I frequently think about what society would look like if therapists (psychologists, etc) weren't largely framed as authority figures and gatekeepers - against children, against gender minorities, against those with disabilities.
@AmyZenunim Makes me think of The Disposessed, and the way experts become gatekeepers and acquire power even in an anti-hierarchical society.
@AmyZenunim also how going to therapy is stigmatized in some circles
as if it would be some personal failure that you didn't manage to pull yourself out with your bootstraps
society, u ok?
