Regarding a I think there's a serious lack of statistics to back up his statements - he relies on readers being convinced by the familiar sound of the problems he describes, and on their being disarmed by the idea that they aren't alone in suffering those problems, which I think is quite dodgy. And then b yes, he does acknowledge that he can While I somewhat relate to his message I had to question a his methodology and b his not-unrelated narrowness of view and sweeping generalisations. And then b yes, he does acknowledge that he can only write knowledgeably about the G in LGBT, and yes he acknowledges that he draws on the experiences of his patients for this But given that all of the patients who can or will access his therapy seem to be rich, white, college-educated men, can he really claim to have written with any kind of representative insight into 'the gay experience'? What about the isolation, rejection and exoticisation suffered by non-white people at the hands of a gay community that is for reasons Dr Downs in fact describes but does not connect to this too often short-sighted and narrow-minded? What about working class or non-college-educated men - how relevant is 'Letting Go of Fabulous' when this notion of 'fabulousness' was only ever accessible to a minority of gay men? Or are we to believe that all gay men sublimate their rage with fabulous parties, high-flying careers at Hewlett-Packard and expensive drugs? Another otherwise-interesting step away from bigotry fails to take into account all but the middle-class white figure c. Still, though, a very important book and in many ways useful. The former genre is something I've just never paid much attention to, the latter is something I've actively ignored from my own snobby contempt I still remember rolling my eyes every afternoon as a kid when my mom would put on Oprah. Anyway, the basic underlying assumption of this book-- that gay men specifically have a spate of psychological issues which follow them throughout This is kind of at the intersection of 2 genres I seldom read: non-fiction about LGBT issues, and popular psychology.
