Stigma Files 2012

Email a Friend Share on Twitter Share on Facebook

StigmaWatch received a complaint that the December 2012 issue of 2Wheels Magazine used 'inappropriate and offensive metaphors' to describe the performance and handling of a motorbike.

StigmaWatch explained to the journalist how the inappropriate use of the terms 'manic', insane' and 'psychotic' had offended the reader.

The journalist apologised for any offence caused, saying he did not intend to stigmatise mental illness.
