why was that exactly

Also, also! 

The doctor on Crazy Ex Girlfriend telling the main character not to Google borderline personality disorder because of the disorder being misunderstood is problematic.

For one thing, it forces the character to rely solely on that doctor’s ‘expert knowledge’ on her condition. Googling BPD has the potential to introduce her to other individuals with the diagnosis sharing their stories of recovery or how how they coped with various circumstances.

But more importantly, it was the medical expert knowledge that constructed that misinformation about borderline personality disorder. For decades (centuries!) individuals diagnosed with mental illnesses that professionals wrote off as untreatable or as having poor prognoses or that made the person allegedly difficult to deal with or unreasonable have fought those professionals to change their dire views about such people and diagnoses and thus, our collective narrative about them. 

This doctor is (inadvertedly–the writers simply don’t know this history) cut this character off from the very forces that allowed them as professional to see this diagnosis and others like it as not the end of that person’s life.

don’t worry I’m going

Me this morning, making plans via a facebook group of awesome local women: Yeah! I’ll go out and do something social in real life! Meet some online friends that aren’t fandom friends for a beer! This is A Good Idea. 

Me now: But I don’t wanna go anywhere! I’ve barely touched tumblr today! I bought several comic books earlier! How do I even talk to non-fandom people anymore?!

Is this where I give a speech? Ask you to die for me? No thanks. 

I say we shove the Remnant down the Archon’s throat, and maybe that buys us a chance. All of us. We get the whole cluster to pile on. Everyone in Heleus has earned some fucking payback. 

  • Ravenclaw: I feel trapped.
  • Hufflepuff: We're in the middle of an open field.
  • Ravenclaw: No, I feel trapped in this moment in my life. Where am I going? What am I doing? And how am I going to get to where I want to be?
  • Hufflepuff: We're going to charms class, we're going to be doing charms work, and usually hard work and dedication. Try to think in the now.
  • Ravenclaw: Well, in the now I'm contemplating an assault on you.
  • Hufflepuff: At least you're thinking about here and now!

When Wash is feeling anxious/paranoid (which happens often and for various reasons), and they’re not actually in any danger yet, Tucker kinda casually holds the back of his neck, conveniently right over the mess of the implant site, just keeps his hand there. It sorta helps Wash feel a little safer.
