We've heard you loud and clear - negative reputation is back. Remember that it's still against the rules to complain about being downvoted - if you think someone's mass-downvoting posts or otherwise abusing the reputation system, DM a mod and we will take care of it.
bpd / personality disorders and mood disorders / bipolar still aren't talked about enough. when they are it seems either to be mockingly "uwu you should be proud" by people who aren't actually dealing with the illness and self diagnosing it or it's "wow all these people are attention seeking assholes". given there's less people than there were faking these illnesses (DID is the hip new thing to pretend to be). there's not really enough awareness that's actually valid or constructive or helpful. bpd especially is the fucking worst, because either nobody knows what it is or they automatically assume you're an attention mongering asshole
shelter in place in the US has been extended by another month. I am so tired of this. the US cases have now surpassed China's and I'm thinking about how all this could've been prevented if things had been handled properly from the get go. I myself have been having not so great respiratory pain but I'm thinking that it's a byproduct of having what appeared to be a sinus infection. I'm tired of looking at the news and seeing more and more things crop up that sadden me. One of my few escapisms has been watching movies and lame videos, writing occasionally… this has been difficult. I'm about to drop one of my classes because the professor is demanding a workload that's too heavy for me and I'm not up to par at all for it. It's not even integral to what's going to be my new degree, I'm just testing the waters for it. I'm so fucking exhausted.
YES. no matter what I do I can't get it to taste edible!! I only drink soda and occasionally tea, and the only form of coffee I can drink is when it's dropped into something else and not too excessively (like a frappe). Otherwise it's just straight up disgusting to me
DID's very divisive in the psychological community, and many people believe it doesn't exist. Theyve contemplated removing it from the DSM altogether for that reason. Nobody can come up with a consensus. I myself, I mean I'm no psych expert, so I dunno.
yeah the hypocrisy within the game is astounding, and if the roles between a male teacher and a female teacher in the game were reversed and the women were the predator, it feels like people would still excuse Kawakami even if she were in a position where she were portrayed as an outright abuser like Kamoshida.
persona 5 is my favorite persona game but ngl I wish it didn't have so many "waifu" options either. you do have to put forth effort in order to date the specific one u want since they're all social links, so it's not like it's the main point of the game. I love all their designs and they're pretty girls but I can't help but feel that some didn't need to be options.
and the sad fact is that u can't date sae but u can date kawakami which to me makes no sense. kawakami is lowkey the most hypocritical "waifu" option in the game and it's ironic as shit that they had a creepy female teacher in the prev game, a creepy male in this one, but kawakami gets a free pass. like atlus what the fuck. she has a really good design and so does tae takemi but those are the most ethnically questionable girls since one of them basically uses u as a lab rat and the other is your teacher. I mean I'd still say Sae is a questionable romance choice, given the fact that she's a prosecutor, but at least she would've been better than takemi or kawakami.
people would also be freaking out if the roles were reversed and it was a 16-17 year old girl with a teacher guy or a doctor guy. but naw dawg is fine if she's a girl, apparently (despite me myself liking older men I acknowledge that the former and the latter are both creepy, moreover I am an adult woman so it'd at least be less creepy and more consensual for me to want to date an older man, not like a 17 year old girl.)
99.99% of the people on the internet who claim to have dissociative identity disorder are faking it, and many of them for money or attention at that. Most DID people, which represent a tiny percentage of the population, are not able to function on the level of being cognizant of their actions and often require excess supervision, there's a very low low likelihood that someone with actualized DID would be able to control themselves enough to even own a social media account proper let alone monetize that shit or seek validation from it. All the fucking "multiple system" people on twitter and youtube are cancer and I'm tired of seeing them crop up in places. this is legit the same epidemic that happened with BPD / personality disorders a few years ago when people thought it was cool and quirky to pretend to have them, thus stigmatizing the disorder even more. I had a friend on twitter who said "well I take a live and let live approach if these people follow me and I follow them back" and frankly i disagree with her giving them any attention at all because they don't deserve it. I'm not DID, but as a cluster b who had to deal with the personality disorder faker epidemic I fucking object to DID being the "hip new disorder to fake" with every fibre of my being. It's gross and it needs to stop. ur OCs are not "altars", you are playing a character, why don't you write stories or fanfiction instead of hurting real people? hollywood and the psych community are split enough as is... nobody needs you muddying the debate on DID even more with your attention seeking ass.
dark haired men are typically better looking to me than light haired men (maybe it's the illusion they have more eyebrow and hair definition going on because their hair color is more prominent? and it makes them stand out more)
Fucking christ felix do you ever learn? His 9-12 year old fans are going to pick up such nasty cues and habits from him, like I'd like to think his audience isn't mostly young and impressionable younger kids and younger teens but that's not true… they are. And these kids honestly deserve better role models than someone like this shameful fuckhead. he's done the same shit over and over and over and expects that people are going to forgive him for it? One day people will stop forgiving him for it until hopefully he has no support left, including support from YouTube itself. i cannot believe a guy who used to be a seemingly innocuous if occasionally edgy let's player who would comment on slenderman games has become this… like he was never my favorite LP'er and i unsubbed him, but I do feel disappointed. Maybe he was always like this underneath, or maybe he became like this… what does it really matter? It's just a shameful transformation through and through.
I actually think the Chainsmokers Sick Boy album was a step up, only because songs like Side Effects, Hope, and the title track were better than the sludge they'd put out on Memories… Do Not Open Manic overall was also a better album than HFK or Badlands but nobody really seemed to care, even after Without Me was her most commercially successful solo single
It's funny how NFR got all the commercial and critical praise but BTD will always be my favorite LDR album and reviewers either panned it or called it mediocre. That was her best era wtf are people on. I mean imo I think NFR had some good songs but overall was nowhere near as interesting or consistently good as BTD where I can really vibe with the sound of the album.
