I love it how fifty year olds are like “BOTTLED WATER IS SO EVIL! It’s SUCH A WASTE OF PLASTIC!” However, if you place mountains of sugar that was acquired through industrial farming and some psychotropic compounds into the water and make it into liquid candy they’re like “THIS IS AN EXCELLENT USE OF PLASTIC AND YOU SHOULD POUR THIS STUFF INTO YOURSELF AND YOUR CHILDREN!”
There is definitely a fourth category here though…people realizing that things that their parents think are great and acceptable are in fact terrible (examples…coal…and homophobia.)
We need a section for underdeveloped frontal lobes too…
Everything you wanted to know about Nowhere Men’s delays but were afraid that you weren’t asking loudly or frequently enough about.
Please feel free to repost this link, or even take the entirety of its contents and put it up somewhere…
I wanted to explicitly call out one section:
Treating depression involves a lot of relearning how to interact with and process things properly. Receiving a gift isn’t supposed to make you feel guilty for tricking someone to believe you deserve nice things. Being complimented isn’t supposed to make you think the person is a soft-headed imbecile with terrible judgement that can’t see you are secretly the owner of a half-dried shit pile in the place of a soul. There is no quick fix to reverse these behaviors, the change is work. It’s hard and there are times when you will mess up and feel like you are slipping and nothing will ever help.
This felt really well-stated and resonated strongly with me. I experience something very similar with my own depression.
Jane Doe, the anonymous 16-year-old transgender girl who spent two months in an adult correctional facility despite no criminal charge, has been transferred to a “secure facility for delinquent boys.”
According to DCF officials, while in the psychiatric facility, Doe assaulted a staff member and a fellow youth, and also destroyed DCF property on Saturday night, prompting the final determination of placement at the Juvenile Training School, stating that there is no other “suitable place” for her.
Doe’s lawyer told the AP that DCF has already broken a number of promises regarding his client’s placement, safety, and future prospects. Doe’s attorney claims that DCF officials had assured him that Doe would receive adequate therapy, and that the agency would attempt to place her in a foster home.
Doe is being held in a separate room, away from the boys at JTS.
I don’t have any words for how unjust, inhumane and downright awful this is. #JusticeForJane.
