-Hollywood isn't out of original ideas at all. The problem is that, the vast majority of the time, people either never actually watch original stuff or they hate it. The film industry relying on brands now instead of original ideas to sell movies is the fault of viewers, not Hollywood themselves.

-Respect for people should not be earned. The only reason someone should ever have to earn respect is if they have to earn it back. Respect for others should always be lost first, not earned and then lost.

I agree with you on both, but especially the first one. Sweet Jesus, I agree with it so much.

people who say they wish they could just never work or study and just sit at home

This, oh my god.
Half of last year after my apprenticeship with my step dad fell through, I was stuck at home looking for work for around four months, and I can tell you it was the most awful time of my life (so far lol). People can't just sit at home all day doing nothing, they need a purpose. Working, studying, raising a family, that all gives your life purpose and meaning. Of course people can still be depressed at work or study, especially if it's something they don't want to do, but it's a hell of a lot better than being alone with your thoughts doing nothing at home all day.

The terms ''High-functioning,'' and ''Low-functioning,'' are ridiculous when used to regards to mental illness. It either implies someone isn't severely mentally ill enough to deserve help, or that they think someone drools all the time under a bridge talking to themself. It's so cringey when people use these terms. Honestly I really doubt these terms are validated by psychologists.

Suffering is not a competition, and it varies. I don't get how people can be boxed into ''High'' and ''Low'' functioning. A ''low'' functioning person may get better when they finally get the right help, ''high'' functioning people may have a crisis.

A lot of mentally ill people hide how they are feeling inside, judging the ''severity'' of mental illness by merely the exterior of a person is truly laughable.

Most mentally ill people are capable of holding a job and being compentent at it, but for some people they can't admit it. In fact, a very large number of mentally ill people are compentent workers. Are most mentally ill people ''High functioning'' then? Because I get the strong feeling these people glamourise those they regard as ''High functioning'' and then there's the dang, dirty ''Low functioning'' people, but their core problem is that they depise the mentally ill.

Honestly the truth probably is that people who excel more worked harder. I think belief in talent will simply hold you back. Just be patient and keep working, and it'll come. It isn't easy, those who excel took a rough road to get good.

I’ve noticed over the past year that some SJW types (for lack of a better word) have started acting very bitter towards the words yaoi and yuri, mainly due to “straights fetishizing it” or something last I heard. But like... Speaking as a bisexual woman, I really don’t care if people call a ship between two girls a “yuri ship” or a “lesbian ship”, because in my mind they’re synonymous. I really don’t see the issue, but apparently there is one.

The issue they have is more the common tropes that they use in things like "yaoi" and "yuri" are often very toxic (e.g: yandere/obsessive tropes) and a lot impressionable young straight people take in the media and assume that that is healthy and how those relationships should be and then upon meeting a gay/lesbian they ask uncomfortable questions and try to insist on putting them into those unhealthy boxes.

That's not limited to homosexual relationships though, just look at Twilight or how some people put abusive characters in ships. That said, they're younger people, they need to be informed about how it works and not yelled at, that's just going to make them double down on it.

Well that makes a little more sense than what I’ve been seeing. The only incidents of people raging over yaoi and yuri that I’ve seen up until now was solely about the words themselves being objectifying (which I’ve never felt like “yuri” was an objectifying word). An example of this would be a YouTube comment on some vocaloid song of all things saying “don’t say yuri that’s a term that fetishizes lesbians”.
If they were actually talking about the genres themselves, and tropes used in yaoi and yuri content, I would understand, but half the time it seems like people are just getting upset over the use of the words.

Its because at this point the words are heavily linked with the tropes, and are used as like a term for sexualisation of gay/lesbian relationships and using it to describe all of those relationships make people think that gay/lesbian relationships are only sexual things. This is not entirely my view, I am just sharing what I know of other's opinions to help you understand. Sorry if this comes off weird at all.

