    At least she wasn't made to look like a freak in school in front of her peers and then sell false religion door to door on Saturday's while normal kids were with their families at track meets, football games etc.

    I watched Henry Louis Gates show "Finding Your Roots" where they went into this aspect of her life. But there they put a positive spin on her being able to **** anything that would come along. And how loose charters in story lines appeal to her. That this was some how liberating.

    A couple of years ago 2019 my son took me to met a woman [in her 30's] who leads a 'swinging life style' interested in information as to whether she could sue the Society for being molested by elder when in her early teens who liked to put his hand up her dress and feel her panties, even when she being on her period. This prior to change in Calif. State law on statute of limitations, so the only thing I could tell her was contact Zalkin. She hooks up with a attorney and travels to 'swinger parties'. She was so loose she even propositioned me. It is a terrible thing to see life's destroyed by emotional process where the escaping of repressive cult control results in unrestrained pursuit of excesses.

    Several months later I outed the elder in one of my letters addressed to the homes of the church internal 'grape vine'. Have no idea as what effect it had as the shunning of this apostate is absolute.

    This is why I think there should be a class action lawsuit against the JW religion, many of us are traumatized, even though we didn’t get molested. I read something recently which made me understand something about myself. This constant barrage of “THE END” being sooo close had me constantly on edge, never able to be myself, knowing Jehovah hated me because I hated being a witness and being different, caused my brain to be flooded with cortisol all the time. It’s not good. They owe me! And many of you, also.

    and add to that all the crap about demons and evil spirits. Just what a kid needs to hear.

    Um, after reading through a few articles on this, I don't really understand the actual details of the "trauma" she suffered. I'm not saying it wasn't real for her and don't want to minimize someone else's pain, but to me what I read sounded fairly vague. Maybe I read the wrong articles...

    Anyway, I doubt it was worse than what most of us have gone through with the JWs. At least her experience was over relatively quickly compared to many of us. My experience lasted decades and yet I don't count myself as "psychologically traumatized" at all. I actually feel quite normal and consider myself reasonably well-adjusted.

    I'm wondering if perhaps her Hollywood lifestyle exacerbated whatever trauma she experienced. Immersing myself into THAT culture and lifestyle would most certainly traumatize me.
