feminism is a kind of mental illness

SKAM 2015-2017

Season One
Eva’s season taught us about individual identity. It taught us that it is important to love ourselves first and to surround ourselves with people who remind us of who we are.

“I have to find out what my opinion is. And I have to do it on my own.”

Season Two
Noora’s season taught us about feminism, sexual assault and eating disorders. It showed us the importance of friends and female solidarity.

“Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about. Be kind. Always.”

Season Three
Isak’s season taught us about sexual identity, mental illness and prejudice. It showed us the importance of friends, communication and self-acceptance.

“Whether you believe in Allah or Jesus or evolution or parallel universes, there’s only one thing we know for sure. That life is now.”

Season Four
Sana’s season taught us about religion, prejudice, cultural identity and belonging. It showed us the importance of friendship, kindness, love and tolerance.

“Because even though it sometimes feels like it, no one’s ever alone. … Fear spreads, but fortunately, love does too.”

Hey Jennifer Lawrence is awesome.

Hey Jenifer Lawrence is actually a kind of a very problematic person. A lot of her jokes come at the expense of others. I’ll try to make a general list of the shitty things she has done.

Mod Bethany

Don’t ever underestimate a woman that suffers from depression, or in fact, any mental struggle.

Because whatever wave of struggle she is going through, there is a rage in her soul.

There is a fire in her chest that can burn entire cities to the ground.

She will light everything around her on fire, so you can understand what kind of hell she’s going through.

credenced  asked:

do you have any show to recommend which are similar to please like me? i just feel so empty since plm got canceled, i need something to watch.

Hi! Thanks for asking! I don’t know of something super exactly the same, but here are some recommendations:

Skam – realistic, understated Norwegian teen drama. Season three focuses on lgbt issues, but I would watch all of the show and not just stick to Isak’s storyline.

Fresh Meat – hilarious British show. Centered around six uni students who are living together. Young adult/growing up problems, like Please Like Me.

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend – totally self-aware musical comedy. The title put me off for a bit, but when I finally gave it a chance, it proved more and more that it knows exactly what it’s doing. Discusses mental illness, feminism, and has a few lgbt characters.

You’re the Worst – comedy/drama with the same kind of acidity that Please Like Me can have. Puts two people together who are “the worst,” but really explores what makes them who they are. Really fantastic mental health storyline.

Pramface – light and fun British comedy. Young people/growing up problems. A high school boy accidentally impregnates a college-bound, slightly posher girl during a one night stand. They try to figure out their relationship. And the boy’s two best friends are everything.

The Outs – fantastic understated NYC webseries focusing on the half-life of a relationship. Jack and Mitchell broke up, and we examine their lives as they attempt to move on and figure out who they are now.

Whatever This Is – awesome webseries from The Outs team. This is probably the closest thing to Please Like Me, and I am still holding out for a second season. Three room mates (two of whom are a couple) try to make rent and figure out who they are and what they want. Lgbt focus.

I’ll start teaching boys not to rape the moment we start teaching girls not to suffocate newborn babies and the moment we start teaching Muslim kids not to blow people up. Alternately, we can stop being overgeneralizing assholes holding kids accountable for the actions of mentally-ill criminals and teach all children to grow up and be kind and respectful law abiding citizens.

when you say you hate men

does that include black men?

native american men?

jewish men?

muslim men?

gay men?

trans men?

mentally ill men?

male abuse victims?

male rape victims?

poor men?

homeless men?

suicidal men?

if you said yes, congratulations you’re still a piece of shit.

if you agree with hating men but don’t hate specific kinds of men like the ones listed above, you’re still a piece of shit. 

men shouldn’t have to fall under your idea of oppression for you to not want them dead.

anonymous asked:

It's kind of funny I have an Ex who basically mentally abused/brainwashed me into being a fictionkin and forced me into believing I was trans and now they're diagnosed with so many illnesses, believes in modern day "feminism", they're kin with 2D (Gorillaz), changed themself to look like this character, and believes I'm a horrible person for leaving him/he/they/them WHATEVER THE FUCK to actually leave a toxic relationship. ((I swear this is actually fucking true and I am so much better btw))

christ, this ask was an adventure

1. i’m glad you were able to leave. not everyone can, so good for you, seriously

2. you’re right. current tumblr feminism isn’t even feminism anymore. it’s not about equality and cooperation; it’s about revenge, getting back at men, making boys feel like shit for being boys, and blatantly sexualizing ourselves bc we’re not sex objects (…??????). and it’s also about accepting absolutely everything whether it’s bullshit or legit. see: “if your feminism doesn’t include otherkin, you’re not really feminist”, an actual post i once saw (btw, trans boys exist. it hurst them arguably more than it hurts cis boys so) 

3. this is what i mean when the kin community in general influences kids into doing shitty things. you were emotionally manipulated into joining and staying in this cesspool of bs. and friends (kin friends) can be just as bad, y'all. do not try to insist to someone else that they’re “really your (character) uwu”. 

