National Multiple Personality Day, March 5th

March 5th is designated as Multiple Personality Day – historically associated with multiple personality disorder; clinically renamed dissociative identity disorder. Today’s celebrations are like any other group’s celebrations and using the Internet as one means of expression.

Below are a few links to sites & images found on the Internet addressing Multiple Personality Day.

Multiple Personality Day

When : Always March 5th

Multiple Personality Day is an opportunity to get in touch with yourselves.

Someone with a split personality has two personalities. Someone with multiple personalities has more than two personalities.  Its a psychological disorder that we hope none of our readers have.

Don’t be surprised to find yourself surrounded by people who are talking to themselves today. You might find yourself talking to yourself, too!

When you wish someone “Happy Multiple Personalty [sic] Day”, you may need to do so multiple times, once for each  personality.


Origin of “Multiple Personality Day”:

Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day. Perhaps, the creator assumed his other half would record it.

    The ‘social justice movement’ is probably one of the most mistakenly-named phenomena of recent history.

    In reality it is quite amusing. The term ‘social justice movement’ suggests that is what it is precisely – a movement for social justice. It brings to mind the equal rights movement of the 1960s. Unfortunately the reality couldn’t be more different. The ‘social justice movement’ is anything other than that – and it’s not much more than a means for extreme universal trolling and a convenient channel for folk to issue death threats to one another without fear of being blocked by a moderator.

    Indeed subjects such as ‘being fat is just like being gay’ and ‘all white people are automatcally racist’ are just the ‘moderate’ subjects covered. Death threats are so routine that it has become the norm for some (most) subscribers to routinely issue them. This is a different kind of ‘social justice’ than you might be used to. Basically it’s “agree with me and recognise me to be a victim, or I will kill you”.

    The DID/MPD movement fit into the ‘social justice movement’ perfectly. In the past they invariably called any skeptic a pedophile, satanist, CIA agent. Now anyone who questions their victimhood, who perhaps utters a teeny-weeny suggestion that having a vampire alter, or a lobster alter, or an Abraham Lincoln alter is just a little bit unbelievable…can simply be threatened with death.

    For a social anthropologist (i.e. my trade) the ‘social justice movement’ is perhaps the most fascinating area of study available in modern times – an often-crazed testamont to the strange times we live in.

      Interesting post, Avalon111. Social anthropology? Interesting as well. Could you offer us a few books to read on the subject?

      Hum, initially I read your post wrong – while thinking of all the hours I pounded the streets of Washington, D.C. (capitol of the US) for the rights of various groups.

      So now there is a ‘social justice’ movement. Scares me. Who decides what is just? Who decides how justice is rendered? Who decides? Concensus?

      I’ve experienced ‘social justice’ on my blog in several ways. All of them “Anonymous” using fake names and identities. Makes people brave and a cloak to hide behind.

      Regarding commenters at my blog:

      1) some leave comments that attack me or other posters.
      2) some leave vile & threatening comments that necessitated contacting the Federal Bureau of Investigating to open a file.

      Why do people think it’s perfectly fine to do those things? Is that ‘social justice’? If it is, what’s the difference between ‘social justice’ and ‘vigilantism’? It seems it only takes one person to launch an attack that may injure the receiver.

      Let us not forget those who do not necessarily conduct ‘social justice’ but incite action by others. That is what I find about those who make comments about me. Their information is second or third hand. It’s obvious my work is not read, nor my opinions understood, yet I receive the most vehement posts. If I follow the bouncing narrative, it usually goes back to the same place or groups.

      Due to the wild ‘social justice’ movement as you call it, I’ve ended free expression on my blog. Many major newspapers are doing the same. Social discourse has waned perhaps never to return.

      i probly shoudl explain what it is as well, its an attempt at making did look normal by having someone from a internet ezine interview them. the picture they use to show their normallacy is them with a paciier in their mouth holding a plushed toy. it amazed me that this was waht they beleived as a way to show stability and “healthy multiplicity”(their words).

        Jessica, when I thought I had multiple personalities it Was normal for those in my inner circle, to display behaviors unbecoming to an adult so to speak. We were free to be whatever we wanted – whenever we wanted. We were released from the bonds of responsibility adulthood demands. There is a lot of time in the day if being out of the home commuting to and from work are removed. Think of your usual work day and add 10+ hours of free time to it.

        This is one reason I refer to MPD/DID as a ‘lifestyle’ because responsibilities of adulthood don’t apply and The Psychology Industry makes it easy to remain in a child-like state every day if so chosen, that is not to say it is free of emotional pain and/or turmoil.

        To get back to your comment, it is ‘normal’ or common to cuddle with toys referred to as ‘stuffies’. Yes, baby sippy cups are used as are children’s movies, books, toys, crayons, drawing, and all things “children” in an effort to soothe the self, ease psychic pain, and to allow alter personalities a means to express themselves.

        You seem to think use of these items and behaviors are not “normal” – and perhaps that it falls outside of what we usually associate with adults and I agree.

        I consider, in most cases, those who subscribe to the MPD/DID diagnosis as living a “lifestyle” because the beliefs, behaviors, and activities engaged in on a regular basis fall outside of what society deems appropriate for adults – like drinking from sippy cups and cuddling teddy bears regularly.
