"my dad used to make us eat asparagus"
"thats not abnormal?"
"YOU DONT UNDERSTAND HE WOULD MAKE US JUMP ON A TRAMPOLINE UNTIL OUR LEGS GAVE OUT AND WOULD PUT CIGARETTES OUT ON US"
Like it totally fucking sucks what he put you through and he's a real piece of shit for that, but there's a missing middle of your connective pieces of information here.
Sorry to hear you had to live in an alcoholic and violent household OP. Never had to go through that myself, but I know it can be hell. Hopefully you can as an adult live without that baggage pushing you down. Nothing wrong with sharing your memories and experiences, if you want to get them off your back.
When it comes to zits and blackheads, my mom squeezes any on my sister. Even still, when my sister is over 40. It freaks me out for some reason, not because of anything possibly sexual in that case. I just find it gross and beg her to stop, but I just need to leave the room.
my mom used to pop all of our pimples too, she was a maniac about it and would like go right after them if she saw them. Wasn't bad though she used like a nice hot towel and such. It was kind of like being at a spa but was in the kitchen.
So while it definitely hurt physically because draining nastiness it was not a bad thing. Kind of a funny memory all three of us share especially now that shes passed away :(
and now as an adult I don't really have acne issues at all, not sure if related but maybe?
Wow there is a lot of gaslighting in this thread. Jesus.
Grooming, abuse of authority, covert abuse and cornering.
Whole bunch of things being handwaved away by people because they'ree the fucking reason people don't report abuse because the thought of abuse being a non-obvious checklist to you makes you more uncomfortable than anything else.
My girlfriend likes to pop blackheads on herself and me. I just chalk it up to a weird OCD
Context is entirely different in my situation though
that sounds like a relatively normal parent–child interaction
my mother sometimes squeezed mine
i don't see the big deal
For some reason my sister always squeeze my blackheads, I'm very shocked to see that somehow lots of people here lived similar situations, and it wasn't just something that my sister did
You folks with the normalization are really freaking me out. How do you not see that this is very different than a normal interaction? Why would a Dad ever lay on top of his teenage daughter in bed? EVER?
