    my dad and I have a pretty good father-son relationship, the real bonus is that he works as a software engineer for an energy company, so he never gets out of date, hell, even when my friends and I used to play DND back when I lived with him, he would stick his head in and make some awful pun about something we were doing, but in the end we still laugh about it. Hes a cool dude, and a cool dad, still is, and always will be

    Thanks, I really do appreciate that from one stranger on the internet to another, so I will give you a story.

    You ever heard of the book Love You Forever? Whoooooo boy. That'll bring this thread out of sad to straight up BAWWWW in 5th gear. Well, here's how I learned of it.

    This was a couple years after the moment I lost my mom, which, by the way, is a small story in and of itself. Dad woke me up at 6:43. I knew that I was supposed to be up at 6. He just opened my door and said "Wake up. They cancelled school." and all I could reply with was just a soft "No..."

    Fast forward, I'm floating around Wal Mart at 3 in the morning. I'm in a podunk nowhere town, and there's nothing to do. Plus, it centers me. Looking back, it was over something stupid, a breakup or some shit. Anyways, I find this book. And like a moment of fate, I start reading it. By the time I was done, I was a bawling mass on the ground.

    "Forever and always,
    my baby you'll be."

    Take some time with your parents, make a moment. It's the least I can say.

    The the crushing blow comes the next day as I sleep after getting off work, he's had a stroke, call up my bio dad to spread the word. It gets worse from there, seeing him unable to figure out where he is, who I am, and what's going on, then the doctors pulling us aside as he sleeps and telling us it's metastetized or however you fucking spell it cancer that caused the stroke...now strokes, watching as his two sones one son's family, a couple coworkers and his church are the only ones who care about him.

    I really don't like thinking about it and they're both in they're 60s and have kind of hoisted me up as the responsible son who will take care of everything and want to talk to me about the life insurance and the will and all that. I hate it.

    Hell, if anything he's the reason I'm on /tg/. A long time ago Neverwinter Nights came out and I wanted to get it. At the time he was surprised people still played D&D and he gave me his old copy of Twilight: 2000. I still haven't played it, but I use the bag of dice he gave me every time me and my friends play. Every now and again to convince myself I use it, I contribute a few Twilight: 2000 pdfs when people start a book download thread.

    It sucks too, I'm on /tg/ because of him. I sat in his lap when he (or I as a wee lad) played Doom and Wolf3D. We played Panzer Dragoon together. I would sit on his lap as he would GM for his D&D group.

    Often times I would blather out a plot important piece of info when I read his notes, such as "Daddy, what's a Lich?" and he would play it off to the players as divine assistance.

    Later on he became immobile due to an unfortunate accident, and had to cancel going to his D&D games. I showed him Civilization, and he played Civ 3 religiously.

    He died on the release day of Civ 4. I bought it, but I can't bring myself to install it.

Hell, we've been to jail together a couple of times. Then there are times when I mourn and regret those times, /tg/ I only see my dad (if I am lucky, once every two years) and at best for two weeks.

    I remember growing up, I used to worship the ground he walked on, practically deified him. But as I got older, he looked less of a god, and more like an asshole. Its odd, I rebelled, hated him...for the longest time, now I don't. Its like were slowly coming back together now.

    Havn't talked to him in about a month, he's off in Haiti right now, doing who knows what. I never was allowed to know his line of work, but it has to do with the government. He told me he may not come back (he was drunk at the time) So I figured he was being dramatic. But now after reading that I worry.

    He always told me that men are animals deep down, and any animal will always know when his time is near. I think he knows, /tg/ this is one of the few times I wish he was wrong. I need to tell him, but I do not know how. When he returns...if he returns, I'm gonna move down by him and do it just like him and his dad did it.

    My father worked at a restaurant until it closed down. It was his first job here and he still worked it even though he had a PhD in Civil Engineering and had a steady job. I'd always stay up to greet him when he came home in his uniform and with a box of leftovers. I can still remember the shows that ran on the TV as I waited: Star Trek...Red Dwarf....Married with Children....

    Other times, I'd stay up watching movies with him or just lie next to him on the floor (he liked sleeping on the ground). I'd ask him things like "If I broke the refrigerator, would you still love me?" and he'd say, "Of course, you're my son." Then I'd say things like, "What if I broke the house? What if I blew up the world? What if I destroyed the universe?" and no matter what I asked, he'd always love me. I miss those days.

    A while ago I overslept an important meeting with a women of the staff of my university. My dad came to wake me and I sent him off, but she called and he came to wake me up again. I set another meeting, hung up, and turned to see my dad with his "I'm disappoint" face on. He asked me why I said I had nothing to do that morning, I said I lied, and he seemed shocked, so I faked embarrassment. Then he was off to work.
    That evening, he came in my room and asked me about my studies, how I was doing and stuff. I made a few vague answers to stop that conversation.
    Then he said that he wasn't ever really close to his own father (my grandfather is kind of a dick), that he never really talked to him, and that now he regretted it. And then he looked sad.
    So I said that I don't mind talking to him, that I don't care who my interlocutor is, just what the subject is.
    He left my room, and I went back to masturbating.

