@Christin so while the “history & overview” section is helpful academically to provide clarity for those who both can and cannot relate to this kind of upbringing, I can ONLY recommend the “my story” section IF you have already undergone a significant level of healing and feel safe and confident hearing *explicit anecdotes of personal trauma that may/may not remind you of your own trauma. Phew. 2/2

@Christin EDIT: ok so I had to return here to correct my initial recommendation - the second section titled “my story” is potentially VERY retraumatizing *if you experienced any number of traumatic teachings/actions under evangelical xtianity (e.g. rapture anxiety, corporal punishment, etc), 1/2

@Christin fellow 9 here 💚 starting to suspect I’m an 8 wing tho it keeps swinging back and forth from 1? Not sure but I’m feeling 9w8 this month haha

@Christin so far, the book is extremely levelheaded, academic even. I’ve only finished the first section “history and overview” but that alone is so so helpful in forming the absolute most basic understanding of the history of American fundamentalist xtianity and the root of the lies it perpetuates. Highly recommend, unqualified. I do not believe it will retraumatize you but inform your healing process. I’m here if you decide to explore it or want a friend with whom to discuss. 💜

Hey everybody so instagram deleted Jamie Lee Finch’s account bc she was reported so much for sharing the cover of her new book, which features the body of a woman (GASP). Nipples not even exposed (regardless of that bullshit policy). If you’re on other social media would you join me in raising a damn stink to IG about this instafuckery?

@PaladinQuinn was it too long ago for you to find it and cite the writer?? They deserve credit for this work of genius lol

@PaladinQuinn whooaa... amazeballs. Did you write this? If not can you cite original source?

My god is decolonial. My god stands with the oppressed and advocates for the downtrodden. My god sits with the impoverished. My god is a vast and glorious embodiment of love in its most radical forms- intimate with pain and antithetical to hatred.

@WolfDreamer reading his “The Book” ~5 years ago (recommended by Maria Popova of Brain Pickings) was the catalyst for an entire perspective overhaul for me. I’m just realizing now that book was probably what began a more active deconstruction process of my faith after years of stagnation/apathy/depression. His work probably saved my life. I am (slowly) going thru his collected letters now. What’s this book like?

@drew @Birdie oh cool, I’ll have to listen! All my advice questions are suuuper heavy lol so I’ll have to get a feel of your vibe before I submit haha

@AlexTheGirl cute! Looks good to me. It really does take practice tho, it’s quite a skill. Get pumped to practice it’s so fun 💜

@joeld love that. I think gratitude is so important to express, especially for our food, for the earth, the plants, animals if relevant, and for the many people who worked to tend/care then get it to us. We do ourselves a disservice when we are not mindful of these things.

did you name abuser? 

@Leah oh wow. That must require such courage. I’m “with” you on your path to healing. 💜

did you name abuser? 

Also I FULLY support you if you choose to name. I know I don’t know you but I have my own names (don’t we all??). I will have your back. Keep me posted? @Leah

@khanagan ughh so jealous. I also really love the boygenius collab bc of the levity they bring to her rawness

did you name abuser? 

@Leah oh my dear precious (stranger) friend... I have no advice, I’m sorry, but I’m with you tonight in your pain and healing. You are so strong. You are whole. Feel it. 🙏🏻💜

@khanagan yeah she’s my pastor tonight, not even being flippant. Love her.

Whooaa so today was exhausting in ALL the ways. Currently taking solace in Julien Baker and lemon seltzer, + nothing. It’s bleak.
