I figure most of the people who come to this blog find out about it though my dad, Jordan Peterson. I’m happy about that, I don’t care how people get here, I just want them to know what kind of problems their diet is potentially causing. I generally avoid most of my dads “controversy” because I honestly think there are more important things for me to focus on. Mainly health. I also believe that mental illness accounts for a lot of the political problems we’re having now. People get anxious and depressed and look for outward sources of their inner pain. I believe the source is diet, Dad also believes it’s diet, but focuses on other sources (personality, lying, etc.)
Today in a Facebook group I’m in (that I normally really like), something came up that bothered me enough I couldn’t ignore it.
When I was incredibly depressed, just beginning university, I used to be in Facebook arguments all the time. When the depression went away, I stopped caring. This Facebook post this morning was too much though, I’ve ignored a lot of annoying things in the group because it’s been helpful as a soon to be mom.
Just so you can understand the following: according to a Google search:
- a statement at the start of a piece of writing, video, etc., alerting the reader or viewer to the fact that it contains potentially distressing material (often used to introduce a description of such content).“there probably should be a trigger warning for people dealing with grief”
Here are the posts:
I am no longer part of that group. I left. Obviously it was time for the annual Facebook cleansing. But I just wanted to write a quick post urging people to say something when something like this comes up. Politely disagree, or call out the stupidity so that other people know that not everyone thinks this way. I’ve been avoiding it because I don’t particularly like conflict (although I’m not as averse to it as probably the average person). But this is ridiculous.