    Least you had a Grandpa, Both mine died of Smoking related Illnesses. First one coughed up blood, and died on Christmas Eve during a family party. The Look in my Dad's eyes when he told me about it made me feel like I knew him even though he passed long before I was born. My other one died of Lung Cancer that spread throughout his body, and this was back when it was basically a death sentence.

    My dad wasn't an asshole or anything. Just a typical latin macho male.

    Mom and he got divorced when I was 13. He still loved me, I truly believe. He just never knew how to express it and still be a man.

    For that reason, I was taught masculinity by various mentors. Swell guys, really. Dad wasn't around a lot (divorced and all; he had me on the weekends) and he wasn't intellectual enough to guide me through that crucial, awkward period.

    I was lucky. I found men who were.

    As a result though, I've always had a kind of distant, wistful sadness about my dad. I don't talk to him much, now - if someone were to ask, I suppose I'd say I loved him. But he's more like a stranger to me, now.

    The day I moved out - I was 18 and a few months, with my life savings ($1,250 or so; god was I scared,) an '86 camry, and a destination 1500 miles away - he finally realized that loving his son was more important than his bullshit idea of machismo. He cried, we hugged, he said he loved me. I think if he hadn't I would have hated him. Now I just feel sad for him - and myself.

    My dad's a decent guy. If any of you met him, I bet you'd tell me he'd be nice to hang out with. He's thoughtful, sensitive and smart. But thanks to that attitude, I just don't have a deep, emotional connection with him like so many others have with their dads, for good or ill.

    I find it bittersweet that my Dad was the kind of man to teach me not to cry. That real men don't cry, it only shows that you're weaker then everyone else.

    Sort of like my dad, but deep down I know he loves me on a level he's not that good at expressing verbally. I'd do anything to make him proud of me though. -Anything-

    I... I should really try to spend more time with him though if I can. I sit and watch his WW2 documentaries and shows with him when I can, but I never go out with him when he drives around doing his photography hobby.

    I just remember him cleaning up after his dad when he [grandfather] had Alzheimer's disease and he couldn't take care of himself anymore. My dad never said anything, but I could see that he was really hurting going through all that.

    I swore to myself that day when my grandfather died that I'd treat my dad like a king once I got a place of my own and he retired. Though he's always working, I just can't imagine him retiring.

    I'm on great terms with both my parents.

    My dad used to beat us when we were younger, but we fought back and instead of getting lethal, it became more of a physical play. We'd beat the tar out of each other with smiles on our faces, then mom would scream at us.

    Now he's older and we're bigger, so we can't do that. But we still go shooting together, occasionally play games together, watch old shows together, and talk about how we'll overthrow the librul government and kill all the niggers and spics.

    I love you dad.

    Come to think of it, she's the one who told me all the stories of my dad's childhood. He never said anything about it...

    I knew he grew up poor though, never went out to eat, never had any toys. It made him frugal, but he wanted his son to have the things and opportunities he never had.

    My paternal Grandfather died after a long decline due to Alzheimer's; I barely knew him after my childhood because I never went to see him, and when I finally did, he was essentially a vegetable. He died four years later, he was a tough old man, but I hadn't seen him since, nor could I go to his funeral. I miss him terribly.

    Luckily my maternal grandfather is sharp as he ever was, if not in the best health (3 cigars a day!).

    As for my grandmothers, well, they're so tough they'll probably outlive me... at least I can dream.

    My grandfather was the most resourceful man I've ever seen. He survived a war, had an arm almost ripped off in a lumberyard, and had horrible injuries to the other from a chainsaw accident, but every time we'd go to visit, he'd still be up on a hill, chopping firewood or building a shed or something, even when he was in his seventies. Then, he got sick, and he went straight from that to being pale, too weak to move, and delirious for the rest of his life. I think that's when I decided that the universe is ultimately unfair.

    My dad is strong, in almost every meaning of the word. His ability to stand tall in the face of adversity, his work ethic, his willpower, his everything. He beat a two-year heroin addiction at seventeen, joined the Navy at eighteen, learned electronics despite having no aptitude for the subject at the time, and went on to become a blaster for a company that specializes in blowing huge holes in the earth with dynamite.

    I love him. I wish I could be like him. I wish I could do what he accomplishes with such apparent ease. His physical achievements are nothing short of amazing to me.

    My skills are something altogether less impressive. Reading. Writing. The best of what is mine is public speaking. I have no reason to suspect it, but I believe he's secretly ashamed of the son that can't do what he does. He has no reason to think it, but the only reason I can manage to "man up," as it were, is to emulate what I see in him.

    Strength. Confidence. Assuredness.

    One day, I'll tell him. One day.

