This is child abuse full stop. The incestuous nature of this post makes me sick.

I was wondering whether I was getting paranoid but it does have an incestuous nature, doesn't it?

Covert incest. When a parent uses a child to fulfil an adult emotional support role that should be filled by another adult; partner, friend, family or therapist.

But in this case, the incest is overt, not covert. The woman is saying out loud on social media that her 8 year-old daughter is her deceased husband and that the mother relies on the little girl for the sort of love, care, understanding, connection, support and practical assistance that adults customarily get - or hope to get from other adults who are partners, spouses or romantic love interests - or who are in the other types of roles you mention, or are hired helpers like home health aides, personal assistants and domestic servants.

Emotional incest isn't necessarily covert incest. In fact, the opposite is frequently the case. Emotional incest is often very blatant and public. Many abusers do it out in the open not just where others can - put so others can see. People who engage in emotional incest frequently flaunt these types of inappropriate relationships because they want others to witness and know what they are doing.

Exactly this.

Parentified the child with an overlay of incest.

If not literal, certainly emotionally incestuous. This is not a mother acting like a parent to a child.

SOMEONE SAVE THIS CHILD. What the actual fuck did I just read. I hope the kid is somehow re-homed to a kind relative or a kind family looking to adopt and is given proper empathy/care for all the bs from the mother. The mother is unbelievably cruel and creepy and frankly pedophilic.

I need a drink, my god.

8 year old son born female

is my huband

Is this... is this transhausen and incest rolled up into one. What the fuck is this

I know you can normally see a bit of the parents in the child but wtf is this


Talks about the devastation he felt when I died

Uh. Me thinks there's a fanfic narrative slip up there

Edit2: The more I think about this the more fucked up it is. So... what, her daughter just. Poof? Is this so-called husband soul completely inhabiting your daughter's body and why aren't "either" of you checking in on how she feels about this? You just... what, had a baby together so it could be a convenient vessel for your husband's soul when he died in the future?

The fuck is this? I'm seriously hoping this is fiction.

She doesn't mention the child's father or any current partner, she says the child was her husband in several past lives, i.e. back when she was Cleopatra the daughter was Antony, and when she was Marie Curie, the daughter was Pierre, and when she was Eleanor Roosevelt the daughter was FDR etc. That's why "he" remembers her dying.

This is definitely one of the weirdest and most disturbing tweets I've seen posted here. That poor child.

Holy shit you're right it doesn't even say that she lost her husband "in this life".

That just went one extra level of disturbing.

Jesus christ it's one of those fictionkin people

I never imagined one of those people actually breeding and making up fanfictions about their actual kid...what a nightmare.

Were people always this fucked or are we exposed more to the fucked up people that have always existed? I know it's a bit of an overdone cliche but getting fall of Rome vibes. A society that openly approves of child mutilation and incest is not doing well.

I think social media has enabled fucked up people to be open about their fucked upedness, and be affirmed and encouraged in it, share it, normalize it, and spread it. In the days before social media, where would a TIM go to find a group of women who would enable his pregnancy fetish? Where would parents who want support transing their kids find it? Kai Shappley's mother said she found an Evangelical moms' Facebook group for transing their kids. Before, people would keep their fetishes and bizarre beliefs to themselves. Social media created a judgment and consequence free forum where anyone can say the sickest, craziest shit and find an echo chamber normalizing it.

I think it feels like social media amplifies it, but sickos always found each other, long before social media existed. PIE and NAMBLA were around before the internet, cults have always found predators to join as well as victims. Throughout history there’s a never ending plethora of extremes that took hold because of how easy it is for predators to find their echo chamber. There are plenty of time periods where it was socially acceptable for predators to demonstrate their violence and depravity publicly.

None of that is new. I think people thought we were living in a more progressive, enlightened, liberated society. I think many people assumed many of the good fights had been won, that we’ve learned and moved forward, and most people will be good within a society that’s progressed this much. So it feels shocking that it’s gone this way. It feels like madness because people assume others think in fairly similar ways to them, they assume others are essentially decent and good because they are essentially decent and good. I think social media amplifies this illusion also. Props up what people want to see, illustrates the imagery people want to buy into. So when the realisation that people are not these good, decent people hits, the crash feels greater.

I know what you mean. Western culture seems to be malfunctioning. That or the internet has given the dysfunctional people much greater visibility and influence. Either way is bad but hopefully it's the latter as that's marginally less 'fall of Rome'.

I think it goes in waves.

People were always this fucked up. But often it’s socially acceptable to call these people out as the outliers who are either stupid (flat earthers), unwell (hearing ‘gods’ voice), dangerous (PIE), or desperate for the attention (abducted by aliens).

But sometimes the Overton window shifts so the status quo is the horror. (Nazi Germany, lobotomies etc).

I watched the lesson the other night. I knew about the third wave experiment vaguely, in the way I knew about the prison experiment or electric shock ones or similar- like I’d heard various bits growing up/seen references in media/read the odd article. But I didn’t know that much. At the end when they were talking about it one person said something like people will always see others as powerful or powerless, and will go to any lengths to be one of the powerful group, betray any value, cross all lines, to do anything to belong to the powerful group and not the powerless one. I think that stands out a lot in the right side of history slant that so many of the TRAs have, the ones who seem like they should be the reasonable ones- women, mothers, teachers, police, doctors, (some) politicians etc. They over ride everything they know to be true, every instinct, everyone that should matter to them, just because they fear being seen as being on the wrong side of history. They chase the need to feel powerful by being part of the right group, because belonging feels powerful, because blind certainty feels powerful.

Yes, the current climate does very much reek of fall of Rome vibes. I often say we are living in Caliguland.

I don't think it was a slip up. I caught that too, but when I re-read it, I understood it as they were a couple in a past life for both of them. Not that the kid was her husband in her current life.

I want to puke poor girl. The clock is ticking before the sexual abuse starts because "she's connecting to her husband" ugh.

Her child will look at her with some kind of expression or want to touch her and it will be "my karmic husband is returned to our bedplay once more" not "no honey that kind of touching makes mommy uncomfortable it's OK to touch yourself in private thought and when you get older other consenting adults"

This has been confirmed, not only by him... but also by 2 mediums

I curse the sick fucks who went along with this delusion

What in the fuck, how is that NOT mental illness and a case for CPS?

I was told by my mother that I was the reincarnation of my great grandmother (I was born 10 days after she died) from a very young age, and while this is just one of the ways my mother mistreated me, it was so harmful and left me feeling like I could never be my own person because I was actually someone else. I feel for this daughter, especially with the trans-ing. That's just a medical abuse cherry on top of the emotional abuse and incest enmeshment cake. This is so fucked up. No matter what you believe about reincarnation, anyone can see how damaging this is.

That such a strange thing to do to a child, I'm continually amazed at the bizarre crap parents say to kids (including my own parents, who were amazingly dysfunctional).

Soooo.... Several lives ago (?) this mother was another woman and the daughter was a man and the two were married. In this life, the mother is the mother and the daughter, very much like a Russian nesting doll, is a man, stuck inside a boy who in turn is stuck in a girl but the man on the inside totally calls the shot by being all husbandy?

I really and truly hope, that this is a weird joke. Alternatively, I hope this girl (and the mother) can get help.

Also, where is the father of the husband - son-daughter combo?

Social services need to be involved in this.

There are multiple layers of abuse involved here, and this child is not safe.
