I've tried to post stuff on Facebook but a) nobody cares and b) it's too scary to be honest under my real name. So here's my controversial thoughts on three recent news stories...
1) Jake Paul tweeted this:
There's an article on MSN, and many random people, ripping into him for it.
Fun fact: This is what every self-help article on mental health issues says. And a lot of those are written by mental health professionals.
This is also what therapists tell you to do.
2) Caroline Flack. Poor, tragic, beautiful Caroline Flack.
Women are flooding Facebook with selfies for her, calling themselves beautiful for her, railing against the media for her.
Conveniently ignoring the fact that she was due to stand trial for domestic abuse charges. Imagine a male celebrity killing themselves in that situation, what would the outpouring of emotion be then?
3) Meghan Markle. Apparently anything you say against her is racist. Apparently everyone hates her and loves Kate Middleton. Apparently this is completely arbitrary.
Nothing at all to do with the fact that she's an American, married into the (arguably) most important family in the UK and then refused to follow all their rules. Repeatedly flouted royal protocol (while Kate upholds it). And y'know, we don't have the best history with our princes marrying Americans.
So there you have it, we're not racist. We're xenophobic.
(Also, what happened to Harry and Meghan wanting to be 'eco-friendly'? Living between London and Vancouver, jetting around to Miami and stuff?)
