Here is a quote from Abraham Maslow, one of the great thinkers in psychology. Although he doesn't say "disorder", we could easily substitute his term personality problems with personality disorders and his statement will have much the same meaning.

Clearly, what will be called personality problems depends on who is doing the calling. The slave owner? The dictator? The patriarchal father?... It seems quite clear that personality problems may be loud protests against the crushing of psychological bones, of one's true inner nature. What is sick then is not to protest while this crime is being committed.


Maslow also asks

What shall we call the well-adjusted slave?
