Is it strange that while Hats sleeps, we watch episodes of United States of Tara?
We’re still on the first season, although almost done, I think. At first, it was triggering (like what isn’t these days?) and even L made a brief panicked appearance (not so good), but it’s all really kind of interesting.
Right now I can’t find a more appropriate and fitting word. We are who we are, but it’s interesting to see how Diablo Cody and co. are portraying a woman with alters. Maybe she has some real life experience with DID herself, but considering what we’ve seen of the show so far, it’s a little textbook if you ask me.
We’ve been curious about it since it came out, even though the official Dx wasn’t made for a year later. It probably doesn’t hurt that we love Toni Collette and adore John Corbett. And I guess we also want an idea of what people may have “learned” from watching the series so we can understand why they react a certain way when/if they find out about us.
Is it sad that we have to worry about this kind of thing? Media subjecting DID into the spotlight with a slightly skewed and sometimes overly dramatic lens? It is entertainment after all.
Jaime wondered the other day if we might have the highest concentration of multiplicity under one roof in the area. Statistically, I wouldn’t be surprised, but I suppose it depends on the area.
It’s probably hilariously ironic though – a bunch of multiples watching a show about a bunch of multiples.
