My first reaction to that was OMFG ABUSE.... and then I remembered... I took my daughter to her first BDSM party. I did it to protect her - she was into it already - and I wanted to introduce her to 'safe' people. And I have. And now we don't play at the same parties. But some people could see that as seriously sick, twisted and why did she know about bdsm at 18 (and before) and how could I?? So I'm going to remember that one. I've done some pretty unconventional parenting things that were really actually quite healthy if taken in context.

I would have quoted the entire post - I agree with it all. For the most part - there's really only one topic that I CAN'T see from the other person's point of view. Doesn't mean I don't like those people, doesn't mean I don't talk to or associate with people who feel that way - just means that there's a part of me that forever goes "Really? Seriously?" because their viewpoint is so diametrically opposed to mine.

Meh. I'm a grown up - most of the time - I'll get over it

See I raised my daughter--- differently than others expected. She certainly set more than one church youth group on fire with discussion.

And then there was the time I was cleaning out my bedroom, was getting rid of a crop/whips/ BDSM books. She saw, and asked for them... for a friend. (okay maybe she was the friend.)

I think she turned out great.

And who am I to question this guy's relationship with ... anyone in his family? Sheesh, I haven't talked to my sister for years.

I never actually thought WTF??!!until after the chat was over. I just needed a reality check.

BTW, at a recent BDSM meeting the topic was humor... and several stories revolved around running into family members at dungeons and online BDSM chat areas.

And I said, "Be careful with the legal aspects." The niece is 22.. so old enough... Is incest a chargeable offense? (probably varies by location....sorry I answer my own questions sometimes)
