We've heard you loud and clear - negative reputation is back. Remember that it's still against the rules to complain about being downvoted - if you think someone's mass-downvoting posts or otherwise abusing the reputation system, DM a mod and we will take care of it.
Exactly! This is the bullying I am referring to. No one should be told to commit suicide and all that other stuff. That is beyond what anyone should be subjected to, even if they "brought it upon themselves". She clearly is not mentally stable and needed help. It is already unimaginable for a mentally stable person to receive such threats, let alone a mentally unstable person. Like I said, I do not watch any of them and isn't a fan of either. I just feel that such threats should not be given to anybody. If anyone still thinks she "deserves" it, then we can agree to disagree.
I do not follow DissociaDID, Trisha, and the entire drama. I am appalled to see the bullying that Trisha is facing. She does not deserve this. Nobody should be subjected to this. From the few videos I watched, I wonder about the smoothness of her switching. I cannot imagine the amount of concentration and control is required. She does not seem to have any actual "mix-up times" (used by Billy Milligan to explain lost times after a trigger and his switches became inconsistent and uncontrollable). Even with the recent drama where she is apparently so triggered to split a new alter, she did not seem to have this issue. I really do not want to doubt her DID but I truly do not know.
Wow, I had come across her videos in the past. I did not know she claims to have 22 personalities. That is 2 personalities short of Billy Milligan, who had a very disrupted life. DID is such a complex disorder that diagnosis is often difficult. If she really has 22 personalities, I agree that she would be a medical phenomenon and extremely helpful to researchers.
This is some uncanny valley shit. Even a photoshop nood like me, who usually can't figure out the problem with picture even if someone points it out, can tell something is extremely wrong with these photos.
I agree. I think age is not the main issue unless you are in sports. People who start young will have a better advantage because they have more energy and time. You will need to put in a lot more effort when you start later. However, effort is the one thing Kenna is unwilling to put in. PS: I forgot to congratulate you on going to college! All the best!!!
I don't know if there is a definite answer to how normal it is. There are not many autistic influencers so it is hard to know what is normal. Even if it is not normal, I still think it is fine. I feel highlights are for easy referencing. Thus, it can be extremely educational for people, autistic or not, to makes informative instastories and kept them in a highlight for easy reference, much like any other highlights. To me, the problem is not whether it is normal for a person with autism to have an "autism highlight". Rather, whether the information in it is relevant and reliable.
Great paper you found! In a previous post of mine (link) I also cited a paper showing how ADOS is not a robust tool. All evaluation tools come with certain limitations due to the nature of it being either self-reported or observation. These tools need to be used in combination with proper professionals and several sessions for an actual diagnosis. I feel that most, if not all, people on this thread agree that the "diagnosis" (in her words) she has is not at all a diagnosis. Even the clinic's website does not call it a diagnosis but an evaluation. The issue is whether she is indeed autistic and what she going to or is going to do about it. In the video, she seems to have omitted or missed out important details of the session. There was also no proper update after that video. It is therefore hard to make a proper conclusion on her condition. On a side note, the left sock is annoying me to hell.
The danger is not about wanting nice skin complexion. The danger is not knowing the correct way to achieve it. If someone uses edits or makeup to achieve the look yet sells it as natural or through skincare routine, it gives a misconception to the people following them. This is also how a lot of people got sucked into buying products that they probably do not require. I am not extremely familiar with Sarah other than her infamous eye. I also only occasionally come on this thread to lurk. If she indeed has good skin complexion then yes, kudos to her. If she doesn't then sure, the makeup and edits (on that particular photo) are still admirable.
I wouldn't be surprised if she is having trouble making facial expressions. Her face seems to be getting really stiff since last year. On the new MVs (Empire and Talk Talk (Japanese version), I have to say she really puts in the budget to create really good quality videos. Grateful that I get to know yet another talented artist (eill). I personally find Talk Talk extremely annoying for some reason but eill made it good. I actually think I'll be able to bear the song if eill is singing it alone. Unfortunately, that is not the case so I will probably never listen to it again. Wengie seems to be seriously living her dreams of becoming an idol. Regardless of whether she is a success or not, it seems like she is enjoying herself so kudos to her! I would rather watch her MVs than her normal content. At least I get to know new artists this way.
Everyone here is making very valid points. Although Kenna describes her session as a diagnosis, it is actually an evaluation as stated on the clinic's website. The psychologist she met is highly capable of running the assessment, but it is important to note she is not yet certified to provide a proper diagnosis. Unless Kenna somehow left out the name of the actual clinical psychologist/psychiatrist that diagnosed her, she most likely did not receive one. The assessment is meant as a tool for helping to assess the possibility of someone being on the spectrum. According to the evaluation results, she may be on the spectrum. However, as everyone agreed, a three-hour assessment will never be enough for a proper diagnosis. I presumed that the psychologist that attended to her provided some kind of feedback to ask her to use the results as a tool to support further assessment. IMHO, Kenna is currently packaging the evaluation results as actual diagnosis (although it isn't) and running along with whatever fits the mould. Like someone mentioned in the thread, her assumed intention seems to be finding an acceptable reason for her unacceptable behaviours. That is why she started posting things about stims and the likes. She wanted people to "understand" that her unconventional behaviours are due to a reason beyond her control. Once again, I do not doubt her results. At least I do not want to doubt her results. I also do not want to doubt the credential of the clinic. Therefore, I hope she follows the feedback provided and seeks help if she felt the need instead of assuming people are ableists and expecting everyone to give in to her.
