It's just a symptom

Personality is a social construction. It is something that you only have in relation to other people. Why then is the prevailing theory of personality disorders centered on individuals? It seems to me like if you were actually interested in these phenomenena you would be driven to social criticism. But instead, you're tailoring people to fit the suit. No wonder we're upset. It's as if you went to a shoe store and they only had one sized shoe, you'd be a bit miffed if they told you that the problem was with your feet. You'd be especially miffed if they lopped off your fucking toes and jammed you into a shoe several sizes too small. You following me here? Picking up what I'm putting down? Am I making sense to y'all?
