Re: Crap

Legit question-- do teachers in UT drink coffee at school? I guess a lot of the teachers are Mormon, so maybe that's not really part of the culture. I can't say what the general consensus as far as coffee drinking at school in UT would be, and my school-aged offspring wouldn't care or talk aboot it...

Re: Testimony Gathering Sister

My mental health would definitely require me to step out of that group. It's sad that some people really can't separate family from religion.

Re: Registered at Target and Amazon...

Red- As a 20yo Mormon bride, I want to say that I wish so much that I had really considered other options at that age. Seriously, I think you are giving your kids a fantastic gift even if it doesn't always feel that way in the view of Mormonism. My parents would say that they always told me I could ...

Legit question-- do teachers in UT drink coffee at school? I guess a lot of the teachers are Mormon, so maybe that's not really part of the culture.

Re: Church Volunteer Constraints

This is a huge part of the problem in areas of the church where I lived. It makes people resentful and irritated even when they aren't really able to identify those feelings. 100% do not miss the time suck that was the LDS church and trying to do my calling as well as everyone else's who didn't do t...

Re: Primary Teachers are Annoying

Before I left the Mormon church, a really heavy item on my self was related to this. It came from an internet board I used to frequent for Mormon moms some of them had left the church but stayed on the board. Anyways, one of the ex-mos told everyone to imagine these same scenarios playing out with a...

What does FT mean?
Yes, FT is full-time. PT is part-time.

I think it's kind of interesting that was an unfamilar abbreviation to you because I assure you that it is commonly used in women's groups when discussing their jobs and life.

Re: Sexism of exmormon men

A large part of my experiences in discussing leaving Mormonism on the internet with males has felt like my opinion was invalid because they see me as not having had a seat at the table that I was banned from sitting at in the first place. Reddit exmo is rotten for understanding the experiences of wo...

Re: What are you doing to protect your family against the virus?

Sister Ryder and I both tested positive earlier this week. So far fairly mild and manageable. The biggest worry is wondering if this is the worst of it or if this coming week will get worse. The weird headache has me up at night. Not having to sweat through polyester polygamy panties has been comfo...

Re: What are you doing to protect your family against the virus?

After working all year in healthcare, I ended up having a positive covid test the day after I scheduled my vaccine appointment. 2020 irony for sure. I'm doing just fine, and I've had a very mild case overall. The timing was fortunate as it was easy for my kids to quarantine/the older ones were alrea...

Cheers, NOM. We've almost made it through 2020. That definitely calls for a celebratory beverage of your choice.

Re: To share your doubts with your children or not, that is the question

One of the things that I'm most grateful for in life is that I managed to get out of Mormonism before it had also trapped my kids. I definitely told them about it when I left the church, and I'd answer any questions they have at any time now.

Re: #givethanks

I was a little excited to see some people who rarely post on FB post there today, and then I was just sad. So much performative behavior. This is the kind of nonsense that would have irritated me even when I was a Mormon.

Wait. Is there no mask mandate in AZ? This is so irresponsible either way.

Re: What are you doing to protect your family against the virus?

In my state (not UT), the governor explicitly stated that the rules do not apply to religious gatherings. I mean, I didn't know that viruses made exceptions like that, but what the heck do I know. Also, what grade do they teach you that your nose and mouth are connected? I mean, a lot of people need...

Re: What are you doing to protect your family against the virus?

The other people who share my office tested positive today. I tested negative and do not have any symptoms, but I now get to be tested daily until I'm past my window or have covid, so that's fun.

2020 is the worst.

I'm just so frustrated by what this year has shown me about a frighteningly large number of my fellow humans. Amen. I was totally unprepared for the selfishness, bigotry, and general nastiness. And, I guess, naively optimistic about the degree that people actually care for others, especially many w...
