April 1996

With my father and mother, upon receiving my BS in Neuroscience from the University of Pittsburgh. When, fifteen years later, I finally came out to them because I simply couldn't take it any more, his response was "You humiliate us," and hers was "I don't know who is going to take care of us; only God will take care of you now, so you'd better say some prayers." Incidentally, they both are fully aware that my philosophy is atheist, so I can only take my mother's comment as an attempt to add insult to injury. Sorry, didn't work. How I pity you both; you never did care enough to know me very well, did you?
