If someone were to die at the age of 63 after a lifelong battle with MS or Sickle Cell, we’d all say they were a “fighter” or an “inspiration.” But when someone dies after a lifelong battle with severe mental illness and drug addiction, we say it was a tragedy and tell everyone “don’t be like him, please seek help.” That’s bullshit. Robin Williams sought help his entire life. He saw a psychiatrist. He quit drinking. He went to rehab. He did this for decades. That’s HOW he made it to 63. For some people, 63 is a fucking miracle. I know several people who didn’t make it past 23 and I’d do anything to have 40 more years with them.

One of the more helpful and insightful things I’ve seen about depression/suicide in the last couple of days.

simplewallflowerthoughts: I love this because it acknowledges that Robin Williams knew that he wasn’t mentally well, and he did fight it. I do not pass judgment on him for doing what he did. I don’t pass judgment on anyone who decides to stop fighting. Sometimes a life of depression and mental illness is just too much to take. Don’t get me wrong. I’m heartbroken actually. But it also isn’t my place to decide if life was bearable, or even good, for him, after fighting so long. I will be lucky to make it to 63. I applaud him for making it as far as he did and for inspiring so many along the way. 

I still think that it is a noble effort to try and encourage people to seek help, though, for those who haven’t or are struggling. Sometimes people haven’t sought help and should; we don’t know everyone else’s situations. Sometimes people seek help but aren’t helped. Sometimes, though, people don’t seek help, and it’s too late. That’s what people are saying when they say “seek help”. They’re trying to help the people who haven’t yet asked for a hand. That’s what it is, really, and that’s all it ever should be; encouragement to seek a hand if you haven’t, or aren’t. 

63 was more of a miracle, I think, than some of us know for Robin Williams. We should be remembering him and the good that he was, not judging him for how he died, because it just isn’t  anyone’s place to pass that judgment. “Don’t be like him” - I would love to be like him. Funny, witty, talented, insightful, gentle, kind… yes, he did not make it all the way to the end. But he made it as far as he could. Shouldn’t that be worth so much? We shouldn’t have to justify liking him after it happened. I don’t plan to. “Don’t be like him” should be changed to “People care about you, we know you’re depressed, but we are begging you to seek help instead of turning to suicide. We are inspired by how much you’ve done, who you are, and the fact that you’ve been fighting. We want to help you fight this battle, but it is your choice, in the end, if you do or do not.” And I sincerely hope that you do fight. I know I fight every day. I know lots of people who fight every day. These people are my hope and inspiration for something better. Deep down, I understand why a person would say, “I cannot.” But I still fight the part of myself that tells me this, and this is a noble thing. Robin Williams fought, and I don’t care that he lost. I care that he fought. He’s inspiration to me because he fought. He’s a hero to me because he fought. 

None of us actually knew the depths of his  situation, here in the public. No one knows what he was thinking. None of us can say why, but we are touched by it. It is tragic because we lost a human life, not because he did not fight for his life. He was a fighter. He was a survivor. He fought.

if artistic people are forced to take years of math and science then why don’t sciencey people have to take art and music classes

someone found a real life plot hole

boom bitch

And if you’re “bad” at art and music, then “it’s okay, not everyone has an aptitude for those kinds of things” but if you’re bad at math and science, then “you’re not smart/you’re not trying hard enough”

The media’s double standard on the Chapel Hill shooting in one image

Though a number of online publications have picked up and covered the Chapel Hill shooting story by Wednesday, most mainstream media organizations seem to have ignored it. Considering the 24-hour news cycle and how quickly most news is disseminated, the slow speed with which the news broke points to a troubling double standard.

… Example number 4739208679 of how the media paints white criminals as simply adventurous, mentally incapable or troubled. In this case, adventurous.

dekutree:

this is infuriating me

egobus:

also the girl here is only 13 years old, her boyfriend is 18 and legally an adult. This relationship is illegal and technically rape if they’ve had sex. NBC referring to them as “teen sweethearts” is completely inappropriate.

lilbrat7:

This is both kidnapping, and rape.

May I just point this dumb thing out? Cuz generally there’s nothing wrong with boys playing with toys that are targeted for girls. It seems like society’s taken this message but (correct me if I’m wrong) only when the toy in question is My Little Pony due to the number of fans. Little boys still got the treatment in the upper panels whenever they’re caught playing Bratz, Strawberry Shortcake, etc.
Also, most of the “insults” in the 2nd panel aren’t even real insults. Little boys logic.

Had this random thought back in Jakarta.
