some of ya’ll need to fuck off about acting like all psychotic people and people who have personality disorders are toxic and abusive

like it’s one thing to be cautious around a specific person or to cut them off because they have actually been violent or abusive in some way towards you. you have to take care of yourself.

but acting like an entire group of already-marginalized and stigmatized people are all scary and toxic and should be shunned and avoided is fucked and ableist, and maybe you should also consider that you don’t know what’s in that person’s head and you don’t get to decide that you absolutely know the reason for a person’s behavior without them explicitly telling you. 

and if you feel the need to comment on a psychotic person’s post about psychosis just to tell them that you think you know more than them about it and that “criminally insane” is a real thing then i need you to go find the nearest trash can and slam dunk yourself into it. 

PSYCHOSIS =/= VIOLENCE/TOXICITY/ABUSE

Okay, Tumblr, let’s make this go viral. You all know that representation in the media is desperately needed, and this game is delivering what many of the big-name games haven’t. Pumpkin Online is made by a development team headed by an African-American woman and they’re aiming to make this game as inclusive and friendly as possible. This is a farming/romance sim mixed up with an adventure MMORPG and made incredibly diverse.

You want to play a non-binary character? You got it! You want a range of races in your NPC neighbors? Done! Clothing choices and body features not restricted by gender? It’s in there! Relationships in no way affected by gender or lack of gender? Yes, that too!

Let’s get this thing going viral and help promote the Kickstarter (link in the article) so that everyone gets the chance to play the character they want to play. Reblog buttons, do your thing!

YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO YOU GUYYYYSSSSSSSSSSSS

reblogging this again with a link to their Kickstarter here

one difference between cats and dogs is that dogs do absolutely nothing to mask their clinginess while cats pretend it’s a coincidence they’re in the same room as you 97% of the time

DBT Handbook

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a form of therapy created by Marsha Linehan, PhD. It is a modified version Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) with a focus on Mindfulness, which is pulled from Eastern mindfulness techniques. DBT was originally created to treat chronically suicidal and self-injuring individuals with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), but has since been proven effective for many other mental illnesses including, but not limited to: depression, anxiety, PTSD, eating disorders, substance abuse, bipolar disorder, and self-injurers.

more info on DBT here and here

I first learned DBT two years ago at Timberline Knolls when I did residential, and it helped so much that I did a DBT intensive outpatient program when I got home from there. After “graduating” from my IOP, I created my own version of our DBT handbook that I could keep forever, basically. It took a long time- 28 pages- but it was worth it!

I wanted to share it with you all because I think everyone should learn DBT, whether they have mental health disorders or not!

this is like THE MOST HELPFUL STUFF EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! everyone should look into this. it truly helps with life itself.

People look down on McDonald’s employees but fail to realize that if all these folks left McDonald’s and pursued “better careers”  your ass wouldn’t be able to get a McDouble with an Oreo McFlurry at 3am.

"Society confers privileges on men, but transgender men have yet to share in those privileges."

Skylar Crownover, student body president of women-only Mills College and transgender man who transitioned soon after he enrolled

Guess he was just lucky getting the privilege to be a male student body president at a women’s college :)

And y’wonder why trans women are bitter about being excluded from women’s spaces at every turn, while trans men are allowed in.

Seriously, this is just like… that in microcosm. Wow.
