Anonymous asked: Hi, I have a question on what BPDfamily is and why is it bad? When I got diagnosed with BPD, I regurgitated what I was told by my psychologist to my mother, who's just recently gotten into looking up and understanding more about BPD(bc she just started to accept my diagnosis). Is it something I should definitely warn her away from?
Answer: BPD Family has consistently encouraged forms of abuse as means of treating people with BPD, and it also spreads a ton of misinformation and promotes stigma against people with BPD. It compares us to ~Jekyll and Hyde~, and even says that someone being “dangerous” is a sure sign they have BPD. They are also sexist as hell.
If it tells you anything, I sometimes read through their website as a form of self harm.
