I have mixed feelings about awareness months. On one hand, I feel that it’s always good to spread awareness for those with disabilities and disorders. On the other hand, I feel that it’s always good to spread awareness for those with disabilities and disorders. Limiting it to one month means that there’s a time when some get singled out while others get excluded, and months which are back-to-back may end up competing with one another for attention. Also, setting aside specific months means that a lot of people just pretend to care and do a lot of superficial stuff for that one month but then don’t care the rest of the year, and didn’t really even care for that one month as it turns out but only wanted their “friends” to think so. So it’s all very complicated and confusing — but not as confusing as OCD, so it’s OK.
