While we would normally be in favor of any liberals seeking professional help, we can’t help but see this story and wonder what the mighty frontiersmen who forged this nation would think if they could see us now. Seriously, liberals are so distraught about the duly and properly elected president of the United States that they need to pay up to $80 an hour so some creep can cuddle with them and make their sorrows disappear? If you ever heard a liberal talk about their political beliefs and thought, “Christ, how could anyone THINK this way?”…this trend goes a long way towards providing an explanation. These are basically children in disguise as adults – people who cannot cope with reality and must find every way possible to escape. It’s sad.
And also, a little funny.
From Rolling Stone:
On a Saturday night in Venice, California, light spills from an open door on an otherwise dark street. The space appears to be an art gallery or studio: blank walls, cubbies for shoes and personal items and cushioned mats and pillows lining half of the room’s hardwood floor.
Twelve individuals filter into the room – dressed in pajamas, yoga attire, sweatpants – some more confidently than others. There are a handful who remove their shoes immediately and find a place on the floor, blanket in tow, presumably preparing for some grand slumber party or group nap. Each visitor is greeted by a woman wielding an iPad. “Would you like a hug?” she asks.
First of all, that sounds extraordinarily disturbing.
Second, while these cuddle groups have apparently been around for some time, Rolling Stone reports that they’ve seen a massive explosion in popularity since Trump’s election.
“What makes the organized effort of being held, a service that comes with a cost (Cuddlist sessions go for $80 an hour), something that aids in relieving the fear and discomfort that has come with Trump’s presidency?” the magazine asks. “Marcia Baczynski, co-founder of Cuddle Party, has seen her already established clientele base reacting to the election. Many of them, she says, feel triggered by Trump’s actions, history of sexual abuse allegations and manipulative behaviors.”
Oh please. You’re telling us that people who will never be within 100 miles of President Trump have to go pay a stranger to hold them because he said some nasty stuff on a bus ten years ago? If that’s the case, these folks need therapy sessions that go well beyond a hug.
