My Thoughts on Plathville – Season 3 episode 1 & 2

TW – Plathville and apparent parental neglect

Just finished listening to the first podcast on Plathville and I appreciate you mentioning that there was another podcaster Kate Casey who interviewed them both.

I found it so insightful and so so sad because there’s always someone who is gonna be hurt whatever they do…

One thing that did jump out at me was that they mentioned that Kim – the mum – doesn’t do any housework and the kids pretty much do everything themselves. I think the phrase they used was “we brought ourselves and our siblings up on our own”.

Then I watched the second episode and this little clip just broke my heart. You can see the mum playing a harp while her daughters are hoovering and washing up and doing all the housework. And Lydia is praying. In the closet. This little clip of 27 seconds summed it up for me.

I know she’s trying to portray herself as a good mother who is totally devoted to her kids. Yet Ethan said that it was his dad who was available to them as kids and she never was. So many things make sense now.

As a survivor of a religious cult I always find these episodes triggering. However when I see how the older children are able to leave and move away from that brainwashed mentality it makes me genuinely happy for them.

Obviously I don’t know what happens with Ethan and Olivia but wow… how sad does Ethan look all the time…. I wonder if it’s depression and or something else going on? Heartbreaking to see such pain and despair in his eyes…

Anyone else understand what I mean or is it just me who sees these things??

“Free Palestine” London Protest 11 May 2021

Protests today in London’s Downing Street for the plight of the Palestinians. The atmosphere was one of united strength, a desire for change and passionate discussions and speeches.

No one was hurt and the police handled it all pretty well. There were a couple of times they shouted at the protestors not to be too close to them, and obviously they immediately moved.

And just to clarify, I can criticise the Israeli Government and what they are doing without being labelled an antisemite and a Nazi. I have not said anything about Jews. This isn’t about the Jewish Community. It’s about the radical right wing Zionists. It’s a very different thing. You can look at my last few posts and see that I have a balanced perspective.

Regardless of your opinion and where you stand on this issue I would ask you to stop sending me dm’s with hate, threats, voice notes, and your thoughts on why I’m wrong. You’re entitled to your own opinion, just as I am. I will continue ignoring them all and blocking those that overstep the mark.

Family Unfairly Targeted By Flight Attendant For Allegedly Not Complying With FaceMask Rules

I saw this last night and was disgusted at the way this family were treated by this particular flight attendant.

For context, there is a mum and dad, a 2 year old baby, a special needs boy who has seizures, and the mother is pregnant too.

For the flight attendant to single them out because the 2 year old wasn’t wearing a mask (she was eating which means she didn’t need to legally wear one at that point anyway), is ridiculous and incredibly humiliating.

I was so happy to see the way the other passengers supported them and the way they did all they could to make sure they wouldn’t be removed from the plane. The attendant even threatened to call the police on them!

From what I’ve seen on social media it seems they told all the passengers to leave the plane and it was the flight attendant who ended up being marched away by the police!

I was glad to see the family back on the plane heading home. There’s no doubt in my mind they were unfairly targeted and expected them to simply leave the aircraft. The father was not having it and made it clear to everyone what was going on and why.

From my years working with children with special needs I cannot imagine how tough it must have been to have the little boy go through all the waiting, walking, boarding, etc, until he finally sat on the plane.

And then as the parents breathe a sigh of relief they’ve finally made it and would be home soon, they get harassed like this.

The support they got from everyone on the plane was a reminder that there are many good people who are not going to stand by and watch an injustice like this happen in front of them.

Difficult to watch but ultimately heartwarming 💚

“Masks Cause Cancer” Say These Women 🤷🏻‍♀️🙈😂

Pair of anti-maskers in Missouri harass a worker saying “masks cause cancer” and refuse to leave until they’re confronted.

Everyone is entitled to have their own ideas or conspiracy theories. However you cannot push them onto someone like this and when they turn around one woman becomes physical.

To clarify – there’s absolutely no data or proof to back up their idea that “masks cause cancer”.

“Smile for the camera”!!! Love that ♥️
