hi 13 reasons why is boring, disgusting, graphic, triggering, and anything BUT suicide awareness! suicide does not equal revenge and it is sick that other mental illnesses/suicide are glorified and romanticized in a tv show plot for the sake of hollywood making money. selena, her mother, and everyone else that helped in the making of the show preaches that it’s “awareness” but it addresses no real warning signs of what mental health issues really are. they draw out these long and boring 13 episodes solely for suspense and shock value to make sure you keep watching, not in order to make sure another teen doesn’t kill themselves. also, why aren’t there ever any positive solutions in the show? you would think if they were trying to show TRUE awareness to such a horrible and huge issue such as suicide they would give positive ways to handle depression rather than self harm or suicide, and they don’t. don’t even get me started on the sexual assault that is portrayed in the show, and graphically might i add. do you really think that someone who has been sexually assaulted/raped, attempted suicide, or self harmed really appreciates seeing it glorified in a show? then not only do these horrible things happen, it makes it seem like there’s never anyone to go to. no parents, no friends, no teachers, counselors, family, no one, which is so false. it’s honestly such a horrible show and i hate that mental illness and suicide are being so falsely represented, but no one blinks an eye about it as long as hollywood gets their money. you’re not alone, suicide is not the answer, and it always gets better. remember that. anyways, that’s my review and tangent for the night. bye!
