that it’s time to stop pretending that “insane asylums” are such a distant concept and the abuse that mentally ill ppl endured in the past happened so long ago that they’re pretty much fair game to use for basic horror fodder.
Deinstitutionalization occurred barely fifty years ago, if that.
Lobotomies were not medieval procedures. The transorbital (icepick) lobotomy was not INVENTED until 1945. The last one in the U.S. was performed in 1967.
This is not ancient history. There are thousands of people alive to this day who were directly involved in these things.
A mental patient is not a scary costume. An asylum is not a spooky haunted house theme. Stop exploiting the suffering of mentally ill ppl for your entertainment and stop supporting media that does so.
