I tried to watch to the "Montel" show with my "other family" this afternoon. After about 10 seconds all eye were on me. I told them about... it. They have been very supportive, but I know that I am "diferent". I don't mind people knowing about what happened. But was suprised that the subject being dicused by "norms" was so distastful to me. And I didn't like it being exploited for entertainment.

So I just came here to vent.

bye for now.

Brian.

It's called day-time TV - to be avoided at all costs

I do not see this show, so I think I do not understand this clear. It would seem the show is of something with sexual abuse. But I do not know of what you say is 'norm', you say that the show says some of this is normal? Pardon, I am just some confused, from not knowing of this show. I am sorry it upsets you, but I think it good you tell these people about, well, 'it'.
