So my mother has a twisted way of looking at parenthood and children's roles in the family.

1) She thinks that parents are always right, no matter what. Even if they're wrong, children have no say in the matter because parents have ultimate power.

2) She seriously stated that it's more than okay for parents to take their problems out on their kids. ie. If the parents were pushed around at work, they have the right to go home and push their children around, even if the children didn't do anything wrong. This is because she thinks that parents are always right (refer to #1) and that whatever parents do is okay, no matter how bad or wrong it is. And if the kids need someone to push around, they can beat their pets if they have to.

I asked her, "So if I need to pick on something to relieve my anger and frustration, I can beat and kill my cat and it'll be okay, right?" You know what she said to me? She said, "Yes, if you want to, because in the ranks of family life, it's lower than you, so you can do whatever you want. So go ahead and kill it."

And this is coming from a person who believes in Buddhism and thinks that she should do good in life in order to have good karma.

3) Children's role in the family is to obey at whatever the cost. They have no say in the matter. If their parents are wrong and punish them wrongly, they still have to shut up and take the punishment because children are worse than trash. They are always stupid, wrong, and should have no opinion.

And people wonder why I'm fucked up. Tyrants raised me.

As long as he's not taking pleasure in it, but is only doing it to relieve anger and frustration from being picked on by someone else, then I assume she'll go for that also. Who knows what she's thinking. Her reasoning is always so fucked up.

Don't tempt me into moving to Ohio with you. One day, I might just do that. I need to find a job there first. Chances are when I leave, I won't come back here again.
