    TW: mental health issues, violence against women.

    I know Bleacher Report isn’t very small-time, but I found this article about Jovan Belcher, the football player who killed his girlfriend and then himself, deeply thought-provoking. It’s in line with my recent thoughts on mental illness as the scapegoat for all gun violence, where the outcome seems to be that everyone wants mental health screening (the better to discriminate against you with, my dear) but never actually address that the line between mental health and mental illness is so thin.

    It’d be nice if we could destigmatize mental health care and make it affordable (arguably not an issue for Belcher). I’m curious to see whether reduce the sum total of violence in that kind of a world.
