Stop banning me please.

...to explain their bad behavior or behavior that is perceived as bad.

Among many examples I could give, here is one: "Oh, I am violent and hit people and scream at the top of my lungs because I have anger problems".

Maybe you do that because that is what is easy and you don't want to take responsibility for your own actions and try to fix your problem because that takes effort. Having anger problems is no excuse for bad behavior. It is just a cop out.

Scientists hate this because they want to know the reasons behind everything. But ur brain is complicated and is no slave to any genetic coding. Only brainwashing.

You are quite right. It is, however, a reason for bad behaviour.

Yeah, sometimes people dont understand that thats not a excuse to be rude/aggressive/crazy.

Not really. The reason is morals or lack of. The ultimate physical actions of someone is what I mean.

Are you really going to claim that psychological problems, acknowledged globally as a genuine field of study and neurologicallt proven time and time again, do not exist?

There are no words...

No. I am just saying that people don't have to behave in a way that their genetic coding says they have to behave.

Only because people don't want to take responsibility for their actions

OP, more than half the Flood have a diagnosed disorder. You're in hot water.

He didn't say they didn't exist. He said they are used as an excuse for any and all behaviorial problems when there is no proof of a causal link in every situation.

If someone has a professionally diagnosed mental disorder, it is a reason for inconsistencies in their behaviour. Just as a depressed person may become incredibly upset involuntarily, someone who suffers from anger problems may find it very hard to suppress themselves emotionally. I'm not saying that having a mental disorder should absolve you from misdeeds, but they are definitely a reason for abnormal behaviour.

I appreciate that it's common (and, to an extent, reasonable) for someone who hasn't been there and/or doesn't work professionally in the field to have doubts about this though.

Recon Number 54 -
If they are still looking, then while holding the snarl, I let drool start to drip from my mouth, I stand, curl my fingers into claws and with a hunched over crouch, I then make slow and deliberate steps towards them. When I get close enough, I let them hear my agonized and gasping growls and then, if they continue to stare, when I get within arm's reach? I kiss them on the nose, and run away giggling.

It is irritating how many people use disorders as an excuse.

Like Naughty Child Syndrome. Unfortunately people find it hard to distinguish between genuine ADD/ADHD and being a little sod.

Better to just stick 'em on Ritalin and let them pay the price later.

As far as I see it, a disorder might mitigate your behaviour but it doesn't excuse it.

Doctors are too quick to diagnose their patients with mental illnesses.

I once told my doctor I had a hard time sleeping even when I was tired, and he was going to put me on anti depressants.

A reason for the thought maybe but not a reason for the actions

That South Park episode where Cartman imitated having tourettes describes this issue perfectly.

Well... Actually, yes it is, by proxy.
I think you're confusing reason and excuse.

"Ignorance is a plague."

Close, but the plague killed those infected with it, and the ignorant are still alive.
I wish ignorance was a plague.

Anyone who is unable to control themselves and is violent should be locked up.

A reason is an excuse when people know they shouldn't do something but do it anyway. Or even if they believe what they are doing is ok, in order to make themselves feel less at fault, they use "reasons" as an excuse.

I'm type 2 Bi-polar, I wouldn't say I use it as an excuse, but people need to understand not to take aggressive behavior from me personally.
