    Some Brit I was listening to call into a soccer show earlier was bragging about becoming an American citizen next week.

    As Ty Webb referenced our legal system is based on the Brits so now is certainly no time for self reflection of how we treat people.

    Society has changed so much in that time, it’s the people that refuse to adapt I hate

    Nobody gave a shit about mental health 15-20 years ago

    Honestly as recently as maybe 5 years at the most. It’s still somewhat stigmatized.

    Bulworth Obscenity?

    I genuinely feel sorry for this girl. She's been taken advantage her entire adult life and apparently not a single adult she's ever encountered has stopped to ask her what she thinks would be best for her.

    I'm honestly surprised we haven't woken up to the headline that she's hung herself. She must be made of stone to fight this kind of mental state.

    I've mentioned this before - my ex-wife is her 2nd cousin so she actually knows the family. The matriarch of Britney's family committed suicide when Britney's dad was young, there were endless terrible stories about how she grew up.

    I hope she comes back from everything she's going through - but to say she had some depressing influences around her when she was growing up is an understatement.

    Nobody gives a shit about mental health now. The only thing that’s changed is maybe the recognition of the issue, but not in terms of getting anything done to help address it.

    Agreed - it's posturing and has become a faux pas to make fun of people for it now but that's the only significant change I've seen. Hopefully I'm wrong.

    I think people treat it a little more seriously at least but it's definitely not a massive change.

    Did i hear that right? They forced her to take lithium... by lying about how she was acting out? Because she didn't want to do a show? She's not allowed to be taken off birth control? I'm not going to weigh in on how "well" she is but uhhh, that's gotta be some of the shittiest shit I've heard. Jesus fuck.

    the forced IUD is easily the worst thing for me. I think there are rare circumstances where it's appropriate for an adult to have a guardian intercede on their behalf when it comes to matters of the body but this is absolutely not one of them and she's frankly not even in the same solar system for such a circumstance.
