'13 Reasons Why' Season 2 Is An Impossible Embarrassment For EVERY Rape And Suicide Victim

Suicide and Rape should not EVER be glamorized like it was in this series.

'13 Reasons Why' Season 2 Is An Impossible Embarrassment For EVERY Rape And Suicide Victim

The Netflix series "13 Reasons Why" is a fictional series about bullying, self-harm, rape, and suicide.

All of these things are very real and dangerous things that happen to people every day and the way the series handled these issues is an embarrassment to victims all around.

This series tells the audience that their school doesn't care about their problems and that you can't trust them.

The series shows several different students going to the school guidance counselor telling him they have been raped by a student in the school. The final verdict basically, wrongly, "proved" Bryce, the rapist innocent. This sends the message to rape victims that telling someone about their abuse doesn't matter, because the court will not believe them. After watching this, will teens step forward when they are victimized still?

Or will they keep this a secret, knowing that the series showed no remorse for the victim?

Why was Hannah even in the second season?

This series depicts suicide in the wrong way. It doesn't take it seriously enough.

When a friend commits suicide, they don't just magically come back in some sort of ghost form like Hannah did in the series. You don't get to talk to them again to figure things out. Maybe the second season should have been about how a friend, peer, teacher, or parent could prevent someone from committing suicide BEFORE it even happens, instead of wrongly depicting what suicide and sexual assault is all about.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
