The Mind and Madness Blog

This is one of the two places I post whatever strikes my fancy in a given moment. You will see anything from photography and Conservative politics; to religion and literature. I will post pinup girls, comic books, classic horror films, and circus/carnival posters. I am a stage performer, a paralegal/clerk, a Christian, an aging rocker, and..yes... a Doctor Who fan. If you don't like a post, don't troll me over it. I don't care. Just wait five minutes and something you like will show up. Other places to find me on the web:

First, I am an atheist and do not fear your hell.

Second, you are wishing eternal suffering on me because I believe it is wrong to kill innocent unborn human beings. Or more accurately, because I confront those who believe killing these children is the right thing to do. You want me to suffer because I am defending the most vulnerable and defenseless among us. Who, do you think, is in the wrong here?

Of course, that is a rhetorical question as I already know the answer you will give. You believe you are right because your twisted sense of morality tells you that killing unborn children is an acceptable means to an end. You believe that the basic human Right to Life does not apply to certain human beings, or that it applies more to some than it does to others. You believe that your life is more valuable than even your own child’s life. You believe that it is better to sacrifice a child than it is to sacrifice for a child. And you are wrong for believing these things.

"Sometimes you need to sacrifice something that matters to you… to offer something that matters more to someone else."

yeah just forget all the people in the world that have been killed by people in the name of religion. This poster is moronic

I think the point is that Communism sucks

Communism has a body count per year which exceeds that of religion by no minuscule amount. And in just 100 years, it has outdone at least 1000 years of religious wars.
Also, the majority of religious wars were the result of the manipulation by govt or religious leadership, with an obvious exception of [Political] Islam’s oldschool takeover of most of Western Asia and Southern Europe and The Crusades, which started out as a response to the former.

Really?  This argument again?  You red diaper doper babies will just never face up to reality, will you?
“Religious war, specifically Christian war, has killed more people than any other kind of war.”
Let’s just start from relatively recent times. And let’s discuss those wars that were not waged in the name of religion, but were actually waged by “the enlightened,” in the name of “freedom for the people.”

18th Century Slave Trade: 
 
·         Atlantic slave trade: ca. 5,000,000 transported and 8,100,000 died.
·         Islamic slave trade: ca. 1,300,000 transported and 2,000,000 died.
·         Seven Years War (1755-63): 1 million, 300,000.
·         French Revolution and Napoleonic Wars (1792-1802):  Estimated 3-4 million.
·         War of the Spanish Succession (1701-13): 1 million, 324,300.
·         These were all non-religious wars.  
·         Let’s move into the 19th Century Slave Trade: 
·         Atlantic slave trade: ca. 1.6M transported and 2.5M deaths.
·         Islamic slave trade: ca. 2M transported and 3M died.
·         Venezuela, power struggles (1830-1903): 1 million.
·         Colonial El Niño Famines (1876-1900): 31-61 million.
·         American Civil War (1861-65): Over 600,000
·         Paraguay, War of the Triple Alliance (1864-70): Over 1 million or more than 80% of its population
 
But, surely the enlightenment of the 20th Century saw more civilized and rational thinking by the scientifically and secular minded, right?
·         WWI (1914-18)= 15 million (half of that is non-military death) and this is a low estimate.  Add to that the people of the Russian Steppe region, estimated at 100,000.
·         Russian Civil War (1917-22) = 9 million
·         Soviet Union, Stalin’s regime (1924-53) = 20-51 million killed by a decidedly and violently atheist regime.
·         WWII (1937-45) = 55 million (yet another non-religious war)
·         Post-War Expulsion of Germans from East Europe (1945-47) = 2 million, 100,000
·         Chinese Civil War (1945-49) = 2 million, 500,000 
·         People’s Republic of China, Mao Zedong’s regime (1949-1975) = 40 million (Does anyone out there want to try to argue that Mao was a Christian?)
·         Tibet (1950 et seq.) = 600,000 (China imposing “atheism” on others)
·         Korean War (1950-53) = 2 million, 800,000.  (Communist, Atheists.)
·         North Korea (1948 et seq.) = 1 million, 663,000 (not even warring, just imposing “atheism” on its own people.)
·         Rwanda and Burundi (1959-95) = 1 million 350,000.
·         Second Indochina War [including Vietnam] (1960-75) = 3 million, 500,000.
·         Ethiopia (1962-92) = 1 million, 400,000.
·         Afghanistan (1979-2001) = 1 million, 800,000 (Soviets trying to impose “atheism” again.)
·         Sudan (1983 et seq.) = 1 million, 900,000 (no more slave trade deaths, so they start killing each other?)
·         Kinshasa Congo (1998 et seq.) = 3 million 800,000.
 
