Would she be able to think critically?

A heart-rending and infuriating but perhaps ultimately hopeful thread:

Oh god. Four years old. It’s unconscionable.


I think we can feel Carol’s fury with her – I think the typos are a kind of fury thermometer. I’m pretty sure I start missing keys when I get wrathful.


Great, the therapist thinks telling a girl that girls can have short hair and wear jeans is confusing while telling her she’s a boy is not confusing. I think we need a new Theory of Confusion.

Thinking critically is a good thing, including for therapists. Affirmation and Validation are not always the best thing for people.