    While I'm grateful for the opportunities, morals, work ethic, good times, and experiences my father instilled in me, he abused me, my little sister, and my little brother in the name of making a point. He crossed the line. I moved out when I turned 18, and I have not spoken to him since. It's been more than five years now. I heard he had a mild heart attack, and laughed. Those feelings are fading. I imagine in ten years' time I will want to talk to him again. For now I remain a bastion of support for my mom.

    goddam sad threads

    sharing time.
    I moved halfway across the country a few years ago. Dont see the family as much as i ought to. Older sibling has kids (3!!! ahhhh!) younger sib is kinda ok but still in the parental home.

    about a month ago i got the call that my mom had been in for a routine blood panel and they found her liver somethingsomethings were off. Like weird and wrong. There was a negative on things like Hep, so all the specialists were in a holding pattern waiting for biopsy and etc testing.

    Thinking maybe its cancer, maybe its some kind of fatty liver disorder.

    ok, poked with giant needle, microscope, etc, apparently its some form of non-alchoholic fatty liver, which means that your liver just starts swelling up and getting fat and screwed up, hardening, cirrhosis eventually.

    Its bad, but its not as bad as it could be in theory. But it makes me remmeber that my mom is going to die. Not this week, not this year, but sooner then later.

    i am kinda screwed up over that, emotionally

    and i still pause before answering her calls or returning them because i dont know how to talk to her. i justify it by telling myself that i am busy at work or that i will call her back in the morning, but i usually dont.

    when i do call, we don't know how to talk to each other, so we talk about unimportant shit until i make an excuse to get off the phone or she realizes that i am uncomfortable and make the excuse for me.

    each time i think about how screwed up over this i will be when it is too late.

I have a job but I could have a better job. It's bullshit. Yesterday he called me naive and said that I have low self esteem and don't set my bar high enough.

    Everytime I talk to him it turns into a conversation about how I don't have enough money or whatever. Then I get to sit by and watch as he and my younger brother have a better relationship.

    Fuck you, /tg/.

    Mom and dad split up when I was 3. Most of my childhood was between moving from low income apartment to shitty town house to duplex to whatever we could afford at the time, and feeling like I had to be perfect when I was at my dad's place. I dunno, maybe I was just a bit too scared of my dad, but I always felt like I was stepping on egg shells there. Sometimes we'd play some vidya, or a board game and have a good time, but mostly I felt like I was being yelled at for nothing. Most of the time it was my mom saying something, and me saying something different. Of course, I was the liar. Either way, the parents didn't have a good relationship with each other. That came to a head and bam, we stop talking. Me and my sister suddenly are without a dad for about a year and a half, maybe two.

    Slowly, we regain contact. Dad breaks up with his long time girlfriend, so we start spending more time together. We start to get a relationship going. Then, he dies. Heart attack while sleeping. Didn't see it coming.

    That...that hurt. I honestly can't say I knew the man well at all. I mean, damn it, all of it was wasted time.

    ...Damn it.

    I empathise a little. My dad is a really great guy, but he has these hang ups. All my mom and sister want are hugs, really, like a few a week would be great, but he can't do it. I think its from having his dad come from the really, really old school landed class from Spain. He doesn't express affection, which makes it hard for him to be close to family. His hospitatlity and sense of humor make him a great friend; his work ethic makes him a great employee, and a fair but demanding boss.

    He is a good example, but he was usually working too hard to spend time at home, and just couldn't connect when he was there.

    That said, I lucked out. He loved camping as a kid, and all of our quality time together was spent in scouting. Without that i feel like I would be where you are.

    You know, my mother got pregnant before they were married. My dad pressured her to get an abortion and she did. Then she got pregnant again, and he married her (as was tradition, I'm not sure if he wanted to, it was too much to have a second abortion). That kid was me. I don't know whether to yell at him for killing my older brother or to try to prove I was worth the rest of his life.

    I'm a naturally forgiving person. Maybe it was because I genuinely tried to forgive my parents for the first decade of my life.

    But I'm not willing to let bygones be bygones until they apologize.

    Considering that these are the same people who didn't allow me to go to my own graduation because of an argument about Cinco de Mayo (I said that it wasn't Mexican Independence Day, they thought it was), the chances are slim to none.

    Wife, car, kids, house, career, he had his ducks in a row by the time he was 20. He'd easily be a millionaire several times over if he hadn't had a family so soon, but he's still well off and doesn't regret his choice one bit. Compared to him I'm moving in slow motion, fumbling, and I know it bothers him because he wants to see me succeed so badly. Sigh.

    When I was a baby, if my dad came into the room I would scream and cry until he left. When I was four my parents broke up. Shortly afterwards my dad had a car accident, hurt his back, but didn't get surgery so he could survive off workcover. On the weekends I would go to his place mostly he would be lying on the floor in pain because of the drive to his place from mine. Eventually I stopped going to his place, the last straw being when I 'found' his porno collection at age eight, I think (It was just lying around on a bookshelf, easy to spot).

