WELL THAT WAS UNEXPECTED. woah.
Stop saying you want an Augustus Waters, if you’re not going to be a Hazel Grace.
A guy with good intentions
dear broni friendzoni, it is almost impossible for a girl to go anywhere without fear of getting assaulted, if a guy walked up to us and immediately said he wanted us to go to the movies with him alone the very first time he met us, we have every right to be creeped out and weary, stop telling girls that if they want to find love they have to trust every “nice guy” they meet.
sincerely a girl who got sexually assaulted because she was left alone with a boy she only met that day <3
the year is 2053. a girl lays on her bed wearing vintage ugg boots. ‘I was born in the wrong generation’ she sighs as she listens to taylor swift and cries over a one direction poster.
some kids are actually gonna be like this you do realize that
The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that psychiatrists cannot reliably tell the difference between people who are mentally stable and those who are mentally unstable.
In 1970, 8 mentally stable people were granted admission into 12 different hospitals. They all told the same story of how they would hear a voice inside their head, it was unclear but often said “empty”, “hollow” and “thud”.
Right after they were admitted, the patients stopped showing any signs of abnormality. They took part in activities and talked to faculty and other patients as they would normally.
None of the psychiatrists ever stopped to say “I think they are getting better” or “they seem absolutely fine now” In fact, nurses and psychiatrists took normal activity such as walking or writing and attempted to represent it as a form of pathological behavior.
For example, staff would point to patients waiting outside the lunchroom as a form of oral-acquisitive syndrome, when really they were just bored and were anticipating their meal.
It’s interesting to note that even though staff didn’t recognize that these people were completely fine, patients recognized that they didn’t seem to have any problems.
This study highlights how powerful labels can be.
Wow…this also potentially bespeaks how the people who are charged with making these patients better are only trying to create terminology and atmosphere that keep them institutionalized.
That’s pretty disturbing.
To anyone saying “well they said they heard voices obviously the doctors are going to look at them with a weary eye”
You missed the point.
They were supposed to detect the patients getting better and instead of being able to tell that, they took any action that the patients performed and totally distorted it and blew it to epic proportions to make them seem completely and utterly abnormal to a point where the patients were institutionalized for months.
Also, sixpenceee, you missed the second part to this experiment - equally chilling, in my opinion. One hospital’s administration was angered by Rosenhan’s experiment, and challenged him to send impostor patients - mentally stable people masquerading as mentally unstable people - to their facilities. Their staff would then turn those pseudopatients away. Long story short, Rosenhan OK’d this part of the experiment. 193 people went to that hospital in that experiment period looking for help. They flagged 41 people as impostors and had doubts about another 42.
Rosenhan sent no one.
The staff of this hospital flagged impostor patients where none had existed.
That’s really worrying…
This is terrifying
This was conducted in 1970, so I wonder how much has changed since then
OMG REBLOG THIS & LOOK AT UR BLOG ITS COMPLETELY DIFERENT
iM CHIR YING BC THE WAY IT LOOKS ON YOUR BLOG SEND HELP

I think this is a good example of how the world should work.
Massachusetts has wasted no time passing new legislation to replace the women’s clinic “buffer zone” law that was struck down by the Supreme Court just weeks ago.
Massachusetts has reacted to the Supreme Court “Buffer Zone” decision with what New England Public Radio called “almost unprecedented speed”.
The Boston Globe reports that less than one month after the Supreme Court struck down a law requiring abortion protesters to stay 35 feet away from clinic patients, Massachusetts state legislators have fast-tracked a new clinic protection act.
FUCK YES, MASSACHUSETTS.
