Oh yes, another forum dealing with Sex and the Cult

OK, OK—the picture from the cast of The Sex and City movie was there to get your attention—so if anyone thought I was promoting the new flick, sorry I’m not! By the way, me and Joe  will definately skip this movie when we hit the theatres Saturday night! By the way, my three to see movies right now would be Speed Racer, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull and definately Ironman! Great guy movies!

 

Now here’s what I want to really discuss: more message boards for  former W/XCG members! I say more choice, the better! This time this forum is of unique speciality. It will discuss how the sex-negative religious ideology of Armstrongism affected one’s life personally. Thanks again to I Survived Armstrongism’s AS—I told him it was about time. Former W/XCG members who were and are married seem(or seemed) insensitive or oblivious to those who grew up in Armstrongism or who were came in as single adults. Trust me, it was no picnic. I never seen such neurotic and fanatical people who wasted time, effort and energy  to make the underlings—or the bottom of the heap in the Armstrong cults—to be sexless—or to be blunt, violently deny their own sexuality which I believe is an evil in itself. In my mid-20’s, I had faced a deacon who enjoyed telling me, “Sex ain’t cracked up what it supposed to be!” Another manipulative tactic for celibacy counselling. Times like that I wish God Almighty IS Joe Pesci and He has steel baseball bat in the sky to get things done efficiently. Frankly, it is my wish sometime before year-end to have a blog post about the historic WCG and sex myself. It’s a topic that needs senstitivity in all areas but needs to be discussed. Right now, you have from AS a forum called herbversion.com at http://www.herbversion.com/. Please carefully read the rules and AS has some strict strong suggestions (actually he enforces) such as entering the forum under a pseudonym—one which you never used on other forums. It’s a good idea,  you might be spared from potential embrassment or conflict that you don’t need. Otherwise, log in, participate, shed a few tears, I’m sure you can make a few laughs, make a difference and of course, enjoy the show!

  1. Thanks FT. But another reason for that particular rule is that I really don’t want what is discussed on that forum coloring interactions elsewhere. I want it to be a “what happens on the forum stays on the forum” kind of thing unless people actually decide they want to talk about it offline – then they can PM each other and find out who they are. I have no problem with that.

    Revealing too much can be dangerous if it’s not handled in exactly the right way. There’s no such thing as true anonymity, but if everyone’s on an equal footing then there will be less holding back because of fear that someone will “find out”.

    While this has to be handled with sensitivity, I want to create an environment where the actual conversation doesn’t have to be handled with sensitivity.
