Lately, there have been instances where posters have disparaged another’s intellectual capacity by saying “take your meds,” as exemplified here.
Now, I, too, used to mock other people and make cracks about their mental stability, but having worked at a mental health advocacy group for a while and having heard heartbreaking stories of lives destroyed by mental illness, I don’t feel so good about those comments. I’m not one of the blue-nosed Offenderati who wishes to censor speech and act as if I were on a higher moral plane because I’m not.
I’m just saying that folks might want to think twice about the horrific struggles that the mentally ill have to endure every day and ask themselves if it’s really all that funny.
I’m sure I’ll be flamed for this OP, but I felt compelled to say something.
