as a refresher:

five reasons “why don’t you make your own?” is a shitty response to “why is everyone in this piece of media white/male/cis/het/able-bodied/neurotypical?”

1. not everyone has the ability to make their own. i like art, but i have no artistic talent. this doesn’t bar me from complaining about shitty or offensive art.

2. not everyone has the means to make their own. i have a relatively flexible schedule now, but when i was an undergrad i worked 35-50 hours a week and took a minimum of 15 credits, all while struggling with mental illness and commuting by bike or foot. i did not have the time or money to “make my own.”

3. not everyone wants to make their own—and once again, they don’t have to. people can complain about shitty media regardless of what they do or don’t churn out; if you disagree, please give me one good reason that doesn’t boil down to, “uh, BECAUSE.”

4. people already make their own, but no one pays attention. alternately, they try to make their own and receive so much hostility from their audience/colleagues/publishers and bosses that they give up. here’s a relevant article about racism in the literary world.

5. creation and consumption serve completely different purposes. yes, i enjoy writing my own stories, but the satisfaction i get from writing is nothing like the satisfaction i get from reading. i don’t watch or play sports, but i imagine the distinction is similar.

can we stop having this argument now?

oh hey, can we officially retire “but exposure therapy!!!” as a shitty argument against trigger warnings?

"i’m against trigger warnings for your sake! see, i want to subject you to a form of therapy which doesn’t always work and which needs to be…

Because it’s relevant and I would like to add another side to this discussion. Your reaction is completely childish you know. Nice tag, “congratulations you’re blocked.” Shows maturity.

At no point did I say anything even REMOTELY like “You need to get over it and face your fear!!!” Because that’s BS, and I know it. Don’t fight the people who aren’t against you…

no it is not relevant, because the post is about trigger warnings and how the “exposure therapy” argument against trigger warnings is shitty. it doesn’t matter whether exposure therapy works when “done correctly,” because flooding people with triggering content over the internet is not doing exposure therapy “correctly.”

now go to bed, you insolent child.

"i’m against trigger warnings for your sake! see, i want to subject you to a form of therapy which doesn’t always work and which needs to be conducted by a professional in a controlled environment. no no, don’t worry, i’m a professional douchebag and the internet is my controlled environment. and i only have your best interests at heart!

Well as a fair point exposure therapy, when done right, works 99.99% of the time

well as a fair point, why would you add this useless fucking comment to my post

mybygonevexations replied to your post “stop obnoxious poetry girl 2014”

is she still requesting you to like it?

nah, this site is new. she invited me to like her facebook pages a few times but i think she’s given up.

markmeerkats replied to your post “stop obnoxious poetry girl 2014”

her bio is so pretentious oh my god

and for someone who considers herself a poet, not at all well written. i’m also not sure why she’s chosen what looks like a senior yearbook photo to illustrate it.

OH MY GOD

"Maybe if I use as many 3-syllable words as possible and name drop some undergraduate-level psychology textbooks, people won’t notice what a lonely, pitiful, attention-needing little boy I am underneath this condescending, elitist persona."

dude actually claimed differences in men and women’s earning could be explained by men being naturally better at math.

did he legit just try to list the dsm as a manual of “how not to live”? like, actually? seriously? does he think people just willingly contract mental illnesses? i am so confused

idgie-threadgoode-can-get-it, was not the DSM created with the intent to identify and treat mental illnesses?

The DSM points out undesirable neurosis and psychosis in an attempt to rid people of undesirable thoughts and behaviors. My main point was that getting rid of bad behavior, which the DSM is used for, isn’t enough; we need something positive to set ourselves towards if we are to be good people. Hence Character Strengths and Virtues.

i think you have a very basic misunderstanding of the dsm. as in, you have no idea what it is actually for. the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders is used for diagnosing and classifying mental illnesses. in the dsm you will find no outlines for therapy, no guidelines for treatment, no step-by-step lists for recovery. it is also not a list of “bad behavior,” it gives you lists of behaviors that have become so persistent that they have started to interfere with a person’s life. the dsm is NOT used for “getting rid” of these behaviors, it is simply a descriptive tool.

also, your assertion that everyone needs some book to become better people sounds pretty similar to religious people who claim you must follow their religious path in order to be righteous and good, which is a pretty annoying idea.

ON TOP OF ALL THAT, the fact that you are using the dsm as an example of what is “undesirable” shows that you have a level of contempt and distrust in people with mental illnesses which makes you a gross person bent on increasing the stigma against the mentally ill. fuck off.

fucking thank you for saying this. that person’s comments were extra disgusting because it says right in my bio and faq that i have several mental illnesses, and since they made the poor decision to follow me i’d say there’s a good chance they read both.
