Re: Mother fights to reduce stigma of mental illness (Gateway, March 6).
By how much?
Since you asserted this “stigma,” who taught you? ( I am asking very seriously.)
The mother repeated it, as women were trained to repeat the stigma of rape for generations. Do you repeat that one?
What is your policy on repeating claims of “stigma?” Some, not all? Select ones, not all?
In every instance, the term “stigma” was promoted against this or that, history has shown us the fault lies in the person promoting it, not in the person against whom it was promoted.
Please do not promote this one, not to print and not to minds.
Her son did not die because of some “stigma.” He died because of the incompetence of those trusted with his care, an incompetence we would not accept had he had cancer.
Why do we accept it? We have been trained to.
