best thing i learned working with and learning about kids: when they do shit like this, especially to something they themselves use and enjoy, leave it there for as long as possible. let them return to the fun thing over and over again so that it sinks in that the thing they did was wrong, they ruined something, and now they can’t have fun because of it and they should never do it again. it teaches them consequence of action and cautiousness.
i did this with a 3-year-old kid i babysat who filled his playstation with peanut butter before i got there, just every time he went back to it and asked why it’s not working, i opened it and pointed to the peanut butter stains and said “you did that” and he says “yeah”, “will it work like that?” “…no”, and when he got it and promised to never put anything but games into a game machine again, his parents bought another and he kept his promise. it works, even at that age.
this was a long and unnecessary rant but so many times i’ve seen parents IMMEDIATELY replace their kids’ toys/electronics that they destroy over and over again and i’m just like NO THEY’RE NOT LEARNING ANYTHING THAT WAY
they also don’t learn from being thrown into fires
yeah but they’re quieter that way
know what scopophobia is?
- a pathological fear of being seen/watched/drawing attention to yourself in any way, and the judgement/ridicule you feel is attached to it
know what scopophobia ISN’T?
- a fear of eyes.
know what you should be tagging with #scopophobia?
- probably nothing. no static 2-dimensional image on the internet could even come close to evoking the kind of anxiety that comes with being around real live people looking at you and watching you and paying attention to you in a real live public setting. unless its a text post or video that discusses at length someone’s actual experiences dealing with scopophobia that could be uncomfortable or triggering to others who share the condition, i SERIOUSLY DOUBT you’ll find a situation where tagging it is appropriate.
know what you SHOULDN’T be tagging with #scopophobia?
- basically everything that you’re tagging with scopophobia
if you feel deeply unsettled seeing images of eyeballs, or a photo of a person looking at the camera, or anything of that sort, you probably have something entirely different instead of/in addition to scopophobia, such as ommetaphobia (fear of eyes).
this probably sounds a lot angrier than i intended but i am getting really goddamn tired of people mistakenly tagging selfies with scopophobia without even bothering to find out what it actually is? it just feels kind of trivializing to those of us who cant actually function like humans in public without having panic attacks because we feel like the whole world is scrutinizing our every word and action
having to use your own art as reference cause you forgot how to draw
i just realized that fucking ross geller got tenure in the field of paleontology at, like, age 30? and must’ve been hired at that tenure track position in his mid-20s? how was he so young? how old was he when he got his PhD? did he just… get a job after graduating without even doing a postdoc? is this what the 90s were like? fuck the 90s. fuck ross geller. fuck the way rachel got that coffee shop job with no experience
