Screw entertainment about depression

  September 16th, 2018 by endlessmonster

There’s a lot of talk about Bojack Horseman right now. I haven’t seen it, but seeing all these people say they “get” depression because they watched a cartoon horse for a few hours seems super regressive. Like, these things that glorify depression only stand to trivialize the feelings of us who actually deal with it to the point where we’re posting on this board. People think they understand but when they’re faced with us for whom this is a bleak, inescapable reality, they still don’t give a fuck as always.

anyway, am I off-base here? what do others here think? This doesn’t only apply to that show, I feel like most media about depression only sets us back.
