Society may term people affected by this as anti-social, weird, or perverted. That is not the case. These types of disorders are caused by events triggered during teenage, early adulthood, or adulthood. These symptoms & behaviours may seem normal to the person suffering from it but to others, they may come off as unnatural, unhealthy ways of thinking and behaving.
