Oh my goodness this thread is hilarious! Here’s hoping she posts an ultrasound photo next.

@TexasSpringBride:  

 

Hi, I see you say she posts pics of aborted babies. I would just like to step in here and say that a lot of people in the prolife movement try to bring about awareness by showing people these pics. However, it is not usually in an “in your face” or aggressive way. These pictures are just so heartbreaking and they should be used in a respectful and sensitive way. So maybe the way she goes about it does more harm than good but that should not affect your view of the prolife movement as a whole.

 

I just say this because, just because your aunt is doing it, does not mean it can be called crazy or irrational behaviour. Sorry for the thread jack.

@LadyBunnylot:  No, but i think the rest of all this could. So taking out the aborted babies pictures, she still gets +1 for psyco

@LadyBunnylot: Somehow I get the feeling that she doesn’t just use quietly post them. She most likely has really rude comments damning people that do choose abortions. She damned the OP, her niece, just for voting.

What I’m most interested in is the family reactions to this post!!

@Chrysoberyl:  Yip, that’s why I said the way she goes about it is probably doing more harm than good… as in, she’s not sensitive but, rather, offensive.

@TexasSpringBride:  I’m really sorry for this situation… but I have to say, I have had the WORST morning, and I read every single post on this thread and laughed so hard. I agree with some of the PPs that your aunt sounds like she has some type of personality disorder (borderline PD or narcisstic PD), and she sounds very much like a family member of mine.

I know a lot of people told you to just ignore it, but I agree with you that she crossed a line especially where other relatives are concerned. I’m glad you called her on it. It won’t “fix” anything, but neither will everyone enabling her by just letting her get away with this bullshit.

@TexasSpringBride:  Yeah, I understand that. I don’t use fb, btw. And I wouldn’t show those pics to a child. I just didn’t want the term “crazy” generalised to everyone who is prolife because of what your aunt did.

Wow she keeps getting crazier! If I were you OP I would contact your uncle who is ill and tell him the truth so he doesn’t spend time or money going to visit her especially after the rough year he’s had. I’m sure he’ll appreciate you looking out for him.

@TexasSpringBride:  if she really got engaged to herself thats just bat shit crazy and if she’s willing to go to such lengths to be a turd like that I would just put her on blast. In a cute way of course 😉 I would simply say “congrats! so when do we meet the lucky guy?! there is a lucky guy isn’t there? oh wait….. ” . Im quite the jerk that way though if it’s deserved and doing what she did was just petty and mean. I honestly don’t fully believe in stealing thunder and if she really ahd gotten engaged I would say just be happy for her, but this? it’s not that. Its a deliberate jab at you and its simply insane.

@TexasSpringBride:  ok nevermind, just read the rest of the posts and your updates… you can’t fix that kind of crazy. Let her be crazy, lies never win and she’s going to be so humiliated when the truth comes out. And it will find its way out. Just pop some popcorn and watch! I do think you did right though by trying to inform sick relatives not to travel and telling her son. she is really kind of scaring me a bit with her level of crazy. it’s just seriously unhealthy.

You can’t fix this kind of crazy. Once they decide to tell an elaborate lie like this they go on and on and will get to the point where it’s almost like they truly believe it themselves.

My ex once did this about a credit card he got behind my back. I had an ACTUAL BILL that I found in his car with his name and our address….he STILL DENIED IT! Changed his story multiple times over the next month and a half until I stopped asking. I gave up trying to get him to admit it because even though I had proof he still told me that he had no idea what I was talking about!

Counsellors said he was borderline personality disorder/sociopathic…you can’t fix it and most counsellors/pyschologists won’t even try! (Although telling other people and getting some validation from them is a good thing)
