Is there D.I.D. misrepresentation?

Browse movies, tv shows, books and more with D.I.D. misrepresentation.
Although it is usually fairly easy to tell with movies like Split, sometimes dissociative identity disorder (D.I.D., formerly known as Multiple Personality Disorder) is used as a plot twist, joke, or some other offensive tool. It would be good for those of us who live with D.I.D. to have warnings so we don't have be surprised by the shame and stigma cast on us.

Some villains have “multiple personalities”. Especially in s12e5 there’s a woman who is programmed to have a seperate fake personality as a cover for her secret identity

Possibly; will update as the show continues but Taissa seems to be developing a second, more "evil" personality. Whether this is legit possession or bad DID rep to be seen.

EDIT: From a recent interview with Taissa's actress, Tawny Cypress: "First of all, I want to make it very clear that I do not approach Other Tai as being a split personality or dissociative state… there’s no DID (dissociative identity disorder) going on here. I would never, and I don’t think the writers of the show would ever presume to know or to try and portray that on screen. What I’m doing would not be an accurate portrayal of DID."

No. Two people share a body via possession but is never referred to as DID. There are a few comments about "why are you two different people", people being startled by what appears to be rapid switching but to an extreme degree, and someone says "you shouldn't be two different people" in the finale, but he is a kid fixing a plot point.

The yes vote is probably because some things here could be interpreted as a metaphor for DID, and not a particularly accurate one. But nobody literally has DID, and DID isn’t used as a twist at the end or anything. Movie is pretty understanding toward mental illness in general

A mentally ill man who assaulted (broke the arm of) his therapist is said to have only been violent because he was in a “dissociative episode” but no other details are mentioned. DID isn’t mentioned or alluded to.
