I am reading a discussion about how Steve and Bucky in Avengers (or Marvel? I am shaky on the differences, I am not into comics) would not be into pop psychology and would not find going to a psychologist/therapist natural and helpful, and thinking "Oh yes".

I mean, I was born in the 1970s, not 1920s, but in a very different culture where the pop psychology is just coming in. And I have been reading fanfics for years but sometimes the seeming omnipresence of therapy drives me batty. I have no idea whether it's like this in real-life USA, but. People talking about things. "Do you want to talk about this?" Everyone seemingly being obligated to go to a therapist. I mean, if I had a traumatic experience and was made to go to a therapist, I'd probably grit my teeth and checked how do I get rid of this fastest, and would have considered this a part of traumatic experience.

And in fanfic it reads a bit like the way slashy sex scenes used to explain 1-2-3 fingers and obligatory condoms.
