Going to give my exceedingly relevant and personal story here. Serves as rather undeniable evidence of the truths of TRP. For those who don't know, this is, at its core, a re-post of a comment I made earlier, with some additional details.
My mother was a low-SMV extreme feminazi SJW, a racist (while maintaing the SJW status), and flat out insane. Regardless, she had a very comfortable job as an airline pilot making over $200,000 a year. My father, on the other hand, was your typical intellectual BetaBux nice guy. He followed the typical path: he got married and had kids not too long after my mother had hit the wall (it was, after all, her second marriage).
Fast forward several years to when I'm 15 years old and my parents finally got divorced (my dad was no longer of use to her, only making around $80,000 a year for an engineering job). Naturally, everything worked out to her favor: she got the kids (my sister and I), the big beautiful house, $1000 monthly child support, $1000 monthly alimony, and nearly everything else we owned, leaving my dad in a 1 bedroom apartment with barely enough income to pay her. All this was going on while my mother was making more than TWICE what my father was.
Sounds like she got the sweet end of the stick, huh?
Well with woman, enough is never enough! She would insist on
getting payments to help with groceries, have him do maintenance on the house, and not grant him his right to visitation.
Not to mention she was an abusive mother, leaving my sister on the brink of suicide (mostly by hypocritically insulting her weight), and myself spiraling into addictions left and right.
Eventually, I got fed up with all the nonsense. She'd be constantly preaching her SJW and feminazi BS, and if I dared to criticize it (I had yet to discover TRP, but I still had a sense of reality), or express myself in any way, she would unleash quite the tirade.
I had enough. One night, around 1:00 AM, I convinced my Dad to bring the car over and I packed up what belongings I could and took off with my sister.
After we had left, my mother still demanded her monthly child support (probably so she could continue her binge shopping). My sister was 18, so she was left out of it, but I was 16, so everything became about me. I got myself an ad litem, my father got a lawyer, and, both being done with all the fucking shit, we went to war. After a long struggle, we were finally able to turn the tide for child support, and alimony got canceled out (in that both parents are paying alimony of 1000$ to each other.)
It's been 9 months since I left her, and about 6 months since I've seen her. Just last week, I got the message that she was done and wanted nothing to do with me (VICTORY!) There is still a long struggle ahead of us, such as the bulk of my father and I's belongings still remaining in my mother's possession, and dealing with the psychological effects of abuse. However, at the end of the day, I have become a better person from it all. I discovered TRP, started working out, began reading more, became the top mathematics student at my school, and put great focus on general self improvement. Unfortunately, despite how cruel my mother was, my sister too has become a feminist SJW who thinks the world should love her "just because". It's sad, but AWALT is a fact.
Strangely, I'm glad things turned out the way they did. From this, I've become a stronger person. It also serves as undeniable evidence for the truths of TRP, which became another powerful tool in my life.
Thanks for making it through my lengthy word vomit. I hope there was something for you guys to get out of this.
TL;DR: Fuck you. I spent the time to write it, you spend the time to read it.
EDIT: I just wanted to thank everyone for the support, although unneeded, it is greatly appreciated.
There have been a lot of complaint and a lot of praise regarding the TL;DR. Some good points were brought up, but it was nothing more than a way to lighten the mood, and I don't think it should be the focus of the discussion here.
Some people here doubt the legitimacy of my story because my mother was an airline pilot. I assure you, there are many women in the industry. There has also been some doubt of my mothers pay check. Bare in mind, she began her career at a very young age, and has been in the industry for a very long time now (began in her teens, she's now in her fifties), and works for a major airline. This can all be confirmed with a quick google search.
In addition, people have been asking about how my mother got such a good deal. This was a comment I made below in regards to how she got the house, child support, and alimony:
The House: Well, leading up to the divorce, my mother had convinced my father that he was the scum of the earth and the fault of all the dysfunction of the family (this was of course, over a very long period of time. Several years.) After the divorce, he was kicked out of the house, and being as depressed as I'm sure he was, he just went with it and got a shitty apartment. Regardless, the house probably would have been to expensive/time consuming for my father to maintain.
Child support: She used the "fairness excuse" of "we should both be paying an equal amount for the kids". Which, to the intellectual beta, makes sense. Also, my dad assumed it was the norm of the guy to pay child support. It's (disgustingly) what social convention dictates. Throw in the guilt card (remember, he thinks this is all his fault) and you've got your signature.
The alimony: She tricked him into agreeing to the alimony. In short, she told him that it would make sense to do half the child support (which she managed to convince everyone should be $2000 per month, considering I attend a private school) as alimony, because it's a tax write off (which it is).
I'm definitely oversimplifying things, but that's the general idea.
I also would like to point out that many users have either commented below, or PM'd me stating how they had nearly identical stories. This is not some freak event. This kind of stuff happens all the time.
Also, /r/raisedbynarcissists has been mentioned at least three times now, and is a great resource to any one who is going through a similar situation.