Now, let’s discuss those evil religious folks and their wars.  While there is no denying that deaths did in fact occur during wars that were either based on or fueled by religion, we simply cannot say that those wars caused “more deaths than any other,” if we are intellectually honest.
·         Crusades (1095-1291) = 1-5 million. (Which can be argued all day long as a religious war, but even the most well known historians have shown evidence that this was more of a war over land, territories, and property of the region, than religion. And, if you’d like, put it back in, but I have taken roughly 6 pages of information concerning the Muslim aggression beginning in the 8th Century, that led up to The Crusades.
·         Witch Hunts (1400-1800) = an estimated 20-100 thousand. Now, decidedly, this is a period of dark history for the churches in general. 
·         Spanish Inquisition (1478-1834) = estimated 32 thousand. Again, decidedly a Christian issue. But hardly illustrative of the assertion that Christians killed more people than any other religion or war.
 
I just can’t abide the assertions that Christians are to blame for all of the ills of the world. I also can’t be silent about the false comparison of the Islamic war on most of humanity with things like the settlement of America. It is simply a false assertion on its face.
To date, just since 9-11, Islamic terrorists have carried out more than 22,000 attacks in various countries. 
The death toll for Islam, just 1945 to present in just their home region:
·         Algeria: 100,00 (1990’s)
·         Lebanon: 120,000 (70’s-90’s)
·         Syria: 20,000 (just in 1982)
·         Chad: 30,000 (1945-present)
·         Sudan: 2.6 million (1950’s-present)
·         Turkey: 20,000 (1945-present)
·         Iraq: 1.5 million (1980’s-90’s)
·         Tajikistan: 50,000 in (1990’s)
·         Afghanistan 50,000 (still counting)
·         Iran: 900,000 (1980’s)
·         Bangladesh: 1.5 million (1970’s)
·         Yemen: 150,000 (1960’s)
·         Somalia and pirate raids: 150,000 (still counting)
·         Indonesia: 400,000 (1960’s)
·         East Timor Islands: 200,000 (1970’s-90’s)
So, if we are going to talk about deaths caused by religion, let’s really talk about it and not just a bunch of anti-Christian rhetoric. 
Wars don’t just break out spontaneously out of nowhere, or because of religion, or of the supposed decline of religious hold over a place. Wars and conflicts are the direct result of the oppression of people or the direct attack on freedom, equality, honesty, and generosity). 
In other words, poverty, oppression, and social injustice are the primary causes for conflict. The Islamic world makes this abundantly clear. In many places throughout the Islamic World religious freedoms, women’s and gay rights are almost non-existent. 
At the same time oppressive regimes greatly restrict the freedoms of speech, press, and expression, and the civil liberties of their people. These conditions make a perfect breeding ground for extremism. These conditions also contribute to regional conflicts and instability, and to the spread of violence and terrorism around the world.This brings me to point # 2.
“Religion has killed more people than any plague or disease.”
·         Smallpox (430 BC? – 1979) Killed more than 300 million people worldwide in the 20th century alone, and most of the native inhabitants of the Americas.
·         Spanish Flu (1918 - 1919) Killed 50 to 100 million people worldwide in less than 2 years.
·         Black Death (1340 - 1771) Killed 75 million people worldwide.
·         Malaria (1600 - today) Kills about 2 million people per year.
·         AIDS (1981 - today) Killed 25 million people worldwide.
·         Cholera (1817 - today) 8 pandemics; hundreds of thousands killed worldwide.
·         Typhus (430 BC? - today) Killed 3 million people between 1918 and 1922 alone, and most of Napoleon’s soldiers on Russia

These figures are according the Center for Disease Control.  If you hear an atheist or secularist spout point number 2, slap them for me, please.  Clearly, from the above figures, there is only ONE religion that can claim that distinction.

