Power for Her (and for Him)


Power for Her (and for Him)

Newborns cry and others give them attention. Their cries produce results. Ma and Pa Nature had put democracy into their heads and step by step as they grow they produce it more of it where where they are.

Many are delayed by caregivers or religions. Boys hear Pa Nature; many girls are told to not hear Ma Nature.

@Chris. "Do you want contributors who left religion and authoritarian parents?"

Yes. It was authoritarian religion (Catholicism) and authoritarian parents using emotional and/or physical violence that blocked my early efforts to grow my power.

This group has potential.

Do you want contributors who left religioun and authoritarian parents?

If so there are many who should interact and tell their stories.

My understanding is that Catholics have someting called an age of reason which is about age 13. How does that work?

So, I was in my 40s when I grew the power my sister and brother were growing when they were not yet ten. Seeing the considerable value of what I could have learned early but did learn late, I set out to show others who were wanting to grow their power. What I'm doing here might help atheists grow power. I want to try.

I was 11 when a baby girl joined the family and 14 when a baby boy joined it. I did a lot of childcare (called babysitting then) and didn't know I was seeing them grow their power.

At that time I didn't know my dad's violence had interfered with my efforts to grow my power. I also didn't know the Catholic school my dad had put me in was interfering in another way.
