Thing I wrote this week at @junkeedotcom

sunili:

I have depression. I also love a lot of people with depression. I think my depression has helped me to be a relatively good friend to other people who have depression.

Luckily, not everyone has depression. But everyone probably knows and cares about someone who does. I can imagine that it’s hard to look after someone like me - I know those who’ve looked after me over the years struggled but they are wonderful and I will always love them and respect them for it.

This piece is basically an attempted how-to-guide that goes with this excellent Stephen Fry quote:

It’s hard to be a friend to someone who’s depressed, but it is one of the kindest, noblest, and best things you will ever do.

The amazeballz Steph and Alex at Junkee worked very hard to get this in to shape, and I am very grateful to them for their excellentness.

This is good.

I dunno if I’ve said this before but the stigma thing really fucks with my head. And people don’t get how stigma works. Because it’s not about thinking depressed people are crazy. It’s subtle.

One time I missed half a day of uni because I was in bed and then I did finally get there five hours late but in time to do a presentation. And when someone asked where I was I came up with the best excuse I’ve ever had - I said I had a migraine. And they said “oh that’s shit, especially today when you have that presentation!” And they asked if I was okay and it wasn’t a problem that I was still a bit not there but they didn’t fucking go on about it.

Compare this to a time I couldn’t get out of bed for work. Once again, for a single day. But work knew about the depression and so I had people calling me to make sure I was okay and then showing up at my house when I didn’t answer (because I was in fucking bed and I didn’t fucking want to talk to my fucking boss, fuck) and when I did get back to work there were Files Notes and Action Plans and people looking at me and telling me about their experiences with depression and how they hoped I was better and could cheer up. But nobody said “well, that sucks” and then moved on. And sometimes, that’s all I want.

If you see me, and I’m dressed and at work or at a social event, I’m fine. I’m doing really well, because if I wasn’t I wouldn’t be there. And yeah, ask. And if you want ask where I was last week. But don’t expect me to tell you every time I was depressed, and if I do for fuck’s sake don’t make a big deal out of it.

Some Handy Examples of How Non-Sex Working Feminists Can Aid in Critiquing the Sex Industry
Your women's studies prof: Class, do you think pornography enables male entitlement?
You: Well, according to this essay I read by someone who does porn, it doesn't make a lot of sense to just critique it as a piece of media + not a site + product of highly stigmatized labor. So, yes, it does, but that may largely be beside the point of where and how male violence occurs in relation to pornography.
That lady at your local NOW chapter: It is WRONG for men to purchase sex, therefore we must make it illegal.
You: I agree that capitalist conditions create coercive and abusive situations for those in the sex industry, but carceral solutions don't address that underlying issue.
Your younger sister: *points at a Maxim magazine cover* Isn't it wrong that there are all these sexualized pictures of women everywhere?
You: It's wrong that the male gaze is all-pervasive and our idea of the ideal woman is profoundly racist, sizeist, ableist, and cissexist. It's also wrong that these images exist within the context of a violent patriarchal culture, but the images themselves are not wrong.
Some rando in your ask box: How do we end the abuse of people in the sex industries?
Your boyfriend: Why is there so much bad sex in porn?
You: Let me show you this essay on porn by a sex worker.
Your girlfriend: Stripping is exploitative.
You: Let me show you this academic article written by a stripper.
Your aunt: Dominatrices probably think they're empowered but really--
You: Here's a thing written by a sex worker.
Your grandpa: Prostitution--
You: Here's a thing written by a sex worker.
Your cat:
You: Good point, let me read you this issue of Prose & Lore out loud.
