Balls to it

I've long dealt with people dismissing my takes on #mentalhealth as I'm an aloof academic who only deals in 'the science'. Ergo I rank lower than someone with 'real experience' (e.g. Hari), apparently

You want to know why I'm so invested? I'll tell you


And yes, there is talk of suicide in this, so #TW and so forth. Apologies in advance for any distress, feel free to mute/block/unfollow if that's a bit much.

Why do I care so much about mental health being covered/explained correctly & compassionately, when I've no (known) issues myself? Other than 'It's obviously the right thing to do and only a heartless prick could think otherwise', that is?

As ever, it started in childhood

Sobre saúde mental na academia. Já contei essa história algumas vezes, mas vamos lá. Trigger Warning. #SetembroAmarelo
Fiz meu doutorado em Cambridge, com bolsa CAPES. Era um fudido, pois a bolsa era OK mas a cidade era cara. Isso acabava me juntando com outros fudidos: africanos, latinos e russos.
Eu dividia a primeira casa com 14 pessoas, era o menor aluguel do College. O casarão tinha sido do Fisher, BTW. A primeira pessoa que me recebeu foi o Alex, um físico russo. Foi um dos meus melhores amigos de Cambridge. A gente era uma dupla que trabalhava muito e gastava pouco.

I was going to see Captain Marvel today out of...idk, a sense of duty? I never MIND watching Marvel movies the first time; they're entertaining, just not rewatchable for me. I got all the way to buying the ticket and realized, "I really DO NOT WANT to see this." Here's why.
#tw #transphobia This movie has characters checking a character's genitals to determine if it's male or female and it's meant to be a joke. Just reading about it feels like violence to me. It's so distasteful. I hate this.
The movie has been sold as LOOK THIS IS A WOMAN SUPERHERO, like they deserve a cookie for taking more than a decade to have a woman headlining a movie. It's patronizing and frankly fucking irritating.

What is being hidden in the documents from Judge Kavanaugh's time in the Bush White House? We the People and all Senators deserve to know before any hearings. #NoToKavanaugh #StopKavanaugh #ReleaseTheRecords #TW
Judge Kavanaugh changed his position on impeaching a sitting president after he aggressively orchestrated Ken Starr’s investigation of a Dem president. NO ONE is above the law. #NoToKavanaugh #StopKavanaugh #TW

Russian hackers penetrated the election systems of 7 states and targeted 21. They could wreak havoc on our election should they choose to. Congress must fully fund the states to protect against these attacks! #ProtectOurVote #PaperBallotsNow #TW
15Congress must work to inform the citizens of the use of "dezinfomatsiya" by Russia in an attempt to sway the views of the American voters. The people must be informed when false information is planted by a bad actor. #ProtectOurVote #PaperBallotsNow #TW
The Deter Act and its severe sanctions against foreign interference in our elections is one line of defense for 2018 midterm elections. Congress must pass it to restore country's faith in elections! #ProtectOurVote #PaperBallotsNow #TW
