I'm glad they were able to break free, these girls did an amazing job of crossing the bridge from a fixed lifestyle like FLDS to the real world where they're free but need to provide fully for themselves suddenly.

Did everyone see how rotten those kids teeth were. Instead of fucking five wives take your hundred kids to the dentist . I just don’t understand how they get away with this where’s child protection service at ? This is USA not some third world country . I’m so pissed off omg

Anyone else notice that the little girls teeth were rotting

The men of this cult weren’t putting women down to show superiority. They were doing it out of fear of being rivaled. Look at these women now, thriving, no longer just surviving, and blossoming into their own unique ways

The only thing the FLDS does right is to encourage their girls to get married and have kids. They should be in a monogamous relationship, not these foul multiple wife things.

If it wasn’t for the molestation and child labor I wouldn’t mind being different from America, let’s remember there is still child molestation out here and kids are murdering kids at school. So the structure I can appreciate.

I feel so bad for the children, that's the only way they grew up a story were brainwashed since they could remember. It must be hard for them to break off from where they came from.

This is why child-labor laws where installed. Children used to work in factors where they lost limbs and their lives, the same goes here because children should not use construction tools because they could easily maim and severely harm themselves (also other reasons like over-exhaustion, heat-strokes, health problems, etc..)

Ok so don't contract with the flds anymore, IF YOU DO YOU SUPPORT CHILD LABOR. You will be exposed, your life, your business will be in ruins. You are in the US, this is not fucking china. You will be fucked. So don't do it.

Yeah nothing says a loving good home like slave labor and forced marriage. Like it's one thing when it was a hundred fifty years ago and Little Billy going to work in a factory was the only way you could feed your family that they talked about this being efficient vial people

Have they not heard of child labor laws? Getting married way to young. Being raised to only be a plural wife that is a yes man and being raised to only accomplish being a mother. You see things like this and you wonder why these people don’t think polygamy should be illegal. I get not all polygamy is like this and I believe you should live your life how you want even if it includes being a big family with plural wives, but most polygamy families are full of criminal acts and injustices. Good for these girls on taking control of their lives. Strong and brave women and girls. 💗

how horrible! So glad I am from the church of jesus christ of latter day saints and not FLDS. I picked my husband, and married him after dating for a few years ( married 1 year so far, happily still). I have only 1 Mother 1 Father, they are equals to one another. They consulted one another on decisions. My husband is equals to me as well and If anything my husband puts me on a throne in his mind and adores me and values my opinions so much, even over his own. I remember at 7 I had a childhood, went through school,and only did chores like any other child, never free labor like these poor kids forced to do. I could wear whatever I wanted and I can have whatever style of hair I want. My parents loved me and encouraged me to play, imagine, have fun, learn , grow, and pursue any career I wanted and helped me with education towards my goals. I have lived such a different life from what these girls were forced to live in fear and servitude, they were practically slaves. I hope they can all escape who want to.

Even mainstream Mormons will walk up to attractive Mormon girls because they “have the priest hood” and say God told me we should get married and we should start courting. Or try to covert a pretty girl. A lot of very plain male missionaries have met their very young attractive future female brides in foreign countries. I watched 2 on the show 90 day fiancé. One girl was stunning and he met her when she was still a child then came back and married her when she was about 18. I think he was in his early 30’s. The other married a attractive Russian girl, who felt bad because she used to like to dance and drink. Her parents were not Mormon. Both men were very immature. The older guy was creepy. The younger guy had his parents dictating their lives. I cold see him controlling & manipulating her. I felt bad for both girls. The one with the older guy had no romantic experience and came from a very traditional protected Spanish background. This happens to in other fundamentalist type Christian sects. I had a cult come on my college campus insulting everyone which was surprising because we had a large Christian, especially Baptist student population. I had a very attractive younger guy out of the group try to apologize making excuses for his cult members, try to convince me I could speak in tongues. And it was clear he was interested in me. I started talking like I did to my dogs, in silly baby like talk. Just gibberish. When I laughed and admitted I talked to my animals like this, he said: “ Praise God he has given you the ability to communicate with animals!” I was just dumbfounded. He tried very hard to win me over but I have never feel interested in joining cults. I also had a guy that used to come & sit with me at lunch and one day mention we should move out of state and get married and get another wife I laughed and laughed because I had never even been on a date with the guy. I just said wrong girl! And never saw him again. Later I saw a girl with the cult guy sitting with her, that was not very experienced with going on any dates, to put it nicely. She was taken with him. He was preaching at her but he was still looking over at me. I just avoided him and felt bad for her because she was clearly attracted to him. I would have said something to her but I did not want her to be embarrassed as she was very shy and I did not know her that well. Later I realized I should have said something. I think he would was drawing her in, but I think he was holding out for someone else more attractive, if they would have him and agree to join the cult. They were hard core and the woman member like to yell out whores to the females walking on campus, especially if you were in gymnastics and in your leotards even though it was cold and people had their full coats over their leotards. I am glad these girls got out. How can we be ok with cults when we know they hurt children and the most vulnerable who are the females, the elderly, and the minor boys that they kick out because the older deviant men see them as competition. It is wrong in every way. A lot of babies die at birth and young girls are babies having babies. He elderly are neglected too. The young minor female’s bodies are not even through developing and this can lead to dangerous complications resulting in their death as well as the death of a child they may try to carry. They literally have their bodies torn apart trying to deliver a child when they are too young to be having a child. It is torture and so cruel.

It would be sad for someone to let others dictate their actions by convincing them cutting their hair means they're free, or people someone else doesnt want them to, rather than what they want for themself. Its letting people control you with reverse psychology.

why do they all have such bad skin?
Corinne Kinzinger (21 days ago)
Also, if they are using homemade soap it is really harsh which, ironically, makes the skin produce more oils to combat the chemicals (like lie) and make you vreakwe
piper lynnton (21 days ago)
honestly, skin is almost completely based on genetics. but of course, stress, hormones, and SOMETIMES diet can contribute

Polygamy (having multiple wives) isn’t my place to say it’s without a doubt, “Wrong”. BUT, the confined, forced, abusive lifestyle and the hideous misogyny that some plural families subscribe to, IS wrong. Why isn’t the government overseeing this and stopping this slave-labor shit either?

To be fair, this fundamentalist cult was rejected by, and is not the same as the regular morman. church. Still, I used to be in the church, and I left as I realized their beliefs are strange and not based in reality, and it's very patriarchal.

Frida Andersson the church hides whatever it can, they are very secretive and it’s hard to figure out the abuse until people escape.
