The amount of pressure that southern society puts on young women to impress their older male relatives in order to keep the family name in good standing is honestly despicable to me
And I am not talking about being polite or courteous to older male relatives. I am talking about the whole, “keep quiet, be nice, and don’t say anything that might offend him because you need to impress him as a young lady” bullshit.
I will always be polite of my relatives. But if anyone thinks for one second that I will alter my opinions and attitudes just so I can impress these old men, they can take that backwards shit and shove it up their ass because that is where it belongs.
