TYT's own audience lashes out at them for disputing the DSM

Postby GuessTheAltAccount » Tue May 04, 2021 3:31 pm

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IimF3esREac

The story started about half an hour ago, so I'd suggest rewinding about half an hour. Basically a CIA recruitment video brought up an employee's anxiety disorder and Ana mentioned that this sort of thing comes across as an excuse for whining and is why millennials aren't taken seriously by other generations. Her own audience flew off the handle at her, more than I've ever seen in all my years of watching TYT, for daring to doubt the social sciences.

You know, the same social sciences that gave us "surveys". The same surveys respondents famously lied to in 2016.

Their next story was on on big pharma withhholding vacciness from the rest of the world now, so whether she ties this into big pharma's perverse incentive to play up "mental illnesses" to push pills on people or not remains to be seen. I'm guessing she won't.

Any of you can catch up if you play the video on 1.25x. (Or 1.5x, if you're feeling bold.) Something tells me this is going to be an interesting night.

Except anxiety disorder is 100% a real thing and not just an excuse.

Do have to wonder why it appears to society that Millennials are the only generation that seems to only suffer from massive levels of Anxiety collectively, not even the Zers are seen as that uptight.

Then again that also falls on the common belief I've seen in places that Millennials weaponize their anxiety to get their way. Usually using something like "Triggered College student Video number 472" as evidence.

Same reason society complains about this generation's music or clothing or whatever. They said the same shit in the 60s when the mods and rockers were bashing each other in.

Because it only started to become a major socioeconomic issue and entered into the minds of many around the time millennials became adults?

Also, miss me with that "zoomers don't have as much anxiety" bullshit. Zoomers have the exact same amount, if not even more. Hell, I know 4 people with anxiety alone (5 including myself, although I don't have an anxiety disorder); I have a friend group of about 11 or 12, and we're all zoomers.

Holy chicken-fried...wow. My goodman, excuse me. Let's go over your OP, shall we?

M'kay. So. Anxiety disorders, phobias, etc. are legitimate disorders, and it is NOT an excuse. And the reason later generations aren't taken as seriously is because, my goodman, and I don't know if you know this, THE PEOPLE DOING THIS ARE TREMENDOUS ASSHOLES. Anxiety is a legitimate disorder, and people who refuse to acknowledge it proliferate the mental health stigma. And if any of you dare to say you grew up before that was recognized and you turned out fine: Point one. You didn't. Don't even. Point two: even if you did, which you didn't, don't you want future generations to live better than you do?

As for this, surveys have been around for decades. This doesn't have anything to do with anything, but please, my goodman, explain how it does.

BULL. CRAP. Not every case of anxiety needs meds Not even most. But please, I'd like your sources on this. I welcome them!

It's an actual disorder. The entire generation doesn't have a goddamned victim complex, and if you believe it does, you are deceiving yourself, my goodman.

The disorder. Treating anxiety disorders helps people live their lives.

I mean, do you ask if it's the cancer that's ruining a person's life or "the sense of victimhood perpetuated by medicalizing it" too or do you just pretend that mental illnesses aren't real?

Here's a link to my post about it:

Cenk Uyghur on child rape wrote:"The kid's fourteen, what are you doing? And I tell you it's an epidemic, it's crazy right? So you gotta fire her. Seven years in prison? Seven years in prison for making some kid's dream come true. It ain't right, it ain't america. Okay, do I have a double standard? Absolutely. I-I-I hope to stick to this doublestandard for the rest of my life."


Something he hoped would last the rest of his life and has never retracted.
