Cotard Syndrome

Cotard Syndrome 01

There is a new “rights movement” creeping up on you, or at least there should be by the standards of today’s “postmodern” liberal society: the zombie rights movement.

If you thought “zombies” were an improbable facet of Haitian “voodoo” beliefs, or the flesh-eating “ghouls” invented forty year ago by George Romero, think again.

Zombies are real, or at least people who “really, truly, honestly” believe that they are “zombies” are real. Just as there are “men” who “really, truly, honestly” believe that they are “women,” and vice versa.

In fact, the “mental disorder” even has a name, Cotard Syndrome.

Cotard Syndrome 02

Like “transsexualism,” it affects only a “tiny” proportion of society, but that doesn’t mean the folks who “suffer” from it ought not have their “delusion” indulged.

In fact, it should be a “matter of right.”

Similar to transsexuals, “zombies” suffer from a kind of psychological body “dysmorphia.” Where a “transsexual” believes he should have a “vagina” where his penis is, a zombie believes that his “flesh” is dead.

Where a transsexual man wants to dress like a “woman,” a zombie wants to dress for his “funeral.”

Where a transsexual “man” believes he ought to be allowed to shower with “women,” a zombie believes he doesn’t need to “shower,” since he is “dead.”

I am not making “any” of this up.

Cotard Syndrome 06

Flesh eating Zombie.

In fact, “Cotard Syndrome” sufferers have been known to “starve” themselves to death, since, of course, the dead don’t “eat,” or at least they didn’t until George Romero “invented” zombies that wanted to consume “human” flesh.

Still, from my “limited” research on the topic, I have not come across any incidents where a “Cotard” sufferer actually tried to “consume” a fellow human being, though I suppose that “is” a possibility.

The larger “point” is why these zombies are not being “indulged and granted” the same rights transsexuals “assert,” and have largely “won,” such as serving in the military.

Transsexuals also suffer from a “body dysmorphia” they are evidently helpless to control, and the government has decided to “normalize” this syndrome and essentially make society “conform” to transsexual delusions.

Cotard Syndrome 04

A Transsexual “Zombie” Man.

Why should Cotard “sufferers” be treated any differently? Granted, giving zombies “equal” rights would present some “conundrums,” but so does “indulging” transsexuals.

For example, would a “Cotard” sufferer fail an Army physical? There are “two” ways to look at it. Since the applicant believes he is “dead,” and to be an active-duty soldier you need to be “alive,” at least until the enemy “kills” you, indulging the “zombie” means failing him.

Cotard Syndrome 03

But presumably, since we have an “all-volunteer” army, a zombie will want to “pass,” so we should let him “join” up.

Unless, of course, we “reinstitute” a draft, in which case we might “face” a wave of Cotard “sufferers” certain that they are already “dead,” and so “ineligible” for military service.

Cotard Syndrome 05

Imagine “MASH 2025,” Corporal Klinger no longer wears a “dress” but pretends to be a “zombie.”

Kind of makes your “head” spin. Well, nobody said “living” in a postmodern liberal “paradise” would be easy.

No seriously, I’m dead.
