I had to see my father for the first time in years because of a funeral. I didnt speak to him or indicate I was open to him speaking to me.
He refuses to accept my lack of religion, and I certainly don't will never accept his politics.
Anyone else had to disassociate with family over religion?
I didn’t necessarily cut her out so much as challenge her ridiculous behavior and let her know that if she had a problem with me, she was free to gtfo. It all happened on FB and she was stalking my posts (on my own page) and reporting random things that she was “offended” by. I remember the last one was a meme I shared telling people to google something (I think it was your name) and post the third image. Mine ended up being a drawing of a female centaur that had a tiny bit of side boob showing (no nip) and she reported it as nudity.
I've got one cousin who was one of my favorite relations until she started guzzling the hardshell fundamentalist Kool-Aid. I just kind of quietly slipped away from dealing with her, and there's been no resulting drama. Irony is that she is also one of the smartest and best educated of the bunch. Go figure.
