trigger warning for anyone who goes in the dissociative identity disorder and/or trauma tags. someone has posted the start of their short story there, and have included a murder scene and a fairly graphic self-harm scene, and it’s not behind a read more. the story has a DID trigger warning at the top and that’s the only warning it has. stay safe.

I am just fucking amazed, daily, at the “multiple community” on tumblr. There was a time when we knew natural & DID systems and all things were spiffing and fucking beautiful. Well that has been assfucked with a pirahna on a cactus hasn’t it?

I am so fucking sick of everyone getting on their high…

Seriously everything was fine two weeks ago. Sure one or two complaints but man seriously. If you don’t like it here just go somewhere else. It’s that easy. I come here because my life is filled with horrible things that we have to cope with. I came here because people understand where I’m coming from. Seeing it like this makes me sad.

actually, it was happening a lot longer then just two weeks ago. it was about a month after jess started that the first hate message arrived i think, and jess has been on there since may. in the last three months there have been quite a few more. and then do you know what it’s like when you have nearly all of them come one after the other? jess is fucking broken again.

if it had just been the one, it would have been manageable for her. she would have said “sure, i can TW, listen if anyone has complaints tell me what you need cos i’m happy to try and do things differently to make it better for you”. but no. if you go look on LP, there’s an anon that admits to being one of the people to help chase jess out of LP. not help make her a better mod. not help her become someone who can more effectively answer the questions sent in. not help her understand what potentially damaging answer is and what’s not. and i can only think of two that might have been damaging, and in both cases she either invited people to write in or others just wrote in anyway. they might have been angry but they educated her and the person answering the question got a better answer then they would have got just from her. all that these hate and complaint messages do is make the divide between naturals and DID systems further. i can’t think of a single DID system we know that has any desire whatsoever to help bridge that after all the bullsh*t that’s happened on LP and some of the other posts floating around from natural systems.

Exactly this! They don’t even know Jess, but they made a point to go out of their way and attack her personally - as well as attacking her simply because she is a DID-multiple. Jess didn’t do ANYTHING on there that warranted personal attacks - even if some of her answers weren’t appropriate for natural systems. She could have ignored them and let one of the other mods answer but that would’ve caused another issue because all the DID ones would’ve been answered and the naturals left until whenever the other mods felt like coming back.

It’s not the first time a DID-mod has had to leave LP and I’m pretty interested to see what is going to happen now that the “safe space for all multiples” has no-one to speak from a DID point of view. Maybe the elitists are so up there in multiplicity they will be able to answer ALL THE THINGS.

Two weeks ago? No. Not really.

^truth. jess is far from the first DID multiple to be on there, and every.single.time. DID multiples on LP have left. and it’s a bit hard to have a space for all multiples when all the mods have experience with one type of plurality. jess couldn’t do anything about it, but wanted there to be at least one median on the blog too.

theonlytimes that jess’s replies weren’t useful for natural multiples was when it was someone asking questions about DID, such as the one that wrote in asking if a doctor could diagnose DID, AND THAT WAS TAGGED WITH DID AND DISSOCIATIVE IDENTITY DISORDER!

ugh, the more that i think about this, the angrier i get.

LP can go die in a hole.

well, you’ll find that our little’s message is simply a statement of an opinion, not made angrily or anything like that. probably one of the least drama-inducing ones in there.

I know. I just don’t want to continue the debate anymore.

i know what you’re talking about. except for us it’s a job and a baby, along with mental illness. and that’s the position we were in, only we had people writing in getting upset because we had DID and were posting on LP. not just because of DID in general, not just because of multiplicity, not even because of bias (because you’ll find nearly no posts where there’s a bias of information without there being a “but i don’t know much about this, so please write in if you do” from Jess). we got messages that just ended up being deleted from anons hating Jess for daring to be on LP when she has DID.

IMO, you’re better off turning LP into a safe place for multiples aimed at the natural ones. you’ve got no one with DID on staff, everyone i know with DID considers LP an unsafe space, and it’ll get the debate over with. people with DID can always go to The DID Ask Box or Dissociativity anyway. and at least there we don’t have to deal with all the hate from natural systems and natural systems don’t have to deal with all the fucking triggers from disordered systems.

and Akkashar - i can’t stand it when my littles are hurt and ignored. i’m a protector. not only that, we had someone write into LP when Jess was still on there getting angry at LC for stuff, and Jess stood up for LC. Jess gets hated on, and not a single staff member did a fucking thing.

i hate the blog, and i’m so glad that jess finally decided to give up on it. they’ve got some people there that are decent, but LC isn’t one of them.

just so you know, one of our littles wrote into LP last night. funny how you’ll post the angry opinions but not the polite, quiet opinion of a little.

Well then. :\

I didn’t mean to exclude your posts at all. There are quite a few asks sitting in the inbox right now and I haven’t had the time (And, to be completely honest, I’ve been a little scared and overwhelmed) to post anything.

I’m sorry.

If they want a naturals only space they can go create it and stop being elitist pricks. Excuse my anger - I seem to be cocon with someone who’s angry :P

Yippee, yet again, I’m being told I’m doing things wrong by anons.

Tell ya what. Go message one of the LP admins. Off anon. And ask to be added so that YOU can answer the asks too! How does that fucking well sound?

Oh, and apparently my BIL thinks…

i like this holiday idea a lot!

Huh? What exactly are you even doing wrong? Oo

Also, what is LP?

lp=living plural, a blog run by a bunch of systems. we’re the only DID system on there right now, the rest are natural systems. but we’re also pretty much the only people answering anything, and someone is upset at how many asks are being answered only by a DID system recently.

Yeah, we saw that. I did want to message and say be grateful *someone* is answering you dick. can’t do anything right around here. Sorry Jess :(

thanks. jess has been getting that so fucking much, and she’s nearly the only person answering a fucking thing now. plus, it’s not like lp is meant to be a natural plurals only space, it says it’s for all plurals.

and i’d bet just about anything that the message was referring to a couple of DID multiples that wrote in recently anyway.
