"He claims women shouldn’t write about themselves… I asked him Why not? and he said that white male writers, like Faulkner and Hawthorne and Mark Twain, never wrote about themselves, and that they were masters at it. And I asked him whether this didn’t come out of a tradition of being a writer but needing to keep quiet about the slaving and gunrunning and Indian killing in your family tree. In other words, I said, if white men wrote truthfully about themselves, how could they continue to fool the rest of us?"

I’m not racist or anything, but I really don’t feel comfortable with the demographics that are showing up in the media nowadays. Especially in comic books. I get that people want representation or whatever, but really? Just because a character is a different race than you doesn’t mean you can’t relate to them. You can still come to identify with and learn from a character that has a different gender than yourself or a different sexual orientation. I know this might offend someone, but I just don’t think what they’re doing right now is really necessary for good storytelling.

Anyways. Sorry for rambling. I just don’t see the point of having so many straight white dudes in comics.

help I’m having emotions about a cartoon antidepressant trying to be useful

DID YOU GUYS SERIOUSLY GIF AN ABILIFY COMMERCIAL 

yes but look at it, it cares about her and just wants to help her be able to function. It’s like “I know you’re sad. here, I’ll help you.”

LIKE OKAY THOUGH can I explain why this is exceedingly brilliant??  Because when anti-depressants work right, that’s what they DO.  They don’t make you happy or emotionless or unhealthy in any way, they make you FUNCTIONAL.  They make it so that a depressed person who can barely get out of bed can start to support themselves again and more importantly, start to THINK for themselves again without the permeating presence of depression.

Depression is a cyclical disease, that tells you to think a certain way, and, because you’re depressed, you generally believe it, and then things get worse and worse.  The ONLY thing anti-depressants do is to STOP that cycle in its tracks!!  Which is something to be ecstatic about and celebrated, even if you don’t realize it at the time, because when you’re depressed, getting out of bed is climbing Mount Everest.  Antidepressants help stop that cycle so that one day soon, getting out of bed can JUST be getting out of bed.  They don’t even expedite the recovery process in most cases, they just make recovery POSSIBLE IN THE FIRST PLACE.  So this little guy is portrayed with a fuckton more accuracy than I ever expected from a commercial.

It’s back and adorable

The above explanation is also the reason many anti-depressants are correlated with a higher suicide risk in the first several weeks. Some times a person has suicidal thoughts but the inability to even get out of bed will stop them. In the first weeks on medication they begin to function but the emotions may still be exactly what they were before.
