araragibar's transabled flag

Transabled is a transid for identifying with abilities (typically lack of abilities) than one currently or physically has. Though identification with amputation and paralysis are commonly focused on in studies, transability can be about any type of ability.

Dysphoria

Examples of transabled dysphoria include feeling distress over having a certain limb, having certain abilities, or not being perceived as having the desired abilities. Some BIID sufferers have been recorded feeling as if their limbs feel alien or as if they don't belong to them.[1]

Euphoria

In a study on BIID,[2] some transabled people have expressed euphoria and remission of BIID symptoms after undergoing amputation.
Transabled people may also experience euphoria by acting in a way that aligns with their desired abilities, or from seeing themselves as or being perceived as having those abilities.

Associated Transids

BIID (Body Integrity Identity Disorder)
BID (Body Identity Dysphoria)
Xenomelia

Associated Paraphilias
