    Hola Philco - All I can say is that I can appreciate where you're coming from. I am the black sheep of my family. When I "came out," no one said anything directly, but the dynamic is there. So my response has been to keep my thoughts to myself when I am around them. The good thing that has come out of what I have learned is that they have no more control over their "authoritarianism" as they do over the color of their eyes. Although I am careful not to stir the pot, I no longer feel like I'm the "weird" one. The big challenge for me was to appreciate the fact that "authoritarians" are in the minority . . .
