The definition of Alexithymia:
In case this isn’t clear, Alexithymia does not mean that a person LACKS FEELINGS, EMOTIONS, or significant REACTIONS to the environment. It simply means that one has difficulty EXPRESSING those reactions verbally. This is not unexpected in VISUAL THINKERS.
But, of course, neurotypicals don’t “get it”. Here are a few of the distortions that appear in social fantasy.
Alexithymia has become the default disorder of being male, a complaint made by women who want men to be women.
Reactionary claim made by males who are tired of being “a disorder”

Bad grammar, feeble concepts: just keep throwing psychology nonsense on the pile because who has time for intellectual discipline? Don’t use “physiological” if you don’t know that it’s PHYSICAL…
