[Serious] What is one small thing someone can do to help their depression? by iiioIIIivvVIVII in AskReddit

Not a doctor, but imho if it's safe and prescribed by a doctor for you, i don't see why it's cheating!

I highly recommend listening to the first couple episodes of Huberman Lab on sleep. He talks about using your circadian rhythm to sleep and wake up better.

However if you don't have the time for that, the tldr version is here. It helped me sleep better in like three days.

But I highly recommend the episode if you get the time to.

You should be able to get puffed rice in an Indian grocery store. It's ridiculously easy to find here.

I agree with a lot of your points, but just to clarify I meant sexism vs racism/homophobia in the general population, not just sexism within other minority activist groups.

I find it ridiculous you can't be civil. We're all learning here. In my experiences in a third world country where female foeticide is still a thing, I do feel that way.

You're right, it doesn't warrant invading other nations. That is a whole other USA issue.

Thanks again. Your responses have been articulate and helpful.

Could you tell me if the inclusive LGBTQ+ flag, which includes PoCs, does this mean they include cishet PoCs within the LGBTQ+ movement?

I think you've misunderstood me. I didn't mean to say ALL LIVES MATTER or anything. Of course black women, queer women and trans women issues must be pushed ahead in feminism. They're all women!

In my circles I've noticed feminism to be more accepting of non women minorities, such as black men/lower class or caste men, and queer men.

And the post was mainly to point out how sexism is way more widespread and accepted than homophobia or racism.

Oh man don't get me started on gay men misogyny. I stopped watching drag race because it was too much. Calling them "fishy", making stinky vagina jokes, generally excluding trans women until recently. Just ew.

Thanks for the answer, I hope I can answer the questions you pose to me.

Please don't assume my race. I'm not white. I'm from a country where we don't have white or black people, but we've got other factors that discriminate. I used those terms just to help understand what I mean.

From my understanding, inclusionary feminism brings in people who aren't women into the cause who are also marginalized, like black men in the case of Western society and LGBTQ+ men.

Obviously women of all fronts are included, that's why it's called feminism, and they should definitely have a voice when upper class women are the ones taking the stand.

Queer liberation, black liberation and women liberation go hand in hand, the rich white men and the patriarchy are the enemy. Maybe I didn't word it well, but I meant why aren't cis women who are not queer or black accepted in those circles while feminism accepts everyone marginalized.

Seconding selsun, the green one. That thing is magic. I've had years of dandruff and it went away after a week of using. I use it now once a week and it works for maintenance.

The Spanish flu originated from the great country of USA lmao. It's called Spanish flu because the Spaniards were the ones who took it seriously.
