Or at least make an attempt at tumblin.
As someone who has struggled with actual depression, I find Depression quest to be manipulative, exploitative, and quite frankly, patently fucking offensive. The only purpose it serves is to throw people suffering from depression under the bus and tell them that their lives are hopeless.
You’d think this game was designed specifically to trigger those with depression. I’m not using the word “trigger” in the Tumblr sense here: I’m being one hundred percent serious. If you suffer from depression, I implore you, for the sake of your own safety, do not play this game.
Allie Brosh has done more to help depression sufferers in the span of two blog posts than a million Zoe Quinns could if they wrote for their entire lifetimes.
And this has nothing to do with Zoe Quinn’s personal life, other than the fact that she’s a third-rate hack writer who thinks she can speak for me and my experiences. Guess what: she can’t.
People have been arguing over whether it counts as a game, well guess what, I don’t give a shit. Because whatever it is, it’s (at best) poorly written and (at worst) actively harmful.
Reblogging my own post just to add: there are allegations going around that the proceeds that supposedly were to go to anti-depression/anti-suicide charities may or may not have actually gone to those charities.
If this is true, then, again, as someone who has suffered from actual depression: I have no words. Absolutely no words.
I feel exploited.
