    Apparently Showtime doesn’t want to know the REAL facts about DID, and what a person who has DID struggles with on an hourly basis. I feel insulted to have received an obvious “form email letter” in response to my heartfelt email to Showtime. What I saw in the first episode, is that Mr. Spielberg is using “sex, sex, and more sex”, to sell a series.
    At least with the massive number of anti-Tara emails that Showtime obviously has received from DID sufferers, they have included an “informative” video from Dr. Kluft; however, even in his short documentary, he did not address the magnitude of the horrific childhood sexual abuse that causes Dissociative Identity Disorder. The so called “consultant” that the writer, Diablo Cody is conferring with, had DDNOS, not DID. Apples and oranges… sigh.
    Imagine for a moment, if you can: A new Showtime series called, “The Deformed State of Tara” – a COMEDY about a girl who confronts comedic situations in her every day life revolving around her dealing with her inability to climb stairs, her sexual encounters, and her comedic experiences with people staring at her scarred and deformed face and arms. (As a child, her parents had physically abused her so intensely, that her repeatedly broken bones resulted in a leg amputation, and the repeated burns the parents inflicted on her arms and face resulted in grotesque scarring which made her face appear as almost inhuman.)
    This scenario is NO DIFFERENT than creating a “COMEDY” about a person who suffers from a disorder caused by repeated, early childhood RAPE AND INCEST. One might say that the results of childhood physical abuse are apparent to outsiders, but the results of childhood sexual abuse resulting in Dissociative Identity Disorder are also readily apparent to others in public. Raping young children is NOT comedic.
    Does this life seem like a comedy?
