Can I Call You Dick? | Richard A. Gardner

On this episode, Ginger returns to her roots: true crime, bad science, and sexual predators.

We’re talking about Richard Gardner, child psychiatrist and man who was definitely subscribed to TheRedPill on Reddit, whose name was recently dropped in HBO’s “Allen V. Farrow” docuseries. Gardner was the brain behind “Parental Alienation Syndrome,” a thing that is definitely not real but still managed to use in order to ruin lives for decades. This is definitely a Vodka Cranberry (hold the Cranberry) kind of episode. Featuring Ren’s new favorite serotonin-boosting TV show, Destiel becoming canon, and the eternal reminder to stop comparing your hurt feelings to the Holocaust. 

Self Care Plan

Ginger looked up self care tips for trauma survivors and just ended up finding some fire self-care tips, so here’s three of her favorites.

  1. Look ahead to your upcoming week/month and see if there are any obligations that you can remove or delegate to someone else.
  2. Reach out to a support group/group chat for some positive reinforcement.
  3. Wash your face, brush your teeth, take a shower, change your clothes. Sometimes that’s all you can do but it can make you feel SO much better.

This F***ing Guy is a podcast about self-care; if self-care is one long scream into the void. Alcohol not included (but recommended).
