And this is why Winnie the Pooh was so fucked up
Winnie the pooh was not fucked up for this. It’s not fucked up to provide children with the idea that MENTAL ILLNESS EXISTS. While I’m not convinced they were accurate portrayals of these illnesses, it’s really fucking important to note that the existence of mental illness is NOT fucked up. What’s fucked up is people ostracizing others for these illnesses and calling them fucked up.
I’m not saying people with mental illnesses are fucked up but the illness itself is very fucked up the idea that in illness can make you feel in such a way that you think killing yourself is better than living IS VERY FUCKED UP. And personally at the age you usually would watch things like Winnie the Pooh I don’t the that mental illness should be a big part of it growing up around mental illness can actually make your own mental state worse.
