"it’s like freud always said," says the ‘psychologist’ character in the movie, making everyone in the audience who knows anything at all about psychology flinch involuntarily

"hannah, 21, was known to smoke marijuana on occasion and once slammed the door to her room after an argument with her parents. she also was mentally ill and dropped out of college. she had to see a therapist and was hospitalized several times for being a danger to herself. she didnt have a criminal record but she might have shoplifted makeup once or ten times. also she blogged about being a communist and used profanity, still her death might not have been entirely justified idk"
but god knows theyd actually be like,
"hannah, 21, was a strong student who got along well with her family and friends. she was a passionate writer of prose and poetry and those we interviewed described her as a quiet girl who was always kind to those around her. she suffered from mental illness, forcing her to take time off from college, but she was on her way to recovery before this awful tragedy"
real reasons bisexual women are more likely to end up in long-term relationships with men:
- huge amounts of societal pressure to be heterosexual or at least hetero passing
- rewards, both legal and social, of heterosexual marriage
- fear of coming out as bisexual, except in anonymous self-reporting studies
- fear of accidentally flirting with straight women because of the stereotypes concerning homosexuality and predatory behaviours
- disappointment/resignation after a life full of unreciprocated crushes on straight women
- negative opinions about bisexuals making it difficult to find partners within the LGBTQ community
not a reason bisexual women are more likely to end up in long-term relationships with men:
- bisexuality isn’t a real orientation and we’re all secretly faking it
the number of people i know who have a long-standing relationship with mental health services as a patient and have had an entirely positive or even just more positive then negative experience is almost zero. and sometimes it’s just “services were inefficient, costs were high” but there’s almost always at least an element of really shitty treatment from psychiatric professionals, often beyond incompetence and into bullying and abuse, especially when the patient is part of a marginalised group.
and if you are neurotypical then i want you to remember that! because doctors are people and they are just as subject to corruption and bigotry as anyone else and they wield a lot of unchecked power over the lives of neuroatypical people, and sometimes those people feel that the time and the money and above all the risks involved in seeking treatment don’t outweigh the potential benefit.
and that’s not their fault, it’s the fault of doctors who make it risky for us.

Here is a side by side comparison of how The New York Times has profiled Michael Brown — an 18 year old black boy gunned down by police — and how they profiled Ted Bundy, one of the most prolific serial killers of all time.
Character assassination much.
