Don't Get Me Started.
It was when I saw him talking about teen sex when I was in highschool that I immediately realized I might very well loathe "Dr." Phil.
He tends to make insane blanket judgements.
During said episode he made it very clear that the only reasons teenagers have sex are:
-Girl is pressured into it by boy she likes. He gets what he wants an leaves her. Every time.
-Boys are all sex fiends and only think of sex. EVER.
-All girls regret losing their virginity. ALL of them.
I only got about halfway through the show.
I know a lot of times one only hears about the above situations when teen sex is mentioned. To say that this is the *ONLY* way it ever happens galled me.
I was a teenager when I first had sex. It was beautiful. I was safe, and smart about it. (*GASP*) I don't feel regret whatsoever, nor feel guilty or like a tramp.(UNHEARD OF!) The boy didn't leave ME. 4 years later we're still together!
I just.....never saw the appeal in bringing people who have problems onto a show to yell at them from a completely onesided point of view THEN send them to professionals. I don't see how that helps at all.
