i’m watching someone’s draw my life video and she talked about her happy childhood but then told the SADDEST STORY about how her grandparents died suddenly and unexpectedly because of radioactive rain from chernobyl and her whole family was traumatized and then she said “but other than that i had a very happy childhood”
what’s with ppl talking about how their lives were ‘normal’ before x, y, and z happened? thats that shit that brings up problems.
what is normal? is it classist? sexist? racist? homophobic/heterosexist? ableist?
i just hate the use of the word “normal” to describe life before any major/minor event.
my parents are generally really normal and sane when it comes to social and political beliefs but they are incredibly anti-psychiatry and anti-therapy like they think it doesn’t work and most diagnoses are bullshit
i really wonder where that came from
they are so normal otherwise
U.S. pilot makes a mistake and drops a bomb on an Afghan wedding, killing 30. This happened today as well.
update: this happened about 9 years ago, and according to that particular article, it was reported, at least in the BBC. i agree that there is a huge imbalance in what is reported, but this did not happen at the same time as the boston marathon bombing. this happened in 2002.
