honestly as someone who has been hospitalised, institusionalised, medicated and ACTUALLY stigmatised, denied proper treatment, and considered ill-equipped to know what’s best for myself, i find it downright fucking offensive when people act like using words like “crazy” or “insane” in a casual way is unforgivably “ableist”, or even worth commenting on at all. understand that by making a big deal out of someone saying that their commute to work is crazy or that their boss is insanely annoying you are literally trivialising genuine hardships suffered by those who are mentally ill. it’s fine to be upset by wording like that if you’re having a fragile moment but for the love of god have some fucking perspective.
if anyone wants a black and white portrait commission for 2/3 price (20 dollars) buy me this and it’s yours please p l e a s e

Variations on Ophelia
poppydichotomy submitted a very interesting collage essay called "Variations on Ophelia" that just got listed as Notable for Best American Non-required Reading 2014. If anyone’s interested in Ophelia generally, Poppy’s one-woman play about Ophelia & Hamlet is Opening in NYC in May of 2015 as well.
Needless to say, congrats, PoppyDichotomy! Check it out, fellow Ophelia-enthusiasts (that means you, Ophelia Defense League).
The covers of my edition of Les Misérables/Die Elenden are so gorgeous!
The credits are kind of confusing though, I’m not sure who’s the original artists, the names mentioned are Lix, De Neuville and Scott. If someone knows please feel free to replace this paragraph with the original artist!
