If you idolise 13 reasons why. Unfollow me. Bye. That show romanticises and lives on the stereotype of teenagers with mental health issues. As if we are depressed fucks, and our suicides are a cry of revenge. The main character herself Hannah fucking makes tapes to make the people who once hurt her practically regret their existence. In reality people who hurt you, unless they were complete psychopaths would have remorse or regrets of their actions, even if you don’t think so, or know it. Hannah doesn’t understand the extent of making her suicide as an act of revenge and those stupid tapes she made, blaming people for her death. This could lead to the ‘bad characters’ of the show themselves to develop or worsen their mental health issues, maybe they would attempt suicide; affecting their immediate and wider communal institutions such as their school. In reality people who commit suicide feel completely isolated, and they take on everyone’s problems. Not blame people for their problems. Mental health issues are far more complex than the show portrays. And hello? It’s a show??? It’s obviously never going to be a reflection of true reality. There’s profiting and a fan base based on a show about a girl who plots revenge through her suicide and tapes. There are memes popping up?!
If you sit down and thought about somebody you knew who committed suicide, and imagine their suicide was an act of revenge, and they made tapes to everyone who hurt them; you would fucking realise it’s fucked up and unrealistic. Also the show makes out as if romance solves everything? It alludes to if Clay ever loved Hannah she would have never killed herself. Romance is never a solution. Romance is an addition to life. Romance does not just solve suicide quick and easy?
Stay fucking woke my friends. Realise this show does not ‘show the reality of mental health
issues’, it only profits off the stereotypes.
i hope this isn't too weirdly personal of a prompt, but faceblind juno who falls for multiple nureyev aliases before figuring out they're the same guy?