    Cut to when I was sixteen, dad decides to out himself as a transgender female. He can't say it to my face, so he gets mum to tell me. I laugh at the stupidity of the situation, then baw my eyes out, and refuse to see him for about two years. By the time I'm 23 he's given up on being a transgendered female, partly due to all the physical dilapidation the whole hormone process causes, and how they causes even more problems for his back. Instead he wants to get into woodworking again, when he is in his fifties and nearly destroyed with arthritis and back injury.
    I'm twenty five now and Dad is just getting over a suicidal episode he had.
    I never want to be in a relationship with anyone, on the chance that I end up repeating all Dad's fuck ups. As it is I'm studying in the same field as he is, and I'm completely paranoid about ruining it all.

    Now that I'm done B'AWWing, I suppose I should explain myself. This thread is ripping me up, because I have this bizarre love/hate relationship with my dad.

    You see, my mom left him when I was just a wee one, because he was a crackhead, and on a few occasions tried to kill us or himself. Some years later, he cleaned himself up in an effort to re-attach himself to her, and to me. But by that time, she'd remarried, and my step-dad was the only dad I needed as far as I was concerned. But he still got custody every few weeks, and I kind of came to terms with all of it.

    He's a total fuckup of a human being. He's crashed and burned so many times that he's just this side of a walking corpse. And on some level, I do love him, but I see in him a grim parody of myself. Every negative aspect of my own personality and every negative habit I have is blown up and distorted in him. I hate him for being all the worst parts of myself, but I'd managed to keep that to myself.

    Until last year, when I had stopped returning his calls. Finally, while I was visiting my grandparents (his parents, who I am close with), he showed up one day. I played it off, saying I'd been busy. Once he got me away from my grandparents (we went to the store or somesuch) he looked me in the eye, and asked: "I've failed you, haven't I?"

    ... And my heart broke. And...I couldn't tell him no. I've prided myself on my ability to lie my whole life, and I couldn't tell the one that matters. All I could do was lower my eyes.

    I've got some advice for anybody who doesn't want to be like this guy's dad.

    First of all, if you're in a car accident and mess up your back, don't refuse to get it checked out just because you want to live oof of workman's comp

    Secondly: don't put your porn on the bookshelf when your eight-year-old son comes to visit

    And, last but not least, if you realize you're a transexual, don't change your way have way through your transition.

    It's not that hard.

    Forced labor could possibly be the ground work for actually rehabilitating people instead of just cramming them in a cell. Teaching them useful skills and such.

    Forced medical testing would obviously only be used on criminals who have exhusted their appeals or have committed crimes that earn them life in prison.

    I am just kind of throwing this stuff out here because the current system sure as fuck isn't about reducing the amount of criminals.

    What I'm saying is that strip away everything in our justice system and you still find that prison does nothing to cure the problem but puts the criminals in a place where to survive they have to be a better criminal.

    When they get out you have a better criminal and if hes been in prison long enough he doesn't know how to adjust to normal life again.

    The people who commit crimes or cause pain, knowingly with full understanding of the consequences, and they had another option that wasn't crime, they aren't the people who will be rehabilitated, they will continue with that way of life, they are sociopaths, plain and simple

    My dad is. . .probably in the middle of the pack. He was a military brat and took parenting and spousing 101 from the man he hated, his dad. Meaning he overreacts, is never wrong, and is generally a chauvinist, with my mom and myself bearing the brunt of it. At the same time, he believes in supporting the family even if it costs the family, kind of like Breaking Bad, so he'd spend all week working, work weekend days, and then come home weekend nights to instill life values in his children in an abrasive manner possible. He has an amazing sense of humor and word play that I'm proud to say I've inherited/learned from him. We've gotten into brawls before, but he's helped me whenever I've needed. I get a definite sense of disappoint concerning my hobbies and ambitions, but I think he accepts me for who I am. We're always going to have a conflicted relationship, but to my surprise I invited him out to drink the other night.

    My father was a world-class foul-up when I was younger. He divorced my mother when I was a year and a half old and would have nothing to do with me. That is, until my mother began getting involved with the man who would be my stepfather, two years later.

    I was too young, I didn't really care, and I thought it was cool to go with my father; they'd had the custody stuff handled during the divorce and he just started picking me up, every other weekend and for an afternoon weekly. He had an old '59 Cadillac that he was always working on, and it was fun for him to drive me around in it, even if I couldn't see over the dash for the most part. It was the most awesome car ever (and met an ignoble end when it was too expensive to keep it running a few years later). We'd watch Knight Rider and eat chocolate pudding or macaroni and cheese or have a glass of chocolate milk.

