Oh, I remember this site. It irritated the crap out of me during my FLDS-snarking phase.

Yes honey, because abuse victims NEVER have any moments of happiness in their lives. Especially in a subculture where "keeping sweet" is the epitome of godly femininity or some such bullshit.

I will say this- those pictures with the huge sunglasses on the babies are kind of cute. I haven't read past that first post yet, though.

those photos of the jessop family are fascinating, though. they're linked on the right side.

Ugh...on top of everything else that I take issue with regarding the FLDS...that horse corral is abominable....accidents waiting to happen for horses and kids alike.

Top Ten Signs You Are A Victim of Religious Persecution

10. When people talk about where THEY live it is a four-plex, apartment building or ranch. When they talk about the four-plex, apartment or ranch YOU live at, it is a compound.

9. Your religion is constantly referred to as a cult, or a sect.

8. The state decides how your children are to worship by taking away their religious documents and scriptures.

7. When you move to a state, laws are changed specifically to target your religion.

6. The only adults in your state NOT allowed to MARRY at 14 or 16 years old are the members of your congregation.

5. Based on looks given to someone in a courtroom, you are now religious fanatics and are prone to violence.

4. The state accepts birth certificates as proof of age for everyone, except those practicing your religion.

3. You can't have your children back unless you denounce your religion, and take classes learning how to think like them.

2. Your leader is put on the top ten most wanted list, and hunted like a terrrorist; for performing a wedding ceremony.

1. The children of your religion are hauled away in buses displaying the name of another church.

Marry at 14??? Only if with a million other requirements, and only in a few states. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marriageable_age

This is so ridiculous. Additionally, I read the "Truth about Flora Jessop" one, and it pointed out that the author (Gary Naler) is a nutcase in the comments: http://fldsview.blogspot.com/2008/07/flora-jessop.html

Whoa, Pliggy, I just went to the site for The Curse.

"As this book clearly reveals, the root of this Curse lies in women, the black man, feminized men, the church, and is even rooted 3,726 years before in Abraham."

Sorry, but this is not a journalist that I'm going to take seriously. He's clearly a homophobic, mysoginist bigot. He may have told the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth with the Flora and Ruth and all situation, but he lost all credibility with the basis of his book. I'll keep an open mind on what you say but his word is simply hot air.

I also dislike the attempts to discredit any and all cries of rape or abuse from women. I'm pretty sure whoever's writing doesn't believe in the existence of spousal rape or honest women, and takes the man's word over the woman's every time. Disgusting.

Warren Jeffs has been in the news a lot lately. Not surprising, his antics. Firing his law team (again) to delay (again.) He needs to face it--he's going to jail. He thinks he won't get justice because he know he won't win. That's because HE'S WRONG.

I'm so glad he got a woman judge. :mrgreen:

When I was in Cosmetology school, I would do those hairstyles on my long haired mannequin. :lol: :D

      Planning on scheduling my ankle surgery around Trump's Georgia trial - if I'm forced to be off my feet, I might as well be entertained.

      Stupid loneliness!
      Kid 1 went back to college (yeah! But sad foe me, she stayed with me all summer. It was nice to start a new phase in our mother/daughter relationship)
      Zero prospects on dates. (Not that I have tried online dating, scared of that but I have reached put to a new group at church, etc.
      I asked a friend to go to dinner the other night so I wasn't eating alone, again. The friend had plans, all my friends always have plans. I see stuff on social media, I'm never invited. I'm single, I'm the 3rd or 5th wheel.
      My one parent friend at kid 2's fall sport won't be there because their daughter made varsity (Yeah for her!!! Seriously happy for her. Sad for me for another sport I basically sit alone, did that majority of spring and summer sporting events.)
      And now I'm crying as my mom told me 2 different funny stores that former teachers remembered about my twin. Both stories were about how they got a crack out of my twin's antics (my parents went to a funeral today and saw former colleagues). Teachers remember me (after all I was a twin and teachers' kid) but none would have memorable stories of me. 
      I feel invisible. 
      Don't worry, this will pass,  it always does. I just need a pity party for a few days. I'm not in anyway going to harm myself. As lonely as I am, I have a very full life I (usually) love. I just needed to vent and cry for a moment. 
      If you are still reading this, thanks Fjer. 😊

      Absolutely awful about the fires on Maui. In 2019, I stayed in Lahaina. I liked to sit on the sea wall, which is the only structure left now, and watch the water. People are receiving help, but many had to leave pets. Please donate to the Maui Humane Society, which is leading efforts to find, treat, and reunite pets.

      Nebraska’s new football coach, who is involved in an organization called Man Up Ministries, labels certain players “Alphas” and sometimes “extreme Alphas” and the local paper has a nice piece on why people objecting to the term “alpha male” are wrong and it has a “nice ring”. 🤮🤮🤮🤮
