It's not just families. There was a somewhat controversial article in a top educational journal a few years back about schooling's culture of "compliant cognition" -- of how it's more important for students to think as the teacher wants them to think instead of thinking for themselves.

As for the job, you should just listen to what my HR director told me a couple of weeks ago. My boss, being a boss, is always right and I, being a supervisee, am always wrong. It doesn't matter if the boss contradicts herself, violates company policy, or even violates federal law, she's right.

That is, until the feds come knocking on her door.

It just sucks so much, doesn't it racer, that you're there to work hard, to do a good job, and then you get double-teamed for being who you are and being better than they are.

I'll say it again ... I damn sure am glad to be a man, and a tall white one with facial hair. Our society cuts me so much slack for that, and I don't know if I would have the strength that the women on this board have shown in dealing with being depressed and being employed. I admire every single one of you for that.
