And how that most often happens in middle and high school?Well guess who this show’s target demographic is That’s right The same vulnerable depressed self hating group that already has the tendency to think of suicide as an appropriate optionI have three younger siblings My sisters are seventeen and fifteen; my brother is twelve My sisters and each and every one of their friends have watched this fucking show I begged my brother not to watch it even though all of his friends have seen itDo you understand that? My twelve year old brother is being left out of conversations jokes references group chats and budding friendships because he hasn’t watched a show that centers on suicide and sexual assault Do you see what the stakes of this are? I’m not just some melodramatic reviewer without a life trying to ruin a show that people likeEvery student in every middle and high school in America will be told to watch this show And the author the producers the directors and adapters couldn’t even be bothered to consider the repercussions of their actionsTAPE #4 Having problems? Just kill yourselfThis show doesn’t depict the benefits of therapy of antidepressive medication hard when your protagonist doesn’t have a diagnosis of confiding in your loved ones The only potential solution offered within the narrative is suicide And as I talked about earlier it works out pretty fucking well for Hannah BakerTAPE #5 Why is this being treated like fucking Bring It On?I swear to God I’m going to open Facebook tonight and someone will have shared a Buzzfeed uiz called “How Would You Kill Yourself If You Were On Thirteen Reasons Why?” Y’all can’t fucking have this both ways Pick a lane is this show intense and important bringing attention to under discussed issues in a serious and mature way or do you want to know which character you are based on your cupcake preferences? This either is or isn’t a joke It’s up to youTAPE #6 There’s a difference between triggering content and thisThe show gives trigger warnings Cool That’s not even sarcastic I think that’s greatBut if you’ve seen the show you know some of the graphic imagery goes so fucking beyond what any viewer would expectMy friend who has struggled with depression and suicidal thoughts and is triggered by sexual assault had a series of panic attacks due to this show But she finished it against my urging because she thought it would give some important message or theme to the audience watching it But it doesn't And she put herself through that for nothingTAPE #7 This isn’t how suicidal thoughts workHannah has reasons for committing suicide It’s like there was a straw that broke the camel’s back Suicidal thoughts aren’t like thatIf you’re thinking seriously about committing suicide it’s not because of a baker’s dozen carefully delineated causes It’s because everything feels impenetrably incurably never endingly awful It feels like there are no bright spots and no way out The difference? Everybody feels like Hannah Baker does Everybody has the humiliating moments and regrets that like haunt them before they sleep every night But not everybody has severe depression Trying to euate the two is HORRIFIC It both reduces the trauma of having depression and indicates suicide as an option for people who may have never considered it otherwiseTAPE #8 Don’t tell teenagers not to go to authority figuresMaking the guidance counselor a villain is maybe one of the most irresponsible attempts at drama in this stupid fucking narrative The absolute last thing you should be doing is giving any indication to a vulnerable group that going to a trusted adult won’t work out wellTeenagers everywhere This book and show are total fucking bullshit Your guidance counselors know exactly what to do If you’re feeling like something is wrong or experiencing suicidal thoughts tell someone If you feel safe to confide in a guidance counselor do it If you don’t find another trusted a

Mobi Thirteen Reasons Why

Thirteen Reasons WhyEtte tapes recorded by Hannah Baker–his classmate and crush–who committed suicide two weeks earlier Hannah’s voice tells him that there are thirteen reasons why she decided to end her life Clay is one of them If he listens he’ll f WARNING I did not like this book If you did and would hate it if someone me ranted and bitched about it then DO NOT READ THIS REVIEWREVIEW I don't know why this book is so popular And I honestly don't know what all the rave is about I heard so many great things about this novel that's why I read it While this was a good book well written and allthe plot was just not good enough—no the reasons leading to Hannah Baker killing herself were not believable enough for me I mean sure they did some horrible things to her in high school that doesn't mean you should just go off and commit suicide As far as I'm concerned those kinds of situations happen to everyone And I don't believe for one second that no one noticed that she wanted to commit suicide What about her haircut? Didn't the author mention that the teacher passed out a flyer called The Warning Signs of a Suicidal Individual? And wasn't there A sudden change in appearance on top of the list? What about Giving away possessions? Didn't they discuss suicide in the same class? Didn't Hannah leave an anonymous note telling the teacher that? After she told Mr Porter? And he didn't stop her? Come on they couldn't have been that dumb Hannah above all just sounded whiny And I just couldn't sympathize with her character And committing suicide and then blaming people for it is just a stupid excuse for killing herself She was the one that decided to kill herself not them—not anyone She just needed someone to blame And poor Clay If Clay wasn't one of the reasons Hannah killed herself then why put him through the agony? Why give him the tapes? She could've just written him a letter And Tony Hannah put even the ones that had nothing to do with her in pain For example what did Tony do to her? Because I know he was hurting too He felt helpless because he couldn't have saved her It was also very difficult and confusing to keep up with what Clay and Hannah saidthought One second I'm reading in Clay's point of view the next Hannah's And sometimes I had to reread a whole paragraph because I got the POV wrong in my headAlso I think suicide is a very serious issue so I didn't really buy Jay Asher's portrayal of Hannah's feelings If someone wanted to commit suicide their emotion had to be deeper stronger than just hatred and petty resentment for having a bad reputation in High School Therefore I thought Hannah's emotions weren't very serious even childish and overly dramatic at times And after finishing the books I was like seriously? That's why she killed herself? I honestly felt like Asher was making fun of the teens who have been through terrible things in their life and are still trying to stay strong after everything they've been through This was like telling them what the heck end your life if you're so miserableUPDATE Just found out this is going to be a movie Starring Selena GomezAlso if you want to know about Hannah's reasons read message 6
