Okay. Jesus christ. Let's go over your post so I can walk you through this:>Gatekeeping: When someone takes it upon themselves to decide who does or does not have access or rights to a community or identity.
Literally what you meant:
<What I was GETTING at in my original post before this smooth brained piece of shit decided to open his mouth was that every time they classify every single little thing as it's own separate illness it's going to get to the point where just being alive is considered a mental illness band the term is going to lose all meaning, leaving those who actually need help left with none.
This is all you said, and you no way explained how just copying and pasting my post fits the description you posted in any way, shape or form. You literally just posted a definition, then copied my explanation and said, 'The two are the same' without explaining in ANY way how you came to that conclusion, because to any sane person, my comment and your description do not match in the slightest.
NO WHERE in my post do I talk about anyone having access to rights or community or identity. All I said was that because mental illness needs to be treated with the same respect as regular medical practice, they shouldn't be randomly naming every condition a new type of disorder when there is already previous categories that would cover it. It would be like if instead of having terms like "Virus" or "Bacteria" to cover wide ranges of things that cause disease we just named every single strain it's own individual disease type. It would start to get ridiculous and overwhelming. All science uses this breakdown, whether it be elements, how we categorize species, or how we recognize disease. However in the case of mental illness, for SOME reason, people think it's okay to just just throw this system completely out the window and make a disorganized mess of just random conditions with no correlation to the fact that other conditions may be at play here, despite the fact that is how EVERY OTHER SCIENTIFIC FIELD WORKS.
NONE of this is "Gatekeeping". It's simply, "FOLLOW THE FUCKING FORMAT."
