Also closing on four decades. Difference is I'm not trying to push a dangerous conspiracy theory that justifies being insensitive because of some idea that people are faking their feelings or whatever with absolutely no evidence. I used my wisdom to not get roped into dangerous beliefs to protect my worldview that people should handle their mental issues on their own an that the people around them have no role or responsibility.Sigh. Forget it. You guys want a monster. That ins't what I am. But you also can't see how ridiculous this is and how obvious it is there is BS afoot. I don't know what else to say. Maybe I am old and out of touch. I think this stuff is causing people to behave in much more negative and unhealthy ways. Just based on the wisdom I've gained being alive four decades, it isn't an idea I can get behind.
I mean, honestly: 'social script'?
And going back to the 'well people will dismiss mental issues because of people 'faking'' deal. You know who is the problem there? The jerks being dismissive of people. Every time. Because they're using the idea of people 'faking' to justify being bad people.
Edit: Also? 40 is nowhere near old enough to use 'out of touch' as an excuse.