    But later down the road he decided he was going to file for custody of me when my mother became pregnant with my sister. He had a rough time of things with his stepfather -- all of his sisters were molested, his brothers and himself were beaten, and the guy was an asshole. He himself didn't express anything like this toward me but he'd tell me of things that happened, and I went from thinking my future-stepfather was awesome to being afraid of him. Yet despite it all, my stepfather was patient, and knew that I would eventually get my head straight; things would be okay, in time. He failed that attempt at getting custody, being a single dad, and wasn't able to get reason to have any arrangements changed. I'm not sure how old I was, I don't think I was even in kindergarten yet.

    The second attempt he made was a little while after my stepfather had died when I was in the eighth grade, and they started the paperwork at the end of summer. Apparently this time, with his future-wife, they'd found a sleazy lawyer who knew how to file paperwork in such a way that it gets lost until it's time for court -- I had overheard their conversations about it and told my mother because she'd not heard a single word about it. She went down to the county courthouse and checked, and the secretary found the paperwork after searching exhaustively, mis-filed in a place it shouldn't have been even remotely close to. You don't file custody paperwork in a drawer that belongs to warrants (I should know since part of my job involved maintaining warrants) but at least they did find it. My father and his wife pulled quite a mind-fuck on me, but my brain refused to accept it, and I began considering suicide because I was in such bad shape as well as abusing alcohol and weed (hey, eighth grade, that's big shit at that point but I didn't like hallucinogenics), but I mentioned something to my mother and she recognized it as suicidal thoughts surfacing. But hell, to make themselves look good, they even started going to church.

    I saw the family doctor we'd had from back before he'd even delivered me, got checked in that night on his advice and spent two weeks in the hospital, then a few months outpatient. Honestly, it was just a matter of them being able to help me sort through the bullshit and learn how to cope with that.

    And while I was in there, on the doctor's advice, I called him, told him what I thought of him, and... well, at the time, I was confused. He hung up on me because I told him that I had hated him. I didn't hate him anymore, but I really really really strongly disliked him. In retrospect... I hadn't shown him any signs of this, before. How could he know? And things were pretty cold between us after that. I still went over there for the most part, but my mother and I (and my sister) moved out of state without so much as bothering to tell him we were going. The last time, after all, he'd pulled this shit. I didn't want a repeat and the failure to tell him was on my insistence. He'd sent me letters and called once in a while, but the letters were telling me not to abuse drugs and whatnot. I looked at them, went WTF and threw them out. Only two or three letters were sent and I never wrote back.

    As time went by, we talked on the phone occasionally. Rarely. Then he came and visited. And... he'd changed. With the religious stuff... well, no surprise there, she quit going right off the bat and so did her kids. But for some reason, he didn't. He kept going. He attended some parenting classes. He realized where he'd gone wrong and how badly he'd fucked up. And he was so very sorry that he had messed me up when he should have been there for me instead.

    It took me a long time, but I forgave him, and it was not an easy thing to do. I eventually moved back up to where I used to live, and for a while stayed at his house, and stayed in contact too. I haven't been good at staying in contact, though. And then a bunch of insane things happened and I ended back up where we'd moved to in the first place.

    I'll call him, in the morning. I don't know why I've been putting it off. Thank you, /tg/.

    Since innocent anons are getting flack for my own little sob story, I'll make the situation a little more clear.

    When my parents finally admitted to themselves that they couldn't 'fix' me my father kicked me out when I was 17. I had $100 some odd dollars in my purse, was going to high school, and had a part time job at McDonalds in a town with a population in the hundreds. A part time job at a local fast food place in a town near a major highway between two larger cities has some pretty high rents. So, off to do the whole crashing at friends on a semi regular basis. Finally found a place to stay, with some older kids (20 is still a kid) but they did drugs.

    Druggies start not trusting you if you don't partake, and homeless in a small town vs. trying some H and having a place to live was not a hard choice. Wasn't too long before I was doing other stuff to support my habit and my rent. Only took 5 years before Ii nearly get myslef killed. Spent most of six months in state custody rehab.

    As a kid, my dad and I never hit it off. We would go out, try to have fun, but he would get far too pissed off for me or something and I would go back to my mom's house (they were divorced). On the other hand, my sister despised my mom and always enjoyed time with our dad.

    It eventually got to a point where I would stop seeing him for weeks or months on end, refusing to even talk to him on the phone. I just didn't care about him. While my sister would go out with my dad, learning how to drive, ect, I would stay at home either doing homework or doing jack shit on the computer.

    Then, sometime around 7th grade, my mother had a long talk with him about how I was starting to lose all interest in him. I don't know how it happened, but from that point on we started spending much more time together. Sometimes he would just pick me up in his car, and we would drive around for an hour or two just talking, eventually parking infront of the lake and eating cheap junk food. At one point I became very dehydrated for whatever reason, and had to stay home the entire weekend in bed while my mom, stepdad, and sister had to go to ski lessons. That whole weekend my dad stayed with me, taking care of me. We even read some passages of the Zombie Survival Guide together.

    About 2-3 weeks later, my mom walked in and told me my dad died. He has suffered a terrible back injury as a policemen, and had numerous surgeries to try and fix it. His last one required strong medication, and he drank some wine with it, which ended up killing him. Apparently, he died falling head-first into the toilet.

