Rational discussion

When I was a little girl, my father took the family on weekend camping trips. He made my mother responsible for all the packing. It was really stressful for her. If anything was missing, if she packed the wrong shorts or whatever, he would stop everything and scold her non-stop until she broke down. “What were you thinking? Didn’t you even look at the list? What the hell is wrong with you?”

If she tried to answer, he would raise his voice and yell. He would call her names and berate her until she was in tears. Then he’d say:

“Look at you. You can’t even have a rational discussion, can you?”

  1. Oh this sounds familiar. I bet many women have experienced something similar. And sadly a lot of them probably think that they are at fault or could have prevented it. Men think they are perfectly justified in behaving like this too 😦