"Yeah because you can totally tell how smart I am based on my opinion that porn is okay vs your opinion that is isn't. You're what's wrong with feminism; making men evil no matter what and women are always innocent victims who can't make choices for themselves. Because porn stars are totally forced to shoot videos and none of them have EVER quit the industry, right? Oh wait they have."

  • Worldwide revenue from mobile phone pornography is $1 billion-plus and growing (Bryan-Low, Cassel and Pringle, David. “Sex Cells: Wireless Operators Find That Racy Cellphone Video Drives Surge in Broadband Use.” The Wall Street Journal, May 12, 2005)

Ex-porn star testimonies:

  • Corina Taylor: ”When I arrived to the set I expected to do a vaginal girl boy scene. But during the scene with a male porn star, he forced himself anally into me and would not stop. I yelled at him to stop and screamed ‘No’ over and over but he would not stop. The pain became too much and I was in shock and my body went limp.”
  • Jenna Jameson: ”Most girls get their first experience in gonzo films – in which they’re taken to a crappy studio apartment in Mission Hills and penetrated in every hole possible by some abusive asshole who thinks her name is Bitch.”
  • Alexa James: ”The first shoot I did was with a man who was probably 40 and he was as thick as a soda can. He held me down and shoved it in me with no lube tearing my vagina. When I started to tear up and cry he flipped me over and continued from behind be so they wouldn’t get me crying on film. He pulled my hair and choked me over and over again even when I told him it hurt and I could barely breathe.”
  • Linda Lovelace: ”My initiation into prostitution was a gang rape by five men, arranged by Mr. Traynor. It was the turning point in my life. He threatened to shoot me with the pistol if I didn’t go through with it. I had never experienced anal sex before and it ripped me apart. They treated me like an inflatable plastic doll, picking me up and moving me here and there. They spread my legs this way and that, shoving their things at me and into me, they were playing musical chairs with parts of my body. I have never been so frightened and disgraced and humiliated in my life. I felt like garbage. I engaged in sex acts for pornography against my will to avoid being killed.The lives of my family were threatened.”
  • Andi Anderson: ”After a year or so of that so-called “glamorous” life, I sadly discovered that drugs and drinking were a part of the lifestyle. I began to drink and party out of control! Cocaine, alcohol and ecstasy were my favorites. Before long, I turned into a person I did not want to be. After doing so many hardcore scenes I couldn’t do it anymore. I just remember being in horrible situations and experiencing extreme depression and being alone and sad.”
  • Alexa Milano: ”My first movie I was treated very rough by 3 guys. They pounded on me, gagged me with their penises, and tossed me around like I was a ball! I was sore, hurting and could barely walk. My insides burned and hurt so badly. I could barely pee and to try to have a bowel movement was out of the question. I was hurting so bad from the physical abuse from these 3 male porn stars.”
  • Jessie Jewels: ”People in the porn industry are numb to real life and are like zombies walking around. The abuse that goes on in this industry is completely ridiculous. The way these young ladies are treated is totally sick and brainwashing. I left due to the trauma I experienced even though I was there only a short time.”
  • Genevieve: ”I had bodily fluids all over my face that had to stay on my face for ten minutes. The abuse and degradation was rough. I sweated and was in deep pain. On top of the horrifying experience, my whole body ached, and I was irritable the whole day. The director didn’t really care how I felt; he only wanted to finish the video.”
  • Jersey Jaxin: ”Guys punching you in the face. You have semen from many guys all over your face, in your eyes. You get ripped. Your insides can come out of you. It’s never ending.”
  • Elizabeth Rollings: ”I didn’t want to feel the pain of penetration from an over average sized man, being told to freeze in a position until the camera man was happy with his shots was very painful. I had peoples body fluids forced on my face or anywhere else the producer pleased and I had to accept it or else no pay. Sometimes you would get to a gig and the producer would change what the scene was supposed to be to something more intense and again if you didn’t like it, too bad, you did it or no pay.”
  • Lucky Starr: ”I was worried about my first anal scene for quite a few days … then the big moment arrived. It REALLY hurt! I almost quit and said, “I can’t do this”. When it was all over, I was so happy and relieved I was able to do it…”
  • Ashlyn Brooke: ”I honestly felt that if I had to have another strange man in my face, his hands (God knows where they’ve been all over me) him calling me his baby and having to exude some sort of forged passion for the world to see, I probably would have exploded. And what would have been stuck to the walls would have probably been nothing, just pieces of skin, bone, the brain of a robot, and what would have been left of what would have existed once as a huge and warm heart.”
  • Roxy: ”After only 30 movies I caught two sexually transmitted diseases. Herpes, a non-curable disease and HPV, which led to cervical cancer where I had to have half of my cervix removed. Porn destroyed my life.”
  • Anita Cannibal: ”Yeah, there are a lot of cover-ups going on. There is a lot of tragedy. There are a lot of horrible things.”
  • Tamra Toryn: ”As for myself, I ended up paying the price from working in the porn industry. In 2006, not even 9 months in, I caught a moderate form of dysplasia of the cervix (which is a form of HPV, a sexually transmitted disease) and later that day, I also found out I was pregnant. I had only 1 choice which was to abort the baby during my first month. It was extremely painful emotionally and physically. When it was all over, I cried my eyes out.”
  • Jessi Summers: ”I also did a scene where I was put with male talent that was on my no list. I wanted to please them so I did it. He put his foot on my head and stepped on it while he was doing me from behind. I freaked out and started balling; they stopped filming and sent me home with reduced pay since they got some shot but not the whole sce

