Confessions of a Child Abuse Survivor, or, why forgiving and forgetting isn’t an option for some of us


Content Warning: Mentions instances of child abuse and animal cruelty. Reader discretion is advised.


I was raised by an extremely racist, angry, reactionary man who was physically, verbally, and emotionally abusive to his wife and children. Sometimes when I have mentioned this some people have felt the need to chime in to dismiss my description. So I will just mention that one time, when my at-the-time four-year-old sister wound up in the hospital with a fractured skull because of one of his beatings, and she accidentally mentioned to one of the medical personnel that he had been hitting her, and thus all of the family were interviewed by someone from the state department of child protective services, that afterward to punish my sister for not sticking to the lie he drilled into us on the way to the hospital (but knowing that authorities were now watching the family), he made us watch him kill the family cat while he explained to my sister that it was her fault the cat had to die like that.

So don’t you dare tell me that my father wasn’t an abusive evil being.

A bit over five years ago my father died. The last time I spoke to him was about seven years before his death. He had called me. I tried to remain civil during the call. The first time he went off on a rant using the n-word and a number of other racial slurs, I interrupted and reminded him that I have previously said I would hang up when he talked like that. He tried to argue that he was entitled to his opinions. I replied that while he was entitled to his opinions, I was not obligated to listen.

He muttered a half-hearted agreement and changed the subject.

But it wasn’t long until he went off on another similar screed–this one a bit worse because he suggested that murdering a particular African-American politician would be a good idea. Again I reminded him that if he insisted on talking like that, I would hang up on him. Once again, he muttered a half-hearted non-apology and tried to change the subject. I tried to lighten the topic even further…

But again, it wasn’t long until he was using several racial slurs while complaining about something he’d heard about on Fox News. I tried to interrupt but he started talking faster. So I raised my voice and said, "I told you if you keep talking like that I would hang up. I’m hanging up now, and if you try to call back I will not answer."

And I hung up.

He tried calling a few times that night. I didn’t answer.

He never tried calling again.

Some years later his sister called to tell me he was dying. She also said he couldn’t take any calls because he couldn’t hear well enough to understand. Which was fine be me, because I didn’t want to talk to him. Of course, a few days later for complicated reasons she was shouting into my voice mail how my next older sister’s persistence in trying to call him to say good-bye had forced them to remove the phone from his room so she couldn’t talk to him again, and now none of his "real friends" could call to say good-bye.

I had been relieved the day before when the same aunt said he couldn’t take calls. But I admit I was extremely pissed to find out that that was a lie, and that people on that side of the family were choosing to exclude some of us. Which I know is weird, because I didn’t want to talk to him. But my sister had wanted to. And she did (and because my sister always calls everyone on speakerphone no matter where she is, I have two reliable witnesses who say that he clearly could hear and understand her, that he knew it was her, and so forth).

The morning that I got the message that Dad had died, I was a bit shocked at just how overwhelming the sense of relief that came over me was. I had thought that I had mostly been over all the bad feelings from him for years, but I wasn’t.

Since he died, every Fathers’ Day, every anniversary of his birthday, and every anniversary of his death has brought a resurgence of that feeling of relief. I never have to talk to him again. I never have to deal with his BS again. So in some corners of the web I make a comment. And in some parts of my real life I make a comment.

Sometimes, people express the opinion that it isn’t healthy for me to continue to be glad that the abusive man who beat me severely for years–whose beatings sent me to the emergency room more than once, who sometimes made me watch him beat my siblings or my mother as an object lesson–is dead. I try to be civil when I say, "It makes me feel better to remember he’s gone."

I don’t know if I always succeed.

There is a myth perpetrated in our society that the only way to recover from bad experiences is to forgive and forget. It is not true. First, no one is ever, under any circumstances, obligated to forgive. At a minimum, the only point where forgiveness should become a consideration is if the offender makes a genuine expression of remorse and a reasonable attempt to make amends. Even in those circumstances, forgiveness is not required.

