Wait do American people not call their friends mate?? Is this a thing???

Yup. I’m sure some do but mostly people just say friend. Which is boring but whatever.

Wait so you go up to your friends and be like “Hello friend.”

we use names

"sup, douche" may also suffice

What you SHOULD say to people dealing with any of these
Anxiety: This too shall pass, even if that sounds corny and cliche. Your anxiety will subside, you are not dying, you will not die from this, everything is going to be fine. Keep taking deep breaths, try and stay focused.
Depression: You are valid and your emotions are valid. You are a good, strong person, even if you don't feel like you are right now. Things DO get better, and I know you can get through this.
Sexual Orientation: Your body, your life, your bedroom. You choose what you do with it, and I get no say in the matter, because I am not you. I'll respect you no matter what.
Bipolar: The sun also rises. For all your bad days, weeks, or longer-- you also have good ones just beyond the horizon. You know better than anyone what it means to finally hit those "highs" in your life, and I hope that you just keep growing and strengthening yourself through your treatment to extend those happy moments.
Self harm: This is your body and I'll never pass judgement over you for the things you choose to do with it. However, you should really consider speaking with a counselor about this. Not because you're "bad", but because I just want you to be safe.
Eating disorders: It's okay to eat, you have permission. Eating will not make you fat, ugly, or worthless. Eating will make you strong, healthy, and lively. You deserve to eat, you deserve happiness.
Abuse: What they did was wrong, and you had no consenting part in it. You have no need to feel guilty or shamed, although I understand that may be exactly how you are feeling right now. They're the ones at fault here, and the ball is entirely in your court if you choose to report them for that, which you are rightfully entitled to do.
Suicide: Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. You are valuable and your existence is valuable. There are billions of people on this planet, and even if you think everyone hates you and no one cares, they do and they will. You can find so many friends and loved ones if you just allow yourself the time to look for them. The world turns out to be a beautiful place and you deserve to be alive to see that.
Sexual assault: What they did was vile and disgusting. Yes, you're now left with this horrible, traumatic event to move on from, but your life is not entirely lost. Recovery is possible, and an unfortunately large number of people have to go through that-- but they make it to the other side. So can you, you can do this. You're not dirty, you're not a "slut" or a "whore", you are a human being whose rights were violated. But you are strong, and I know you can move past this in due time.
Multiple Personality Disorder: I'll always love you no matter who you are. I only hope the absolute best for you during your recovery and treatment, and maybe one day I'll be so privileged as to love you as one whole.
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder: The pain of suddenly reliving horrific events is almost unimaginable for me. Please try and remember that although it feels like it's real and it's happening right now, that it's not. You are okay, you are fine, and you are safe. You are in the present here and now, and that past can't manifest itself again to come and physically hurt you. Everything is just fine, these feelings will pass and you're going to be okay.
Schizophrenia: I am real and I can promise you that. I care. Try and find something grounding for you, an object that you can cling to to help you distinguish between whether or not you're hallucinating. You are not a freak, you are not a monster. You're a human being with rights and emotions who happens to be ill right now.
I saw the what "not" to say post and had to make my own variant of that. I lava you <3

HEEEERE IT IS.
THE HOW TO FUCK UP YOUR LIFE THEY SOLD IN EVERY MIDDLE SCHOOL

HEY. HEEEY. Let’s all sit down while I explain to you guys in simple terms, why you’re a twat for being a twat about Katy Coope.
So, let’s imagine you’re about fifteen years old. Manga is pretty new in the UK and you are one of the first people on this very new UK manga scene and you’re super pumped about drawing manga! Of course you are! There aren’t many good manga artists because it’s so new that when established adult artists try to draw it it’s insincere and contrived looking, but the actually manga influenced artists are all still teenagers and a bit rough about the edges.
A guy from a publishing house comes across you and your work and says “Wow, you’re great at this manga drawing thing! It’s getting really popular and people want how to draw books on it, so we’ve been looking for somebody good at manga to make something like that, would you like to?”
Would you say “No”? Would you honestly, at fifteen years old, turn down the change to be a paid, published manga artist? Would you have the self-awareness to say “Actually I don’t think I’m ready and this could bite me in the arse down the line” when a publisher is telling you you’re exactly what he’s after and offering to publish you and you’d get money!? Any artist with an ounce of sense wouldn’t turn that opportunity down!
So Katy Coope got published, and because it was, at the time, one of the only books on the subject for a non-Japanese audience, and the publisher worked hard to get it distributed in schools, it was a huge hit! It inspired young artists to try manga and many remember it fondly. It was so successful, the sequel book above was made two years later (so we’re keeping track here. She drew that at seventeen. When I was seventeen, my work looked like this: Oh god how did I ever become a professional illustrator!?
So, the first book was in 2002, the second 2004. That’s over a decade ago and she was still getting hate for these books in her mid-late twenties, so much that she eventually closed her deviantart accound because of the constant crap she had to put up with ten plus years later! She got a lot of messages from people she’d inspired too, but oh my god. Being a friend, I saw some of what she got and it was just… I don’t know how she coped and stayed such a warm, friendly person, it was horrible.
See, here’s the part people don’t talk about. She got better:

OH SHIT WHAT’S THIS!!?!!!?!?! It’s a really solid book on manga that is my number one recommended manga drawing book when I run workshops at schools and the like! The art is solid, it gives excellent general tips on things like anatomy, head rotations, drawing hair and poses and it encourages kids to try things unlike most books that just teach you how to just slavishly recreate their examples! Also, she made this book, if you’re doing the maths here, when she was like what? 21!? That is bonkers. When I was 21, my work was nowhere near publishable quality!
That book was made Only four years after that one in the picture at the top there. This lady worked her bum off improving.
Also, she is super nice. Like, really super awesome nice. She will always have time to chat and say hello at conventions. She will never ignore or look down on you if you’re not well known or not published. She’s friendly, polite and she runs great workshops for kids. She’s a skilled web designer too!
Some of you may even have been enjoying her work without even realising it’s the same person! Like:

The improvement is so great, you probably wouldn’t even know it was the same artist, but it is. She is awesome and she shouldn’t be being mocked; she ought to be a goddamn ROLE MODEL.
Please reblog and put an end to this bullshit. Katy Coope is a rad lady and we should be celebrating her current work instead of endlessly going on about stuff she did when she was still literally a child.
