Did you find a fake social media post and can prove it? Suspicious of a news report that sounds a little too manufactured? Here's a place to stick your head into, instead of the sand.
There is SO MUCH wrong with that it's hard to know where to start. She's a clinician who doesn't understand the first thing about what her clients are going through. Her first problem is that she thinks "incel" is a philosophy rather than a state of being, so her entire strategy for "treating" them is based on a false foundation. It's no wonder she didn't get the results she expected. Ironically, she could have easily cured every incel she's ever worked with, but the solution is not between her ears.
Psychology is not a science. It is, at best, an art, and at worst it's rank quackery... right up there with alchemy and phrenology. Her latent realization that her "expertise" is a steaming load of horse crap may be part of the reason she's having such a hard time "processing" the event. Another reason may be that she's a woman who reacts like a woman... her credentials don't override the fact that she's every bit as enslaved to her emotions as any other average woman... and her "learning" actively hinders her attempt to understand what men go through. As a woman with an internet connection, she has never known what it's like to not have sex on tap... much less to go for years without the slightest interest from the opposite sex like some of those guys do. She spent her entire life in an educational system primarily run by women for the benefit women based on the perspectives of women. She exhibits no indication that it has ever even occurred to her that every one of her clients had the exact opposite experience their entire lives.
She thinks that incels are engaging in some grand conspiracy to harm women, and that they constitute a movement. They aren't and they don't. To the extent that they congregate with each other, it's because those are the only places they can go without being mocked. The same people who start throwing them out before they even reach puberty turn around and blame them for not being assimilated as young adults. Most incels are just regular guys raised by single mothers or in two-parent homes where the father has been emasculated. If they're not among the 20% of men who women think of as attractive (there's actual science behind that number), they spend their entire lives being simultaneously crapped on and being told how much male privilege they have.
At no point does it ever occur to her that the Sexual Marketplace - which is entirely controlled by women - has changed over the years and created a sexual underclass of men who look at how much is expected of men and at how little reward or even respect they''re likely to get as individuals and say, "Screw this, and screw the people who are doing it."
The real surprise in not how often incels lash out, but how rarely they do. When one of those guys reacts in a way that shows his disappointment at his being relegated to a life of rejection (like Scooter Guy from two days ago), he's ridiculed and told that his feelings are invalid... dangerous, even. Is it any wonder that after learning that such feelings must never be given voice outside of "incel spaces" that a rare few of them finally snap? More people drown in buckets than die at the hands of incels, yet this "clinician" who is supposed to be an expert in this phenomenon knows-somebody-who-knows-somebody-who-was-killed and immediately tosses several million young men into a mental bin marked, "Irredeemably Subhuman" based on the actions of one broken young man. She's part of the problem she claims to be so bothered by.
If she cared about incels - and understood their problem - she would be counseling young women to stop being Chad-chasers and sending the incels to us to tell them how to fix themselves.Read More
Most definitely. Having worked in mental health and knowing this posting was made on reddit, I'm inclined to say this is entirely a work of fiction intended to demoralize psychologically distressed men. In all my time, I never once went looking for clients, nor did I ever have to. With how dependent private medical and mental health corporations are on government funding, no one has any financial incentive to do so. Most of my clients came by way of referrals from local municipal, state level, federal agencies, and the rare HMO.
Many of the clinics I worked with set policies that would frustrate clients who came in off the street. They would deliberately schedule walk-ins for our days off as a soft fu&% you, because the corporate welfare was just that much easier to get.
My advice to most "incels" is the same as I give here to most of you guys. Unplug from the entire media machine, learn to identify and avoid psychotic individuals. Keep a journal within which you can pour your thoughts and feelings into. And most importantly, find productive mentally stimulating hobbies that satisfy and enrich you emotionally.Your mental health will thank you for it in ways no drug ever could.Read More
@TheRedPike He was probably afraid of doing the right thing. I'm not even joking. There's a lot of people who know that someone is fucking them over illegally but don't even think about calling the police. They even excuse away the person's behavior. Gross.
@slutmagazine Same answer: not even voting season so it's contingent on who is running. There aren't any politicians I'd vote for "because they're the Democrat running" or any other party, though the Libertarians usually align most consistently with my inclinations whatever they get involved with. My inclinations tend to lean "liberal" but that does not mean I feel any affinity or loyalty to the Democratic party as it has actually existed my whole voting age life.
California ballot measures I virtually always vote NO because no matter who's endorsing it or the window dressing applied, they usually involve HUGE voted indebtedness and are a tool to bypass the state's Prop 13 that limits annual property tax increases and precludes huge pork barrel projects. Sometimes the ballot proposition tool gets used as intended and gets through popular laws and legislation (without an asinine money grab attached) that the regular political mechanisms deliberately fail to address; those are the types of propositions likely to get a yes vote from me.
Democrat or Republican on the surface, most mainstream politicians are running Oligarchy Game for personal gain, in actual practice. This applies particularly to well established Congressmen and Senators, no matter how populist and idealist they were in their early years.Read More
@deeplydisturbed You're the one in a cult man. Did you live through the middle ages? So how do you know? All you have is your propaganda that was written by the guys who most benefit from it.
enjoying all the benefits of Capitalism
Uh okay what benefits are those? Rampant crime, shitty culture, debt slavery? Go ahead and show your kids. I don't care about them. I guess that's the most capitalistic attitude of all. lmao.
This is literally a cult.
Good luck. I wish you well. I do find it odd, however that you have no problem enjoying all the benefits of Capitalism while shitting on it.
You cannot make this shit up. I am going to show my kids your response. Even they will be able to see it for what it is.
