Being on Tumblr all the time gives me such a deluded view of the world. I start believing that everyone is pro-choice, open-minded, have moral compass, care about animals, care about sexism, racism, body shaming,…
ok no this was not funny
we watched this in my psychology class, and what they did was actually really fuckin cruel. this girl has a genuine phobia of cotton balls. so what do the people on this fucking show do? they bombard her with as many cotton balls as possible without warning.
she ran out of the studio fucking sobbing she was so terrified.
bunch of fuckin dickshits.
even if it is, it’s still awful. because what does this teach people? it teaches them that if a phobia seems strange to us, then it’s something to laugh and joke about. it teaches people that phobias should be treated as comedy.
whether it’s real or not, it’s still shitty.
actually this really pisses me off. the other day in art class, we were doing a mini-project revolving around bugs. people found out that i have arachnophobia (fear of spiders) and instantly started picking at me, trying to get a reaction. this really put me on edge, and eventually i started yelling about how you dont make fun of someone’s fears. their response? “Yes you do!”
When someone has a phobia, or even just a fear, DO NOT MAKE FUN OF THEM FOR IT. DO NOT TRY TO SCARE THEM. IT IS NOT FUCKING FUNNY, AND COULD SEVERELY HURT THEM.
when i was in junior high- we went to a museum that had a biodome and i am terrified of butterflies
now i never really told anyone about it except a few close friends. we split into groups and one of my friends thought it would be funny to lead me through a path that lead TO A ROOM OPEN FULL OF BUTTERFLIES
you know those rooms where they are flying everywhere? landing on you and surrounding you?
i started screaming and running to the exit- but it was a walk through maze type of thing and i broke down and sat on the floor crying and started having a panic attack
its not funny
NOT FUNNY to do this to people alright
it took a hour for someone to calm me down enough to get me out of the room because i didnt want to move as i would literally be touching a butterfly
when people say ‘wow your fear is silly you should get over it this way’ stop
maybe the fear is silly to you but think of what it would be like if you are the one facing your fear and maybe youll change your mind
‘afraid of heights? oh let me just throw you off this building’
thats exactly the same as making someone face a fear you think is stupid
How To Tell If A Toy Is For Boys or Girls
Time to remind people…
(Need to remind people from http://scidoll.com/an-open-letter-to-tesco/)
“Your hair is red. That’s my second favourite colour.”
“What’s your first favourite colour?”
“Is that technically a colour though?”
“It is if I say so. I control words, they don’t control me. Now I imagine you want to touch my muscles. You may want to use both hands, they’re quite large.”
the actual moral of supernatural
I hope you realise this is an actual quote from Supernatural. He is an actual character from Supernatural. This was actually said ON Supernatural.
Ooh, good name. The Crimson Horror.
There are always scars. Just because you can’t see them doesn’t mean they’re not there.
This is something that’s been annoying me for a while, people seem to think you can’t be unhappy if you haven’t scars to prove it. I were diagnosed with depression 2 years ago, even my councillor didn’t think I needed help as I hadn’t self harmed. Whilst growing up I had to watch some of the closest people to me self harm, it broke them, and me. I knew from then on I wouldn’t put myself through it and because of that I don’t get taken seriously. This is for those who have problems and don’t show it. Everyone needs support, with or without scars.
This is exactly why I quit the therapy i was assigned to when I was 18… The first question they asked was what kind of harm I did to deal with the pain… and when I said I didn’t do anything and had never thought of doing anything, i found myself looking upon a councilor with a look on his face that read ‘you don’t belong here’ and a simple ‘oh’ and no further questions were asked… because I walked out…
This. everyone has their own way of releasing pain.
it is just plain stubid to just think that only those with scars suffer the most.
and it is true that having scars don’t mean that you are just seeking attention no.
They all need help. Be there scars or not.
Most of them just don’t know how to seek help. some know how to but are too afraid of… something.
is that butter
no it’s stonehenge
I can’t believe it’s not butter
