I’m kind of surprised at the negative feedback that this show has been getting.
13 Reasons Why was never about how “love can save you” Clay is one person out of 13 on the tapes and really it’s not even about him. Being groped and having your ass grabbed in public by men is sexual harassment. It’s not something to take lightly and it’s never acceptable. No, Hannah is not a drama queen or overreacting. Your words and actions can be incredibly harmful. Just because you don’t react to something a certain way doesn’t mean that other people won’t. Especially if you have no idea what else is going on in peoples’ lives.
I mean, really are y’all even watching?
People are trying to point out the smallest reasons to hate this show for no reason. No, this is not the only way to display mental health, bullying, depression, suicide, sexual assault, rape, or anything else but no one ever said that it was. This is one show (actually it’s been a book for 10 years but apparently none of y’all read it so don’t even know what was added to the show) it isnt going to be “perfect” or fit everyone’s experiences perfectly. That’s impossible to do in just 13 episodes. But whether you like it or not this show has still opened up a dialogue about all of the things I listed that people are often too afraid to talk about. Of course it shouldn’t have taken a TV show to do so but wouldn’t it be more productive to build on the conversation and stomping it (and other people’s experiences) down?
