Identity Obsession Disorder

This post is destined for the Good Freaking Grief Hall of Fame

Dean Hutton is a South African artist whose most notorious project involves walking around in a custom-printed black and white suit and absorbing the responses from strangers.

Hutton first wore the Fuck White People suit at Gay Pride:

It was a test for me. If I can do it in a community in which I have almost de facto access to, can I do it in other spaces, where I don’t necessarily have de facto access except for the colour of my skin? You know, like, if I can’t do it at Gay Pride, then I can’t be making a whole fucking suit that says that. And, it’s still mostly an experiment, but it feels like it’s something I can do, and the reactions I am getting from it says that it is something that I should be doing.

Yes, Dean is deeply deluded, a classic example of what I am diagnosing as Identity Obsession Disorder. Dean is so wrapped up in his “identity” that he has lost his grip on reality. It is sad to see, it really is, and it is a growing trend with leftists. This is what happens when people are told that everything they are, and everything they experience is completely dependent on their “identity”. That identity can be gender, or race, or their sexual preferences. The idea is to so focus the individual on their identity that they lose all sense of individualism, sacrificing who they are in favor of becoming a member of a group. And, those that reject groupthink are savaged by the Left as “not genuine”. Women cannot really be women unless they completely embrace Leftism. Blacks who dare to be Conservatives are ostracized as sell outs or Uncle Toms. Again, you are must be a member of your “group”and reject individualism or you must face the consequences. Thinking for oneself, is simply not allowed.