    Life is a bitch.

    Spent the next few years in a little studio apartment, working retail, keeing to myself and stuggling with the lovely things heroin does to your body and mind. Had a couple of one night stands, but otherwise alone, no computer, no friends worthy of the name. Read a whole bunch, scribbled stories on notebooks, taught myslef to draw badly.

    I was at the library pickijg up another stack of books and saw a guy in the study room. Sitting on a chair, legs folded into what looked painful position. I went and read a book waiting for the bus. He sat therre for two hours, and the got up and met a couple of other guys and a girls, all carrying the large flat books or backpacks. They comandeered a table and started rolling dice, talking quietly while this skinny guy who sat doing nothing for 2 hours set up a screen and spoke to them with a smile. I wandered over, curious, and sat in on my first session of AD&D and met an actual zen master.

    My dad's an EX alcoholic/drug addict who now has paranoia disorder/OCD due to massive alcoholism and cocaine abuse. He's been off coke for like 20+ years but alcoholism for only 19.

    He has moments of being genuinely nice, has always offered to help me with women, but most of the time he's fucking insane or just off the wall or yelling at someone in the family about something that is most likely his fault.

    I still care about him, and I don't wish him any harm however I know I'll be a better father because of him, and I will never let any kind of substance alter my mind and ruin a potentially happy relationship with my kids.

Sure, I could have easily slit their throats and I fantasized about it every night. I wouldn't have felt guilty in the least, but you still respect your goddamn parents.

    Daddy's little girl merely tells us that her parents kicked her out and expects us to side with her. Who knows why they kicked her out? But I know that parents won't kick you out before you turn 18 unless you do something horrible. Trust me, my parents have made that empty threat often enough that I know that there are far too many legal problems for it to be worthwhile.

    Now mind you, inall that time, I lived in the same small town, got arrested, hospitialized, kicked an addiction, whored myself, and got a goddamned clue, there had been no attempt to find me, contact me, or write a letter. I wasn't hiding, I know the cops contacted my parents, I had a phone number listing, the whole works. So I find out my dad is dying from cancer from my parent's neighbor, go to the hospital, and look at a haggard, wheezing wreck of a man and his tragic housewife.

    My father left when I was five. Physically, that is. Emotionally, he was barely around as a parent to begin with.

    Mom woke me up the night he left. It was late. He said he was going to get a haircut. I didn't know why he was telling me this after bedtime, or why mom was crying.

    That was twenty years ago.

    For a few years there were the usual court-mandated weekend visits, plus holiday custody. The weekend visits slowly turned into every other weekend, the holiday visits stopped, and eventually I stopped seeing him around the time I was supposed to enter highschool.

    Every year since then, he called and left a message for me on my birthday.

    Last month, after listening to his yearly message, I called him back and, after a short conversation, asked him not to call me anymore.

    While I can appreciate the thought of mending fences and staying in touch with parents, I don't have that option. I have an emotionally detached, estranged father that never really gave a damn about his son. I don't have a dad.

    I've known a couple others (lol internet) in Texas, Oregon and Ontario who had been kicked out for various reasons.

    Don't lay the blame solely on the kid. Sometimes, parents do illogical things too. One turned her daughter over to state care after the exorcism didn't stop her from writing down stories in notebooks or drawing art; one was in fact kicked out by his mother for being gay, and had to move in with his grandparents who remain in the dark because he's afraid they'll kick him out too.

    I tell them I understand why they did it, why they didn't want to see me or hear from me. I tell my dying father it's okay - no, I didn't forgive him - and I understand what it was all about.

    I tell my father and mother I love them - no hugs, no tears on ~my~ face - and leave.

    Because, what the fuck do you say to people who don't want you in their life because you're not what they wanted you to be? You either turn vicious, or you tell them you understand and respect their wishes, and admit that you still love them even if they can't be bothered to spare a passing glance to you in the middle of the hell that is life in a small town.

    As for all you people saying "you're a stupid cunt and you're fucked up and you're a bitch".....what did you expect? A well adjusted human being? A normal person? Someone with only kindness and love in their heart after living through a slice of hell and coming out pretty okay for a twisted, semi-psychotic freak?

    Geez, it's not like your parents are obligated to accept you if you choose to actively go against their wishes and pursue whatever irrational bullshit you think you want at the time. There's nothing wrong with being a productive member of society. There is everything wrong with being a crackwhore because daddy wasn't nice enough to you.

    When you reject the social mores/standards of people or society, don't be surprised when they reject you in turn, you vapid whore.

    In short, fuck you, ALL of your problems are self-inflicted. Had you lived an honorable life I might have some measure of sympathy for you, harlot.

    Actually no, the aunt turned out to be a total bitch and she was technically homeless for a good long time because of it, the only thing the aunt didn't do that the mom did was threaten her with a cleaving knife.

