Vegetarianism I don't consider a mental illness. Ovo-lacto vegetarianism allows for protein, and is a kinder, more healthful diet, second only to pescatarianism.

Veganism is widely regarded as orthorexia, and is dedicated to reducing protein and fats, so important for the brain.

Microblogging on Facebook, shunting all of one's interactions with friends and family to "stages" like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram is mental illness.

I'm dittoing "declaring one's pronouns." Enbies should be prepared for any of two situations: nobody uses their preferred third-person plural pronouns because they won't mention them, or people will use the third-person neutral pronoun "it."

Fine r49, you fucking scold.

Employing a "feeding therapist" for your picky eating child. I have a friend who went through this with his finicky 4 year old. His wife almost lost her marbles because the kid didn't like eating. Thought the kid was gonna starve and be stunted, really drove herself bonkers over it. Friend kinda got sucked in. At no point was this child ever underweight to the extent that it was a health problem. Anyway they spent tens of thousands of dollar on feeding therapists, other child therapists, nutritionists, you name it. The kid is 12 now and fine. She was just a picky eater. But I see more and more parents lamenting their child with "sensory issues" who won't eat anything but tater tots and it's like, I'm pretty sure this isn't a thing. I don't think kids in the third world starve themselves. And I don't think kids in the first world do, either. I don't think that happens. Otherwise normal children just starving themselves into dangerous levels of underweight or even death (I am NOT talking about anorexia, I'm talking about very young children with picky palates, which is a lot of them). but there's this whole industry making bank off these neurotic aprents who would do best spending all their $ on therapy for themselves.

And who gives them tater tots on the first place? it's not the kid's fault you fed them child-friendly crap and now they won't eat anything else. That's your fault for being a lazy, spineless little bitch.

It’s apparent few if any posters know an actual person, diagnosed with a mental illness, such as schizophrenia . This condition is driven by body chemistry. It is often acquired in early 20’s.

A completely normal functioning person acts out in inappropriate ways, such as running naked through the streets.

There is a little known condition, agnosia. Not sure about the spelling. It means that the ill person does NOT believe anything is wrong with them.

That is why they refuse to take medication. Would you take medication, for diabetes , for example if some doctor assured you you had it, even if there were medical records .

You don’t believe you are ill, so you refuse meds. Mentally ill people are scorned for refusing meds, because that would help them, but they don’t know that.

r77, there is a link between having tattoos and being at an increased risk of suicide.

Thomas Joiner's interpersonal theory of suicide fascinates me. Basically, the theory argues that it's hard to kill oneself, and that two things have to occur in the same person to lead to a successful suicide: a desire to die, and the capacity to kill oneself. The first is obvious. The second, he believes, comes mostly from a habituation to pain, which can be gained through any numbers of ways -- self-mutilation, physical abuse, drug use, combat, past suicide attempts, and tattoos.

Not to say there is a one-to-one correspondence between self-mutilation and tattoos, but I think there must be some underlying psychopathology.

What kind of filtering system do you use for the water? And can I have free range chicken instead of duck in the Indonesian risotto but with the miso-citrus sauce from that other dish instead of the Indonesian? Can I have the fried langoustines but fried without batter Of any kind, no, just fried, but air fried, not oil fried? I want the potatoes and squid dish but can you cook and serve them separately?

It's OP's guilt speaking. Back in the 90s when I became a vegetarian I sometimes had verbally violent reactions from some inviduals who found out I didn't eat meat. A fuck buddy who perfectly well knew I'd been a vegetarian for years invited me to a dinner at his home and, surprise surprise, he'd cooked meat. When I refused to eat it he got all upset and started blaming me for being a picky asshole. Well, he had other issues as well but that was one of the reasons I cut him out completely of my life.

Some people take it as a personal insult that someone else is not like them. With animal killing it's most probably the guilt that's making them react so violently. They know they don't need meat to survive and feel guilty about it since in the end there are very few psychopaths among us who don't feel any empathy towards animals. Most of us still remember being little kids and loving all the fuzzy bunnies and puppies.

Maybe a bit surprisingly I don't necessarily condemn hunting, or at least not hunting that's done right and with minimal suffering to the animal. It's the meat industry that's responsible for most of the suffering animals must endure. And then people buy the meat, let it rot in the fridge and then throw it out. What a life.

