Can you describe to me the relation between depression and ableism?

stufftheysaytodepressedpeople:

Ableism is defined as discrimination, social prejudice, or unfair treatment of people with disabilities perpetrated by those without disabilities. So specifically with depression, examples would be a non-depressed person yelling at a depressed person for being “lazy,” or being unable to “just snap out of it.” Ableism can also be a set of unattainable expectations placed on the person with disabilities by the person without disabilities. In this case, with depression, and example might be the person without depression telling the person with depression, “I still expect you to do all your chores, go to school, participate in x y and z, and go to work,” after the depressed person has already explained that doing all of those things is just not possible for that person at the moment.
Common ableist phrases in terms of depression:
-I could have done this certain thing just fine
-I don’t understand why you can’t do this certain thing
-you’re just being lazy
-you’re just not trying hard enough
-the person without depression blaming the depressed person’s behavior on if they have or haven’t taken their medication
-you have nothing to be sad about/you have a perfect life/starving kids in Africa

I have a plan.

America was built on two monumental crimes: the genocide of the Native American and the enslavement of the African American. The tendency of official America is to memorialize other peoples’ crimes and to forget its own - to seek a high moral ground as a pretext to ignore real issues.

Sounds about right.

I’d still prefer a nice butt be included.
