“Teacher and Journalist Debbie Hayton joins us in the studio.”
I love Debbie’s take on being disordered…or “having a disorder”…
…It just means you’re not “in order” with [ie: emulating and following the formula of] everybody else.
This is paradigm shifting…because it removes “mental disorder” from the realm of “being broken” or “in the wrong”…and acknowledges you’re being judged based on what the majority is doing, or what the majority is saying.
I keep coming back to the same question, where it comes to this issue…
…Why cant we make a place for everyone in society, and accept them as the individuals they are?
Why does anyone even need to make physical and psychological modifications, in order to fit in?
Why is diverse variation so rejected in the first place?
