This is The Shit

I'm not going to pretend that this is a deep, meaningful place for you to develop an insightful thought process for the world that we live in today. I'm not even going to pretend that this is a place for you to broaden your horizons and branch out to new ideas. This is purely a place for you to see what is, in fact, The Shit, and what is not. For those that do not quite know what is The Shit, you shall now know. For those that do not yet know what isn't The Shit, I shall gladly inform you. For this...this is The Shit.

For someone who doesn’t follow my religion much anymore, I still get offended by jokes

I get that. I used to be Muslim, and even though I’m definitely not anymore, I find jokes about Islam/Muslims mildly infuriating

I’m so glad someone can relate. I was raised Mormon and hearing jokes about multiple wives and being a cult just makes me want to hurt someone.

YES. Just yes.

Just because I don’t follow it doesn’t mean that I think it should be bashed. I feel that way about any religion.

I just realized that I finished The Treatment a few days ago & still didn’t review the series, so here it is: The Program & The Treatment are two of my favorite books. I’m completely obsessed with everything about this series. I love the characters so much. Suzanne Young gave them all so much personality. Sloane, James, Lacey, & Dallas are so relateable & I love everything about them; then there are the horrible, evil brainwashing handlers & doctors who keep you on the edge of your seat the entire book, & then there is Realm who you don’t know for sure you can trust. I also love both the storyline & the concept of the series - love, memories, lost memories, side effects of medications, being hospitalized, depression, mental illness, & suicide. Which, in my own personal struggles, I can relate very closely to. I felt The Treatment ended the series perfectly & tied up all loose ends. I just wish this series could have been more than two books. All that being said, I love absolutely everything about this book series & I keep the story & characters very close to my heart. I give it a 5/5 👍☺️ #bookreview #theprogram #thetreatment #book #books #mentalillness #depression

I also love this series! The only thing I would say against it is that the second half of The Treatment felt way too rushed. It was like she was writing a somewhat detailed synopsis of her story.

“It is important that you understand that you are not required to change your thinking or the questions you may have in your own mind regarding the ordination of women, but you need to make it a private matter and work through this issue with your bishop or branch president.”

letter from Kate Kelly’s stake president placing her on informal probation

This afternoon I got a text from my husband with a link to the NY Times. I saw the article’s title—“Two Activists Within Mormon Church Threatened With Excommunication”—and I knew, with a sick feeling in my stomach, that one of them was going to be Kate Kelly, the founder of Ordain Women. And it was. And then I saw John Dehlin’s name, and my stomach disappeared altogether.

When I read the above passage quoted and paraphrased in the article, all I could think was this:

We are expected to suffer in silence.

I have felt that expectation personally, felt it as a crushing force in my life, over my thoughts, around my heart. But now it is no longer an expectation. It is a requirement.

I wasn’t able to explain to myself why that quotation bothered me so much, but you have explained it perfectly.

We are expected to suffer in silence.

That is truly a powerful and horrible thing.

Wtf is up with all of these god damn Marlon Brando pics on my dash?

Hey, remember that one time when you went to bed at 11:00 and actually fell asleep?

Me neither.
