A news story I saw today from Vice said that memes about suicide and depression might actually be a good thing for those who suffer from depression and suicidal thoughts. So with that being said, what does that mean for all other kinds of material social media finds too offensive to put on their platform? Does this mean that funny jokes about violence would actually make violent people less violent? What about racist jokes, would that make people less racist? This is something we need to examine and it’s good that we have the comments section to conduct out very unscientific research. Be sure to leave your comments and let us know if you see this post as therapeutic for whatever mental illness you suffer from. We’re trying to make the world a better place here at TTG.
