@ The “Self-Help” Writer Spreading Extremely Harmful Advice on Medium

You know who you are and I know you read this.

Dude, stop.

Clearly the satire hasn’t worked so I guess I need to lay it out for you.

Your advice is harmful. I’m not even making a joke here. It’s harmful. Telling people they are weak, morally dubious or otherwise unfulfilled for wanting a partner who pays attention to them, talks to them and affirms them is harmful.
