by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

You had one very twisted, perverted and sadistic mother. And yes, your father most definitely was an enabler and could have kept you safe from harm. They are BOTH responsible for what happened to you. You are likely affected in ways that most cannot fathom as a result of her hatred and twisted perversions. But don't EVER believe it was you. It wasn't you at all. SHE was the one with serious mental problems. SHE was the one to blame. You were perfect as you were, John. Always remember that. And please consider some form of counseling in order to help you deal with the repercussions of coming from such terrible abuse. You deserve that kind of help. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

The sooner, the better...Darlene is right!

John, I agree with Darlene. Your "mother" (well, if you still want to call her that) is a truly sadistic, disgusting, perverted, warped, confused, uneducated, unloving, ignorant, uncaring, animalistic, barbaric, cruel, psychotic, insane, ruthless beast and she should be locked up in prison with her slimy husband together for all those disgusting and terrible crimes that they (especially that sicko of a mother) committed against you, so the sooner you tell someone, the better.

John, first of all, your mom is deeply troubled and sick. Second of all, speaking of her sexist comments about boys, while making sexist comments about girls is bad enough, making equally sexist comments about boys is honestly mean and disgusting because boys should be loved and cherished as much as girls. When I was born, my dad originally wanted a boy, but he got me instead (I'm a girl, BTW) and, believe it or not, he loves me with all his heart; to torment, berate and, in general, reject you just because your mom wanted a girl instead of a boy is totally ignorant!!!
