• Hey Visitor,

    In light of recent events, all community members in the US should reach out to their representative in regards to the Stop Online Suicide Assistance Forums Act that has been introduced in congress. This bill, if passed, could criminalize this community and hold it liable for simply hosting information.

    You should be able to locate and contact your represenative by going to this website. You can also contact Lori Trahan, the one spearheading this bill by calling her office at (202) 225-3411 or by leaving a message on the contact form on her site.

    One of the best ways to combat this is to make your voice heard. We're not political activists, but we made this notice to let you know that you do have a voice and that you do have representives that represent you in congress.

Personally, I have never understood people who are so attached to the idea of family. The financial support is one big reason but other than that, I see no point in not "inconveniencing" them. Granted, I parents who are emotionally distance in a sort of bipolar way where there seem to care only in the 'tough love' way but even if they weren't, I don't think that justifies staying here. That is not the case however for so many people on /r/depression and even on /r/timetogo

There must be an evolutionary reason for this which makes me think I must be some sort of sociopath (was diagnosed anyway with schizoid personality, no idea what it is really). Am I in the minority of people here as well or are there more like me?

Same here.

I wonder why that's a sufficient enough reason to want to stay for many people. If we compare life with US Slavery in the South during the 18th century, most people would applaud a slave (us) breaking away from the physical and mental shackles in a field where not only does everyone no they are a slave but pretends things are normal but actually have stockholm syndrome (apparently some slaves would beat others slaves up because they'd get better treatment).

Anyone watching a film like that today would say that if he just upped and disappeared, he would be a hero. Yet take that same situation and apply it to today and you have fucking useless 90% of society condemning suicide despite knowing very well how cruel nature and how flawed human society is.
