is it just me who violently hates the pictures of brain scans with slogans about how the brain can get sick?
hate hate hate hate hate them
with all the hate
diagnosis does not work that way
being crazy does not work that way even for people who have clearly neurologically based mental illnesses that respond to medication in a straightforward way
and also just
there’s this message that ~abuse broke your brain forever~
and I’ve seen some pretty awful things done to adopted kids in the name of that
NOPE NOPE NOPE
Yep. I despise it for neuroscience reasons too. There’s a reason diagnosis by brain scan is restricted to things like tumors and lesion locations — statistically significant differences almost always show up in population averages. A single scan is too messy for diagnostic purposes.
I mean you can’t even reliably diagnose *epilepsy* by brain scans, and that’s much better understood than anything in the category of mental illness.
It’s just… disconcerting when people make up science to fit their ideology.yes these are all reasons I hate it it is such BULLSHIT and and *flails* promoting the solely medical model exclusively HURTS PEOPLE
Yes especially given how many people who have severe struggles that are completely dismissed because they have no obvious physical symptoms.
These things totally play into that.and especially with the problems they singled out, so often they’re at least partially due to life circumstances, depression and anxiety and and? There IS ABSOLUTELY chemical only depression that responds to treatment with medication but that’s about themost widely known form and we need to pay more attention to people do not fit that model
the science on those posts is just sooo bad and it’s seriously annoying : /
you can make a better point by actually representing the science we DO have which, fyi, is not depressed brain vs “”normal”” brain.
i know it’s my fault for reading savage love in the first place (i was waiting) but jfc he actually made me cry today
he answered a letter from a man who pretends to be a lesbian to cyber on omegle, who asked him if that makes him an asshole bc lesbians have told him that it does (it does)
