What I'm saying is I don't trust his lens for shit.
Don't ever let anyone make you feel shame for staying safe. We need you.

She is 13yo. Assuming this was a real person, which... ehhhh. But if it was. THIRTEEN YEARS OLD. It is not an accident or the fault of a literal child if she ends up in that kind of addiction at 13. Something terrible has happened.
So basically he talks about how kiddos with disabilities (he calls them handicaps) may feel very badly about themselves because of conformity. Which... okay, his examples are a girl at the school he worked who was blind who wouldn't accept help.

Have a good week!