4. wtf, people are allowed to leave you if you’re being a piece of shit. get that through your thick little skulls. 


anyway, anon, ~stay safe uwuwuwuwu~ *cough* i mean, have a great day 

Tumblr

Where being cis means your a horrible human being
Where White people are the cause of the worlds issues
Where Heterosexuals are despicable 
Where Men are all rapists even though one just glanced at you
Where Mental Illness is a fad and cute
Where if your an Alley to lgbt+ then your still part of the enemy and we are above answering questions about us you have
Where Triggers once meant legit triggers now mean “things i disagree/dont like” 
Where Logic is the enemy
Where Historical research is bad unless it contributes to your agenda 
Where “I DONT CARE WHAT YOU SAY! ITS CANON” when its not
Where “im not like the other girls” even though you are
Where theres no such thing as a civil debate or conversation where you can see both point of views but you end up with spamming and when they dont research they rant about you being a low life racist cis straight male.
Where 14 year olds are scared to be themselves and if they are themselves they apologize
Where America is the whole world and only only place with issues
Where Communism is the best kind of government, its just gotta be done correctly which those of the past didnt do the right way 
Where being Fat means your beautiful instead of unhealthy

but hey, Tumblr is a Hate-free environment that is a means of escape and full of calm understanding people, right?

aintnobodyfresherthanmygays  asked:

YIKES people, sending angry anon hate doesn't help anything. We're all going to have different opinions, especially on the topics we've been discussing; cheating, abortion, miscarriages, birth control, feminism, LGBT couples, adoption/surrogacy, biphobia, homophobia, drugs, mental illness. Apart from politics and religion, we're discussing the most hot-button issues there are. We should engage in healthy debate, not lash out at each other. The fandom I know is kind and supportive, not vicious.

^^^^^^^^

This as hell. Like I’m sorry people don’t agree w what I’m posting, or what anyone else is posting but like. Come on y'all.

I’m not trying to call anyone out or be passive aggressive like I’m literally just posting my opinions and talking to my anons like what do y'all want me to do?

anonymous asked:

It's kind of sad of what Emma Watson and JK Rowling have become. Emma Watson, a person who believes that gender is on a spectrum and Rowling, a woman who believes everything the media says and that Donald Trump has a mental illness.

J.K. Rowling is a mess yeah but Emma Watson was propped up into the position as feminist-in-lead originally and kinda just took up all the positions mainstream feminism has by default. Watson I think is just kinda ignorant or at least WAS. But she isn’t the worst feminist out there.

I like Sommers a lot, yes.

Though, sometimes she comes off as condescending but that might be because she literally IS an intellectual. Like, memes aside and all.

🌹Know yourself 🌹

With mental illnesses, it’s ok to know your limits with upsetting things,, if you can’t handle gore online that’s ok if you can’t handle violence on tv or horror movies that’s ok,, there is no shame in surrounding yourself with kind and comforting things, just live your life in a way that keeps you mentally safe and functioning🌹

BLACK LIVES MATTER

This is being written in agitation, exhaustion, and frustration, during a severe flare, while adjusting to dosage changes in my medications, and a move to different country. But it is urgent, it needs to happen now.

I need to address the white people and non-Black POC within the sick and crip communities that I’m a part of, or that have resonated with Sick Woman Theory in their own work. I need to address the white people and non-Black POC within the activist, art, intellectual, political, and literary communities that are the context for my work. I’m specifically addressing white-passing—and therefore white-privileged—non-Black POC, like myself. 

I’m talking to you who count me as a friend, as a colleague, you who reference my work, who list me in your bibliographies, who have cited SWT in your essays or your emails to loved ones, who have supported me at public events or in private correspondence.

It’s becoming harder and harder for me to engage in chronic illness and disability justice conversations, care communities and support groups, or any kind of political activism around ableism, which does not include thinking and work about race, racism, white privilege, and, specifically, systemic white supremacy, police brutality, and anti-Blackness. 

And it’s becoming harder and harder for me to scroll through the timelines of white people, white friends, white colleagues, who are visible as political activists or advocates, as intellectual or critical thinkers, as teachers, as cultural producers, artists, and writers, and who have privilege in their visibility, but who are silent about Black Lives Matter. 

I cannot take seriously any kind of work around ableism, disability justice, chronic illness, neurodivergent and mental illness advocacy, feminism, queer/trans/nonbinary rights, and/or anticapitalism that does not include—no, that does not foreground—the critiquing and dismantling of racism, anti-Blackness, and white supremacy, right now and always.

I am not here for sick and crip justice work that is not actively and visibly in solidarity with Black Lives Matter. 

I am not here for any political activism or cultural production that centers whiteness, Euro-centric beauty, middle-class resources, ableism, and cis-heteronormativity. I am not here for it

I am not here for any practices (artistic, political, pedagogic, social, et al) that do not demonstrate actions and work toward anti-white-supremacy, decolonization, and anti-racism. 

I am not here for white cis-het feminists writing about their sadness and pain, but not their privilege, from the comfort of their heated bedrooms that only they occupy, whose medications, rent, and food are paid for by their parents.

I am not here for “anticapitalist” white boys who demand able-bodied revolution in the streets, nor for white protestors at #BLM demonstrations who antagonize the police.

I am not here for white middle-class anarchists who shout for us all to quit our jobs if we’re “serious” about being radical. 

I am not here for white, funded academics talking to each other in air-conditioned auditoriums about “precarity” and “vulnerability.”

I am not here for artists making expensive collectibles for the 1%.

I am not here for white people with a bone to pick about Beyonce “not doing more for her community,” but no critique of any other white celebrity who has said or done nothing about Black Lives Matter.

(This is not an exhaustive list, obviously, it’s just what comes to mind right now.) 

I am not here for any of it.

Sick Woman Theory is not here for it. 

I am not here for it.  

I am here for Black Lives Matter.

One day at a time is sooo good i can’t. everything about is incredible i thought i was gonna watch a fun binge worthy show (which i did) but it’s also so much more. the beautiful representation of mental illness, cuban culture and heritage, POC struggles, feminism, immigration, a veteran single mother who is kicking ass at most things and especially parenting, one of the most beautiful and true coming out storylines i’ve ever seen and the character is the same age as i am which just made it so much more wonderful and relatable. also it’s sooo funny i kept laughing out loud and almost woke my parents up (it was a night binge) and the humor is so witty and clever and not at all offensive in any way. this is the kind of show i needed i want more of this
