I’d like to bring up something that should really go without saying and that is really gross!!
Using the word “bipolar” to describe someone who is manipulative, angry, toxic, and possessive isn’t using that word correctly and it’s really awful if you use it in this way. It doesn’t matter if you intended for it to mean the people with bipolar disorder, it hurts.
I see this hugely popular post going around that begins by saying
This is a story of why dating bipolar girls is not a good idea
I have bipolar disorder and it has destroyed my self esteem when it comes to my relationships with people from the things that I think about myself. When people say things like this, regardless of what they mean, it only reenforces those thoughts that say I am bad and don’t deserve all sorts of relationships because I have a mood disorder. It makes me ashamed and scared that people will stop liking me or wanting to be around me because I have it and because of those awful connotations.
I am so done with seeing people use this word in this way. There are other words. Using a term for a mental illness that is a huge struggle for millions of people as a negative word is disgusting and needs to stop.
The word “bipolar” has a few meanings (psychiatric and scientific, meaning that something has two poles, which ALSO is not a synonym for bad), but it’s not what it’s being used for.
So if you’re one of those people who does this, please stop.
Hey there! I’m Laura and I’m a broke astrophysics student who needs to find some small way of getting income! I know my need isn’t as urgent as others, but I come from a family of six, and both me and my older sister are in university, so you can kind of imagine what that’s doing to my family’s funds at this moment. Getting a job is a bit out of the question, due to my hellish new schedule as well…
Well, anyways. I wanted to help out by getting some money on my own using my art. I know it’s not the best, but perhaps you can consider commissioning me?
Examples and more information under the cut! ヾ(ﾟ∀ﾟゞ)