    Technically, by which I mean she would crash at friends' places. No, she didn't end up a junkie whore, but your other point is rendered invalid. Good night.

    At least she had the courtesy to say "it's okay, I know you kicked me out because you didn't like what I was" and tell her parents she loved them.

    You know what? Your dad was probably a decent guy, you were just too fucking stupid, vapid and selfish to realize what you did to him with your bullshit lifestyle choices. You were too fucking introverted to spare some empathy and understanding on your own fucking father, instead choosing to wallow in self-pity and bad life choices ("If I fuck myself up, it's like I'm getting back at DADDY, TOTALLY AMIRITE?")

    And yes, you made a decision to live the way you did. I was homeless too, and I didn't start fucking around like that, and I damn sure didn't fuck my life up because of it. Know what I did? I grew the fuck up and moved on with my life.

    Finally, if I have a child who chooses to be homosexual, that's fine. Beyond that, they can choose to either abide by my standards and rules or get the fuck out. I do not have to put up with someone else's fuckups. Sure, I'd love them, but I am not going to aid and abet someone who wants to break the law and live dishonorably. If they love me back, they can fucking show a baseline level of fucking respect and not act like impudent fucking children at an age where it just isn't appropriate anymore.

    Exactly. I feel no regret defending one's right to live according to one's own standards. The only exception I as an individual have a right to take is that of opposing the violation of others' right to the same freedom - each human life is owed the chance for self-determination.

    Don't get me wrong - I'm not some inane left-swung hippie carrying on about how we can't judge each other or anything. Indeed, that would only be weakness. If we are all to live our own lives with our own values, we must all have sufficient confidence in them to endure criticism and judgment from those who do not share our values. To that end, >>9309459

    The point is, live. Live such a life that you don't feel dissatisfaction in moments of reflection - and if you do, change something. Never fear to take your own direction, and never fear what others might think of that - accept the positive reception, roll with the negative, but never allow yourself to follow a beaten path unless you feel satisfied with doing so. Find what you love and live it. That's all anyone needs to know.

    I haven't any regrets....not even about the previous parts of my life. It seems to upset you a whole lot more than it upsets me. Which is pitiful, really. You consider me to be less than you because I made some bad life choices and learned to grow far, far beyond them? Or is it that I made my poor dying daddy cry because I loved him and my mother more than they ever loved me?

    Remorse for telling them that I understood why they'd disown me? Remorse for telling them I loved them? Remorse for accepting they didn't want me and walking back out of my life so they can get on with their lives? Remorse for what, exactly?

    Dignity....oh, I see. I'm less than you because you're using your honor and dignity as a shield to protect you from the cruel realities of life. Did you steal? Did you beg? Did you sleep in the cold and rain? I am glad your honor and dignity are intact.

    Perhaps you missed the second sentence of that very post, but the violation of others' right to their own freedom of determination is abhorrent and disgusting to me. A person burdened by caring for an ungrateful addict can't pursue their own life very effectively, can he?

    You're quite right - leaving other people to pick up the pieces of one's selfish excesses is distasteful and unbecoming. Living for one's own happiness in life does not mean one should expect to get away with living it to the exception of others. If one inflicts one's lifestyle on others as a detriment or a burden, that is certainly to be opposed.

    Living for oneself does not validate living on the backs of others.

    Make whatever judgments about me that you want, like I said, I could care less about your opinions, you're sub-human as far as I'm concerned.

    I don't hang out with lepers because I don't want leprosy. It's common sense, no self-righteousness or insanity involved.

    You want to knife socialfag and leave him in a ditch.

    And make sure he's dead so his government provided health insurance does not ensure he recovers.

    Thanks for telling me what to think. Socialfag, would it be alright with you if I use a hatchet instead of a knife? Knifes bend surprisingly easily in the rib cage.

    The strength to choose the hard right over the easy wrong.

    The will to overcome impossible odds, even when being told you cannot possibly succeed.

    The fortitude to stand against the world, holding on to what you know to be true and just in spite of lies and illusions.

    That is humanity. All else is superfluous. Some of you are going to spout some nonsense about "mercy" or "kindness," or "love," but you're wrong. There's a reason Aristotle designated courage as the prime virtue. Without the ability to stand for something, any emotions or desires you feel are meaningless.

    So what you're saying is, you fear that if you spend time around people who think differently than you do, you might begin to think differently? I find it amusing that you're comparing differences in ideologies with a disease.

    But surely anyone possessed of self-belief has little to fear from association with those who believe differently? Surely a man with strong values needn't fear his own confidence in them being shaken by different thinking? Hell, I go to church every Sunday with my mother and have wonderfully intriguing discussions with one of the pastors, and I'm a bloody atheist. Why do I go? Because I enjoy the company and the fun, and I have no doubt in my own beliefs. There's no threat in my associating with these people who think so differently than I.

    Ideas, lifestyles, etc. Aren't contagious per se but if you ardently disagree with someone, have nothing in common with them and don't like them as a person, what possible reason do you have to spend time with/around them?

