When I started this blog, I never imagined I would hear from chumps around the world. Heck, in the early days, I didn’t realize the insanity went much past my own cheater, let alone across continents of fuckwits worldwide.
Turns out, chumpdom is a common condition. People have written to ask if they could translate articles into Serbo-Croation, or Afrikaans, or Spanish. Apparently, the Reconciliation Industrial Complex is alive and well and divorce shame and less-than-stellar infidelity advice abounds everywhere.
Today I’m happy to report the Chump Revolution is going global. A few months ago, I got an amazing offer to come speak in Australia by Zhuchi, an outfit that does seminars for mental health providers. Talk to the RIC in Oz? HELL YEAH!
I’ll be in Newcastle, Australia on May 25 — and I hope if you’re anywhere around (and heck even if you aren’t!) you’ll come join us. You don’t have to be a therapist — consider it a chump consortium! Chump studies! Chumpapalooza 2.0! It’s going to be me snarking live, unpacking the chump experience, and debunking the RIC. Maybe I’ll wrestle some crocodiles. (It’s Australia, that’s de rigour, right?)
I hope you’ll come. Please reward this kind lady Liz who has made such a generous offer to transport me to the other side of the world to speak. And check out Newcastle! It looks like paradise-by-the-sea. We can hang out! Slather sunblock on each other! Eat vegemite sandwiches! …. and….
CHANGE THE NARRATIVE!
Details on the Chump World Takeover are here. Spread the word! Thanks!
And check out these pictures of Newcastle! Pretty, huh?
