Sorry guys here is my mini-rant-
I am just going to say it. I feel distressed for the ladies that are the most vulnerable within the TCC/DCC environment. I never thought they would go this far. The DCC world inner circle may be tiny. But the extended world goes way past to include people you would not necessarily think of.
TPTB and motley crew. To go as far as trying to discredit those who speak out on what they are witnessing as wrong. To make it a campaign to silence those who are suffering under such a toxic, favoritism geared rule, is sickening. Leadership and staff often stop even seeing it for what it is. It's their normal, I guess.
Knowing that there is an expectation communicated to "support your teammates and protect each other from bullies", under the guise of social media education, but really meant to caudle VicSidious upsets me. I don't hate the girl and have no motivation to make her life difficult. But it appears there is zero awareness of how she makes others lives hard. TPTB only amplify that. It's actually not fair to VK. That is NOT the story we will get in Aug. We will hear how she overcame negative attention through the support of her teammates who love her, kinda thing.
In the beginning, I had hoped she would be gracious towards others. Or at least fake it better. Every excuse in the world is being given to her. Oh and expect a major spin for the show. I had said Kelly was defiantly protecting and "showing" off VK. For me, it is not as much as whether there is talent present. Clearly, there is, but I could care less in some respects. It's the behaviors I can't stomach.
I have had to help large health care corporations "re-educate leadership" when the sense of reality is so contrary to the facts, that turnover became a major financial loss. It never failed to amaze me how intentionally blind over-indulged leadership can become. It is not something that happens overnight. Whole boards have been removed because they end up reinforcing eachthers false realities. And I end up looking at the faces of 18 executives baffled as to why a 2nd nursing strike has happened. This DCC summer is like that to me.
Just imagine being in camp, hearing all the specially crafted wording on "protecting, shielding, and wouldn't you want the same if it were you" speeches. Dealing with personalities who can cry and manipulate those around by "being hurt"..., or imagine watching a forever growing list of people mentor someone who already has an automatic in while you struggle and are under secret gag orders or be banished, type of emotional environment.
They really have gone too far if hardcore persecution is what you face if caught speaking in any manner other than what you are expected to parrot and/or makes the DCC appear as a demiGod. As I listen to people it reminds me of brainwashing. Isolate young girls in intensive hours of evaluation, barely time to breathe and it won't be until they exit that abusive relationship that they realize too much was sacrificed at points. (Not everyone has the same experience, obviously). But I worry. It is the minority of girls that leave having had a great total experience? Some have it all while a DCC, most do not, or it appears to be something along those lines. Has it always been this way? Did I really miss it during the former years?
okay working on 2 hours sleep, so this may read funny to me in the AM.