    Better to separate yourself from their nonsense and find yourself on your own terms than to seek identity from people who have none on their own.

    This is a lovely philosophy you've posted.

    I wonder how a 17 year old would react when everything he is told is 'proper and correct' is instead not only a lie, but the most bitter lie that has ever been told.

    "God is merciful, just, and loves all people equally, especially his chosen people. Your parents will love you no matter what. Your home is a safe place. You can always come back home, and while you might be disciplines, you will always be welcome. Parents look for their children when their children are in trouble."

    Being brought up in the household you were in, DLG might have turned out quite differently.

    I'm not asking about an alternative. I practice an alternative. I'm asking if you were 17 when you developed this philosophy. Because it's a great philosophy. I just highly doubt that you were 17 when you adopted it.

    Not really, considering they do the same to me. Turnabout is fair play.

    It's less about passing judgement and more about just not caring, honestly. I wouldn't have cared about the crackwhore's story were it not for the fact that it was offered up in a plea for sympathy, that was when it admittedly struck a chord, but I'm not a sociopathic misanthrope or anything. I really just don't care about most people.

    This is the fundamental failing of absolutist moral systems - there isn't any such construct that can both provide functional solutions to all the problems one can reliably expect to have in life (or even all the relatively common or simple ones) and also manage to do so without contradiction or error. Either it's so simplistic or vague as not to apply well on any sort of scale, or it's rife with contradictions and outright errors and untruths.

    No system of absolutes can adequately codify human behaviour and values. There simply is no means.

    First sentence in the little crackwhore's story.:

    >Since innocent anons are getting flack for my own little sob story, I'll make the situation a little more clear.

    Sympathy isn't all that precious to her, from what she's said in the past.
    >> Anonymous 04/20/10(Tue)05:39 No.9310107

    Fair enough. That said, the assumption is no more correct just because you're not the only one making it - after all, you clearly have a self-determined identity, yes? Anyone saying otherwise is obviously in error. Why, then, would you not be in error by saying the same about anyone else?

    Why is 17 some sort of magical number to you? I'm not even sure what you're getting at with this. Are you accusing me of being immature/underage or are you attempting to have some sort of serious discussion here?
    >> Anonymous 04/20/10(Tue)05:41 No.9310122
    Not surprising that a 17 year old would find such a moral system failing at that point. Might lead them to making some mistakes in their life. Not everyone is as infallible as angryanon claims to be.

    Am I the only one who noticed that crackwhore never actually said she was a lesbian? The closest she got was the ambiguous statement, "Daddy's little girl like other daddy's[sic] little girls" which means that she was a daddy's little girl like other daddys' little girls, not that she likes other girls. It's the rest of /tg/ that assumed she was a lesbian and she was more than willing to go along with it.

    Because if at 17 that philosophy was your core living philosophy and you were rendered homeless and destitute at that age your claim or moral superiority might have some validity. I personally have doubts that you were homeless and destitute at the age of 17.

    If a tree bears bad fruit. It's probably a fucked up tree. Likewise, if a person has a bad lifestyle, does bad things, and is just generally fucked up all the time. It's safe to assume they're fucked up as well. Granted, it's not 100% but nothing ever is. It isn't unfair to make subjective judgments based on someone's actions or patterns of actions.

    Well then, In answer to your question, yes. I've generally always had this worldview ever since I was old enough to care about these things, but yeah, shortly after my 17th birthday the shit did hit the fan in regards to my life and living situation(s). I can tell the story if you want but I am not going to throw a pity-party on 4chan.

    Actually, I can, and that is my point of contention.

    If angryfag was destitute and homeless at 17 as crackwhore claimed to be (because he has already stated he has been homeless and destitute but provided no age) and used his superior morals to survive it then I am willing to admit his claim of moral superiority over crackwhore. Crackwhore stated she made bad decisions at that or near the age of 17 (and who has not?) but those decisions are what angryanon claims make her a worthless person and allows him to claim moral superiority.

    I am curious if his superior moral philosophy had fully developed at the same age she was forced to deal with situations of familial rejection, homelessness and destitution or if his homelessness and destitution were an occurrence that happened after that age and after he had developed his morally superior philosophy.

    He was a drow from the underdark, but his parents disapproved of him because he displayed chaotic good tendencies instead of chaotic evil. He left the underdark (when he was seventeen) and was immediately persecuted by racist humans. But he found a talisman that allows him to turn into a wolferret at will. He rides around on rollerblades and wields a katana and shurikens (he doesn't take a penalty for using them without exotic weapon proficiency because they're ancestral).

    There, he's almost as much of a sue as crackwhore.

    /tg/ I was almost certain about joining the military after this summer, but after reading through this thread I almost can't. I told my parents and even though they said they would support me, you could see so much disappointment and sadness in their eyes. Thank you for making me feel like I can cry again. I'm going to go home this weekend.
