Upside-Down Ads Reveal The Subtlety Of Depression

Singapore-based suicide prevention organisation Samaritans of Singapore recently ran a series of ads which cleverly uses ambigrams to highlight the difficulty in understanding and identifying depression. The print ads feature images showing a positive message.

However, when the ad is inverted, a sadder, more depressing message is revealed.

The advertisement’s tagline “The signs are there if you read them” is printed upside-down so that readers will know to flip the ads over.

It also reinforces the message that it is easy to miss the warning signs of depression.

Oh gosh. That’s incredibly heartbreaking, and totally relatible.

WTNV Kevin/Cecil Theory (possible spoilers?)

Theory: Desert Bluffs is actually a Future!NightVale. A dystopian future. One where, perhaps, Night Vale lost the fight against Strex. 

Why?

— Kevin says he and Cecil look alike. Cecil doesn’t see it. Why would Kevin think that? If his eyes were burnt out, (especially if he himself won’t acknowledge that) he is seeing himself as he used to be. Cecil doesn’t want to see the resemblance.

— The Timetraveler wearing an outfit from Desert Bluffs. Covered in blood. Said he was here to save Night Vale. 

— Deer sending people back in time. Possibly affecting things?

Welcome to Night Vale (possible) headcannon: Khoshekh is actually a displacer beast.Tentacle hubs, seems kinda spiky and spiny in some places… might even explain the floating. 

I was so heartbroken when I was told I couldn’t tame a displacer beast.

Was she going to slap you because you never in any way made him gay in the actual books, taking zero risks/doing absolutely nothing for gay characters in literature, and only announcing your “authorial intent” afterwards for a cheap shot at looking like an ~ally~

^^^

Gay people are just normal people. We are not told about any of the Hogwarts professors love lives, other than Snape, and it would be completely out of character for Dumbledore to walk around telling everyone about his sexuality.

Did you want her to make him dress in glittery platform boots, a crop top, and decorate his office in rainbow flags to make it more obvious for you? Would that be enough of a stereotype to appease you people? Or what? Please tell me. I’d like to know how you think a gay character is supposed to be portrayed.

And did you miss the Grindelwald chapters in the ‘actual books’? Or was that also not obvious enough for you? Did Dumbledore need to whisper “always” wistfully in order for you to connect that he had romantic feelings for Grindelwald? Maybe you are American and need them to gaze longingly into each others eyes with awkward close ups of their fingers almost grazing each other that Hollywood thinks means ‘true love’. 

It didn’t fit into his relationship to Harry to ever say “I’m gay”, and so it was not stated explicitly (you might have noticed the book was told from Harry Potter’s perspective).

The point is though, that he is a homosexual, well respected, powerful, and very loved wizard- and his sexuality doesn’t matter because no one else thinks it matters. a.k.a. no one care that he loves men, and that is wonderful.

While more visibility would have been nice…

1. The books are told from Harry’s POV, and he’s thick as a post. He didn’t even realise that Snape’s handwriting matched that of the Half Blood Prince. It makes sense that he wouldn’t know about Dumbledore’s sexuality or love for Grindelwald. In fact, in Deathly Hallows, Harry even contemplates how many wasted opportunities he’s had to talk to Dumbledore, and how every conversation he and Dumbledore had revolved around him (Harry); and that the only personal question Harry ever asked Dumbledore (what he sees when he looks in the Mirror of Erised) was probably answered falsely (understandably).

2. As pointed out above, the teachers’ love lives are generally obscure within the narrative. We didn’t find out about Snape and Lily until DH, and JKR also recently revealed that McGonagall was in love with a muggle she couldn’t be with. Harry never knows any of these things within the books unless they’re explicitly revealed to him.

This doesn’t mean that representation couldn’t have occurred. Harry could have remarked that Dean and Seamus went to the Yule Ball together, for instance. So I’m not saying that the books aren’t problematic as far as queer representation is concerned; but I don’t think Dumbledore is the best target of criticism.
