#100OutOf100 Dr Phil And Why An Interabled Couple Turned Him Down

March 26, 2019

Same Difference finds the Dr Phil disability controversy very very upsetting.

Why?

Because OF COURSE disabled people can fall in love and have meaningful relationships. And OF COURSE those relationships can be with non-disabled partners that we find and choose for ourselves. And OF COURSE interabled relationships can work well.

OF COURSE interabled relationships can be difficult. But what relationship isn’t difficult?

Dr Phil’s advice was awful, and his statistic was very untrue.

Same Difference believes that the media and celebrities have great power over their audiences. The power to influence, shape and change opinions.

Hearing that an American TV institution, Dr Phil, is representing such a serious and real issue so negatively is deeply upsetting to our physically disabled, hopelessly romantic editor.

Same Difference would like to assure readers that romantic relationships are a personal choice and any two people who choose to be in a romantic relationship, whether one or both of them are disabled, can and should be encouraged to do anything that works for them in their personal life.

    Well to point out the …… obvious… –
    Don’t take medical advice from Tabloid TV Quacks.
    .

    “Dr” Phil – Qualifications –
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phil_McGraw

    “McGraw graduated in 1975 from Midwestern State University with a B.A. in psychology. He went on to earn an M.A. in experimental psychology in 1976, and a Ph.D. degree in clinical psychology in 1979 at the University of North Texas, where his dissertation was titled “Rheumatoid Arthritis: A Psychological Intervention””
    “He has not held a medical license to practice psychology since 2006.”

    ZERO Medical qualifications, NOT a Medical “Doctor”.

    If it was in the UK it would be breaking this law –

    Medical Act 1983 –
    Penalty for pretending to be registered –
    http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1983/54/section/49
    Penalty for pretending to hold a licence to practise –
    http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1983/54/section/49A

    Like all of those criminal NHS quacks are –

    Misconduct in Public Office –