porn trends:

how pornographers feel about women:

  • "I’d like to really show what I believe the men want to see: violence against women. I firmly believe that we [pornographers] serve a purpose by showing that. The most violent we can get is the cum shot in the face. Men get off behind that, because they get even with the women they can’t have. We try to inundate the world with orgasms in the face." -  Bill Margold, porn industry veteran, quoted in Robert J. Stoller and I. S. Levine, Coming Attractions: The Making of an X-rated video; 1993.
  • "There’s nothing I love more than when a girl insists to me that she won’t take a cock in her ass, because — oh yes she will!" -Max Hardcore, interviewed in Hustler (June 1995).
  • "My whole reason for being in this Industry is to satisfy the desire of the men in the world who basically don’t much care for women and want to see the men in my Industry getting even with the women they couldn’t have when they were growing up. I strongly believe this… so we come on a woman’s face or somewhat brutalize her sexually: we’re getting even for their lost dreams. I believe this. I’ve heard audiences cheer me when I do something foul on screen. When I’ve strangled a person or sodomized a person, or brutalized a person, the audience is cheering my action, and then when I’ve fulfilled my warped desire, the audience applauds." - Bill Margold, porn industry veteran and Free Speech Coalition board member.
  • "It might promote violence against women in the United States, but I say, ‘Good.’ I hate those bitches. They’re out of line and that’s one of the reasons I want to do this … I’m going through a divorce right now. … I hate American women." - What pornographers really think of women (Deutsche Presse-Agentur, 14 October 1999)

2010 study on popular porn films:

  • 88% of scenes contained physical aggression, including spanking, gagging, and slapping. 
  • Women were overwhelmingly the targets of aggressive acts, and men the perpetrators.
  • Following instances of aggression towards women, in 95% of cases the women expressed pleasure or neutrality.

cases of porn leading children to commit sexual assualt IN THE UK ALONE:

  • February 2014: A 13-year-old boy told a UK court that he raped his 8-year-old sister after viewing pornography at his friend’s house.  The teenager told police he “decided to try it out” on his sister because she was small and “couldn’t remember stuff,” reported the Lancashire Telegraph.
  • November 2013: A different 13-year old UK boy pleaded guilty to raping an eight-year old girlwhen he was 10. A pornography addiction since age 9 was said to have played a significant role in his crimes.
  • March 2013: Two boys aged 14 and 15 admitted to a British court that they were re-enacting scenes witnessed in violent online pornography when they beat, brutalized, then raped a 14-year-old girl they had tied to a chair.
  • March 2013: A UK report found that thousands of British children had committed sexual offenses. In all, 4,562 minors – some as young as five – committed 5,028 sexual offenses over a three year period from 2009-2012. Experts blamed “easy access to sexual material.”
  • January 2012: Children’s aid and sex abuse organizations in Australia largely blamed 414 cases of children sexually abusing other children on the explosion of pornography made accessible to children.
  • August 2012: A 13-year-old Canadian boy pleaded guilty to repeatedly raping a 4-year-old boy who lived in his foster home. The boy said the idea came from watching “gay porn” on his foster parents’ home computer.
  • April 2012: A child therapist reported a case of a 13-year-old boy who raped his 5-year-old sisterafter developing a “complex fantasy world” warped by “two years of constant porn use.”