The need to control and modify each component of a dish does not vanish when you become poor. I feed broke dudes who will suck suppurating cancer dick for heroin, but have to have their salmon on a different paper plate with aioli not ranch.

There seems to be a new breed of hausfrau. These women hang out obsessively at their kids’ (and they always lots of kids) schools. Not really doing much, but claiming to be doing volunteer work. But they are there. All day. Every day.

It starts to look suspiciously like arrested development. Like they can only be comfortable hanging out with children, or they are trying to recreate their own school days. There tends to be a pack of these women hanging out together at the school.

If you want to hang out at the elementary school all day, why not get a job there?

It’s so fucking weird. And no telling what a number it’s doing in their kids, who must grow up thinking women don’t have their own lives or identities.

R122 I know many many more carnivores who are major assholes. And they make a major fuss of there isn't a substantial portion of meat for them to eat at meals. Should we categorized all carnivores as such too?

by Anonymousreply 13808/01/2020

I'm relaying my experience R138. Don't be so sensitive. I didn't categorize all vegetarians or vegans at all though your response may bolster OP's comment.

PS. If anyone is bitching about any portion of food at a dinner party they are clods no matter what they eat.

R145 the difference is people have a choice now how to get their calories. In the past, they often didn’t. There are many near vegetarian and vegan cultures in ancient history as meat was so scarce. Jesus, why do you guys get such a bee in your bonnet about vegans. People are different, get over it.

R149 has apparently never had to sit through the exact same smug vegan lecture over and over from every goddamned vegan out there.

I mean, there are some that aren't like that, but they're a tiny minority. Most vegans I've met are in it to lord their moral superiority over everyone else, and/or be the center of attention at every meal time, quizzing the waiter for half an hour while everyone else rolls their eyes.

Nope, not a vegan. I enjoyed a lovely spatchcocked chicken for dinner actually. It’s from this cookbook. You should try it, it’s delicious. I just abhor ignorance and hyperbole. Why does the fact that some don’t want to eat meat bother you so much? It literally doesn’t affect you in any way.

R30 - I have a friend who is a psychologist who says that Keeping Up With the Kardashians is not only a sign of the lowbrow nature of modern American society but also of the fact that young Americans tend to be much lonelier than other cultures. Most cities and suburbs are built for cars so time is spent in the car. Technology has taken away actual human interaction. These factors, among others, made the Kardashians their millions...a generation who found in them some sort of "friends" and "girls next door"...they provided gossip, a group, a big family (sort of the way our ancestors used to live in groups with lots of siblings and offspring).

So yes, a sign of a modern mental health challenge: isolation and it's ensuing results.

by Anonymousreply 17308/01/2020

The obsession that a lot of people have with pets these days is imo tied to the amount of adults with no children. On a gay board you are going to have a larger amount of adults with no children so will see more obsessive behavior generally. Particularly women with no children.

R175 - you meet them in the upper middle classes of select parts of LA. For example, when I worked out in Woodland Hills or WeHo at Equinox a lot of the trainers or yoga instructors were. They kept it up sporadically. The trainers did that stuff anyway because their whole world was about protein powders and nut milks and the semi-affluent or ultra-affluent there had the time to do it and nothing better to do with themselves.

I would say because so much meat in the US is full of hormones that it's hard to become organic, hormone-free, no antibiotics in all things. It is also time consuming and all-absorbing. I personally found them AND vegetarians annoying. When we went out, boom, party pooper had to announce he/she couldn't partake because "I am a vegetarian/vegan/pescatarian/100 percent plant-based".

R179 - and that is one of the reasons I feel more and more that life in the US has kind of lost it's charm. You can work like a dog and still not be able to be in a place like that and get stuck in a homophobic hell. You have to be lucky to be among those vegan lunatics and that is as good as it gets.

R183 - no you don't have to justify it but when it becomes preachy and holier-than-thou like in much of the LA culture it can become a bit like the right wing. They become like a tribe in certain social circles and heaven forbid you order some chicken breast or yoghurt because they jump with endless tales of the evil of meat and dairy just as you are about to put some damn food in your mouth after a long day. It's like a cult in some places.
