ABC’s The Good Doctor is now in its second season, so maybe they figured it was time to liven things up. On a recent episode entitled “Empathy,” viewers are asked to feel sorry for a man with pedophilic tendencies, who doesn’t act on them.
The producers really need to look up the meaning of the word “empathy,” because it doesn’t mean what they think it does. I feel sorry for someone who has this mental illness but the idea that we are actually supposed to be accepting and welcoming on top of it? That’s crazy.