When they never acknowledge that anything they did was wrong, let alone never ask for forgiveness, then forgiveness isn’t even recommended.

There are times that I honestly wish I could forget some of the horrid things he did and said to me when I was a child. I don’t want to remember those things. Truly, I don’t.

But…

Remembering those things has allowed me to recognize other abusive people who have come into my life. It was allowed me to put a bit of a barrier between myself and those abusive people. It has several times been a major benefit, as I had not allowed myself to become so entangled in the abusive person’s actions when for social reason I am required to occasionally have contact.

We learn through experience. And no matter how unpleasant the experience is, we should never reject the lesson the experience teaches us. So, no, I will not forget how awful my father was. I will not forget the pain he caused me, my siblings, nor my mother.

Those who forget evil are doomed to repeat it.

Confessions of a Reluctant Tent Pole, or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Make the Perfect Martini


I keep having thoughts that are too long to go into a tweet, but that I’m not sure are enough for a blog post. So I don’t write them down at all. Which has resulted in many weeks where they only thing posted to my blog has been the Friday Five posts.

I’ve resolved that I need to get back to posting things, especially if they are not about troubling news stories and the like.

I rhetorically asked on twitter recently: "Is there any better way to kick off a night of editing than with an ice cold martini made with Botanist gin, Noilly-Pratt vermouth, chilled to near freezing?"

The reason I had such an ice cold martini ready to go that evening requires a bit of a story. During the last year and a half at work we have frequently had software release days that had way too much in common with a marathon. Part of the issue is that there are a few of us (I’m the only technical writer in our entire division, for instance) who are on every single project. So I am the one who finalizes and releases all of the documents related to a particular release, right?

And no matter how I try to get any of the documents done early, there are always some last minute changes that are deemed show stoppers. And some details that need to go into the Release Notes, in particular, can not be known until the final build artifacts are finished. So I’m usually up late on these days, scrambling to get things done.

Our group currently only has one Project Manager, and she has to send out the official release notification, which can’t be done until I have uploaded all of the finalized documents to the official locations. She is in the Eastern Time Zone, while I’m in the Pacific Time Zone. Which means that if I don’t get finished until 9pm, she isn’t finishing until after midnight.

We had a particularly bad couples of weeks a while back with two or three releases in each of the two weeks, which meant a lot of very late nights for some of us. (I should mention that we have managed to make the process slightly more rational since, so the really late nights are happening less often). Back to those two weeks. It was very cranky-making, so on the Friday of the second week, having had four previous recent nights were I was working until at least 9pm, I really felt I needed a reward to look forward to when we completed the work.

There was a moment in the early evening were I had finished the more that a dozen other documents and uploaded them, when I was informed by one of the engineering managers that it would be at least an hour before they could give me the last remaining details of the Release Notes. So I headed into the kitchen to start dinner cooking, and made myself a martini.

I mixed up one of my usual 8 parts gin to 1 part dry vermouth in one of my metal cocktail shakers full of ice, and then stuck the shaker and its contents into the freezer to wait.

I got this idea from an interview some years ago of Sir Roger Moore. Because Moore had played James Bond for many years, he was more than occasionally asked about his favorite way to make a martini. He was specifically interviewed on that subject at least once on the occasion of World Martini Day. At that point, Moore mentioned that for health reasons he could no longer drink alcohol, but he explained the process, which included putting the shaker full of ice and the mixed alcohol into a freezer for a minimum of two hours. He made the suggestion that if you followed his recipe, that you put at least two olives on the garnish, so that when you had finished the drink you could offer one olive to him, and thus give him a taste.

The week that Moore died, I searched out that interview and mixed myself a martini his way, including keeping it in the freezer to two hours.

It was so, so delicious!

Since that one evening, I often on software release days mix up a martini in the late afternoon and stick it in the freezer to way to serve in a chilled glass once we’re finished and I have logged out of the work network.

