POWER FOR HER (and Him Too)


POWER FOR HER (and Him Too)

Newborns cry and produce results; they get attention and more. Ma and Pa Nature had put democracy into their DNA and, step by step as they grow, they produce it where they are.
Boys hear Pa Nature; many girls are told to ignore Ma Nature. Religion delays more girls than boys.

A family's first children, especially the oldest, have to teach two adults how to be parents. My 18-month older sister did most of the work; my 14-month younger brother and I did some of it. Twelve and fifteen years later two more, a girl and then a boy, joined the family.

Decades later after our parents had died, the five of us had reunions. At one reunion the two youngest said they'd stayed out of trouble by watching their older sister and brothers. My 'baby brother' was nearing 40 and told me he was about 14 when dad made a move to hit him. He told our dad, "You hit me and I'll hit you back."

"Good for you!" I interrupted. When I was 14 he was still playing basketball and would have won.

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 using physical violence to silence me was delaying my efforts to grow my power. I also didn't know Catholicism's using mental bullying to silence me was also delaying my efforts.

I was in my 40s doing politics when I started growing the power my sister and brother were growing when they were not yet ten. I taught power to groups of people, most of them Toastmasters. What I'm doing here might help atheists grow power. I want to try.
