13 Reasons Why: Beyond the Reasons

***TRIGGERS AND SPOILERS BELOW***

I’m watching 13 Reasons Why: Beyond the Reasons. I challenge anyone who is watching 13 Reasons Why, Season 2 to watch the actors, actresses, directors, and psychologists talk about some of the themes from this past season. Themes such as: the complicity of silence, the importance of intervention and recovery.

Whether you like the show or not, I don’t think anyone can dispute that they did open up a discussion about some important societal taboos such as rape, female and male sexual assault, suicide, suicide attempts, mass shootings, mental health, heroine addiction, homelessness (especially youth homelessness), and even rape culture with their metaphor of “The Clubhouse.” Damn, they tacklers a lot.

I love that shows like 13 Reasons Why, The Sinner, and even Empire. Although problematic and controversial are using their platforms to start the conversation, to break the silence.

It’s very interesting to see what these actors and actresses have to say about their performances and portrayals of such important stories lines and characters.
