Since this is your first therapy session, Louis, why don’t we start with you telling me a little bit about what brought you here. For the past few months, I’ve been feeling really depressed. I’ve been sad before but this is…this is different. I just feel really alone and I don’t have anyone to talk to… But you’re white. What does that have to do with it? Oh, I’m sorry. I didn’t realize you were gay. I’m not. But you identify as a different gender? No. So you’re a straight white cis male who feels alone? Yeah. How could you ever feel alone? Or unhappy? Um, that’s what I’m here to talk about. Do you realize the kinds of problems people who aren’t straight white cis males have? No, I don’t. Of course you don’t. Is this how this works? Can I start talking about why I’m sad. I guess. I’ve been feeling, um, deep grief ever since my father died. Okay. I always felt distant from him, ever since I was a child. And I never got a chance to tell him how I really felt. You know that 23% of children are raised in a household with just a single mother. No, I didn’t know that. Does that relate to my situation somehow? Like, even though I’m an adult, I’ve become the child of a single mother? It that, like, Freudian or something? No, I’m just pointing out that at least 23% of children have it worse than you. Oh. Okay. But I still miss my dad. So you’re saying that fathers are more capable than mothers. No, no not at all. I love my mother. She’s actually having a harder time dealing with the death of my father. They were married for 50 years. That’s sexist. What? The institution of marriage is sexist. And abusive. My father was a kind man. He loved my mother. According to whose definition of love? The patriarchy’s? No, my mom’s. Your mother isn’t a woman of color, is she? No. Then she sounds very confused. I don’t know what we’re talking about anymore. You know what, Louis, why don’t we move on to something a little less problematic? Um, ah, you had written in your assessment you were having thoughts of suicide. Yeah, I um…I’ve thought about hanging myself. With rope? Oh my god. Yeah I know. It’s an awful thought to have, and I’m pretty scared. I can’t believe you’d be so insensitive. Insensitive? Hello! Lynchings in the south? You’re a white man appropriating black pain. If I hang myself, it’s a lynching? Metaphorically. America is moving forward, and it doesn’t need white men anymore. And this is your way of taking back your lost status. By killing myself? I see this all the time. Straight white men think they can stop the train of progress by jumping in front of it. It’s disgusting. Can we stop talking about suicide, please? Oh, this is all about you, isn’t it? This is my therapy session that I’m paying for. So yeah. Racist. What’s racist? You are so focused on your own narrow view. What about the half-black half-Latino trans lesbian single mother working two minimum-wage jobs just to make ends meet. She can’t afford therapy. So, because she can’t afford a therapist, I shouldn’t have one? No, go to therapy. But talk about her! Why would I talk about her? Because she has problems. Oh okay, so if she can tackle her problems, I can tackle mine. No, you f***ing idiot! She will never overcome because you are keeping her down. I don’t even know who the f**k you’re talking about! You know what? I gotta be totally honest with you, Louis. You’ve got a lot of work to do, and it’s gonna take several sessions for me to break through to a white supremacist. I’m not a white supremacist. Yes, you are. You have feelings of shame and sadness and you think that they’re all about you. But they’re not. What those feelings are really about is how you’ve enslaved women, people of color, and the LGBTQ community in a toxic system of white patriarchal supremacy. And until you admit that, you’ll never change. I’ve never wanted to kill myself more than I do right now.
