Abstract

本研究では,約3年に及ぶ縦断的インタビューで得られた性同一性障害者1名の語りから,当事者であったAが医療における「成功物語」から離脱し,自らを「性同一性障害者」と語らなくなっていく変容プロセスを質的に検討した。分析の視点は,①治療へのモチベーション及び身体の捉え方の変化,②Aを取り巻く社会的関係の変化,③病いの意味づけの変化であった。結果では,それぞれ①身体違和感及び治療へのモチベーションの相対的低下,②Aを取り巻く社会的関係の拡大及び私的関係における摩擦と他者との折り合い,③他者との関係性の中で生きることの重視が明らかになった。考察では,Aが「GID当事者である」と語らなくなっていた過程を,「成功物語」と「私物語」の間に齟齬が生じる過程として捉え返し,それを悪魔物語の解体と物語の再組織化過程という観点から述べた。

Increasingly more people in Japan know gender identity disorder (GID), and many with GID are publicly disclosing their condition and have begun talking about their situation openly through various media channels. We examined the narratives that we obtained through longitudinal interviews with a person with GID over a period of three years. Several transformations in them were identified, and three aspects were analyzed: changes in the person's medical needs and body recognition and acceptance, social relationships, and subjective evaluation of the condition. We found that the person experienced increasingly less body dysphoria and medical needs, experienced an expansion in social relationships and had more experiences of getting along both well and badly with others, and steadily increased the importance attached to living in close relationships with others. In discussion, we conceptualized the process of terminating medical treatment and quitting to describe himself as a person with GID, as that of “narrative about I” becoming at variance with “success narrative” in medical treatment, in which dissolution of a demonic narrative and re-organization of self narrative occurred.
