Hypermobility? Pshaw! Even auto-correct says that’s not a thing.

You pulled the old “dad crushes daughter’s boyfriend’s hand” handshake and executed it to perfection. Gotta let those little shits know that if they mess with your little princess, there’ll be Hell to pay.

No, not all hypermobility is EDS. Hypermobility is simply the technical term for "double-jointed" and refers to higher than normal flexibility of the cartilage. However, a person doesn't have to have EDS in order to be hypermobile. Ballerinas, gymnasts, contortionists... me... not all have EDS but we sure can be bendy! Though the kid in the story probably does have EDS if his fingers dislocate that easily lol I can dislocate on command but my hips, shoulder and spine are the most likely, which is even funnier considering that I also have moderate arthritis. It is painful in my body.

What makes a news article “huge”? Was it printed in a large font? I didn’t see said article so not sure “huge” means it was widely circulated.

OR your daughter’s BF is a weak wimpy boy that couldn’t execute a manly handshake.
That’ll teach him. !!

(Is that what a “metro-sexual” guy is? I’m not sure)

My partner has EDS as well. He had to learn how to put his joints back in by a doctor, and now does it all himself. I recommend suggesting to them to get a doctor to teach him how to do it.

I have EDS, which it sounds like this guy most likely has.

You can be hypermobile, though, and not have issues like dislocations or a medical condition at all. Basically, not everyone with hypermobility has EDS, but everybody with EDS is hypermobile.
