Spied this over at unhobbityhobbit's journal, and thought "Why not?"

The funny thing about the "Psychodrama" questions is that virtually all of them involved things I both avoid and fear like the plague. ;)

I rarely post about really troubling personal things (kind of a 'silent sufferer' in RL too, though), and am basically not the s**t-storm-creating type. There are times when I do post some heavy opinions, which, as far as I can tell, lead to actual discussions with people instead of shouting and "OMG— defrendz." I always come out of one of those discussion considering new ideas and viewpoints, so all to the good, I say!

But mostly I resist wankish stuff. Though I've been fighting the urge to do a post on the House, M.D. episode that involved Orthodox Judaism and had several aspects that bugged me. Might still do it yet...

...house did an episode with orthodox jews? really? did the good doctor run up against a particularly observant patient? because if so? cool!

He did, but she was a recent convert and a modern woman, and while I'll admit that I don't at all understand WHY a woman would convert to a religion that so limits women and their roles (my opinion, and this isn't the only religion that falls in this category)... House decided that she must be delusional. Which would be more offensive if, you know, it wasn't House (who is an ASS, and has stupid ideas like that at times).

But there were some parts that bugged. Not understanding Orthodox vs. Hassidic, inattention to details from what I know of Orthodox Judaism and how it's typically practiced, etc.

Enough to bug me, but since my "knowledge" of all this is acquired through observation and talking to those who DO practice it, I'm not really a great source on that.

Hence, I've avoided wading into it thus far. But every time I think about it I start to get ramped up again! :0

when i was growing up my parents were friends with a couple, the wife of which was a convert. she was really involved in the synagogue. but the family wasn't orthodox.

house is probably the only person who could get away with calling that woman delusional, just because he's offensive to everyone. i kinda want to see the episode now, partly because i'm curious what they got right and what they didn't....

I'm just amazed that you took THAT much time to take that quiz. I saw how many questions were in "community" alone and just said, "eh, I don't really care that much." ;)

I was kind of horrified when I saw that there were a bunch more sections! But some of them went pretty fast. For instance, I only checked three things in the Psychodrama section although there were at least 25-30 possible boxes. :0

Fortunately, I read fast. ;)
