I grew up around VERY HYPOCRITICAL JW YOUTH. Many of whom I now know at 20 were NEVER living up to the lie they put out ... STUPID me I WAS. Here I stand now because of it - I am sure most of you here being Ex-JW's know this very familiar situation. So I wrote this myself right now for me and you...:
- Subsitute "Johnny" for "Jessica" (or something) if a person you can relate to was female.
"Johnny" is the model JW in the hall. He may even be the elder's son. Which as we all know gives him EXTRA immunity (usually). He comments at every meeting. He goes out in serivce regulary. He is "HAPPY TO BE A JW". Why?
Of course there is more ."Johnny" is accepted by the JW Youth Clique (TM) They like him KNOW that this cult is a sham. So they live their life. Often to a much more wild extent than world youth (though this is NEVER spoken of across the KH platform)
BTW: This is where although being f'ing hypocrities they are 10000000X smarter than those JW youth that got duped/brainwashed into beliving that you should follow the Watchtower/Jehovah during your youth.
All the while, uknown to the often strict JW Parents (and other members of the KH), perfect "Johnny" is living a hardcore double life. That's right people. Probably the only reason Johnny is sooo confident, self assured, ambitious, and happy all the part time he is around JW''s and KH because he doing his own thing on the side full time. Chances are, like many "worldy youth", "Johnny" is already having sex, and/or drinking, and/or parting, and/or you-fill-in-the-blank. He CERTAINLY isnt shy around girls ... and by proxy is NEVER self concious around other JW's - but still has the common sense to play "nice guy" around the older JW women. BRILLIANT. Being "nice guy" around JW women gets you browine points 100% of the time. So OF COURSE it is no thing to show up for a couple of hours and pretend to be something else - espically when the reward (accpetance and/or admiration from other JW's without shunning) is so good.
Meanwhile good, often nerdy due to a restriction from other activities deemed "too wordly" boy "Wizard" is ACTUALLY doing and living his youth towing the line the way the Watchtowe and GB tell him. He lives by the book 100% ... well not always. But when he fails he often blames himself. The JW cult by design, since he is socially awkward, breaks him. He spirals into a broken young man (or 20 something). As we all know whining, lack of confidence, deperation, and a always-serious attidue is a SUREFIRE repellant for females. If he doesnt do something fast he might end up like another one of the VERY REPRESSED 40 year old virgin guys in the Kingdom Halls (sadly they exist - there used to be one in my hall). Hopefully he sees its all a cult and gets out ... but how to make up for lost years?
So guys and girls ... what's you take on my take?