I mentioned that my usual martini is an 8-to-1 mix. And it’s always gin and dry vermouth. If you’re making it with vodka it is not, IMHO, a martini. And it’s not thus me, the official ANSI standard for martinis agrees: ANSI STANDARD K100.1-1974: SAFETY CODE AND REQUIREMENTS FOR DRY MARTINIS.

That document heavily prefers a 16-to-1 ratio. I’ve made martinis to that ratio and they are good. I happen to like a good vermouth, and also since I’m usually serving myself my martinis in a classic coup glass or a nick and nora glass–which only hold a bit more the 3 ounces of cocktail–it’s just not easy to measure out the vermouth in a teeny enough quantity to make it work.

My favorite gin for a martini has been The Botanist for a while, and my favorite vermouth is Noilly Pratt. The Botanist is about twice as expensive per ounce as my next favorite and several other acceptable brands, so I often make martinis with one of the other gins. I really like olives, so I usually garnish with one or three olives. My favorite olives for martinis are San Diego Olive Company Pimento Olives, by the way.

There are several gins that do not go well with the briny taste of olive (New Amsterdam, Roku, and Brockmans) so if I’m using one of those for my martini I garnish with a twist of lemon or a twist of lime.

The fun thing about last week’s software release day is, that during my lunch break I mixed up the martini and shoved it in the freezer compartment of our fridge, assuming it was going to be one of those late nights. But when I got back to my computer, all of the other work from other departments was finished. So we managed to release whole thing before 2pm my time, which was before 5pm for the project manager.

The martini wound up sitting in the freezer for a bit over 7 hours before I poured it and took my first sip.

And it was delicious!

Tuesday Tidbits: Liars who lie to everyone

Remembering the 11th day of the 11th month…

Remembering the 11th day of the 11th month…


I have previously written about my pet peeve about certain people here in the U.S. turning every even slightly patriotic holiday into a day to thank veterans for their service. That is not what you’re supposed to do on Memorial Day (or as my grandmother always called it, Decoration Day), and most veterans will be mildly annoyed if you do on that day, since that day is meant to honor the dead, not the living.

But today is the holiday where you are supposed to thank veterans for their service!

So, thank you!

Americans have called it Veteran’s Day since 1954 — a day to honor those who have served in the military. Our allies still refer to this holiday by its original name: Armistice Day or Remembrance Day. We Americans barely study World War I in public school history classes, and when we do, it seldom includes the whole story: How did the first world war actually end?

November 11, 1918 was the day that the peace accord went into effect ending what was then called The Great War. And so each year after we set aside a day to honor those who served, to remember their sacrifices, and pledge to work to prevent wars from happening. At least that’s what we used to say. Since the U.S. came into the Great War later than the other countries, and it wasn’t fought on our territory, and the number of U.S. troops killed was a small fraction of the casualty totals of the war, we have never looked at Armistice Day quite the way our allies did. WWII was what loomed large for us, culturally.

In the U.S. this holiday is described as a day to honor and thank veterans for their military service. To me, one of the ways we ought to thank them for their service is to find ways to end wars and bring them home. Unfortunately I get the feeling from certain politicians and pundits that trying to find ways to start even more wars is what they are interested in doing.

Regardless, if you want to show support for those who served, may I humbly suggest donating to National Coalition for Homeless Veterans.

Tuesday Tidbits: Liars who lie to everyone


Time for some items that I don’t think should wait until Friday, and which I want to comment upon a bit more.

