Misogynistic BS from my fundies

Sorry if this is a bit of a rant !!!!

 

My fundies have been here all week. The 1st and 3rd oldest (boys) are 15 and 16 and have just graduated from the SODRT. To my surpirse and delight, both have taken the SAT's and both did exceedingly well, and are planning to go to community college and on to college. I was really excited to hear this, their mom is super smart and has a degree and I know she's homeschooled them well. Here's the caviat - My stepmom asked about the 2nd oldest, a girl, and dad smiles and says "oh no she doesn't need to take the SAT's, she doesn't want to go to college". Now she is 15 and smart as a whip, but is obviously "keeping sweet" and it kills me. My stepmom (their grandma) cries because she knows they're going to marry her off at 18 so she can have her own quiver of craziness. Unfortunately I don't see any of the older ones breaking free, they're all knee deep in the koolaide. I just think its sad when people have no choices in their own lives.

 

Thanks for letting me bitch about it. I really wanna do somthing not so nice to their 'patriarch'.

I'm so sorry. That just makes me sad. I still remember riding in the car with my mom when I was about 18 and her turning to ask me, "So, do you really want to go to college? You don't have to do it, you know." Even so, my fundie parents did give me the choice to go(and to a secular school, no less!). I have to give credit for that. I hope your relatives come around and this girl at least gets a chance to use her gifts.

You have so much more restraint than I do. I would have started an inquisition.

That's my biggest problem, restraint - My stepmom loves her daughter and grandchildren more than life itself and her biggest fear is that he commands them to stop all contact, so for her sake we all smile and say absolutely nothing. It is so sad to see everytime they visit, but we kiss his ass so that my stepmom can stay in her grandchildren's lives. If I had the chance I would unleash a whole lotta feminist athiest whoopass on his ugly bully ass.

      Yeah, that's me.  Though to be fair I am trying to learn Italian and Spanish.

      It’s not supposed to be mosquito season right now but I still appear to have been bitten twice on the side of my foot. Bastards. I know I shouldn’t scratch but it’s so tempting… 😑

      Hello,
       
      I'm brand new to this forum. It was suggested to me by former and outspoken Remnant Fellowship member (Natasha Pavlovich) that I join this forum and put out here what I do. She also warned me that no one on here trusts, or trusts easily, and that I'd likely be assumed to be a Remnant plant or spy until vetted and verified as not that. Fair enough. 
      In short, and in truth, I'm a psychotherapist with 25 yrs experience in Franklin TN (less than three miles from RF incidentally) with a special interest in working with people formerly associated with cults, cult-like or any and all high control intitutions. I'm especially interested in working with those desiring not only deconstruct, recover and learn to thrive post-indoctrination, but those desiring to recapture or cultivate an authentic sense of theology without walls, or spirituality with borders. 
      To date, I've worked with former Amish, Mennonite, LDS/FLDS, FOG, and a those representing a whole slew of evangelical, fire and brimstone fear/shame/guilt-inducing institutions.
      I am especially interested in working with former Remnant Fellowship and Scientology members. I view RF as basically Scientology without the budget. 
      I'll leave it there. Much more can be gleaned about me through my website: therapyoutsidethebox.com or IG: @ therapyoutsidethebox
       
      Peace,

      I have a friend with untreated autism and ADHD. I've tried so fucking hard to help. He refuses. It's a mess. I'm really really tired.

      I'm a huge baseball fan. This year, MLB TV showed Liga Dominicana games in December and January and it was a fucking revelation. The players had so much fire and joy. The announcers with their charming DR accents were a blast, though I could hardly keep up with the Spanish. DItto the Serie del Caribe. As a White Sox fan, the MLB season is going to suffer by comparison. Te amo los Tigres del Licey!
