@lettuce: “what did your cousins do to deserve the hate? are they hurting you? or anyone you know?”
First off, I don’t hate my cousin even though her antics make the rest of the family roll their eyes in amazement. But yes – her antics are hurting people. Her parents (my aunt and uncle) spent a while fearing for her life because of the choices she was making. Her sister (my other cousin) was afraid to be at home alone because of her sister’s choices and actions. My aunt would call my dad (her brother) so upset trying to figure out where she went wrong as a mother that her daughter was doing the things she was doing. These people and their choices can and DO hurt the people around them. Acknowledging that doesn’t mean we hate them though; we just hate their choices and the ramifications of those choices.

No, I am not anon and I never post on here usually. I made an account awhile ago because I could not believe some of the outrageous things that the women on here sometimes say. Most of you could definitely benefit by being open minded–but it’s funny that you are so paranoid to accuse me of being someone else. I don’t really care if it’s “against the terms and conditions,” you guys are still being really shallow and I couldn’t stand to not say anything about it. This kind of behavior is what is making the world even worse instead of improving it. Sorry if that’s against the terms, but I wanted to say something anyway. Where I live (NYC) most people are not so close-minded and judgey.

Alright. but are those really the reasons that you are writing about your cousin? It seems more like you’ve listed these reasons to justify yourself, meanwhile you’re really hating on her because her “sluttiness” is just so hilarous to you. If you were REALLY concerned, why not try to be supportive instead of making fun on this website? isnt family supposed to support one-another? it’s more likely that you’re getting off on her failures to be a “socially-acceptable” person like you. schadenfreude is great, isn’t it?

I have two who are currently in jail (one male, one female). One of them currently has her baby daddy’s parents looking after her kid because both her and baby daddy are in prison for drug related offences. The other, nobody talks about but I recently found out he is some form of sex offender.
I also had two cousins who committed suicide which is how I found out exactly how common mental illness is in my mum’s side of the family. Would have been nice to know that *before* I got diagnosed.

Haha I don’t… but FI’s 17 year old (almost 18) cousin – families aren’t very close so they don’t see her very often – just got knocked up and she’s posting all sorts of hideously inappropriate things on Facebook! lol. As in, ridiculous but you just have to laugh type stuff.

Please show me where on this thread I made fun of anyone. Because you’re going to fail because I haven’t done so. I’ve never said I find it funny. Hell – I’ve never even said that I have a slutty cousin so you’re clearly not even reading my posts. I simply stated that I think most families have someone who is a “black sheep” so to say who makes choices and decisions that the rest of the family disagrees with. My cousin is our “black sheep” and her choices and decisions have
really hurt our family. That isn’t a justification. It is simply a fact.

I’m just going to say “yes” and leave it at that…
