The Only Thing I Have To Say About Gamer Gate

The Only Thing I Have To Say About Gamer Gate:

thisfeliciaday:

I had a day off this weekend from shooting Supernatural, and I was walking around downtown Vancouver on Saturday, sampling all the artisan coffee I could get my throat around. At one point I saw a pair of guys walking towards me wearing gamer shirts. Black short-sleeved, one Halo and one Call of…

Pretending like there are some “other” gamers doing the things you don’t like, and “good” gamers who aren’t held responsible for anything, fixes nothing.

A brilliant metaphor

6. Cycle lanes are built just for you, and then the cars drive in those too.

It’s Okay It’s Love(2014)

This drama is tragically and beautifully written. We rarely see the deglamorized reality of Mental Illness and the stigmas that come with it. I would highly suggest this drama to everyone! You don’t even have to be a drama fan to appreciate this amazingly well written story.

In some east Asian countries, mental illness carries even more of a stigma then it does in the UK and the US, which makes this film so much more important.

Ok I cried this drama needs so much more attention 

  1. The two male leads both suffer from mental illnesses
  2. The male lead has very severe schizophrenia
  3. He also has PTSD and can only sleep in his bathtub
  4. His friend (the second male) has Tourette’s which is consistently portrayed 
  5. They DO NOT HOLD BACK on the ableist statements and remarks posed to the characters at all
  6. Nearing the end of the drama the male lead completely loses his grasp on reality with a severe relapse 
  7. Neither character gets miraculously 100% cured (both are indicated to still take medication) 
  8. They make peace with their illnesses and it’s a happy ending

The drama’s writers were also recently given a plaque for their efforts in raising awareness for this, and it breaks the stereotype of the conventional ‘perfect family’ K-drama. Seriously, go watch this. 

seriously watch this drama.

it breaks down so many stereotypes about neuroatypical people and has really great representation of various mental health disorders. The drama also features some nice 1-2 episode story arcs about the patients that are being treated under the care of the female lead in the psych unit of a hospital.

here’s a description of just a few of her patients: 

- a trans woman recovering from family abuse

- a schizophrenic man who stops taking his meds to save his sex life

- a grieving mother who thinks her baby is still alive

 the writers really made an effort to humanize all of the patients, instead of just writing  them off as “crazy”. 

I haven’t watched this yet, but I will signal-boost anything that is aware that “mental health” and “mental illness” isn’t short-hand for “mild depression or anxiety”. ~there’s a lot out there that can happen in brains, it all deserves support and understanding~
