    I learned very early in life that Love is something that really doesn't exist. She got to wait about a decade longer before she truly learned the truth about the blackness of the human heart. We've both seen the lie that is "love", GottaGo and we no longer believe in it.

    It's not just Tigger. My own mother-in-law once told my oldest daughter she should not go to college, and that what she should really do is get married and start a family. I almost lost my cool over that and started a massive family dispute. Almost.

    Oldest daughter will be graduating college in May with just under a 4.0 gpa in biology.
    Still waiting on replies from medical grad schools at this time.
    Ahhh...I understand. It's a shame, to me, that people still stereotype genders. While, as I said, I have no daughters, I think I would have raised my daughters the same as I have raised my sons. Heck, my one son who is in college is the first one in his family...including his aunts, uncles, his parents and his cousins...to even go to college. If I had a daughter I would have encouraged her the same way I encouraged my son.

    #3) I could have posted Tigger's response for him. I knew that was coming. Not a surprise to anyone who knows Tigger. Just waiting to see what others post now.

    What's your point of view on raising daughters?
    My daughter is a college educated liberal.

    I think that it's obvious that girls should be raised differently - by and large, they are different. That doesn't mean they shouldn't have dreams open to them, but it doesn't mean that they are boys. Generally, boys need to be raised to know that they are and should be someone worthy of respect, where girls need to be raised to know that they are and should be someone worthy of love. I definitely intend to focus on the relevant area for my two boys and my little girl.

    Boys are more naturally rough, girls more naturally caring. Girls perhaps have higher EQ's, boys have a higher propensity to hit each other with rocks to see what happens when they do. Boys tend to have more active lives, but shorter attention spans - girls tend to be able to focus for longer periods of time better, but are less likely to seek out physical adventure. Not better or worse, just different.

    I feel for you. Do you tell people? Or just make up some story about how she's not a liberal, you swear, she just ran away and joined the circus / works for the mafia beating up children / something less embarrassing than being a college liberal?

    These are some sick, disgusting, and blatantly misogynistic views, Tigger.

    That's certainly one way of looking at it. Another way would be that she broke free from the chains of patriarchy that he tried to impose on her. To that young woman, I say, bravo!
