    We seem to be miscommunicating, or possibly using different terms or something.

    An individual child is not raised "in general", it is raised by one or more parents, yes. However, 'children' as a whole are raised mainly by parents on the middle part of the bell curve. Ignoring the norm in favor of the exception does not make the norm go away.

    In general, women and men are not the same, and mothers and fathers are not the same, and do not parent exactly the same, nor role-model exactly the same. I'd think this was obvious... uncommon exceptions aside.

    No I'm not. I'm saying that gender effects parenting. And I gave examples to show that. I didn't say all women are like my mother and men are like my father. That's your interpretation of what I said and it is a distortion of my words.

    Ok. Well, I'm saying that you cannot prove that fathers in general could comfort me like my mother.

    You are right about that. Some are heartless and cruel, and I'm glad I didn't have such a mother.

    Well my father sure wasn't about kissing me. Matter of fact don't ever remember him kissing me. I remember getting into a fight with a sixth grader when I was in the fourth grade. I came home and my father laughed at me. lol

    Well my father kicked a$$. Even at his funeral people talked about how he used to kick a$$. My mother wasn't a slouch in that regard either. I remember I was about 13 and my mother told me to do something I didn't like. I don't remember exactly how I responded but she didn't like it and she slapped me so hard! Damn!!!

    I don't think I did. No offense taken. I've always been very independent in my thinking. I may have succumbed when I was quite young, but don't remember ever doing it as a teen or older.

    That's good for you. I think one of the reasons I have such an independent streak now is because I can remember doing things simply to fit in when I was in my early teens. Makes me a little mad when I think about it. That and when I think about how I used to believe in Santa Claus. LOL

    I remember an incident of people succumbing to peer pressure when I was 11 and me confronting them all on it. That incident stuck with me, one reason I think I didn't feed into it after.

    Well I'm glad they weren't playing knockout when I was a teenager. Seems like one of those things I might I have done.
