Never say that you “don’t care” about a person’s orientation, gender, disabilities, illnesses, ethnicity, religion, or any other aspect of their identities

Because all of those things are inherently a part of that person and their identity and by “not caring” about those things you are saying that you don’t care about them as a person, and also erasing important aspects of them

"Not caring" is not the same as being accepting, and it is certainly not respectful

Can a thin person have body image struggles? Can a thin person be at war with their self-image? Can a thin person hate to look in the mirror?

Absolutely.

And does that suck?

Absolutely.

But the difference between these negative feelings and fatphobia is this: The only person worrying about whether or not I’m meeting beauty standards is me.

And that’s not the same for fat folk.

When you’re not thin, other people on the beach actually do take offense. When you’re not thin, people really do think that you shouldn’t be in a bathing suit. When you’re not thin, people really do make your body their moral obligation.

And while your internal struggle is real and significant, the point is: You might hate your body, but society doesn’t.

That’s thin privilege.

NEVERMIND: BIOFEEDBACK GAME

Nevermind is an adventure game where you are a physician who can use cutting-edge technology to venture into the the minds of psychological trauma patients. 

Your goal is to explore that world, and solve abstract puzzles that will reveal more and more about their hidden memories. The patient’s subconscious will try and lash back at you, however as you try and peel back the layers. 

These game uses biofeedback technology which means, it can detect when your scared or anxious by responding to your stress levels. This game will dynamically adapt, when it can tell your heart is racing. The more scared you get, the harder the game becomes.

Another great thing about this game is it’s therapeutic applications. It can help those with mild,severe stress, anxiety or PTSD. It can help them overcome their fears. Testing results have been positive so far, but further investigation is needed. 

OFFICIAL WEBSITE

For anyone wondering, it can help those with severe stress, anxiety & PTSD, because people learn to consciously control stress as more stress is put onto them. 

The creators of the game will be talking to researchers and behavioral health experts who are eager to explore this game’s clinical impacts. They may create a health-centric version of the game targeted for those specific patients.
