Is it re-education if you are having to unlearn the bad first?

So my christmas went okay except for two women losing their minds:My grandmother and my boyfriend's "memaw". My grandmother threw a fit because I went to spend Christmas with the boyfriend, instead of "with the family". Before I left, she kept picking arguements with my mother and egging her on by talking about how she wish she could see "her family".The same family that left her nearly blind, starving, and not very clean.It's upsetting how what me and my mom do just isn't enough, and she's…See More

"John, Did not you learn your lesson? Choice is not free. It is dependent. It describes a relationship between entities. Or something along those lines. You might be correct. But you have to live the lie or else you become mush. Then again what…"

Its friday and I AM NOT IN LOVE

So today in the discussion forum in class, the topic of nature vs nurture came up(I'm a psych major so this was going to happen ANYWAY). Well one of the students, I'll name him Mark Christian, ranted on and on about choice, and then said this gem: "In the continuum I lean more toward Environmental explanations for our behavior. The choice to pursue a change in gender for example, rests on a decision by us to do that, and may come from overly being associated with a female All our life without a…See More

I pushed myself too hard, and now I am paying for it.

My surgical pain is at the same level that it was a week ago. I'm angry at myself for being weak. What makes me even more angry is that it took me spending time with the boyfriend to realize I shouldn't have to DO everything. But oh does it make me feel inadequate.

 

I started classes yesterday and it looks like it is going to be really easy.

 

Also...

Folks, I need you to do me a favor. My best…

So, it has been four months(?) since I've last had to accompany my mother to church. I have responded to my new freedom my sleeping in, writing, or jewelry making. Let's see what is going on with me:

 

-I'm finally learning how to drive. Maybe my mom would put herself in the car with me THIS TIME. 

 

-I'm moving out of the house next year! YES!

 

-I'm Graduating!(yes!) Next Year!(boo!)

 

-I'm starting up my blogs again(oh…

Hello Noir and welcome to this friendly meeting place with freethinkers who recognise that gods are fictions and that religions exist to control vulnerable superstitious people including defenceless children; and how tragic and inexcusable it is that women and minorities have been oppressed these last two thousand years and longer.

Terry Meaden
founder of the busy group "ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Earth, Humans, Religion, Evolution, Darwin..." with its 300 discussion topics.
We invite you to join us and 1750 others.