Alright, let me explain


So with the upcoming movie, "The Hate U Give", people are complaining that the actor who plays the main character is, "not black enough", saying her skin was darker in the novel. And honestly, that bothers me. Not dark skinned actors, but actors where their looks are the bigger focus than how well they act the part.

Does that sound better?

Anxiety and depression are still stigmatized against very much so, but I want all mental illnesses to be understood and treated compassionately. I am so happy anxiety and depression are being talked about - but people turn a blind eye to say, psychotic disorders, personality disorders and dissociative disorders. The stigma towards say Schizophrenia (psychotic disorder) , Dissociative Identity Disorder (dissociative disorder) or Borderline Personality Disorder, is a lot worse. These disorders are a lot more common than people think too - that's means they're a lot more people who keep quiet about their mental health struggles for fear of being seen as some sort of maniacal murderer rather than the well-adjusted adult they initially came across that they really are. Compassion for the mentally ill shouldn't be limited to anxiety and depression only. There are several other mental disorders that rarely or don't ever get talked about, and if people are talking about it they're stating the incorrect notion that those with these other illnesses will probably kill you. Not many people campaign for or know much about the three disorders I mentioned before as examples, and there are a lot more dissociative disorders, psychotic disorders and personality disorders.

Skinny shamming needs to stop, because as someone who is small myself it is hard to find clothes that fit me too. If you want to show body positivity, it goes both ways. Because being told you don't exist because 'people who are size 6 (in AUS sizing) and have real big boobs don't exist' is really harmful. We do exist and its a huge ****ing struggle for us to find anything that fits. And it's not a good thing to be that size ether, I would get a reduction if I had the money.

I think being truly empathetic has to involve honesty towards others. People can tell others what they want to hear, but it typically doesn't really help people. It's more about the way they appear to others than helping people for real. Being more honest will build more trust as well. People should tell people what they need to hear rather than what they want to hear.

don't get me wrong i like both and they both sound really good, but the more dramatic mood in queen's distracts me from the emotional part of it. i know the stage-y feel is the point, to set the scene, but for some reason i always found this song of theirs too cheesy
plus i really love the wall so I know there's bias there ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
(given the wall basically climaxes with a tim burton song i guess feeling this way is ironic)

objectively idgaf; i can tell you how it makes me feel, but i don't get music, so i can't really offer criticism of substance.

Clichè phrases said to survivors of traumatic events such as ''Everyone has different thresholds,'', ''What might traumatize one person, might not traumatize another'' or ''Other people have had it worse, but -blah, blah-'' honestly don't seem to me to be at all comforting and validating to victims and survivors. To me comparing a trauma is completely futile, if someone has been traumatized, then that should be enough to gain compassion.

The causes of PTSD are not caused by how severe a traumatic event is, it's a complicated mix of biological and environmental causes that activate PTSD if someone experiences a traumatic event. If severity was a leading cause, then if we take an event like fighting in a war, a high percentage of troops would develop PTSD. But the real number is below 10%. I am not claiming that traumatic events do not hurt, distress and traumatize everyone, but it is uncommon to develop PTSD.

I don't really think it counts as 'unpopular' but it seriously makes me cringe when people think we need to campaign against the 'stigma' against sociopaths, or that it's possible to treat sociopaths in therapy. I've seen some of it on Tumblr and I think it's quite a dangerous belief. If these people meet someone they strongly suspect is a sociopath, they might not go for the sensible option which is to avoid them and then the sociopath can do whatever they like to them. To top it off, they're encouraging other people to do it. Encountering a sociopath is no laughing matter, and they can do extremely cruel actions to people, and probably in particular if the person doesn't acknowledge their true threat.

I remember reading an article about therapists who treated sociopaths in therapy, I can't understand it and it means they're such bad therapists. You can't treat sociopaths and if you bring them to therapy you're giving them knowledge about psychology which will only make them several times worse, not to mention they're probably already manipulating their therapists. It's not the sort of disorder where they're hurting inside at all, it's the sort of disorder where they hurt others on a constant and regular basis.

I cannot even understand it, is this even real?
