Nope, no, it’s too late, now I’m mad.
Going off the posts that inspired this, ‘little’ can mean, depending who you’re talking to, ‘small,’ ‘a child,’ ‘my inner child,’ ‘a member of a multiple system who is a child,’ or ‘a role that I play in kink activities.’ All of these uses of ‘little’ make total sense, and pretending that using any one version is ‘stealing’ from the DID community is so laughably absurd that I’m astounded anyone even pauses to consider it. Except I'm not, because it’s actually a clever little thought-trap.
People assume that self-identified multiples just accept their existence with no incredulity or skepticism whatsoever. These people don’t know shit.

Huh, interesting. There’s a chapter from an old 90s book on trans stuff, called Current Concepts in Transgender Identity, and Chapter 10 is called “Multiple Personality Order.” A decent chunk of it seems to be on Google Books. Something for me to read when it’s not so late and I’m not so tired; part of me is curious, another part is worried it’ll be AWFUL.
(Our memory on a day-to-day basis is generally pretty good. The only things that get nuked are specifically TRAUMATIC things, and usually the blackout is specifically for isolated terrible incidences, so kinda difficult to track, unless it’s something like, “Oh, I used to X, but I have no idea when or why I started.”)
