do you ever sit there and wonder what life must be like for people without anxiety

like they just

DO THINGS

Anxiety is an excuse

I hope you walk barefoot on a world of legos for the rest of your life

Idiots.

And Alice in wonderland was based off her opiate trips her uncle forced her to take. And he wrote down her stories and experiences and made it into a book.

You ever find a post that’s so wrong your eyes roll out of your skull? Let’s begin:

First off, most of what it says about the Mad Hatter is true. Hatmakers in the 19th century were exposed to mercuric nitrate vapors when felting animal furs to make their hats, which resulted in severe health problems. These issues included tremors, emotional instability, and physical weakness. However, by most historian’s accounts, the Mad Hatter was based mainly on Theophilus Carter, a furniture salesman whose odd affectations Carroll was well acquainted with.

The Cheshire Cat's section is where this gets maddening(pardon the pun). First off, Toxoplasma gondii and the disease it causes, Toxoplasmosis were fully unknown at the time Carroll wrote Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. T. gondii wasn’t discovered until 1908, 43 years after the book was written. The side effects of T. gondii were absolutely never considered ‘harmless’, the first confirmed case of a T. gondii infection in a human being left the dead with lesions on her eyes and brain. T.gondii can be linked to schizophrenia and suicide, but causal evidence is severely lacking. And for the love of god, schizophrenia and multiple personality disorder/dissociative identity disorder are NOT THE SAME THING.

Alice In Wonderland Syndrome is actually a real thing. It’s experienced mainly by migraine sufferers or people who have ingested hallucinogenics such as the Fly Agaric mushroom or LSD. Considering that the mushroom Alice ingested in Alice in Wonderland was not a Fly Agaric, and LSD wasn’t synthesized until 1938, AND that Lewis Carroll suffered from chronic migraines(in his diary he mentions the visual effects he commonly experienced), we can deduce that Carroll used his own experiences as inspiration for Alice’s constant size fluctuations. Again, this has nothing at all to do with schizophrenia.

The hallucinogenic properties of mushrooms have been known for centuries, any culture found in the same place as psychotropic mushrooms will have a history with them. Unfortunately, the Fly Agaric mushroom is the one that can cause AIWS, and again, it was not featured in the book. Furthermore, Fly Agaric was very rarely used recreationally by anyone, due to the wildly unpredictable nature of its effects. There is little evidence that Psilocybin mushrooms were used recreationally in any significant amount during Carroll time, though the hallucinogenic and spiritual effects would likely be well known by him.

It’s a lot of fun for dumb stoners to read all this drug shit into the story(I should know, I am one), especially since it was written in the Victorian era where basically everyone was off their tits on something or other. That being said, the comment directly above mine is complete bullshit. Lewis Carroll was not Alice Liddell’s uncle. Alice Liddell, the girl for whom the story was written, was not ‘forced to take opiates’ in order to write the books. It’s possible that Liddell did take opiates, as morphine and heroin were popular children’s medications at the time, but she was most certainly not forced into a drug-induced state in order to write a book. Jesus fucking Christ, where did they get that from?

Look, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass are very odd, very surreal books, but the links to drug use and mental illness are tenuous at best. I mean, the book was written as a gift to a 10 year old girl. Why the hell would anyone, especially in the incredibly uptight era of the Victorians, write a little girl a story about drug binging and psychosis?

The reason this gets to me is that the books do have hidden meanings. Carroll was an avid mathematician and there are many references to mathematical concepts hidden within the story. The books are also an interesting satire of the Victorian era with many allusions to the politics of the day. Interpretations of the story like those seen in the images above just spread harmful and incorrect information about drugs and mental illness.

anybody who tries to claim to me that Alice In Wonderland is just one giant allegory for drugs and mental illness will get slapped in the damn mouth

False rape accusations are an anomaly.

True rape accusations are a norm.

You’re, quite literally, more likely to be killed by a comet than falsely accused of rape.

So stop bringing them up like they’re the most important topic in discussions of rape and rape culture.

men who are artists love showing girls, who are so sad, so beautiful - girls crying in showers, girls with delicate bones curled into a fetal position. they want our eyeliner to run but never for our eyes to get puffy. they want our sadness but our anger isn’t pretty.

and they love us being girls - infantile, dependent on men. they love us when we’re broken so long as our pieces aren’t jagged.

Shanesha Taylor was arrested on March 20th by the Scottsdale Police for leaving her children ages 2 and 6 months in her car while she interviewed for a job. Ms. Taylor was homeless and could not access any child care. Her desperation to provide for herself and her children and her lack of options led her to take drastic measures in search of employment. Ms. Taylor needs support & help rather than incarceration and a criminal record that will surely decrease her chances to provide for her children in the future. We ask that Maricopa County use common-sense and provide support for Ms. Taylor and her children rather than punishment.
Shanesha Taylor is still in jail pending a $9,000 bond.

disabledgirlism:

it’s pretty common for people discussing rape culture within feminist discourse to conveniently leave out disabled girls, but this is just a casual reminder that disabled women are far more likely to be sexually assaulted, abused or raped than able-bodied women. on top of that, 50% of deaf girls and 54% of deaf boys have been sexually abused or assaulted. so please stop leaving us out of your discussion about rape culture.

Right? And can we just take a second to imagine and talk about the statistics for disabled girls and women who are living at the intersections of other disprivileges? Black disabled girls, who are often misdiagnosed? Queer disabled women? Poor or trans disabled women?

Disability is a disprivilege we do not talk about enough. Able bodied people are not talking about this enough.
