“i’m so depressed,” posted the caucasian heterosexual cisgender teenage girl on her blog
“I’m so depressed” posted the person who is clinically depressed and who cannot help their depression despite their privilege because depression does not exclusively affect certain groups.
People of any race, sexual orientation, gender or age can have mental illness. This is just proof of how offensive “white girl” jokes can be.
I think the original post was trying to get at the fact that a lot of privileged people use the term ‘depressed’ when they are not actually depressed. Depression can affect anybody, and it should not be desensitized with common vocabulary.
