She also made another comment to me. She made mention that some bro was up there warning them not to 'think anything negative about the F&DS' or something to that effect. It really irked her and she said to me after that "it felt like they're trying to control your thinking".
I remember hearing (later on it came out in an Ex-JW book), at a circuit assembly, the speaker say that Sisters should not show, even by their facial expressions, any disapproval.
That was over thirty years ago. The more things change the more they stay the same.
