I looked through her Tiktok, she says she's Jewish but also her parents are Evangelical Christians. So I guess she converted to Judaism? But she also doesn't like religion and is not religious.

Went from straight to lesbian to aro/ace pansexual nonbinary queer. Always uses words like "became" and "labels" when talking about sexual orientation, so probably just a weird straight girl.

She has three eating disorders.

Diagnosed with 5 mental disorders

Everyone in her family hates her (supposedly)

Has ADHD, abuses her ADHD medication, takes all four of them at once which can fuck you up.

She kins Hannibal Lecter. Has a fixation on him killing and mutilating his victims. Her friends have asked her to calm down on the Hannibal obsession.

Said she was homophobic before

She gets into fights with everyone.

Idk how old she is, but I feel bad for her putting her cringy phase online for everyone to see. Hope she gets some actual help someday.

Hey, I’m a lady who was raised as a Christian and is in the process of converting to Judaism. One thing I’ve noticed is that most people who this path are either people with very sincere beliefs or are marrying a Jew. It’s made a little more complicated by Judaism being both a religion and a people. Once you convert, you are considered Jewish both religiously and culturally. If you decide the religion part isn’t for you down the road, you’re still considered Jewish. (It should go without saying, but considering the entire history of pograms and the Holocaust, it’s an extra-serious decision you shouldn’t flippantly make unless you honestly intend to practice Judaism for the rest of your life.)

There are people who seem to be doing this for less genuine reasons though. I’ve come across people who seem to be into it because they want to belong to a religious community without actually believing in anything or changing their lives. (If someone is born into a Jewish family and grows up to be an atheist a lot of liberal congregations will still accept them. The line is fuzzier there because the history of persecution leaves people not wanting to turn away Jews by birth. Obviously, this is a very different scenario than people “converting” to have community with neither faith nor action.)

And then there are people who seem to be doing it because they think being Jewish is another tag they can add onto their bio and claim that they’re oppressed because of it. (Don’t even get me started about how utterly ridiculous it is for people who aren’t Jewish by birth to pretend we experience anti-Semitism outside of worrying about violence when we attend synagogue.) There’s no sincere interest or belief. It just the narcissistic label game with those people.

If I had to guess, she probably falls into the latter category and may or may not have actually converted. Or, maybe she just makes it all up as she goes. Anyways, sorry for the essay.

No worries. It was an interesting read. To my knowledge I don't have any Jewish ancestry, and I was raised by non-religious parents, I'm an ex-atheist but converted to Catholicism in 2017, so what I know about Judaism is from research and scripture. But being an outsider looking in isn't the same as being Jewish, so I didn't want to make any statements on her, other than that inconsistency. I'm not sure if she went through any process of conversion, but then again I am not looking through her entire Tiktok she has posted consistently for years (kind of impressive tbh). What I've seen was her saying she has Christian parents a family, so I guess she converted since I know that the Jewish lineage is passed on through the mother, but then she made videos on hating religion so 🤷‍♀️she made videos on Anti-Semitism, but in another she talks about making offensive Jewish jokes and then getting mad at her friends for laughing at them lol

You converted to Catholicism after growing up non-religious? That sounds like a really interesting journey.

This girl sounds like a train wreck.
