    Pew: Over Half of Liberal White Women Mentally Ill

    https://magazine.whatfinger.com/view/?linkid=176734

    It took a while, but the results of a Pew Research Center study released a year ago have come to light, revealing that over half of liberal white women have been diagnosed with a mental health condition.

    Evie Magazine learned about it on Twitter and breaks the belated news:

    The study, which examined white liberals, moderates, and conservatives, both male and female, found that conservatives were far less likely to be diagnosed with mental health issues than those who identified as either liberal or even “very liberal.” What’s more, white women suffered the worst of all. White women, ages 18-29, who identified as liberal were given a mental health diagnosis from medical professionals at a rate of 56.3%, as compared to 28.4% in moderates and 27.3% in conservatives.

    Evie calls for compassion:

    It’s truly unfortunate that so many women are facing these kinds of issues, and that this prevalence of mental illness among progressive women might be being weaponized for political purposes.

    Still more unfortunate is that the country is ruled by the tyrannical fools they vote for.

    Maybe moonbattery causes the mental illness, rather than vice versa:

    There’s also the unrelenting focus on oppression, verbal violence, and micro-aggressions. We know that building resiliency against hardship is the best weapon against depression and anxiety, yet progressive ideology forces its followers to wallow in feelings of helplessness and victimhood.

    The reasons to reject wokism are without number.

    1/n Two interesting findings thus far from my analysis of Pew's March 2020 COVID-19 survey. First, white (and especially 'very') liberals are far more likely than all other ideological-racial subgroups to report being diagnosed with a mental health condition. pic.twitter.com/RynS9lk0jR

    Whether liberalism should be medically defined as a mental illness may be debatable, but there is no question that liberalism and mental illness are at the very least correlated among Caucasians.

    The other half are Undiagnosed.
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    Perhaps the study needs more study.

    In my experience, many a “conservative white women” are equally as Mentally Ill, kicking and screaming for the likes of Romney 2012, chanting Trump was “sent by God”, and chastise me in front of everybody at committee meetings when I call for an end to TSA, state that Operation Warp speed is a Gates agenda, and more Debt and Police State Apparatus are implemented during Republican administrations. They view me as a liberal plant, and refuse to even glance at the On the Records that I take the time to compile, print and pass out - they end up balled up and thrown into the garbage can.

    That’s my 12 year study. And it is sound.
    “The right to life is the source of all rights—and the right to property is their only implementation. Without property rights, no other rights are possible. Since man has to sustain his life by his own effort, the man who has no right to the product of his effort has no means to sustain his life. The man who produces while others dispose of his product, is a slave.”

    This isn't a new study, this was discussed at some length somewhere else before. (And, by clicking on the link, there was the original story written November 2020).

    Also, the headline is wrong. It's not over half of liberal white women who are crazy, it's YOUNG white women who are crazy. The article points this out.

    I'm not saying the study is old, dated or irrelevant because of age, just that this was talked about last year or the year before.

    There's a chart in the original study and the last time there was an article, what was also showed was that blacks didn't have this problem with crazy, just whites.

    Also one of the findings was that very conservative was more crazy than conservative. I believe it was very liberal, liberal, moderate, very conservative, conservative, from most crazy to less crazy.

    But, yes, young white, very liberal women are the most crazy of all, and that they're up over 50% crazy.

    I suspect that young white very liberal women are more likely to be seeking some sort of diagnosis of crazy, while all the others are trying to avoid that diagnosis. They're the ones who are rushing to a shrink for pills to take, others aren't . And, it's not that they're the only ones who are seeking a diagnosis and seeking pills, but they're doing that the most.

    It seems like our younger Karens should be given prescriptions for the marijuana since it seems that it would help them a bunch to chill out.

    I don't know if the stats in the OP are accurate but I hear about it often.

    My SO is pretty socially progressive (and fiscally conservative) and even she complains constantly about her 29 year old super-woke blond white female employee. According to the stories I hear, the super-woke is basically just a passive-aggressive narcissist who uses her super-woke status to bully others and avoid any criticisms of her own work and productivity.

