like honestly if you’re a dude with a huge following I think the best feminist activism u can do is just to reblog women’s voices i really think you should not be giving ur opinion on anything feminist whatsoever just knowing that people are gonna take what u say to be the FeministTruth when u really have no place speaking about it at all

and that is why men don’t like you

what about my post made you think that i want men, as a group, to like me

Just so everybody knows, the mirror is actually more reliable than the camera. Even though people say “the camera never lies”, it distorts your photographs a little bit. It has to turn a 3d image (you in real life) to a 2d image (a photograph) and consequently skews the proportions a little bit.
Also, “photogenic” is a real thing. Certain faces photograph well and others don’t. It’s all down the angles, proportions and size of your features.
Have you ever seen someone stunning who looks great in professional photographs and not in candids? Yeah, that’s because there’s a huge difference between a professional and an amateur. Professionals know how to minimise the issues cameras have. Lighting, angles and even the distance you are away from the camera plays a part (the amount of distortion varies depending on how close you are).
TL;DR if you think you look great in the mirror but not in the photo, trust the mirror. You look great!

NOT ONLY THAT, but when you look in a mirror, you’re seeing your face in motion, how others would see it. In a photograph, you’re still, and it can make small flaws and the like seem a lot more prominent, despite them being quite minuscule in person.

Also! Also, when you see yourself in the mirror you are looking at you face reverse of how a camera pics it up. No face is perfectly symmetrical so you get so used to seeing a mirrored version of your face that when it’s flipped in a picture you subconsciously notice the tiny differences in your face and thus you think you don’t look right.

I have never felt so relieved and beautiful thank you guys


Also there’s nothing actually wrong with having a fat face?

Very true! Thanks for pointing it out.

The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that psychiatrists cannot reliably tell the difference between people who are mentally stable and those who are mentally unstable.

8 mentally stable people were granted admission into 12 different hospitals. They all told the same story of how they would hear a voice inside their head, it was unclear but often said “empty”, “hollow” and “thud”. 

Right after they were admitted, the patients stopped showing any signs of abnormality. They took part in activities and talked to faculty and other patients as they would normally. 

None of the psychiatrists ever stopped to say “I think they are getting better” or “they seem absolutely fine now” In fact, nurses and psychiatrists took normal activity such as walking or writing and attempted to represent it as a form of pathological behavior. 

For example, staff would point to patients waiting outside the lunchroom as a form of oral-acquisitive syndrome, when really they were just bored and were anticipating their meal. 

It’s interesting to note that even though staff didn’t recognize that these people were completely fine, patients recognized that they didn’t seem to have any problems.

This study highlights how powerful labels can be.

SOURCE & MORE INFORMATION

EVIL EXPERIMENT

Wow…this also potentially bespeaks how the people who are charged with making these patients better are only trying to create terminology and atmosphere that keep them institutionalized.
That’s pretty disturbing.

To anyone saying “well they said they heard voices obviously the doctors are going to look at them with a weary eye”

You missed the point.

They were supposed to detect the patients getting better and instead of being able to tell that, they took any action that the patients performed and totally distorted it and blew it to epic proportions to make them seem completely and utterly abnormal to a point where the patients were institutionalized for months. 

Also, sixpenceee, you missed the second part to this experiment - equally chilling, in my opinion. One hospital’s administration was angered by Rosenhan’s experiment, and challenged him to send impostor patients - mentally stable people masquerading as mentally unstable people - to their facilities. Their staff would then turn those pseudopatients away. Long story short, Rosenhan OK’d this part of the experiment. 193 people went to that hospital in that experiment period looking for help. They flagged 41 people as impostors and had doubts about another 42.

Rosenhan sent no one.

The staff of this hospital flagged impostor patients where none had existed.

That’s really worrying…

This is terrifying 

I think some of the commentary here is spot on; other parts of it not so much.

The terrifying thing at the heart of this is that institutions exist at all and that it is considered okay to subject anyone to that treatment, not that a person without disabilities could mistakenly be put in an institution.

I think this experiment was important because it shows how psychiatric staff can and will pathologize anything that inmates do (and their treatment of the abled inmates in the experiment will not be written off as deserved), but it is terrible that institutionalization has to happen to an abled person before most people will pay attention.It also shows psychiatric labels and judgments as being based on pretty much nothing, which is important for people to understand. (Yes, there are mental health disabilities, and some of what the psychiatric system says about them is accurate - but the way the system is set up, anything can be called pathological, and “treated”/punished, just because the system says so. Case in point, Oppositional Defiant Disorder. Not everything labeled as a psychiatric disorder is actually a disability, and people with the conditions that are actually disabilities do not deserve the treatment that being psychiatrized gets them.)

Regardless of setting, disabled people are pathologized.

Why is it so difficult to understand that if someone is raped or molested, it’s not their fucking fault.

Whether they’re drunk, high, wearing no clothes, or too young to even know what’s going on, it’s not their fucking fault.

This teen’s horrific injuries are why we need to end bullying right now

Last month, Joshua Davies, 18, fell 50 feet from a bridge while trying to run away from a gang of bullies. The teen, who is autistic, broke his arms, legs and feet, as well as his spine in four places.

"Joshua and his friend were walking by the river, when they realized some boys were following them. They heard them shout, ‘There they are – let’s get them!’ and climbed onto the steel supports of the bridge to get away," Michael Morgan, Davies’ stepfather, told Wales Online. Then the boys began throwing stones, he said. "One of the stones hit Joshua on the shoulder, then another hit him on his heel, and he lost his grip and fell."

As much as I want to believe this, it would be great if it was true, but I’ve seen and heard nothing of Muslims condemning ISIS save for one picture.

The funny thing is, you just completely proved the point being made in the tweet, clearly you haven’t been listening to Muslims at all:

Isis terror threat: Leading British Muslims issue fatwa condemning terror group


Campaigners march through London to protest against ISIS attacks on Iraqis and Syrians


Islamic scholars condemn expulsion of Iraq’s ‘Christian brothers’


World’s Most Populous Muslim Nation Declares ISIS Support Illegal


Egyptian Islamic Authority Issues Fatwa Against ISIS


Global Protests Against ISIS Attack on Christians

This is just a taster. Now run along and do some research before making petty generalisations.
