Terrible things people post on social media

oh come on, they both had to sit up and everything

if the photographer was a perfectionist they might have a momentary ache in the temporomandibular joints

Sacking has been done. In the words of a friend tonight, “I had an uncle who’s now an auntie and I don’t want to listen to transphobic bullshit”

“Hello, is that the Travelodge? Can I book a room for a promotional photo shoot next Tuesday please, to mark our spontaneous decision to become engaged?”

Idk why, maybe it’s the infantile language, but seeing this in my fb feed has made me so unbelievably cross.

Edit: I’ve just realised it’s because I think twee bullshit like this related to mental health does more harm than good. I’m all in favour of raising awareness and reducing stigma around these issues, but shit like this just trivialises it and undermines those whos illness is more than just “I have a sad”.


#3709

You’re not alone there, I’m furious at that


#3710

Yeah, that’s awful. :rage:


#3711

I really hate the one that says you can cure a sad person by rolling them in a blanket like sushi


#3712

Are they ghosts? Ghosts are great, I’ll give them that.


#3713

Yeah it’s horrendously patronising. “When I feel sad I just put on my cape and go on adventures until I feel better!” is such a horrible belittling thing to tell someone.


#3714

It reads like some grotesque not-deliberately-a-parody of those kinds of things in which the culpability of late capitalism on the mental health of the population at large is totally disavowed or something

It’s weirding me out old school

Ergh ergh ergh


#3717

What even is this?


#3718

Roscoe and Marlon post in pictoral form.


#3719

Oooft!


#3720

Not that there’s any reason to defend this nonsense, but I don’t think it automatically reads as someone’s take on depression. Obviously it would be grotesque if it was, but perhaps “I have a sad” just means “I’m upset”, and we’re reading too much into it.


#3721

yeah, i can see that. the context though was that it was posted on fb by someone who posts about mh a lot, i guess that’s why i took it that way.


#3722

Fair enough it that was the context, it’s probably not worth the benefit of the doubt.

AAaaaaaarrrghghhhh
