United States of Tara “Board Meeting” Represents the Mind of Dissociation?

United States of Tara

I found this YouTube video that posted on Mar 3, 2012. This individual states that it not only represents what he/she experiences in their head, but he/she found relief after viewing this film clip from the TV Series, The United States of Tara.

    I think that poster sums up the implicit sexism of the DID diagnosis — the Madonna / whore complex. There’s a 50s housewife and a teenage tramp. The adult females are sexless, the underage “alters” highly sexualized. Only the very shallowest and most stereotypical aspects of femininity are represented.

    I can’t believe feminists endorsed this garbage. They really betrayed their cause in the 1990s by endorsing this crap, which destroys women and enriches male doctors.

    Alters are always little girls or nuns. It’s ALWAYS, “one alter is a baby, one is a prostitute, one is a prude.” It is NEVER, “one is a crossword puzzle aficionado, one is an engineer, one is a teacher.”

    As producer, The United States of Tara might prove to be Stephen Spielbergs most significant work.

    Forget ET, Schindler’s List, Jaws, Saving Private Ryan, Jurassic Park and Raiders of the Lost Ark. None of those productions actually changed society.

    Whilst ‘The United States of Tara’ might prove to be his most significant work – the one that historians of the future might be able to point-to and say, this is where Spielberg made his most significant contribution to US society; by helping start-up another round of MPD obsessions amongst American white middle-class women.

    I imagine Diana Napolis was a big fan of ‘Tara. Probably has the DVD box set.


    • Hi Avalon111 I didn’t look at “Tara” in that manner but I wouldn’t be surprised if you are right. Many in the MPD/DID community think it’s helped them to have something to identify with – others are just as adamant that is does Not portray multiplicity in a positive or accurate manner.

      Even Richard Kluft, MD one of it’s consultants was quoted as saying it was for entertainment value. Shameful motivation. Although money surely had much to do with him getting on board.
