Why is is the same people who hate self-dxers are often the first to call ‘kin beliefs a mental illness? “Fictionkin” is not an illness in the DSM. It consequently isn’t even diagnosable as an illness by a trained medical professional, let alone someone on the internet.

It may be because their  worldview centers around not only attaching medical diagnoses to beliefs and personality traits, but receiving ‘permission’ for these beliefs and traits to exist/be valid through vetted medical establishments.
