New Disease Scheduled for DSM Infects Psychiatrists Due To Genetic Predisposition
Antagonistic Social Syndrome (A.S.S.)
By Patricia Lefave, Labeled, D.D.(P)
Are you suffering from A.S.S.?
Find out now. Here is a checklist of signs and symptoms to help you in understanding the diagnosis. If you have seven or more of these common signs, please don’t hesitate to get ‘help’ from an expert in A.S.S. We at the A.S.S. Foundation are working hard to remove the stigma attached to suffering from A.S.S. so that more people will find out the truth and seek treatment. Studies have shown that once you have a name for something, you will feel a whole let better about it because you will be able to tell yourself you can’t help being an A.S.S. since it is not that you ARE an A.S.S. It is that you HAVE A.S.S.
Many mental health professionals can help you with your understanding of A.S.S. as they themselves are often sufferers and have a great deal of experience suppressing the symptoms. It is a real bona fide disease which we, at the A.S.S. Foundation believe is caused by your defective brains. So, come forward and get the help you need if you have the following signs and symptoms or if you see others suffering from the same ones. Especially if you see it in others more than yourselves because they probably don’t know they have it. (You want to help others don’t you?)
The signs and symptoms include the following:
1. Do you believe that your particular group represents all that is sane in the world?
2. Do you ‘overlook’ abusive behaviour if it is done by ‘authority’ figures and expect others to do the same?
3. Do you call the legitimate complaints about boundary violations, ‘whining’?
4. Do you deny the existence of victims in the world, often saying the word itself with a tone of disdain?
5. Do you try to abstract your own limited concrete experience and make it the standard of judgment for all others?
6. Do you think that education makes people superior human beings in general and that the educated understand more about almost anything than anyone who is not educated?
7. Do you like to please ‘authority’ figures? Are they like substitute parents to you? Do you avoid disagreement with them?
8. Are you prone to the use of abstract platitudes, or quoting others as a means of stopping debate or of supplying ‘proof’ of your superior mind?
9. Do you like to control others for THEIR own good?
10. Do you claim other people are causing you to act out against them as an A.S.S. sufferer?
11. Do you consistently refuse to listen to any other point of view or just dismiss it as nonsense?
12. Are you unable to see a connection between your own aggressive behaviour and your target’s resistance or objection to it?
13. Do you lie to people and then ‘wonder’ why they don’t trust you?
14. Do you claim to be keeping someone’s confidence and then blab everything you are told?
15. Do you deny the other person’s correct perception of you in order to keep from being held accountable for your own behaviour?
16. Do you operate mostly from behind a personable façade and talk basically in sound bites for effect?
17. Do you focus on the surface appearance of things most of the time so that you won’t have to look any deeper?
18. Do you demand people go along with your illusions and lies and then kid yourself that you are really fooling them?
19. Do you abuse power to get your own way?
20. Do you talk about those you consider to be your inferiors when you are four feet away from them and then tell yourself that they can’t see you or hear you?
21. Do you consistently behave in a sneaky duplicitous manner and then claim the person who knows that or who objects to it is irrational?
22. Do you try to convince others that those who tell the truth about you are irrational?
23. Do you mock and ridicule other people for recognizing the truth about who you really are?
24. Do you mock people who are strangers to you?
25. Do you habitually turn reality around one hundred and eighty degrees so you won’t have to know that you are wrong about anything?
26. Example: You violate someone else’s personal boundaries then try to convince them THEY are having a reaction problem, a perception problem, or a character problem; not you?
(This last one is very high on the A.S.S. rating scale)
The above traits represent the most common signs of this problem. Check this list and see how you score. If you have over seven of these symptoms, you may qualify for residency in a housing project with the rest of us who think we know what an A.S.S. sufferer looks like.
At least if you manage to get into an A.S.S. community program, you will have name for what you suffer and the right to correct everyone’s perceptions and reactions to it by explaining to them that you have a REAL medical condition diagnosed by bona fide doctors. No one can argue with a doctor. Once it is official that you have A.S.S. the world will just have to accept you as your are.
We at the A.S.S. Foundation are working tirelessly to secure your rights to be an A.S.S. sufferer and to suffer along with you for it. Soon, the right to hate, harass, mock and ridicule others without restraint, will be recognized as your ‘incurable’ condition and the world will even applaud your great courage in living with your condition, rather than fighting it.
Oh yes. If you are anybody rich or famous and would like to offer yourself publicly as an example of the A.S.S. Syndrome and IF you are a satisfied customer in agreement with psychiatry about it, please contact the A.S. S. Foundation, a division of Big Pharma, “Always looking for a new treatment to make the world go away and put a smile on every face.”
