Response to Bayard (Reply #15)

16. Thank You!

This is what I keep wondering about myself: why did I become such an independent thinker after growing up in such a terribly religious, misogynistic, authoritarian, rightwing family? I was subjected to the same conditioning as my two siblings. I think enduring the hardest pounding you referred to caused me to revolt. My pounding was downright child abuse.

I'm known as the black sheep and am slandered and shunned (except when they want to borrow big sums which will never again happen). Over the years their attitudes have alienated me to the point that I've lost most loyalty toward them.

There's one thing my siblings overcame: they are both vegetarian and I very much respect that! That and the fact they are most softhearted to animals. They adopt strays.

Anyway, thanks for your input, my friend.
