Things my dad said to me tonight:
He started this whole conversation with “I am supportive of what you want, but…”
If you become a teacher or a dance therapist, you will not be living the way you live now,
If you go into marketing, you have a chance to make it big. You can’t make it big with teaching or dance therapy.
The guys in the neighborhood don’t do what you want to do to make money. I guess you could go into those professions and your husband could have a higher paying career…but…(Who says my wife/ won’t have a high paying job and that I will be unable to support myself?)
You haven’t done what you cousin has done. You haven’t gotten published anywhere.
Obviously he is not being supportive. He said that he wants me to look at things with a critical and realistic eye. He also said he didn’t realize why this was such a sensitive issue. Why does he think I had so many problems in high school? I’m too critical of myself. I will prove my dad wrong someday, but his bullshit makes me want to curl up and give up.

As long as my father doesn’t talk about his “masculinity,” this is a good trip.
