That awkward moment when your mother comes across your anonymous blog and finds out the details of your abuse as well as you talking about how she has hurt you...
TrueFreedomI hope that it leads to healing.

Anyone ever have a misspelled name on an airline ticket through a travel agent? How do you fix it? I imagine the travel agent can fix it?

Watched the movie Spotlight last night. It was okay. The plot and acting carried the film. Formalistically, it was average. Probably wouldn't watch it again but that might be because of the grim topic of the film. 7/10.
BreathinHeathenPretty surprised it won best picture.

BreathinHeathenThe pacing and editing could have been done better as well. Also, it got kinda repetitive. Reporter finds a new lead, there's some form of problem preventing them from using new lead, they get passed it, the number of priests in the scandal gets higher, and repeat for two hours until the story breaks.

Just a random thought: I get the whole idea of a divine father figure, but why pick the shittiest and most abusive father in history?
Lilith666Honestly, I have no idea what Christians were thinking when they made this up. Or why they thought this was a good idea. I guess they were used to tyrannical overlording gods so they created another one assuming it was the only option, and then stuck on the part about him being a loving dad to make their cult more attractive.

rjnThere's a reason fundies use the scare tactics like Hell. It's not like it's a very attractive religion.
Jun 24 2016 10:38 AM
Lilith666Yes, and they figured this out so they tacked on god being a father to make him look more approachable. There's my guess.

This video pretty much sums up why I left Christianity: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZNsw0rG2Zuk
"If I get some actual work done, maybe I can read a book and watch a movie" *go back to looking at memes on Facebook*

Ha! Now I know the difference between hornets and paper wasps. I been killing off paper wasps all day around here.
OCD is really getting better everyday it seems.
rjnIt really does. Neither feed nor fight your fears and compulsions. Accept them and move on.

I was about to knock on a door today, but I decided to stop right before my hand hit to eavesdrop and progress the plot instead.
Deidrehaha wise choice :P

Had a mini vacation, thought things over. I'll make it through this mess. I will completely forgive roomie if she deconverts, but until then she's not welcome wherever I move. I plan to find the BEST PLACE EVER and recover there.
yuneaMini vacation = doing heavy work for my friend in her house and yard, shoveling dirt etc, and camping in a tent on her lawn. It was perfect to wear myself out physically in this time of stress, I'm much calmer now.

TraviGood deal yunea :) I'm glad you found a release. Hope things continue to improve!

Why am I arguing with a guy on YouTube who says he doesn't care if gay people die because they (in his mind) don't care about black men? Here I am wasting my time telling him we're all human and should care about everyone and the "what's in it for me" attitude gets us nowhere. Maybe someday I'll get to the point where I just stop trying to convince people before my head explodes.
Deidreyoutube comments are the worst. some are okay, but some are just so sophomoric. we value your opinions here. <3

ficinoAgreed. And I think there are more gay black men than is often acknowledged.
Jun 20 2016 05:10 AM
Lilith666Thanks D :)
This person apparently thinks "gay" and "black men" are mutually exclusive. Sigh. It's so hypocritical, thinking yourself oppressed and demanding justice for yourself while ignoring that other people have problems too. Social justice only works for him when it affects him, I guess.
