I read it when I posted my comment, and STILL didn't interpret that as stereotypical... is it because it said "these people"????
I've decided not to read into that. The poster could've meant people who perform such acts as the person did in St. Louis, Newtown, or in Colorado, or many instances of gun violence...I decided to not make an assumption on what he said. Since I decided to focus on the fact that the most pressing issue, to me, is lowering the stigma in regards to being mentally healthy, I did not see it as a rationalization or a stereotype.
Or better yet, ask the poster to clarify the "these people comment"...In my experience, I am all aware of how "these people" comment can be used to mask stereotypes, even this comment has been used in my presence, against myself, plenty of times in my lifetime.
I may be looking at this with much more objectivity, but it I still stand by my comment, and better yet, my point that there needs to be an honest conversation about how we deal with ourselves holistically, especially in terms of mental health. And I'm speaking as someone who has a history of a chronic mental health trait and condition.
