"Anxiety is not rude. Depression is not selfish. Schizophrenia is not wrong. Eating disorders are not a choice. Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder is not crazy. Mental illness isn’t self-centred, anymore than cancer is self-centred. It’s a medical illness."
got feedback about my first paper of the semester
This is enormously entertaining and insightful. At the level at which it operates—as general advice to would be consumers of the arts—it strikes a strong chord of exploration, inclusiveness, critical thinking and all points of aesthetic inquiry in between. Of course, as you explain in the notes, opposing ideologies of elitism or self involved privilege) are also present and, to some, more compelling. I liked the way you named those and the ideologies you prefer. The stories and characterizations, likewise, are engaging because they show us easily the choice: do we belong in Ben’s story of arts-inquiry or not? Your self-awareness of ASKING people to join you while not demanding that they do is wonderful. Keep up the good work!
