"It may be too late to turn them in for child abuse, but it's never too late to start looking for nursing homes for them (especially nursing homes with a bad reputation, which why parents should always be nice to their children). Of course,…"
"I agree. As much as I don't like to recommend the miltary because of the chance of going to war, in your case Astaroth, it may be your only way out, plus it would help you into college, and chicks dig miltary men. You were born into a cult. You…"
"Astaroth, The good new is you are 21 years old, you have a brain, and I assume a healthy body. You have yearnings that are normal, natural, and necessary to make the transition from boy to man. What are your options?
1. Do nothing.
"This is only the beginning! Your mind is free. You are 21. You are truly free! That victim trip your parents may use, you have named it. Now it isn't quite as powerful.
Most especially, YOU ARE NOT ALONE!…"
"Yeah, your parents fucked you up. Try to save up as much as you possibly can so you can escape. My first year of college was one of the best times of my life. I could drink COFFEE! I could stay out late! I could swear! I could make an atheist club!…"

"My daughter (20) is terrible at Algebra to the point of having to take Algebra 2-3times! She had the test done and they do it for everything, not just for math. She scored 99% in the reading and writing and 43%? in math. They told…"
"I would advise against doing this. It seems obvious to me that you would fail the test and be labelled as dyscalculic when the fact of the matter is that you simply have never had proper schooling. Maths, like reading, is not a skill we are born…"
"I'm so sorry for you, religion aside that's just plain horrible. I know it might be difficult, but try and get out. Heck, if you can wait a few years you can crash at my place. But on the bright side, you found this place, I haven't…"
"Don't feel bad, I don't have a math-gene in my entire body. My daughter who is at a State University and is VERY smart can't pass her damn math class to save her life. She flunked it once already. I can tell by…"
