because my parents were not like the other mormons, our family wasn't. We never fit in. I tried really hard to fit in. Never did. The best I fit in was when I was with my gay husband and we were active mormon as he knew how to play the mormon culture game. He is still considered mormon royalty and I'm not. (I need to look up that list again.)
My dad was as not mormon man as you can get, thank goodness. He had his issues for sure, but he was the strongest, most what you see is what you get man you'd ever meet. Since he died, there has been a huge void in all our lives in terms of we always knew we had this MAN who everyone feared and so nobody dared touch us.
My mother was the oldest daughter of 2 deaf parents. She had been their voice from a very young age and she was not social, especially growing up under those circumstances.
So I always thought we were the strange family and then I grew up and found out we weren't the strange family, we were the normal family. Most of us are out. I was the one who tried to live it more than any of the rest. My daughter is the only TBM of all the grandchildren/great-grandchildren (of course it had to be my daughter). My active moron sister, all her children are out. She went to my daughter's wedding while I was outside with her children and grandchildren.
The real world is so much friendlier to me than moronism ever was.
