Therapist or The Rapist?

Honestly, I never realized this until yesterday evening but did it ever occur to you that the word "therapist" is also "the rapist"?

I started at it for a good 30 seconds before I realized that, no, it actually said therapist. Something about this font didn’t work for me. Weird.
