Obviously, there is a tremendous amount of controversy and upset among the survivor community about how Showtime has presented Dissociative Identity Disorder in United States of Tara series.
Thank you, everyone, for so many lively comments on the previous post about this topic. I think that’s excellent.
It is very good to speak up about your cause and let the world know how it really is. One way to combat the misinformation is to make sure the correct information is out there, available, and viewable for those that really don’t know.
Now I have some questions for you.
- If you were the writer of the Showtime series United States of Tara, and knowing Dissociative Identity Disorder as well as you do….
- In your opinion, how should the United States of Tara series end?
- What would you like to see?
- What would you have liked to teach about DID/MPD through this media opportunity?
I realize Toni Collette, Diablo Cody, and the other producers of the show are not likely to ask our opinion, but I’d still like to know.
AND, I think this public blog site can be a good place to express your opinion. Don’t be silent about this — let the world know what you think!
Remember how we re-wrote the Hole in My Sidewalk poem? If you were to tackle this project, how would you re-write the Tara show??
Mostly what I want to know…. If you were the senior creative writer of the series, what would you include, and how would you end the season?
All creative and playful comments welcome. 🙂
Let’s have some fun!!!