    The other day, super-woke was receiving criticism from my SO about her lack of productivity. Super-woke immediately avoided the topic by accusing the C-level of the org, which my SO is a member of, of not being diverse enough and what does my SO plan to do about it? It was her immediate response to the direct criticism. These super-wokester females use it a defense mechanism to immediately switch their "opponent" to the defensive position, instead of themselves, so the wokester never has to address their own shortcomings and just skates along. I don't think they really even care about equality or the other buzzwords. It's just a defense mechanism for the extreme narcissism that social media has successfully cultivated in that demographic group.

    Right now, it's hard to see how more (younger) people aren't mentally ill. Combine woke Marxist victimhood brainwashing and gender confusion, internet influences causing insecurity and FOMO, coddled and spoiled, and now germophobia and Covid hysteria. It takes a strong independent woman to withstand all of that.

    Antianxiety, antidepressants, etc. probably add to that, especially if prescribed when young. They don't learn to mentally deal with real hardships. I know a few people in their 20s and 30s who are absolutely worthless. They can't make decisions, apply for a job, etc.and they have been on this crap since childhood.

    When I was a teen, even the potheads could hold down a job. These pharma mood pills are really screwing up this generation.

    I learned from my Dad that the cure for about every thing was hard work . Then I learned on my own a bottle of aspirin and bourbon would take care of most of my medical problems . I learned from Mrs O what my flaws are . These things also summarize a lot of what is wrong with young people. If your already soft ,lazy and stupid , unable to think for yourself you sure as hell dont need any pharma meds. You need to get your ass to work .

    Leftists are unhappier in general. It turns out focusing on all the perceived ills in the world and counting other people's money is a recipe for misery.

    It takes an extreme intellectual openess or just a random accident to being exposed to good ideas for anyone under 30 to believe in freedom and inherent goodness of free enterprise.

    Meh. Psychiatry is problematic enough as it is, without injecting politics into it - and vice versa.

    Whether or to what extent psychiatry is actually just a bunch of hoodoo gussied up as "science" is an issue about which volumes could be written.

    Science requires rigorous definitions and objectively reproducible measurements. These are things in which the field of psychiatry is severely deficient.

    But for the sake of what follows, let us assume that psychiatry is not just another instance of overweening scientism.

    Did the study account for how likely members of the various groups (liberal, conservative, male, female, young, old, etc.) were to seek psychiatric diagnoses in the first place?

    For example, is it the case that young liberal white women are, for whatever reasons, more likely to seek psychiatric diagnoses? If so, then it can hardly be surprising, let alone considered meaningful, if they end up getting more positive diagnoses. Also, it is difficult to see how this could be corrected for, since any such correction would have to correctly estimate and account for the number of undiagnosed respondents - along each of at least four axes, no less (liberal vs. conservative, male vs. female, young vs. old, race vs. other race) - who would have received a positive result had they sought a diagnosis (i.e., such a correction would, in effect, have to attempt to diagnose the undiagnosed with some reasonable degree of accuracy).

    Did the study account for how likely members of the various groups were to accurately self-report any diagnoses they had received?

    For example, apart from the question of whether old conservative men are more or less likely than young liberal women to seek a psychiatric diagnoses in the first place, how likely are members of each group to accurately report positive results? How likely are old conservative men to misrepresent having received a positive diagnosis (or any diagnosis at all)? How likely are young liberal women to misrepresent not having received a positive diagnosis (or any diagnosis at all)? Recall that at the height of the AIDS epidemic, there were gay men attending support groups for those who did not have the disease because they were feeling "left out" of being part of something "special." Might something broadly similar be involved here? If so, to what degree? The upshot of all this is that studies that hinge on self-reporting are always and automatically at least somewhat suspect, at absolute best.

    And these are just two questions of many that lead to skepticism concerning the validity of such "studies."

    One doesn't need to resort to psychiatric scientism in order to know that many on the left have gone cray-cray ...
