and what's that supposed to mean? (re: mental illnesses)


mental illnesses are not free from the surrounding social atmosphere, ideological apparatuses, economical system and the gender dynamics of a society, nor they are free from the ‘ill’ person’s experiences. to act like they are is oppressive to the so-called mentally ill. in short,  to say depression is like a flu is ridiculous. also, psychology is a normative science that relies on the power dynamics and the ethics of the time periods it takes place in - it is not something that is solely based on biology, to accept the proposed thesis of the quote you’d have to act like it is.