Rachel Maddow: ‘One Of The Dirtiest Tricks’ Of The 2020 Election Exposed In FBI Raid – click image to go to the video Rachel Maddow: 'One Of The Dirtiest Tricks' Of The 2020 Election Exposed In FBI Raid

So, the first news tidbit is about notorious liar and creep, James O’Keefe. For some context: O’Keefe first came to the public’s eye back in 2008 when he and a couple of confederates would disguise themselves as various people to sneak hidden cameras into meeting with organizations they deemed as liberal, film their long and outrageous conversations, then edit them down to shorter videos that seemed to make the liberal organization to be admitting to weird things. He was sued by some of the individuals whose reactions he distorted, and had to settle a few times. At another point he disguised himself as a telephone technician in order to get into the office of a Democratic Senator and attempt to tap the phones. He wound up pleading guilty to a misdemeanor over that one. And he is currently the co-defendant in two legal cases in which two different states are charging him with voter intimidation.

Which brings us to the story Rachel Maddow talks about in the video above. If you want a short text version of the story: Did James O’Keefe Spy Thugs Burgle Ashley Biden’s Diary? Because That’s F*cking Gross

O’Keefe has issued a video describing the FBI raids as federal overreach. Since we have about 13 years of documented non-stop lies from this guy, you’ll understand why I’m not taking his word for it. He asserts the claim once again that he’s just a journalist trying to seek the truth, but… Federal Judge Rules It ‘Fair’ to Characterize Project Veritas as ‘Political Spying’

I mean, remember, one of his other past attempts at "journalism" was to try to lure a reported on a boat where he had staged a bunch of sex toys and lube and so forth with lots of hidden cameras. He was certain that he would be able to seduce the reporter, and then release the resulting sex video to the public and ruin her career. So, you can see why virtually no one refers to his organization as a news source…

Moving on…

I should begin this with the admission that for as long as I have been watching Aaron Rodgers play quarterback for the Packers that I have disliked him. In all of his public appearances he comes across as a smug a-hole and jerk. Long before the moment in a recent game when after running in a touchdown he screamed various obscenities at a woman who was a fan of the other team in the front row of the stands.

Anyway, turns out that when Rodgers told people (including the NFL and his fellow players) that he’d been vaccinated against COVID that he was lying: At least Rolovich was honest; not so with Packers’ Rodgers

So now he is sick. He may have infected teammates, staff, and fans during the time he was carrying the virus and before his positive test. And there is at least one former player and Football Hall of Famer who feels almost as strongly about this as me: Terry Bradshaw Blasts Aaron Rodgers: ‘You Lied To Everyone’ – “It would have been nice if he had just come to the Naval Academy and learned how to be honest. Learned not to lie. Because that’s what you did, Aaron. You lied to everyone," said Hall-of-Fame quarterback Terry Bradshaw,

I want to emphasize: deciding not to get vaccinated is not a deeply personal choice. Getting vaccinated is an ordinary, minimal responsibility of anyone living in society. And at this point more than 3 BILLION doses of the vaccines have been safely given to people. So we already know that it is far, far, far, far safer than the disease anti-vaxxers are willing to catch.

Not getting vaccinated doesn’t mean you’re brave. Not being vaccinated means you don’t care if you infect and kill other people.

Friday Five (who can’t take a joke edition)


We have reached the first Friday in November, and I am well into my project for this year’s National Novel Writing Month, a.k.a. NaNoWriMo

This has not been a fun week. The first couple of days of the week I thought I was having very severe hay fever. It’s the right time of year for ferns to start sporing around here, and my hay fever is always worst the first few days that a new-for-this-year pollen/spore/mold is in the air. I didn’t think about the fact that since my doctor put me on the new prescription allergy med last winter I have had almost no severe hay fever days. Anyway, my husband came home from work Tuesday with all the symptoms I had and a report that nearly half of his co-workers called in sick that day. The next morning we both had a fever. So far as I can tell, it’s just a run-of-the-mill cold, but still, I’ve been congested and rundown all week.

Anyway, it’s time for this week’s Friday Five in which I bring you: one story about treasures, two stories of the WTF is wrong with people type, the top five stories of the week, five stories of interest to queers and our allies, and five stories about haters, traitors and other deplorable people.
