I was talking politics with some one, and they started in on how trump is "insane" and "sociopaths", an I had to point out that most mentally ill just want healthcare and to be treated not shitty. there's something really evil about how anytime someone is cruel and uncaring people defaut to "brain must be wrong somehow"
Truly! That just sounds… pure evil to me, honestly, to default to that mentality. I feel like as long as people find it easy to default to ‘this person who did something truly awful can’t be mentally healthy/neurotypical, they clearly have some sort of disease in their brain’. They want to set up their neat little boxes… if you do something evil, clearly something is wrong with you to make you do that. It can’t be just that the person in question is evil. No “normal” person would ever do these horrible things, after all, so something has to be “wrong” with them to make it happen.
