Wait but hear me out
- ravenclaws that hate studying and procrastinate every assignment
- hufflepuffs that curse like sailors and that look like they could definitely fuck you up if they wanted to
- slytherin that are really nice and sweet who constantly ask how your days going and if you need help with something
- gryffindor that are scared to kill the spider in the corner of their rooms because who knows if that shit can fly or if it’ll attack you
“Guyz EA has already lied about her whole family dying! If she tells lies as sick as that then why shold we believe that she’s bipolar? She could be lying about that too!!!1”
- Right. Okay, that’s a fair point but it’s still hardly a decent reason to believe that she’s lying. Yes, EA has told many lies in the past, some of them small and insignificant and some of them big and completely horrible, but the thing is: we have proof of these lies. We can easily proove that she lied about her family dying in a fire, that she lied about being related to Alice Liddell, and that she lied about her birth name.
But there is nothing to say that she’s lying about her bipolar disorder. Nothing at all. There’s nothing she’s said or done that has given any of us any reason to think this, and people seem to be using the “she’s lied before” logic which is piss-poor logic. I mean she’s built a large part of her career on her illness (the Opheliac era, her book, etc) so if she was lying then she’d have to be a fucking amazing actress.
Accusing anyone of faking an illness without any proof whatsoever is a shitty, damaging, problematic (ugh I hate using that word) and downright fucked up thing to do. People with mental health issues have enough of a stigma attached to them, and have to deal with enough shit without asshats on the internet assuming the worst of them.
Please. Before accusing EA or anyone else of lying about their illness have some consideration for them, and most importantly…GET PROOF.
