Seven of Nine as a metaphor for leaving fundamentalism
September 25, 2017 6:37 AM   Subscribe

I'm looking for an essay I read a couple of years ago and my google is failing me. The author was a woman who left fundamentalist Christianity (possibly also homeschooled, possible spiritual abuse). She compared her journey to Seven of Nine's path from separated Borg to human, like getting seemingly basic cultural things embarrassingly wrong, obliviously hurting and angering people who had been harmed by the Borg/fundamentalist Christians, etc.

I've tried obvious combinations like 'seven of nine fundamentalism' but no luck. I hope it hasn't been taken down.

I think it is. The essay I'd reconstructed in my head was a bit more detailed in linking lived experiences with moments on the show, but I'm pretty sure this is it!
