THIS IS WHAT I’M SAYING ALL THE TIME WHEN I TELL PEOPLE BEING DEPRESSED IS THE MOST HEALTHY THING TO BE IN THIS TOXIC SOCIETY
“BEING DEPRESSED IS THE MOST HEALTHY THING TO BE IN THIS TOXIC SOCIETY” I think that is one of the best things I’ve ever read.
yeah i am Not Okay With This
Yeah, because sleeping 12 hours a night and failing to apply for jobs, write papers, or leave the house for the past eleven months has been totally great for my health.
DISLIKING THE STATE OF THE WORLD IS NOT THE SAME THING AS DEPRESSION.
IF DEPRESSION IS THE HEALTHY RESPONSE WELL I GUESS I’M GOING TO TRY MY DAMNDEST TO BE UNHEALTHY
BECAUSE I HAVE BEEN DEPRESSED AND I DON’T. FUCKING. LIKE IT.
I WILL GLADLY SELL OUT TO A SICK SOCIETY IF IT MEANS NOT WANTING TO DIE ANYMORE
Yeah fuck that shit.
There is nothing healthy about depression.
Feeling temporary frustration,sadness, anger, etc. at injustice in the world =/= depression.
You don’t want to feel depression. You don’t want to wake up every morning and your first thought is, “I don’t want to be here anymore.” You don’t want to look at your family, friends, and loved ones and feel ashamed because you can’t seem to perform the same daily tasks they do because those things feel so physically overwhelming it makes you want to weep.
Like, shut the fuck up. Please. Stop using depression as a synonym for upset because they are not the same fucking things, ok?
In summary, this is what they’d do:
- ban abortions at around six weeks
- close the only abortion clinic in the state
- eliminate sex ed for high-risk teens
- ban abortion 20 weeks post-fertilization
The good news?
A bill to give legal rights to fertilized eggs failed to pass: 49 to 43.
