    I got lucky. Both of my sons are smart. They don't buy into that liberal crap.

    Nah, I tell them she's my liberal and I love her anyway.

    Yes, that would be another way. Unfortunately for you, you'd be wrong......but then I wouldn't expect you to know WTF you're talking about when it comes to my daughter. I raised my kids to be good people, and just treat others decently.

    In your world, the proper way to raise a daughter is probably as a man-hater.

    "You're right and I'm wrong." Hmmmmm...I can't imagine why she would want to break free from that!

    Why the hell wouldn't I be. I'm more than proud of who I am and what I believe in. I don't hide it.

    Just like how we raise our sons, to be independent and strong individuals.

    Again, you project utter ignorance about other people, but a fanatical ideologue such as yourself is predictable.

    I raised my daughter to be strong, independent, intellectually curious, fair, with a strong emphasis on personal responsibility in all areas of life and to not take any **** from anybody. She's my greatest success in this life.
