A social issue today

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

After some thinking, I've noticed some parity between a social issue today and homosexuality throughout the 20th century.   Many institutions and the general public deemed it to be a "mental illness" and simply wrong.   I'm sure once it's accepted and people look back, they will be ashamed of their prejudice.  I suppose anyone of any generation will be upset with a social issue prevalent in their time but this just sucks.

What if that social issue has no basis in any scientific research or analysis, like gender being a spectrum and freely interchangeable or people identifying as a species other than homo sapiens not being a mental disorder or a return to superstitions like spirit animals ( even Justin Trudeau accepted it ) ? ( scientific analysis has become vastly superior now compared to how it was in the early 1900s )

Well it's between humans , not animals or things like genders.

I see. Could you give me examples of some relevant issues which you feel might be misunderstood by the general public ?

No.  You will just react negatively to it like everyone else which will prevent a decent conversation.

Great, well if you're going to be vague maybe there's a reason behind "it" being scrutinized.

Like I said I'm vague cause people react soo negatively to it and will not think straight about the subjective afterwards.

If it's an issue worth the discussion for progression then there would be no reason to be vague. ;)

In the medical world, outliers are deemed patients. They have something wrong with them. 

 

I'm not aware of it being called a "mental illness" anywhere by medical institutions because homosexuality is not an outlier anymore.


Don't talk about stale memes.

Just because something is worth discussing/should be discussed doesn't mean people want to talk about it.

Then it wouldn't be worth discussing in that case.

I was talking about how back in the day homosexuality was called a mental illness.

So this is completely irrelevant and holds no purpose?

This was mainly due to it likely being an outlier at the time.

Times have changed, and it's obviously not an outlier. That's why it's not defined as a mental illness nowadays.

Or it could also be nobody wanted to admit they were or they suppressed their feelings as it was deemed wrong.

It is accepted by nearly everyone who's sane.

I am not talking about homosexuality, I was using how it was treated half a century ago as  an example to why what I'm talking about isn't really "wrong".

Yes. I know. I'm just saying it's very ironic how even people ( l have no problem with homosexuality) who are totally fine with homosexuality will say "no that ( the social issue I'm referring to)  will never be accepted and it will always be wrong".  It'll be interesting to see how they feel in 30 or 40 years when it's widely accepted and they have been proven wrong.

The thing is, homosexuality is seen in nature, ranting on Tumblr over whatever "trendy"  disorder isn't. There are legitimate social issues that need adressing that I feel are often overlooked for first world complaining by a millenial with a bad dye job.
