    Social media and the rise of anxiety/depression among age groups

    Analyze the relationship between the birth of various social media platforms and the rise in cases of anxiety/depression. Is there a correlation? Or, as mental health continues to be de-stigmatized, has there just been more acknowledgment of the issue? Senior citizens are said to benefit from social media due to a sense of connection. How does this compare to other age groups?

    • I think it is really interesting to consider how the role of social media differs between age groups. Generally looking at the relationship between social media and mental health without considering age would result in a loss of nuance. There is definitely ample research on the topic of mental health and social media, and I would encourage you to read these articles so you can take a new perspective in your article. – natpalumbo 1 week ago

    So cool. I’ve always been fascinated by Indian art because of the eclectic color palette and intricacies of the work. You’ve selected beautiful pieces to accompany a very informative article.

    Indian Folk-art: An Expression of Cultural Diversity

    I think you make some strong points. I also get annoyed when, to supposedly advance the feminist message in a film or TV show, the majority of male characters are overtly sexist or foolish in every comment they make, which oftentimes seems forced and does not reflect reality. Alternatively, revealing the nuances and undercutting that exist behind a lot of modern sexist behavior would be interesting to explore or comment on.

    The Paradox of the Strong Female Character

    I thought the film was very tastefully done for the subject matter in terms of both its absurdity and the childlike perspective it portrays. It comments on the impact of learned sentiments, alluding to the importance of teaching children love and open-mindedness from a young age. Some scenes and dialogue in the film made me feel uncomfortable because of the overt hatred construed, but I think that that was part of the director’s intent. I think that trying to tackle issues such as micro-aggressions and internalized racism in this film would have been biting off more than it could chew and that these issues could better be addressed in a film set closer to present-day.
