    It`s a psychological condition called body integrity identity disorder. It`s almost like the opposite of phantom limb. There are even some cases where people deliberately got frostbite or severe burns on their legs so that doctors would be forced to amputate them.

    it is a recognised mental problem where people feel an overwhelming urge to cut off their own limbs sometimes just one arm or both legs or both arms etc. I find it really bizarre but not funny - how the hell was anyone laughing through that horror show. :|

    To everyone who whined about "this is horrible, he;s retarded, why?"

    Jerry Springer is 100% fake. All actors, all scripted for comedic purposes only. Jerry springer is faker than wrestling, since wrestlers actually do get injured quite often.

    He actually has taken his show to comedy festivals and performed a typical show on stage.

    So instead of saying we`re laughing at a retard, tell yourself this : We`re laughing at an actor playing a retarded tranny who cut his legs off because he dudn`t need `em.

    "Body integrity identity disorder" refers to the psychological feeling that one would be happier living life as an amputee and is usually, if not always, accompanied by the desire to amputate one or more healthy limbs in order to enact that desire. -Wikipedia

    Its rare, but its not exclusive to our stumped transvestite here. To me its almost a shame that its not common enough to warrant extensive study and maybe get help to some of these people so they don`t go and do something potentially fatal like this guy.

    Jerry Springer is under no obligation to present truthful events. That man could easily have lost his legs in an accident but was hired to portry himself as a freak. Or he may have approached the show under this guise and the Springer people happily filled airtime with him because Jerry Springer is just stupid entertainment and dont care to check the veracity of purported freakish behavior.

    Either way, even if it was fake, people who *are* living with this disease are more often than not terribly disturbed by it. They know what what they want is conventionally wrong but they are just so impulsed to do it that they can`t help themselves.

    ....I had to do a paper on this for my Biological Psychology class. It was really rather odd

    The best way you can know how people with this condition really feel is like this: imagine one morning you woke up with four arms, or a tail, or a wing growing out of your back. Obviously, this would feel awkward, uncomfortable, and even sickening, and what better way to feel comfortable again than to have it removed? I`ve never heard of a treatment to that condition other than to actually have the body part in question lopped off.

    To Nazarene

    Yes perhaps we should pay more attention to this disorder.

    However there is a difference between Body Integrity Identity Disorder and Gender Identity Disorder.
    Nature makes both men an women and there can be a mix-up at birth.
    BIID is something different; it is actively going against nature. There will be a natural reason for it I know, but this is far more a disorder than GID.

    "To me its almost a shame that its not common enough to warrant extensive study and maybe get help to some of these people so they don`t go and do something potentially fatal like this guy"

    theres has been studies recently. they helped one guy buy putting a mirror against his good leg, so it looked like he had two good legs, rather than a nice leg and a leg he wanted removing, and he said the feelings were reduced, but only slightly. they tried something else but i dont remember...but the doctors said it was the first time theyve tried the treatment
