    Does diagnosis or judgement,

    or belief make something a fact? People believe in ADHD. As a difference of and within a spectrum. It is 'treated', to conform or adjust to a norm. To give people a quality of life. People generally believe that it is now more prevalent than many years ago. So they look for the...

    Where Is The Openmindedness?

    I have never understood the rejection of certain people if society today, especially in this day in age. It always seems to be the same, Homosexuals, the Disabled, Religious people, but where does it stop? I've always seen people as people, I see them for who they are not what...

    Western Society has a norm that people are expected to fall into or otherwise are not accepted for one reason or another. I am trying to get out of isolation, but it's difficult. Having epilepsy (as I do) I am viewed down upon be many. In spite of laws passed, it always comes...

    I feel like society thinks they are different

    and good for liking "thicker" girls and being supportive but in actuality they are just skinny shaming and saying they like girls with boobs and *** which is typical. It is rare for people to find actual obese people attractive.

    And Why?

    An earlier conversation I had with a friend caused me to start contemplating this issue. Why do some humans still insist on rejecting anything different than what they are conditioned to be around? When we walk through the woods, do we only chop down "certain" trees? Do we target...

    What Happened

    It's sad that we just toss people out because we don't agree with their beliefs.. what happened to tolerance? We don't have to agree, we just need to have empathy for others.. But that's just my humble opinion

    It's International Women's Day.

    .. If it were a Men's Day, it would be considered hateful. We have such a double standard in our society. Who built the bridges, skyscrapers, the car, airplanes, and all the great inventions used today? Up until the mid 20th century, who was always sent off to die in war? They...

    All human beings make up society,

    even those in prisons. When you injure the least in society, by action, word even thought, you injure all, because if society accepts the existence of some, even under some restraint, then you must also, or you are not truly a part of that society. It might sound dumb to some...

    Gay Marriage

    I hate how society expects people to be perfect. I hate what us women are all aspired to be, how we have to be married/have kids/a career, basically to have it all and if we don't succeed in this then it is almost like we are looked down upon or seen as less of a woman. I hate it...
