We are on Chapter 5 - A Notion Called Emotion.
I would just like to mention straight off the bat that it is weird (and/or revealing?) that he put emotion at the end of his book. After he talks about love and self-esteem?
Speaking of not a lot of fun! Dobson goes on to say that maybe the best way to talk about this is to tell a story from his childhood.
So this is a story I actually remember pretty well from the first time. It's probably important to remember his love of dogs.
I feel it is always important to point out in moments like these how much Dobson idolizes his father in what we have read, how much he tries to emulate him and always has.
Basically mom had been driving home, the little dog came running out to greet her, jumped up on the car as it was pulling in. The dog missed a step, fell under the wheel, mom feels the car run over him. She runs back, his back is broken, he's whimpering.
I... it DOES seem so terrible to lose a dog, Dobson. Especially in such a traumatic way, my god! It is a weird flex to minimize it.
1) If someone told me that kind of horrific story about my pet dying at ANY POINT I would be absolutely destroyed.
2) His dad SPECIFICALLY TOLD HIM to "take it like a man" which would shut most kids down?
Impulses are part of being a teenager or w/e. "Don't let them lead you into anything that will damage the rest of your life."
So not to repeat myself but WHY DOES DOBSON HATE KIDS?
Talk with me friends! Was this a thing for you?
The hilarious thing about this is that his concept of this is SO TAME compared to now. As an enby queer kid, I love to imagine his look of horror at my existence
Ever the fucking charmer, Dobson.
Please feel free to like, share, comment, DM. I love hearing from you. <3
