If you read this blog, you probably already know the stigma surrounding mental health issues is a HUGE deal to me. Shit, if I haven’t pissed you off with my opinion that that stigma is BULLSHIT, it’s a fair bet you agree with me. But some shit went down recently (right here, in fact, if you want to see for yourself), that is UNACCEPTABLE and beyond fucked up. So I’m putting bitches on blast, and putting the world on notice: if you think behavior like this is anything other than hateful, prejudiced, vile, inexcusable, and unacceptable, well, you and me gonna have some problems with each other.
Now, a common refrain I’m seeing these days when drama blows up on the internet is along the lines of, “That was meant to be a private email, between *two people only*, and so-and-so is completely in the wrong for making that private email public.” This is my response to anyone who feels that way in this case:
So what I hear you saying is, that it is PERFECTLY ACCEPTABLE and BEHAVIOR THAT YOU ENDORSE AS MATURE AND REASONABLE to publicly act one way, and then IN PRIVATE behave atrociously? Just wanted to make that clear, because if so, there’s another group I think you’d get along with JUST DANDY. Maybe you’ve heard of them, they’re called THE KKK. “Hey, y’all, did you know it’s PERFECTLY FINE to be a hateful, prejudiced, vile cunt? As long as you do it from under a sheet (or in a “private” email), it’s ALL GOOD! The more you know!”
Fuck that noise. Just fuck it.
