I'm addicted to slamming my dick in the fridge door but I don't go about AWing that I'm disordered and shiat.
Everyone's such a pussy these days, "waah I'm unable to control my impulses, medicate me so I behave"...
If I were king 99% of you would find yourselves a lot less alive tomorrow morning, and it'd be all your fault for popping your stupid heads over the parapet and demanding attention. Attention is never a good thing, trust me, I had some once and it's a bitter fruit.

ADHD and Aspergers are real

They are just over diagnosed

Idiot article, idiot subtard, trollorific greenlighter, idiot media and its consumers.

HEADLINE: "Scientists no longer believe sex addiction exists -and that's bad news for Anthony Weiner"

And by "SCIENTISTS" TFA means 3 PhDs and 1 MD. I clicked the link to the study.

So 4 scientists no longer believe sex addiction exists.

Carry on, world.

Who gives a damn? If he was a woman politician, no matter what the body type or size of the assets, everybody on the internet would be clamoring for naked pictures and more pissed that there weren't any disseminated than they would ever be if sime actually got leaked to the geneal public. Some people like to take pictures of their wang, if he wasn't a politician it would not affect anybody, and the people receiving them wouldn't care, they would just say "oh well, another guy showing me his junk" and move on. But he's a public figure, so let's destroy him.

As soon as the human race admits to itself that we aren't hard wired to be monogamous we can stop all this prim and proper crap and admit sex is fun.
 
2013-07-30 07:27:14 AM
Could it be that Weiner is just a tool? What a shame, his wife seems kind of nice, even though she hung around with Hillary. Maybe she will be her running mate.

In their defense, scientists rarely ever agree on anything just out of sheer spite. Hell, there's people who still insist string theory is a thing. So getting four in a room who all agree is somewhat of a win.

My working theory on Weiner is that his wife is cool with him having some online fun, but for them to publicly admit that would be more damaging than saying Weiner is a sex hound.

So, you need to actually have sex to be a sex addict? Phew, that means Farkers have nothing to worry about!

Weiner is a comical distraction for the masses engineered by the puppet-masters so as to deflect attention from the NSA spying on our lives.
If there's another leak then they'll unleash more comical distractions, I've seen the short-list of contenders and it includes Justin Beiber getting caught farking a dolphin and there's also a rapper they're keeping in the wings called Mangina who is so hairy he spontaneously combusts when excited. They're planning on putting him in a car with Lohan a few times, the news cycle will be kept busy for at least two weeks by that.

Anything reinforcing can produce lasting changes in glutamatergic efferents from the prefrontal cortex. Essentially, neurons form stronger connections associated with addictive stimuli(I.e., LTP). Other reinforcers develop weakened synaptic connections (I.e., LTD). I could go into more detail, but it becomes tiresome the more of these threads there are. I prefer my studies be more biologically relevant, and psychiatry is more a social science that picked up some brain imaging techniques. Educate yourself, look up Peter Kalivas' work.

I'd be willing to give that opinion more weight if he knew WTF he was talking about. Many disorders are learned. We only know they exist because odd behavior. It's hard to pin down a physiological cause of Dissociative Identity Disorder, cause you're not always born with it. Seeing pink Christina Aguilera monsters is a pretty good sign you may have Schizophrenia. And as of ten years ago there wasn't even a consensus if Schizophrenia was genetic. We judge mental disorders by behavior cause it's the behavior that's the problem. But with that, I think sex addiction exists because you're technically capable of being addicted to anything.

hardinparamedic: Hmm. I always thought "sex addiction" was slang for histrionic personality disorder.


I though sexual addiction was slang for douchebag disorder. Every man or woman who claims a sex addiction tends to be a douchebag and attention whore. Anthony Weiner is no different. He just doesn't get why everyone is upset that he claimed the sexting incident that ended his congressional was a one off mistake and he deserved to be mayor, when he was still sexting at every possibility.

Pretty much. Addiction is simply a maladaptive learning strategy and that's how we study it in the lab. Learned helpless is an excellent example that relates to humans. Everyone wonders why domestic violence sufferers remain with their spouses, and it's mostly because they'very learned there is no escape, even though the door is sitting right in front of them. Our minds are capable of some farked up things.

We know schizophrenia is biological now, because our ability to analyze the body is good enough to see the physical differences between someone suffering from schizophrenia and someone who is not.  There isn't some sort of magic soul that hides mental illness.  Our tools will become sharp enough to discover the underlying biological problem for all mental illnesses.  We should augment a symptom diagnosis with physical diagnosis.  No one is saying we should throw away analyzing symptoms, but we should advance the way we diagnose mental disorders.  The DSM is holding us back because it isn't totally rooted in science.  It's better than blaming everything on evil spirits, but it's still an ancient way of looking at things and diagnosis still relies heavily on "intuition."

Yes, you can be psychologically, though not physically dependent on THC. However, there aren't nearly as many addicts as their are claimants. It's a small subset of the population and I think addiction is probably more over diagnosed than ADHD

X-boxershorts: So, it ranks right up there with Marijuana addiction then?


While not physically addictive, the behavoirs surrounding the usage can be. Anything that triggers dopamine releases for the brain can become addictive and more and more we are finding that some people are genetically predisposed to forming those addictive connections in the frontal cortex.

Hell on technicality, exercise can become an addiction.

And SAD probably also has some basis in fact (it's well-known that sunlight exposure affects hormone and neurotransmitter production, and the usual treatment for SAD is to get light exposure, not drugs).
