Of course you are. It's right there in your username, so it must be true.

It's not like you included that to be misleading or anything, am i rite?

Believe me, I am less of an angel now than I was when I first registered.

I was so young and (somewhat) sheltered back then.

Let me ask you: are both your parents of Italian descent? If so, was it them that sheltered you? Were they born in the States or in Italy? Are they particularly traditional in their thinking?

My mom is the Italian, and she's very cool. Neither of them really sheltered me, and looking back, I was never really "sheltered" per se as more of it being my own doing. Does that make sense?

Are both of your parents Italian, and did you get that kind of treatment, even though you're a male?

Well, that's what I was getting at actually. Both my parents are Italian, but I know that they treated me differently because I'm a male. I know for a fact that most families would definitely take a harder line with their daughters. I was just curious if this was the case with you, because you mentioned the word "sheltered".

My Dad is Hungarian - most passive fuckers you'll ever want to meet.

Haven't talked to him in about two weeks, no immediate plans to.

Oh, and when Laura drops by - Barack is speaking in Grand Rapids on Wednesday, which is a long haul for me to dirve so I'm going to have to miss out.

Somehow I knew you'd pop up during this discussion.


What about you? Do you think your parents sheltered you more because you're a woman?

I'm interested in this, because in Montreal, the vast majority of Italian families—and most Mediterranean households (see My Big Fat Greek Wedding for an example) for that matter—have retained traditions and values from the "old country." I've been rebelling against this mentality for years, because I think that it's causing a lot of people to grow up with a skewed sense of reality. Most Italian moms, for example, really overdo it by doing absolutely everything, from cooking to cleaning, for their children (usually their sons). This causes them not to learn about the "real world" and can have far-reaching consequences later in life.

Case in point: I moved out at 24, and I didn't even know how to use a washing machine, much less cook for myself because I never had to! I'm lucky because I learned, but there are still people in their early 30s who don't know these skills because their parents shelter them. This is wrong in my opinion.

Don't get me started!

Well my Dad's parents/grandparents are from Sicily but he was born in the U.S. My mom was born in Rome and moved here when she was 26. I lived at home until I was about 26 But I know how to use a washing machine They are kind of old fashioned but over the last say 10 years my mom has totally broken out of this shell and she is very 'hip' and 'cool' now She doesnt just sit at home and cook and clean.. she has a life and she is always out doing things. My dad is still an non-emotion-showing hot tempered man so between the two they've balanced out me and my brother.

Ok, that's interesting. I'm glad your Mom is cooler now.
