and about trumps new video "scandal"

when did people become such pansies and worry about what another says, more than what they actually do?






It wasn't just what Trump said in the video. People on this forum gotta stop pretending he was just saying stuff he didn't actually do. On the contrary, that video is very damning because he was boasting about something he sometimes did, which was sexually violating women and thinking he can do it because he is a star. This matters. No one is a pansy over this. He is caught red handed over matters that are unethical and illegal and he is running for POTUS. But that doesn't stop Trump supporters from mental gymnastics and trying to pretend this doesn't matter. They give him a pass on everything. And the Trump campaign says it was just "locker room talk" which is a straight up lie and yet people are buying it.

I can understand kids being emotionally sensitive and stuff, but I feel like after a certain point simple words really shouldn't hurt you...
Having seen some people go through the worst kind of stuff and make it out admirably, I can only really see most people (myself included) as extremely spoiled and ridiculously more lucky than we believe.

Not surprising that Trump supporters support Trump for being who is (which seems to be an old-fashioned sexist pig lol).

On the contrary, that video isn't very damning because he probably was just talking shit, vaguely boasting about my view on what constitutes sexually violating women and thinking he can do it because he is a star. This doesn't matter. Some people are being pansies over this. He wasn't caught red handed over matters that are unethical and illegal, but he is running for POTUS. This has caused the hardcore anti-Trump crowd to perform vigorous mental gymnastics and trying to pretend that this is some gigantic deal. They completely ignore similar allegations about the Clintons and give them a pass on everything. And the Trump campaign says it was just "locker room talk" which I think is a straight up lie, and yet some people aren't willing to jump to conclusions about matters that affect someone's perceived character.

well that phrase is bull and people who use it must be heartless, because words can be extremely hurtful.

however i do agree that people seem to be easily offended these days. well maybe it's always been like that, idk.

I'm a psychology student in college right now. I'm just commenting because I remember my professor saying something around 30% of people in the U.S. will meet the criteria for having a disorder at some point in their lives. Other than that, here are some national mental health statistics I drudged up real quick to make sure she was right and to provide some evidence. http://www.nami.org/Learn-More/Mental-Health-By-the-Numbers

Sure. For example, Anxiety runs in my family, and 1/5 Americans will develop it in their lifetime.

I remember being told that the number of overall mental illness was closer to 1/4, but your link shows 1/3. Regardless, not a big difference, and, of these, a very miniscule percentage of these are people who suffer from serious mental illness such as schizophrenia, depression, etc.

Last, this leaves 7/10 people who do not develop a serious mental illness in their lifetime, and these are the people who go off the wall because their pizza arrived at their door 10 minutes late, or because someone told them they think the race issue in America is much more exacerbated than it actually is: these are the people I was reffering to.


Even so, words can offend anyone, but it doesn't mean they should.

FTFY

Did you even look at my link? Very few people have depression? Depression is the leading cause of disability worldwide, and according to these statistics, 1/5 adults will have a mental illness at some point in their lives. These statistics actually don't line up perfectly with what my teacher said, so I don't know why you think they do. In addition to that, I must say, every mental illness is serious. It's absurd to compare issues of race in The United States to a late pizza delivery. Regardless, you don't even care about this, so I'm not going to bother. I just wanted to make sure people wouldn't become dangerously misinformed from your earlier comment.

I think the bigger problem is people validating these 'injuries'. Someone says something mean to little Chony, and suddenly the parents are shrieking and making a huge thing out of it. Chony grows up to think that everyone should not say mean things, and that if they do, it's worse than murder. Their inability to deal with mean things leads them to self-diagnose with these newfangled psychological traumas, but they never see a doctor about it. They use this to further validate their own behavior, allowing them to say mean things in defense against saying mean things, but that's okay because they're doing it for the greater good.

The allegations against the Clinton's were investigated back in the 90s and the investigations didn't really find much of anything that held up and proved the allegations. And Trump has a long history of mistreating women and regarding them poorly. But fine, pretend that Trump video doesn't mean a thing and believe the weaselly lie from the Trump campaign that Trump was just talking shit.


I'll state two things:

1) Outside of you guys here, very many people know that video reveals that Trump committed that behavior.
2) Furthermore, there are diehard Trump supporters who believe he did the things he said in the video (!! Please, reread that line), but however, they think it is all ok because they make up absurd justifications such as "he is a star, so it really was ok" and "they let him do it and didn't say anything so it really was under consent".


Reread number 2. That is stuff I've seen posted online from diehard Trump supporters. They believe he did do those things. They come up with crazy ass things saying how it was really ok, but there is definitely a number of Trump supporters think he really did it.

I did.

"6.9% of adults in the U.S.—16 million—had at least one major depressive episode in the past year."


1/5 adults will have a mental illness at some point in their lives. These statistics actually don't line up perfectly with what my teacher said, so I don't know why you think they do.

Umm.. did you look at your link?

"18.1% of adults in the U.S. experienced an anxiety disorder such as posttraumatic stress disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder and specific phobias."


In addition to that, I must say, every mental illness is serious.

Hah. Top kek. I forgot how seriously fucked up my childhood was as I suffered from ADHD. The only thing serious that came out of that was how long it took to get waivers to get accepted into the army.


It's absurd to compare issues of race in The United States to a late pizza delivery.

I suggest you reread what I wrote.


Regardless, you don't even care about this, so I'm not going to bother. I just wanted to make sure people wouldn't become dangerously misinformed from your earlier comment.

Of course I don't really care. My comment was saying people who don't suffer from mental illness take offense to everything. Such as you. Right now. Derp

I would suggest rerouting your major to reading.

So you are saying people with clinical depression don't have a disability?

If anyone seriously espouses that, then they're wrong, or they're trolls.

I'm saying being depressed isn't a disability and never will be. Whether or not that person that's going through depression happens to also have a disability is a completely different story. Clinical depression can vary depending on the type of person, but lumping depression w/ disabilities is absolutely stupid.

Clinical depression can be very hard. The average person experiences depression at times, but people who have a clinical case of depression have a condition they suffer and struggle with and people who have it moderately bad or severely bad experience things that are a form of a disability.

I never said it isn't hard? I'm practically depressed almost every single day, but it's not because of some petty crap, nor does it make me disabled per se. I actually have a legitimate disability and refuse to be lumped in w/ someone who's depressed for crying out loud. Moderately bad or severely bad, depression is a condition that is treatable more often than not. Last time I checked, being disabled is something that severely limits you in your day to day activities; practically non-treatable? If a depressed individual refuses to go get help, that's his or her problem. They're the ones limiting themselves, NOT the depression. I realize the state/federal & insurance companies basically acknowledge depression as a disability (god knows why), but I never will in a million years. That's my take on it.