racism in porn:

  • Latinos and HispanicsPornography tends to stereotype Hispanic women as feisty, “hot and spicy Latinas”, sexy Señoritas, with a high sex drive and low impulse control. Many are portrayed as maidsillegal immigrants to the United States, or unfaithful wives. Since Latinos and Hispanics can be of any race (many are white Hispanic AmericansMestizos etc.), cultural characteristics are sometimes portrayed via iconic items like South and Central American national costumessombrerosmaracas, or Mexican dresses.
  • Asian women: Are viewed as sexually willing or submissive. Asian men are hardly portrayed in pairing with white women and not as common compared to white men with asian women porn. Asian women are mainly portrayed as the: “Dragon Ladies”, as servile “Lotus Blossom Babies”, “Innocent School Girls” in private school uniforms, “China dolls”, “Geisha girls”, war brides, or prostitutes. Japanese media have also at times sensationalistically promoted the stereotype of Japanese women overseas as “yellow cabs”. 
  • Black performers: Large penis size in Black men is consistently emphasized in pornography, often by exclusively casting actors with larger than average penises such as Lexington SteeleKid BengalaJack Napier and Mandingo. Men are often treated to stereotypes of gang affiliation, working class labor, and are overrepresented in gang rape fetish films. Also, they are represented as overly aggressive and demanding, and are performing with white women. Similarly, black women are often portrayed with large breast and buttocks, or ‘booty’. They normally play a submissive role while performing with a white male.

Kid’s access to pornography:

  • Youth who look at violent x-rated material are six times more likely to report forcing someone to do something sexual online or in-person versus youth not exposed to x-rated material. [12]
  • Middle-school aged boys who view X-rated content are almost three times more likely to report oral sex and sexual intercourse than boys who do not use sexually explicit material[13]  
  • A study in the southeastern U.S. found that 53 percent of boys and 28 percent of girls (ages 12-15) reported use of sexually explicit media. The Internet was the most popular forum for viewing. [14]

Child Pornography

  • Child pornography is a $3-billion industry. (Top Ten Reviews)
  • Child pornography is one of the fastest growing businesses online, and the content is becoming much worse.  (Internet Watch Foundation)  Internet Watch Foundation confirmed 1536 child abuse domains in 2008.
  •  The fastest growing demand in commercial websites for child abuse is for images depicting the worst type of abuse, including penetrative sexual activity involving children and adults and sadism or penetration by an animal.  58% of child sexual abuse images depict this level of abuse. (IWF, 2008)
  •  69% of all victims in child abuse images are between the ages of 0 and 10 years old. (IWF, 2008)
  •  In a study of arrested child pornography possessors, 40 percent had both sexually victimized children and were in possession of child pornography. Of those arrested between 2000 and 2001, 83 percent had images involving children between the ages 6 and 12; 39 percent had images of children between ages 3 and 5; and 19% had images of infants and toddlers under age 3 (National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, Child Pornography Possessors Arrested in Internet-Related Crimes: Findings fro the National Juvenile Online Victimization Study. 2005).

Life and death of a porn star:

Just links:

HOW YOU CAN HELP

if these links aka fucking cold hard proof dont make you stop watching it, i hope you drop dead.  

I have to commend you on the research here.  

This is an excellent resource for the argument of culture and its affect on the thinking of kids.

This is also a good resource for the argument concerning the psychology of those who are locked into certain choices and thereby locked into behaviors.

And, as a former practitioner of BDSM and a (thankfully former) porn addict, I can tell you your points on that are spot on.  

Well done!

Religion, Gays, and Psychology:

I got asked: Show me the passage of the bible that directly condemns homosexuality?

Show me which passage condones it, then I will accept your arrogant attempt to use a book you don’t even believe in to push your political agenda.

This naturally devolved into a conversation about “Homophobia.”

Phobia does not consist of wishing for it to be as private as you want religion to be. Nor is that hatred. Hatred would be stringing you up and flaying you alive as Islam does daily. Phobia would be to utterly ban your practices from society. And there is not ONE (right thinking) Christian anywhere on the planet that does either. 

