given and social or financial support. No disability welfare for you weirdos.

  • Al_the_Fish

    Mr.Cat, as someone who has been a para most of my life, these people absolutely sicken me.

  • It’s time to address mental illness in society.

  • DMB

    This is likely the same type of mental illness that leads certain people to want to have a sex change and live their lives as the opposite sex. The psychiatry profession needs to stop bowing down to the forces of political correctness and take this type of mental illness seriously with proper treatment.
