In 2020, I am vowing to only date men committed to prioritizing their emotional and mental health. If he doesn’t go to therapy, I’m not interested.

Right.

Shanita Hubbard is a former therapist, current adjunct sociology professor,

Adjunct means non-tenure track, paid by the semester, paid near nothing in fact. At a Community College too which means Fenland Tech and teaching Meat 2.

On the other hand she’s just scored what Ezra’s never going to let me do which is write at Vox.com

    That’s called a “twofer” on the scale of batshit crazy.

  2. 1) she’s talking her own book, obvs

    2) why would this adjunct-deliveroo-uber type also by a ‘professor’?

    The world is not what it was when I was young.

  3. I am vowing to only date men committed to prioritizing their emotional and mental health.

    Prince Harry will be available shortly.

  4. Well, though I have been married for decades, I do recall dating a few wacky women when I was young. Part of growing up. But you don’t want to do it too many times.

  5. My wife is into all this psychotropic woo woo shit as well. I told her there I wasn’t spending any more money be shown an ink blob picture of my parents fighting.

  6. “she’s talking her own book, obvs” – yes worthy of a 20st home based aromatherapist writing an article on losing weight in the local free what’s on mag in which she bought a half page ad in.

    A fairly good way for a man to prioritise his emotional and mental health is every time he encounters someone like this to run like fuck.

  8. Fuck therapy – I’m with Crocodile Dundee: talk to your mates when things are tough. Arseholes like her want to normalise psychotherapy for everyone. Someone with top mental health doesn’t need therapy – it’ll fuck with your head.

    Amen.

    Steve- lol. i immediately regretted posting it in case some technical bod reveals it to be down to self incriminating worstall’s law pendantry. i did wear a red cap once,I think, and if that hoodie turns out to read banana republic i might have to go into hiding for a while.

  11. VP – seems like she’s a fairly typical frizzy-haired woke narcissist. They’re ten a penny in the States.

    One look at her and you already know she has strong opinions on Trump, feminism, Beyonce and African American haircare products.

    Like some sort of racist Sherlock Holmes, I could also posit with reasonable certainly that she has unironically used the phrase “yass kween!” and believes Ghostbusters (2016) was a culturally significant happening. Pretty tedious, really. It’s the real life version of Vogon poetry.

  12. “I’m not your project or something you can control.” (from linked article)

    The chap who said this to her was far more sane than she is. Far too many women see their man as a project – someone that they can mould and reform. This can work if the process is two-way, but will fail if it’s one-way.

    She’s bat-shit crazy, deeply manipulative and further deranged by feminist psycho-babble.

  13. Bloke in North Dorset

    In 5 years she, and quite a few others, will be writing articles about how the patriarchy makes women lonely without any sense of irony.

  14. I rate her at “>5 cats.”

    ‘If he doesn’t go to therapy’

    How would you know if they did or didn’t? You just going to up and ask them?

    No alpha male goes to therapy. She’s looking for Pajama Boy.

    Most of the time most men never give their mental and emotional health a thought. Is emotional health even “a thing” for men who don’t wear “This Is What A Feminist Looks Like” T-shirts?

  16. Worse, her credentials as a therapist are tarnished by the job she left it for.

    Don’t take this to mean I’m bashing adjuncts or community colleges. But if you’re leaving your own business for something that is basically like owning a business without any of the benefits, then you weren’t doing so well as a therapist.

  17. ..and presumably will require her would-be mate to go to the GP on a regular basis, and similarly the endocrinologist, oncologist, pulmonologist, gastroenterologist, urologist,….

    Even if nobody’s seen any problems.

    Well, obviously, other than her.

    I see cats in her future.

  18. John77 beat me to it, but surely a person who has reached mental and emotional health won’t need a therapist.

    Imagine saying that you only wanted to date healthy people — so they better be needing a doctor frequently!

  19. No, I think she has a point.
    If the guy is interested in dating her, he definitely should be in therapy.
    lots and lots of therapy.

    Possibly a strait jacket too
