I didn't want to write this post, but after the past few day's I have come to a point where I decided this needed to be done. First off, I love bitcoin & the community of people I have met through it. Growing up in a heavily left-leaning society (Quebec, Canada), I felt like an outcast being somewhat "red pilled" / right leaning person. The Bitcoin community made me realize I am not alone.
But recently, I have been seeing many Bitcoiners on twitter just completely shit on anyone who has mental health issues. Calling them: "weak men", "they probably don't work out", "they eat like shit", "watch too much porn" & "haven't found jesus" etc. I get that these are opinions, and everyone should be allowed to have their own take.
As someone who lost his sister to a 10-year mental health battle which ended in suicide a few months ago, I just couldn't let this slide. Mental health is not black and white. I saw my sister degrade in front of me over a 10 year period. It is a beast of nature that is hard to explain.
So I guess my point is we need a little more compassion for victims of mental health, and the family and friends it can affect. I know we are "based bitcoiners bro", but have a little compassion.
