So before we even get into the chapter, we are going to pause on the chapter TITLE (don't look at me like that - I told you the threads might be longer) because I've been thinking about this.
Anyway. You were shoved out of this perfect place and a doctor whacked you and such.
He would like you to know that adolescence is like that. Your childhood has been amazing and warm and secure.
Okay 1) there's a lot of commas in that sentence.
2) Is not getting to Adultsville your BIGGEST concern there?
So next you ask the flagman what on earth you are going to do. Don't worry!
So like... not to stick on this point but why aren't there signs up for this detour? That seems important. Like a possibly deadly bridge collapse, I feel like someone would have brought flares and signs.
What does it mean for a car to have all my characteristics? And why a sports car?
Okay, we can safely say we are in a horror movie. I don't have another good read on the situation. There is no time when Dobson could LEAN INTO MY CAR and it isn't horror.
Regardless, when he was being interviewed for this very nbd interview, which is clearly why he name dropped the magazine, he tried to explain all this.
Victim blaming is Dobson's WHOLE THING, I'm honestly not sure he knows he's doing it sometimes. We're going to keep pointing it out.
Apparently there are three things kids feel they have to have to feel good about themselves. The first is that they are attractive. He then drops the astonishing information that 80% of teens don't like how they look.
Can you imagine being such a condescending prick?
I'm sorry, Dobson. IS it all done in fun? That's not quite how bullying works. Power dynamics are a thing.
No, Dobson. That's called verbal abuse. FFS
The second recommendation he has is Face Your Problem. Ah yes. This is a man who loves bootstraps. But what he recommends seems truly and deeply... concerning to me.
He would like you to identify every single thing you don't like about yourself and notes you'll probably need a big stack of paper because most people can find too many things.
And I guess if you feel bad about yourself anyway after this, that will mean that you REALLY failed.
