  •  even Paula Broadwell must have had that treatment (4+ / 0-)

    because the first two days of news stories about her it wasn't even clear that she had a husband and two children somewhere in the background. They actually quoted her Father about what kind of a person she was...I thought that was creepy and weird and it certainly fits your diary scenario. It would have made sense if they dug up the hidden hubby and asked him, but no...

    ps- I experienced a little bit of distance from my Dad throughout puberty, which I didn't even realize what was different until he hugged me good-bye at school and I realized I hadn't had a bear-hug from him in several years. But I can understand how a blossoming teen can unnerve even a Daddy for a minute, Dads are still men and beauty is still beauty. It's just their job to deal with it, not put it into anger frustration and fear that comes out on the daughter.

    •  I suppose some girls do "blossom" (4+ / 0-)

      me - not so much.  I look like a man because I'm male and always have been.  There was no sudden visit by the tit fairy or being all cutesy - I thought that was gross.  

      So there was no flowering of femininity to be all freaky about, just a vagina I wasn't nearly as concerned about as he was.

      And we sail and we sail and we never see land, just the rum in the bottle and a pipe in my hand...

      •  so I was sort of confused by your whole story- (1+ / 0-)

        were you a female teen who has now changed over? (Sorry for not getting it, I did see your references to penises etc. but I didn't quite follow what you were saying all the way.) At any rate, I was an early bloomer, period at 11, overflowing a c-cup by 13, with raging hormones to go with it. In today's day and age my parents would have been under great pressure to put me on the pill (and by the heaviness of my periods it might have been justified in my particular case) but it also would have been (in my mind at least) a license to...When my own daughter was that age many of her friends had been put on it prophylacticly, but I personally stood against that because I believed in teaching the just say no until you're 18...It almost worked...

        •  I believe technically it's called being (2+ / 0-)

          transgendered, but I don't particularly think that label fits well.   I have a vagina, yes.  I also have a penis of sorts that grew from hormones (enough to have had a bris) and really don't pay much attention to or use either of them.  My wifeish is 3200 miles to the west of me on open ocean - I don't need to use them.  That's for me and her when we get out shit together in one sock.

          I am not particularly "out" about my situation AT ALL, being in the orthodox community and all.  That's private stuff unless I get pissed off or weirded out enough to say something.

          For me, there was no blooming.  Just cramps and blood everywhere - no tits, no hips,  just acne to hell and back, hair in places girls weren't supposed to grow it and a whole lot of confusion.

          I'm also mildly autistic - enough to have some issues, not so bad I can't mostly fake it with other people - but that is mostly what I'm doing - faking it.  So the whole freak out about OMG PROTO WHORE made no sense to me, as I was a little boy inside who liked dystopian fiction and D&D.  Boys? Were for playing more D&D.  Girls?  Unless they read or played D&D we had nothing really in common other than an organ.

        ...but that is not unusual for me.  

        There are far too many people in this culture who think they can impose their obsession on controlling female parts on the rest of us.  It is infuriating, it is hurtful and damaging, and sometimes it is deadly.
