Cluster B personality disorders are very common diagnoses in people with Munchausen's (factitious disorder); and IIRC more than half of troons (and I'm sure it's higher now with less gatekeeping) also have Cluster B, mostly BPD. But munchies and troons have very different motivations.I haven't caught up with the whole thread yet (give me a month and I may be up to date), and while autogynephilia and fetishism are brought up frequently, at least as far as I've read, I need to ask: is there a correlation between all this hormone and surgery fuckery and Munchausen? At least for the ones that don't do it out of a fetish or legit illness?
They may not intend to receive exactly pity and commiseration, unless they call for a woe-is-me pity party, but they still fuck up their bodies for attention in the form of validation and encouragement. Is that enough to get in the Munchie area?