And yet, you are immensely bold in going after Christians with your agenda in the gay community. NONE of your effort has been put to seeking to confront Islam for putting gays to death every day. NONE of your effort goes to trying to stop the sale of children, (both male and female), as sex slaves in seven different countries ti this very day. 

No, far easier to wage an electronic troll war on those dirty rotten Christ followers and their stupid book. (Easier because you know they won’t hang you, shoot you, stone you, or flay you alive in the public square.) It is a giant hypocrisy that you can’t even admit.

He pressed further into the “Born That way” argument.

I would pull up all of my research on genetics and the formation of DNA strands and genetic identity upon conception; but that would take pages here and is readily available in Google.

I got asked: “So all those gay people choose to spend the rest of their lives only being attracted to the same sex?  Did you choose to be attracted to women?”

The theories of psycho-sexual development as related to personal nature and the nurture available; has been expanded to include a fuller definition of both “fixation” and “lock on-lock out.” “Fixation” is generally the complete acceptance of a given set of psycho-sexual parameters during development; whereas “Lock-on/lock-out” is when we determine that we are going to adhere to those parameters to the exclusion of all other parameters.

This can occur at any time after cognitive development is in full gear. (Roughly age 8.) This can include proclivities toward sexuality. Before that, we are subject to only those parameters which our environment allow. But… I digress.

This is why it has become a key part of the national gay agenda, to introduce kids to the concepts of homosexuality and alternate sexuality in schools by the time they are 12 or 13.

Ok, so you’re saying the brain fools itself into believing that it only likes the same sex or that some teacher has to force it on you?”

No… I’m saying that as the brain develops; we make certain cognitive choices based on the available information in our lives at the time. 

And… it doesn’t matter. What matters is whether they “fall in love” with that person out of genuine affect
ion and desire for coupling; or they “fall in love” with that person out of an attempt to break free of perceived constructs and to establish a rebellion against available surrounding parameters and influences.

The brain must be locked onto a given set of parameters by the choice of the receiver of the available input. They must first fixate on a given set of stimuli, then choose to accept or reject that fixation. The cognitive choice is made quite similar to the choice to accept the notion of the existence of God.

For instance, many like myself, accept both the notion that there is a higher power involved in the workings of the universe; as well as accepting the notion that there is more than one pattern of interpersonal/sexual relationship. Psychologically and cognitively, it is EXACTLY the same.

There have been studies that show that children that have been sexually abused have a higher proclivity toward sexual choices. This is actually an area I know a great deal about personally, as one that practiced the BDSM lifestyle for the greater portion of my early adulthood. 

There is a direct psychological connection between sexual choices and the psychology of the individual having made those choices. That psychology can be affected by a number of factors including whether one has been abused as a child. 

However, to assume this the sole cause of our choices, discounts the millions of people who are abused, who never choose to abuse others. Similarly, one homosexual act committed upon a child does not necessarily affect the psyche in such a way as to cause them to “lock on” to that behavior. (See definitions above.)

Some of you social warriors out there have used the term “abuse” to describe the parental influence via the use of religion. This could not be further from reality. Most parents of any religion I have encountered, simply offer their choice of religion to the child as a means to teach the child those behaviors, practices, and personal choices they view as best and therefor would like to see exhibited b y the child.

By your definition, it must be seen as abuse for a gay couple or an atheist couple (or both), to raise a child devoid of any of the possible sources of moral and social choices; simply because those choices involve God or religion 

By your definition, it must be seen as abuse for any couple to raise a child, in a home where the relationship of the parents; whether straight, gay, secular, or religious; is based on a social construct, a political point, or to snub some sector of society.

It is abusive to the psyche to limit the ability of the child to formulate their own attitudes, thoughts, and practices based on all available sources.

We pressed further into the “trying to cure gayness” area.

Nobody (who is a right thinking individual) wants to cure them. we want them to behave as they expect the rest of us to behave… like good, upstanding, polite, human beings that keep their damn personal choices out of our faces and quit trying to tell the rest of us how to think. But, ya know…

No relationship that refuses to accept and practice the basic moral and ethical codes of society, or is formed for the purpose of snubbing said codes, has any business whatsoever even thinking about raising children. A relationship formed of a political or social commentary has no business at all trying to nurture the minds and spirits of the children.  If, however, you are honest, upstanding, loving, and genuine in your desire to create a family and bring them up to the best of your ability, without pushing your role on them, more power to you!
