And, on the occasion that I DID break them... my parents didn't kick me out of the house and change the locks.
I don't know, if you broke the rule and were not punished that sounds inconsistent to me. Also, my example was not a child living at home, but an adult still with their parents.
But then... my parents loved me. Even when I sometimes disagreed with them.
I hope so. But then...maybe you didn't push too hard. The attempt to justify normalizing gay lifestyle is pushing too hard here.
I wouldn't worry too much though, reasonable people understand reason.
Too often, IMO, on this site... reasonable people don't get a CHANCE to understand reason. They get BOOTED before they get a chance.
That was my point.
