More than you can handle.

Suffering

Did you think about this for even a moment?

The absurd idea that God would never give you more than you can handle gives undeserved flattery to the well and acts as a cruel bludgeon to the ill. If God never gives a person more than they can handle, if they ultimately can’t handle it, it must therefore be their failure. People, including children, die from horrible diseases or from murder every day. I shudder to think how many children abused by the Catholic clergy were told this when they began suffering the inevitable, and sometimes fatal, psychological sequelae of abuse.

There is no magical ghost keeping your problems at a manageable level. Some day, you will learn that – unless you die suddenly and lose consciousness before you have the chance to realize your error. If you can handle your problems, that’s fantastic. But it just means you are lucky. The second you use that luck as an excuse to purport to know that my problems are surmountable, you cross the line from benign to malignant arrogance and blase disregard for reality. I can only say: that’s where you’re wrong.

About Yakamoz

What do other people have to say? "I think Yakamoz is a case study in bad behavior. She has tried to bully, threaten, and otherwise coerce people to concede her position. Even if it's for a good reason, her behavior has been egregious. People, especially men, have been sympathetic with her position. In return, she has not expressed any gratitude for men listening and supporting her, and taken a hostile tone to any man--and only men--that disagree with her in the slightest way. They've been trying to show they care, she's been trying to show she doesn't. And you know what? It has poisoned the discussion. I'm sure men are scared to speak, less they feel the wrath of hurricane Yakamoz, and I doubt any women feel the same because of her behavior."
