Curse of Self-Awareness

I’m writing a book proposal for my work on dissociation, and it’s hard not to include every pop culture reference as I come across them. So, for the time being, I’ll place this right here. A great nod to Gordon Gallup’s hypothesis that mirror self-recognition is indicative of self-awareness, from Big Mouth. My students turned me on to this show, so I’m watching it with my teenage son. He, of course, has already watched both seasons twice, but it’s a nice opportunity to bond and is funny as shit.
